What You'll Experience

This retreat is sold out. To add your name to the wait list, send us a message.

Join Fiji McAlpine at House of Light in Southern Spain this Spring for a 4-night 5-day yoga retreat.  This beautiful retreat center is nestled into the mountains, surrounded by nature.  The Morrocan style architecture of the center is stunning and a perfect venue for this intimate retreat.  There are 2 practices a day, 3 incredible healthy meals, and time to explore, relax poolside, or get body treatments.

The intention of this retreat is to create an opportunity to reconnect with what is real, and who we are. The asana practice offers us a powerful set of tools to reunite the mind with what is real and true. Focusing in on details of sensation, purposeful and precise movement, we become more grounded in the present and remove ourselves from living in the imagined. Only here can we ever be present enough to settle back into our true self.

House of Light is, energetically, such a special place to do personal transformation and body work while feeling close to and connected with nature. The magical property and land, from where you can view both the mountains and ocean, is beautiful and inspiring, as well as incredibly nurturing. Its diverse and distinctive spaces have been intricately and lovingly designed to give individuals the opportunity to connect with nature, open up, drop into vulnerability and connect quickly and deeply with one’s self.

Covid-19 Policy

In Spain, the vaccine is voluntary and the highest court in Andalusia legally declared that it would be unconstitutional to introduce a vaccine passport. On this basis, we will not be asking for proof of vaccination.  

However, a negative test is now generally required for travel so we will require that everyone arrives with a negative test having been taken within 48 hours.
