Head to Hearts – GROUND.


A retreat to (re)connect with (your) nature


How often do you take the time to ground yourself - in your day, in your meetings, in the present moment? Or are you constantly being swept away by the movements of your mind or surroundings? Are you curious about your own needs and desires? Or do you just want to spend an amazing long weekend in the mountains of Spain and (re)connect with (your) nature?

This retreat has been carefully crafted to connect you back to your roots. To root down deeply within yourself so you are able to move more freely throughout life. Joanne and Kim will take you on a beautiful, grounding journey to help you discover and nourish your own roots. They will help you to firmly plant the seed of your true nature so that you can begin blooming into your own unique direction, giving life to your essence.


meet Joanne & Kim

This retreat will be guided by Joanne and Kim who are not only close friends, but also carry a special connection between them that may remind you of the Chinese sign of duality: yin and yang. They will guide you through both of these worlds so that you are able to find the seed of your true nature in your very own roots. They can’t wait to share their love for the more slow and grounding practices with you.

We have designed our GROUND. program in alignment with our Summer Essenza retreat in bella Italia in order to create a year round journey for those who would like to continue to grow and evolve from the space of the heart, from their essence. Having that said, our GROUND. retreat is an unique journey that anyone can join, no matter your starting point.


finca serrato - málaga spain

Finca Serrato is situated on the edge of Montes de Málaga, a vast natural park with an extensive diversity of flora and fauna. The 200 year old finca is surrounded by olive and almond trees, cacti, wild flowers and herbs - the perfect GROUND to enjoy high quality, slow living, and endless peace & nature.

The yoga platform gives spectacular views onto the valley below and the infinity pool feels like a dream where you can dive straight into Malaga’s beautiful essence.

We offer various accommodation options that each embody the authentic southern-Spanish vibes with warm colors and natural materials combined with the modern comfort - an instant vacation feeling.

Check-in: from 12u. Our program starts at 18u.

Check out: before 12u.

We offer complementary pick-ups at fixed times at Málaga airport so please contact us before booking your flight.

Finca Serrato is run by a Dutch couple: Marie-Claire and Sander. Joanne and Marie-Claire met in Rotterdam when they were teaching at the same studio and always stayed in contact when Marie-Claire followed her dream (man ;-)) to Spain to create a finca together. Sander is an amazing vegetarian chef and will accomodate any dietary wishes you may have. Just let us know in advance!

Each day of the retreat includes a vegetarian brunch, a midday snack and a heartwarming dinner. Fresh fruit, water and tea will also be available throughout the day. For those of you who fancy a glass of wine with dinner, we got you covered! After all, life is all about balance, right?!

We are so excited to host our GROUND. retreat at their intimate and small-scale B&B and are looking forward to this special collaboration. We cannot wait to welcome you to enjoy a nice long weekend connecting back to your roots.
