Information for teachers
Villa Isabel is situated in the small town of Altafulla in Catalonia. The villa sits in a cozy park-like garden and is only steps away from the beautiful beaches, rocks and trails, that cross the costal pine forests. They provide an excellent hiding place from the heat of the summer and direct us to many historic sites around. Villa Isabel can be booked for workshops all year round. Our seminary house is especially attractive for teachers who want to combine their yoga-workshop with experiences of wonderful nature. Enjoy spectacular sunrises and sunsets from the beach of Altafulla!
We offer the following package:
A minimum of 6 and a maximum of 20 students are welcome, for yoga or similar activities in the field of fitness, energy-work, healing and spirituality. Villa Isabel is always rented from Sunday to Sunday, for 1 week or longer. Teacher-trainings may also be held at the villa – contact us for special conditions.
Please note, that Villa Isabel is always rented to one group at a time, so every group has its own privacy. We are a smoke-free place (let us know if you need a smokers´ corner in the garden) – and we always support your will to lead an addiction-free life-style.
WIFI is also available.
The top floor of the Villa is a Yoga Practice Room. The room is fully equipped with mats and yoga-props and is available from Sunday 18.00 to Sunday 10.00.
