Yoga from Within

Hatha yoga & meditation retreat

4 days gentle, nature-based practice
September 19 - 24, 2018
Time in stillness and quiet observation of our inner and outer surroundings


Following a special and delightful first official gathering in September 2017 at Cortijo Verde in Spain, we propose another 4 day yoga retreat at the same time next year, offering a gentle, nature-based practice of hatha yoga, inspired by Heinz Grill.

Two long yoga sessions a day and delicious vegetarian/ vegan food cooked by Chez Sjaan help to create a truly healthy and inspiring environment!

We aim to end our retreat by midday on Monday, leaving time for a final yoga session and breakfast before setting off.

Do bring a towel, your favourite tea and comfortable clothing, including walking shoes for the hillside and visits to the lake. Yoga mats provided.

NB: There is room for 11 participants in total so please do reserve your place as soon as you can to avoid disappointment!
Taught by Paul Harris and Caroline Pick


Including lodgings, food and all yoga classes is £400.

Please pay a deposit of £100 to secure your place with full payment due no later than March 1st, 2018.


The retreat will begin on the evening of Sept 19th and will end noon on September 24th. 


We suggest you fly into Malaga and arrange flights if possible to get the 18h30 bus direct to Loja where you will be picked up at 20h00 in time for supper!

Arriving by Car:
A92-to Loja from Malaga, get off at Loja East. Drop down through town over bridge and follow road up hill, 17km to Ventorros de San Jose. Pass straight through village-church on right, the cemetery set back on left. A little further along on right hand side you will see a blue painted stone. Take that turning and follow track to end...(from church to entrance of Cortijo Verde is probably little more than 500m). You will be greeted by the donkeys!

Arriving by Bus:
Please check for details of buses to Malaga from Loja.
NB: there is one at 11h40 which arrives Malaga Central at 12.45, followed by shuttle bus to airport!
