No matter what your level of yoga experience, you are welcome on this refreshing and rejuvenating retreat.

Our home for the retreat will be surrounded by dramatic peaks, lush green hills, deep gorges, and crystal clear rivers. We will walk through scenic gorges, and alongside babbling brooks.
Juan Carlos and Judy operate the delightful Hotel Fuentes de Lucia, situated in a spectacular and untouched corner of northwest Spain. The recently converted farmhouse rests on the hillside of a green valley in the hamlet of Faedo and is part of the Natural Park of Las Ubiñas-La Mesa in the heart of Asturias. This lovely little hotel (turned retreat center) will be entirely ours for the duration of the retreat.
What does each day look like?
Start the morning meditating, followed by an energizing yoga session. We will then have a hearty breakfast in the main dining room, formerly a mill, before the day’s hiking adventure unfolds. Next, we will hike through magnificent landscapes via well-trodden pathways visiting remote villages where life continues unchanged, much as it has always been. We will walk on beautiful mountain trails, visit historical sights, and experience traditional and wonderful food. In the late afternoon, we will enjoy a restorative yoga and pranayama practice to rejuvenate our walking legs before relishing home-cooked, rustic, simple, vibrant, and wholesome vegetarian meals prepared by the owners of Fuentes de Lucia. There will also be unscheduled free time every day. (We may have a special trip to a beach along the spectacular coastline, schedule permitting).
