Going on a Kaliyoga retreat was the best decision I ever made

– Sarah Brodie

I have been twice to Kaliyoga, first by myself and then with my Mum. Kaliyoga is a hidden gem, so peaceful, relaxing and nurturing. The food and staff are absolutely fabulous. And both times I came away feeling rejuvenated, strong and relaxed; not to mention the amazing company of my fellow guests. I cant wait to go again.

– Marsaili Mainz

I adore this place – a totally gorgeous experience with incredible staff, beautiful views, insanely delicious food, great teachers, talented therapist and fabulous hosts! Definitely recommend Kaliyoga for a mini-break with meaning, a high-class hen-do, wedding or simply to get away and restore yourself!

– Natalie F

The most restorative holiday I’ve had in ages. Spectacular location, delicious food, friendly staff, expert yoga – highly recommended!

– Angus B

Had the most incredible stay at Kaliyoga Spain not sure where to start as everything was perfect. The setting is absolutely beautiful, the yoga sessions were incredibly relaxing, the food was delicious and the company so enriching. I’d urge anyone to go – I came back totally refreshed and reset.

– Nikki E

Just back from an amazing week at Kaliyoga – what a special place myself and my husband loved it. Great people, yoga and food. Thank you for everything. We came back totally recharged!!

– Annette

My week in Kaliyoga was definitely even better than I had hoped. Beautiful environment, comfortable and homely setting, delicious food and of course fabulous yoga teaching in the wonderful studio. We also had access to some lovely local therapists and enjoyed hiking in the mountains around us. It was such a great reset and I will definitely be going back!

– Jo Hux

I can genuinely say that Kaliyoga is on a par with the best retreats in the world

– Jennie Trent Hughes

I booked this retreat with ‘relaxation’ in mind. I leave with a fantastic set of tools to get back to myself, enjoy the present moment, learn to be fed by nature, people and most of all to enjoy the ride!

– Sabine 

Even if you’ve done lots of yoga classes before, a week at Kaliyoga will put you back on the right track. And if you’ve done none, you’ll get inspired to do plenty more.

– Anna Selby

I cannot recommend Kaliyoga highly enough and am already looking forward to my next visit to this valley of paradise.

– Justin, UK

I’d give Kaliyoga 5000 stars if possible. Lovely place, great people, super chilled and loving vibe, very personal and real.

– Martje, Holland

If you want somewhere to catch your breath and practice soulful yoga, Kaliyoga is the place to go!

– Mathew

What a fantastic, inspirational and life-changing week. I loved every minute of it and I am so thankful to the whole team of talented, friendly and dedicated people. I will definitely be back!

 – Tara

Kaliyoga was so much more than I expected. Thank you for having created a safe and spiritual place for people to heal.

– Paris

The yoga has been a revelation to me and I will continue to practice on my return home.

– Liz

This week has transformed my life. I feel so lucky to have been welcomed into such a warm and caring environment where I felt so much love and kindness from everyone here.

Chloë

Thank you again for all your care and understanding,
nothing could have been gentler or more caring,
I feel very lucky to have been at Kaliyoga.

Jane

I’ve been to many retreats, but I have never experienced such incredibly talented therapists – the treatments at Kaliyoga are all life changing. Out of this world!

Saskia, Bath (UK)

I left Kaliyoga on Saturday lunchtime a fresher, invigorated and re-energised version of my former self who was full of love and compassion for the five wonderful souls I had the pleasure of spending the week with. I’m sure the feeling will be hard to forget, but I am definitely ready to focus on life again, enjoy everything it has to offer, embrace everything it throws my way and love myself unconditionally.

Leila Jane Wright

A perfect balance of hippy and cool. Kaliyoga isn’t the competitive power yoga that is often found in Britain, The morning flow class is challenging but gentle. The afternoon session combines restorative yoga and alignment workshops, culminating in a partner class on the last day which has us collapsed on the floor laughing.

– The Metro

At Kaliyoga’s base in the Alpujarra hills you can pick from a variety of activities to mix with your yoga and meditation, including hill walking and a range of life-changing holistic treatments.

– The Guardian – Best Yoga retreats 2017

I haven’t felt as energised or as healthy in ages. Also, you are incredibly lucky to have such great staff. Kaliyoga is a very special retreat and I take my hat off to you for getting it set up. Well done!

Now I’m back in Berlin and wanted to let you know that it was a fabulous week in Spain, I really enjoyed it A LOT!
The atmosphere and everyone working at Kaliyoga was so nice and relaxed and I learned loads about yoga and raw food. It would be great to come back some time!

Verena, Berlin

This was the best kind of vacation I could wish for. It was like one big family. Please do not ever change that. Really loved that the people working there joined us for dinner and that we all helped each other. Made me feel more welcome and more at home.

C. Hulvi Larsen, Hellerup – Denmark

I have learned a lot during the retreat and I am very glad I had this wonderful experience.

C. Siebbeles, Amsterdam – Netherlands

So, what do you call a place that has a sauna, a pool, a hot tub under the stars, a vast array of treatments and a philosophy that embraces nutrition, health, exercise and spirituality? That must be a real spa, right? Wrong. This is Kaliyoga and this is a retreat. And that’s a whole different mind set.

– The Arbuturian

 

A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. It has been life changing for me. Learnt so much. Felt so supported. Pace was perfect. Fears were overcome.

Sandra Henke

FANTASTIC yoga! AMAZING management and hosting.
LOVELY staff! I absolutely love this venue, the location and surrounding countryside couldn’t be more blissful.

– Pat McNulty / Cosmopolitan Magazine

Excellent yoga, accessible, satisfying, challenging but not threatening.
Reinvigorated my interest in yoga, a renewed sense that life is beautiful. Food too divine!!

Christine Colton

If I had only one word to describe Kaliyoga I’d say ‘sociable’. Swiftly followed by ‘laughter’ and ‘warmth’. I don’t think I have ever talked or laughed so much as during my week with a bunch of people who started off as complete strangers.

– Brutally Frank Website

 

There is something about Kaliyoga that creates the most wonderful atmosphere.
What a shame you can\’t bottle it and sell it worldwide!

J. Bates, Surrey, UK

Woweee, your retreat is simply gorgeous!! Absolutely loved it!!
Thanks for founding Kaliyoga. One week has had a very big impact in my life.

A. Montoya – Switzerland

We both had a really fantastic time, returned home fully recharged and energised. Found the educational info on diet, nutrition and lifestyle particularly useful. Sure you will see us again in the future!

Bob & Lou, London – UK

I absolutely loved my stay at Kaliyoga. The combination of fantastic yoga, food, treatments and the wonderful kind energy of the place was something so unique and special. I felt like I floated back to London!

Sarah F

 

I had such a beautiful time at Kaliyoga. It’s such a special special place.
I moved forward in so many ways and I felt so much happiness and love.
It really can’t be given full justice in words alone.

Anita

The staff are so open and genuine, they made me feel very welcome. Kaliyoga far exceeded my expectations, I will be back. My soul was nourished, I now feel my spiritual journey has begun.

Donna

I loved my time at Kaliyoga and wish I was still there.
The people, food, yoga, treatments and location were all top notch and fabulous.
I laughed, learned loads and came home feeling like a new woman.

Clare, London

 

Best Holistic Retreat for beginners. At Kaliyoga’s base in the Alpujarras you can pick from a variety of activities to mix with your yoga, including hill walking, raw food cleansing and juice fasting with nutrition lectures, colonic cleanses and guided meditation. Chill by the pool, have a treatment, use the infra-red sauna and take two yoga classes a day. Resident teachers encouraging guests to experience yoga as a moving meditation. Alcohol-free meals are veggie and vegan.

– Caroline Sylger Jones (Guardian)

 

Men know how to rush, how to compete, how to strategise, how to panic, how to want, but few of us know how to just pause and be, even for one breath. There is something so hard about taking a moment to stop thinking and, rather, to notice what I am experiencing right now, that I needed two whole weeks of structured, cloistered care in order to glimpse it.

– Sunday Telegraph

 

This retreat was also a wonderful opportunity to meet like-minded people and form ties with them. The contrast between our tense drawn faces and stiff bodies when we arrived and the sparkling expressions when we left was quite revealing of the release and joy experienced during the initiation.

I have only one thought when I think of this retreat: I want to go back as soon as possible and experience every step of this mesmerizing physical and mental transformation again.

I know the minute I stop feeling this glow, I’ll be booking my second trip…

– Essential Travel

For many people, yoga has become an integral part of their lifestyle. So much so that it carries over into holiday planning.

– Shaw Connect

One of the Best Yoga Holidays in Spain.

– Red Online

Feel more energized with two daily yoga classes and tantalize your taste buds with a range of healthy snack ideas, guilt-free desserts, and raw chocolate.

– Miss Eco Glam

When searching for summer holiday ideas I stumbled upon the Kaliyoga Retreat in Southern Spain where you can enjoy a highly nourishing and invigorating six-day Yoga Retreat in a spectacular rural setting. Focus on yoga and a diet of high-vibration living foods including raw and steamed cuisine as well as superfoods to enhance holistic health, energy, and weight control.

– Style Cartel

Being a fairly active lady who is used to clocking hours in the gym and pounding the pavement, I initially approached yoga with some caution. It looked wonderful, but would I be bored? Would I feel any tangible benefits? I imagine this is the trepidation of many thinking about giving the downward dog a chance, but I was feeling the effects of spending many hours a week hunched over my desk and knew that a week of turning off my work emails and escaping the rat race would do me no harm. But my week in the Andalusian mountains had more of an effect on me, my lifestyle and my outlook on my health than I could possibly have prepared for.

Juice like the stars on a Kaliyoga retreat…

Hello Magazine

 

What do you call a place that has a sauna, a pool under the stars, a vast array of treatments and a philosophy that embraces nutrition, health, exercise, and spirituality? That must be a spa, right? Wrong. This is Kaliyoga and this is a retreat. And that’s a whole different mindset.

The Arbuturian

The Guardian placed Kaliyoga in their list of top 10 inspirational and affordable yoga retreats that feature leading instructors.

– The Guardian

I just want to thank everyone so much. The love, care and nurturing we all received even before we arrived and can feel even though we have left is extraordinary. The gifted and dedicated therapists are extraordinary and would put most luxury spa hotels around the world to shame. The place and the people at Kaliyoga have a very special energy and are nothing short of magical.

– Yoga magazine

Are you keen to start the new year with positive intentions and explore your yoga practice with world-class teachers? Yoga retreats are great ways to get a new perspective on your life, delve deep into yoga and philosophy, eat healthy and delicious food, and meet a group of like-minded folks. Being able to escape your daily life for a short break and take a step back is an invaluable way to transform your life – and your yoga practice.

– SpaFinder

In London you’d never catch me fasting (too greedy), giving up caffeine (too addicted) or consulting a healer (too cynical). Yet after a week at the Kaliyoga retreat in southern Spain, I had done all three, along with many more things I’d never have dreamt of. Chakra meditation? A day of total silence? Flamenco dancing? I loved them all.

– Daily Telegraph

Go on, stretch yourself. Kaliyoga is all about total relaxation, but a week-long course can yield unexpected rewards, as Francesca Syz discovered at a yoga retreat deep in the Spanish countryside.
