Discover. Create. Embody.

Nestled in Andalucía’s spectacular Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park just 3km from the Balcony of the Andalucían White Villages, is the charming Lucia Yoga Nature Retreat Center. The collection of rural luxury Spanish villas is surrounded by lush mountains and includes five swimming pools, a beautiful yoga shala, tennis court, gardens, terraces, hiking trails, and breathtaking scenery. Take in the fresh air and sweeping views while you enjoy delicious Mediterranean vegetarian meals, yoga/ movement classes, meditation, breath work, ritual, and exciting local excursions.

This retreat aims to be a container to DISCOVER what stabilizes you, feels like solid footing, and a strong foundation. To CREATE a space to let go, flow, and play. To integrate and EMBODY what it means to practice more presence, authenticity, and self love. Drawing inspiration from the chakra system we will be focusing on the 3 lower chakras: the Root, Sacral, and Solar Plexus. These energy centers, or areas where bodies tend to hold emotions, experiences, and have major nerve gatherings and have corresponding elements of Earth, Water, & Fire. These chakras help us establish a sense of stability, flow, confidence, & inner guidance.

Flamenco Show in Ronda

Dramatic Ronda sits atop the spectacular El Tajo gorge and is the largest of Andalucía’s whitewashed villages. You will have ample time on your own to explore the town in the afternoon, grab a meal on your own, then meet back together for a powerful Flamenco performance in the evening.
