Retreat means disconnecting and reconnecting. With the Spanish sunshine, the long sandy beach and the deep blue ocean, we offer you the perfect retreat to get away from the stress and routine of everyday life, to really come to rest, slow down and be mindful. For all consciously-living yoga beginners and advanced students we offer with our Yoga Specials a wide selection of deep Yoga experiences, depending on what goals you have set for your journey.
Besides our own yoga weeks like the A-Frame Yoga Holiday and the Surf Yoga Holiday we also offer Yoga Retreats. External guest teachers come to El Palmar and accompany you for one special week of yoga. From an Ayurveda Yoga Retreat, Jivamukti Yoga or Vinyasa Yoga Retreat to Life Coaching and Yoga we offer a wide selection of different Yoga experiences. So you have the opportunity to choose the yoga style that suits you best. You can find an overview of all upcoming yoga retreats on our yoga page.
Most yoga retreats as well as the open yoga classes currently take place in German. The Anusara® Yoga Retreat with Inga is held in English and is ideal for yogis from all over the world.
How about a yoga retreat by the sea? During a yoga week in El Palmar you practice yoga with a sea view every day. Our yoga house is located right on the beachfront and offers a beautiful view across beach of El Palmar. During your Yoga asanas you can watch the waves and surfers or just close your eyes, listen to the sea breeze and breathe in the salty air of the Atlantic Ocean. This is pure relaxation.
In addition to overnight accommodation near the sea and fantastic healthy food, all yoga equipment is included in your yoga retreat. At the Yoga House you will find everything you need for a yoga class:
- Yoga mats
- Yoga blocks
- Yoga straps
- Eye cushions
So you don't have to bring anything but comfortable clothes and yourself.
When you come to do yoga at A-Frame Camp, you are in the sunniest region of Europe - southern Spain. Here in Andalusia we are just a few miles away from the African coast and therefore have consistently sunny and mild-to-hot weather all year round. 3000 hours of sunshine a year is all you need to know! As you can imagine, Andalusia is especially popular in winter when you can escape the cold and grey for a few days or re-energizing and relaxation in the sun. The days are long and light with the sun not setting until 6.30pm even in the depths of December.
Besides your yoga retreat you can surf here, relax on the beach or discover the sights of Andalusia. Southern Spain is known for its delicious tapas, being the cradle of flamenco, the beautiful white villages and of course for the warmth of its people.
f you are not sure what a yoga retreat is and how it differs from our yoga holidays, here is the explanation: On one hand The A-Frame Yoga Holidays and the A-Frame Surf & Yoga Holidays are organized by us and the yoga classes are held by Katrin or Jana. On the other hand, the yoga retreats take place in our camp, but the yoga classes are given by external guest teachers. They usually come to us once a year to offer a unique yoga retreat. Through our guest teachers we can offer you a greater variety of different yoga styles and yoga teachers.
A Retreat gives you the opportunity to take time away from everyday life, to focus on yourself and to find a way back to your true self. It can be a very personal and peaceful time out from the noise in your life and away from anything that is bothering you. Or simply a time just for you alone to be at peace and gain a new perspective.
