Introducing ~ The Retreat – A 7 Night Yoga Retreat in Andalucia Spain with Nadia Carriere/ October 26-November 2, 2024

THE MAGIC

Sometimes you need a reset, a reminder of what matters, and what’s possible. To go back to basics, to everything that comes from the earth, and take everything out that doesn’t. Welcome to a retreat that is exactly that – an actual retreat. Winning awards for the Best Retreat in Europe from numerous agencies and travel companies, Suryalila Retreat Centre is a dream! Located in southern Spain in the heart of the Andalucia hills, this escape is designed to bring you back to what matters. Suryalila Retreat Centre, originally an olive hacienda, is located close to the charming villages of Arcos de la Frontera and Prado del Rey. It’s approximately 45 minutes from the historic and beautiful walled city of Cadiz and an hour’s drive from Sevilla, the vibrant heart of Andalucía. ​

YOGA & WORKSHOPS

This week is designed to bring you back home to the one that’s always with you. Home to your body, mind and spirit. Nadia will be leading you through a variety of yoga styles including Vinyasa, Yin, Yoga Nidra and Restorative, designed to ground and release. In addition to this daily schedule, Nadia will be teaching two specialty interactive workshops over the 7 days that challenge your creativity and mind.

CREATIVE DETAILS

What’s included?

  • 7 nights accommodation in your room of choice
  • Vegetarian Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner daily in buffet (vegan, gluten-free options are provided in case needed)
  • A visit to the Hammam in Jerez includes about 90 mins in the baths followed by lunch in Jerez and time to walk around the town. The whole excursion is 5 hours and includes your transfers there and back. Lunch is not included for the day however we will be visiting a lovely restaurant for a Spanish meal after your spa treatment. Transfers included.
  • Eco Sauna Experience enjoying the beautiful wood-fired Temazcal eco-sauna on property.
  • Permaculture Tour which provides an introduction to Danyadara, Suryalila’s permaculture and land regeneration project, and an explanation of everything they are doing on the land and why it is important. You will visit our donkeys, alpacas and goats and get to view some very interesting eco-buildings that they’ve created on their adjoining staff property. Danyadara is an integral part of Suryalila and very dear to their hearts.

  • El Bosque and Benamahoma Hike – these are two picturesque villages tucked away amongst the mountains of the Sierra de Grazalema National Park. They are part of what is known as ‘Pueblos Blancos’ – a unique tourist name in Andalusia consisting of a group of towns in the provinces of Cadiz and Malaga characterised by their whitewashed facades and steep streets.
