Hello and welcome to Blissful Retreat, a sister company to the well established ‘Yoga Breaks in Spain‘. We are Nicole and Gary.
Before moving to Spain in 2003, Gary was a school teacher and Nicole was working in a corporate marketing role and teaching yoga part time. Both working long hours without ever seeming to get anywhere. Sound familiar?
Our daughter, Poppy, was spending 10 hours a day with a child minder whilst we juggled our careers and family with other responsibilities. We felt exhausted, but still we carried on (how?!) until a serious illness forced Nicole to slow down and think about her lifestyle.
It was at this low point that she realised yoga bought her more peace and joy than the trappings and wealth of a successful corporate career. “I just felt happiest when I was on my yoga mat rather than behind a desk. I spent months ignoring this nagging truth until my body just couldn’t take the pressures of my manic lifestyle anymore and I became quite ill”.
So, faced with having to address the way they lived, in 2003, they moved to Spain to take a much needed pause from the pressures of UK living and to take a long hard look at what they wanted (& truly needed) in their lives. It didn’t take long to realise the sunshine, blue skies and beautiful scenery were the perfect place to run yoga holidays for stressed individuals just like they used to be.
In the time we’ve been running yoga holidays and health retreats in Spain, we’ve gained an incredible insight into which ingredients are essential for the perfect healthy holiday. We listen carefully to guest feedback and ‘tweak’ the programmes where necessary to create the polished, yoga inspired wellbeing holidays that we offer today and that has been so highly rated by our guests and various health magazines.
We’re so proud – & blushing! – to be included in the Top 10 Yoga Retreat of the World (woo-hoo!), but promise it’s not gone to our heads.
We are more than happy to answer your questions as we appreciate your holiday is precious. We’re always honest & open and will give you all the information you need to help make a decision to join us – or not!
