SPAIN RETREAT WITH CARO & MICA 
TAUGHT IN ENGLISH

DRISHTI RETREAT

Málaga, Andalusia, Spain

October 11-16, 2022

Focus. This is what we mean when we talk about drishti.

In Sanskrit, it literally means "focused gaze", and is used to develop concentration.

But: what if we used it to cultivate a higher sense of self-awareness?

Or even to find stillness in the fluctuations of the mind?

Where your eyes go, your body follows.

WHERE DO YOU WANT YOUR DRISHTI TO BE?

Join Mica & Caro in wonderful Andalusia to reflect on what you really want to focus on, get out of your routine and find back to yourself with lots of yoga, nature, free time and amazing food.

Taught in English.

This Drishti Retreat close to Málaga in Southern Spain is your chance to get away from everyday life and find what you really want to focus on. Distractions are ever so present in our modern lives and it can be hard to keep our attention and focus on where we really want them to be. What would you like to focus on to feel more aligned and balanced and in touch with yourself?

We'll be starting the day with dynamic Vinyasa classes taught by Mica, in the evening Caro will guide you through relaxing yin yoga classes. The mild temperatures in Southern Spain will allow us to practice outside, get more in touch with nature, breathe in the fresh air of the Andalusian countryside and feel the air and sun on our skin. Our chef Berni will pamper us with delicious, healthy, vegetarian meals to fuel our bodies and indulge our senses. In a special workshop, Mica will provide you with information about Ayurveda and how to find your focus through this ancient practice. A sound bath and a bonfire will bring you more in touch with yourself and your focus.

1:1 Coaching sessions for more focus or Thai Yoga Massages with Caro or individual Ayurvedic consultations with Mica can additionally be booked upon request.

During the day you'll have plenty of time to relax and read by the pool, connect with others or explore the area - hike through the countryside, do an excursion to the beach or to nearby towns such as Málaga or Marbella.

This retreat will be taught in English and is suitable for all yoga levels.

The retreat location

The Casa de la Vida is a cute little escape in Pizarra, about 30km from Málaga. It is located in a secluded area on a hill in the Andalusian countryside, surrounded by nature. The panoramic view creates the feeling of tranquility and space. You can stay in the rooms in the houses (with air conditioning) or in one of the two comfortably furnished yurts. A pool invites you to take a dip and relax.

 

Please note that there are friendly dogs on the property, who will greet you with a wagging tail.

You can either rent a car to get to Casa de la Vida (parking is free), take a taxi or easily use public transportation to get to Pizarra: there are punctual and comfortable trains that take you from Málaga Airport or Málaga center to Pizarra in a short period of time.

Flights and transfer are not included in the price and need to be organized individually. We'd be happy to help you organize the best transfer for your trip.

The yoga

Of course we want to do lots of yoga! We will start the day with a dynamic vinyasa yoga class taught by Mica before breakfast. We will calm down after a day of exploring or relaxing with a yin yoga class taught by Caro before dinner. Since the weather is amazing at that time of the year, we'll be able to do our classes outside, enjoying the fresh air and sun on our skin.

All are welcome! Whether you are an experienced yogi or a newcomer. 

What is a retreat in Spain without amazing food? The sun and warm temperatures in this beautiful part of the world are the perfect basis for colorful fruits and delicious vegetables. Professional chef Bernadita will pamper us with daily breakfast & brunch and vegetarian dinner, made with love from local and seasonal foods.
