Finca la Maroma mens naked yoga holiday:
I'm delighted to have been asked to lead one of the regular yoga holiday weeks at Finca La Maroma in southern Spain next year. The Finca is where I found my calling to be a yoga teacher, so it's particularly special for me to have this opportunity to return as a teacher and maybe share some of that magic with 12 wonderful men. The week is booked directly through Tom and Mark at the Finca, email them here.
Find your Inner Yogi:
We all have one, the inner yogi. It’s just a case of knowing where to look to find him. I found mine at Finca la Maroma, and on this yoga holiday we’ll explore our relationship with ourselves, with the men around us, and with the world at large, and see if we can find yours too. Suitable for beginners and experienced yogis alike, we’ll look at both the physical side of yoga: flexibility, strength, balance, breathing; as well as the mindful side of yoga: meditation, self-awareness, inner calm.
Yoga is about deepening our understanding of ourselves, the world around us, and our place in that world. Without the physical shield of clothes it's much easier to connect with that sense of self as we can more easily put aside the mental shield we all have in our daily lives. We're all on the same level, so no judgement can be made about who we are by the outward signs we choose to cover ourselves with. Meditating and practising yoga whilst naked as a member of a group of other naked men is a life-affirming and deeply liberating experience.
5 nights accommodation (based on two guests sharing a double studio).
Full and varied programme of daily yoga; meditation, pranayama, asana
Plenty of free time to enjoy the space, tranquillity and freedom offered by Finca la Maroma's beautiful secluded location

Book direct with Tom and Mark at the Finca here.
There will be three sessions each day. All are optional, it's your holiday! We'll start each day with a gentle wake up moving meditation. After breakfast there will be a more engaged session taking us up to lunchtime. The afternoons are free time. Then a more dynamic session before dinner, except on one evening when there will be a quiet meditation after dinner to take us to bed time.
Finca la Maroma is a 300-yr-old farmhouse, with many parts retaining their traditional Andalucian style. Perched on top of a hill with an elevation of 420m there are spectacular views in all directions, especially towards La Maroma, the highest peak in the Sierra Tejeda-Almijara mountain range. Thanks to the absence of fences there is a great feeling of space at Finca La Maroma and one can roam freely for miles through the surrounding olive and almond groves. Our large south facing terrace is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the afternoon sun, while our north facing terraces offer a cool retreat from the summer heat.
Our extensive land is crossed by numerous paths, leading down to a small stream and old stone terracing, with lemon, pomegranate, orange, and carob trees. We have created a few private spots on the estate where the views are particularly beautiful so that you can fully enjoy the peace and tranquility of Finca La Maroma. In our courtyard is an old wine press, still used today for making the local “vino terreno” from grapevines that grow on our hillside, and at the far end of the house is an ancient threshing circle, offering a reminder of the historical roots of the finca.
What to wear/Bring:
It's a clothing optional retreat, but bear in mind it's early in the season so it might not be boiling hot in the evenings.
Insect repellent - the yoga will be outside, so be prepared.
How many students will there be?
The retreat is limited to 12 yogis. I expect demand to be high, so get in early!
