In today's world, we use to face multiple stress, inducing demands and pressures, as well as constant connectivity through media devices. You are managing numerous fluctuating priorities and balancing competing demands for your personal and professional goals. You are constantly extroverted, identifying with the senses and the external environment. This retreat is made to help you find the balance in life through skillful action and harmony between head and heart.
Core Subject: Yoga Teacher
My approach to Yoga is to help people to experience more sensations instead of more thoughts during their yoga practice..
This retreat will take place at the Axarquia region - situated in the eastern part of the province of Málaga. Competa is an inland village in the Axarquia, well-known for the Andalusian legacy of Muslim rule.
The location is a privileged tourist destination surrounded by olive groves, almond trees, and a 4000-hectare wildlife reserve in Sierra Almijara, just 15 to 20 kilometres from the main tourist attractions of the Costa del Sol, including the beaches of Torre del Mar, the famous caves of Nerja, and within striking distance of Granada, Sierra Nevada, and other places of interest.
- Check in At 15 p.m.
- Check out 12 p.m.
- Group size Maximum 10 persons.
This allows for Yoga Eco Oasis to give a lot of personal attention to each student's development.
Please bring loose clothing for practicing the yoga postures. Also, bring a shawl for meditation practice if you have one.
What to bring
Yoga Eco Oasis has yoga mats which you are more than welcome to use. Alternatively, if you prefer to bring your own mat you are welcome to do so. Please bring aloe vera if you are going to sit by the pool. Bring insect repellant too just in case. They recommend citronella based ones as they are more natural. Remember your travel adaptor if you are bringing a laptop etc. There are towels, organic shampoo, and organic body wash provided for you to use too.
If you would like to spend a few days before the retreat or after the retreat in the beautiful city of Malaga, there is a lot to see there. You can visit the lovely Pablo Picasso museum, walk along Malaga beach, visit the ancient Arabic castle of the Alcazaba and the Hamam baths, see the Cathedral, enjoy some tapas, or go to one of the lovely vegetarian restaurants there. You can rejoin Yoga Eco Oasis afterwards at the airport for transfer. Taxi, bus, or train are cheap and easy to arrange between Malaga airport and city.
Retreats start on Sunday evenings and last till Friday afternoon. It is best to arrive Sunday morning and leave Friday early evening. The yoga retreats are suitable for students of all levels including beginners because all the classes are personalized for the students on each particular yoga retreat. Their aim is for you to move at your own pace, at a pace that you enjoy and feel comfortable at. The yoga taught at their yoga retreat center uses movement and flow from one posture to another to bring the student closer in awareness to the breath and to give them the experience of meditation. Practitioners from all backgrounds should gain benefits of meditation and inner silence by practising at Yoga Eco Oasis.
The classes involve postures that can put pressure on the uterus. Whilst the exercises help with your health at normal times, they may disturb the developing baby during pregnancy so if you are pregnant, Yoga Eco Oasis prefers you go to a retreat that will help you with the specific parts of yoga that are designed for pregnancy, such as breathing and hip opening. -Additional information For more information, ask your questions directly to Yoga Eco Oasis, who will be happy to assist you.

The aim of this retreat is to help the patrons achieve the standards of holistic living. We focus not just on teaching yoga, but also on making the yogis aware of health and nutrition with the best knowledge available in the world. The teachers on this retreat are experts in nutrition, and, as a result, the week that you spend here will be full of delicious and healthy recipes. We will also conduct workshops on nutrition and healthy cooking.
The emphasis will be on locally grown organic fresh fruits and vegetables as well as wholemeal foods, antioxidants, and low-glycaemic living.
You will be explained the health benefits of the food we use – the locally produced organic food that is free of pesticides and foods made from spelt. You will return feeling like you have learned the best secrets of healthy cooking, living and practicing yoga.
Yoga Retreats Ecoasis
Yoga Eco Oasis was created by a group of people with the purpose of creating a space in nature where one can connect with cosmic energy and above all, with oneself. The space started by being an eco space where nature was respected and from where Ana and José Antonio’s knowledge, as co-founders of Eco Oasis, could be shared as much in terms of nutrition as natural health.
Our objective is to make available to you all the necessary elements to help you clear the way to self realisation and achieve personal development.
