ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

Inez has been practicing and teaching Yoga & meditation for 22 years, and has her own Yoga school in Cómpeta. www.competayoga.com.
Inez practiced and taught Ballet for 14 years, and became aware that ballet taught a great physical discipline,but did not create a mental connection for the individual, like Yoga.
Following many years of working as a qualified fitness instructor, Inez eventually found her way to Yoga, and embarked on her Yoga teacher training, which she continues annually.
Inez embraces and enjoys Yoga as the practice is about connecting to yourself, whilst being a physical mediation, enabling positive and strong focus on one’s individual energy. Yoga centres and balances the mind and body, restoring and rehabilitating mental and physicial wellbeing.
Her first teacher training for Yoga was with the Nike Academy. Inez has trained Ashtanga Yoga with David Williams in Holland, Vinyasa and Yin Yoga with Elsie Matthijssens in Belgium and many others. Such is her expertise, she will be teaching at the Congress of Yoga in Marbella in September 2016.
Inez has a unique approach to all her students, providing personal attention and getting to know her students outside of class, to enable her bespoke yoga teaching for you, when in class.

THE VENUE

Finca Los Pinos, a stunning country Lodge, set in the mountains amongst the pine trees has been providing all inclusive retreats and holidays for over 15 years.
Recent upgrade and refurbishment has produced a wonderful 2.5 acre site of traditional Spanish fincas and
Andalusian style log cabins in the midst of the trees, and a beautiful Yoga Garden for outdoor yoga practice all year round.
A few meters away from the Yoga garden is the massage and meditation deck, a wooden deck furnished with
Moroccan rugs and ornaments, set under a large Algarrobo tree, with views to the Mediterranean Sea and the mountains.
The heated outdoor pool offers extra comfort and relaxation for winter and autumn retreats. A wonderfully tranquil setting, in the midst of nature and demonstrating rural Spain at its best.
