Yoga with Leah
Whilst new styles of yoga come and go, Kaliyoga advocates a profound yoga method that is fundamental to all yoga styles. It is also effective for beginners and experienced practitioners to learn and practice in the same class. With Leah's expert step-by-step guidance you will experience yoga not merely as stretch exercise, but as profound meditation in motion.
There's a yoga session every morning (2 hrs) and evening (1.5 hrs). A guided meditation for early risers is available on three mornings 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. In your free time you're welcome to sunbathe by the pool, read in a hammock, catch up on some guilt-free sleep, go for a walk in the beautiful Alpujarra mountains (walking guides can be arranged) or indulge in a session with one of our world-class holistic therapists who will inspire you to free yourself from the things that might be holding you back in your life. And most importantly of all, you will begin to feel good about yourself, just as you are, without the would have, could have, should have.
Healthy food with gourmet taste - Farm to table
The food at Kaliyoga will delight and amaze you. Our deliciously gourmet vegetarian cuisine is light, gluten-free and vegan/coeliac friendly. And with three copious meals per day, served mostly al fresco, 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.
Our world-class holistic therapists are available every afternoon. They can help you to free yourself from whatever might be holding you back; the combination of yoga classes and holistic therapy sessions has the power to restore balance and initiate powerful changes that have a bearing on how well you choose to live.
Half Day Wednesday
After the Wednesday morning yoga class we serve brunch, then you are free to do as you please. Options for the day include a trip to the local beach (about 35 mins by car) or a trip to the picturesque mountain village of Pampaneira and waterfall nearby.
Alternatively, you may wish to visit the stunning Alhambra Palace in Granada; or simply stay at Kaliyoga and enjoy a cookery workshop where the food you create will be served in the evening. Please note that kitchen space is limited to 8 people.
If you would prefer to dine out at a local restaurant, we can arrange a taxi to take you into Orgiva (10 min). If you’d prefer to rest at home, a light evening meal is available.
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).
You are welcome to sunbathe by the pool, 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). If you want to sleep in and miss a yoga class, that’s fine too.
Things to See and Do
There is also horse riding, great mountain walks, whitewashed Moorish villages, beautiful beaches (35 mins drive) and paragliding for the adventurous. We are just 50 minutes by car from the outstanding Alhambra Palace and Gypsy Flamenco quarter in Granada city.
We are 1.5 hours from Malaga airport, in the green Alpujarra region of Granada province. Being in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, the area is renowned for its gentle microclimate and waterfalls, gorges, Moorish villages & shaded valleys. One of the finest walking areas in southern Europe, the Alpujarras have been certified by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve.
