In 2022, after a far-too-long break due to the pandemic, Sharon & Gary Carter are offering a week of yoga at Almeria in Spain.
Almeria is Spain’s sunniest region and one of the least visited. Its proximity to North Africa means that the area is semi-desert, dry and dramatic, with imposing mountains and dazzling sea. The Almeria yoga venue is on the edge of one of Europe’s most remote and beautiful natural parks, the Cabo de Gata, one of the last unspoiled stretches of Spanish coastline. It’s an amazing landscape of perfect half-moon bays, hidden coves, bizarre volcanic rock formations, and spectacular flora and fauna – a wonderful wild coastline, which you will have seen more times than you think as the backdrop in many films including Indiana Jones, Lawrence of Arabia, and Sergio Leone’s famous spaghetti westerns!
The Almeria yoga venue is in a peaceful, isolated location, but within walking distance of the lovely traditional local village, which can be seen across the valley at the foot of the spectacular mountain backdrop. It is only half an hour from Almeria airport, served by Easyjet, Thomas Cook, Iberia and Ryanair.
Gary Carter, of Natural Bodies, brings together his yoga inspired by Vanda Scaravelli’s teachings, with some myofascial movement anatomy which informs the system to allow efficient movement through the body.
Sharon Carter has a background in Iyengar yoga, with lots of Scaravelli and anatomy influences, focusing on encouraging you to listen to your body and move well through life. Many breathing practices will be explored in Sharon’s sessions, along with a gentle and inspiring yoga practice.
