Following the success of our second Yoga Holiday abroad, the BE Yoga Retreats family invite you to join us again next year in Tarifa, South of Spain for a wonderful week of Sun, Sea, Yoga and of course our delicious home cooked food. 

Our venue is a luxurious villa, complete with indoor and outdoor pool, located just 5 minutes walk from the beach. It sits in a stunning elevated position in the La Pena area of Tarifa, nestled between mountain and sea with a panoramic vista over miles of sandy beaches. The Villa faces the Straits of Gibraltar, looking out east across to Morocco's Rif Mountains and west to the Port of Tangiers. 

Tarifa is a uniquely cosmopolitan town, historically and geographically significant as Mainland Europe's southern most point, where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic.

The Programme:

Spanish inspired meals will be freshly cooked three times a day, as well as a glass of vino or two with dinner! Yoga classes will be led by Elise twice daily in the morning and evening, to energise you for the day ahead and wind down for a relaxing evening. The rest of the day is yours to do as you choose, whether that’s enjoying a massage or indulgent treatment with Elise, relaxing out by the pool, strolling down to the beach or exploring the surrounding countryside. 

At BE Yoga Retreats, we offer you the perfect recipe for relaxation. With our wealth of experience running Yoga Retreats in the UK and abroad, we pride ourselves on excellent hosting and planning so let us take the stress out of holiday organisation. Book your flights and we’ll do the rest!

Here's what people said about our French Yoga Holiday in 2016:

 "Fantastic week in Carcassonne, France! Elise is an amazing teacher and her lessons catered perfectly for the different ability levels amongst the class. Bob, Kathy and Becky were perfect hosts/hostesses and we felt that nothing was ever too much trouble to ask. The food was exceptional and the location fantastic - we are very grateful to Elise and her family for all their hard work as we had an incredible week and came away feeling very relaxed and a lot more flexible!" Celeste, France 2016.
