Magic unleashed Retreat

Yoga & Ayurveda

29th August - 4th September 2020, Andalusia, Spain

You are here to remember and realise your magic.

Join me for this 6 night deep dive into the magic of Yoga and Ayurveda, in this absolutely stunning venue in Andalusia, Spain, where we will be journeying through practises, through rest, through true connection, all designed to reignite your connection to yourself and to something much bigger. It all starts and ends with you.

Yoga & Ayurveda

I am so excited to bring to you this offering to teach you more about these two sciences; Yoga & Ayurveda. Yoga meaning union and Ayurveda meaning ‘Science of Life’, the two are sister sciences and are intrinsically linked and are both pointing us towards the same common goal; to be able to alleviate the mind, harness our own inner magic and live an extraordinary life.

I have so much passion for sharing this ancient wisdom, and as a teacher I feel like I am such a sapling myself (even after 11 years) with tapping into these resources, but can hands down say that starting on this path of learning and evolving has singlehandedly changed my life for the better and continues to do so, even more so as I align myself more and more to my own purpose in getting others to connect into their own innate wisdom too.

This truly is a beautifully transformational space, where you will be held, guided, supported and nourished with everything that my wonderful team and I can offer.

I am so excited to welcome you here.

 

About Our Home

Our home for the retreat is a private luxury and absolutely jaw droppingly beautiful converted Spanish farm house, nestled into the mountains of Andalucía. We will spend the days practising yoga over looking the mountains, lounge by the pool, spend long evenings connecting and sharing stories, eat the most delicious meals - literally all of the magic, every single day.

We have the most wonderful in house chef, Sophie Gordon bringing along her plant based wizardry. We will be spoilt with breakfast, lunch, afternoon snacks and beautiful dinners, all created following Ayurvedic principles and offering you and your digestion some delicious nourishment. All dietary requirements can be catered for so please be sure to state on your booking form.

Now, unlike some yoga retreats I am not strict on ‘no wine’. The villa does operate an honesty bar with some delicious local wines, and you will be more than welcome to enjoy a glass should you choose to. Of course what I would offer is that a retreat is a beautiful opportunity to give your nervous system a rest and reboot and the focus will be heavily on that, but it will be there should you want to enjoy a glass and watch the sun go down. We do have a day out planned, followed by an evening meal at the local restaurant (with the most amazing views and Spanish village vibes), to be followed by a fun (and optional) pool party - all of these are just as fun on cacao and high yoga vibes, but you can maybe leave your wine night for this one.


There will be plenty of time on this retreat for free time to really be able to find some space for yourself, some peace, some clarity, and also to really be able to enjoy the incredible location of our private villa. Each day will start with the beautiful practise of silence for the first hour or so (honestly one of the most treasured parts) so that you can wake up slowly, enjoy a warm tea and watch the sunrise completely immersed in your own space, before our morning practise, and each day will end with a divine wind down practise and accompanying meditation.

If you are a complete yoga newbie, please do not be put off, just pop me a message and we can work out a little plan for you to follow before you come along on the retreat. You do not have to be an advanced practitioner to join in, but at least a little experience is preferable so that you can really get the most out of the classes.


Rooms and Pricing

As with most retreats, a lot of people will come along on their own, and with the nature of this style of retreat, usually you will leave having made friends for life. In fact, in all of my experience with working on retreats and now hosting my own, I’ve never not known people to leave with new soul sisters, and I know of people regularly meeting up afterwards. Rooms will be served out on a first come first served basis.

You can either reserve your space with a £250 deposit (please note that this is non refundable), or pay for your space in full; please see the options below. You can pay online via the link below, or via bank transfer - pop me an email at hello@emmabarfield.com to discuss.

Options:

Private Luxury Master Suite with Ensuite - £1295pp

Luxury Twin Room with Ensuite - £1095pp

Belle Tent (Twin) with ensuite - £895pp

There is an early bird discount of 10% if paying in full by February 2020. Just add the code ‘SPAIN2020’ at checkout to apply the discount. If you would like to secure the space with the deposit first and pay the rest at a later date, I will invoice you the remaining amount with the 10% added later on.

Included in your stay:

  • 2 x yoga classes with Emma per full day (morning dynamic & evening yin / moon)

• Exclusive access of the entire property and grounds

Whats not included:

• Flights / airport transfers (we will however be creating a retreat Facebook group so that those of you coming can gather before and look to share transport costs - the road down to the villa is very small so we advise arranging the transport and letting us know timings so that we can arrange meeting you in Gaucin and showing you to our home for the retreat).

• Personal travel insurance

• Massages (these will be available to purchase on retreat for €65)

  • Lunch / meal out in the village on excursion day

  • Group excursion (there will be an option for us to go either to Ronda or to a beach and it will be decided nearer the time with those of you coming along which one as a group we will prefer. This will be organised around 3 months in advance and will simply be the costs of the travel to get us there. You can decide to join, or to stay at home at the villa).

Here is a little of what was shared from guests at the last retreat here.

"Emma is an incredibly genuine person. Her yoga is so beautiful, so much that it’s lifted my confidence again. She could make any retreat location special with just her being there!”

"Absolutely must go and share an amazing experience”

"Just go. It was everything I could have asked for and more”

"An experience filled with positivity, and genuine beautiful people.”

"Positive, Wonderful, Emotional”

Logistics

Arrival on the 29th August at 4pm for a settle in and snacks before the opening circle and practise. Departure is on the 4th September at 10:00am our final breakfast together. Gaucin is truly the most wonderful white village set around 1.5 hours from Malaga airport - you really do feel like you’ve just stumbled off of the beaten track, and once you find our villa you are instantly immersed in the most wonderful energy - this truly is a find and I’m so excited to be going back already.

Lots of Love, Emma xoxo
