We are delighted to announce we are returning to this beautiful boutique hotel for another Fierce Grace getaway.

Relax in the secluded, boutique Andalusian hotel and estate with far reaching views down to the sea. Located in the peace of the Spanish countryside, and yet conveniently only thirty minutes from the airport and close to beautiful beaches, you can immerse yourself in the silence of nature in the sub-tropical gardens and surrounding hills. It is the perfect setting for yoga and meditation. This beautiful venue has been mentioned in The Times as one of Europe’s best yoga and wellness centres.

A salt-water swimming pool, manicured gardens and terraces with sea views, and one of the most beautiful yoga studios anywhere, equipped with a Yoga Wall, makes this a perfect place to unwind on your yoga holiday.

We have been running yoga retreats for 18 years and understand the needs of the discerning traveller. This is a holiday, with the best yoga tuition possible. Emphasis on Holiday. No strange agendas, forced early starts, or enforced vegan diets (we happily cater to vegans and vegetarians as well as gluten free diets however!) Meat, fish and wine are served, as well as a selection of beautiful healthy salads, and local spanish food. We want you to relax, swim, meet new friends, sleep, enjoy yourself and get fitter than you ever imagined was possible in a week.

"Michele and Terry treated me with such warmth I immediately felt a bit more relaxed.  The staff were very organised in getting me to my room, which was beautiful and huge.  The bathroom had a jacuzzi bath as well as shower, the four poster bed was very comfortable and the view from the large balcony stunning - a great start to the trip.
The teaching suited all levels, so the guests that weren’t Fierce Grace students still enjoyed the yoga.  For the Fierce Grace regulars there was a lovely mix of favourite classes, in depth modifications to suit injuries, fabulous music and the yoga wall....  definitely one of the highlights of the holiday, it was so freeing to hang from the yoga wall and also eased the discomfort of a back problem - I felt like a child rather than a 40-something!  My experience from this and previous retreats is a better understanding of yoga and Ayurveda, plus a greatly improved practise.
The food was balanced, generous in portion and tasty, the baked treats delicious and there was an abundance of wine too.
One of the key things that makes Michele’s yoga holidays stand out is the freedom to be yourself, indulge yourself and take part or sit out in a no judgement environment.  When all the other guests chose to head to Marbella and Malaga for shopping and gallery trips I chose to stay at the retreat and eat with a friend in the outdoor lounge area with wine and music - exactly what I needed.
On the final night there was a banquet and party that sent us home the next day on a high with fond memories, new friends and in my case a teeny weeny hangover!
I’d highly recommend this retreat and if you can’t make it do Tuscany you won’t regret it."

"It is very simple. The Malaga retreat showcases the total awesomeness of an FG retreat: One week with Michele and one of her amazing senior teachers full of no-nonsense yoga with great instructions, trips, good vibes, time to meet new people, talk, laugh, chill and enjoy the fantastic food and wine. It has not been my first FG retreat and definitely not my last, which should probably speak for itself. If I have to say more: Get serious on the yoga mat twice a day, have a hang on the lovely yoga wall, go do the beautiful river walk, enjoy the great views, if you are lucky finish everything off with one (or two) of Terry’s caipirinhas and a boogie and combine it all with a couple of trips to Malaga or Marbella seeing the sights and having dinner, if you can. Your body and mind will agree that a holiday is hardly better spent. Just one word of warning (and I am talking from experience): This stuff is addictive and you may find some friends for life and want to take many of these retreats.”
