” We genuinely both had a wonderful time, and consider you to be a truly exceptional yoga teacher in every respect. Your planning, your delivery, the way you include everyone in a class no matter what their level. You are a very very special yoga guru!”
Join myself (SonoYoga) and my chef husband, Richard (Bongo) in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains at the exclusive mountain retreat, Escolta Alta.
For our June Retreat, we will be joined by the lovely Rebeca Montero offering Yoga and Massage and for the September Retreat, the gorgeous Angie Lake (Angel Yoga) co-teaching with me
For the perfect combo of yoga, hiking, trail running, complementary therapies and healthy food, look no further!
My classes are generally a mix of yoga styles dependent on the students. They involve building strength, flexibility, stretching overused muscles and releasing tightened tissue.
Angie teaches a variety of styles including Vinyasa, Power and Hatha. Her teaching style is warm and fun, always trying to make her students feel at ease.
Richard can adapt menus and dishes to cater for most types of diets and requests and always tries to source food from local suppliers where possible and his menus are seasonal and fresh.
Rebeca trains, helps and encourages the efficient use of your body for daily life. Helping you with your body through manual treatment and through personal training techniques such as yoga and functional movement.
” We really enjoyed the whole retreat experience and would readily book another one with you both”.

10am | Breakfast.
1pm | Light, buffet-style lunch.

The rest of the day is yours to enjoy the beautiful surroundings either relaxing by the pool or exploring the local village and countryside.
We will organise a day trip mid week on the Wednesday which will be a guided walk with local Mountain Guides, Spanish Highs. This is included in the price and can be adapted to abilities. If you would like more walks, this can be arranged at extra cost.
There will be no evening meal or yoga on the last night as we will plan to venture into town to enjoy the various bars and restaurants in Lanjaron. And no lunch on the day of the guided walk, but we will have the chance to stop in the picturesque mountain villages for refreshments and tapas. These meals/drinks are not included in the retreat price, so will be at an additional cost. Please let us know in advance of any food allergies/intolerances. No alcohol will be served, but you are welcome to drink your own.

As well as the guided walk midweek. Flights and transfers are bookable separately (we can help you find transfers if you need or give car hire advice). We will be running a couple of open retreats per year, but we can also be booked separately if you have a group interested. The property can accommodate up to 12 guests in 6 bedrooms, all of which are ensuite. There is a mix of twin and double rooms and the retreat price will be based on 2 people sharing a room. If you would like a private room, this can be arranged at a supplement. All details can be found on the website; http://www.escolta-alta.com

If you are interested, please get in touch soon as this year’s June retreat at Almond Hill House sold out within the first month!
If you are looking for the more active holiday, we have teamed up with our friends, Spanish Highs who run a hiking business based in Lanjaron.
We can also offer a Trail Running Package through Trail Running Guide, Matt Dowse – www.trailrunningspain.com
And to top off your adventure holiday, we can now also offer both mountain and road biking to add to your package through Cycle Sierra Nevada. They offer bike hire and guided routes to suit all levels and abilities. Although, from personal experience, the mountains are big and climbs steep, so a certain level of fitness is required.
These activities will be at an extra cost and are entirely optional. If you would like this added to the retreat package, please let us know.
