Breath, Movement, Balance – A Fall Retreat to Spain with Julie Dohrman and Peter Goodman.
October 17, 2021 – October 24, 2021
Join Julie and Peter for a wondrous week of yoga, rejuvenation, and adventure at Molino del Rey, Malaga, Spain!
In the spectacular Andalucian mountains, located in a gorgeous green valley flanked by orange groves, you’ll find Molino del Rey. A one of a kind retreat venue, Molino del Rey has well earned its reputation as the best retreat center in Spain, and one of the best in the world. It features a beautiful and bright, fully equipped yoga shala for our 2 daily yoga practices, a partially encaved salt water pool, and gorgeous, comfortable, and beautifully appointed rooms.
The center has plenty of hideaway spots with hammocks and lounge areas to rest and reconnect with yourself, plus a collection of incredible caves throughout the property, ideal for meditation. Expect fantastic and highly acclaimed food, local wine, and all of your needs cared for on this week long rejuvenating retreat!
The week will highlight yoga as a life practice to create and sustain balance. The rhythm of twice daily practice, morning silence, meditation and ample rest will leave you feeling clear and calm. Morning practice will be more upbeat and active, with evening practice offering a cool and slower pace.
Julie and Peter are long time friends on the path of yoga and will share teaching each day, deeply immersing you in intelligent, thoughtful and mindful yoga practices.
Available are massage, spa treatments, sauna, wine tasting, and local trips to nearby cities. There’s plenty to explore in the area, but you may not want to go anywhere and instead, relish in the simplistic living at Molino del Rey!
