“Peter and Emma,
Thank you both so much for the most wonderful experience of yoga, breath work and yoga of the heart that I enjoyed at your retreat in Spain in May of this year.
I felt that you complimented each other beautifully with the two different practices each day and came away from the week, having gained more knowledge of yoga, a deeper spiritual understanding of myself and more importantly having met and practiced with a wonderful set of individuals.
I felt that Molino Del Rey was a perfect location to hold a retreat such as yours, the environment perfectly complimenting the ethos of the retreat. The facilities together with the quality of the catering were very good. Molino Del Rey had a lovely rhythm of its own which intertwined seamlessly with the retreat.
That leaves me just to say a huge thank you to both of you. A most wonderful week, which I shall hold, close to my heart, always”
“Molino Del Rey is an amazing place, nestled in a little hamlet on the hillside festoon with wild flowers, orange and lemon trees. Peaceful walks, after evening yoga and delicious dinner, amidst this picturesque Yoga retreat were always enjoyed; accompanied by fresh fruit plucked from nearby Apricot and Cherry trees on route. The dwelling itself, which has painstakingly and lovingly evolved over 25 years, is a magical place, with spring water tributaries running in and around the structure. The many colorful mosaics and paintings provide a beautiful backdrop to the numerous nooks and crannies that you can escape to for some solitary down time. Letting go of your normal busy and demanding life style is made easy, especially if complemented with a soothing and relaxing massage.
The morning and evening yoga, lead by Emma and Peter were expertly woven together to suit a mixed ability class, progressively extending everyone beyond their comfort zone. Their different styles of Yoga complimented one another and added a welcome variety to our daily practice. Classes were both fun and challenging. By the end of the week everyone showed a noticeable and discernable improvement, not only in his or her personal practice but also in his or her state of mind.
I am more than happy to recommend this Yoga retreat to all you Yogis with a sense of adventure, curiosity and willingness to immerse in Yoga, set in this beautiful location of Andalucía. Thank you again Emma and Peter”
“The yoga retreat in Spain was a revelation to someone new to yoga and suffering from a number of stubborn injuries.
Peter was outstanding – very experienced, knowledgeable, insightful and meticulous, his teaching left me with a real understanding of technique and postures which continue to uplift me and help my pain management.
His classes were beautifully balanced by those of the exuberant Emma’s. I enjoyed the exhilarating freedom and playfulness of her teachings highlighting breathing, movement, chanting, singing which enabled me to reconnect with the joyful and excellent release of my voice and the inner child.
The venue was very special with its caves and lovely, sun-drenched stepped gardens. The mouthwateringly delicious vegetarian food was superb and highly recommended.”
