Hip and Healthy Summer Yoga Retreat in Altea, Alicante Spain

“This Summer I have ventured to the Mediterranean sea to vacation, meet the locals and relax.  One of my stops on the Mediterranean road was Alicante, Spain where I joined Yoga Breaks in Spainfor a Hip & Healthy Summer Yoga Retreat in the coastal town of Altea, Alicante.  My amazing yoga instructor Nicole helped me start each day with some sun salutations and sent me home with a few new moves.”

This Summer Yoga Retreat, based an hour north of Alicante, is suited to beginners, intermediates & advanced practitioners alike.  Each day started early with a lovely long yoga session to help you feel stretched and invigorated for the remainder of the day.  Starting each morning Hip & Healthy definitely helps you make the right choices for the rest of the day!

“My Summer Yoga Retreat took place at a lovely 4-star country house hotel located very close to the coastline and owned by the same local Spanish family who’s ancestors ran it as an Olive Farm before it was converted and opened as a 20 room hotel some 8 years ago.  The lovely owners, Vincenta & her husband, are at the hotel everyday looking after guests.  Their staff speak English, French and of course Spanish to help you with your needs at their spacious hotel hideaway.”

“Nicole and her team at Yoga Breaks in Spain have been going 10 years strong & they still ‘LOVE’ what they do.  Their yoga inspired well-being retreats run throughout the year and are featured in the TOP 10 YOGA RETREATS IN THE WORLD.  The small team stay strong to their true core principles , teaching yoga with an awesome backdrop and new moves to share with clients.  It is a small operation, so you feel welcome the minute you arrive and at the end of your Retreat you’ve made a new set of like-minded friends.  After spending the week with your yoga mates, breakfast just isn’t the same without them.

“This particular Summer Yoga Retreat is just one of the many year round yoga retreats offered by Yoga Breaks in Spain.   With it’s very relaxed, laid back programme,  their Summer Retreat gives you the possibility of literally, going with your flow.  Awakening from your slumbers each day with some fresh fruits and a cup of cleansing lemon & ginger ‘tea’ before heading off at 8.30am for a lovely long yoga class.  After class, a delicious Hip and Healthy breakfast is served alfresco with your new yogi friends whilst you decide how to spend the rest of your day.   On offer they have a range of optional activities you can join if you wanted.  Choose from; a guided horse trek in the mountains, guided bike ride exploring local villages, a fun Spanish cookery workshop & lunch with the hotel Chef plus lots of lovely pampering therapies too.  Of course, you could just relax by the pool with a book you’ve been meaning to read all year or explore the nearby town of Altea – considered to be one of the prettiest in this area of Spain.

This Summer Yoga Retreat  get’s 5 Likes from Style Cartel.  Here’s to staying Hip & Healthy on vacation!  I need to go back to and stay longer!  I sat with Nicole the instructor after class one morning whilst we enjoyed breakfast alfresco.  We both agreed you have to do what you love to be happy and this definitely comes across in her classes.   More photos here on Intagram.
