Learn Spanish, Pilates & Yoga Retreat in Murcia, Spain 28th October – 4th November

Costacalida Spanish invites you to this yoga retreat with Spanish learning and Pilates classes in Murcia, Spain. This holiday will be held in spring and autumn when the weather can be glorious. Your holiday will include yoga practices in a beautiful studio overlooking the sea, relaxed informal morning Spanish lessons, Pilates classes, historical visits, guided excursions so you can learn about the area, wine tasting, cycle rides, activities and much more. Of course all activities are optional. If you prefer to relax in the apartment or have time at the beach…the choice is yours. Join Costacalida Spanish for a holiday in the beautiful Bay of Mazarrón for a totally bespoke holiday and a chance to explore this undiscovered unspoiled corner of Spain.

We understand that you/your partner/a friend may not want to participate in the Spanish lessons, Pilates classes, Yoga and/or the cultural activities. We will make sure that you have a fabulous time too. The area is steeped in history from prehistoric times to Phoenician, Roman and with many places of interest and excavated sites. A visit to Cartagena is a must to see the roman amphitheatre and excavations and the town of Mazarron to see the stunning mining features and old mining industry.

Mazarron itself and the coastal areas are separated by Sierra de las Moreras, Sierra de las Herrerias and Sierra del Algorrabo being the ideal area for the practice of outdoor activities such as walking, hiking, cycling or climbing. If this is your thing, we can arrange this for you. Evenings will be spent eating in different local Spanish restaurants. Single travellers, solo travellers, couples and small groups are all welcome on our holidays.

Teachers

Organiser and pilates teacher
Your Organiser Frances Brown (Fran) is a UK based business woman who has an apartment in the beautiful Bay of Mazarron. She is so passionate about the area and is excited to be organising these bespoke holidays. She has over 25 years’ experience in all aspects of exercise, fitness, health and wellbeing. After suffering back problems herself, she discovered the wonderful benefits that Pilates can offer in improving, relieving and preventing back pain. She has also undergone a hip replacement which has greatly increased her knowledge and understanding of post­operative rehabilitation and how Pilates plays such an important part in the recovery process. She has been teaching Pilates for over 20 years and is also a qualified Clinical Personal Fitness Trainer. She specialises in Pilates, remedial Pilates, post operative and post injury rehabilitation, postural problems, back and joint pain, functional fitness, nutrition and weight management. She now specialises in her own brand of Pilates ‘The Fran Brown Pilates Method’.

Spanish Teacher
Vivien Stuart moved to Madrid in 1982 after graduating in Spanish from Edinburgh University and spent almost 10 years teaching English. She worked for a language school until in 1985 she decided to go freelance. Induyco (part of the Corte Ingles group) and Heineken were two of her most important clients. In 1991 she was offered a job with Heineken as P.A. to the Financial Director. In 2002 she moved with her husband to to Mazarrón. After almost 35 years of working and living in Spain, Spanish has become her first language. Having studied not only Spanish but French and German too, she understands the problems involved in learning a language and the difficulties British people have learning Spanish.
