May in Bujaruelo on Yoga Meditation and Wellness Retreat

A WEEK LONG EXCLUSIVE RETREAT WITH SPECTACULAR SCENERY, GENTLE WALKS, LAUGHTER AND GREAT VEGETERIAN FOOD.

Introduction

Come and stay with us on our Exclusive Yoga Meditation and Wellness Retreat and enjoy a week with spectacular scenery, gentle walks, laughter and great vegetarian food. We are  Simon and Lucy, your hosts, and we live in a tiny hamlet, in a quiet valley in the central Spanish Pyrenees, within the Pyrenees Geopark. Here we are surrounded by nature, in the morning you wake up to inspirational mountain views - all from your own private room, with luxury ensuite bathroom - and at night you sleep under skies bursting with stars, as we have no light pollution.

We have hand-picked a multidisciplinary team for this week-long Exclusive Yoga Meditation and Wellness Retreat including Julia Ventham as our meditation facilitator and Viniyoga teacher, and Amanda Spring as our dietary specialist.
Julia is also there for you on an individual basis, whatever your needs and she has written a number of posts on our blog which you can read here.

Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. On this retreat week, we help you achieve this through Yoga, meditation and diet. Our small group size (maximum 5) means this is an exclusive retreat.

Yoga Meditation and Wellness Retreat Itinerary

The itinerary below gives an idea of what we will be doing during a typical week on our Yoga Meditation and Wellness Retreat. This year we have included an overnight stay at a mountain lake, with camping gear carried by mules

Our Retreat is a mix of practical workshops and excursions. Every morning we have a pre-breakfast yoga session, either  Viniyoga,  Hatha or Kundalini. The Viniyoga sessions are followed by a short meditation.

We also practice meditation on our excursions. The sessions are approx 15 minute slots, led by Julia, and chosen at an appropriate place when we are out walking.

Optional Extras

We have two optional extras that are available in an evening during the week.

• A one to one with nutritionist Amanda Spring . It is most important that guests complete in advance of the retreat 5 days of completed food diaries. €45/approx 1 hour (min 2 people needed)

• Full body massage: Local masseuse Cristina will come to the house and give a full body massage for €45/approx 1 hour (min 2 people needed).

The decision of exactly where we go on a particular day will be decided at the time, and it will depend on the weather. See our Pyrenees Weather Forecast for a better idea of what to expect and what to pack (we do send a recommended kit list when you book).

We carefully prepare healthy vegetarian meals and picnic lunches, all using our own organic produce or locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. Refreshments and infusions are available all day long at no extra charge.
We recommend an alcohol free week but this an individual choice. For those who enjoy a glass of wine we serve wine from our local region, Somontano.
