Dear yogi friends,
It has been a while since we last wrote you. Many things have happened in between. Let’s start with the greatest news: we found our own retreat location! We are amazingly glad and grateful that we found such a wonderful location in southern Spain, within such a short period of time. And we would love to share our new home with you! That is why we have planned several interesting and inspiring retreats for the upcoming months.

Our *retreat house* story
When we decided to stay in Spain to start our own Yoga and Meditation Retreat center, we couldn’t have imagined it would go so fast. Only weeks after starting our online search through fincas, casas and cortijos, we found an add (without pictures!) that just sounded amazing. A house in the middle of a national park, with a large yard, no direct neighbors, absolute peace and silence, a small river with potable water running over the terrain…We were a bit hesitant in replying to the add, as there were no pictures, and it just sounded too perfect. However, we did send a message and within two days we were visiting the house, and…totally fell in love with the place! J
Located a little more than an hour’s drive from Málaga airport, and 5 km. into the Sierra de las Nieves National Park, is our new home and retreat center. When sitting outside, watching the amazing view, you only hear the birds, the wind and the sound of water running through the little brook. From the yard you enter the national park immediately where you can walk for hours through beautiful forests and hills. The water from the brook is clear and clean, entering our taps and the swimming pool right from the source. The sun takes care of our electricity, while the heat comes from our cozy fire place. This place is just amazing! And we would love to share it with you.
We hope to welcome you to one of our retreats!
With heartfelt greetings,
