Whatever your goal - kick-start a healthy lifestyle, practice or learn yoga, feel more alert or energised or simply relax and get away from it all, this yoga retreat provides the perfect setting. Located on Spain's beautiful Costa Blanca in a charming town with stunning mountain views and just a short walk to the local beach.

Your yoga sessions will leave you invigorated and relaxed, taking place in either the light and airy indoor yoga studio or on the roof terrace with fantastic views of the mountains and sea. As well as yoga, you will also be able to join in other activities such as beach walks, exercise classes and meditation workshops for no extra cost.

Highly trained and friendly staff will be on hand to guide you through the week and offer you advice and guidance during your detox and activities. Drawing on years of experience and training to provide nutritional advice as well as energising, informative and relaxing activities to ensure you make the most of your time there.

All your meals and juices are included so wonderful vegetarian meals will be provided daily and prepared on site. You’ll have the option to choose a juice diet if you prefer and are free to decide when you are there.

Your detox programme, should you choose it, will be based around an alkaline diet and exercise. Juicing is a big part of the programme but it has been designed so you can choose when and how you would like to manage your diet - you have the flexibility so if you are hungry, choose a meal instead!

Accommodation is set in traditional Spanish style shared or private apartments with all the comforts of home. With gardens, terraces and swimming pools where you can relax and soak up the peaceful atmosphere.
