September Yoga Retreat to Murcia, Spain
Here are the details of a yoga retreat I will be teaching at the beautiful Tara Casa in Murcia, Spain...
La Magdalena is a tiny village in Murcia. The village is surrounded by almond groves and mountains; the closest range of mountains, the Sierra Espuna is a 45 minutes drive and is a stunning nature reserve. Twenty five minutes from the village is the port of Mazarron, forty minutes to the famous La Manga strip and the Mar Menor where people go to bathe in the salt lakes, with its many healing benefits. Forty five minutes from the Cathedral City of Murcia, the capital. In this region you will also find some of the best golf courses around. Walking and cycling trails are abundant and protected beaches, here the typical Spanish countryside with its sleepy villages is seemingly behind modern times.
The Retreat Tara Casa is a country house set in the quiet village of La Magdalena in the Murcia countryside. The weather here is said by the ‘World Health’ organisation to be the healthiest climate in the world. In the winter it is like permanent spring. The country house used to be the village school back in the day and would have been the hub of this tiny village. At Tara Casa you can sit among the lemon and orange trees in the Mediterranean garden and listen to the sounds of the wind chimes, the birds and feel the gentle mountain breeze. A place to relax, far away from the daily routine of a busy life, a place to just BE.
Around the full size swimming pool are shaded sitting areas, the poolside bar has a mixture of soft beverages available. Overlooking the swimming pool is the air conditioned studio. The house has its own guest area. There is a guest dining room with tea and coffee making facilities, guest fridge and an adjoining lounge. The rooms are nice and homely and the beds are very comfortable.

I have been a pupil of Darren's for several years and enjoy his classes very much. Darren pays great attention to detail and if you have a particular health problem he goes out of his way to try and solve it for you.
I have been going to Darren's Thursday class since February. I like his passion for deeper knowledge and understanding of how our bodies work and how we can heal ourselves through yoga. I find it very empowering.
Darren's classes are excellent. He really pays attention to detail which is so important in doing the postures correctly. I have achieved so much in the last 2 years of his classes and have really enjoyed them.
