8 Days Family Yoga and Meditation Retreat, Spain

8 Days Family Yoga and Meditation Retreat, Spain

A chance for family members to breathe, connect and have fun together. 

We start and end each day together with a short meditation and sharing circle, which provides a chance to reconnect with one another, to set any intentions and to offer thanks. Meal times are also spent together and are a wonderful opportunity to share stores about your activities in the day so far.

Around these communal times, our wonderful children’s team will care for the younger members of the family, leading sessions in yoga, nature exploring, singing, art and storytelling. All of our children’s team are experienced in working with children in ways that allow each child to shine as an individual while practicing working together as a team. As well as being yoga teachers, many of the team have backgrounds in children’s social work, neuro-linguistics, outdoor activity leading, and special needs education, so you can be sure your children are in safe hands.

For the adults, we offer a daily yoga and meditation session, and then plenty of free time for relaxation or a taster session – this is the perfect time and place to explore something new, so why not book in for a poetry workshop, a painting session or a private yoga class? One to one sessions are available, or book in with your partner for a shared experience that provides a new and joyful way of engaging together. Massage therapies will also be available; these and the taster sessions can be arranged at the time of booking – though we’ll keep a few spots free just in case you want to go back for more!

Every other day, we’ll arrange a families’ yoga session – these are great fun and suited to all ages and abilities. Together you’ll learn simple routines, games and partner poses that the whole family can use together or individually. Stretch together, get creative with animals and shapes and enjoy calm time to bond and relax with your children. We’ll also look at some simple family massage techniques in these sessions – a beautiful practice to help bond and reconnect.  

The Riverheart book collection has a range of novels, modern fiction, children’s books, and teen literature, as well as books on spirituality from Buddhism to shamanism, natural healing, and creative wellbeing. Take advantage of a glass of organic wine or beer or a pot of fresh tea, and lounge by the pool to soak up the sun and some time to yourself.

Meditation spaces are dotted along the riverside and with hammocks, swinging chairs, poolside loungers, and shady trees you’ll have plenty of time to carve out your very own piece of Riverheart’s peace and quiet.

Meet The Instructors

Robbie Cully and Samm Short

Robbie Cully

Robbie’s first experience of Yoga came when he worked with an NGO in central India that taught & nourished underprivileged children through Yogic techniques. The compassion, tranquillity, maturity & integrity that shone through each individual child were unlike anything he had ever observed before. Yoga is a tool to create a better world and this is where his passion lies. As a teacher of classical Hatha Yoga, he focuses on Body, Breath, and Mind alignment and also teaches Yoga and Mindfulness to adolescents & children.

Samm Short

Samm Short is one of Riverheart's creators and owners and also a fellow painter and long time student of Ian's. Fearless love and courageous expression are the two guiding principles that she tries to work from each day and that Riverheart has been founded on. For her, the practices of writing, painting, yoga, and meditation all seek to discover and express the same truth that love and joy are at the root of all things.
