Yoga and Climbing Retreat Spain

Sun 12th – 19th January 2025, El Chorro

Climbing and Yoga holiday

Bring a little Spanish warmth to the start of 2025…join Rebecca and Paul on this full week Yoga and Climbing retreat in El Chorro, Spain. If you prefer just a Yoga holiday, great! We have an option to join without the climbing, allowing you the freedom to do what you want through the day.

Surrounded by peaceful nature in the El Chorro mountains get inspired to climb, to develop a daily Yoga practice and to eat delicious healthy food prepared with passion. A special week to relax in a spacious mountain villa with some of the best climbing crags in Spain just 15 mins walk away. When not climbing, there’s Yoga, great walks like the Camino Del Ray and, the cherry on the cake, our private pool for optional daily cold plunge to boost the nervous system, reduce inflammation and feel amazing!


We invite you along to this beautiful scenic area of the world, where we have organised spacious accommodation and will provide you with great vegetarian food, daily Yoga classes with the rising sun and lots of great climbing.


The climbing and Yoga holiday was created when we decided to join our talents, Rebecca has been running Yoga retreats and Paul teaching climbing for a combined 40 years. Putting climbing and Yoga together gives you the exhilaration and adventure in the El Chorro mountains, plus a calm, grounding energy to create balance for body and mind. As seasoned climbers and familiar with the El Chorro area, we decided this was a great spot for our climbing and Yoga retreat.

The Yoga with Rebecca

Rebecca has a love for Yoga and Ayurveda, so the food and Yoga classes on this retreat will be infused with that positive energy. Rebecca has over 20 years teaching experience with weekly Hatha, Vinyasa, Kundalini, Yin and Pilates classes.

There will be a daily morning class pre-breakfast, additional Yoga/Meditation classes may be possible. Please bring your own Yoga mat or let us know if you need to borrow one.

Yoga classes on this Yoga and climbing retreat will be complimentary to climbing; gently dynamic, building strength, flexibility and a focused mind required to prepare you for the day’s activities. When weather allows, Yoga will be outside. More about Rebecca HERE

The Climbing with Paul

Paul has guided in the mountains for over 20 years. He is a qualified member of AMI (Association of Mountaineering Instructors) which trains and assess instructors to the highest level found in the UK.

Paul leads courses covering a wide range from hill walking, scrambling, rock climbing and canoeing – through to navigation and advanced rope skills courses. The outdoors is his job but most importantly his passion, which comes across in his sessions. Paul’s teaching approach is patient, very safe, encouraging and calm. Expect to learn lots and have a great day out!

On this Yoga and Climbing Retreat there will be 4 full and 1 half day’s guided climbing, the remaining time free for you to explore other activities. We will start on easy achievable rock climbs and work from there, developing confidence and technique. With a mixed ability group, we find something for everyone. More about Rock n Ridge – Here
