Outstanding Food! I’ve never had such delicious, fresh, creative meals. It was like a Five Star Restaurant. I didn’t miss meat at all. Shanti, London

Gourmet Vegetarian Food
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 in-house yoga teachers, you will discover that yoga can be a tool not only for improving health and fitness but also for deep rest and mindful relaxation. During the week we give you confidence to build a self-practice that you can take home. Our yoga method can be applied to all styles of yoga because, rather than focusing solely on stretching and shape-making, we teach you to balance your physical stability and strength with mindful tranquility.
Every morning there's a 2-hour yoga asana class and in the evenings a restorative yoga class (1.5 hours). For early risers there's a guided meditation before yoga. The week culminates with a fun partner yoga session on Friday evening and a self-practice session on Saturday morning. Everyone is welcome, whether novice or experienced.
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.
We are delighted to introduce you to our hand-picked team of world-class holistic therapists, available every afternoon to attend to your needs. They can help you to free yourself from whatever might be holding you back; and most importantly of all, the powerful combination of yoga classes and holistic therapy sessions re-connect you with the wonderful person that you really are, rather than who you think you ‘should’ be. When you return to Kaliyoga, you will be eligible for a free holistic relaxation session with the therapist of your choice, subject to availability.
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).
