AcroYoga Retreat Spain

AcroYoga combines acrobatic concepts with a yogic consciousness.  It offers a unique path to connect with others, to build trust, and to communicate in new ways.  The more acrobatic inspired movements can challenge and take us to energetic highs, while therapeutic poses ground and centre.  The practice is diverse, and continues to grow, offering ever new means of expressing ourselves, being creative and having fun.

Apart from three gorgeous yoga halls, Suryalila Retreat Centre boasts a salt water swimming pool, eco sauna/sweat lodge and views to the most magnificent and vibrant sunsets. You will be nurtured with outstanding organic vegetarian, vegan-friendly cuisine, with fresh organic fruits and vegetables, homegrown cured olives, freshly-pressed organic juices, spicy Indian Chai, vegan coffee, raw-food desserts.
