Five days of soul and body nourishment with Joanna and Esmeralda.
Join us in Andalusia to experience a rich concoction of yoga, dance, movement and stillness. Reconnect to yourself, rewild your body and restore your whole being.
Join us on this yoga journey as we move in different ways, exploring and rediscovering our bodies. We will also nourish our souls with deep connection, nature and dance.
First we acknowledge our body as it is and how it is formed — together with all its curious uniqueness. Then, through carefully designed workshops, we will play with expanding our ranges of motion and building strength in ways you never thought possible.
From these safe foundations we open the space for playfulness and spontaneous flow, inviting freedom to swirl, spiral, and find your own dance.
Expect a rich concoction of yoga, dance, ritual, thai massage, breathwork, acroyoga, dynamic meditation, EFT and stillness. All designed for you to explore, let go, and feel deeper into your presence.
The retreat is in the stunning Suryalila retreat centre (where we both trained and Joanna is now living!) - right in the heart of the Andalusian countryside ♥ an area known for its natural beauty. The majestic mountain range of Sierra de Grazalema can be seen on the horizon behind Suryalila, making the views in all directions breathtaking.
The property has 50 acres of land and is still a working olive farm with 800 olive trees. The buildings are beautifully renovated farm houses laid out in typical Spanish style with lemon and orange tree courtyards.
Suryalila also has state of the art yoga halls, including the magnificent Om Dome, with a high quality sound system, beautiful views and decorated murals around the walls. We can't wait to host our ecstatic dance in this amazing space!!

Leave this special place with a new circle of friends, and a refreshed toolbox of ideas you can take home and use to take care of your physical, spiritual and emotional bodies.
• Three delicious, healthy, vegetarian meals a day. Cooked lovingly with local, seasonal and organic produce (often using produce harvested from the Suryalila garden).
• Rest, integrate, relax and read in the hammocks or by the salt water swimming pool. There is also a weekly wood fired Sauna to enjoy!
• A range of options to explore the stunning hikes in the Sierra de Grazalema, or cultural trips to Ronda, Cadiz or Seville.
Allow your spirit to be wild and free — free to feel whatever you need to feel and free to show up exactly as you are.
Expect to walk the walk of self-love, self-compassion and body liberation, whilst nourishing and uplifting the most important relationship of all — the one you have with yourself.

Joanna and Esmeralda qualified together as yoga teachers at Suryalila in 2015. During the training they supported each other with copious amounts of hugs and held space for each other to share and process the journey they were on.
Despite rarely living in the same country over the last 6 years, Joanna and Esmeralda have shared and supported each other through all life has thrown at them.
They are one of each others’ biggest teachers, loudest cheerleaders and also clearest reflections. A friendship like this isn’t always easy but it has been a gift to have a safe space to learn to communicate and express with more love.
Co-creating retreats, holding space and sharing magic is something Joanna and Esmeralda have been dreaming up for a long time. After their first workshop in the summer of 2019 was a huge success they are overjoyed to be sharing more of the magic, and love that overflows when they come together.
