The goal of this retreat is to help you deepen your yoga practice in a beautiful retreat environment while exploring the Spanish countryside through outdoor activities here in the breathtaking nature of Andalusia. Classes will be focused on alignment, moving with integrity, powerful breathing and meditation practices. The morning sessions will be vigorous and uplifting and the afternoon classes rejuvenating and relaxing, with a strong focus on breathing. The yoga holiday is ideal for active people and nature lovers.
There could not be a better way to experience all that Andalusia’s magnificent nature and culture have to offer! Suryalila exudes a sense of vastness the minute you arrive: rolling hills, sunflower fields and lakes – the perfect backdrop to deepen your yoga practice.

This is true Ibiza style at it finest, an authentic Ibizan experience, with incredible sunsets and secluded spots for watching the sun go down.
We heal the soul though connecting to nature, we heal the soul by being, by allowing, by feeling we heal the soul by listening to that still voice of the soul within and developing that dialogue.
The experience here is to really re-connect, to plug back in, to allow in the space to nourish, the time to replenish, the energy to open, the vibration to heal and the frequency to elevate
We go deep into exploring our connection to our purpose, our intuition, our feeling and have an opportunity to listen to our soul and our soul’s calling and tune into what we really have come here to express, to make manifest, to experience, to vibrate.

Retreats for women in Marrakech

The UK based owner, Lucia Silver, will work with you to design a program of perfectly balanced relaxing, adventurous and cultural activities that will nurture your body and romance your soul.
In Lucia’s words, this is a “Gorgeous marriage of the radical self love we owe to our hard working-selves and the style, fun and cultural sophistication of Sex and the City”. All you need to do is tell us what you need and want and leave us to do the rest. Your only job is to get on a plane here and enjoy it.
In Lucia’s work as a red carpet and wedding dress designer in London, Brides tell her all the time that they can’t find anywhere original or distinctive to celebrate their hen with their best girlfriends.
Especially if they don’t want it to involve stretch white limos, pink bunny ears and sweaty nightclubs.Well that’s no longer true! “Sex and the City” inspired and reminded us of the fun and importance of precious girlfriend time and Lucia wanted to create something really special at Dar to allow for just this.
