Valencia October 2023 Retreat | Yogarise




Want the best of a city break AND a yoga retreat? You’re in the right place! This autumn, we’re going to Valencia. Voted the best city in the world by expats for quality of life, and awarded the title of European Green Capital for its commitment to sustainability, this sun drenched city has it all (including the beach!) And who best to explore it with than life loving Yogarise fave Andy Kobelinsky?


Like a traditional yoga retreat, your getaway will be structured around two, extended daily yoga practices led by Andy with a fun and uplifting dynamic practice in the morning, and a juicy wind-down yin in the evening. All classes will take place in a beautiful, high end yoga studio in the hip central “barrio” of Ruzafa, while the morning sunrise meditation and night time yoga nidra under the stars will take place from the comfort of your very own outdoor terrace. Andy will also lead a ‘deep dive’ workshop on the beach to help you progress in your yoga practice! So, who’s coming?


We will be staying in a modern, bright and airy boutique apartment complete with its own terrace, bang in the centre of Ruzafa; Valencia’s most bohemian neighbourhood with quirky art galleries, vintage shops, retro bars, cool cafes and excellent restaurants. The setting is intimate with space for up to a max of 14 participants in either shared en-suite triples, twin or single occupancy rooms. In addition to the large outdoor terrace, there is plenty of communal space to relax, read and chat. There will be breakfast and dinner at the apartment with the exception of one evening when we will go out to a local restaurant to soak up the atmosphere. Your local yoga studio is within walking distance of the apartment as are all shops, markets and amenities.


There’s a reason Forbes places Valencia as the best city in the world to live in…with its striking and contrasting architecture, buzzing food scene (it is the birthplace of Paella), wide sandy beaches stretching 12 miles and more than 300 days of sunshine a year, Valencia is a great city to explore. It’s almost completely flat so cycling through the city along the priority bike lanes is easy and very pleasant. Your city escape includes bike rental so you can explore Valencia without ever getting on public transport! And the city is full of surprises! Did you know that Valencia has the largest urban park in the whole of Europe? The Turia Gardens park runs through the city along 5.5 miles of green space where you can read a book and unwind.

In addition to all the yoga, your weekend getaway includes a lunchtime trip to a traditional Paelleria in the outskirts of the city; perfect for a foodie pilgrimage. And for those who prefer the pool to the beach, we’ve got you covered with a swim in a lovely in-door pool along the Turia Gardens.


Andy cartwheeled her way around the world with Argentina’s gymnastics team, before settling in London in 2003. She 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 and grounding Yin and Meditation.

You will always leave Andy’s classes feeling uplifted, challenged and positive about your practice. With her great energy, she will always push you to work harder whilst being equally supportive, funny, encouraging and soulful in her approach to the mind, body, and soul.

As for going on retreat with Andy, you can expect lots of laugh out loud moments! She is fluent in Spanish which is always a bonus.
