At least three yoga classes each day taught by Chris Leuenberger and Stella Shakerchi, both 500hr RYT Yoga Alliance.
This is a retreat for all levels, beginners are welcome, experienced yogis will be able to take advantage of the well-appointed studio with yoga wall, props and restorative equipment. Chris and I are happy to offer some extra instruction with these.
Santillan has a salt water pool, two studios and yoga wall, paddle tennis, spa and overlooks the sea.
Temperatures in May are perfect. It is near Seville, Alhambra, Granada and Málaga.
Please join us on this yoga intensive retreat, relaxed and focused, this will be an incredible journey. Stroll to the sea by day, maybe join in with the mantras after dinner and feel amazing as spring turns to summer in the wonderful Andalusian hills.

Hello I’m Stella, 500hr RYT Vinyasa and Level 1 Kundalini Teacher KYTA. Experienced Aerial Yoga teacher and CPD provider.
I found yoga in Bermuda 17 years ago and developed my practice around the world. After overcoming ovarian cancer and surprised to be alive I trained for my first teaching certificates in South India. Influential teachers to whom I am hugely grateful are in Bermuda: Michael Watson and at Tribe: Sequoia Henning, Scarlett Dee and Mark Ansari
Also thanks to Simon Low and Jeff Phenix of TriYoga and John Scott for invaluable advanced teaching advice on anatomy and safety.
My Aerial Yoga training was with Aerial Steps based in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Constantly researching aspects of anatomy and safe yoga practice, I attend Masterclass teacher training every year. The latest was in Kundalini Yoga with Maya Fiennes in London. The International School of Kundalini Yoga i-SKY was where I gained my level 1 Kundalini Yoga Teaching Certificate with Guru Dharam, Benjahmin Steele, Darryl O’keeffe, Livtar Kaur, Livtar Singh and others. I am now studying for Level 2.
I specialise in Pranayama, Meditation techniques, Astanga based Vinyasa, Aerial, and Kundalini Yoga. My style of teaching is joyful and my daily Sadhana practice is a blessing for which I will always be grateful.
