Our Yoga & Wellbeing retreat is the perfect place to relax, refresh and rebalance your life. The program provides the basis for a relaxing and rebalancing week with the freedom to explore the delights of Granada, and have a holiday.

At Samyama Fitness we believe in balance and our Yoga & Wellbeing retreat is the essence of this philosophy. We aim to help you discover the building blocks to make changes to your lifestyle; these building blocks are easy to maintain. They are effective and improve you life. We don’t want you to change your life for 7 days a year, we believe for real wellbeing the changes need to be longer lasting and need to affect every day of your lives. That’s the only way to really improve your quality of life.

Not only do we provide the yoga, healthy eating and relaxation you need to bring some balance back to you life. We also provide the opportunity for you to discover new skills, make new friends and have fun.

That’s why we chose Granada for this retreat. It’s our favourite city in the world and one that offers something for everyone: gastronomy; traditional Spanish culture; Moorish architecture; tapas; Flamenco; museums; and even shopping in the new town.

This retreat is perfect for all levels of yoga and fitness and our unique blend of retreat and holiday make this retreat perfect if you are travelling alone, as a couple or with a group of friends.

Hanging Bridges Walk

Walk through the impressive Los Cahorros Gorge

Read more

The impressive Los Cahorros Gorge is situated 2 kilometers from the sleepy carmenge on Monachil, approximately 10 kilometres from Granada. Until recently, the gorge was only really known by rock climbers as its steep limestone cliffs offer plenty of challenging routes for climbers.

The guided trek with our guide will take you through a particularly beautiful walk alongside the Rio Monachil-Monachil river, offering unbeatable views, waterfalls, rock pools for paddling or swimming, walking alongside acequias (small canals) that date back to Moorish times and, of course, the famous hanging bridges.

The hike takes you through some spectacular Andalucían countryside. The lush valley is home to numerous fruit trees (apple, cherry, pomegranate), wild flowers and herbs (lavender, thyme, rosemary), all interspaced with almond and olive trees.

The Monachil river has its source in La Velata – one of Spain’s highest mountains. The water is clean and cold. Very cold. A kind of cold that is only really welcome on a hot summer’s day.

Despite the hanging bridges appearing daunting at first glance – the longest is 55m long and is suspended a good 15m off the river – the bridges are regularly used and checked for safety. They do move and sway a bit while crossing, but it just adds to the fun.

Book at Carmen

Note: The trek is to a moderate extent physically challenging (mainly due to the heat) and is not recommended for those with vertigo. You will need comfortable and grippy shoes (ideally trainers), a small backpack (provided) and plenty of water.
