Time For You!

6 Night Yoga Retreat
in Granada, Spain

Relax and reconnect with yourself surrounded by peaceful woodland and mountains, bathed in the warm Andalusian sunshine 

Saturday 4th - Friday 10th May 2024

A six night/seven day getaway at the picturesque La Hacienda Retreat led by Jo Welch.

 

Leave the rest of the world behind. This is your opportunity to press pause, relax and reconnect with yourself. 

What will the Retreat involve?

​The Retreat is designed to be as relaxing as you choose to make it. Just like in Jo's yoga classes, everything is optional

 

Twice daily yoga classes will be held either inside or outside. One in the morning and a second yoga session in the afternoon or evening.

After sharing a delicious brunch together there will be time to relax by the infinity pool, explore countryside nature trails, spot local wildlife, indulge in a treatment or take part in one of the organised activities for that day… the choice is yours.

A three course evening meal will bring us round the dining table once more to savour freshly cooked local cuisine prepared by professional chefs.

 

You might want to sip a drink as you the watch the sunset, look at the stars, chat with old friends or make new ones. End each day feeling relaxed and renewed.

You choose how much or how little you want to join in and which activities you would like to add in order to create your own retreat experience. 

Example Daily Shedule

  • Light breakfast

  • Gentle Hatha Yoga, breath work and meditation

  • Buffet brunch

  • Free time, treatments or activities

  • Yoga session, either before or after dinner (Hatha/Restorative/Meditation/Yoga Nidra)

  • Evening meal

The Yoga

Twice daily yoga classes will be held either outside on the shaded terrace or inside in the yoga studio.

Each morning Jo will lead a Gentle Hatha Yoga class to get your energy flowing, setting you up for the day ahead.

The second session will vary each day. It might be an uplifting afternoon Hatha Flow on the patio or a slow, soothing Yin stretch in the air conditioned yoga studio or perhaps a Restorative class or bedtime Yoga Nidra relaxation just a few steps away from your room.

We might add breathing practices and chantingjournalling and satsang (discussions). There will be time for meditation and quiet contemplation in the meditation shala or in the beautiful grounds.

All levels of yoga experience are welcome. Jo always encourages students to try variations and modifications of postures in order to find options which allows them to experience Yoga in a way that works for their body.

Accomodation

The Hacienda is a beautifully converted, traditional farmstead now operating as a yoga retreat.

Main House.png

The Hacienda is simply furnished in a rustic, traditionally Spanish style. All of the bedrooms are unique and are located either in the Main House (with private bathrooms) or The School House (with three shared bathrooms), a quirky, adjacent building.  You can either name someone you would like to share a room with or Jo can find you a buddy. See room prices below.

Remotely located at the base of the Sierra Nevada mountains in the Andalusian hills of southern Spain, this small, peaceful complex is set in five acres of private woodland and olive groves with stunning panoramic views of umbrella pine forests and rolling hills.

Away from the hustle and bustle, about 90 minutes from Malaga and only 40 minutes from the historical city of Granada. The nearest village is Montefrio, named as one of the most beautiful scenic village views in Granada by National Geographic Magazine.
