Yogi: Sarah Highfield
Photographer: Note Swaisaenyakorn
Location: Sierra Nevada, Spain
The photo shows yoga teacher Sarah Highfield enjoying some quiet time and open space in the gorgeous Sierra Nevada mountains. One of southern Spain’s natural highlights, it’s a region that attracts lots of tourists — although there’s always plenty of solitude to be found for those seeking a spot of calm contemplation. The London-based yogini, the face behind Yogagise Yoga (yogagise.com), also loves running retreats in the area. “The stunning Sierra Nevada mountains in southern Spain feel like home to me,” she tells OM. “Whenever I’m in the area, I stay at Cortijo Casería del Mercado, an organic farm with its own yoga shala overlooking the valley, where I’ll be hosting a retreat in July 2022.” It’s a truly special place.
