This 6 day 5 night residential retreat will be held at the very special Santillan Center, in Malaga Spain. Set in a secluded rural area, Santillan is an Andalusian paradise. A farm of 30,000 sq meters, it’s located in the peaceful countryside, surrounded by the silence of the mountain and with wonderful sea views, and yet is conveniently only 20 minutes from Malaga airport.

With 20 individually styled rooms, paying special attention to color, harmony and balance with the environment. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning, and each comes with a private outdoor space, either veranda or terrace, with lovely views of the gardens, surrounding hills or down the valley to the sea.

This event is carefully designed to support an in-depth learning environment, for personal growth. Having experienced Restorative yoga and the value of rest and silence, it is invaluable to further this practice within a residential retreat. This is a rare opportunity to offer oneself permission for personal process and integration.

Covid Measures - Santillan has implemented the necessary protocols, hygiene and social distancing measures to guarantee your well-being and safety. We also offer single accommodation with private bathroom only at this present moment to our students, and an ample collection of yoga props for the own personal use throughout the week.


You will be treated to delicious, healthy and seasonal meals from the beginning of the retreat until brunch on the final morning. Ingredients are sourced locally from the on site gardens and chicken coop plus neighboring organic farms. All dietary requirements will be catered to as part of this retreat. And remember, everything tastes better when grown under the Spanish sun!


Centro Santillan is about 36 km east of Malaga. The closest international airport is AGP (Malaga), which is serviced by a large number of international and budget airlines from many countries.

We can arrange a taxi transfer for you: fee €50 each way for a regular passenger car, which may take up to 4 people (depending on luggage). Cash only paid directly to the driver.

Check-in 2pm on Day 1 (Program starts at 4pm)
