Santillan, Malaga, Andalucia, Spain: Yoga Retreat Panoramic Photographs

Santillán, a yoga and wellbeing centre that opened in 2016 high in the hills to the east of Málaga, has many things to recommend it. There are the beautiful views over the Mediterranean, the gorgeous Spanish finca-style accommodation, pretty gardens and a lovely swimming pool.

But what sets it apart from any other centre is the vast, newly built, light-filled shala (yoga hall) with its 190-square metre Great Yoga Wall. Covered in detachable hooks for belts and straps, it has been designed to allow students of all heights and abilities to work on alignment and perfect held poses.
