THE LOCATION

WHY Tarifa?

Tarifa town, on the Costa de La Luz,  has been a holiday destination that the Spanish have been visiting for decades. However it is still not all that well known to foreign tourists, compared to the much more populated other Costas.

There are no high rise buildings in Tarifa and it is composed of a quaint old town and the newer part of town through the arched main gate. It is steeped in history. Today it still retains its small fishing village feel.

Over the last few decades the windsurfers, and now kite surfers have discovered Tarifa due to its predictable winds. It has brought a more bohemian feel to the town.

Tarifa is small enough to walk around in 30 minutes or so and is blessed with numerous restaurants and bars to suit every taste. Restaurants are generally low key, serving excellent local tapas and with an emphasis on fresh fish. 

We chose Tarifa, Spain because we thought it would be a central place to meet for the North American, European and Middle Eastern members that make up the Mindful Life Practice community.

THE RETREAT ITINERARY

THE ITINERARY

Our retreat itinerary is designed to help you completely, and totally relax. Each day will start with either a vinyasa flow or sweat style practice led by Matt or Alex. During the day there will be ample time to unwind, relax, spend time by the pool, go a walk along many of the nearby hiking trails, and connect to other guests. Some afternoons there will be workshops and activities led by Matt and Alex. There will be one evening in which we head into Tarifa town for a dinner as a group outside the retreat centre and this meal will not be included. There will be options to add additional tours such as dolphin watching and surfing lessons, at an additional cost.
