What’s special about the yoga holidays?
Trujillo has always been an idyllic retreat from the stress and strain of modern life and the place has a magical atmosphere which touches many of those who holiday here. The effects of fresh air in Extremadura, along with the exercise, peace and the vast amounts of home-cooked food are felt immediately.
The yoga course will provide an inspiring Spanish holiday with the chance to learn and socialise as well as the unique opportunity of staying in a magnificent historical Palacio.
The venue for the week is the very special Palacio de Piedras Albas, one of Trujillo villa’s most beautiful 16th century buildings with a stunning portico overlooking the vibrant main square. The Palacio is a private house with beautifully preserved historical features, offering guests the unique opportunity to stay in an exclusive historic Extremadura villa.
The yoga instructor
We are excited to work with an experienced yoga teacher and London-based cranial osteopath who has designed a programme suitable for all levels of experience. You don’t need to be an expert, our holidays are for everyone!
Manuel qualified as a yoga teacher from the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Organization. He became a resident and faculty member of the London ashram where he lived and taught. Inspired by the power of body-work, Manuel went on to train with the British School of Osteopathy in London, qualifying in 1989. Manuel did further yoga-teacher-training in 2000 with Sunra under the tutelage of Barbara Gordon, founder of the first London Sivananda Centre; and Narayani Rabinovitch, co-author of the Sivananda Companion to Yoga, republished as the New Book of Yoga and later became a trainer himself.
Manuel teaches Asana yoga with Cranio-Sacral therapy. Treating each student according to their needs and capabilities, the yoga sessions will vary from person to person. Unwinding deep into asana by combining posture, breathing techniques and awareness, the body and mind are brought into harmony and progressively release tensions. The spacious peaceful gardens at the Palacio make it the perfect place in which to practice, total relaxation among lemon trees, flowers and sunshine. Namaste!
Lunches are served in the perfectly peaceful shaded gardens and dinners on the remarkable Florentine portico overlooking the main square in Trujillo. There's no better spot to relax whilst taking in the wondrous architecture or perhaps just to watch the world go by! Afternoons are spent at leisure, enjoying perfect peace and quiet in the gardens, exploring or relaxing by the lovely swimming pool.
Seeing the area
The trip itself is an adventure, but no Trujillo holiday is complete without tasting the Extremadura culture itself. Guest will be taken on a guided tour of Trujillo expert direction. Experience panoramic views from the castle and stroll down traditional Spanish lanes that wind through the town with secret gardens, jasmine and orange trees glimpsed over high stone walls. Enjoy conquistador palacios with exquisite facades and beautiful interiors and sublime churches endowed with impressive works of art. Sip wine on the open air terraces in the main square, whilst you watch the sun go down and the ancient buildings glow. Unforgettable!
