Our Summer Yoga Retreat Holiday in balmy July has a daily dose of inspiring & uplifting yoga and plenty of free time to relax by the pool, explore the beautiful town, head to the beach, enjoy therapies or join our optional activities. No rigid timetable – just be. Bliss!
Each morning begins with 90 minutes of yoga to open our bodies & senses to the day followed by a delicious buffet brunch. Afternoons are free to spend as you wish or to join an activity available exclusively for our guests: Guided Biking on quiet roads & tracks in the mountains, head to the sea for a spot of Kayaking or Stand up Paddle, brush up your culinary skills in the Spanish Cookery Workshop or pamper yourself with some gorgeous soothing therapies. In the evening, let your taste buds explore the plentiful delicious restaurants nearby or chose to dine at ‘home’ at the hotel watching the sun set over the distant mountains.
“My stay with you has been such a benefit to my inner peace and an inspiration to my yoga practice. I’ve been able to go deeper into my yoga and it’s becoming more and more part of my daily life. Thank you such much for guiding me there.” Rosa
This Summer Yoga Holiday is based at a peaceful 4 star country-house hotel with awesome views in Altea, an hour north of Alicante. The hotel was once a 300 year old Olive farm before being converted into a luxury 4-star hotel with pool, sauna & small gym and 20 spacious ensuite rooms superbly equipped with twin or double beds, individually controlled air-conditioning, TV, hairdryer, safety deposit, Wi-Fi, daily maid service, complimentary toiletries and mini-bar.
Together with the peaceful pool in the garden – ideal for an early morning pre-yoga swim! – there’s also a lovely air conditioned yoga space with beautiful mountain views.
The historical old town of Altea – considered to be one of the prettiest in the area – is an easy 10 minute stroll – with it’s little white washed houses, iconic blue domed church and great views over the bay. Here you’ll find a delicious selection of restaurants, tapas bars, artisans studios and boutiques. A littler further on – 25 minutes from the hotel – is the beach front of Altea, the super clean beach is complemented by a further selection of great restaurants and a lovely long walk along the promenade to the nearby coastal town of Albir.
Our Summer Yoga Holiday programme is different from our other Yoga Holidays in that this holiday offers our guests the freedom to spend their days and evenings how they wish after a morning session of yoga and a healthy, buffet breakfast/brunch.
Each day begins with a pre-yoga mini-breakfast of fresh fruits and herbal teas to help you slowly awaken to the day before the morning yoga sessions which will energise you ready for a delicious healthy brunch before you choose how you’d like to spend the rest of your day.
You’ll be practicing yoga for between 90-120 minutes each morning before brunch. The sessions combine foundation Hatha yoga postures, warming Vinyasa Flow sequences, cooling Yin Yoga and mind calming meditations to improve your strength & flexibility, open & lubricate joints and increase your range of movement.
The level is suitable for keen beginners, those with a lapsed practice & intermediate yogis. Our teaching style is relaxed – no pressure to be perfect. Likewise there’s no room for ego as it’s not what we’re about. It doesn’t matter what other people can do, just work with what you have. Be patient, keep practicing and your body will open up & let you back in.

After your morning dose of yoga and a hearty brunch, your days are free to relax by the pool, head to the beach (25 min walk), take a massage or hydrating facial, join the guided bike ride, learn how to make a traditional Spanish Paella & Tortilla, take to the ocean on a sea kayak or stand up paddle, or simply board the local tram & explore the towns along the coastal strip. Evening time your taste buds can sample the plentiful restaurants nearby or dine at the hotel restaurant. Our retreat manager is available each morning to help with plenty of ‘locals’ advice to help you plan your stay.
Our bodies require good food to keep healthy so each morning after sunrise yoga, a hearty buffet brunch will be waiting for you: sun ripened fruits, local cheeses, freshly cooked eggs, Spanish tortilla, hams, home-made cakes (yum!), wholegrain cereals, nuts, juices, yogurts (soya & regular), teas (inc. herbal), breads, honey & jams. A large and varied spread that will set you up for most of the day. Late afternoon if you’re getting peckish, have a light snack from the hotel or join the locals for a plate of fresh tapas in the beautiful church square.
Where you eat in the evenings is completely your choice. The hotel restaurant serves a mix of traditional Spanish & Mediterranean dishes but if you fancy a change from staying ‘in’, the beautiful old town of Altea is just a ten minute stroll away where you’ll find a wide choice of fabulous alfresco restaurants clustered around the picturesque church plaza or, should you fancy wandering further, head to the beach front where there are even more eateries.
