A Yoga & Culinary Retreat // Warrior Within

All Level ✺ 15- 21 June 2023 ✺ Casa Erica, Málaga, Spain

Our signature Yoga & Culinary Retreats are perfect for those interested in plant- based cuisine eager to learn more or simply get inspired.

Join us for a week of cultivation. We will be learning how to move from fear to faith.  Cultivating the mind and body of the spiritual warrior, rising above our own limitations, remaining unattached to the outcomes of life circumstances, staying centered and physically, mentally and emotionally.  

Through the week we will explore three pathways; action, devotion and knowledge. You will begin to connect to the strength, stability and power that already lies within you leaving the week standing strong in your true self. As you return to the battlefield we call life you will be empowered to live a life of integrity and truth, embracing your full warrior potential.

This retreat is about tapping into your warrior potential.  Often in life what really holds us back from our own power is our fears.  

Each morning will include a strong vinyasa practice interwoven with yoga mythology, meditations, self-enquiry, and goddess ritual. Each evening you can join a lunar practice which will be either yin or restorative in nature (or a combination of the two). There will also be plenty of down-time to pause, to rest or to enjoy the sights and sounds of the local area.

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
