The yoga is open to all levels.

There will also be daily guided morning meditation and one specialist workshop. 

EAT | Each day you will be served a homemade, delicious and nutritious breakfast, lunch and dinner, all lovingly made from locally sourced ingredients.  Including homemade nut butters, nut mylks, granola, cold pressed juices, fresh and revitalising superfood suppers and raw vegan deserts.  All food will be plant based with vegan options

RETREAT | There will be lots of opportunity to explore the island and its many beaches, ranging from secluded coves, to golden coastlines offering water sports such as SUP and windsurfing.  Make use of the the facilities that Villa Aura has to offer; a large ozone filtered pool, gym, table tennis, sauna, or simply sit back and relax in a hammock or sun lounger. We also have some magical experiences planned for you including a private boat trip and snorkelling around the surrounding islands, a Byzantine walk through an ancient Greek village and a natural mineral hair and body mask at a clay beach.

Testimonial from a Wild & Rayburn luxury yoga retreat

‘The yoga retreat on Paros has been one of my all time favourite holidays. The quality of both the yoga and the food was excellent! I have improved my yoga practice, my flexibility, and increased my general wellbeing after the retreat. The location is stunning with gorgeous rooms, infinity pool, and not to mention the beautiful view. Mim and Katarina put so much effort and love into every single yoga session and every single meal. You can tell they are truly passionate about what they do. Everything was very well organised and ran so smoothly; just as I was beginning to feel peckish after brunch, a freshly made juice and healthy snack appeared from the kitchen. The atmosphere was relaxed, positive and friendly - I feel like I've made 14 new friends."

Akasha's Barcelona Yoga & Hike retreat with Wild & Rayburn

  • Valldaura Estate

I'm very excited to be teaming up with Akasha to bring you a Wild & Rayburn yoga and food experience to the beautiful Valldaura estate in Collserola National Park, near Barcelona, Spain. Set here is the stunning villa where we will stay for the duration of the retreat, whilst on the surrounding estate there are several sustainability projects you can learn more about during your visit. As an example you could learn how to make your own Spirulina at home!

'We've made the retreat a long weekend, because we know, as much as our health is important, it is also difficult to find the time to dedicate to it, and sometimes a week-long holiday just isn't an option. This peaceful setting offers an opportunity to reconnect with nature whether it be exploring the area on hikes or trail runs, volunteering in the estate's sustainability projects, or simply admiring the breath taking views. Using this alongside your daily yoga and meditation practice, we hope that during your 4 days at the villa, we can reboot your health regime, and give you a renewed attitude to your yogic lifestyle that you can take home. During the day there will be a silent meditation room available at all times to find some zen, or if you would like a dose of culture, it's only a short journey to Barcelona City Centre. We will also provide a healthy, nourishing full board menu prepared and served with love by Wild & Rayburn.'  Akasha.
