Planning your yoga retreat in the Costa del Sol

Why should I go to the Costa del Sol for yoga?

Exercising both mind and body, yoga is an ancient art that has become popular all over the world. You might usually take yoga classes at home or in a studio, but outdoor yoga brings your practice to a whole new level. The natural beauty and mild climate of the Costa del Sol make it a great choice for a yoga retreat. What's more, if you want a full luxury break in the Costa del Sol themed around yoga and wellbeing, you'll find some of Europe's best holistic spas to enjoy.

Where can I practise outdoors?

Want to practise alone on your yoga holiday in the Costa del Sol? Nerja is a good choice. The beaches in this village are generally quieter than those in larger towns, so you'll usually be able to find peace and quiet for your practice, particularly if you get up early. There are also a number of trails that wind to the peaks of surrounding mountains, giving you a stunning backdrop for your practice. If you prefer a more social style of yoga, try Marbella. There's a large wellbeing-focused community here, and people often practise in groups on the beach. Wherever you choose your holiday lettings in the Costa del Sol, you'll never be far from nature.

The best yoga studios in the Costa del Sol

Radiant Yoga Marbella

This studio offers a number of popular styles, including vinyasa flow and hatha yoga in the Costa del Sol. If you're looking for something soothing, it also has sessions of restorative yin yoga. One of the major benefits of Radiant Yoga Marbella is its location, with a terrace offering beautiful mountain views. You can also book in advance for massage, reiki and reflexology sessions, and there's a chillout lounge where you can sit and sip a cup of tea after your yoga class.

Molino del Rey

High in the mountains overlooking Marbella, Molino del Rey feels like another world altogether. It's a wonderful choice if you're looking for all-natural yoga retreats in the Costa del Sol. The indoor yoga hall has underfloor heating, making it comfortable even in winter, and there are also areas for outdoor practice. Most impressive of all is the cave network. A secret door will take you straight from the yoga hall into the caves. This studio has a rotating series of guest teachers offering different styles, as well as courses in acupuncture, meditation and mindfulness.

Yoga Centre Flow

Located in the centre of Málaga city, this studio is one of the best choices for the yogi on a budget. Classes are available in English and Spanish, and you can join for as little as €15. The varied weekly schedule includes power yoga, vinyasa flow, hatha flow and more, and beginners are welcome. The studio also has special energising early morning classes and soothing sunset sessions, which take place beside the sea. There are classes specifically for kids, so if you're bringing the family to the Costa del Sol, everyone can embrace the yogic lifestyle.

Bikram Yoga Spain

Hot yoga isn't everyone's cup of tea, but if you really want to sweat, this is the place for you. This studio in Mijas offers Bikram yoga classes. You'll practise in a room heated to 40°C. If you're brand new to the world of yoga, this may not be the most comfortable starting point. However, hot yoga aficionados swear by it. Although it specialises in Bikram yoga, this studio also has more traditional vinyasa classes, in a studio that doesn't feel like a sauna.

FAQs: Yoga holidays in Costa del Sol

How can I travel with a yoga mat?

You'll need to check in your yoga mat, as it's too big for hand luggage. If you don't already have a special mat bag, it's worth getting one. Not only will they make it easier to transport your mat, but they'll also keep it from getting damaged in transit. Consider picking up a travel mat. These mats still need to be checked in, but they're smaller and lighter than a standard mat, and may even fit inside your suitcase.

Will I need to bring my own mat and equipment?

Most studios will provide equipment for you, including a mat, blocks, strap and any other props you might need. It never hurts to check in advance, though. If you want to follow your own solo practice, then you'll need to bring equipment.

What's the best time of year for a yoga holiday in the Costa del Sol?

The Costa del Sol is ideal for yoga at all times of the year, thanks to its year-round sunshine. In summer, you can expect highs of 30°C, so you might want to practise early in the morning or late in the evening. Winter temperatures are a mild 13°C - 18°C, and the days are usually sunny. This means you can maintain an outdoor practice all year round.
