What you'll do

Spend 7 nights of total relaxation in the stunning Spanish Aragon Pyrenees centring yourself with daily yoga and meditation sessions in spectacular mountain settings; explore natural surroundings, attend wellbeing workshops on raw food and sound meditation while staying in a 17th century farmhouse.

The unspoilt region of Aragon in the Spanish Pyrenees, known for its gorgeous landscapes and rich history, will be the setting of this 7 night / 8 day yoga, meditation, and wellbeing holiday.

This tranquil location is the idyllic spot for meditation sessions in stunning surroundings and daily yoga sessions. Plus, you’ll get the chance to visit several scenic spots in the region to immerse yourself and benefit from this unique setting.

Start each day with a revitalising yoga and meditation session to focus your day. Then, branch out into the region with guided walks to mountain lakes, medieval bridges, and historic villages. Marvel at the stunning Spanish Pyrenees with walking meditation sessions and picnic lunches in serene mountain settings.

Throughout the week, attend various workshops on wellbeing and healthy living. Join Julia for a workshop on raw food diets (complete with tasty energy balls!) and then reflect on the ancient art of sound meditation in another session. Learn about energy flow and the 7 Chakras before practising these techniques during excursions through the surrounding mountains.

During your holiday, stay in a gorgeously renovated 17th-century farmhouse in any of its 7 guest rooms, complete with a wonderful view of the surrounding grounds or mountains. Each room has a private en-suite bathroom and various other modern amenities.

The grounds include a vegetable patch used to cook your meals, beautiful gardens, and a courtyard with a library, the ideal place to unwind and immerse yourself in the local culture and cuisine.
