The Yoga We Teach
It is great to see you here and I hope to be brining you along for this awesome retreat in Spain. Will and I practice and teach yoga as a tool and a path to inner peace and radiating joy. We are trained in Akhanda Yoga, a Hatha yoga practice, that brings in all aspects of yoga: contemplation, philosophy, anatomy, mindfulness, meditation, kriya, pranayama and asana, the physical postures. This practice is for everybody and suits all levels. Straight from the street? Or advanced practitioner? This is for you!. Furthermore we bring into the classes an abundance of joy, and draw experience from a wide range of skills and courses, as well as wisdom collected on our travels around the world. Our classes are designed to give you strength and confident as well as softness and flexibility. The classes are calming and challenging, restorative and energising. They are therapeutic by nature.
We look forward to share this with you.
If you have any questions you are always welcome to contact us.

We are excited to have Lee Watson cooking exclusively for us and doing cooking demonstrations. During the demonstrations, Lee will be showing us how to cook a range of healthy Mediterranean plant-based dishes with loads of treats along the way.
Meals will range from Moroccan to Middle Eastern, all the way through Turkey, Italy, Greece and of course, Spain. Lee ensures that even if you don’t eat a plant-based diet, you will not be disappointed in the slightest. This is diverse food for everyone to enjoy!
You’ll learn a range of creative kitchen skills for a healthier, delicious approach to cooking at home. You will get a full recipe booklet to take home and Lee will ensure you have all the knowledge to give the recipes a try. We’ll cover creative summer salads, BBQ, homemade plant-based cheese and milk, Buddha bowls, sushi, local tapas and paella, smoothies and breakfast ideas, plus preparing a fully raw food feast and lots of ideas for desserts.
On Friday we’ll enjoy a three-course meal in a local restaurant with a stunning location overlooking the bay. The best location in Murcia for sunset. This is a restaurant that Lee helped to build, who make great plant-based meals. The menu will be designed especially for our group, by Lee and their chef.
The retreat is fully plant-based, and if this is something new, we believe it is a light, nutritious and compassionate way of eating. Find inspiration to bring home, get support to make changes or just enjoy and you are sure to feel the benefits.
The villa is intelligently designed and eco-friendly, keeping warm in the winter and cool in the summer, providing comfort year-round. Air conditioning is available throughout and there is a log burning stove.
The highlight of the villa for us is the large open plan living area, with kitchen and dining space. This is perfect for cooking demonstations and joyful moments. Enjoy the view of the beach while reading your books, writing or hanging out with good company and meaningful conversations.
The villa is located 10 metres from the beach in a quiet, residential village, close to restaurants, cafes and bars. Other facilities include an outdoor solar heated shower and purified water on tap.
The rooms are comfortable with a homely vibe. There are a variety of different room types to suit all. Email us for more information.
This place is amazing with a essence of community and living to share.
Our daily yoga and meditation classes will take place outside on the terrace and in the garden. Wake up with soothing yoga poses under open sky in the gentle morning air providing us with a fresh boost of energy and a glow to our skin.

Murcia is a small and stunning region, mainly agricultural, in the South of Spain. Our villa is located on the Costa Calida, which is a jewel of the Spanish coast. The scenery is beautiful, with mountains falling away into the deep blue Mediterranean Ocean. The region is sparsely populated with lovely countryside and traditional villages. This is the real taste of Spain and is known as the garden of Spain for good reason. The local produce, ranging from almonds, to lemons, olives and excellent vegetables is delicious. We offer a rare opportunity to practice yoga on a beachside location, exploring and enjoying this peaceful corner of Europe.
This holiday is a true and a rare treasure to find. Beach House Kitchen and Complete Unity Yoga have come together to give you A Taste of Bliss.

“Peace and Parsnips”
Will’s devotion and dedication to the Yoga practice vibrates through his voice. His presence in every moment creates feelings of openness, care and comfort. One year of intense sadhana with his yoga master in India has helped him to reach high levels of joy, clarity, knowledge and wisdom. This we can now all receive and ta..
Why the fusion:
Because we believe in a sustainability that provides a way of life that:
-Enhances your wellbeing,
-Finds your inner joy and
-Expands your awareness so
that you can be the best of you
and inspire others
to do the same.
Food is more than carbohydrates, proteins and vitamins. Food is everything you bring into your being. Whether it is what you find in your fridge or scribble in your journal, these are all inputs that get to define who you are and who you will become. We must learn to be the master of our health and happiness. This is why we have created the holiday for you providing:
-Physical Health and Harmony:
With Lee Watson's most amazing cooking our bodies are able to enjoy, digest and purify. Clean food offers a clean body and ensures maximum access to the energy stored in our food.
With yoga and meditation we are able to reach corners of our personality that often seem beyond arm's reach. These practices offer so many benefits and opportunities to let go, heal and empower yourself.
-Community and Connection to Nature:
Social gatherings around the dining table, excursions and absorption into the local nature and landscape will restore and strengthen your relationship to your fellow human beings and your lifelong host: Earth.
Diving / Snorkelling
Costa Calida is home to two marine reserves offering ideal conditions for divers of all levels. If you're interested in going diving/snorkling during your stay with us, we'd be happy to send you details of a highly recommended English-speaking dive school, so that you can book directly with them in advance. Please email us for more details.
