Reviews

Taking a class with Antonina is pure joy. She explains in depth why we practice yoga and brings us to the present moment. The class is a good mix of challenging, stretching and calming postures. When we leave the class we are invigorated and calm. Antonina has a profound understanding of Yoga, not only the body but the mind and the spirit as well.

Location

Andalusia is a land of contrasts. It has the mountains with the most precipitation in Spain, the Sierra of Grazalema in Cadiz, and the only desert in Europe, the Tabernas desert in Almeria, where the least amount of rain is recorded.
