Magical Yoga Escape with Jeanne Heileman
Tarifa, Southern Spain.​

When we think about breathing, most of us think of simply inhaling and exhaling.  According to the traditional yogic perspective however, there are actually five specific channels for breathing.  These breathing pathways can have either a positive or negative effect on a pose, on the function of our body and how our mind operates. 

Join Jeanne Heileman on a journey through the Five Pranas while we bask in a glorious region of Spain that is full of Prana.  Each day will be devoted to one of the Vayus through asana, Pranayama and meditation practices.  Morning yoga sessions will offer stronger practices with insights to continue walking practices throughout the day. Afternoon practices will weave in more Pranayama and Meditation to feel the subtle effects of each direction.  On our last day we will weave all five Pranas together, the ultimate experience of respiration and Pranayama practice.

We will stay in an exclusive private villa, with unique views to the ocean and the north coast of Africa. We will have the privilege to enjoy the creations of a vegetarian experienced chef, that will cook healthy organic and tasty food only for us during the complete retreat.

There will be time to go on excursions prepared by locals, to discover the most special natural beaches, beautiful trekkings in the Alcornocales Natural Park and the traditional village of Tarifa, without having to plan, prepare, think how to reach each spot or pay any extra.

You will leave knowing how to get more out of each breath, enriching both your yoga practice and your life, and feeling restore by the beauty and silence of the South Spain nature.

Students who attend all of the classes and any fun assignments will be eligible to receive 25 hours of Continuing Education credits through Yoga Alliance from Tantra Flow Yoga™.

THE PLACE

We will stay in a majestic large villa at 8km from bohemian Tarifa and its wonderful beaches, in the province of Cádiz, Southern Spain.

A 700m2 built house, set in the middle of stunning grounds in a plot of 7,500m2, not overlooked by anyone. A secluded paradise that will become your house for a week.

Located at the starting point of the Costa de La Luz (the coast of Light), the property itself looks directly down a valley, to the nearby ocean and the north-african coast, which is only 14km away. It has indeed the most amazing views in the area. You will feel like you can almost touch Africa in front of you!

The area is surrounded by Los Alcornacales National Park, a preserved and unique natural space, which makes it a beautiful, unspoilt and tranquil place.

The villa was refurbished, including  a total renovation of all the bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen, in 2019, preserving the Spanish traditional arquitecture and some of the wooden antique furnitures.

It has a fully equipped indoor yoga room,  a salty swimming – pool, an infrared sauna, large gardens, indoor and outdoor dinning rooms and many beautiful outdoor spaces for chill, relax and meditate.

You will feel at home, with a very familiar athmosphere and the perfect balance of privacy, relaxation, silence and beauty.

The food is first class, delicious, organic, local and seasonal, cooked by specialized chefs in vegetarian and vegan cuisine, especially hired for the this retreat. 

We will explore the beautiful nature in the area. There are excellent walking routes, and many beaches to choose from, starting at the doorstep of Tarifa and going all the way up to Cádiz. Local favorites are Punta Paloma and Bolonia. 

All the excursions and transports are organized for us with care and included in the price of the retreat.

How to get there?

The closest internationl airport is Málaga (AGP), 1 hour, 30 min from the villa. There is direct and affordable flight options to Málaga from most European main cities.
