We are very excited to announce that we will be holding a week long Yoga Retreat this September, in the secluded Villa La Pena, located in Tarifa -the southern most tip-of-Spain, where the Mediterranean and the Atlantic meet.
The retreat venue sits in a stunning elevated position in the La Pena area of Tarifa, nestled between mountain and sea with a panoramic vista over miles of sandy beaches. It faces the Straits of Gibraltar, looking out east across to Morocco's Rif Mountains and west to the Port of Tangiers. There is a distinctly North African feel with the whitewashed streets and there is a general laid back atmosphere around the windswept walled town.
The centre facilities include both an indoor and outdoor pool, beautiful accommodation with air conditioning, a yoga studio with props, and an outdoor yoga & meditation platform, massage room and lots of space inside and out for reading, contemplation and relaxation. For the duration of the retreat, the villa will be OURS - ours being an intimate group of 12 Yogis.
The beach is within walking distance and Tarifa town is 5 minutes by car. There are plenty of things to do, and Tarifa is world famous for its watersports whether you fancy kitesurfing or stand up paddleboarding. The ferry to Tangier, Morrocco only takes one hour so there will be the option of a day trip.
FLIGHTS: Flights are not included. The closest airport is Gibraltar, however, we suggest flying to Malaga direct from Edinburgh.
