HOLISMOS YOGA HOLIDAYS
We have been organizing yoga vacations and retreats for over 20 years in several countries in
Europe. During this period we have acquired a lot of experience and in 2014 we gave birth to
“Holismos Yoga Holidays”. We love yoga and we enjoy to practice in beautiful natural settings.
With this project we intend to share the passion and love for yoga with others, a chance to
experience with new friends, an interesting, relaxing and enjoyable holiday. With great care we
have chosen for you the best possible locations at the best possible price. We love to share the
beauty of these places with people that likewise, believe in the value of practice, wellness,
relaxation, friendship and evolution.

CERVERA DEL MAESTRE


This time we are changing location, we are moving away from the golden beaches and
turquoise waters of Greece and from the wonder of the Tuscan countryside. We are heading for
a truly peaceful location in the south of Spain. Cervera del Maestre, in the province of Castellòn,
Comunidad Valenciana. We invite you to practice yoga, meditation, chanting, walking, swimming
and sightseeing, in this one week yoga holiday with a complete new flavor.
Cervera del Maestre, is a small traditional village 16 km inland from the coastal town of
Benicarlo; 120 km north of Valencia and 250 km south of Barcelona. The village is nestled
between the Costa del Azahar, the orange blossom coast, and the Maestrazgo mountains. Only
2 hours drive south of Barcelona and 90 minutes north of Valencia. The region is well known for
its abundant agricultural produce, beaches, mountains and historical towns and villages.
Accommodation. Accommodation includes a big traditional villa and a town house. Both have
easy access to the village swimming pool, cafe, bar and shops. The main yoga hall is an easy
five minute walk from both locations.
This is a self catering holiday, food can be prepared in Villa and in the house if participants wish
to do so. Most days we will be traveling to different locations so that mostly we can have enjoy
