Welcome to Viva!

We were inspired us to create Viva Retreats in 2016 after seeing just how much our own guests take away from holidays weeks held at our own successful French yoga retreat centre LES PASSEROSES

Viva Retreats is the brainchild of Alex Gonnord and Adrian Luty, who own and run Les Passeroses Yoga Retreat and Holiday Centre in south west France. Described as one of the best yoga centres in the world, our season at Les Passeroses runs from May until October, so we wanted to use our experience to host yoga holidays at other spectacular venues in early Spring and late Autumn.

We recently fell in love with the area of Andalucia in southern Spain, and decided this would be the perfect place to start - having a warm and sunny year-round climate, a spectacular landscape and amazing authentic venues.

So how does Viva Retreats works then?

Our main focus is finding superb yoga holiday venues as we love helping yoga teachers!
 We also organise and run our own Viva Retreats yoga holidays, which can be found on our Holidays & Retreats Page.

We know that a yoga holiday can be relaxing, fun, stylish, luxurious and even life changing!

We also know that the location and authenticity of a house, how it is designed and those little special touches will all contribute to making it extra special. By combining great teachers,  with amazing houses in stunning locations, our aim is to make your week much more than just 'a yoga holiday'. With all the knowledge we have gained from years of hosting, you can be sure that we will make our holiday a special one.


As well as running Les Passeroses in the summer and organising our own Viva Retreats weeks in Spring and Autumn, we also act as agents representing other great yoga holiday venues through Viva Venues.

We offer a range of Viva Venues services to teachers, from a simple introduction to venue owners, right up to full-scale organisation until your arrival there and, possibly even hosting it for you!

Any teacher looking for their perfect yoga holiday centre would be welcome to contact me in the first instance, but you can find out more about what is on offer by clicking below.
