Surya Retreat classes

The Surya programme is the reflection of 10+ years of careful planning and refining. Believing in the complementary nature of yoga and Pilates, they have crafted a calendar that emphasizes experimentation and progression. Combining taster courses, specialist weeks, and teacher training modules alongside meditation, therapies, and workshop intensives, they are confident all levels of practitioners will feel supported, challenged, and inspired.

Lead by Rachel Blunt and Jo Dombernowsky, the inspired team will share their knowledge and passions with you. You will feel supported and encouraged, whatever your level. The diverse weekly schedule (over 18 classroom hours) is delivered at a pace that allows you to do it all and still have time for additional therapies and exploration. Be more selective and just relax, it’s your retreat, you decide what is right for you!

Yoga and Pilates complement each other really well. Azulfit has crafted a program that inspires, challenges, and motivates both beginner and experienced practitioners. Featuring warm, experienced, world class instruction, they have a daily program brimming with Pilates and yoga classes for all levels.

Location

A bright, open wooden-floored yoga shala is an inviting space in which to deepen your practice and offers a true immersion into mindful movement. Pure bliss. For Pilates lovers, the apparatus studio allows you to schedule private sessions with expert teachers, this careful one-to-one tuition allowing time to focus on your personal needs and to elevate your private practice.

Classes offered on the signature retreat week

  • Vinyasa flow yoga

Vinyasa flow is a flowing, dynamic form of yoga which involves moving from one pose to another in a constant flow, with the breath. This form of yoga builds strength and stamina. Flow through postures to open your body and feel invigorated and rejuvenated.

  • Hatha yoga

Hatha yoga focuses on relaxing the body and the mind through deep stretching and abdominal breathing. The classes on arrival day and early in the week will have a basis in Hatha yoga.

  • Yin yoga

Yin yoga is a complementary practice to the more dynamic forms of yoga and to your busy fast-paced lives, with the intention of stimulating and strengthening the tissues of the body not normally emphasized in more active practices.

The word Yin, comes from the Daoist Yin-Yang theory, which holds that the universe is made of complementary and oppositional forces; up-down, hot-cold, male-female, these concepts are relatively existing in relation to one another, like two sides of a coin, and when you balance the yin and yang in your lives, you'll flow in harmony with nature.

A Yin class is designed with this balance and harmony in mind, so you can expect to be guided softly into familiar yoga postures, using props and supports to hold a sensitive presence to sensation with the body for between three-five minutes. This is a slow, passive, receptive practice which will leave you feeling nourished, with a sense of equinimity and relaxation for the body and mind.

  • Pilates

The primary physical focus of Pilates is on building core strength to improve alignment, posture, and overall strength. It was originally developed by Joseph Pilates to aid rehabilitation after injury. Azulfit's team of experts are classically trained but have also trained in the progressive approach, so they can expertly teach to all levels and inspire you on the next step of your Pilates adventure.

This is much more than gym class, this is a chance to experience Pilates in its true form and to use the practice to help you build fluid graceful movement, from the core to prevent injury and improve all aspects of your physical practice.

  • Meditation

Meditation has many different forms and ways to approach the practice. It generally involves a stilling and quietening of the mind that is deeply relaxing and promotes health and healing. You will experience several types of meditation, from cleansing to breath-focused meditations, to help promote stillness and mindfulness. These are optional practices available over the course of the week.

At Azulfit Surya Retreat you can enjoy a fantastic range of classes, including yoga, Pilates, and meditation. These classes are for a variety of levels and instructors will provide modifications for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students. However, if you have a particular condition/injury or are pregnant, they cannot guarantee that all classes will be suitable for you. Azulfit recommends contacting them in advance to discuss your needs.

If you have never done Pilates or yoga before, is this okay?

Azulfit offers inclusive classes for all levels from beginner to advanced, so join them if you would like to try Pilates or yoga for the first time. They offer a variety of yoga classes so you can sample and work out the best style for you, and the teachers work with you to safely help you progress and challenge yourself each week.

How many people do you typically have for a week?

Group size varies from 14 to 20 guests. The excellent instructors provide attention and progressions to all levels so you come away equipped to accomplish your goals. They will provide modifications and challenge progressions where needed.

If you have a condition or illness/injury, will you be able to take part in classes?

In all of their classes, you are encouraged to go at your own pace and to listen to your body. They try, where possible to take note of any injuries or illnesses you have and offer you suitable modifications and adjustments. In cases of serious injury, illness, or pregnancy, they ask that you consider booking a private class or private class package, where you get private tuition, at your own pace. If you have any serious doubts about attending the retreat, you can send an inquiry and seek advice from your doctor.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

You can book your flight to come directly to Fuerteventura Airport (FUE), based in Puerto del Rosario). For a wider choice of flights, you can fly to Lanzarote Arrecife airport (ACE) and take the 20-minute ferry crossing to Fuerteventura. The last ferry crossing to Corralejo from Playa Blanca, Lanzarote is at 19:00 so please make sure your flight arrives by 16:00 if traveling with luggage.

Fuerteventura airport is 35 minutes from the Surya Retreat. Azulfit recommends that you allow them to organize a transfer for you. This will ensure that you have no waiting around at the airport and that your driver knows exactly where you are going, allowing you to get to Surya Retreat and settle in as smoothly and stress-free as possible. The cost is as follows:

  • 1 guest - 40 EUR
  • 2 guests - 20 EUR per person
  • 3 guests or more - 15 EUR per person

Azulfit always tries to arrange shared transfers for guests arriving at similar times to keep your costs down. Coming by public transport is not recommended as you will need to take three buses to get to the Surya Retreat (bus number 3 to Puerto del Rosario, changing to the number 6 to Corralejo then the number 8 to Villaverde).

Driving directions from Fuerteventura airport

Before you leave the airport please text or call Azulfit to inform them you are on your way. They can let the team know what time to expect you at the retreat so that someone can be there to meet you. This is especially important for evening flights.

  • On leaving the airport take the Corralejo exit off the roundabout which filters into the dual carriageway going north. Take the 2nd exit signposted Antigua, La Oliva, Corralejo, this road circles sharp left under the dual carriageway, continue on this road.
  • Take the 2nd exit on the right marked La Oliva and go around the roundabout taking the 3rd exit for La Oliva (FV-10), stay on this road, passing through Tindaya until you reach La Oliva, you will see a church on the right-hand side. Continue along passing a small post office (Correos) on the right hand side.
  • You will come to the end of La Oliva, continue on this road. Next, you will see Casa Vieja Hotel & Restaurant on your left-hand side and Hiperdino Supermarket on your right-hand side. You will then see the sign for Villaverde on the right-hand side.
  • Continue until you reach Per Sonare (bar and restaurant) on your right-hand side.
  • Take your next left onto Calle Los Altos (This is not a very visible turn, so be aware of that. The speed limit is 50 within the village so you should be going slow enough to see the road.). Take the 3rd right on Calle Virgen del Pino. This turns into Calle la Tabaiba. Make a left into the gate, you will see a large blue flag with Azulfit's logo, Azulfit, 100 Calle Tabaiba.
