Amid the fast pace of our everyday lives, we hear a call for deep rest. Just as night follows day and summer fades into fall, our bodies are called into retreat to recover from the depth of life and to bring balance to the rush of experience.
On this retreat, you will ease into a pace of rest and relaxation with gentle flows, easeful days, and a general pace of life that matches exactly what the body needs to escape the cycle of day-to-day stressors. As your nervous system calms, you’ll feel a boost in your immune system and leave feeling a soft glow from within.
Our morning sessions will start with meditation and pranayama to focus our minds. We will take that focus into a gentle flow, followed by yin and restorative poses. In these sessions, there will be little or no vinyasas (moving from high plank to low plank to upward-facing dog), making this retreat very suitable for those with wrist, elbow, or shoulder injuries.
The afternoon sessions will include restorative yoga, yoga nidra (guided meditation while laying down), mantra singing, and conversations about the practical application of yoga philosophy for daily life circumstances.
Fleur van Hille
Fleur has been a student and teacher of yoga since 2009 when her career as a professional dancer transformed into a love for yoga’s physical postures, breathing exercises, mantras, and meditation. Since then, her training has spanned the globe and expanded to include advanced postures, philosophy, yoga nidra, and yoga therapeutics.
As a teacher, Fleur is creative and supportive. Her playlists offer a carefully crafted, steady beat that will carry you through flowing transitions and intentional holds. She offers options for all levels, so everyone feels held and at ease, and if there is one thing that characterizes her classes, workshops, and retreats, it is the feeling of being connected. She brings a warmth and joy to her classes that open the door for her students to experience both playfulness and stillness.
Fleur has been teaching yoga retreats with Yoga Spirit Circle since the very beginning. She has returned again and again because her retreats offer a truly profound experience of yoga. She will both guide you and inspire you to explore yoga as a way of living and an experience—one in which our hearts expand to include all of life as one spiritual whole.

about the place
Casa Erica is where it all begun and where we host retreats since 2014. It is a home to us, which we love to share. Peacefully located on the coast of Andalusia, between Málaga and Nerja. The beach in walking distance.
What we love most about it are the pastel sunsets, the wild beaches and the laid back Andalusian mentality. Also our dog Alpha and cat Hanuman live here. More
