Sun Food Yoga
Namaste! SunFoodYoga offers workshops and retreats in the magnificent mountain area of the Alpujarras in Southern Spain and in Holland. Far away from the hectic lifestyle you´re used to, your roles and stories, you can unwind from your daily responsibilities. On our holiday retreats you will find a rejuvenating mix of company & solitude, scenic walks & relaxing by the pool, yoga exercise & mindfulness meditation sessions, pure mountain air & Mediterranean sea breezes, all accompanied by great tasting, detoxifying and alkalizing Gourmet raw food and juices.
Tara has been doing yoga for over 20 years, travelling around the world in a process of self study and personal pilgrimage. Her classes are based on the hatha yoga technique of relaxation (savasana), breathing (pranayama), warm up exercises and postures (asanas). She weaves asana, pranayama and meditation together in a fresh and organic way.
It is through gentle encouragement and hands on teaching that she invites you to tune into the voice and spaciousness within and learn to follow the rhythm of the body, mind and breath, going with it rather than against.
SunFoodYoga retreats are mostly held in the Alpujarras, an all-through-the year green oasis in the otherwise dusty brown-grayish half dessert of Southern Spain, thanks to the amazing irrigation systems created by the Moors many centuries earlier.
In such an inspirational setting SunFoodYoga was created in 2006 out of a vision to create a space where people could unwind from their daily life and tune into mother nature. On our Yoga, Raw & Superfood retreats, we will guide and support you in the process of letting go and through detoxing, the heavenly practices of pranayama, yoga and meditation in reconnecting with your essence, your true self. All accompanied by all kinds of "as-fresh-as-can-be", high vibrational, uncooked food, full of vitalty.
We aim to unlearn the things that keep us in fear and to bring more focus to the positive things we want to manifest for ourselves and our communities, so that we can live in harmony with the planet and each other. You can come on a private or group retreat to align with your inner source of wisdom and find new ways that inspire you and can transform your life.
We offer weekend-, week- and 10 day retreats with the possibility to prolong your stay.

"My stay with you was simply wonderful! I have learnt more, enjoyed more and connected more than I ever anticipated was possible in a few short days. Your yoga teaching is exquisite (and I am a Iyengar teacher), your food delicious and [..] I have felt taken care of and loved, which has been very special and inspirational. Love, Hilde (Ireland)"
