About The Event
Bienvenida! Join Turavita yoga in Spain, September 8-15, 2021!
Imagine a day that begins with yoga and a wholesome, delicious breakfast, before setting out for a hike near Mario’s apple orchard, where we will press apples and enjoy the fresh juice. On another day you may find yourself immersed in yoga all morning, then relaxing on your own or with a massage before an early evening cooking class in the hotel kitchen with your resident chef, Juan Carlos. Or perhaps a walk into a nearby town for a leisurely lunch?
Are you ready to see the world from the inside out? Join Turavita yoga for a carefully curated, small group travel experience that combines daily yoga practice with local hiking, cooking and other cultural outings. We will spend our 8 days/7 nights at the charming Hotel Rural Fuentes de Lucía, a converted farmhouse nestled into the Urbiñas-La Mesa national park in the heart of Asturias.
We’ve limited this trip to 14 people to ensure the most enjoyable and meaningful group experience possible. Come with a friend or make new ones! We endeavor to make this a trip of a lifetime for each and every one of you.

More about Hotel Fuentes de Lucia
Nestled in the Quiros Calley, Hotel Fuentes de Lucia is surrounded by dramatic peaks, deep gorges and crystal clear rivers, ancient forests, a paradise for anyone who likes the great outdoors.
An intricate system of marked footpaths leads you from one small village to the next; up and over mountain passes; and through river valleys. Our guides are able to take our guests through our magnificent landscape via well-trodden pathways visiting remote villages where life unchanged, continues much as it always has.
Close by is the Senda del Oso, a 30-kilometer trail from Bárzana de Quirós to Trubia, which runs through these valleys following the track of an old railway line once used for transporting coal and iron ore to the sea. Taking a leisurely stroll along the Senda del Oso is a wonderful way for individuals, couples or families to spend the day whether by bike or on foot.
Hotel Fuentes de Lucia is located 5 kilometers from the small lake of Valdemurio, where you can paddle on a kayak, spend the afternoon on the shores with a fishing pole or take a quick dip on a sunny fall day. In the next valley over, walk through the mystical canyon of Las Xanas to Pedrobeyo for a hearty lunch of Fabada, a typical Asturian white bean and chorizo stew.
Fuentes de Lucia has 8 – bedrooms, all with full bathrooms, a balcony and/or terrace.
There are three buildings on the site. A main house is where the dining room, living room and self-serve bar are located. There is a massage room as well. There is a separate building where the yoga room is located. The third building is the hotel.
