200 hour Yoga and Meditation
(at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada)
A yoga teacher training is much more than only learning techniques and skills. It is a deeply transformative journey of self-discovery, while you learn to teach an authentic and high quality yoga/meditation class and hold space. To offer the best and most pleasant conditions for this course, we are blessed to be in Hidden Paradise, in Southern Spain. The retreat centre is located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada and gets 300 days of sunshine per year. Besides the traditional teachings and classes, we can enjoy drinking water from the springs, swimming in the private swimming pools, cleansing in the sauna, overlooking the incredible views over the mountains and sea, charging in the sunshine and get inspired by the beauty of the land and the artistic buildings. All this, while immersing yourself in a 1 month training in which we awaken to our higher potential!

"With full devotion to the practice of yoga, Paulina and Floris share all their knowledge and passion they have. Attending their TTC was a wonderful time for deepening my yoga practice, learning about yoga philosophy, anatomy, meditation,...I am very thankful for their teachings!"

Hidden Paradise has many beautiful, artistic buildings made out of natural materials, spread out over 4 hectares of land. During your stay you will be staying in a shared room and have access at any time to the swimming pools, communal areas, many patios and gardens and much more.
Floris and Paulina met in 2011 in Thailand and have been sharing ever since the path of yoga and meditation. They have found that a daily practice and a yogic life style brings deep transformation, peace and light. The last 10 years they have been dedicating themselves to yoga by living in ashrams, yoga communities/schools and giving and taking many courses in meditation and various Hatha yoga styles.
