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 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 slow down and connect to our body exactly as it is. We take time to unwind from our daily pressures, stresses and stimuli. We listen deeply to hear who we truly are and what we need.
From this foundation we open up a safe space for playfulness and spontaneous flow, inviting freedom to swirl, spiral, and find your own dance.
Expect a rich concoction of yoga, dance, ritual, massage, breathwork, partner practices, meditation, EFT and co-regulation with nature.
This retreat is designed for you to feel deeper into who you are and what you need moment to moment, so you can create authentic connections and move with more joy through life.
The retreat is in the stunning Suryalila retreat centre (where we both trained) - 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!!

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.
Joanna and Esmeralda have been holding workshops and running courses together since 2019. They are overjoyed to be sharing more of the magic, and love that overflows when they come together at this very special retreat.
