You will be accommodated in Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre. It is a beautiful, old-renovated olive farm consisting of eight houses that form the cortijo. In typical Spanish style, there are two inner courtyards, one of which blooms with orange and lemon trees. The property sits on 45 acres of land and is still a working olive farm with 350 olive trees.

The houses on the property are all artfully and tastefully furnished and decorated with careful attention to detail. Every room is uniquely beautiful with impeccable feng shui. It 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, the dome boasts underfloor heating and cooling and two long walls for practicing inversions. The walls have been beautifully decorated with colorful murals of Indian gods and Tibetan imagery.

The dome can comfortably hold 60 people practicing yoga and a lot more for concerts and other events. Both of the yoga spaces are fully outfitted with yoga props. Apart from three gorgeous yoga halls, Suryalila Retreat Centre boasts a saltwater swimming pool, eco sauna or sweat lodge, and views of the most magnificent and vibrant sunsets.

There at Suryalila, the staffs have cats, peacocks, chickens, horses, and the neighbors' dogs often come onto the property so it is best to leave your pets at home. There are also hunters in the area at different times of years.


As a part of the retreat, you will go on a couple of stunning hikes, visit a local Spanish town, experience a guided art workshop (Stones in Balance with a local world class artist) enjoy a flamenco dancing class, live music, and AcroYoga class.

Retreat location

This retreat will take place in Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre, Andalusia, Spain. Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre is the perfect place where you can find the pace to move into healing. It is located in the heart of the Spanish Andalusian hills, close to the charming villages of Arcos de la Frontera and Prado del Rey.

On the edge of a stunning mountainous national park, the property sits in a large river valley overlooking agricultural land and in the far distance, the white lakeside village of Bornos. Suryalila 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 Suryalila.

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.
