Yoga & Ayurvedic
Cooking Retreat

23-29 October 2022, Málaga Spain

If you want to unwind, feel deeply into your body and find out how to nourish your whole self with amazing vegan cuisine, while having lots of fun, this retreat is for you. 
 
In the quiet of each morning, we begin our yoga practice in stillness, taking time to anchor our awareness in the present moment through a guided breathing exercise, a meditation or visualisation. Then, drawing on the energy of the rising sun and the freshness of a brand-new day, Fleur leads you through a vinyasa flow that is both gentle and energizing.

During the dip in energy that tends to follow lunchtime, the sessions slow down, allowing for a deeper exploration of the techniques and practices encountered earlier in the day. There’s also plenty of time for sinking into a profound state of relaxation with restorative or yin yoga, or even yoga nidra (yogic sleep) – sometimes accompanied by mantras, music, or myths. 

Daily routines are hectic, we are constantly on the run or on our phones that’s why we believe you need the right fuel: nutritious, yummy, and healthy food.  Simone & Adi owners of several Karma Food delis in Vienna, bring food to life and create a space for their community. 

Simone & Adi love to share their passion for cooking and great ingredients with you. That’s why they will show you their favorite kitchen hacks and surprise you with their Ayurveda wisdom. Eat good and good will come to you. Are you ready to get inspired?

Whether you have been practicing yoga (and cooking) for many years or you are new to it; you are welcome!

Fleur van Hille


People often describe me as a warm and sunny person with an intuitive approach to teaching yoga. I like hearing this description because it shows that I’ve made a real connection with my students. And if there’s one thing about yoga that I love the most and which characterizes my classes, workshops and retreats, it’s the feeling of being connected.

A retreat offers us the possibility of a truly profound experience of yoga. Surrounded by nature and among like-minded people from every corner of the world, a unique journey unfolds. Conversations open up, emotions are untapped, and discoveries are made…

Simone & Adi – Karma Food

Our philosophy: Eat well, feel well

Simone loves to travel and dine, literally bringing people together with good food and natural wine. She enjoys having fun in the kitchen and strolling through local farmer’s markets. She loves to develop new recipes, to ferment, to throw huge dinner parties for family and friends but also likes to take some slow moments in between: a nice cup of Karma coffee in the morning (her very own blend, which she developed and roasted together with her friends from Jonas Reindl Coffee Roasters) or a long stroll through the woods with her dog Charlie.

Adi’s motto is: Everybody can cook. And he is the best proof with his own journey: from a self-taught cook to a trained Ayurvedic chef. Adi grew up in India (he will tell you lots of stories about it), where literally at all times of the day a curry or dal was simmering on the stove. He loves to share his family recipes with the world and passes on his random facts/ life advice.

about the place

Surrounded by mountains and sea, Casa Erica is very peacefully located on the coast of Andalusia, between Málaga and Nerja. It’s only a 600m walk to the beach. There are no disturbing neighbors or street noise. While being warmed by the sun you will enjoy the view over the countryside and the ocean. Between the yoga classes you can chill at the pool, enjoy a relaxing massage or discover the surroundings. 

There is a lot to discover around Casa Erica. Once a week you can join a hike through cliffs, that ends at a hidden beach. At the weekly market you can buy souvenirs and culinary delights. 

The Costa del Sol has a micro climate because it is sheltered from the northern winds by the Sierra Nevada. The sub-tropical vegetation brings us mediterranean and tropical fruits such as avocados, guavas, cherimoyas, figs or passion fruit, depending on the time of the year – enriching our retreat menu. Discover the location.
