I recently went on a long yoga retreat weekend in Suryalila in Spain. This was a proper yoga retreat centre that offers yoga teacher training as well as Permaculture courses. The property sits on 45 acres of land and is still a working olive farm with 350 olive trees!
It was such a wonderful experience. The food was healthy and delicious, and most of the vegetables and fruit were from their garden. It was either vegan or vegetarian food and the daily changing menu was creative and exciting.
The accommodation had everything you needed. Enough space to truly relax…even had an outdoor swimming pool! The staff and yoga teachers were all very helpful and kind which helped to make you feel at home.
Yoga was held in their famous Om dome, which has been voted ‘the most magnificent yoga hall in Europe’. Practicing yoga in the dome with a view with beautiful rolling hills and large open valley were truly inspiring. They also had two other lovely practice spaces too.
We did two yoga practices daily but as it didn’t feel too much as we did restorative yoga, breathing techniques and meditation practices in the afternoon. There was plenty of free time and optional massage facilities, which I took full advantage of.
After the holidays, I felt balanced, refreshed and energised. I was ready to come home and take on a new exciting project. Prior to going to the retreat, I was offered a great new opportunity and it was a perfect place to contemplate.
Excitingly, I will be running a yoga retreat this year in Tarifa. This is a luxury 7 day holiday in a gorgeous Villa La Peña From Saturday 17th - 24th June 2017.
Villa La Peña is located in a stunning elevated position in the La Pena area (Natural Park) of Tarifa, nestled between mountain and sea with a panoramic view over miles of sandy beaches. It faces the Strait of Gibraltar, looking out east across to Morocco's Rif Mountains and west to the Port of Tangiers.
