Life is fast and there often is no time to just sit with ourselves and to do what is most important: To heal, tune in and be in balance.
In traditional indian medicine and spiritual theory the channels through which the energy such as prana is flowing through our bodies is called Nāḍī (Sanskrit: नाडी, lit. ‚tube, pipe, nerve, blood vessel, pulse‘). Besides a strong asana praxis we will take time to understand how energy is moving through our bodies. We want to explore where the energy can flow freely and where channels are blocked.
With the healing power of Nāda (Sanskrit: नाडी, lit. ’sound, vibration, ton‘), we will move our body through Asanas and guided meditations to turn our perception inwards and to listen to the pure sound of our inner spirit.
When you’re not on your yoga mat, you are invited to join the series of culinary workshops that are unique to this retreat. There will be plenty of down-time to go for a stroll, sunbathe, swim in the sea and read.

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. 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.
