Valle deVida, Andalusia

19th-26th October 

Join me for a week retreat in the beautiful Andalusian Hills, an easy drive from Malaga (airport transfers will be arranged).

Arriving around lunchtime on Thursday 19th October we will begin practising on Friday morning, on the hilltop Yoga platform and have two optional two hour practices each day except for Monday we will then depart after breakfast on the Thursday 26th. On the free day there will be an optional outing (to Malaga or Ronda), or you can have a day to yourself. 


The food will be delicious, homemade, and mostly vegetarian, there will be occasional fish options, and your dietary requirements can be catered for. There is an honesty bar for soft drinks, with some alcohol available too. Filtered water, tea, coffee and fruit are freely available all day.


Our practice together will be slow and mindful, giving you a chance to delve deeply into yourself, exploring playful, meditative movement and breath-work.

Valle de Vida is set in eighteen acres, has a luxurious swimming pool, treatment room for therapies, hydrotherapy pool and sauna. Accommodation is either in the main house or in one of their teepees, ME-Pods, or Geodesic domes for those that prefer to be a little closer to nature. The range of treatments available is extensive and the quality is always excellent.

 There are some photos and a video here, but for more information on the venue visit

Tanya's retreat in Andalusia 2017 exceeded my expectations on many levels. Tanya's teaching always takes me to new territory within my body and I feel refreshed and freed up in body and mind. Her heartfelt connection to her own self enquiry is obvious by the way she conveys new concepts and detailed cues to take you deep within your own form. Her imagery and tactile cueing is extraordinary and her ability to ground you in your body and mind is a sure outcome of her work. The retreat centre was the perfect backdrop to Tanya's understated sense of style. The rustic charm of Valle de Vide was a visual inspiration and the food some of the best I've had on retreat yet with a chef who doubled up as a sound healer! All in all I took my practice to a new level in lands where Moorish meets Europe and met some likeminded spirits on the journey... you will not be disappointed with this experience!
