Understated rustic luxury in the heart of Andalucia

A WEEK OF vinyasa flow & yin yoga with kirsty gallagher 2017

As soon as you open the original heavy wooden gate and enter the cobbled courtyard of this lovely old cortijo, you will be transported far away from the worries of your ordinary life. Firstly, your breath is taken away by the authentic and simple beauty of the house itself - its cool white facade, fine black ironwork and terracotta tiles. Then you realise its position in majestic countryside, surrounded by endless fields, with white horses nearby and mountains in the distance. Once inside, you will notice the wonderful design and attention to detail, and realise that you are in a very special place, really a dream of a location for your yoga holiday!
You will be looked after by Kirsty the yoga teacher and ourselves the creaters of Viva Retreats - Alex and Adrian from Les Passeroses retreat in France. So you can relax and expect the fuss free, yet professional service that we have become well known for!

YOUR YOGA WITH THE INSPIRATIONAL KIRSTY GALLAGHER

Having worked with Kirsty at Les Passeroses for several years, we are thrilled to have her teach and host for Viva Retreats.  Kirsty is an international Vinyasa Flow and Yin yoga teacher, known for her infectious passion for the practice and life. She spreads the yoga love and her enthusiasm for all things bendy and blissful, teaching regular retreats and workshops in the UK, Europe, Asia and beyond. Weaving together philosophy, inspiration and fun Kirsty’s classes will take you on a journey to increase inner awareness, find strength and courage and explore your limitless potential. Her morning vinyasa flow class will awaken your body and mind, whilst the evening's Yin classes are deeply nurturing, offering you a sanctuary from the outside world as you are encouraged to completely let go. You will practice outdoors as much as possible - under the shaded house terrace, by the pool or on the lawns. If needed there is space in the large living room.

MORE ABOUT THE CORTIJO 

Situated near the stunning Andaulcian town of Ronda, the farmhouse exudes calm and relaxation while offering understated, uncluttered luxury and comfort. Everything has been designed with so much attention to detail using the highest quality materials - from the superb lounge, to the spacious, beautiful bedrooms and their equally lovely marble finished bathrooms. Of course, we expect to spend a lot of time outside and this is where the house really excels - with many covered terraces, shady lawns and courtyards in which to relax. However, the crowning glory is the superbly designed pool area, a short stroll away through lavender bordered paths.
Pictures do not do the whole of this place justice - you really DO have to see it for yourself!
