Michele Pernetta



Fierce Grace Retreat with Michele Pernetta

August 10-17th, 2019

Relax in the secluded, boutique Andalusian hotel and estate with far reaching views down to the sea


Located in the peace of the Spanish countryside, and yet conveniently only thirty minutes from the airport and close to beautiful beaches, you can immerse yourself in the silence of nature in the sub-tropical gardens and surrounding hills. It is the perfect setting for yoga and meditation.


A salt-water swimming pool, manicured gardens and terraces with sea views, and one of the most beautiful yoga studios anywhere, equipped with a Yoga Wall, makes this a perfect place to unwind on your yoga holiday.

The Retreat

Fierce Grace  have been running yoga retreats for 18 years and understand the needs of the discerning traveller. This is a holiday, with the best yoga tuition possible. Emphasis on Holiday.

No strange agendas, forced early starts, or enforced vegan diets (we happily cater to vegans and vegetarians as well as gluten free diets however!) Meat, fish and wine are served, as well as a selection of beautiful healthy salads, and local spanish food.

We want you to relax, swim, meet new friends, sleep, enjoy yourself and get fitter than you ever imagined was possible in a week.


Rooms in this luxury boutique hotel have ensuite bathrooms and great views, some with a private balcony. We take over the whole hotel for privacy, quiet and seclusion.


The spectacular yoga studio boasts a Yoga Wall, for the deepest stretches, traction of the spine, hips and neck, and weightless poses to create deep openings and space within the body. You will leave feeling as light as air.


We offer all the Fierce Grace classes, for variety and interest, and a relaxed schedule of approx 9/10am class and 5/6pm class so you can miximise your pool and relaxation time, have a lie in, or get up early for a swim or hike. You can miss a class, or do two a day, this is a no judgement vacation.

We can tailor the programme to the needs of the group. Trips can be arranged to your needs.
