What would you get from going on a retreat?
The most important thing you will get from going on a retreat is time to connect and get back in touch with yourself to restore your inner peace and calm. A retreat is a way of taking time out and assessing life decisions that enables you to bring clarity to the direction in your life and any challenges and opportunities that lay ahead.
If you are looking for rest and a tranquil scene, then this retreat will be perfect for you. The retreat includes Pilates and meditation daily alongside some quality time relaxing and enjoying some soulful rest. My lovely retreat host and I will put together a gentle timetable that includes daily Pilates, guided meditations, rest, relaxation, and of course reading and a bit of sunbathing
The retreat will be an opportunity to detox from life’s busyness and allow you to relax and enjoy some great healthy food and calming Pilates exercise.

Where does this retreat take place?
This Spanish Serenity retreat venue is situated in the heart of Spain. Andalucia is the southern region of Spain and it is world-famous for its amazing climate, flamenco, tapas, fiestas, beaches and diverse geography.
The retreat is in a beautiful part of Spain which is a wonderful place and a great location to explore Andalucia. A walk up the valley between the olive groves and you will be able to buy fresh vegetables from the local market and enjoy tapas and fino in one of the bars – fino is the local dry sherry.

What food will you enjoy?
The food on the retreat is lovingly prepared using the freshest local ingredients. We will prepare a wide variety of healthy nutritious, vegetarian meals. Ensuring that the meals are well-balanced with a great variety.
The meals are created to get the right balance of macros including enough protein from lots of different types of foods including pulses like quinoa. The meals combine cereals and legumes as ‘complementary’ proteins for example beans and rice or houmous and bread which will provide a biologically ‘complete’ protein.
This thoughtful and creative planning ensures that each meal is delicious as well as incredibly healthy.
The important question…how hot is it?
Similar to the majority of Spain in April; Andalucia has pleasant temperatures with beautiful blue skies. The temperature begins to steadily increase during April reaching 20 ºC on occasions and peaking at an average of 21.8 ºC. However light winds or breezes feeding in throughout the day will make the days feel cooler.
Spring and early summer is the best time of the year to travel to Spain. It’s a period of mild temperatures across the area and with spring comes an abundance of nature and freshness.

How will you feel after the retreat?
If you find sitting quietly isn’t possible, then after this retreat, you will know that mindfulness and stillness can be approached in a different route. A way of being that becomes part of your day. It is as simple as becoming aware of yourself and I know from experience that once you understand something you can never ‘unlearn’ it.
You will come away from this retreat with new skills to approach life’s ups and downs. Your challenges will be viewed from a different perspective
