Spanish Mountain Eco
Yoga Retreat 2024
Saturday 1st June to Saturday 8th June
Just two spaces remaining on this retreat!
I welcome you back...
I am super excited to announce we are heading back to beautiful Valle De Vida tucked away in the Andalusian Mountains in June 2024.
Spread over 18 acres of countryside, this tranquil, remote and private oasis offers breathtaking scenery including orange and lemon groves, rolling hills and views for miles to see. The perfect get away from your busy lifestyle.
40 minutes from Malaga airport, you're totally away from the hustle and bustle of tourists. Jump straight into the solar heated pool, sunbathe on a lounger, book a massage treatment, and attend daily yoga classes ran by your host. Take time to reset, read, nourish the body with incredible food and drinks, and leave feeling like you can conquer the world!
Recharged and reconnected to your mindset, your body, and your emotional energy.
Visualise yourself here
This 7 day women's only retreat holiday offers the power to build a sisterhood of support, care and self-love.
The retreat is aimed at full time workers looking to find balance in their lifestyle, mothers to step back from their duties and re-find themselves as women, and business women who struggle to step away from the demands of being their own boss!
Minimum age of 18, no maximum age.
Do any of these sound like you?
The retreat is a perfect balance of structured and free time, allowing you to socialise and meet like-minded women, however, also giving you time to step away and find a peaceful spot at Valle de Vida to rest and recharge. There's enough space for us all.
With highs of 30 degrees Celsius, it is the perfect temperature to have morning and afternoon activities, and to chill at the hottest parts of the day.
The yoga classes will be vinyasa, hatha and yin yoga styles. Adaptions and progressions will be offered in each class to suit your practice. The instructor can support with alignments and adjustments to help re-align your body.
A full PAR-Q will be asked to be filled out before the retreat.
Food & Drink
As part of the retreat we will be blessed with our very own in house chef! They will take full control of the kitchen so you won't need to prepare, wash, wipe or clean for the whole week.
The food offered will be vegetarian, meat and fish. (Please let the host know about any dietary requirements when booking)
All meals are provided as part of your retreat* as well as a morning smoothie each day, unlimited tea, coffee, fruit bowl, and water too.
*Three meals a day, excluding the day trip to Malaga where lunch will not be provided.*
Meet the host
Hey! My name is Nicole.
I'm a qualified yoga teacher, sound healer, events planner and stand up paddle board instructor from East Sussex, UK.
Breathe With Ease was born in May 2019 when I returned to the UK from working in Greece as a full time fitness and yoga teacher. I wanted to offer an array of beautiful yoga classes, events and experiences to my community. Teaching my clients about balancing their lifestyle and living in the present moment.
As we have grown, I've evolved the business and created new paths into wellness events and UK and European retreats!
I teach vinyasa, hatha and yin yoga styles, as well as yoga for sport, injury prevention and recovery. I first discovered my love for yoga about 7 years ago while taking a trip to Indonesia and fell in love with the practice. I have a serious passion about keeping in tune with my body through good and poor health, and learning the signs it shows me to look after my health.
Yoga is my saving grace, my root back to becoming grounded. How I unwind, take time for myself and truly listen to my mind, body and soul.
I am over the moon and so excited to be launching this retreat again! It is important to me to offer a retreat I would also want to go to. Running my own business does mean I find it hard to also find balance and accept "free time". Therefore, I know this is needed by so many other women, and sharing a space where we can reconnect, recharge and reset is so important to me.
So much hard work has gone into planning it, learning and adapting from last year too, and I can't wait to be at Valle de Vida in June with you.
"I have never felt so welcomed into her world as I did when joining her at the Breathe With Ease Spanish retreat. I hadn't met Nicole before I signed up and I am so grateful for doing so. The yoga was incredible, the retreat was organised to perfection and my whole experience was life changing. I can't thank Nicole enough for the love and attention she gave to each and everyone of us on that retreat. Eight days surrounded by so many wonderful woman who I can now all call friends, all guided by the world's kindest soul"
"I have wanted to give yoga a go for some time now. I went to a class with Nicole and after my first session immediately purchased 5 more. As a beginner, Nicole made me feel completely at ease and with her support and instruction I found myself feeling so relaxed and refreshed after class. The oils and venues are fantastic. A great way to reconnect with yourself. I can't recommend highly enough."
!I had a great time on the Spanish yoga retreat, so relaxed and felt inner calm and peace from the yoga and peaceful environment. Also met some amazing people and friends. Food was incredible! Nicole was great as always, adapting the practice to suit our needs.
Would highly recommend."

Accommodation at Valle De Vida
The main house is a beautifully restored traditional Andalucian Fiinca. It has six bedrooms, a large kitchen and lounge area.
However, for guests who want the full Spanish sensory experience of the mountains at night, there are two large tipis to bring you closer to Cartama’s nature, as do two new ME-Pods, and the two Geodesic domes. The tipis and domes do not have air-conditioning, however it is cool in the evening/night time so only fans are provided.
The tipis and ME-Pods are clean, spacious and very comfortable, with tiled floors, electricity and beautiful bedding, perfect for those with an affinity for the outdoors, but who don’t wish to compromise on comfort. Each is connected with paths winding amongst the almond and olive groves, picked out with solar lights. They all have beautiful views across the valley, the stars glittering, a Spanish night breeze whispering through the trees, the sounds of crickets and cicadas lulling you to sleep.
Accommodation is first come first serve, and as part of your deposit booking you will be asked what accommodation you'd most likely want. Rooms, tipis, pods and domes have space for two or three people. Do choose in your booking form if you are wishing to share with a friend, or happy to share with a fellow yogi that also joins the retreat. There are also rooms for private/single occupancy too.
If you wish to have your own private room, tipi or dome there is an additional charge of 30 pounds per night (as stated in optional costs) which will be added to the overall price of your retreat.
