The Retreater

Surya Retreat Escape to Andalusia

About The Retreat

We create warm and down to earth spaces for women to come together. A space where you can step back, surrender to relaxation, dive deep into yourself, move slowly, untangle yourself from exhausting narratives and strengthen that connection to HER. We’ll realign, recentre and celebrate ourselves in our most authentic form. Yoga practices, Reiki, Massage, Journalling & Meditation, Sound Healing, slow days in the sun and connections with like minded souls. We’ll laugh, we’ll cry, we’ll take long lazy hikes, jump in the sea, lie in the sun, we’ll Retreat. Our home for 4 nights will be Surya Guesthouse, nestled between the mountains & the mediterranean sea, in an Andalusian village. Full of open spaces & sun drenched corners, the house is a truly magical place for all who stay there. The location is 20 mins from Old Town Marbella, with its cobbled, bougainvillea covered streets, cute cafes and Spanish charm, we have nearby beaches, walks in the hills and time for you to explore on your own if you wish to, if you like a little more independence we recommend hiring a car from Malaga airport or despite being in an out of town area, Uber does operate. Whether you are looking to explore yoga further or already have a practice that you are looking to deepen, this is the retreat for you. Perfect for both solo travellers and those of you looking to take a trip with a friend.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to bring anything?

All mats and all other yoga equipment is provided so you don't need to bring anything unless you choose to bring your own mat. We try to limit single use plastic, so would recommend bringing a water bottle for our time out of the house. Bring a journal, we'll have journal prompts for each day (optional). And of course a book, nothing beats relaxing in the sun with a good read! The temperature this time of year is in the high 20's so be sure to pack an SPF, light breathable clothing, swimwear, clothes for your yoga practice & a warmer layers for sunrises & in the evening. If you plan on taking walks, bring trainers

Do I need travel insurance?

Travel insurance is always a good idea, due to our cancellation policy we can't offer any refund if there were to be any problems/delays with your flight or airline. We encourage you to purchase trip cancellation insurance in order that your trip fees will be covered should you or your family have a medical problem prior to your trip or while on the trip. Trip insurance should also be purchased to cover medical expenses in the event you have an accident while on the retreat. Most travel insurance must be purchased within 14 days of making your reservation.

I'm nervous about coming solo, will everyone be travelling with friends?

Not at all! A lot of people come to our retreats solo, because of the smaller group numbers everyone bonds really quickly and you leave feeling like you've known everyone for ages. A lot of people stay in touch which is beautiful. The biggest part of our ethos is creating a welcoming, safe & warm space so you can feel totally at ease.

Will there be any extra costs during the retreat?

All the activities during the retreat are free, if you would like to do things as a group we provide transport free of charge to the beach or into town, if you are exploring in separate groups, we recommend Uber or Car hire if you would like more independence. You won't incur any extra costs other than your airport transfers and if you fancy indulging in a massage. We have a masseuse who can come to the house if you would like this (approx 70 euros). Of course you can shop, cafe hop etc when we're out of the house but its totally possible to enjoy the experience with out incurring any extra costs.

A beautiful space laced with a blend of warm compassion and joy. The nature of Surya Retreat is relaxed and open. You are given ample free time & option to be alone or join in.There is no expectation, you are there purely to benefit from the healing powers of yoga and the other practices and soak up the sun.You're made to feel so at home. I can't recommend it enough, I can’t wait to come back!

Ellas ability to create a relaxed and welcoming environment was clear from the beginning.Straight away I started to feel the stresses of the previous months just melt away.She not only guides you through sessions with clear instruction but she is attentive and light and stops you feeling self conscious.The retreat was just what I needed, the time, the space, the sun & the beautiful people! Joyous!

Where to begin, just coming back down to earth after the most epic trip. Those sunrises will stay with me forever! What a magical retreat you created, every detail was so carefully thought through and we could feel your love, support and enthusiasm in every element. I felt a state of relaxation that I have not felt in 10 years. Thankyou. I'll be back.
