Relax, reconnect, and renew. One week of Yoga, organic veggie food surrounded by incredible vistas.

The retreat centre is nestled serenely in a large open valley in the foothills of the Sierra de Grazelema. This majestic mountain range can be seen looming large on the horizon behind it. A striking part of the natural beauty of the property is the breathtaking vista extending in all directions: rolling hills, fields of sunflowers, and lakes. The sense of vastness and expansiveness is very uplifting.

Suryalila has three Yoga halls. Ganesha Yoga Shala has a gorgeous wooden ceiling as well as a wooden floor and is filled with light from windows on both walls as well as a skylight. It also has a lovely balcony with benches for enjoying the expansive views.

The Om Dome has been dubbed the most magnificent Yoga Hall in Europe. The sacred geometry creates a cathedral-like space, which is awe-inspiring. The Dome overlooks rolling hills, olive groves and a ruined convent. Inside, it boasts underfloor heating/cooling and two long walls for practising inversions, which have been beautifully decorated with colourful murals of Indian gods and Tibetan imagery.

The Spanish farmhouse-style wooden ceilings with beams and the terracotta tiled floors blend harmoniously with the exotic Asian furniture and wall hangings. The designer decor is both soothing to the soul and delightful to the eye, so, whatever your style and budget, there’s something for everyone!

Food and drink

Three delicious vegetarian meals a day will be presented buffet-style in the farmhouse dining room. Suryalila is renowned for the outstanding quality of their kitchen. Our meals will be vegetarian and organic with much of the produce coming from their own permaculture garden.

Complimentary water, fruit, teas and coffees are provided.

Special diets and allergies e.g. wheat-free, gluten-free, vegan, nut allergies and so on? No worries, when booking just let us know your dietary requirements. With such bounty it is unlikely you could ever be hungry, but just in case, fresh juices, smoothies, wine and snacks are available for purchase.

Nearest airports:

There are a few airport options close to the retreat:

Jerez de la Frontera airport = 93km / 1 hour 15m approx.
Seville airport = 109km / 1 hour 25 approx.
Malaga airport = 108km / 1 hour 45 approx.

Airport transfers:

We can arrange transfers to meet you at the airport and bring you directly to the centre, for this we need you to provide all flight details at least two weeks before the retreat starts. The costs per transfer to and from the airports are: €70 for a pick up from Jerez; €90 from Seville; €150 from Malaga. Where possible we will collect guests together so they can split the cost. Let us know if you would like to do this. Alternatively, hiring a car is very cost effective, (starting from £30 for 7 days) so you might prefer the flexibility that option offers?
