About Human Design
47afd867-596e-49bb-8866-4606d0461c52.jpg

Human Design is an holistic synthesis of ancient and modern sciences that has proven to be an extraordinary tool for human understanding. Based on Western Astrology, Chinese I-Ching, Tree of Life from Kabbalah, Chakras, and Quantum Physics, it uses your date, time, and place of birth to give your genetic blueprint, a roadmap of who you are and who you are designed to be. 

After a Human Design reading you will get crystal clear on:

  • Your unique gifts and purpose

  • How you can best exert your energy and make decisions

  • Which strategies to use to get into alignment

  • Many useful insights  to navigate your life and relationships with more ease 

Human Design gives you a language to describe things we sometimes cannot describe on our own. It shows you your unique essence, who you really are at your deepest level beyond any levels of social conditioning. 

It gives you full permission to be who you truly are and own your power.

The Venue

Suryalila

Suryalila is a little piece of heaven on earth. Nestled in a large open valley at the foothills of the Sierra de Grazalema, about an hour from Seville, this majestic mountain range can be seen looming large on the horizon behind Suryalila. A striking part of the natural beauty of the property is the breathtaking vista extending in all directions: rolling hills, fields of sunflowers, and lakes. The sense of vastness and expansiveness is very uplifting.

The retreat sits on 45 acres of land and is still a working olive farm with over 350 olive trees. Suryalila 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.

It is home of Danyadara, a permaculture farm with serves the Suryalila kitchen with loads of organic vegetables and fruits. 

Suryalila has three Yoga halls.

+ The Om Dome is the most impressive yoga hall in Europe

+ The beautiful Ganesha Yoga Shala 

+ The Eco building Moon Shala

Suryalila also has a beautiful salt water pool and an eco- sauna.

With breathtaking views of the countryside and a Yoga dome that overlooks the rolling hills, this is the ultimate place to enjoy some peace, tranquility and fully recharge!

Meet Your Hosts

I finished two different 200-hour Yoga Teacher Trainings and the advanced 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training. I'm fully registered and certified by Yoga Alliance as RYT-500.  ​On top of that, I'm a retreat addict! Understanding the importance of looking after my mental health and general well-being, over the past years, I have been attending retreats at least twice a year. There is something very special about sharing an experience with like-minded strangers and finding back your inner strength and balance.
 

A key factor I have learned is that a smaller group makes for a better experience, so spots are limited! My mission in this retreat is to create the kind of retreats that I am myself looking for. A sanctuary where, for a few days, you will be cherished as I share the magic toolbox of yoga and Tradicional Chinese Medicine with you!

Almost two decades ago, I took my first yoga class tired and stiff from the corporate 9 to 5, I was hooked on the way I felt -more grounded, happier, stronger, and healthier.​ A journalism major in college and former oriental art PR & publicist, my inquisitive nature gave way to a strong desire for an alternative lifestyle and self-inquiry which turned into a lifelong passion. In past years, I certified in different disciplines like Hatha, Vinyasa, Meridian Yin Yoga, Acupressure, Traditional Chinese Massage, and Chair/Senior Yoga.

RETREAT HOST

Kate Petrova

RETREAT CO-HOST

IMG_3326.JPG

My journey started when I left home to study abroad at the age of 18 and since then, I have lived, worked, and studied in France, England, Bali, Canada, Zambia, Colombia, and for the past 5 years, I’ve been living in Spain. During my years of self-discovery,  I got degrees in Sociology & Psychology, International Relations, Nutrition & Naturopathy. 

I am absolutely fascinated and obsessed with human beings. Over the years, I have studied Sociology, Psychology, Yoga, Nutrition, Naturopathy and Coaching to get more understanding of how we as humans function, and how to help ourselves to feel good and function properly. In recent years I became more interested in the emotional and energetic components of our beings, as I saw clearly while working as a Nutritionist that in order to be healthy, we need not only to heal on a physical level but also on emotional and energetic ones.

This is when I discovered Human Design. Human Design is a wonderful tool to learn about yourself, to understand how you function best, to see clearly who you are under the layers of conditioning, who you were designed to be, and what is your purpose in this lifetime. I combine Human Design with coaching so that I can give you very practical tools in order to transform your life, as I strongly believe that knowledge without integration is useless. I combine my readings with a small cacao ceremony to help you to be more open and receptive during the session.

Words of love

An overall amazing experience! Suryalila is a magical place! I loved that we also learnt how to use balls for self massage and myofascial release. So much gratitude and love to Sakshi for her knowledge and beautiful energy that she has shared with us during these past days! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

I. Luna

I started going to yoga a few months ago, I’ve never been before and Sakshi is so helpful and friendly, I never feel judged or like I’m doing anything wrong, and not only do I feel more relaxed and grounded, but a lot of the muscle pain in my neck I have been struggling with has eased, I cannot recommend her highly enough!

M. Kassim

Oh what a great revelation! I could not even imagine the territory that the practice of Yin Yoga has opened up in me! It is the first time in my life that I have achieved such a deep level of connection with my tissues and especially with my internal organs. The work of Sakshi is impeccable!
