Back to Simplicity! är en vecka med yoga, mindfulness övningar, vandringar, vegan food och storslagna vyer över bergen.

Back to Simplicity! lämpar sig för alla nivåer av yogaerfarenhet. Vår yogalärare Marina Scateni  talar engelska men vi blandar också svenska och finska om vartannat. Presentationen nedan är på engelska men ta kontakt om det är något som känns oklart. Marina är praktiskt och juridiskt arrangör för denna resa i samarbete med Ab Kalliopeja och de 10-12 platserna bjuds därför i första hand ut till våra kunder. Välkommen med!

”I am a certified and passionate Yoga Alliance Teacher, a Bio-Natural Techniques Practitioner with specialization in Shiatsu and founder of the Waves Healing Treatment. I also work as Consultant for Nutrition and Detox Programs with the ambitious dream to share my knowledge and experience with anyone wishing to improve their life style turning it into a healthier and more peaceful one, living mindful  and with full awareness of body and mind.

I have spent a lot of time travelling around the world. But a few years ago, Life was finally calling me to move to a place I have always dreamt of, Andalucia, in the south of Spain. Here where I feel at home, I decided to ground for a while and share my knowledge of holistic health with anyone willing to transform their lives into a healthier and more peaceful one.

Here I am teaching Vinyasa Yoga, YinYoga and Ashtanga Yoga as well as Meditation classes. I also operate as Shiatsu practitioner and guide programs of Detox and Cleanse. Along the year I organize Yoga&Wellness Retreats to give people the chance to pause for a week in a regenerative spot with high vibrant energies learning a few tools to bring home for a healthier life style.”

Back to Simplicity! is a unique wellness retreat, a combination of daily yoga and meditation sessions, hikes in a breath-taking setting and a vegan cuisine. It can be a journey to the past,  where we sometimes need to go in order to find the keys to a healthier and more harmonic living. Many of us need to create new patterns to face the demands of today’s society. And we need to find the spirit of our childhood, our joy and our harmony.

Practices of yoga and meditation, Qi Gong and breathing techniques and a staff of experienced professionals will accompany you through this deep process.

The spot is ideal for this process: a modern villa in the old Andalucian style, in a picturesque Andalucian village. With a natural surrounding just perfect for our daily Qi Gong, Yoga and Meditation practices and hikes to villages close by and in the nature park of Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama.

Holistic treatments to release the tensions and a vegan menu of the highest quality will frame this special retreat for 7 days only for you to regenerate and raise the awareness of your true self.

The yoga sessions will be held in English, but Marina also speaks Italian, French and Spanish. You can further contact us in German, Swedish (Scandinavian) and Finnish.

PHOTO-2020-02-12-22-17-14 1Our villa El Cortijo El Niño is located on a slope of Sierra de Almijara, with beautiful views over the valley, on the country road between Acebuchal, the ‘lost village’, and Frigiliana.  The area is full of hiking possibilities and both villages are at walking distance.

Frigiliana has been voted one of the most beautiful villages, in Spain. Acebuchal is known as the lost or forgotten village, as it was abandoned during the Franco regime and was not ‘found’ until the turn of the century. Today it is a small, picturesque white-washed village situated hidden in a remote barranco in Axarquia.

The villa is overlooking a beautiful valley with views stretching all the way to the blue Mediterranean. Today, most of the village slopes are filled with vines, mango, avocado, olive and fig trees, and the local farmers can be seen collecting their harvests in September-October.

The spacious villa has been renovated in a traditional Andalucian style and offers six enchanting double rooms, all with access to a terrace. From the kitchen dinner can be served both in the spacious dining room as well as outside on the terrace. The two-storey villa has many terraces in three different directions and a beautiful pool area with a barbecue kitchen.
