June 29th - July 6th 2013, Yoga and Mindfulness Retreat At Finca El Moro, Andalucia, Spain

Due to late cancellations, there are a couple of spaces available at £550, instead of £840.
Please contact ASAP, if you would like to take this chance. 
Also Camping option is also now open for booking. Please see below. 

Finca El Moro – my favourite destination of all places I visited.
A beautiful farm offering grand 80 acres of landscape where the sophistication and wilderness of Southern Spain meet.
The place is full of life – sweet chestnut grove, olive grove, cork grove and variety of other plants, gorgeous flowers, fruit trees, a vegetable garden. Within the property, you will find many animals living happily – horses in the field, a donkey(s), goats, pigs, chickens, cats and dogs.

When I walk through the land, I always pause for a while and take it all in with my breath to nourish my spirit. 
When I lie down on the edge of one of the swimming pools situated on top of a hill, and look over the landscape, it is so beautiful that it feels as though I am in a dream.

They have 2 lovely swimming pools for you to cool down and sunbathe, hammocks to rest and chill out, gentle places among the trees to be quiet, and plenty of places to walk to. 

Wonderfully delicious and fresh Spanish food (vegetarian) is served 3 times a day.

It will be a great delight for me to share a retreat with you at Finca El Moro, a wild and breathtakingly beautiful place. I hope you will join me there.

How to get to Finca El Moro and Group Transfer:
The nearest city is Seville, about 1.5 hours away by car. They will organise a group transfer from Seville to the venue for everyone. (15 €uros each payable in cash on the day) 
There is going to be only one group transfer on 29th. We will coordinate our flight times - we'll consider which flights will be the best one from UK and other places you come from after Christmas.  Also staying in Seville for one night is often recommended and many will do. A taxi service can be organised, however, it will cost you more (probably around 120 €uros per trip). 
The more details will be given upon booking.

Many people enjoy spending an extra few days to visit places like Granada, Alhambra before or after a retreat.
Main accommodations are high standard cottages offering good taste and comforts.
There are a total of 5 twin rooms and 2 double rooms, spread between 4 cottages. 
All rooms are en-suite. 

Once cottages are full, then they can offer us a wonderful campsite - this is where I stay during a retreat with my teacher and I absolutely love being in the campsite with others. It's like living in a sweet and cheerful communal village.  Outdoor solar showers and eco toilets, there’s a kitchen area with an electric kettle and a fridge, where you can make your teas and coffees.
Each tent (twin sharing only) is provided with a floorboard, 2 single beds, a wardrobe and electricity. So it really is a luxury tent in my standard. 
However, this is only available after cottages are full. 
This is due to the fact that the venue hardly makes any profit from the campsite. It is offered as a courtesy of El Moro in order to accommodate more people to the retreat. If you know that you can only afford to come to the retreat on this basis, please drop me a line, so I can make a note about it. Although, the campsite will not be available to us unless cottages are almost full. 

All the prices below are in Sterling Pounds and are per person for the week, covering accommodation, food and all yoga sessions. (Flights and group transfer not included) 

For Cottages: 
The early booking discount is available if booking is made prior to January 31st  and it is recommended as it is a very good offer and that my retreats can fill up fairly quickly these days. 

Twin sharing: 
Full price  £ 840 
(Couples sharing a double room or a twin room will be the same price as above.) 

Single: (Double room as a single occupancy)
