Join me for a week of yoga, meditation and more in beautiful Andalusia, Spain

22 - 29 February 2020


I welcome you to join me for a week of recreation through yoga, meditation, philosophy, restoration and relaxation at the wonderful Centro Santillán in Andalusia, Spain. 

The centre is amazingly beautiful and has a large yoga room fully equipped with props and a large yoga wall. It is light and has a spectacular view over the hills toward the Mediterranean. 

The guest rooms are large and beautiful. Each one with either a balcony or a terrace with beautiful views. All the rooms have en suite bathrooms. There are numerous common spaces both indoors and outdoors where you can read, contemplate or socialize. The premises and surroundings are absolutely gorgeous and the view over the Mediterranean breathtaking.

The excellent food is lovingly prepared from local produce, most of it grown organically on the premises and varying according to season. The menu is mainly vegetarian, with the addition of fish, if wanted. Allergies and food sensitivities are catered for. 

We will have daily asana classes, meditation sessions and lectures/discussions. There will also be time to hike, read or really take it easy, to rest and allow the yoga to take effect.

Massages and excursions are available for an extra charge.

Numerous airlines fly to Málaga, making it easily accessible. The centre is located about 35 km east of Málaga airport. Pick-up can be arranged by the center for an extra charge.

What others have said about the retreat ...

This week has been a real eye-opener for me as a yoga beginner.
Tove’s calm, clear and knowledgeable guidance has made it easy to implement even for a rookie. My body feels so relaxed. No back pain anymore – fantastic!
And also the mind has calmed down from the daily hassle. I planned to work in between the two daily sessions, but I soon realized that this is very much for the mind and forget about the work now. The break is so welcome. I will continue with yoga for sure.

I registered for Tove’s one week yoga retreat without even knowing her or Purna Yoga but I knew from the very beginning that I could trust my intuition just after reading her first email. In return I got an amazing week with a yoga teacher whose guidance is incredible, and who, besides the subtle movements of yoga postures, made me discover the real meaning of yoga: love!”

Warm hugs and best wishes from Brussels,

Thank you for
all the differences in
life experience
which all blended together
in the dance of yoga
accompanied by the crowing of the rooster.

Despite the cold weather outside here
in Finland I have the most beautiful and warm feeling inside because of the past week. I feel so fortunate and grateful I was able to share it with you! Like Anna put it into words, I also found that yoga came into life both in and outside of the yoga studio.

Purna yoga with two experienced caring teachers and a generous yoga wall - Nirvana 🙂 That is what I came for - Tove and Nicola, trainers I can trust!
I have been able to refresh certain parts of my training and renew and improve certain aspects of my practice as well as learn a new series for back spasm. I particularly appreciated the personal session and the 4 o’clock specials. I also appreciated the work in sub groups which allowed everyone to progress.
— Nigel, 500-hr Purna Yoga instructor

I was surprised how well I managed 7 days in a row with 180 minutes of yoga. But it was because of Tove’s skills to lead one through with one’s individual possibilities. Never felt disappointed or failed in anything. My body just sang of happiness.

The meditation part was beautifully done. With her soothing voice Tove helped me to settle down and led me to my essence.

As a singer, I found an important new connection with my breathing and my resonating voice. Easiness that helps me both with the body and the mind in singing.

I couldn’t expect more from a week intensive. I totally fell in love with this way of helping my body and mind in everyday life as well as in my profession. The journey with Purna Yoga continues.

Thank You!
