New Years Eve Retreat - The Palms Spain


29 DEC 2020 - 3 JAN 2021

Join Jane and Sue for a 5 night retreat of yoga & hiking

This is the perfect place for a break away from all the New Years & Christmas madness, to quieten the mind and recharge your batteries and find deep inspiration for your yoga practise and enjoy the quiet of nature during one of the hikes on the beautiful Spanish mountain tracks. Practice yoga, discover nature,  indulge with a treatment or two, eat healthy food and simply let go for a while.

The Palms Spain offers you all of this and more – lush gardens, fruit trees, salt water pool, two yoga spaces; the shala, set within the fruit and olive trees, and a purpose built hot yoga room.

The bedrooms are beautifully furnished, all en-suite and with a private terrace or shared seating area. There is an outdoor lounge with comfortable sofas and plenty of places to sit quietly and read.

The Palms Spain has a warm welcome with a very relaxed feel and views of the Sierra Mijas Mountains.

Jane and Sue will be offering two yoga classes daily plus a workshop and optional small group technique sessions to fine tune your postures. Classes will include Bikram, Vinyasa Flow, Yin, Nidra and Meditation. We offer a “quiet” New Years Eve Vegan Gala Dinner and 2 spectacular hiking options.

The Teachers

Since then she has been teaching regularly and opened a Bikram studio in Fleet with Jane which they successfully ran for 8 years. Over the last 5 years Sue has also trained in Yin Yoga and Vinyasa Flow. Sue lives permanently in Malaga and manages The Palms Spain retreat with her husband David.

Jane Ashton

After practising many styles of yoga over the years, Jane attended the Bikram teacher training programme in 2009 in Los Angeles and has been teaching regularly since then. Along with Sue she managed Bikram Yoga Fleet for 8 years and during that time has also trained in Yin Yoga, Vinyasa Flow and Yoga Nidra. Jane now teaches classes in the Fleet area as well as running retreats at The Palms Spain.

Perhaps we can tempt your spouse for a yoga class or meditation, and who knows, they might become new born “Yogi”!
