Family Retreat

"Bright Eyes" Family Yoga Retreat

26th to 31st July 2019

Casería del Mercado, Cástaras, Las Alpujarras, Spain

5 nights 5 days yoga retreat for the whole family to revitalise and harmonise.


Join us for this magical family adventure in nature, exploring the 5 elements of fire, earth, air, water and space through yoga, stories, games, music and real life wholesome fun.  Children sparkle with the magic of life & we invite you to experience this connection with your loved ones on a nature journey.  Bringing attentive focus that is so natural to us as babies to all that we experience, to our senses, to our movement and play.  Supporting energy to flow easily and freely in body and mind, whilst supported in natures embrace we can rediscover the sparks of imagination & meet one another through bright eyes.


Each day we explore a different element.  Mornings include an elemental yoga class for parents, and a yoga, play and story-time session for children, which parents can join in with at the end or enjoy some peaceful, restful time.

In the afternoons, there will be optional group activities, including walks in the beautiful Andalusian countryside, creative play, exploring the farm and more.

At the end of each day there will be a family yoga experience, including partner yoga, massage, mindfulness and meditation, offered in a way that the whole family can enjoy.
