Every year we run Family Yoga Retreats which are designed especially for children and their parents. Children have their own special activity sessions as well as being cared for, while parents are on their daily course.
Children under 3 years are very welcome but will require additional childcare - please remember to inform Nic when you make a booking so that can be arranged.
FAMILY YOGA HOLIDAYS WITH CHILDCARE
A chance to BE with your family in nature. Live with the rhythm of sunrise and sunset, eating and relaxing. Being together in the heart of a nature reserve. The Family Yoga Retreat gives time to enjoy with all the space in the world around us.
ACTIVITIES FOR CHILDREN AT OUR YOGA RETREATS
The children will have opportunities to play together and learn, to be artistic both visually and in performance. Often the children make a play or performance at the end of the week.
The activities also include painting, making with clay, baking bread, circus skills, organised games, swimming, music, adventure walks, as well as some fun yoga.
FOOD AT OUR YOGA RETREAT & HOLIDAYS
You will have time to enjoy eating healthy and delicious food, all freshly prepared organic or locally sourced. Meals are children friendly. Home made bread, cakes and desserts that are still yummy but naturally sweetened.
The week gives everyone the chance to eat less sugar and processed food.
DAILY ROUTINE AT OUR YOGA RETREATS
The routine is simple; eating, free time, yoga and activities.
Spend time with your family sleeping in a TP yurt or wooden cabana. Wake to a leisurely breakfast followed by time to be, then yoga and activities. Families are welcome to eat light before the morning yoga and eat the buffet breakfast after the practice.
We have a late lunch in the shade, at the hottest time of the day.
Late afternoon, ideas and activities begin. Walks to the bolsa for a refreshing dip or winding through the mountain forest to a ruined monks hermitage with spectacular views. The walks are numerous and are for all ages from gentle to challenging.
Evening meal at sunset is slow and informal. Seating is varied; large or small family tables, or cushions on matting. The cool mountain air is welcome providing new motivations or a chance to chill.
Time passes effortlessly at El Convento Family Yoga Retreats & Holidays
The retreat environment is relaxed. Personal choice is maintained but we encourage everyone to take the opportunity to quit smoking and alcohol, and reduce sugar coffee and tea for a week (or hopefully longer). Smoking is not possible in the accommodation or communal areas.
A glass of wine can be pleasant and should not be a problem.
The Family Yoga Retreat hopes to give time and space for a family to `be´ together without the noise stress and distraction of computers, TV, mobile phone, clocks, cars and commuting.
Balance is important and we offer 2 outings in the week. A trip to the famous town of Ronda 1 hour away, and a picnic by the spring fed river in the nature park followed by tapas in the local traditional white village.
