Spanish Retreat


Hosted by Jo Fletcher and Holly Cleanthi, this is an experience completely dedicated to you!

Enrich your body and mind with daily yoga and meditation, learn and develop within workshops, take in beautiful surroundings, enjoy plenty of nourishing foods with a bunch of lovely yogis.

Suryalila is a beautiful old renovated olive farm consisting of eight houses that form the cortijo. The property sits on 50 acres of land and is still a working olive farm with 800 olive trees

As many of you know, I have came and fallen in love with this heavenly Sanctury this year in July, hence organising already to return, but this time with you.

All yoga, meditation and workshops will be lead by myself Holly Cleanthi and the fabulous Jo Fletcher.

We course welcome all levels to join us, however we would suggest that you have a regular yoga practice for at least a month before the retreat as we will be on the mat frequently!

We also recommend that you attend at least one of our classes beforehand (if possible)so you are familiar with our styles. You can find my classes online and in studios.

All are welcome, we will be holding a safe and supportive space for you to explore, learn and develop within your practise.

We have limited spaces to an absolute maximum of 12 guests, since we want to ensure we get to spend maxium quality time with each of you, to develop your practise and cater to your needs.

If you would like to secure your spot, we are asking a security deposit of £500 which is transferrable or refundable if Spain is closed for tourists due to Covid restrictions.

Your price includes all food, accommodation, all yoga, meditation, workshops, hiking trips. Your flights are not included.

Your Teachers

Holly Cleanthi – teaching since April 2018, I specialise in anatomically inspired vinyasa flows with creative sequencing. Passionate about biomechanics, I teach movement and mobility within my flows. I like to give an understadning or eduction about what we are doing and why. Fascinated by meditation and the most powerful tool, which is our breath. I can’t wait to share this experience with you.

Jo Fletcher – Having studied various forms of yoga and collected the corresponding certificates, the primary style of yoga I teach is Vinyasa, Dynamic Flow, Power Yoga and Mandala. My teaching style is vibrant, fun and dynamic with challenging options to help recharge the mind and purify the body. I truly believe yoga is for everyone and I hope to help enhance the lives of others by creating mind and body awareness and alignment through a creative, dynamic flow practice infused with positive psychology.
