Ashtanga Yoga & Pranayama in depth with KIA NADDERMIER

July 30 to August 6th 2016

We are so pleased to offer a 3rd session of Kia´s Deepening Course of Ashtanga Yoga & Pranayama in Sierra Nevada this summer! This is an opportunity for our community to book your room before we go public at the end of the week. Please don´t hesitate to contact kia if you have any questions at all. Places are going very quickly so if you´re looking to join us, early booking is highly recommended! Looking forward to sharing this magical experience with you this summer…


For the fourth year, we gather in the magnificent mountains of the Sierra Nevada to deepen our practice and understanding of yoga as a whole – allowing its subtleties to unfold and blossom.

We open our mornings with Ashtanga Yoga – a combination of Mysore Style classes, where you receive individual guidance and adjustments from Kia, and some led classes focused on specific aspects of the practice. Afternoon sessions are dedicated to the philosophy and practice of Pranayama, the ancient yogic breathing techniques. Kia will offer her experience and guidance as we allow space for a daily practice of  Ashtanga Yoga, Pranayama and Kriyas (yogic purification techniques) as well as Sitting and Mantra-recitation.

Alongside the yoga practice there will be other optional activities including day trips to Granada or Almeria beach, vegetarian cookery with local chefs, hiking and, of course, hanging by the pool or enjoying massages from Maura Mulvaney… Kia will be assisted in the Ashtanga classes by her long-time apprentice Hélène Couderc.

Run by the lovely Brittish couple David & Emma Illsey, Las Chimeneas is a truly authentic and unique pearl, located in one of the most beautiful and energetically powerful spots in all of Europe. The accommodation is lovely, with plenty of antiques, books, nooks and crannies. Many rooms have fabulous views across the hills to the distant sea. The food is delicious – organic, vegetarian, locally grown. Yoga classes are held in the outdoor shala which nestles in olive groves, overlooking the mountains.  This is a magical place to retreat, re-charge and give yourself space to deepen your practice.

The course is open to all levels of practitioners with an established Mysore Style self-practice.
