Granada in Spain unleashes fantasies of a quaint old Andalusian town nestling in the mountains, the Alhambra palace-- brooding red stone walled fortresses against the violet slopes of dusk, tangerine trees by the avenues, and quaint tapas bistros to check in at the nightly solitude.
Come home to yourself in the majesty and celebration here in the city of arabesque walls, old fortresses, grand citadels, colorful Andalusian art and culture, Arab tea houses, and flamenco dance music on this yoga retreat. There will be much to explore outside and within, ultimately converging in the joyous, ever pulsating beat of life in these parts of ancient Andalusia.
From the spectacular Alhambra to the mystical mountains of Alpujarras, from the orange slopes of Sierra Nevada down to the Costa Tropical comarca of Salobrena where skiing is popular, from the olden souks brimming with laughter and color to the flamenco dance bars and warm little tapas bistros -- it’s a celebration of life everywhere you go in Granada.
Take your sweet time, collecting old lores and fables from the ever buzzing streets and lose your heart in the gorgeous warm climate and the wide mountainous stretches, with one step taken everyday in learning a variety of yoga styles at the retreat. Make this journey about living the glamorous fantasies of the fabled Andalusia and revitalizing with yoga and the good life!
Lucia Yoga Retreats far exceeded any of my expectations. I hosted my first retreat in June 2018, and needless to say I was nervous. Antonio and Patricia were there for my partner and me every step of the way. We spoke with Antonio via video messenger and text for an entire year before the retreat. All of our participant information was well organized, and he was incredibly responsive with any questions.
