Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre is a beautiful, old-renovated olive farm consisting of eight houses that form the Cortijo. In typical Spanish style, there are two inner courtyards, one of which blooms with orange and lemon trees. The property sits on 45 acres of land and is still a working olive farm with 350 olive trees. The houses on the property are all artfully and tastefully furnished and decorated with careful attention to detail. Every room is uniquely beautiful with impeccable Feng Shui. Suryalila has three yoga halls. Ganesha yoga shala has a gorgeous wooden ceiling as well as a wooden floor and is filled with light from windows on both walls as well as a skylight. It also has a lovely balcony with benches for enjoying the expansive views. Ganesha yoga shala comfortably holds 30 people.

The Om Dome has been dubbed the most magnificent yoga hall in Europe. The sacred geometry creates a cathedral-like space, which is awe-inspiring. The dome overlooks rolling hills, olive groves, and a ruined convent. Inside, the dome boasts underfloor heating and cooling, and two long walls for practicing inversions. The walls have been beautifully decorated with colorful murals of Indian gods and Tibetan imagery. There is a state of the art sound system as well as atmospheric lighting. The dome can comfortably hold 60 people practicing yoga and a lot more for concerts and other events. Both of the yoga spaces are fully outfitted with yoga props. Apart from three gorgeous yoga halls, Suryalila Retreat Centre boasts a saltwater swimming pool, eco sauna / sweat lodge, and views of the most magnificent and vibrant sunsets.

This three-week intensive yoga teacher training in Andalusia, Spain, is an exceptionally high quality, fully comprehensive profoundly life-transforming retreat. It is passionately and skillfully led by Vidya Jacqueline Heisel. Vidya Jacqueline Heisel, E-RYT 500, SYT, the founder, and director of the Frog Lotus Yoga International, is a master teacher with 40 years of yoga teaching experience, a deep and experienced knowledge of yogic philosophy and meditation, as well as an inspiring practitioner and gifted communicator.

Vidya has developed her own dynamic and compassionate style of Vinyasa Flow yoga, which, though at times vigorous, is always accessible and modifiable to the level of the student. Her classes are creative, fun, and vibrantly unique. In this yoga retreat, your every need will be cared for, you will be very comfortable, your palate will be tantalized, and your expectations of the course will be far exceeded. You will leave the retreat inspired, transformed, and fully-equipped and confident to teach great yoga classes.


History and philosophy of yoga

In this course, you will study both the history of yoga in India in its many incarnations, as well as read and write about yogic philosophy, and contemplate how it can be applied to your daily life. You will discuss in more depth understanding the Eight Limbs of Yoga as well as the Yamas and Niyamas, exploring how to transform your life into the practice of yoga ethics. Vidya generously brings her depth of experience from her years spent in ashrams bringing the spiritual practice to the table in these discussions.


Daily practice of guided meditation and silent meditation. A detailed analysis of meditation and how to do it is given as well as regular question and answer sessions about the practice.

Intensive study and practice of asanas (postures)

There is a two-hour Vinyasa Flow practice with Vidya every morning, which is assisted by her co-teacher and assistant, so everyone receives a lot of help with their practice. There are also opportunities during the course to work on and receive help with specific poses of your choice to progress and further your own practice.

Sanskrit names of yoga postures

During the course, you will learn all the Sanskrit names for the poses studied as well as the Sanskrit names for philosophical concepts.

Alignment and modification of poses

A clear break-down of approximately 80 postures is taught. This includes variations and modifications of poses as well as common misalignments, safety cues, and hands-on assisting with each posture. You will be also shown how to modify for students with injuries or lack of flexibility or strength.


This course has a very comprehensive anatomy section, which is very fun and engaging. The anatomy teachers, Jennilee Toner, Jennifer Yarro, Karen Ring, and Maria Abel are outstanding teachers. They teach applied anatomy so that you will understand how to use it wisely in your teaching. Interactive learning prepares you to create yoga sequences and guide classes that are safe and structurally sound. During this section, you will assess and learn how to understand limitations in your own body, as well as learn how to look at someone and body read.

Yogic diet

You will learn about a traditional yogic diet, as well as eat a well-balanced and nutritious “sattvic” diet yourself. You will be satisfied with the quality and deliciousness of the organic meals Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre provides on this course. Get super healthy whilst delighting your palette!


You will practice different pranayamas or breathing techniques every day and learn how to teach them safely and effectively.

The business of teaching yoga

There will be a three-hour workshop on how to go about finding work as a Yoga Teacher and how to market yourself. There will be time during this session to ask questions. Vidya also offers two coaching sessions free of charge during your first year of teaching in order to help you to become a full-time yoga teacher.

Class Sequencing and planning

You will learn how to create an effective and intelligent sequence and slowly build your class during the training. By the end of the training, you will have sequenced, planned and taught two full 75-minute classes to a small group and have the confidence to go forward on your own. You will be critiqued by the teaching staff and work toward improving your teaching skills.

Hands-on assisting

You will learn how to make hands-on adjustments for every pose you study and you will practice these days with a partner.

Practice teaching

From the very beginning of the course you will start practice teaching poses one by one as you learn them. You will slowly and intelligently build up to teaching sun salutations and keep adding a little more material until you have built a full class and will feel comfortable teaching it. Throughout this process, you are given a lot of support, feedback, and encouragement to give you the tools to become a great teacher.

Deepen and further your own yoga practice

As well as practicing for two hours every day, you will get plenty of personal assistance and help with your poses and encouraged to deepen your practice and to set and achieve goals within it.
