Yoga & Walking in Asturias
Namaste from the mountains of Asturias – Northern Spain! Welcome to Asturias, Spain’s best kept secret and to Hotel Fuentes de Lucía, your home away from home. This dynamic retreat will include twice daily yoga classes with Claudia Steinhauser of Arte de Yoga. Our spacious yoga studio, an oasis of tranquility and warmth, overlooks the stunning pastoral valley of Quirós, located in a rural region of Asturias.
Begin the day with an early morning yoga practice followed by a hearty breakfast in the main dining room, formerly a mill, before the day’s hiking adventure unfolds. We walk beautiful mountain trails, averaging approximately 15 kilometers per day. Savor local Asturian cuisine, sample aromatic cheeses and sip the traditional beverage, Sidra Asturianu, made from locally grown apples. Trek through scenic gorges and alongside bubbling brooks; dine in local taverns; explore 10th-century churches and relax under Spain’s oldest yew tree, El Tiexo, planted more than 1000 years ago in a sacred meadow.
In the late afternoon we journey deep into yoga’s restorative practice to rejuvenate our trekking legs before savoring lovely home-cooked dinners prepared by the owners of Fuentes de Lucia.
We’ll be accompanied by friendly and knowledgeable guides who fill our days with a soulful blend of scenic hiking, historical insights, traditional experiences and wonderful food.
