Summary

This week is a time to relax and rejuvenate at this gorgeous eco-retreat center set amongst Spanish gardens with panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea and the neighboring mountain range. We will have daily yoga practice and meditation in the gorgeous studio, open and full of light, with unique architectural design.

You can spend your days exploring the expansive gardens with exotic trees and plants, an olive grove, vibrant fruit orchard, extensive herb and vegetable garden, and charming sculptures. Take the time to view the many birds, tortoises, and other wildlife that thrive in this secluded oasis and swim in the beautiful solar heated pool. We will enjoy and be nourished with the delicious organic and sustainably sourced food, the majority of which is grown in the gardens on site! Indulge in the creative and nourishing Spanish wines and meals for all dietary requirements. Then rest in your luxurious bedroom, refreshed to begin another day.

Teachers

KELLY CARTER
I began practicing yoga in 2006. It didn’t take long until I started to see the impact the practice was making in my life. I am passionate about my practice and have the desire to share yoga with the world. I am a certified Baptiste yoga teacher and 500hr certified Dharma Yoga teacher.

Building the Shakti community with my sister Lauren has been one of my greatest accomplishments. This community has come together through a shared love of yoga and continues to grow and expand outside the studio walls. I am inspired by the leaders and teachers at Shakti Power Yoga and leaders from the Baptiste community who motivate me to continue to move forward and expand my boundaries.

Leading workshops, teacher training, and destination retreats bring me so much joy, and I am grateful to have the opportunity to co-lead retreats with my closest friends and family. I’m so grateful for the gift of yoga which makes me a better wife, mother, friend and human.

I am also 500hr and 800hr Dharma Yoga teacher.

I Co-founded Shakti Power Yoga in Nashville in 2012 with my sister, Kelly Carter. It has been the biggest blessing in my life and biggest teacher. I am grateful for our community and the space we have created together. Teaching, leading Teacher training, International retreats, and building community has brought me purpose and so much joy to my life. I am grateful I can be a service to others by sharing my passion and always continue to be a student on and off my mat. In my teaching and practice, my intention is to create a powerful connection with myself and others and to be open to what is right in front of me in each momen
