Take some time out to re-energise, with the ultimate guilt free holiday. Enjoy 6 days of exercise and relaxation, time to disconnect and reconnect. Our fitness and yoga retreat at Mas De La Serra takes full advantage of the stunning surroundings, with outdoor exercise, trail running, hiking and yoga overlooking the beautiful mountains. Allow the natural environment to carry you through your workouts, offering moments of contemplation for you to switch off.
Mas De La Serra is one of the most remote hotels in Spain, listed in the ‘Top 20 Mountain retreats in Europe’ by The Times and in Conde Naste's Gold List. 'The Masia' lies between Barcelona and Valencia, amidst almond and olive groves, fields of wild flowers and natural waterfalls. The location, known as 'Spanish Tuscany' is a popular holiday desitination for the Spanish, where beautiful wildlife and traditional village life can be enjoyed. The hotel itself is a stylishly refurbished farmhouse set in 60 acres of grounds that include an infinity pool, hot tub and terraces overlooking the valley. Whilst there is a full itinerary there is also plenty of time for you to relax and enjoy all that the Masia and it's surroundings have to offer.
Outdoor exercise in the sunshine
Workouts will all take place on the terraces and grounds of the Mas De La Serra, overlooking the orchards and olive groves. We are surrounded by beautiful trails that snake their way through the hills to the natural springs, which we will make the most of in the afternoons with guided trail running and hiking. All exercise sessions are scaled to your individual ability and we welcome all levels of fitness.
You will receive a 1:1 consultation on your arrival day where we can discuss your goals, what you hope to get from the retreat. A personalised workout plan and nutritional recommendations will help you to take this forward into your daily life when you get home.
Yoga with a view
Our morning yoga practice will be an energising Vinyasa Flow session, designed to get your muscles warm and your body flowing. The evening session will slow you down, with a gentle flow and yin session to connect you back to your breath. All sessions will take place on the terrace overlooking the almond and olive groves, making the most of the beautiful view as your mind settles and your body unwinds. If the weather dictates, yoga will move to the top floor of the Masia where we can practice in the warmth with panoramic views across the mountains.
As a personal trainer as well as a yoga teacher, Nathalie has a real understanding of what your body needs from your yoga practice in order to balance out the workouts. All poses can be modified as required to encourage your body to relax and release safely.
