At CASARA WAY there will be two classes of yoga and a pranayama session from Monday to Thursday. Additional yoga scheduled during the week can be arranged upon request.
Morning Ashtanga Yoga class
Ashtanga classes are great for students who are new to yoga, yoga practitioners who want to learn more about Ashtanga, or anyone looking for a refresher course.
Benefits: Ashtanga practice produces intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is an improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind. This practice stretches the entire body and increase flexibility. It also relaxes the nervous system, improves concentration and provides all over physical and mental well-being. Ashtanga helps alleviate tension, reduce stress and regularize the metabolism, noticeably improving digestion and sleep.
Early evening Yin Yoga class
Yin Yoga is a meditative practice that consists of floor postures (asanas) held passively for extended periods of time (1-5 minutes). The postures target the underlying connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, fascia) of the hips, pelvis and back. The practice of surrender opens the body and helps cultivate the ability to observe and stay with the sensation.
Benefits: This practice calms and balances the mind and body, increases circulation and improves joint mobility and fascial release. It also reduces stress and anxiety, helps injury recovery and reduces the risk of new injuries.
Morning Pranayama class
The ancient Pranayama breathing techniques are an efficient way of purifying the body and stimulate the metabolism. With the basic act of bringing in more oxygen, vitamins and minerals are more easily absorbed. With good exhalation, more toxins are removed from the bloodstream, which revitalizes the organs and clarifies the mind.
Benefits: Pranayama techniques are beneficial in treating a range of stress and emotional related disorders. Pranayama helps relieve the symptoms of asthma. Practising pranayama everyday can assist in developing a steady mind and strong willpower. Numerous studies show that pranayama causes changes in the cardio respiratory system, including lowering blood pressure.
CASARA WAY (Wellness And Yoga) is located in an idyllic enclave with stunning views of the majestic waters of the Atlantic Ocean and of Cape Trafalgar.
Zahora Beach is 3,000 metres long and 40 metres wide. With its fine gold sand, crystal-clear blue waters and 300 days of sunlight per year, the beach is an earthly paradise that seems like a glimpse of heaven.
Besides the wonderful sunsets, the most spectacular aspect of the beach is the huge reef that shows at low tide and the enormous lagoon that appears when the water is shallow. The colourful sunsets and the scenery make for some of the most breathtaking sights in all of southern Spain.
Nearby guests can visit the La Breña y Marismas del Barbate Natural Park, a huge coastal reserve that is a popular area for equestrian, cycling and water sports. The shore is lined by towering cliffs, home to teeming colonies of herring gulls and egrets.
Ancient watchtowers from the 17th and 18th centuries (Torre del Tajo and Torre de Meca) stand on the cliffs overlooking the sea, where local fishermen use the traditional almadraba technique to catch tuna fish.
Thick stands of stone pine provide shade for a stunning variety of Mediterranean wildflowers.
The area is protected because of the precious ecosystem of the rocks and the rich variety of the offshore marine life. This is one of the most ecologically diverse and best-preserved parts of the entire Andalusian coast.
Zahora is also the perfect base for discovering the charms of the province of Cadiz and the whole Costa de la Luz. Located in the centre of the coast of Cadiz, there are nearby destinations of great interest that are barely an hour’s drive away; such as Cadiz itself, Puerto Santa María, Jerez de la Frontera, Tarifa, Vejer, Conil, Zahara de los Atunes, Bolonia and other small towns all over the province.
The sound of the surf, the wind whispering through the leaves of the trees and the scents of wild flowers and herbs will stimulate your senses as soon as you arrive and blow all your cares away.
Our five rural cottages lie nestled between trees just 50 metres from the beach. You will have private access to the Zahora beach along a short track that passes by beautiful horses and the odd chicken and turkey.
This rustic and wild beach does not usually fill up with tourists and is one of the last surviving pieces of secret Spain.
Nutritionally dense, artfully prepared, organic plant-based cuisine fuels the body and delights the senses. Nutrition at CASARA WAY is based on the healing principles of healthy nutrition with organic products from our own garden. We produce many of the vegetables and fruit that we cook and serve. When necessary we buy products from local farmers, all according to the season.
