“El pintoresco centro Suryalila tiene una energía muy especial. Está dirigido con amor y respeto. El personal, las vistas, la comida, el alojamiento y mucho más, es por lo que continúo viniendo. ¡Es completamente mágico!”—Emma Henry, Profesora Senior Jivamukti, Londres, Reino Unido

Suryalila es un lugar mágico – sientes paz desde el momento que llegas. Después de la primera noche, no querrás irte… Martin D. Clark, editor de OM Yoga y Lifestyle Magazine

Nuestro centro de retiro de Yoga

Suryalila es una bonita vieja plantación de olivos renovada formada por 8 casas que forman el cortijo. Con estilo típico español, hay dos patios interiores, uno de los cuales florece con naranjos y limoneros.
La propiedad ocupa 45 acres de tierra y todavía funciona como plantación de olivos, compuesta por unos 350 olivos. También cultivamos verduras y frutas orgánicas y tenemos nuestras propias gallinas para producir huevos. Suryalila descansa tranquilamente en un gran valle abierto, a los pies de las montañas de la Sierra de Grazalema. Esta majestuosa cadena de montañas se asoma por detrás del horizonte de Suryalila. Una notable parte de la belleza natural de la propiedad son las impresionantes vistas que se extienden en todas las direcciones: las montañas onduladas, las tierras de girasoles, y los lagos. El sentido de la inmensidad es muy inspirador.

Alojamiento e instalaciones

Todas las casas de la propiedad son ingeniosas, amuebladas con gusto y decoradas cuidadosamente prestando atención al detalle. Cada habitación es única y preciosa, con impecable Feng Shui.
Accommodation-webSuryalila 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.  Ganesha Yoga Shala comfortably holds 30 people. 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. The Dome can comfortably hold 60 people practicing Yoga and a lot more for concerts and other events. Both of our Yoga spaces are fully outfitted with Yoga props.
