We would love to welcome you in Cortijo Las Monjas. This old cortijo (farm estate) is situated between Periana and Alfarnatejo in the north-east of Málaga Province. The cortijo is about 600 meters above sea level. Enjoy outstanding views over the mountains and valley below, this lovingly restored country estate is the ideal place for a yoga teacher training course.

Cortijo Las Monjas is a farmhouse. The farm and the outbuildings are over three hundred years old. The cortijo has been completely and sympathetically restored and divided up into really nice apartments and studios for two people to share with a bedroom with two twin beds, a bathroom, fully-equipped kitchen, and dining and living area with wood-burning fireplace, terrace, or porch.

The cortijo has a really nice big pool that is open all year around. There is a beautiful garden with amazing views where will do part of our yoga sessions. The other sessions we will do in the beautiful recently built yoga shala of 100m2.

The former stall has been transformed into this really amazing sacred yoga room with floor heating and high ceiling. Enjoy the beautiful countryside with its extraordinary beauty, and mild climate. Relax in the peaceful atmosphere, where you will be welcomed as one of the family.
