Retreat at Villa Rosa 3rd to 9th of November 2022

We had lovely days at Villa Rosa. Here is the review from Nic who came all the way from Denmark to participate: Villa Rosa is a pearl . The house is a beautiful spacious , well kept Spanish house located in the region of Alhaurin, surrounded by orange orchards and mountainous views. It facilitates the perfect setting for amongst other things, yoga sessions, drawing, painting, or just chilling. Mia and her team offer so much more than “just” riding and yoga – for me, they opened a world of opportunities and clarity, for which I am truly grateful for. They helped build and provide a programme that suited my needs/wishes. They are warm, friendly, and open-minded, supportive, professional and great fun to be with. I had three different yoga teachers during my stay – each provided something different, each excellent in instructing. Both body and soul were nourished – meals were delicious honest homemade cooking. I had riding lessons with David Rodriguez – a talented instructor who understands how to teach, and has a total understanding of both horse and rider. David has given me the confidence and motivation to continue to ride. There was nothing not to like.

Relax, restore and recharge

## 18th – 23 rd of May##

## 3 rd – 8th of June ##

If you need time to think things over and would like some coaching to find out how to get more out of life, this is the retreat for you. At this lovely 3 spanish cottage “finca” only 20 minutes from Malaga airport you will find Mia Isacsson who has been working with horses and coaching since 1995. Every morning and afternoon / evening there will different body awareness exercises. Mindfulness, core, yoga, pilates, breathing exercises, meditation, hikes etc. at a level that suites your skills and body. Focus is to work with body, mind and spirit to balance your energy and to make you see things more clearly. Three of these classes you will be able to swap for riding lessons if you wish. The riding center is 25 minutes walk from the cottages. There you will find a great, big show jumping areena always full of obstacles. A nice dressage arena as well as horses in all sizes and for riders on all levels. Adolfo is doing the show jumping classes and David the basic riding, easy jumps and dressage classes.
Mia will invite you to a communication session from the ground with the Andalusian horses Tango and Furtivo. They will teach you how to be clear and not waste energy. Even if you never have done anything with horses before this will be a great experience. Horses reflect your personality.
Mia has developed her own style of training with inspiration from different yoga styles and teachers from all over the world. Focus will be on self awareness, strenghten the core and softly stretch the muscles needed. Working with your body – not against it. When we work with ourselves there are always questions coming up, about the past, present and the future. Coaching in a “guiding to find your own insights” way, is always available. It could be like chats at the dinner table or more serious sessions.
The finca has three small cottages and a stunning view towards Malaga bay and mountains. There is a swimming pool and all cottages are equipped with air conditioning for coolness and warmth, free Wifi, a smart TV and comfortable box spring beds with high quality mattresses.
We will eat quite light, healthy and mostly vegetarian. If you desperately need a steak and french fries, there are four nice restaurants within 25 minutes walk.

Age of Aquarius

A better world. A better you.

We are moving towards brighter, better and more loving times. It may seem dark around us but it’s only because we are entering a new era. Everything goes in circles and it is always darkest before it turns.  The winter solstice 2020 leads us into new times. Time to start living in harmony and respect with each other and mother earth. I have the pleasure to announce that I have started a collaboration with an absolutely fantastic yoga place, Palms! In 2021, I will offer developing holidays at Costa del Sol, Spain, with yoga, meditation, lectures, coaching, communication and body language training. For those who want, you can choose riding lessons at the riding school next door.

Boost your immune system

The food we buy in shops and restaurants don’t always contains so much vitamins and minerals. Many vegetables and fruits are grown in bad soil and maybe also sprayed with toxics. If you eat at the big food chains, you can be sure it is not healthy. We are also exposed to a lot of stress, radiation, fear and negativ input from media. Very often we dont have time to relax, breathe and listen to what our body needs.  We do the same movements too many time, use the same muscles, running around stressed and out of balance both physical and psychological. All this together make us vulnerable and an easy target for a virus or a disease of any kind. At Spainriding we pick as much as possible for our dinner in the garden and we also use wild plants. Every season has its specialties.  Oranges, tomatoes, cabbage, sallad, herbs. We eat mostly vegetarian and not to much bread and pasta.  If you want you can eat vegan and totaly free from gluten. A glas of wine is concidered an antioxidant.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is vila-1024x575.jpgPracticing Mindfullness; Paying attention in the present moment, and doing it intentionally and with non-judgment. Awareness of breath, body, feelings, emotions and/or thoughts (in sitting meditation practice or just during daily activities) You can do a walking meditation or just try to be totaly present while eating, chew slowly, really experience the aroma, taste and texture. Guided meditations where you can focus on your chackras or just scan your body is another way to help you stay present, focusing on your body and breath. Trying to observe, notice, be aware and listen without judging or analysing. This will help you to avoid stress,the  breathing will clean your body, not judging makes you think more positiv, take in the surroundings and let nature’s power and the sunshine fill you up. All this together will surely empower your immune system.

Core / yoga training help you keep balance in life. We start with simple breathing exercises and then we find a level that suites you. Respect your limits to not harm the body. Stretching short muscels and make your stomach and core muscles strong. Balance exercises, sun salutations and animal postures. When you get to know the postures you can go in a more meditative state, but enjoy doing it is most important. You should looking forward to the next time…


Psychology of learning and motivation.  The horse will tell you a lot about your personality. It requires skills of how to motivate and make the horse eager to learn to be a good horsetrainer. The horse need to feel you want to do him well. Give him some healing, that will also heal you. Help him using his body in a way that is comfortable and will build him up. When you get the feeling of having this big powerful animal really happy to be with you and try to please you, that will be the greatest boost of all. Be one with the horse, be one with your self, be one with the universe. Everything is energy. Create your self in a new way, create positiv energy, create a world full of love and happiness.
