With Special guest Sharon Stathis

A meeting of skills, knowledge and hearts. Equilibrio Ayurvedic Reflexology Retreat is the perfect environment to relax, recharge and be inspired. Bringing together holistic bodyworkers from different disciplines, in the beautiful Alpujarran mountains -a nurturing and restful environment – to learn and share knowledge of Ayurveda.

Mornings begin with a restorative Yoga & meditation session; breathing in the fresh mountain air & soaking up the stunning views.
Following a delicious breakfast, workshops will focus on the theme of Ayurveda – a system of medicine with historical roots in the Indian subcontinent- expanding our knowledge, understanding & experience of well-being. In the afternoon therapy swaps will provide an opportunity to practice new skills and learn about and experience other therapies.

All activities are optional, which means you can take the opportunity to fully relax and recharge, selecting the activities that best meet your needs in that moment.

Delicious and healthy meals are provided by the dedicated kitchen staff. There is plenty of time to explore the stunning mountain location and to enjoy the centres facilities.

Our price for this retreat is 795€.  There is a 10% early-bird discount for guests paying in full 4 months before the retreat begins, so a cost of 715€.  This price includes 6 nights accommodation in a twin shared room (single occupancy available on request with supplement cost), three meals a day, daily yoga & meditation classes, four workshop sessions, treatment exchange sessions, 2 complimentary holistic treatments (an Ayurvedic Massage and an Indian Head massage) and full use of the centre facilities including the outdoor pool.
It does not include flights or transfers.

There will be a different workshop each day to broaden your holistic knowledge of Ayurveda using nutrition, herbal medicine and self-development.

Detailed Timetable

Each day starts by nurturing your physical and mental well being. These sessions are suitable for everyone from beginners to advanced and individual requirements can be accommodated for.

Like the rest of the programme this session is optional, so if your needs are better served by staying in bed that’s fine too.

The focus in the kitchen is on tasty and health-giving meals. Each day will be an opportunity to experience and gain information about eating well.

In this session workshops will be offered by holistic health practitioners.

The team section on this page gives you more details about the workshops.

Making full and fantastic use of the abundant local and homegrown vegetables, local olive oil, cheeses and other local produce.

Two treatments from experienced Equilibrio bodywork practitioners are included in your retreat experience.

Equilibrio team practitioners will be on hand throughout the week to share their knowledge with you in a relaxed and informal way.

There will also be time and space in this session to team up with one of the other participants for a treatment swap and more in depth sharing should you chose to do so.

Whether you are a newly qualified or an experienced practitioner, learning from and sharing knowledge with peers can be interesting and rewarding. Experiencing each others techniques and discussing methods of treatment also allows us the opportunity to look at things in a different way. It can be a great opportunity to build confidence in our own skills and empower us as therapists, especially if we are working in practice on our own or returning to bodywork after a break.

Sunday morning will be free for you to explore the wider area, go hiking or horse-riding, visit the local town or the mountain villages. Your host Anna will be available to organise any trips you would like to take and picnics if required.

Alternatively you can spend the time further enjoying the retreat facilities. There are many interesting books in the library which you can borrow during your stay.

Another culinary delight, also including a sumptuous and surprisingly healthy desert.

Evenings are free time for moonlight swimming, star gazing or just hanging out.
