Andalucia is Spain’s southernmost region, stretching from the Mediterranean Sea in the east to the Portuguese border in the west. The main attraction of the landscape of Andalusia centres on its impressive contrasts: mountains and beaches, deserts and salt flats, plains and countryside where Mediterranean crops alternate with pastureland.
Between the highest mountains of Andalusia and the Mediterranean Sea, The Alpujarras is one of the most enchanting and beautiful regions of Spain and where our training will be. Our meeting point will be in the town centre of Orgiva, 25 kilometeres from the retreat center.
The training is held on a beautiful Andalusian style Eco-Farm. The property is situated on the edge of the Sierra Nevada National Park and where you can enjoy a variety of local fauna and flora. At 1250 meters above sea level, this Centre offers the best of fresh clean mountain air and the southern Spanish summer sun.
This Eco-Farm has been adapted as a retreat centre with traditional Spanish accommodation, a natural mineral water swimming pool and two Yoga Shala’s; one indoor and one outdoor. The main Yoga Room is spacious and has a broad view of the surrounding mountains. The accommodation rooms are simple, clean and comfortable, appointed in the same manner found in Ashram style living, and there are single and shared rooms available.
In our trainings diet plays a fundamental role. All our meals are vegan/vegetarian and 80% of the ingredients are organic. Most of the vegetables are comming directly from the eco-farm we are staying and all the meals are prepared by a qualified macrobiotic chef. We have a module on nutrition in the course and you´ll learn the principles behind our food preparation.
