Summer Solstice - A HoY Summer Retreat

1 - 7 June 2024

Join Elena & Lisa for an early summer week of yoga, meditation and pranayama practices at the stunning Suryalila retreat center in Andalusia from 1 -7 June 2024.

Voted best yoga retreat center in Europe in 2019 by the Yoga Journal, Suryalila is not just a destination – it’s a sanctuary for your body, mind, and soul. Surrounded by rolling hills, fragrant olive groves, and stunning views, Suryalila provides the perfect backdrop for your yoga journey.

***

Suryalila is an old Spanish olive grove farm converted into a yoga retreat center and located in the heart of Spain’s Andalusian hills. It’s approximately 45 minutes from Cadiz and 60 minutes from Sevilla, the vibrant heart of Andalusia. On the edge of a stunning, mountainous national park, the property sits in a river valley overlooking country farms and the white lakeside village of Bornos.

The converted farmhouses include a range of different rooms, catering for those looking for luxury and privacy as well as those looking for a beautiful but more economical shared option.
