Begur, Spain: May 30-June 4, 2020
Join Petra Coveney and Alan Kelly at Villa Pi Blau - an inspiring yoga retreat on the coast of northern Spain, near the medieval town of Begur.
This purpose-built retreat has been architecturally designed to be ecological using local stone, wood and tiles and blends beautifully into the hillsides. The 100ft squared yoga shala is spacious, light and has a balcony with breathtaking views of the hills and coast below. It is fully equipped with yoga props.
It is just 10 minutes walk down to the crystal clear beaches below in Aiguablava, and 15-20 minutes walk (or 5 minutes taxi) to the picturesque town of Begur with its boutiques, chic shops, cobbled streets, castle - and cafes serving cava and tapas.
The accommodation is in stylish, small bungalows with either 2 or 3 beds. All are en suite with a shower, bathroom and separate toilet.
There are two large guest lounges with sofas, tea and coffee making facilities, and sun lounges by the salt-water eco swimming pool overlooking the sea.
You'll enjoy delicious home-cooked vegetarian or vegan food prepared by an in-house chef 2-3x a day, and dining is either indoors looking out onto the garden, or al fresco under the spanish skies.
You are in safe hands. Alan and Petra and both fully qualified and experienced yoga teachers who teach at Triyoga (London's leading yoga studio) and other venues across London.
