If you’re curious about yoga in Spain, wish to know more about what I once did here, or you just simply want to say hi 😉
drop me a line!
Surya Retreats was my dream once.
Having worked in the tourism business for a long time, and loving the practise of yoga, years ago I felt the urgent need to show my fellow yogis what my beautiful country, Spain, has to offer. A yoga practitioner myself, I had worked internationally over the last 10 years in the tourism industry, specializing in destination marketing for my home country.
Having attended several retreats with the eye of a long-term tourism professional, I knew well enough what yogis look for during their retreats. Besides, I knew the Spanish territory very well and I truly believe there is not a more beautiful, landscape-diverse country in Europe. I wanted to show yogis Spanish local culture, tasty food and astounding natural beauty, as well as getting them inspired to share their practise amongst each other.
And that’s what made Surya Retreats possible.
For 3 years, I travelled around Spain looking for the best yoga retreats, and meeting very inspiring people. I contacted yoga teachers worldwide who organized their retreats here with me. I organized their retreats, and I met all those yogis who wanted to practise here in Spain. It was fun.
After those years, I was running short both on free time and money, and what I felt was way more important than that -I noticed I started to feel a slow burnout feeling deep down inside.
It wasn’t easy, but I decided to quit before it was too late. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, and this experience definitely made me stronger and wiser.
I’m now off the business, but I still love this business! I still love practising yoga, going on retreats and traveling, and I still have all this knowledge experience has left behind with me. So I might share some insights here in my blog every now and then.
I hope you enjoy it!
