Hello, beautiful child of the sun! Sunchild Yoga invites you to seven days of exploring inner calmness and the child within where we welcome all levels to playfully combine and try different styles of yoga like Ashtanga Vinyasa, Vinyasa Flow, Yin, Restorative, and Nidra yoga. Experience mornings in silence, meditation, pranayama, playfully learn about yoga ethics and philosophy, enjoy vegetarian cooking sessions in the community, relaxation by the pool, picking figs from the trees, and chanting on the roof in an oasis of peace: a traditional Andalusian country house with incredible views and sunsets over mountains and the Alpujarra Valley.
This retreat can change your life and your view on yoga. All life is a yoga and we discover it and play as children do without competition. Learn to understand yourself and find peace and joy :)
Ina is a sun seeking free spirit with a laughing heart who likes to play, relax and discover beauty in nature. Her yoga seed was planted more than 10 years ago. She was still half a child when her mom asked her to join a yoga class with her (thank you mom!). Roots grew but it was not until she was in a difficult personal life phase when she deeply immersed in yoga and found back to her nature. Today, she is certified as an Ashtanga Vinyasa based yoga teacher and is based in Berlin, Germany. Ina’s classes emphasize connecting body, mind and spirit by breathing mindfully and slowing down consciously. She likes linking breath to movement for creating dynamic flowing as well as relaxing yoga practices. Her long year yoga immersion allows her to understand and pass on body sensitivity, flexibility sensations and appropriate alignment. With her calm and soothing voice Ina encourages each one to connect to their inner self for cultivating tranquility and self confidence in one’s own practice. She teaches yoga as a healing transformational process experiencing the expansion of perception of each individual.Ver más

FEEL SAVE - the place of the retreat is far from any bigger town (and far from crowds of people), our group is kept small (max. 12 people) and has the place for itself, and there is lots of space to allow keeping the necessary distance. The yoga shala is big enough, the weather pleasant enough to eat outdoors and and all extra activities will be outdoors as well.
For several generations up until now, the Cortijo has been an active place of production with many different buildings for many different uses and only a little extra room to spare for accommodation. Hence almost all rooms have shared bathrooms, some are only divided by curtains and some do not have windows, but we will spend most of the time outside anyway so the accommodation is mainly just for sleeping. You have different options for accommodation - a mix of single, double and shared twin rooms and a four-bed dormitory in an old barn.Ver más
At our retreat a fresh and healthy diet plays a significant role. The food menu is designed to support all the practices on the course by detoxifying as well as energizing our bodies. Using mostly organic ingredients as well as seasonal and local fruits and vegetables, you will be provided with 3 vegetarian meals per day. Please let us know if you have any other diet requirements Breakfast will be simple and healthy, consisting of different cereals, seasonal fruits and healthy smoothies. Lunch will be prepared together as a ‘learning by doing’ activity that will not only teach you new vegetarian cooking skills but you will experience the joy of participating and helping (karma yoga) and awakening the feeling of community and unity (= yoga).
-Arrival by airplane The closest airport is Granada. Malaga is the second best option. The Cortijo (our retreat) is located high in the Alpujarra mountains close to a tiny village called Cástaras. Trevélez, known as the “highest town of Spain” (1476 m) is only 15 kilometers away. The biggest town in the region is Órgiva, which is approximately 45 minutes drives away from the Cortijo. Órgiva is also the access town to the Alpujarra valley, coming from Granada or Màlaga, with some good bus connections. If you do not rent a car, you all have to make your way to Órgiva by BUS arriving there at 6 p.m. at the latest. There we will pick you up at 6:15 p.m. and bring you to the Cortijo / Retreat (12 EUR per person). *Getting to Órgiva To Granada there are less direct flights but from there it is easier to get to Órgiva (5 buses a day) and it is well worth a visit with the Alhambra and the Albaicín. Málaga is the main airport of all the Andalusian Mediterranean area as it is close to the very touristic Costa del Sol. Still quite unpopular, Málaga is a charming Mediterranean city at the coast with a tranquil Spanish flair, city beaches, a huge tropical plants park, home of Picasso and a pittoresque castle and is worth a visit if you wish to extend your stay or come some days earlier. Some people also fly to Seville for visiting this beautiful andalusian city and take a bus to Granada from there... -Arrival by bus ALSA is a bus company that offers budget and punctual bus rides throughout Spain. The timetable can be checked here but the website shows connections only some weeks in advance (so do not check connections yet. Be patient and trust. Spanish bus companies work perfectly, but not on the internet. It is usually totally ok to buy the ticket directly at the bus station). *From Granada to Órgiva Buses run five times a day from Granada to Órgiva for 5 EUR (one-way) *From Malaga to Órgiva There is one daily connection from Málaga to Órgiva leaving Málaga at 3 p.m. and arriving in Óriva at 6 p.m. (12 EUR). Perfect, our pick up in Orgiva will wait for your bus! Don´t worry. Depending on the number of people arriving in Málaga or Granada we will help you to organize the best possible and most economical option. We can do so about 2- 3 weeks before the retreat
-Car rental Another option is to rent a car: it is economical (about 70 EUR / week) and more flexible. We can offer to connect you with other retreat guests so you can share the ride and costs. You will not need a car once you are in the Cortijo but of course, getting there and away requests less planning ahead and avoids being dependent on bus schedules. Also, you can visit Trevelez or other white villages when you bring your own car. -Departure The retreat will end with a final sunrise yoga class and a collective farewell breakfast that will finish at about 10 pm. Please do not plan to leave before then. At 10:30 a taxi (15€ can bring you down to Orgiva (or fro 30 EUR even to Granada (if you are 4 people) -GPS coordinates 36° 55.543, -3° 16.388 (open in google maps)
