Spain Retreats

Meditation for birth preparation

We invite you to join us in your journey through pregnancy for this long weekend retreat. Our retreats are specifically designed to provide you with tools and techniques to support natural birth. Combining prenatal yoga, pranayama and meditation, birth preparation workshops, and time to connect with your baby, you and your birth partner will feel empowered towards a positive birth experience.

Yoga for birth preparation

We run our Spain retreats from Asturias Yoga Shala. This beautiful shala is set in the mountain forests of Los Picos de Europa, Spain’s largest national park and Europe’s most biodiverse area.
