I will be returning again in 2021 to  Las Chimeneas, Mairena in las Alpujarra, teaching and relaxing in this wonderful place. The Sunday Times has voted Las Chimeneas as one of the best Hotels in Europe for a summer holiday in the mountain! So come this summer and just see how right they are.


We are hoping that the UK and  Spainish governments will soon give us clear guidance for travel. If you are interested please get in touch:- [email protected] or



Mariena is a quiet, rural communitry, kept ambient with the breeze from the Sierra Nevada. The pace is on the slower side, the food and wine is locally sourced, and the marvellous Emma and David who host us every year make this such a special week.










2020 there were to  be 2 wonderful weeks of Yoga- however not to be!

I hope to be able to be out in glorious restful Las Chimeneas soon.
