A place to relax & rejuvenate
Most of our 7-day retreats start on a Sunday and end the following Saturday. You are welcome to book consecutive weeks for a deeper experience. Kaliyoga’s yoga classes and activities are focused on awakening the ability to know yourself deeper. All you need is curiosity and focus, then health, relationships and a positive outlook can all be developed and maintained with a simple, regular home practice which you will learn here in one week.
Our week-long yoga retreat Spain includes a yoga course with our dedicated in-house teachers, designed to re-calibrate and re-connect mind with body, whilst developing sensitivity and focus.
Our delicious cuisine will bring pleasure to your taste buds
Our menu varies according to the season – for example in summer we lean more towards raw salads, grains and superfoods, then when the days are shorter we choose hearty dishes for warmth. We source all our seasonal ingredients from local farmers who deliver to us in person.
“I had the most wonderful holiday at Kaliyoga and must congratulate Rosie and Jonathan for creating the perfect retreat.”

Local Area Info
Kaliyoga is located in rural countryside near the market town of Orgiva which lies in the Alpujarra mountain range between Granada city and the Mediterranean coast. Transfers from Granada airport take about an hour by car, and under 2 hours from Malaga airport.
Spain's highest mountains "Sierra Nevada" are a magnificent backdrop to this partly undiscovered area of Spain, complete with fiestas, Moorish castles and some of the best and least expensive food and wine to be found. The region has dramatic and enchanting valleys, forests, vineyards, waterfalls, rivers and picturesque white mountain villages, which unlike many of the coastal resorts have remained unspoiled by tourism. And all this with about 325 days of sunshine per year. Where else is it possible to see oranges, lemons, figs, with a backdrop of snow-capped mountains? Andalusia is, above all, Light. It is a painter's and writer's paradise.
This medieval city is located on one of the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountain range and was a stronghold of the Nazeri Dynasty, the last great Moorish kingdom in Spain. On leaving Spain the Arabs had to leave behind one of the most fabulous medieval palaces ever built, the Alhambra of Granada and the palace itself is protected by the Alcazaba fortress. The walls and ceiling of the Alhambra's rooms are incredibly beautiful with graceful and harmonious courtyards and running water. The Generalife summer palace, on the same hill, is known for its lush gardens with beautiful fountains and tranquil ponds. The Sierra Nevada mountain range rises to the south of Granada and contains a ski resort with the highest peak in continental Spain, Mulhacén (3482 m).

On the road between Orgiva and Lanjaron there is a turning (near BP petrol station) that leads to the most scenic mountain villages. Most accessible are three villages in the Poqueira Valley: Pampaneira, Bubion and Capeleira. They all have cafés and bars, and there are shops selling local produce. There is a funky bar in Bubion called Bar Morisco. Continue up hill past Capeleira and you'll find a flamenco nightclub called Al Catifa, open late 'til late. There is also a lovely mountain spring beyond Capeleira where you can swim in natural stone pools. On the way back, take a left at the junction near Bubion and follow the signs to Pitres, Ferreirola and Mecina Fondales for gorgeous mountain walks. There's a family-owned bar in Mecina with the best paella - ask for Marissa.
