During this retreat, you will be staying at the High Flyers House, which is the guest house of Space for Yoga's cooperation partners Kevin and Lisa, situated right in the heart of Tarifa’s old town. The beach as well as the numerous cafés, restaurants, and bars are just a breath away.

The medieval old town house and its beautiful rooftop terrace have been recently renovated in a creative Moroccan style with great care and attention to detail, making this comfortable and loving place perfectly round up your experience.

In this retreat, through the daily practice of asana, you will activate and warm up your bodies while working on your balance at the same time. You will also stretch, regenerate, and counterbalance your muscles and relax them deeply. Meditation and breathing practices can further help you to find a better focus, to reduce stress, and to pay attention to what happens now. This way you will be well-prepared, both physically and mentally, for a spectacular day out on the water!

Kitesurfing is currently one of the most upcoming and intensive water sports worldwide. It offers a great opportunity to connect with the wind, the water, and the waves, and to embrace nature moment for moment in all its facets. To learn to kitesurf takes focus, perseverance, and regular exercise. At the same time, it is important to trust the interplay of your body, nature, and the kite and to relax.

In yoga, these features are called abhyasa (regular practice) and vairagya (letting go). You will start the intensive camp on the day of arrival at 05:00 with a little introduction, followed by an evening asana practice. Please note that changes due to weather and general conditions are possible.

One day will be without any yoga sessions, to give you some extra time to rest and for leisure activities. You will finish the retreat on the day of departure with a morning asana practice, followed by a breakfast together.

  • Helene Roselstorfer

    YogaWorks and Yogawerstatt Yoga Alliance RYT 200 (Yoga)

    Yoga is a part of Helene's life, even though she was not aware of this for a pretty long time. Yoga consciously happened for the very first time around the year 2005. It was not love at first sight, but she felt straight away that yoga was good to herself, to her body, and to her mind. Yoga and Helene slowly grew closer and closer as time passed, and since 2010, she has been practicing yoga regularly. Her relationship with yoga intensified in 2013 when she attended her first teacher training and so she gradually started teaching yoga as well as practicing it.

This retreat will take place in Tarifa, Spain. Helena came at the coastal town of Tarifa for the first time in spring 2013 with the aim to learn to kitesurf. Like a boomerang, she has been bouncing back ever since. To her, the magic of Tarifa works like a magnet, and she's certainly not the only person feeling this way, as the mix of its current population, including native tarifeños, a big international community, and Spaniards from all parts of the country shows.

Prior to that, Phoenicians, Romans, Ottomans, and pirates all left their traces in the narrow cobbled streets, hidden squares, and secret corners of Tarifa alike. Where the mystic mountains of Africa meet the flamenco, where the endless beach and Spanish Alegria go under your skin, and where the Strait of Gibraltar moves colorful kites in a play of the Levante and Poniente winds - it's somewhere there that you can experience the magic of Tarifa!
