TRUE NATURE YOGA RETREAT
SPAIN, MAY 2023
WITH REBECCA BRADLEY
13 – 17 MAY, ANDALUSIA, SPAIN
Leave city life behind, take in uninterrupted views, and get back to true nature. Your backdrop? A secluded, traditional Farmhouse in the Andalusian countryside, healthy food and twice daily yoga with Yogarise fave, Rebecca Bradley.
UNPLUG. RELAX. RESET.
We literally cannot wait for this retreat. We know that 5 days of yoga with Rebecca would be pretty amazing anywhere in the world, BUT we have discovered a true gem in the olive groves of the beautiful Andalusian countryside. If you are looking to really get away from it all, to unwind, unplug, get back to basics, and enjoy nature, read on…
This very special location promises uninterrupted views without another soul in sight. Blissful, right? Each day will begin with an uplifting, dynamic yoga practice and end with a grounding yin or restorative session in one of two yoga shalas. Midway through retreat, we will journey to the nearby countryside to explore waterfalls, natural springs, or the local reservoir, and for those wanting more, Rebecca will lead a ‘deep dive’ workshop on inversions and arm balances. There will be plenty of time to be still, take in the sunsets (or sunrises), relax by the pool, meditate at night by the fire pit, or dare to take a dip in the outdoor ice bath! And of course, all comes complete with a feast of delicious, healthy food to nourish and fuel you.
We will be staying at Cortijo El Cachete, a beautiful, 150-year old traditional farmhouse situated in 80 acres of land planted with Spanish olive groves and oak trees. There is a gorgeous pool within a walled enclosure, a traditional fire pit, an outdoor ice bath, and a courtyard garden with a back terrace offering dining areas with sunset views over the hills.
The farmhouse has recently been renovated and revamped with eco-friendly considerations to lower its impact on the environment. Waste is sorted and composted on site, working with volunteers who run permaculture projects on the land. You’ll also meet the farm’s furry friends who live on-site, including two friendly dogs and cats.
Classes will take place in one of two beautiful shalas: either on the outdoor yoga platform or inside in the yoga studio, with stunning views across the mountains. All yoga mats and props are provided.
Rebecca caters to all levels from beginners to more seasoned yogis and yoginis, and will tailor the yoga including the ‘deep dive’ workshop to include a mix of Dynamic Vinyasa, Mandala, and grounding Yin and Meditation.
Rebecca is a firm believer that the practice of yoga has a very simple yet magical way of making you feel more connected, grounded and balanced. In her personal life, she organises her day around getting to the yoga mat, so she can feel the benefits in her life off the mat. A retreat is a perfect opportunity to explore this magic and joy with Rebecca’s expert guidance.
Upon completing her 200-hour yoga teacher training in Vinyasa Ashtanga in 2016, she’s gone on to complete a further 320 hours of advanced teacher training in Mandala Vinyasa, Rocket, and Yin with The Yoga People.
She says “I’m so grateful to have this practice in my life and feel very privileged to be able to share it with you all.” If you retreat with Rebecca, she will guide, support and encourage you to move your body intelligently and intuitively, creating more freedom, space, and balance in the body, mind, and soul.
