Our Summer Retreats are relaxing and deeply nurturing, featuring daily yoga sessions, delicious food and optional bodywork sessions from our world-class practitioners
I was a little nervous about booking a yoga retreat, but I felt welcome from the moment I arrived and lovingly absorbed into the beautiful environment you have created. It is exactly how it is described on the website and so much more besides. Suraloh, London More Reviews

Whilst new styles of yoga come and go, Kaliyoga advocates a yoga method that is fundamental to all yoga styles. It is also as effective for beginners as for experienced practitioners, allowing both to practice and learn in the same class. With expert step-by-step guidance, your yoga practice can become a profound tool for deeper self-understanding, in addition to developing a healthy, well-toned physique.
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.
Farm To Table Healthy Food with Gourmet Flavour
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.
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.
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.
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).
Horse Riding / Excursions
There is also horse riding, mountain hiking, beautiful beaches (35 min drive) and paragliding for the adventurous.
We are just 50 minutes by car from the outstanding Alhambra Palace in Granada city.
We are 1.5 hours from Malaga airport in the green Alpujarra region of Granada province with a gentle micro-climate, waterfalls, gorges, white Moorish villages & shaded valleys. You can walk to shops and cafes in the market town of Orgiva (25 mins). The Alpujarra region has been certified by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve and is one of the finest walking areas in southern Europe.
