Nieves has been a Yoga practitioner since the early 1980s, later teaching adults, children and teenagers.
The retreat was just what I needed and wished for… relaxing, calming, centering, informative, educational and peaceful.
This four day yoga retreat has been ‘heavenly joy and bliss’. A wonderful programme, Nieves responding to our needs, listening, guiding and sharing her wealth of knowledge. Her understanding and flexibility, wisdom and adaptability made it very speciai.
The incredible scenery, beautiful walking meditations, listening and feeling nature together. The balance of pranayama, meditation, asanas, chanting, yoga nidra, candle lit offerings, lightness, laughter, fun and togetherness… the love and peace.
I have gained confidence enormously and feel more flexible.
Beautiful surroundings, perfect place for a retreat with seven people, loved the small group.
Really homely accommodation and absolutely no fuss from the owner, who was funny, accommodating to all our requests and very generous of spirit.

The retreats will be held in a house in the small village of Valdecabras, 20km north-east of the medieval city of Cuenca and approximately 200km east of Madrid. The AVE, Spain’s high speed train, has frequent services that take you from the capital to Cuenca in 55 minutes.
The house offers simple accommodation in individual and shared rooms and light, sunny spaces for yoga practice. There are also areas for reading and social interaction. The house has central heating should the temperatures at night be unseasonably low.
All meals are vegetarian. Special diets, i.e. vegan, can be catered for, please get in touch with us to discuss your needs.
At around 900m above sea level, temperatures during the autumn months can be low at night. Warm clothing for early mornings and evenings is required.
Valdecabras is the gateway to the Ciudad Encantada (Enchanted City), a geological site in which the erosive forces of weather and the waters of the neaby Júcar river have formed rocks into distinctive and memorable shapes.
The spectacular gorge formed by the Júcar River is home to many species of birds of pray, that can be spotted nesting on its high cliffs. The green waters of the Júcar River make a stunning contrast against the reds, greens and ochres of the rock faces.
The city of Cuenca is one of Spain’s most beautiful medieval cities, declared heritage of humanity by UNESCO. As well as stunning landscapes, the city and its surroundings offer a wealth of cultural activities, from dinosaur digs, Roman remains and medieval castles to the first Gothic cathedral built in Spain and an important gallery of contemporary art.
