Moving into Stillness Retreat

with Adelene Cheong and Lizzie Lasater
20-25 of May, 2018

Are you craving more rest and silence?
Are you ready to set aside some me-time
to refresh, revive, and renew your relationship with yourself?

Join us in magical Malaga Spain to step away from the demands of life for a week of yoga, meditation,
healing, delicious food, laughter, and finding your own rhythm.

Early bird price until February 1st, 2018!


Retreat Rhythm

The mornings are for movement: practicing active asana to open and prepare for stillness.

After a tasty vegetarian lunch you have a few hours to yourself. Go for a walk, explore the area, read a book, take a nap, lie by the pool, play in the garden – anything that feeds your heart.

The evening sessions are devoted to support: practicing Restorative yoga to move toward silence.

Paradoxically, by giving ourselves the gift of deep rest, we return to our lives with more energy for family, work and creativity.

Retreat Schedule

  • 3 sessions a day
  • Instruction in meditation, active asana, and Restorative
  • An afternoon free to explore the area, hike, or lie in the sun
  • 3 healthy meals - lots of organic vegetables!
  • Open space for reading, swimming and naps

Quotes from Students

A truly restful retreat where you can listen within, follow what you need, reset your personal rhythm, and feel deeply rested and nourished on all levels.


I'm a "yoga-beginner" and I learned so much this week from Lizzie and Adelene. The location and food were just amazing! I truly rejuvenated this week!


I had a fantastic time on retreat with Lizzie and Adeline and would definitely go back. It was wonderfully restorative and a joyful experience.


A well organized retreat where you can move from unstructured stillness to structured stillness in a friendly, calming, healthy environment. 

About the Location

This 6 day, 5 night retreat is held at the very special Santillan Center, in Malaga Spain

Set in a secluded rural area, Santillan is an Andalusian paradise. It’s located in the countryside, surrounded by the silence of the mountain and with wonderful sea views.
A farm of 30,000 sq meters, it is located in the peace of the Spanish countryside, and yet is conveniently only 20 minutes from Malaga airport.

The Mediterranean vegetarian meals are based on organic produce grown under the Spanish sun, from the gardens, local farmers, chicken coop, fruit trees and herb garden. 

The family atmosphere, the delicacy of service, gardens, small corners and interior spaces make it an ideal venue for yoga, retreats or explore meditation, deepening silence and stillness space.
