Every aspect of Granada makes the city perfect for a yoga retreat, from its serene natural landscapes to its rich cultural history.

What to Expect During Your Retreat

Daily Schedule

Most retreat leaders and yoga instructors create their own daily agendas. These plans aren’t very strict, as the main point of these retreats is to get you calm and relaxed. 

The day typically starts with a morning yoga class in nature and a well-balanced diet. If there are any included activities like a hike or massage, it’ll follow soon after. 

If you’d like to know more about the daily schedule of the retreat you’ll be visiting, you can contact the organizers for more info or have a look at the retreat’s Tripaneer listing under the ‘Program’ tab. 

Accommodation

Not all retreats are the same, and the same thing goes for the accommodation included in the different packages.

The accommodation type will always be communicated to you before booking your package.

You can expect anything from a small cabin in the woods (not as scary as it sounds!) to a comfortable traditional guesthouse with multiple rooms. 

Food

You’ll be able to see whether all meals are included when you make your booking but you should always remember to communicate your dietary requirements. 

Retreats in Spain typically follow a yogic diet, which focuses on wholesome and plant-based foods, like fresh fruits and vegetables, that are oozing with essential nutrients.

Remember, to live healthy, you need to eat healthy. 

Activities Beyond the Mat

Exploring Granada isn’t restricted to staying at the retreat and admiring the natural landscape.

Here are some activities that you can take on to make your visit even more worthwhile: 

  • Go hiking (possibly included)
  • Attend workshops (possibly included)
  • Attend meditation sessions (possibly included)
  • Get massages and use spa services (possibly included)
  • Attend flamenco shows
  • Go on food tours
  • Shop at market stalls
  • Explore the city’s architecture with a tour
  • Tour the Alhambra

Choosing the Right Retreat for You

Have you ever attended a yoga retreat and found yourself wishing that you didn’t waste time and money because it just wasn’t for you?

Even if the scenario doesn’t apply to you, there are some factors that you should consider to prevent this from happening in the future.

These include: 

  • Teacher expertise and skill level
  • The size of the group
  • The type of retreat and the type of yoga
  • The philosophy and aim of the retreat
  • The duration of the retreat
  • The location of the retreat
  • The activities and amenities included

How to Get Granada and Best Times to Go

Getting to Granada

The chances are good that the retreat you book will include a shuttle service from the airport to the destination.

However, if you book a retreat that doesn’t offer this service, you can always make use of any other transportation methods, depending on where you’re arriving.

If you’re flying into Malaga, which is the most common destination, I have prepared detailed transport guides on how to get from Malaga airport to Granada here, and also from Malaga city to Granada.

When To Book a Yoga Retreat in Granada

Since most retreats include outdoor yoga classes and hikes, you probably don’t want to be caught up in a rainy or knee-deep-in-snow situation.

So, try to book your retreat in May or June, when the temperatures are just right and all the gorgeous flowers are in bloom.

September and October are also rather nice and perfect for a visit to Granada.  

Conclusion

It’s pretty clear that Granada is the perfect yoga retreat destination.

With the different cultural influences lingering in the air and the breathtaking backdrop of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, you can’t go wrong with a calming retreat between the tall green trees to find yourself.

With the many yoga retreats in this city, you are sure to leave with a feeling of peace and rejuvenation.
