If you’re keen to re-kindle or develop your existing yoga practice, going on a yoga retreat is the perfect way to deepen your understanding with experienced teachers. You’ll feel the difference in just a few days which is all you need to ignite your yoga flame and kick-start a regular practice back home.
Our popular Pure Yoga Retreats have been voted a Top 10 Yoga Retreat in the World – we’re so proud but it’s not gone to our heads, honest! Ideal for keen beginners and intermediates, these holidays are held near the beach at a gorgeous little boutique hotel in the coastal town of Denia, an hour north of Alicante from where we offer airport transfers at selected times.
Feel your body open up and your yoga practice progress in the twice daily yoga sessions with our experienced, passionate teachers, learn yogic philosophy, practice different breathing techniques & experience mind soothing meditations. And of course, you’ll nourish your body with delicious healthy food and soothing holistic therapies whilst we might tempt you to join the optional bike ride, coastal walk, horse trek or you could just head to the beach & top up your tan.
“As a single traveler I felt wonderfully looked after. Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and energy.” Carole

Our Pure Yoga Retreats – except July – are held at a beautiful little boutique hotel in the historical ‘old town’ of Denia – the original heart of Denia – an hour north of Alicante (airport transfers available). A stay in the old town promises to deliver a taste of the real Spain. You’ll be staying amongst Spanish families in their grand town houses separated by cobbled streets, baroque churches, tapas bars and delicious restaurants and yet, an easy 10 minute walk to the sea.
Our hotel was once a grand family home for a local raisin merchant before being converted into a stylish boutique hotel by the current Spanish owners – who happen to be Feng Shui interior designers so you’ll notice the calm energy as soon as you enter. Located an easy 10 min walk to the sea through the charming vibrant town.
Each of the 15 en-suite rooms are available for single use as we don’t ask nor expect our guests to share with strangers. Each room is unique, furnished with period furniture and original art painted by the owner. The hotel owner also happens to be an Ayurvedic chef (is there no end to their talent?!) so we dine on delicious fresh healthy Mediterranean vegetarian dishes at supper … fish offered some nights too.
Twice daily Yoga & meditation sessions are held in the light-filled studio overlooking the pretty courtyard filled with lush green plants & trees. The studio has huge glass doors we open wide to let the bird song & fresh air into our practice. It’s really lovely space that reminds us of being in a tree-house as the tree tops sway outside the windows.

Each day begins with a cup of herbal tea & fresh fruits whilst you rise from your slumbers. Then we head to our studio for a 90 minute long morning yoga session to open your body & senses to the day. Morning sessions focus on simple flowing sequences to warm and stretch the muscles and open joints, alignment cues to keep you on track, pranayama (breathwork) to refresh your system and meditation to soothe your nervous system.
Breakfast is around 10am by which time you’ll be feeling ready for the fresh fruits, juices, wholegrain cereals, Spanish tortilla, ham, cheeses, sun-ripened tomatoes and avocados, yogurts, nuts, local honey and jams – an excellent start to the day!
Dependent on the day we then have a range of relaxing & energizing activities you can do if you wish or simply, relax at the beach with a good book. If you fancy doing more maybe you’d like to join our 12km guided coastal walk, guided bike ride or horse trek, enjoy pampering therapies or have fun exploring the lovely town of Denia.
The day draws to a close with a 90 minute quieter, more restorative yoga session where we’ll be holding postures for a little longer using the breath to move deeper within to connect with our inner peace.
Evening meals are predominantly vegetarian and inspired by Ayurvedic principles using using fresh, locally grown produce to provide your body with all essential vitamins and minerals to boost your immune system and vitality.
“My experience on this holiday has been wonderful – mainly down to your amazing eye for detail. I’m going home totally inspired, happy and very peaceful.” Kim
