The venue is near the capital of the province of the same name and the wider region holds a number of attractions. From the mystical Alpujarras mountains, to the Sierra Nevada and down to the Costa Tropical centred on Salobreña, a visitor to this province can ski in the morning, have lunch in the city, then sit on the beach in the afternoon. Not a bad claim to fame.
"Give him an offering, my lady, for there is no greater tragedy than that of the blind man in Granada." -Anonymous
So goes the famous quote, allegedly said to a woman passing a beggar in the street in Granada. The beauty and truth of the phrase encapsulates everything about this majestic city. The city offers the visitor a dizzying variety of attractions, from it’s fun-filled streets (this is a large student city) to its reputation as a Flamenco hotspot, Granada offers both history and modernity. Opposite the Alhambra is the Albaycín – the old Muslim quarter of the city, and with its steep banks, winding streets and sharp turns, an air of the past still lingers here.
In addition to daily yoga practice, there will be three planned group excursions (included in the retreat price) as well as additional optional excursions (for an extra fee). The included excursions are: Sacramonte Cave Neighborhood and Flamenco Dinner excursion (1/2 day evening trip), Beach and Picnic Day, and the Alhambra Palace half day trip. The Beach and Picnic day is weather dependent and the group may choose to go to Granada center to the Albayzin Arab Neighborhood to walk around and visit traditional tea shops, shopping and hammams as an alternative. All excursions include a meal and transport as well as specific entry fee. Other optional excursions on time off can be arranged by individuals or in the group such as travel to the city center for nightlife, daytime shopping, hiking excursions, etc.
You can relax on the beach, go to the mountains, enjoy sightseeing and practice yoga on this all encompassing yoga retreat in beautiful Granada Spain!
