‘Yoga of The Heart’ Spring Retreat

with Emma Warmington & Peter Goodman

Molino Del Rey, Andalucía, Spain

19th to 26th May 2019
 

Join long term friends Emma & Peter for their delicious annual one week yoga retreat at one the world’s finest retreat centers, Molino DeL Rey.

Nestled in the mountains of Andalucía in the remote hamlet of Jorox on the doorstep of Sierra de las Nieves nature reserve, Molino Del Rey has well earned it’s reputation as the best retreat center in Spain and one of the best in the world.

A beautiful, bright, fully equipped yoga shala for our 2 daily practices, partially encaved salt water swimming pool for daily dips, gorgeous comfortable accommodation in beautifully appointed rooms, international standard massage & spa treatments and bright open spaces.

We have plenty of nooks and crannies with hammocks, couches & lounges for complete surrender to quiet time, connection time, rest and relaxation in the sun or in the shade, gazing at the incredible natural surroundings whist breathing in the scent of the mountain flowers, hill walking, horse riding and nature exploration for when you feel more energised days.  There are a collection of incredible caves throughout the property for meditation, chanting together and kirtan singing.  We will be served fantastic much acclaimed food and local wine.  We have just about everything we could ask for on this rejuvenating, relaxing and connecting retreat.

Molino Del Rey is an amazing place, nestled in a little hamlet on the hillside festoon with wild flowers, orange and lemon trees. Peaceful walks, after evening yoga and delicious dinner, amidst this picturesque Yoga retreat were always enjoyed; accompanied by fresh fruit plucked from nearby Apricot and Cherry trees on route. The dwelling itself, which has painstakingly and lovingly evolved over 25 years, is a magical place, with spring water tributaries running in and around the structure. The many colorful mosaics and paintings provide a beautiful backdrop to the numerous nooks and crannies that you can escape to for some solitary down time. Letting go of your normal busy and demanding life style is made easy, especially if complemented with a soothing and relaxing massage.

The morning and evening yoga, lead by Emma and Peter were expertly woven together to suit a mixed ability class, progressively extending everyone beyond their comfort zone. Their different styles of Yoga complimented one another and added a welcome variety to our daily practice. Classes were both fun and challenging. By the end of the week everyone showed a noticeable and discernable improvement, not only in his or her personal practice but also in his or her state of mind.

I am more than happy to recommend this Yoga retreat to all you Yogis with a sense of adventure, curiosity and willingness to immerse in Yoga, set in this beautiful location of Andalucía. Thank you again Emma and Peter.

The Happy Bunch of 2018 ReTREATers

Hatha Yoga with Emma will be breath lead, sometimes yang, sometimes yin, sometimes energising, sometimes introspective and restorative, always breath initiating movement, felt sense awareness, asana, pranayama & meditation as one seamless process –  the exquisite union of body and breath participating in life as it is perfectly given.  If you have not yet practiced with Emma, her teacher Mark Whitwell or another senior Heart of Yoga teacher, we can promise an enhancement to any form of yoga you have previously explored.

Hatha Yoga with Peter will be following the breath as the beginning to all movement. There will be a focus on biomechanical alignment as we transition from one pose to the next. We want to move safely, with good stability and a new found freedom. Finding the “sweet” spot in every pose. We will work on refining our movement creating the ability to filling up our heart with happiness and laughter just because we can. With Peter you will learn: Attitude, Alignment, and, Action.

You complimented each other beautifully with the two different practices each day and I came away from the week having gained more knowledge of yoga, a deeper spiritual understanding of myself and more importantly having met and practiced with a wonderful set of individuals.

I send a huge thank you to both of you for a most wonderful week, which I shall hold, close to my heart, always.
