Suryalila Yoga Retreat

Suryalila Yoga Retreat

Holistic yoga retreat in Andalusia – 4th edition

Our fourth retreat at the magical Suryalila will be from Sunday 14th to Friday 19th of February 2021 and I hope you can join us, for another 6 days of nurturing, relaxing and transformative Yoga. 

I am thrilled that my dear friend, Cecilia Wootz will be joining me again this year, so we can treat you to a mix of morning uplifting dynamic Hatha practices, evening restorative and Yin sessions, nidras and daily meditations. There will also be group or private TRE® and QEC sessions available most days.

Suryalila it is a beautiful retreat centre in the foothills of Andalusian mountains in southern Spain. Within a short distance from Seville or Malaga airports, it is the perfect place to unwind, rest & re energise mind, body and soul. The Yoga shalas, the delicious vegetarian/vegan organic food, the accommodation, the pool, the sauna, all create the perfect environment and scenery to find stillness and allow the mind and body time to rest and unwind and revitalise your energy on all levels. (

This 6 day and 5 night retreat is open to all abilities and levels of experience. Morning classes will be a 2 hour holistic Hatha Yoga practice led by Julie and assisted by Cecilia. A dynamic, energising and uplifting class, including gentle warm ups, breath kriyas (cleansing), posture work, pranayama, meditation and relaxation.

Evening classes will be slower, more introspective restorative practices, including Yoga Nidra, Yin, silent and guided meditations and pranayama, to allow a deep relaxation of our whole organism and releasing areas of deep rooted tension and resistance.

The daily meditation sessions will be led by Cecilia.

Thanks for creating an environment where each of us could explore in a way which suited us individually.  I have come away with an enhanced awareness of and respect for my body and what it is telling me. I feel that I have moved on in my yoga journey in that I am now able to better incorporate my physical body into my mind/body/spirit practice.  I’ve realised that until now, I haven’t given it enough attention.  Thank you!   I really enjoyed learning TRE too. Having a technique which will enable healing of the many injuries I’ve sustained is a true gift. I loved the yoga nidra, your spontaneous chanting and the quotes and poems you shared. Finally, thank you for being uniquely you.

The whole experience was wonderful. Their was a great generosity of spirit during the week spent on Suryalial, from the abundance of great food to the sharing among the group and your sharing all your knowledge with us. The yoga classes were challenging and pushed me to  try new asana that normally I’d avoid. Your wonderful sense of humour kept it all upbeat and moving along. I loved the variety, pranayama, chanting, mixture of Yin and vinyasa yoga and mudras. I looked forward to each session  knowing something new was to be shared. The retreat was well planned with great variety and I’m looking forward to your next one….keep me informed!
