10 Days Yoga and Raw Food Detox Retreat in Spain

Orgiva, Granada, Spain

Raw Food and Yoga Retreat Spain

Re-inspire, reinvigorate and regenerate your health and yoga practice! Come and taste, feel and live the difference! Surrounded by the beautiful nature this retreat is situated in a magical location. A perfect setting to experience the power of yoga and meditation, as well as living on a purely raw food diet enhanced with superfoods!

The house where we stay in three hectares of gardens looks out to the soft folds of the wonderful Alpujarra mountains that lie south of the city of Granada and surround this place of peace. All the rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean and are ensuite. The food is delicious and nourishing and exciting all at once. You can feel its restorative qualities and the zing of its colors in the first mouthfuls.

The day begins with tea and lemon water and the yoga class takes place on the roof of the house under a beautiful pergola from 8:30 to 10 a.m. Tara begins the class with mantra singing accompanied by her beautiful harmonium or guitar playing. There are also special night time sessions. designed to send you off to blissful sleep. A magic experience.

Throughout the course, Tara encourages carefully designed sharing sessions that serve to open up the heart further and help each participant to focus on deeper issues. Some people coming to her courses are in a kind of hiatus with life and need this valuable space and time to transition to the next stage. The experience that Tara provides can also be an opportunity for people to transform not just their health profile but their outlook on life.

Facilities

  • Swimming pool (outdoor)

You will be spending 10 days together near the village Orgiva in a beautiful retreat center, situated in the southern hillside of the Sierra Nevada. It has 2,5 hec. of green and fertile land, because of the old watering system created by the Arabs.

Here in the middle of hundred-years-old olive trees, oranges and lemons you'll find cozy and comfortable cottages. There is the main house with 4 bedrooms that offers single and double rooms and there separate self-contained furnished cottages which offer accommodation for 2 to 4 people. They have 2 bedrooms (each with single beds). 2 bathrooms and a covered porch. You can refresh yourself in a big swimming pool surrounded by tropical gardens. An added attraction is that the city of Granada and the beaches are only a short 45-minutes drive away.

Program

What does a retreat day look like

Breakfast is at 10:30 a.m., a range of delicious juices plus a light dish. Then participants are free to read or exercise in the lovely pool or take walks in the surrounding countryside.

Lunch at 1:30 p.m. is taken under a lovely awning and is usually two courses of colorful and inventive raw food. It comes in all kinds of spirals with amazing sauces, pizza, falafel, stuffed vegetables, and delightful salads.

The evening meal at 7 p.m. is just as delicious and there is often a tantalizing soup to start the evening meal. Attendees feel free to learn about raw foods in the kitchen or workshops with master cooks Pam and Sam.

Afternoon yoga takes place in the garden under 500-year old olive trees from 5 to 6:30 p.m. and you can find yourself really sinking into complete relaxation embraced by the magic of the Alpujarras. Tara’s yoga is designed to bring about awareness of your body in soft and gentle ways. She can embrace complete beginners and those with more advanced practice in the same class effortlessly.

Each yoga class flows at the speed of the participants and Tara is ever vigilant to any sense of discomfort or confusion. She checks and rechecks in a very sensitive way so that her students feel really empowered at the end of each class. Tara breaks up the week with a trip to waterfalls outside the lovely Pampaneira village, higher up in the mountains and another day out to a unique beach with crystal clear water on the coast.

The yoga

We dedicate each day to the energy of one of the chakras, starting with the base. You will be gently taken into a deepening practice of yoga postures, meditation, and pranayama. It does not matter if you are a beginner or an advanced student. We have small groups and so there is lots of personal attention. Everyone can get deeper into awareness of there body, breath and being. Even when you have never done any yoga before then this is a great opportunity to get into a non-demanding practice at your own pace.

The morning classes will be a more dynamic Yang yoga style, while we end the day with a more calming Yin-Yoga practice. Tara will be guiding most of the yoga sessions and sometimes we will invite guest teachers.

The raw food

Indulge in an array of organic, raw and (when desired also) cooked vegan meals. We will show you that eating raw food can be a sensational culinary experience, that delights the palate and leaves you fully satisfied. You don't need much time or special equipment to be able to make delicious recipes, and we are going to show you how!

Healthy menus include delicious and nutritious protein-filled super-foods lovingly prepared. Our chefs will be sharing with you valuable tips and resources that enable you to take your SunFoodYoga experience home with you.
