Hidden in the mountains of Andalucia is a beautiful Yoga resort called „Molino del Rey“. I discovered this jewel in the book „Great Yoga Retreats,“ and found that as amazing as the pictures are, the resort is far more beautiful than I had imagined (TASCHEN Verlag)
Looking out into an open valley in the midst of Andalucian mountains, the view from the yoga studio offers the ideal location for a retreat from your stressful life. The owners of the resort, Anthony and Lydia, with love and an extraordinary eye for detail, have created a place that I fell in love with right away. I am sure you will feel the same warmth and love as I did when you visit the resort.
In July 2011, we will practice yoga for one week in the modern and spacious studio in the center of the resort. The studio is surrounded by caves full of magical energy, which provide the perfect environment for meditation. In these caves, we will experience guided meditations in a calm and relaxed environment, free from stress. In addition, you have the opportunity to join chanting sessions in the studio, which was originally designed as a sound studio for signing and produces beautiful resonance for chanting. Of course, these activities are only suggestions; as always, the motto is „All things optional, nothing is a must“.
In addtion to the yoga program, Molino del Rey offers many opportunities for discovery during your free time between sessions: the nature reserve „Sierra de las Nieves“ offers beautiful hikes, and the nearby ancient villages are worth a visit. For those who prefer to chill out, the beautiful salt water pool with natural water fall, or the sun deck offer a great place to relax in the sun. If you really want to pamper yourself, fantastic massages are available for booking at your convenience.
The yoga sessions are suitable for all levels. Beginners will become familiar with the basics of yoga and advanced yogis will be guided into challenging asanas and meditation techniques. The only requirement for taking part in the retreat is an average fitness level, and the wish to experience an unforgettable yoga week. No matter your goal — if you just want to relax or if you really want to „go for it“ and become fit—the retreat offers an unforgettable experience.
Accomodation is offered in the resort’s beautifully designed rooms, in which the owners have decorated by hand with love and care. Double rooms (2 people to a room) are offered; for those who wish to have a room to themselves, a double room can be booked as a single room. There will be delicious vegetarian brunch and dinner (served daily) which is freshly prepared by the Molino del rey team in to the open restaurant overlooking the valley with palm trees and waterfalls surrounding the restaurant tables.
