The Venue

Nestling amongst the Andalucían Mountains this venue provides the perfect backdrop for a peaceful and tranquil yoga retreat.

Morning / Guided Meditation walk amongst nature
2 Daily Yoga sessions suitable for beginners and intermediate levels.
Enjoy my daily morning Hatha session, a balanced & holistic flow sequence will be introduced each morning to energize you for the day.
Evening zen sessions shall unwind with more restorative & relaxing Hatha Flow that focus on healing and letting go. Both classes are designed to help you develop your own personal practice once you leave the retreat.
Daily Mediation and Pranayama sessions, you will learn and practice pranayama and simple
meditation technique that will help to create a calm, creative and peaceful state of mind.
Evening Yoga Nidra and sleep preparation sessions.

There is a purpose built yoga circle in the shade of the trees on the mountainside plus a yoga yurt for indoor practice.

A second space between the buildings is used for meditation .

It is also possible to do yoga indoors in the dining room, with its full length panoramic windows and fantastic views, or on the deck beside the swimming pool.

The relaxation area surrounding it is a natural sun trap. Lay on the sun-beds with a book and look down through the olive groves to the lake below you and far in the distance glimpse the glittering sea and occasionally Africa

Additional Information 

As keen nutritionists the owners offer raw food options at some meals. The food is delicious.

Richard and Betty also offer on-site Massages, Holistic Therapies, Reiki and Healing that complement the retreat activities perfectly. Personalised consultations with a nutritional therapist are also available. Cost is 45 euros per hour

The retreat is relatively isolated and car hire is recommended if you wish to explore the region. The nearest village is Periana, 4 kms away down the mountain – here you will find a variety of shops, cafés and a restaurant.

Horse riding (one hour away), visits to the hot springs and other excursions can all be arranged by your hosts.

A short walk away, within the hamlet, is a local bar (picture below) with coffee, drinks and snacks, these are also available on site from the in-house bar.

Your basic holiday includes vegetarian, vegan or raw food diet options, with one night dedicated to a trip to a local restaurant where you can buy a Spanish meal for a modest price.

A large breakfast/brunch will be served after the morning yoga class and dinner after the evening yoga class. A snack is provided at lunch time.

All the facilities here are of a very high standard although we feel we should point out that the rooms are small – but perfect for your needs.

There are 8 single rooms and 1 room with a double bed which serves as a double or single.

All rooms have en-suite facilities with a terr- ace; look down the mountains over the lake (on a clear day you can see Africa) .

A wonderful day had by all

Quote from Laura Ashirst, trustee of COLAC A Celebration of a Life After Cancer 

A Celebration of Life After Cancer (COLAC) Aroma-Yoga Day: as a trustee of COLAC, I’d like to thank Amanda Wray-Ward and all the staff at Whinstone View for providing the perfect setting for our fundraising event. A special thank you to Andrea Cook, for her beautiful yoga session. Combining the disciplines of aromatherapy and yoga we created a special wellbeing day for local ladies who have all had a cancer diagnosis. £335.40 has been raised to help individuals and families in the North-East experiencing financial hardship as a result of a cancer diagnosis. Thank you to everybody who attended.

I have a very special event coming up in May that I am really looking forward to teaching. Aroma Yoga will be a unique event which offers a well- being day aimed at individuals who have had a cancer diagnosis who are undergoing active treatment and those who are the post treatment stage. Relax and unwind in the peaceful surroundings of Wray’s Barn and Whinstone .

Due to space and safety we have limited spaces so please book ASAP to secure a place. All money will be donated to A Celebration of Life After Cancer which is a local charity. 
Introduced to the charity, aromatherapy talk by Laura Ashurst, Yoga Mediation  and Relaxation with myself, followed by a light lunch and tea all included in the ticket.
