A different Yoga retreat in Arribes del Duero national park
Welcome to our Yoga retreat in Arribes del Duero – a National park right on the edge of one of Europes oldest borders, the Duero river that divides Spain and Portugal. An almost secret spot and a territory where time seem to have stopped some 100 years ago. We stay at country houses where traditional architecture have been respected and maintained. We enjoy early morning walks and yoga sessions in nature. One day we take off for a yoga day with horses. Surrounded by donkeys & beautiful stone walls dividing the meadows we promise you a 100% spiritual yoga retreat that will disconnect you and get you in phase with your senses and feelings. In the village we will also meet local producers and the elder still living the countryside life will tell us about the past and present of this beautiful yet unknown region of eastern Spain.
In the Sayago region of Zamora there is a small town called Fornillos de Fermoselle. It is certainly one of the most beautiful, authentic and interesting places we have been lucky enough to find, as sometimes happens, almost by accident. In Fornillos we have met wonderful people such as Victor Casas, biologist and hotel owner and Teresa Cotorruelo (Piki) jam artisan and yoga professor. Soon, we were thinking together to prepare a trip for a small group: An active and inner journey… A journey of yoga, walking, cooking in gorgeous nature of Fornillos and its surroundings. The result is the active retreat we are proposing today.
For five days, small groups of people, families or friends… may share a country house, practice yoga every day, walk and learn to cook different recipes, some natural cosmetics, popular wisdom… Just 1h drive from Zamora or 3h30′ from Madrid, this corner of Castilla y León is a lovely place to practice yoga, and much more, and will for sure surprise you. It is a place to discover and get lost for a few days. Your memories will be unforgettable.
