Location: Luxury Health & Fitness Spa Resort, La Nucia, Alicante.
Getting fit and healthy doesn’t just mean spending hours sweating away in a gym or pounding the streets as you run. Our Yoga & Fitness retreat holidays create strength, confidence and body awareness with a programme of ‘fun-but-good-for-you’ activities enjoyed at our health & fitness resort but also out in the stunning Spanish scenery as there’s nothing better than the ‘feel good’ factor from being in the great outdoors.
This retreat includes everything you could possible want to boost your fitness. You have daily sessions of authentic yoga with experienced teachers that’ll open & release tension, energizing functional fitness sessions with our hand picked personal trainer, a guided hike in nature to one of our favourite secret spots, a bike ride in the countryside and Pilates sessions for alignment & strength. And, when you’re ready to relax, you can head to the onsite lagoon pool, ease your muscles in the thermal Spa, book therapies, retreat to your spacious suite for a snooze or use the onsite gym for an extra workout.
You don’t have to be super fit to join us – our instructors are here to inspire you to find your boundaries .. not push you beyond them. And everything is optional, just pick & chose what you want to do.
“I have had a fantastic time! Loved every session & thought your organisation was faultless.”

“I have enjoyed every minute. I feel so refreshed now and ready to rejoin my life.”

The Yoga & Pilates Sessions
The daily yoga sessions combine the deep stretches of Hatha with the warming flow of Vinyasa plus some restorative Yin Yoga postures. Yoga sessions will focus on synchronising your breath with simple sequences that’ll warm & open the body, lengthen muscles and lubricate your joints to ensure your body feels spacious and moves freely.
The Pilates sessions are mat based and focus on strengthening & toning the major muscle groups with proficient Pilates movements and a variety of Pilates equipment. During your stay there’ll also be a Meditation workshop where there’ll be a chance to sample various mind calming meditation techniques.
Yoga & Pilates sessions are suitable for keen beginners, those with a lapsed practice & intermediates. Our teaching style is precise but relaxed. There’s no pressure to create ‘perfect’ postures. What’s more important is that you pay attention to how the postures feel in your body. Likewise there’s no room for ego as it’s not what we’re about. It doesn’t matter what other people are doing around you, just work with what you have. Be patient, keep practicing and your body will open up & let you back in.

Fitness Training Sessions
We believe fitness should be fun & so we’ve created a programme that includes a variety of activities to boost your cardio & respiratory function, tone & sculpt your muscles, improve your flexibility and soothe your nervous system.
As our resort has such excellent facilities, the majority of activities take place on site but we will also get you out into the beautiful natural countryside nearby for an (easy to moderate) guided bike ride and a mountain hike.
Please remember, you don’t have to be super fit to join these retreats, our trainers & instructors are here to inspire you to find your boundaries .. not push you beyond them. You’ll always be encouraged to work at a level and pace that suits your strength & stamina. And, if there’s a morning where you fancy a lie in or an afternoon where you prefer to stay by the pool and skip class – that’s fine, we want you to do as much or as little as you like!
“You have made me feel re-energised, positive & thankful. I have enjoyed every aspect of my holiday & feel the balance of activities vs. relaxation time was spot on.”
Food is key to feeling great & so we take feeding your body seriously. Each day includes 3 meals freshly prepared using local & seasonal produce bursting in optimum nutrition. We believe healthy food should be full of amazing flavours and textures but also nutritionally balanced to ensure you receive adequate nourishment whilst you’re being active … yoga, swimming, hiking, biking, fitness classes. Our dishes are predominately vegetarian, with a little local fish for those that would like it. Special diets can be catered for with advance notice too.
Greet the day quietly as you wake up with a cup of herbal tea & fresh fruits before opening your body & senses to the day in a Yoga or Pilates session. Now, feeling energised & vibrant, it’s time for a healthy nutritionally balanced breakfast before we head off for the day’s outdoor activity to make the most of the gorgeous weather & scenery here in Spain. Activities are always optional & include a guided hike in the stunning mountains nearby, a Fitness Training session in the resort grounds or a guided bike ride. After lunch afternoons are free to enjoy the relaxation & fitness facilities at the resort where you could laze by the pool, book a pampertastic therapy, visit the onsite thermal Spa with jacuzzi, steam & hydro massage pool, book a private training session or make use of the two onsite gyms. Late afternoon we regroup for wind down yoga or Pilates session before supper & bed.
All activities are optional, so if you want to lie in one morning & skip a class or stay by the pool and miss the afternoon session – no problem, just do what you wish. Our aim is that you leave us feeling fitter, healthier, relaxed and de-stressed.
