Tara Casa and Murcia
The Retreat Tara Casa is a country house set in the quiet village of La Magdalena in the Murcia countryside. The weather here is said by the ‘World Health’ organisation to be the healthiest climate in the world. In the winter it is like permanent spring. The country house used to be the village school back in the day and would have been the hub of this tiny village. At Tara Casa you can sit among the lemon and orange trees in the Mediterranean garden and listen to the sounds of the wind chimes, the birds and feel the gentle mountain breeze. A place to relax, far away from the daily routine of a busy life, a place to just BE. The village is rural and has no immediate local restaurants or amenities, so you can either hire a car or we can arrange transport with your hosts for visiting local places of interest, or eating out.
More information on the venue - The Tara Casa website.

There are flights with Ryan Air and Easy Jet from most of the UK to Murcia or Alicante . Those of us travelling from the South West can get a flight from Bristol to Murcia International which is the nearest to Tara Casa and not expensive for the transfer. The more of us that can travel together the cheaper it will be for the transfer at the other end. When you know you want to come , let me know and I can suggest good arrival times for this .

FOOD AND SPECIAL DIETS.
Breafast brunches are provided each day plus vegetarian dinners . We eat out locally one evening which is not included. I don't think special diets can particularly be catered for - it would be best to ask Tara Casa direct if you need this.
YOGA TEACHING - LEVELS AND EXPERIENCE.
As an experienced teacher I can accommodate most levels of experience from beginners through to teachers. If you are a complete beginner try at least some classes before you come on a course like this. If you have significant health issues or body limitations then please talk to me; most things can be worked with, but not everything.
WALKS and Activities
There are some local walks and and trips out locally to Cartagena or the beach are possible. Any extra transport costs involved in these are not included.
Yoga mat would be wise if possible ( I don't know if they have any as yet ) .
