Treat yourself to a wonderful escape to bright Andalusia for an extraordinary experience of Wine and Yoga. During the retreat you will tone and relax during the yoga classes as well as delve into the world of wines, especially our local Andalusian wines.

Esther’s passion for wine started at her parent’s dinner table. But it wasn’t until 2006 that she started working in the world of wine, as many do, in a wine shop.

Flanked by Suryalila’s world class yoga teachers Esther Mercedes Jürgens will teach entertaining, yet informative wine classes and lead you on winery visits in the area. An Andalusian cooking class as well as wine and food pairing round off this rich experience.

Since 2013 Esther holds the WSET Diploma in Wines and Spirits and is now an accomplished wine expert with many years of experience. Over the last 7 years she has been living in Tuscany/Italy. There and in Chile she worked in several wineries, welcoming visitors and explaining the wines and wine making process.


At Suryalila Retreat Centre, we provide different levels of accommodation to suit every budget. From glamping in the olive grove to relaxing in the luxury of our deluxe doubles, we will make sure you have the experience of a lifetime! We offer a wide range of hotel accommodations to suit both independent travellers and large Yoga groups and retreats.

Our accommodation packages are all inclusive, which means that whether you are sleeping in a dorm or in our deluxe room, you will enjoy three gourmet vegetarian buffet-style meals per day and have full access to all of our beautiful common areas and facilities.

Unique Furnishings & Decorations:

Our furnishings and decorations have all been imported from Bali, India and Morocco. The Spanish farmhouse-style wooden ceilings with beams and the terracotta tiled floors blend harmoniously with the exotic Asian furniture and wall hangings. The designer decor is both soothing to the soul and delightful to the eye.

Suryalila 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 beautiful decorated with colourful murals of Indian gods and Tibetan imagery. There is a state of the art sound system as well as atmospheric lighting.
