Mountain Light Retreat


THIS RETREAT IS SOLD OUT.

Mountain Light Retreat returns for the second time at Casa Dana in Andalucia, Spain.

I hope you can join us for a long weekend of immersive yoga and meditation and practices, healing, ayurvedic nourishment, nature and rest in the mystical hills of Southern Spain.

Casa Dana sits on the hillside just beneath the traditional whitewashed village of Gaucin. The villa is set in stunning gardens which will be in full colourful bloom at this time, as will the hills with wild flowers. The views from the terrace stretch over the Spanish hills and coastline to Africa and beyond… you can lose yourself in the horizon for hours. There are seven beautiful and individually decorated bedrooms and plenty of corners and caverns for reading and relaxing.

THE RETREAT

The retreat will start on the afternoon of Friday 21st April and we will be arranging pick up from the airport around lunch time to collect from the morning arranged flight.

We will open the retreat in ceremony on Friday afternoon and practice that evening before our first meal together. Each day we will greet the rising sun over the mountain tops with quiet morning meditation and contemplative tea break.

This will be followed by our morning yoga practice before a long lazy brunch. The afternoon will be for treatments, exploring the local area, reading, relaxing, and long walks. The retreat will also include an afternoon Ayurvedic self care workshop and a special trip to nearby Ronda.

We will have our second practice each day in the late afternoon followed by dinner together.

The retreat will officially close on Tuesday 25th April after morning practice and breakfast.

We will arrange drop off back to Gibraltar airport for the suggested flight.

FOOD & AYURVEDA

Our meals will be vegetarian, locally sourced and lovingly prepared by our chef Selina Van Orden. Selina will be cooking nutritive and delicious food, with an Ayurvedic leaning, leaving you feeling light, bright, and full of energy. By eating things that suit your system and the season, you will feel at ease and in balance. 

Selina will be available for an Ayurvedic consultation prior to the retreat, allowing your diet and time there to be tailored to your constitution and needs. Please mention this via email if you are interested to book in with Selina.
