Meet Your Hosts!
Katie Sampayo & Sara Martin Blanco
Katie and Sara met in 2016 on the magical island of Bali. Katie, originally from Baltimore, MD USA, was taking her first solo trip to complete her 200 hour yoga teacher training. Sara, originally from Marbella, Spain, was one of the head yoga trainers. After spending almost 4 emotional weeks together (a yoga training truly pushes you to your limits), it was apparent they had a connection and a great amount of respect for each other. They left the training knowing intuitively that one day they would meet again and do something great together. 

Almost 3 years later Katie and Sara crossed paths again in Spain, Sara's home and one of Katie's most loved countries. Upon meeting again, they knew almost instantly that they wanted to work together to share their passions for health, wellness, and travel with the world. 

With a shared mission to help others live authentic, inspiring lives where their minds, bodies, and relationships thrive, they curated this Roam Free retreat together. 

Katie is a certified personal trainer, 200 Hour Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Instructor, bestselling author of the gluten-free cookbook, Eat To Thrive: The Anti-Diet Cookbook, former T.V. show host of Eat Right, Live Well on channel 47 ABC, and soon to be 5-time international retreat leader. Katie currently travels the world full-time hosting her Fitness and Adventure retreats in locations including Costa Rica, Peru, Spain, USA, and Bali.

Sara’s passion for yoga and its many facets is infinite and has studied under many inspiring international teachers such as Meghan Currie, Chris Chavez, John Friend, Desi Springer, Tina Nance, and Elena Brower. She is a 500 Hour Hatha and Vinyasa Instructor, and is also fully certified in Yin Yoga and iRest Yoga Nidra. Her professional journey began in the field of media production, marketing and management eventually led her to work in the art world as the director of a contemporary art gallery in Spain. Having traveled extensively since her youth she now lives out her passion for culture and yoga by teaching internationally. 
The Activities
Caminito Del Rey Hike
Malaga Day Trip
Ronda Day Trip with Winery Tour & Tasting
Daily Fitness & Yoga Classes
Exploring Marbella and Learning How to Salsa
Cooking Class Using Fresh Local Ingredients
Each day we will have at least one group activity that will be ACTIVE! After all, this is a fitness retreat. However this isn't the kind of retreat where you'll be working out in a boring gym. 

Our goal is for you to be outside in nature fully experiencing everything Spain has to offer. So our activities are designed to do just that!

We start the week off with an ocean-side stroll in Marbella that will introduce you to your new home for the next week. We will visit the chic Puerto Banus as well as experience the Andalusian charm of the historic quarter of Marbella, filled with whitewashed buildings, remnants of a ninth-century Arab fortress, and fragrant orange trees. All of this topped with a traditional Spanish lunch will leave you ready for a much deserved ‘siesta’!

The next day we will hike the famous Caminito Del Rey, otherwise known as "The Worlds Most Dangerous Hike".  Here we will hike over vertiginous walkways and hanging bridges, with licensed professionals and safety gear, to discover hidden landscapes and some of the most spectacular views of Spain. This is something you want to check off your bucket list! 

After you will be free to enjoy the day in Malaga, one of our favorite cultural cities in southern Spain. Not to be missed are the breathtaking views from the Morrish citadel “The Alcazaba”, the remnants of a Roman theatre, the Picasso Museum, and Malaga’s iconic Cathedral dating back to the Renaissance period.

We will also visit the breathtaking city of Ronda, which is set dramatically above a deep gorge offering an endless view over lush rivers and valleys. Ronda has recently become world renown for its wines. We will spend the morning visiting a local bodega (winery) to savor and learn how these delicious Spanish wines are made. We will enjoy a delicious lunch in town, followed by free time to explore this magical city.

Some of our other activities include vinyasa and yin (restorative) style yoga sessions, fun bootcamp workouts next to the pool, learning how to dance salsa, and cooking classes featuring traditional Spanish cuisine. 

In your free time grab a book or cocktail by the pool, treat yourself to a massage with one of our specialized therapists, or enjoy a spa day at the amazing hammam (Turkish bath) located in town. Rent a bike and explore the rest of Marbella and its surroundings. Relax on the beach front of the chic and famous Puente Romano, or explore some of Andalusia’s picturesque cities such as Sevilla, Granada, and Tarifa.

Don't you want to be here NOW?!
Enjoy Delicious Detoxifying Plant-Based Food!
Let's be real, it's all about the FOOD!
At this retreat you can expect amazing, fresh, healthy, and detoxifying plant-based meals that will leave you feeling energized and refreshed! All meals are gluten-free, dairy-free, and will be mostly vegetarian/vegan with the exception of fresh local spanish meats and seafood that will be offered during certain meals.

Our daily detoxifying brunches and dinners will be crafted by La Pachamama, an amazing husband and wife duo who specialize in mostly vegan cuisine using 100% organic, seasonal ingredients. Most of their ingredients come from their own organic garden, packing each dish with unbelievable flavor, freshness, and nutrients.

 You can expect to eat like a QUEEN or KING by enjoying dishes such as granola bowls and smoothies made with fresh local fruits and homemade nut butters, raw caramel banoffee pie, tahini & za’atar roasted cauliflower with hazelnuts, tuscan butterbean soup with basil pesto, beetroot & baharat dip with raw carrot crackers, and so much more! 

Is your mouth watering yet?!

All meals will be served family-style so you can eat as little, or as much, as your heart desires. ❤️

Reviews From Our Past Retreats
Check Out Our Last Retreat in Costa Rica! 
“I love the variety of activities, and the food is amazing and delicious! I wish I could stay here forever!”

— Ladina, Switzerland
“I had an awesome time at Katie's retreat in Costa Rica! The accommodations were top-notch, and the people that came were even better.

I did this retreat originally to get my health back on track, and this retreat accomplished that. However I had no clue how much fun I was going to have, and how many awesome new friends I was going to leave with.

From the awesome workout sessions on the beach, to going out as a group at night (I love to dance so I was super stoked about this) I had a great time, I'm now healthier than ever, and I will 100% be at Katie's next retreat in Peru!”

— Arlo, U.S.A
“The retreat in Costa Rica was amazing at all levels. The environment where we stayed was spectacular, very upscale. It was definitely beyond my expectations. We were surrounded by breathtaking nature. It was the perfect place; charming and peaceful.

 I really enjoyed the healthy food and the cooking class.  Some recipes were from Katie's cookbook, and they were delicious! 

Yoga and bootcamp was held next to the infinity pool or at the beach. Katie was an amazing instructor teaching us correct form and how to breathe properly. She adapted her teaching method to anyone, had good vibes at every teaching moment, and took us all to the next level. 

I had the chance to share this unforgettable time with an amazing group of people. I would recommend 45000000% to go to Katie’s next retreat! I will go to any sports, yoga, or retreats she organizes if my agenda allows me.”

— Virginie, France 
“Sara is a fantastic Yoga teacher with a huge heart! She is extraordinarily skilled & very kind. If anyone has the chance to go to Sara's Yoga classes, please do, I would definitely recommend it! I'm glad I met her."

— Leja, Latvia
“Having practiced yoga for 20 years myself, I find that Sara is one of the best teachers I have met. She conveys a calmness that makes her classes very mindful. She also has a wide knowledge of anatomy and meditation she humbly transmits. 
Her classes balances mind, body and spirit and for me it is a pleasure join her on my mat."

— Kirsten , Spain

How to Get to Marbella
Book your flight to the Malaga airport by October 11th (airport code AGP).

If you’re coming from the U.S. we highly reccomend flying out of a major airport hub such as New York, Boston, or Atlanta on THURSDAY October 10th to arrive to the retreat on time and to get the cheapest flights. If you’re not seeing any good flight options into Malaga, book into MADRID and then book a separate connecting flight into MALAGA. This may be the fastest and cheapest option to get into Malaga by Friday.

We’ve found that is a great website for searching for flights at the best prices. However we always reccomend booking directly through the airlines website for the best travel protection possible.

Once you have booked your flight, please post your flight itinerary in our private Facebook group, or email us the info directly. 

Check-in time at Casa La Concha is 2:00pm on October 11th, unless specified otherwise.


We are happy to help you organize a private transfer from the airport to Casa La Concha. There is an additional cost of 60€ per transfer. This saves you approx. 20 euros from standard taxi fare and you are welcome to share the cost with other retreat members.

*We can group people together that are arriving with similar flight times so you can share the cost of the transfer if you wish.

If you decide to hire a private transfer, once you arrive in Malaga you will be greeted at the airport terminal by your friendly driver with a Casa La Concha sign, and in just a short 50 minute drive you will arrive at the house.

There are direct buses from Malaga airpot to Marbella Central bus station for only 8 euros. They run every hour and take 50 minutes to arrive in Marbella.

The bus stop is located directly outside the ground floor of the airport. You can purchase tickets at the AVANZA ticket window here.

Please click here for departure times from Malaga airport.

From Marbella Central Bus Station you can then take a short 15 minute taxi ride or Uber to Casa La Concha. 

*Please note that Uber is not a fully reliable and operational service in Spain yet.
Weather in Marbella
Although Marbella enjoys its own micro-climate, as we transition into fall the weather in October can be a mixture between heavenly warm, sunny days and some overcast days with possible rain showers, but this should not be a concern for your holiday. 

Also please remember we are by the sea, so we reccomend brining extra layers especially for the cooler mornings and evenings and in case of rain.

The temperature in October consists of an average high between 22°C (72°F) and 26°C (78°F).
