Lydia teaches a vitalising & powerful practice that is dappled with functional movement and explorative sequencing. Believing, that the practice of yoga should not be about embodying an idealistic view of how it should look but rather connecting our conscious mind to a feeling. Additionally, and possibly most importantly, representing the ethos that yoga is a full-bodied experience that lingers long after the physical practice. Lydia gives huge thanks to all her teachers that inspired her curiosity in this practice.
A stylish private home with extensive grounds and an infinity pool that appears to float above the trees. This villa’s rustic luxury, sustainable ethos and calming energy offers guests the chance to rest, reflect and rejuvenate. Nestled in the mountains just outside the pueblo blanco of Gaucín, it is an unbeatable destination for a yoga retreat.
There’s so much space to enjoy at this beautiful villa. At the heart of the house are two spacious living rooms with fireplaces. The kitchen opens on to the central courtyard with herb garden. Trees and flowers surround a central dining table.
On the other side of the house, the main living rooms open on to a large covered terrace with the most spectacular views towards Castillo del Aguila. There is another wonderful al-fresco dining area here as well as a lounge area looking onto the lawn below.
There are several other terraces and quiet seating areas dotted around the property, including a stunning ‘sundowner’ terrace below the pool with sofa seating.
One of our many pathways leads from the main house to the stunning private pool area. Totally secluded and secured by the gates and plants that surround it, this beautifully landscaped infinity pool is unique and a magnificent spot from which to enjoy breathtaking panoramic views as you swim or relax. The approximate total pool area is nearly 200sqm so big enough for fun, relaxing or exercising.
The wider pool area includes a pool house with fridge, shower, and toilet as well as a shaded seating area. There is a plenty of sunloungers and seating for everyone to enjoy.
