About This Event

Through the Raja Yoga Retreat, GIL Teachings offers a significant spiritual experience and deep exploration into the wisdom of Raja Yoga.

The primary focus of the retreat is personal insight: improvement of mental health and spiritual growth. Physical activity plays a vital part of the retreat, offering one intensive Hatha Yoga session in the morning and a restorative one in the afternoon.

The mission of the retreat is to transmit the core values of Raja Yoga and leave the practitioner with enough space, clarity and capacity for further mental development and spiritual expansion.

This 7-day retreat goes through a carefully developed yoga program and delivers tools and exercises which value is non-expiring and its potential is present after the retreat is finished. The practitioner leaves the Raja Yoga Retreat physically but not mentally or spiritually.

Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre, originally an Olive Hacienda, is located in the heart of the Spanish Andalucian Hills, close to the charming villages of Arcos de la Frontera and Prado del Rey. It is approximately 45 minutes from the historic and beautiful walled city of Cadiz and an hour’s drive from Sevilla, the vibrant heart of Andalucía. On the edge of a stunning, mountainous national park, the property sits in a large river valley overlooking agricultural land and in the far distance, the white lakeside village of Bornos.
There are a few airport options close to them. The best airport to fly to is Seville (75 minutes away), then Jerez de la Frontera (50 minutes). Malaga is also an option (2 hours by transfer / car or three hours by bus).
They organize transfers from the airport to Suryalila. The cost of Seville is 90 EUR, from Jerez – 70 EUR and from Malaga – 150 EUR. Usually, they group people arriving at a similar time together, so you can share the cost of the transfer. Alternatively, there are buses running to Villamartin from where a taxi can pick you up. The cost of a pickup form Villamartin to Suryalila is 20 EUR.
Should you decide to travel by bus, they can send you the bus timetable closer to your arrival.
Once your transfer is organized, please advise any changes or cancelations 24 hours before your arrival.
