Nice, I would love to join!

Do you recognize this?

You have less energy and no motivation to tackle things.

You experience annoying ailments or often have pain in your back, neck, and shoulders.

Your head is filled with plans and good ideas, but you never get around to them.

Reviews about the retreats

“The delightful yoga classes

Last May, I attended Ilse’s yoga retreat. I was in need of peace, some time for myself, and searching for new, positive energy. In this, I succeeded completely, with the help of Ilse, the fellow participants, and Alejandro.

It truly feels like a gift! This week was truly amazing.

The location is beautiful, in the mountains with stunning views of the surroundings. The accommodation is fantastic, authentic, with breathtaking views.

We were treated to delicious meals, and it was always a joy to see the delightful dishes on the table. Healthy and with so many different flavors.

The program was perfect. Lots of variety with different types of yoga in various beautiful locations (in the gardens, on the beach, on the mountain, and in the old mill), a singing bowl session, a hike, a cooking workshop, and a massage. Additionally, there was some time for yourself every day.

I also found it very special to notice how easily connections were made within the group and how quickly everyone opened up. Without any obligations, by the way; if you didn’t feel like talking and wanted to retreat, that was perfectly fine.

And ‘last but not least,’ Ilse… the delightful yoga classes, the conversations, her enthusiasm, her ability to adapt quickly. Gracias Ilse! And continue to pamper people with your retreats!

In the moments when we did yoga exercises in the garden or on the beach, and I briefly let the surroundings sink in and felt the wind blowing, I was completely ‘happy.’ I carried this feeling home and hope to hold onto it for a long time.

I will definitely participate again!

As an entrepreneur, I got fully caught up in the daily grind.

I wanted to find more peace and had a keen interest in yoga and meditation. And what better way to get acquainted with yoga and meditation than under the Spanish sun.

It felt like coming home right away at the beautiful location. A place equipped with all conveniences, with lovely atmospheric rooms, beautiful gardens, and a delightful pool. And what surroundings; the most beautiful views of Andalusia!

Ilse-Marie’s sessions were perfect for me. Thanks to Ilse-Marie’s time, attention, and passion, I quickly got into the right flow of yoga and meditation.

But also, the delicious meals, the beach visit, and the peace between the sessions (definitely book a massage) make the retreat a must. Everyone who contributes to the yoga retreat does so with dedication and passion, making the retreat truly special and personal. Whether you are fully familiar with yoga or, like me, a beginner, after returning from the retreat, you are completely relaxed and continue with yoga and meditation with great enthusiasm.

I will certainly participate again!

Martha Delcliseur

Without any experience or knowledge, I boarded the plane to Spain, and I haven’t regretted it for a second. The surroundings are beautiful, the food delicious, and the program is accessible for every level.

However, if I were to go again (and the chance is very high), it would be mainly for the fantastic atmosphere that Ilse manages to create; relaxed, open to everyone, and with a good dose of humor.

In short, whether you’re a yoga enthusiast or just looking for a ‘structural break’; book now!!

LOCATION SPAIN: CANUELO

Stay in a beautiful little hamlet with beautiful lake & ocean views

Small whitewashed Casas and casitas in a mountain hamlet, with a rustic on-site bar and pool, surrounded by birds, bougainvillea and breathtaking views.

It’s a steep climb through olive groves to reach the hamlet of El Cañuelo. Perched high in the mountains, with clear views to the 25 km-distant Med, it’s a wonderful place, and the nice holiday homes with their terraces merge charmingly into the traditional village; Rafael the goatherd’s house is opposite.

 

>

 

 

The cute houses are not very luxurious, but El Cañuelo is as authentically Andaluz as it gets. It has a lot of charm.

Step outside and you’re in a bird-sung world of bougainvillea and sunshine: take to the village trail, explore the nearby markets or drink in the spectacular views.

There is a bar in El Cañuelo that we can use during our stay. The bar has spacious outdoor terracing with spectacular views. Indoors there is space for several tables and there are two fireplaces for winter use.

Swimming pool

The swimming pool, called locally the ‘Mickey Mouse’ because of its shape, is 7 x 7 meters with the two small ‘ears’ one with a depth of 90cms and the other about 15cm. The main pool is 2m at its deepest point. The Bar and location have WIFI.

The Yoga Shala

There is a beautiful, recently refurbished, spacious Yoga Shala. It has big windows with a lot of light coming into the room.

Furthermore there are several platforms/ terraces where we can do the yoga outside if the weather permits it.

 

 

IS THIS RETREAT SOMTHING FOR YOU?

Is this yoga retreat right for you?

People come to us for various reasons. Whether you need some time for yourself in a beautiful location or are going through a challenging or emotional period, our yoga retreat caters to everyone.

Regardless of your experience with yoga and meditation, our workshops are suitable for both beginners and those seeking depth. Even if you have never practiced yoga or meditation before, you are welcome to join our workshops. We provide a pleasant and warm environment where everyone can participate and feel comfortable.

At our retreat, it’s all about your well-being. That’s why we tailor our classes and exercises to your level and any injuries. This way, everyone can fully enjoy our retreat.

Curious about why other participants have chosen us?

We’ve listed a few reasons for you:

– Sometimes you need peace to clear your mind and recharge with new energy.

– It can be nice to take a break from all obligations and your to-do list. Just not having to do anything at all.

– Perhaps you are between jobs and would like to take a break.

– If you are always taking care of others, it can be challenging to take time for yourself. A retreat can be a beautiful way to reconnect with yourself.

– Are you dealing with burnout, sleep problems, restlessness, or stress? Or do you have chronic tension in your back, neck, or shoulders? Our retreat can help you cope with these challenges.

– If your mind is cluttered, and your creativity is blocked, or if you have many ideas but cannot focus, a retreat can help you think clearly again.

– Perhaps you are in a difficult relationship or have just come out of one. A few days for yourself can be very valuable.

It is for anyone looking to find peace in nature and explore what is truly important in their lives.

We consciously choose to work with small groups; during our retreat, there are typically between 10-15 participants, depending on room arrangements.

 

What kind of people come to our retreats?

Curious about the people who come to our retreats? Our participants are very diverse and vary from group to group. We welcome men and women of various ages and backgrounds. Most people come alone to our retreats, but we also often have friends or family members who come together.

What we notice is that each group already has a great connection upon arrival. This creates a relaxed atmosphere and meaningful conversations during the retreat. Even after the retreat, many groups continue to stay in touch. However, there is also complete freedom to retreat to one of the beautiful spots in the tropical gardens.

All our activities are on a voluntary basis, so you can decide what you want to do. The most important thing is that you can enjoy this beautiful place in Andalusia and that you don’t have to worry about anything for a while.”

 Algemene Voorwaarden

Tickets & Transfers

The airport to fly into is Malaga Airport.

Many airlines fly to Malaga. You can book your flights with KLM, Transavia, Ryanair, and Vueling, for example.

Arrival flight: You can book a flight that arrives on the starting morning (best arrival before 12:00 noon) and arrange the shared transfer through us.

Return flight: You can fly back from around 3:30 PM if you want to take the shared transfer. There are often two shared transfers: one at 12:00 PM (1:30 PM at the airport) and another around 2:00 PM.

Shared transfer: Pick-up and drop-off at the airport are possible with both the fixed-time shared transfer service and a private taxi. You can also be picked up or dropped off in the center of Malaga (Plaza Marina). The shared transfer is 35 euros per person for a one-way transfer (70 euros for a round trip) when traveling with the rest of the group.

It’s approximately 90-100 euros per person for a one-way transfer/taxi.

You can be picked up or taken to Malaga Airport or to the center of Malaga (Plaza Marina).

The shared transfer departs from the airport on the starting day between 11:30 AM and 12:30 PM to the finca. The final time depends on the flights of the participants; we try to plan it so that as many participants as possible can use the shared transfer. (Multiple flights arrive in the morning between 8:30 AM / 11:00 AM)

On the last day, a shared transfer departs after brunch/lunch (12:00 PM) coordinated with flights in the late afternoon. If necessary, a second transfer may take place in the afternoon if several people take the evening flight back (around 2:00 PM).

We highly recommend booking a day in Malaga before or after. This is a super relaxed city near the beach. Many participants do this before or after. It is also possible to be picked up or dropped off in the center of Malaga.
