About The Area
There are two guided hikes in the beautiful Alpujarra hills to waterfalls, gorges, white stone villages & shaded valleys. On each hike we’ll be walking for 2-3 hours on undulating terrain ranging from reasonably challenging gradients to moderately easy up and downhill.
This region is one of the finest walking areas in Europe and has been certified by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve, yet you don’t have to be an athlete and there are some paved sections as well. In the evening when you return there is a restorative yoga session, followed by supper.
The other days include daily yoga sessions (2 hours in the morning and 1.5 hours in the evening), with plenty of time for treatments, rest, and relaxation in between. Please note: the hikes are not suitable if you have high blood pressure, reduced mobility, or are recovering from recent surgery.
Gourmet Vegetarian Cuisine
The food at Kaliyoga will delight and amaze you. Our gourmet vegetarian cuisine is light, gluten free, vegan/coeliac friendly and absolutely delicious. And with three copious meals per day, you will never go hungry. Our super talented nutritionists are happy to suggest alternative ingredients if you have an intolerance to foods that could lead to an allergic reaction.
Yoga and Meditation
Under the expert guidance of our experienced in-house teachers, you’ll learn a method for self-practice that will continue to serve you at home and at your local yoga studio. We do not grade you in terms of your ability, everyone is welcome, whether novice or experienced. Mornings: yoga (2 hrs) preceded by a guided meditation for earlybirds. Evenings: restorative yoga 1.5 hours. On Friday evening there’s a fun partner yoga session and a self-practice session on Saturday morning.
Time for Self-Care
You are welcome to use the outdoor facilities at any time : infra-red sauna, solar-heated swimming pool (temperature depends on the sun!) Or read in a hammock, catch up on some guilt-free sleep, or go for a walk in the beautiful Alpujarra mountains (we have walking maps, or a walking guide can be arranged) although there are two days of guided walking included on this retreat. If you want to sleep in and miss a yoga class, that’s fine too.
Our hand-picked team of holistic therapists are available every afternoon to attend to your needs. They can help to free you from whatever might be holding you back.
Things to See and Do
Kaliyoga is located 10 minutes from the market town of Orgiva where you will find whole food & hippy shops, cafes and a bustling outdoor market on Thursday mornings. There is also horse riding, great mountain walks, Moorish whitewash villages, beautiful beaches (35 mins drive) and paragliding for the adventurous. We are 50 minutes from the glittering Moorish city of Granada with its Alhambra Palace and Gypsy Flamenco quarter.
Evenings can be quite social, though if you prefer to be quiet, that’s ok too. There is a warm sitting room with a cosy snug to curl up in and relax with a good book; or why not go for an evening stroll in the countryside, or stroll into town (about 20 mins on foot).
Kaliyoga is located in southern Andalucia between the Alpujarra hill towns of Lanjarrón and Orgiva, surrounded by panoramic views of the Sierrra Nevada mountains. We are approximately 1.5 hrs by car from Malaga airport.
