Our Spanish Yoga Retreat (established in 2004) is set in the heart of a secluded green valley and surrounded by the dramatic beauty of the Andalucian Mountains, we’re just 40 minutes away from Malaga airport, but a world away from the stresses of urban existence. When we first discovered the natural beauty of this valley, we were inspired by a sense of serenity and tranquillity, so relaxing and peaceful compared to what were very busy city lives. Since then, we’ve dedicated ourselves to replicating that rejuvenating experience for others, promoting healing, inspiration, meditation, exploration (inward and outward) but, most of all, a profound and liberating sense of fun.
Valle de Vida’s Yoga and wellness retreat is designed to have minimal impact on our 18 acres of unspoilt land, in harmony with the natural beauty of Spain’s Pizarra Mountains. Hidden away in a valley, reached only by a 4km track that winds through the orange and lemon groves, we are surrounded by breathtaking views, vibrant flora and fauna, caves, mountain streams, springs and even a waterfall.
As well as the incredible Spanish scenery & yoga, guests can also benefit from treatments from one of our hand picked therapists, including our healer Robi Persad, one of London’s leading Osteopaths and owner of a hugely popular and well respected London practice, running for 25 years.
Meet the founders of our idyllic Spanish yoga holiday retreat
Robi Persad is one of London’s leading Osteopaths, with over 20 years of experience.
Robi is skilled in a range of treatment disciplines including acupuncture and cupping, as well as many types of massage.
His partner, Keri Williams, now runs the yoga retreat in Spain, but has a former life as a make-up artist, jet-setting round the world to glamorous locations, the best of which have inspired the design of Valle de Vida. They have two sons, Arun and Ajay, and a collection of very friendly cats and dogs.
“We discovered our yoga holiday setting ‘Valle de Vida’, whilst exploring in a VW camper on a family holiday to Spain in 2003.
Selling our London home and moving to Spain to create a retreat at Valle de Vida – and a better quality of life for our two boys – was a huge gamble. Thankfully, our guests have loved it as much as we did, keeping us very busy by returning year after year. We also have a great team of people who work with us here to make your yoga holiday in Spain just perfect."
