This is a fun, and heart opening retreat that will help you to deepen your personal practice, and tap into your happiness, raise your energy and leave you feeling less stressed. Many of us have lost contact with the essence of ourselves and connection to nature, our natural state of being, which comes from a good balanced lifestyle. This retreat encourages you to practice various forms of self-care, where you can appreciate your life just the way it is and have space to invite a new flow of energy.

You are invited to join an intimate group of like-minded individuals, willing to dive heart first into life-changing self-discovery practices such as yoga, meditation, breathwork, healings, holistic massages and group activities to help lift your spirit and boost your confidence.

Early July is a beautiful month in Andalucía, green and fresh with average daytime temperatures up in the high twenties (C). There will be two classes a day. Mornings tend to be energising practices with meditation and yoga. Early evenings will be an exploration of restorative and relaxing practices. During the day you will be free to walk, take a massage, horse ride, enjoy the blooming spring flowers or just lounge around in the sun. The caves, cool waters and cool breezes around Molino always keep the studio nice and fresh. It’s like natural air conditioning.

This retreat is for anyone at any level. It is particularly suitable for you if you are ready for a digital detox or going through a life-change and seeking support. Our intention is that you leave feeling, nourished, happy, healthy and spirited.

Molino del Rey is a luxury yoga retreat and part of a lovely, traditional Spanish hamlet. It is set in a beautiful green valley of orange orchards in the famous nature reserve of “Sierra de las Nieves”. At the entrance of our hamlet is a spring from which the purest of waters flow through the centre.

It is approximately 60-minutes from Malaga airport and the popular tourist resorts of the Costa del Sol.

The retreat has been lovingly converted by the owners and features include a cool salt treated, mountain water pool and sculpted caves. Being an old water mill, Molino has beautiful Moorish water streams flowing down through the centre of the property, creating a refreshing, magical charm to the place. You can even drink the water direct from the stream!

Molino del Rey Retreat has everything you need for a fulfilling experience during your stay. There is a state of the art Yoga Hall with amazing acoustic, a relaxing cave pool area, a variety of lovely terraces and unique caves to help focus your mind, body and spirit.


Accommodation is very comfortable. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms and have balconies, air-conditioning, ceiling fans, tea making facilities, safe deposit boxes, hair-dryers, and alarm clocks. Each bedroom is uniquely and beautifully painted and designed.


Food is of great importance here on a retreat. Our local cooks, Simone and Gloria, will be preparing, creative brunches and sumptuous dinners. Most of the vegetables are home-grown in our organic vegetable garden. Meals are served buffet style so everyone can choose what they like from the varied dishes on offer each mealtime. If you have any particular dietary requirements, do let us know upon booking and we will do our best to accommodate.

Messages from past retreaters

Having met Sharron whilst she was managing a 5* Spa Retreat in Bali, I was quite sure that it would be a beautiful yoga retreat, but I have to say it was absolutely amazing! Having yoga in the morning not too early and in the evening was the perfect time for me. She showed us several yoga styles and also techniques of breath so every yoga session was different. I loved this, as it was very inspirational. Breath of Bliss was a bit challenging for me as I have never experienced that kind of energy running through my body but having her with me I felt so supported and guided. Her angel wisdom is just gorgeous and I can so recommend her. The provided vegetarian food was delicious, the location absolutely stunning and the people who joint so sweet and fun to be around them.” – Eva, Austria

“Sharron did an amazing job with her first European yoga retreat. I have been on several yoga retreats before (Brian Kest, Timo Wahl…etc) and I have to say this was the best I have been to. All was so easy going, gentle, kind…just perfect (also as a couples holiday). The group she attracted were brilliant…all lovely people from around the globe. The location and hosts super nice and you don’t feel the need at all to leave this beautiful spot, although Ronda and Sierra de las Nieves is worth a visit ? We are so looking forward to the next retreat she is doing and will definitely book us in again.” – Micha, Switzerland

“My husband and I were lucky enough to experience Sharron’s first retreat for The Happylicious Way. Neither of us had experienced Yoga before so had no idea what to expect. We ended up having the most wonderful experience. We loved the Yoga, Sharron’s teachings and aura of peace, the food, the magical retreat, and the people we met. We left the retreat feeling totally refreshed and ready to face the real World when we returned to the UK with extra energy and renewed enthusiasm. A massive ‘Thank You’ to Sharron and her team for one of the best holidays we have ever had. We have already booked onto next year’s retreat and are looking forward to it.” – Rachael & Keith, UK

“More than just a yoga retreat, this was such a wonderful, inspiring, heart opening experience! We got to experience not just your ‘normal’ yoga but Sharron also brought us through Kundalini yoga, moving meditations and breathwork. I came back feeling like I could conquer the world and bursting with positivity which I’m trying to maintain in everyday life. The people on the retreat were just gorgeous happy souls and I couldn’t have enjoyed more the conversations over (AMAZING!) meals and endless cups of tea! Beautiful location ran by beautiful people :)”. – Kate, Ireland

“There was a good balance of yoga an doing your own thing, whether that meant chilling by the pool or exploring the local area. Sharron provided tasters of various styles of yoga which was great as there was something for everyone. The Breath of Bliss session was incredible – we all came out of it shiny and brand new! This was a very chilled out retreat which allowed participants plenty of time to adjust and recalibrate in their own time. There was no pressure to attend any of the sessions, which I liked (although I went to all of them!). I couldn’t have met nicer people – from all walks of life! Would definitely go again for an M.O.T!” – Dez, St Tropez France
