Yoga Bliss in Spain - 16 Jun 2013
We are really careful to only include spas or products that we know and trust on Spa Ireland. Often customers ask our advice and increasingly about yoga holidays outside of Ireland. My personal plan is to do one yoga holiday a year which is a complete escape and this years was a special trip to Denia, Spain, where last month I spent 6 days getting my tired and weary body back under some kind of control.
Denia is about an hour north of Alicante and a gorgeous, unspoilt Spanish village. Guests stay between a couple of small boutique hotel (dependant on numbers - there were 21 of us - more manageable than you might think!) and each just a ten minute walk from the sea. The location of the main base hotel, Hotel Chamarel, was perfect, sitting in the historic quarter of Denia amongst local Spanish families. The hotel was once a home of grand proportions before being sympathetically restored into the 15 room hotel that it is today and it's vibe is a fusion of Spanish - Asian. Room 201 is magical.
Yoga takes place daily, the course also included Pilates, so 90 minutes of each per day was just about enough to get the joints moving and remind me that I had abdominal muscles. Food was included for most of the stay and was richly vegetarian (there's plenty of meat in the nearby tapas bars so no need to be totally puritanical of body unless you feel you must). Highlight of any yoga trip is the other people who attend, and on this trip, each one fabulous and some lifelong friends in the making. For more go to http://www.blissfulretreat.com/.
