Amanda and Paul
Amanda and Paul are the founders of Yoga Retreats Spain after moving in 2006. Before moving to Spain they designed and built bespoke homes for individuals. Unfortunately, this entailed working 14 hours a day, so after 10 years they decided a change was necessary. Yoga breaks in Spain On frequent visits to Spain, Amanda and Paul noticed that the culture was different; the Spanish put their family first, which made them realize that they were spending very little time with their children. Not only were the children missing out, but the parents too. They had always loved to keep fit, and yoga and meditation were just part of this. Soon the couple realized they felt happiest on their trips to Spain as keeping fit in the sun is so much easier. Eventually Amanda and Paul took time out and asked themselves if they really did want to move to Spain. The trappings of a successful company were not enough. Spain was calling, the move was inevitable. Their holidays in Spain, showed them the slower pace of life and of course the year-round sun, there really was no contest. In the 9 years Amanda and Paul have been running yoga and health retreats in Spain, they have been inspired by the combined desire of guests and their own inspiration, to create the perfect ‘wellbeing retreat’, complete with sunshine, blue skies and beautiful scenery. Listening carefully to the guests and giving more of what they want has paid off, as Amanda and Paul were chosen to be featured in OM Magazine, for their exhibition at the London Yoga Show and featured in The Times as a Top Retreat. Location
This inspired yoga retreat is located on the beautiful coast of the Costa Blanca, Spain. A very special place, recognized by the World Health Organization as having one of the healthiest climates on Earth. Unquestionable, when experiencing the expansive clear blue skies, breath taking scenery and abundance of clean fresh air, which instantly brings about a sense of calm, soothing your mind, body and soul. Northern Costa Blanca’s sleepy picturesque villages, entwined within the ubiquitous orange and lemon groves, monasteries and castles, which are scattered across the Costa Blanca. A reminder of the 800 year occupation of the Moors (Muslims). At war with the Christians during the period known as Reconquista (from the 8th century through to the 15th century). Their occupation began in 711 AD, the Fall of Granada in 1492 being the end of the Muslim rule. Moraira is considered to be the jewel of the Costa Blanca, a gift from the Mediterranean. With its origins as a small fishing village, the town has kept its character, with its narrow cobbled streets, cafe, bars, restaurants and chic boutiques, having earned a reputation for the rich and famous; seeking to unwind from the public gaze. The Marina, town and surrounding areas were used for the film “Cold Light of Day” with Bruce Willis, Henry Cavill, and Sigourney Weaver. With a coastline of over 200 kilometers of soft sandy beaches, washed by the calm waters of the Mediterranean and over 300 days of sunshine each year, it is not surprising that guests return year after year.
