A wonderful experience...

"I'm a regular attendee at Dee’s yoga retreats. My life is demanding and hectic so for me they're an opportunity to pause, relax and reset. Dee’s extensive experience in Yin Yoga allows for a wide ranging adaptations to postures so classes really do cater for all abilities. These retreats are a wonderful experience which I highly recommend."

A restorative haven

La Cura is a restorative haven – a place to reset, revitalise and relax. A place for inner reflection, connection and re-balancing. A warm welcome awaits you at this beautifully restored 500-year-old Catalan masia in Northern Spain – the ideal setting for wellness and restoration. Understated luxury and a warm atmosphere with a relaxed vibe makes La Cura an ideal place for inner reflection.

Just 20 minutes from Girona and 90 minutes from Barcelona, La Cura is surrounded by more than 40 acres of walnut trees and hops, with access to wonderful hiking and cycling trails. The beaches of the Costa Brava are just 20 minutes away. 

The yoga studio, framed by a beautiful courtyard garden, spaciously fits twenty eco cork mats. There's a 16-metre salt-based pool with outdoor seating, a sauna, outdoor shower and a Japanese Ofuro hot tub. Two equipped treatment rooms are available for you to enjoy beauty and massage therapy with local experts during your retreat.

An incredibly high level of service...

"So far, I've attended three SPACE retreats. The quality of the tutors has been exceptional, the daily activities were varied and always just challenging enough while still being deeply relaxing. Dee’s attention to detail is incredible, from the wonderful food, to the music and poetry choices, she has an ability to provide an incredibly high level of service to suit everybody with such grace and kindness. The SPACE retreats have been very special, thank you!"

What to expect on retreat

This retreat is designed for you to take as much or as little as you need from it. The yoga will be suitable for everyone, including beginners. We welcome partners who want to enjoy the rest but don't wish to participate in the yoga.

Our aim is for you to completely recharge, rest and RESET during these 4 days.

Yoga Room at La Cura

Meditation or breathwork

We'll start each day with either a guided meditation or breathwork session.

Yoga to energise & awaken

We'll then enjoy a gentle morning stretch to ease out all the tension, followed by some easy movement to energise you for your day. The perfect way to wake up. If you’re a beginner to yoga, this is absolutely fine. You won't be expected to do anything complicated or difficult.

Free time

This is your time so you get to choose how you spend it. There's a 16-metre salt-based pool with outdoor seating and sun-loungers on a part-covered terrace for the best choice of sun or shade, a sauna, outdoor shower and a Japanese Ofuro hot tub.

If you’re feeling active, there are bicycles available to explore the local countryside. Or you could indulge in some private massage and other therapy treatments with local experts (subject to availability and for a supplement). 

Workshops

We'll offer daily workshops to allow you to dive deeper into your experience. We'll explore a range of wonderful topics, for example, yoga philosophy, the Sutras, breathwork, the Wim Hof Method (see below) or an introduction to Instinctive Meditation.

There'll also be time for you to ask questions, explore yoga concepts and gain a greater understanding of who you are and what it is you need. There'll be 30 minutes of silence before lunch to reflect, journal, meditate, relax or walk.

Yin yoga

Our evening Yin yoga class will be a slower practice where poses are held longer to allow you to really sink deep into the body, calm the mind and turn the focus inwards. This is a perfect class to end the day.

Sleep yoga 

Dee will offer 2 sleep sessions (Yoga Nidra) from her popular Sleep is Magic course. Guaranteed to make you sleep like a baby!

Wim Hof Method Workshop

Wim Hof Method workshops (optional)

We're delighted to announce a special guest on this retreat: Ian Kirk, a certified Wim Hof instructor who'll be offering daily breathwork and ice bath immersion for anyone who wishes to explore the power of the Wim Hof Method.

Put yourself in the expert hands of Ian Kirk of Inner Alchemy, the Isle of Man's only certified WHM Instructor, to learn the 3 pillars of the Wim Hof Method: Breathing Technique, Cold Exposure & Commitment. Find out how you can use oxygen and cold exposure to optimise body and mind, and learn about the underlying physiology.

Whether you're looking to improve mental or physical performance, relieve symptoms related to an illness, or are just curious to find out what the Wim Hof Method is all about, a WHM workshop offers something for everyone.

Self-care at its best...

"Dee’s retreats provide the ultimate in relaxation and ‘luxurious me time’. From the moment you arrive you're swept away from your day-to-day life and can fully immerse yourself in yin yoga, scenic walks and fun and friendly conversations around the dinner table. With no pressure to participate in anything if you don’t want to, I always leave Dee’s retreats more grounded and refreshed than when I came. Dee has a way of creating a loving and warm space for everyone where you can literally leave the outside world behind and focus fully just on yourself. Self-care at its best!"

Yet another fabulous experience...

"I've attended a number of retreats organised by Dee now. One was SNOWGA in the French Alps, which was superb, extremely well organised with the most amazing chef  and fabulous accommodation. Another was in the mountains of Granada, Spain and was a combination of Yoga and Lomi Lomi massage. It was a great combination and that style of massage was new to everyone and an amazing experience. The property was gorgeous, with a luxury pool and amazing views, and the chef was excellent and catered to all our needs. Thank you for yet another fabulous experience!"

Highly recommended...

"Having spent a week with Dee on a Spanish Retreat which I thoroughly enjoyed, I can sincerely endorse Dee and her teaching style. Dee slowly and gently guides you through each posture whilst reciting excerpts from beautiful poems and other works. She gives you options for each pose so you can go as gently or as deeply as your body allows. Her classes are for people of all levels from complete beginners to those wishing to deepen their existing practice. Highly recommended."
