Dome Sweet Dome

What we love about Suryalila Retreat Center is that there’s always an energy of sunshine (“surya” means sun) and play (“lila” means play).

So join us for a week in the sun at one the most beautiful retreat centers in the world. We practice in state of the art yoga halls, including the incredible Om Dome, the Moon Shala and Ganesha Shala

Sierra de Grazalema

The mountain range of Sierra de Grazalema can be seen on the horizon behind Suryalila, making the views in all directions so beautiful. The property has 50 acres of land for you to wander with 800 olive trees and animals to say hello to.

Rejuvenate

The buildings on site are beautifully renovated farm houses laid out in typical Spanish style with lemon and orange tree courtyards.

Rejuvenate yourself with a week of yoga, breathwork, meditation and healing that will leave you feeling inspired, relaxed, renewed and naturally balanced.

Natural Balance

Internalise the senses through deep embodiment yoga practices working from the ground up, guided breathing practices to connect to your inner world, yin yoga to observe the shifts in energy within and music to match the rhythm of life that you seek. All this deeper work will balanced with some free time for contemplation, live music entertainment for the senses, lighthearted craic and fun.

The Retreat
Our retreats are open to all levels of yoga experience, all ages, families, couples, friends and solo travellers so we are delighted to have such a nice mixed group booked on this retreat

This week will be a break from your daily routine, a time to disconnect from the noise of the outside world while spending time in sunshine to practice yoga in the Om dome and other on site yoga shalas, take breaks relaxing on site, watch the sunset, enjoy gourmet organic food, take hikes in the area around the Spanish hills of Grazalema or even visit the nearby White Villages! There will be lots to do in your free time and you can opt in and out of any of the classes and trips on offer during the week. 

Our yoga classes are based on functional movement. We understand most people coming to retreats have busy lives and full time jobs. We incorporate myofascial release. We help you understand why it’s good to move the body in certain ways that yoga provides. Slowing things down doesn’t necessarily make it easier but allows us time to feel what’s happening in the body and integrate intelligent habits of movement and alignment. 

Our classes are accessible to all bodies, ages and abilities even if you’re a progressive student of yoga you will be offered variations to go deeper and if you’re starting out with a yoga practice or have any injuries you will be fully supported to suit your needs. 

As lovers of life and vitality nothing brings us more joy to share ways that enable anyone to experience life more fully. To walk taller, breath deeper and not have worries and stresses constantly niggling. Every morning will have a different focus, spinal awareness, side-body tune up, heart and lungs expansion and the meaning of Bhakti. Finding my seat, the centre of power and stability…. to name a few. 

With guided meditations, strength and mobility classes, breath work and chanting workshops with the unfoldment of the sacred mantras to live music from local talents and a fusion of the Irish and Andalusian we have a wonderful week planned.
