This restorative retreat in the beautiful Andalucia hills in Southern Spain is a unique opportunity to spend time in a truly delightful location. Take a look at www.molinodelrey.com for many more photos and venue information. Here is information on the 5 days;

'Total relaxation. The retreat itself is beautiful-so imaginitively designed that it's almost miraculous! I loved the very creative & delicious veggie food, lots of yoga & mindfulness, nice like-minded people, and I enjoyed our trips out for horse riding in the mountains and to see the amazing old town of Rhonda too. The menu of gorgeous massages was the icing on the cake!' - M. Warrick Aug 2015
‘Difficult to say what I enjoyed the most as there was so much. The yoga sessions were superb, I really enjoyed the mindfulness sessions including, of course the session in the pool. The structure of the day was great - time together but also time to do whatever you wished. Loved the nooks and crannies, the time to just relax quietly. Food superb, as was the company’ – Anonymous 2015.
'I felt restored & refreshed; helpful personal reflection time' - A. Painter 2015.
'I didn't have any complicated reasons for coming-just some time out and time to relax-and I came back suitably refreshed and very relaxed' - J. Gaunt Aug 2015
'The venue – beautiful terraces with lots of quiet space & places, pool, outstanding veg food, yoga respecting my own pace; daily themes. I appreciated how well organised it was and the list of what to bring' - Anne 2015
'My takeaways? The peacefulness, the memories, the stories, the little tips and thoughts. A recharge before work, before winter. Now back in the real world, I often think back to our sessions and reflect' - Anonymous, Wales.

Jess - creativity & reflexology
Jess has a BA in Textile Design from Falmouth University, where even as a student, she sold designs to Rug & Co, supplier to John Lewis. Jess did embroidery and embellishment for a top London based bridal designer, then worked for an iconic designer in Sydney before spending time travelling extensively in Asia and Australasia, keeping an evocative painted travel journal wherever she went.
Jess is passionate about helping others and has been developing her skills and experience ahead of an MA in Arts Therapy. Her approach is relaxed and informal. She is naturally creative, a strong listener with an ability to make everyone feel at ease so they can express themselves in a fun and supportive environment.
Having just completed reflexology training, Jess is offering treatments at a much reduced rate during this retreat.
