EL DUENDE: Yoga Retreat News

Yoga Retreat News


Newsletter from El Duende

Hi everyone, Namasté! 

Hoping this finds you all happy, healthy and enjoying the summer whatever the climate may be ! 


This Newsletter from El Duende is coming to you as I have a couple of dates to share with you. 

On 23rd-25th September,Marc Woolford is holding a weekend workshop here at El Duende 

Mark s teachings are inspired by the work of Vanda Scaravelli . 

I recently spent a week on Retreat with Mark and found it to be indeed an extremely inspirational week. 

I connected with Marks style of teaching and came away from the retreat with some very useful tools for going within and practicing yoga from a deep place inside myself. 

I recommend his work highly , especially to any students wanting to deepen their practice 


The price for the weekend is 180€ for anyone who wants to stay here and have their meals


For any local students who don't want accommodation, the price is 100€ for Marcs classes and 25€ a day for food. 


We ask a deposit of 50€ to secure your place as we only have space for 10 students.


To book , contact Marc at


I hope to see you ! 



Also…I am teaching a class in Torre del Mar , right by the beach at a really quiet location , on a shaded terrace…the birds and the waves are our only distractions ! …It is on Friday mornings at 9.30 

Contact me if you are interested in attending . Its a very gentle, meditative class and folks of all levels are welcome .


The Wednesday morning class at El Duende is now at 9.30am and is followed at 11.30 by a Yoga Nidra session …all welcome !


For anyone wishing a private session, just contact me and it can be arranged either in your home or in my yoga studio 


Well, thats it for now, 

Wishing you …

               good luck with all your endeavors….

                   remember tho´that we are human BEINGS not human DOINGS ! 

                         so take this life easy if you possibly can 

      om shanti 


           love Ruth

yoga workshop news

Hi there everybody, 

Just want to share with you some news from El Duende !

We had a very lovely Yoga Workshop here on Saturday (2nd May)

The weather was yogic..( nothing in excess!), neither hot nor cold.....just nice for walking and stopping for a half hour meditation overlooking a beautiful valley and the grey sierra rising skyward behind it ...

...and  home for a couple of hours of pranayama and asana practice ...

Then it was time for the food ! Everyone brought a delicious dish (or two ! ) and we had a sattvic feast ! 

After that and a half hours rest,(some went to sleep !), we did some chakra work with mantra chanting and finally a chakra visualisation Yoga Nidra session ...

Theres never enough time sadly for everything next time we are going to have the option to  do two days and allow the yogic energy to seep into every cell ...!

You can stay here  overnight , or if you want to go home , then thats fine too..

I will post some dates soon for the next workshops....and Ill add some photo´s

so watch this space ! 

love and joy to you all from a very beautful, verdant and abundant Andalucia 



One of the yoga students just sent me this  email:

 Thank you, Ruth, for a lovely day. Pure magic
