“Outstanding and Hiking and Yoga Retreat”
The hiking and yoga retreat at Suryalila was so incredibly relaxing and peaceful. I didn't have to worry about a single thing the whole time I was there as everything was taken care of. The staff were super attentive to any questions that arose. Lidiya, specifically, is not only an incredibly knowledgeable, creative yoga teacher, but she's also an excellent hiking and local guide. She truly cared for all of us on the retreat the whole time we were there. The meals were so delicious and unwinding with other people from the retreat with a glass of local Spanish wine some of the nights was perfect. While we had uncharacteristically rainy weather during our retreat, the hikes were still beautiful and peaceful. The yoga in the "Om Dom" was also peaceful and restorative and has re-inspired my interest in practising daily as I felt the immensely positive effects of the twice daily practice while there. I cannot wait to go back!!
