Almeria, Spain 5th – 18th September 2018
Join Good Vibes Founder, Nahid de Belgeonne, for a magical week of movement and mindfulness on the edge of the Cabo de Gata in Almeria, Spain, offering peace and seclusion with a spectacular mountain backdrop. You will enjoy mindful teaching, delicious vegetarian food and great company as well as stunning landscapes for hiking. On this yoga holiday you can expect to unravel from the stresses of your life, rebalance your nervous system, have great conversations and smile a lot!
Nahid will guide you through an intelligently sequenced dynamic practice in the morning and a deeply soothing restorative practice in the evenings with guided meditations. Practices will take place on a fully equipped covered outdoors yoga space.
Nahid recognises the importance of cultivating awareness in the body, and her aim is to deliver the highest quality mindful yoga teaching. Her teaching is informed by current anatomy thinking, somatic body coaching, Pilates and martial arts, yet still rooted by yogic philosophy and meditation, yoga nidra and pranayama.
The yoga sessions emphasise opening, mobilising, and creating freedom in the body, moving through multi-plane movement patterns which in turn allow you to make big leaps in your understanding of how to adapt yoga poses for your body to stay elastic, youthful and reduce the risk of injury and wear and tear.
This immersive yoga week is designed to deeply nourish and recalibrate the nervous system, so that when you do go back to your daily life, you will have the tools to stay emotionally resilient and feel more tuned in.
This holiday is for those who already practice yoga as well as those who want to start tapping into this ancient and powerful technology.
Almeria is Spain’s sunniest region and one of the least visited. Its proximity to North Africa means that the area is semi-desert, dry and dramatic, with imposing mountains and dazzling sea. The venue is on the edge of one of Europe’s most remote and beautiful natural parks, the Cabo de Gata, one of the last unspoiled stretches of Spanish coastline. It’s an amazing landscape of perfect half-moon bays, hidden coves, bizarre volcanic rock formations, and spectacular flora and fauna – a wonderful wild coastline, which you will have seen more times than you think as the backdrop in many films including Indiana Jones, Lawrence of Arabia, and Sergio Leone’s famous spaghetti westerns!
The venue is in a peaceful, isolated location, but within walking distance of the lovely traditional local village, which can be seen across the valley at the foot of the spectacular mountain backdrop.
The venue consists of the main house, which sits in the semi-desert landscape amid lush gardens, its architecture echoing ancient Mediterranean civilizations. Its striking natural swimming pool is fed by spring water and filtered by reed beds.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included in the price, they will be vegetarian but if the group wants it we will have a few fish days.
We take away a maximum of 12 guests, the cost of the holiday reflects the attention and care that you will receive. The cost of the retreat is £1,195 per person sharing or single supplements available upon request. This includes accommodation, all teaching and food.
All pricing is based on shared accommodation and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. The many social and quiet spaces allow guests to enjoy the landscape and relax.
