‘The Sacred Unfolding – Moving to Your Own Rhythm’

Come join me on this beautiful 7 day explorative and healing yogic journey, to connect to your true authentic self, to release deep rooted emotional and physical tension, injury and trauma by tuning into your own organic and primal rhythm.

This unique retreat creates a sacred space of divine love in which you can step back from life’s challenges, pause, reflect, listen to your innate wisdom and flow with your true internal rhythm. Give yourself this time to expand heart, body and mind and to experience the life you truly desire.

About Finca Avedin

Nestled in the mountains just outside the pretty village of Gaucin and just over an hour from Malaga Airport, Finca Avedin is an oasis of calm and a unbeatable destination for a yoga retreat.

Finca Avedin is an exceptional stylish and very private country home, wrapped around a central court yard. with a beautiful infinity pool that appears to float above the trees and stunning Moorish influenced rooms with exquisite furnishings.

This 7- bedroom villa is spacious, yet cosy, luxurious yet comfortable with the most incredible energy.

A short walk from the charming village of Gaucin, Finca Avedin is set within its own 15 acre estate of cork forest, woodland and olive and almond groves. Its an incredibly peaceful setting that gives you a feeling of calm as soon as you arrive. On the slopes of the Serrania de Ronda in the Andalucian mountains, it offers fantastic opportunities for walking, cycling and birdwatching.

The Host/Teacher

Lara is a truly nurturing and attentive yoga teacher with a deep self practice and over 20 years experience. This shines through in her teaching as she has a strong intuition on what is going on for each individual. She cares deeply about her students, inspiring them to develop and evolve both on and off the mat.

Her style is gently powerful with special attention on the breath allowing for growth in ones own internal awareness and awakening the spine.

Her yoga sessions will allow you to work profoundly from the inside out on individual areas of resistance, injury, deep emotional blockages and alignment with softness and grace.

Lara is hosting this retreat and is available for any you need prior and during the retreat experience.

Location, Things to Do and Getting There

Gaucin is a charming Andalusian pueblo blanco (white village) perched on the crest of the Sierra del Hacho. At 626 metres above sea level, it boasts sensational views towards the Mediterranean Sea, the Rock of Gibraltar and across to the mountains of Morocco. The village has several excellent restaurants serving international cuisine as well as local dishes and taps. There is also a choice of lively bars and bodegas.

Surrounded by olive and almond groves, the countryside around the village is ideal for walkers, birdwatchers and nature lovers, Gaucin is on the major migratory route from Europe to Africa so many rare species can be seen including eagles, vultures, falcons, buzzards, finches and bee-eaters. Guided walks are available for those who prefer to explore on foot and there are riding stables near the village. The coast/beach is about 30 minutes from the property and could be a day trip mid week on the yoga free afternoon off.


You can fly to Gibraltar which is 50 minutes away or Malaga which is 1 hr 20 mins. Easy Jet, British Airways, Ryan Air as just a few of the airlines that fly there. Malaga has more options on flights. Lara will organise your transfers from the airport which will be an additional cost or you can choose to rent a car for the week.

Suggested flight times will be posted here nearer the date of the retreat.
