Casa Santosha, Spain
Jayne Harman and Emma Brown will be collaborating to bring you daily Yoga and meditation practices in this beautiful location, this autumn. A healthy body and a peaceful mind are key to inner contentment and time at Casa Santosha will provide you the room to refresh your mind, body and spirit.
An hour from Malaga, Casa Santosha (simply translated as the ‘House of Contentment’) sits deep in the olive groves of the Andalusian hills. It is the perfect sanctuary in which to unwind, rejuvenate and discover a deeper connection with your body and mind through the ancient science and practice of yoga and meditation.
Your days will start with an energising morning Yoga class on the outdoor patio with the stunning Andalusian countryside as the backdrop.
There will be ample time during the day for relaxation or optional daytime activities. Evenings will include gentle yoga and/or meditation before you fall into bed for a deep, blissful sleep. All food is lovingly prepared on site, providing you with the fresh, delicious vegetarian/vegan meals.
A limited number of eight people ensures individual attention during classes and a relaxed and intimate atmosphere. Whether you're a complete novice curious to experience yoga for the first time or an experienced yogi seeking time and space to deepen your practice, the size of the retreat will allow Jayne to teach all abilities.
So why not join Jayne and Emma in this special place to help you on your own personal path to Santosha (contentment)!
See you soon for four days of nourishing, nurturing and not forgetting…. Yoga!

Can all yoga levels join?
Definitely – our yoga classes and poses will be modified for beginners and the more advanced yogis will still be challenged with each practice. The morning flow classes are designed to challenge whilst aligning breath with movement in a playful, flowing sequence. The evening yoga/meditation classes are very restorative and soothing. The classes combine to offer a perfectly balanced practice.
