Camino de Santiago & Yoga Retreat July 2024

Camino & Yoga Retreat

We’re delighted to announce that we have teamed up with Magic Hill – Camino Specialists to bring you a unique, magical and memorable Yoga & Walking Retreat Experience this July 2024. RETREAT IS SOLD OUT. (Please email us if you wish to be included on a late cancellation list.)

The Camino de Santiago, the Way of St James, is a network of ancient pilgrimage routes all of which lead to the tomb of St James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, in the Celtic northwest region of Spain.

The Camino is a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1985.

Starting Fri 5th July on this 8 day, 7 night Yoga Camino Retreat, you will walk the 115km stretch of the Camino (the word Camino means Path or Way) from the town of Sarria all the way to the Cathedral gates in Santiago de Compostela.

It will be 6 days of walking (four longer days of about 20km and 2 shorter ones). All very accessible to non-walkers. You literally have all day to do it!

Your walking days will be beautifully combined with morning and evening yoga practices… along The Way.

And Yoga Satsang (time spent in Circle) with fellow Caminantes  (walkers) will create precious time and space to connect, rest, recover, relax and reflect.

How will it work?

Magic Hill are Camino travel experts. They manage all the Camino logistics aspects of your trip including payment and accommodation – which has been carefully selected..  

Mandala Yoga will look after the yoga and look after you.  We think it’s the perfect collaboration.

This retreat, our first one overseas, will be led by Susan Ni Dhubhlaoich, co-owner of Mandala Yoga – who did the Camino herself 15 years ago in 2009.

Check out this one minute snippet of her first Camino journey. We’ll share some more stories over the next while.

Apart from the morning and evening yoga practices (we’ll meet each day in our ‘Circulo Camino’ and build our Camino ritual), your time is your own.

You will do the walking at your own pace. You have ALL day to walk and this part of Spain is forested and at altitude so the temperatures are very pleasant. .

Walk fast. Walk slow. Move. Meander.  Immerse yourself in the Camino experience.
