Experience a deep, authentic, and profound immersion of Spanish culture while touring traditional olive farms and wineries, witnessing the birthplace of flamenco, sondering through the corridors of los blancos pueblos, and wandering through the vast greens of los parques naturales. This retreat has been curated for you to experience authentic Spanish culture with great ease and plenty of time to relax, reflect and/or explore on your own. We stay away from landmarks and tourist attractions, our only intention is to delicately explore these places of beauty. As we say in Spain;

“Sin prisas, poco a poco” (without hurry, little by little)

Our team of local guides and yogi’s believe in union of the self and surroundings. Experience a part of Spain untouched by mass tourism. Get lost in the vast dimensions of the Andalusian valleys. Immerse yourself in tradition spanning centuries of historic development. Travel In Harmony.

This retreat is open to all levels of yoga, meditation, travel, and life experiences. We look forward to taking this amazing journey with you.

 Who We Are

  Discover Spain is a spiritual adventure retreat; the collaboration efforts between two former techies, now yoga teachers, who met during a solo backpacking trip through Spain.

Before pursuing her path as a teacher, Diana was once a corporate techie living and breathing all things related to the hustle in the tech city of Seattle. After 5 years in the industry, Diana began to feel lost. Stuck. It was as if she were moving on auto-pilot through life as she slowly lost herself in the rat race. After she was offered a new position in her company, she paused and asked herself, “Is this really what I want out of my life?”

That question opened the doors to a new set of opportunities as she began to explore what she was meant for. In 2017, she made the decision to just jump and set off on a one-way ticket adventure. Her travels took her to Spain, where she wandered in true “Eat, Pray, Love” fashion. She sought to find herself by exploring outside of herself, but after 2 months of wandering, she felt even more lost than ever. While fun, she realized that the travel was simply just another form of distraction. She began to feel jaded from her travels.

While making her way down from Barcelona to Tarifa, Diana met Antonina, a local resident yoga teacher and master trainer from Andalusia. Here, she discovered that Antonina once lived a life in Seattle as a corporate techie and left it behind to pursue her passions in yoga. She took it as a sign from the universe and joined Antonina at a yoga teacher training in Marbella. There, she learned how to contend with the inner turmoil she was running away from, sit in peace with her surroundings, and explore herself.

This retreat is a culmination of yoga, meditation, exploration, and a cultural deep-dive of Andalusia. It contains the heart of all the things the women loved and learned from while wandering and living in Spain.
