  • Description

    Description

    We are a Yoga and Meditation retreat center founded in 2016. We teach meditation and Hatha Yoga daily during the retreats. Outside of the retreats, we usually work in the garden and renovate the place.

    We are situated in a beautiful secluded area in the middle of olive and almond trees 35min away from Granada city by car. The nearest village is Moraleda de Zafayona and is approx 1 hour away by foot.

    Benefiting others is the main motivation of our project.

    We are looking for motivated and hard working people who share the same aim of helping others without waiting for anything in return.

    Minimum stay is at least a week but at least 2 or 3 weeks preferred.

    Our gardens were designed based on permaculture so you can get involved as well in the process if you want to.

    To fully enjoy the place and cultivate a strong compassionate mind, It is recommended to a least take part in the 2 x daily 1hr meditation classes. (7AM and 4.30PM)

    A car is needed to get to our place or pick up possible from Moraleda de Zafayona.

    We unfortunately cannot accept our pet friends.
