Carol Murphy
I started Green Lotus Yoga teacher training school in 2007. Since then I have graduated over 200 teachers from my training throughout Ireland and abroad. I have taught yoga in London, California, India, South Africa, Morocco and Spain.

I like to teach Vinyasa style yoga as mindful, strengthening, slow, deep, breath-centered movement, creating various forms and threads to keep things alive. I am practising yoga 27 years and teaching 20 years. My background is in Iyengar, Ashtanga and Vinyasa,. I am currently finishing up studies in Neuro-muscular therapy, which is a form of physical therapy that works with kinetic chains and acknowledges the interconnected nature of the body, just like yoga does…

In addition to the above, I have 2 degrees in philosophy <3. I have studied Ayurveda and yoga therapy in India. I am a raw vegan educator (although not 100% vegan or raw), a qualified sports massage therapist, a trained Art of Being Tantra instructor, a qualified Trance Dance teacher and I practice and study the Reiki Tummo Method, which combines open heart meditations with reiki and kundalini healing work.

These gifts created solidity and ground from which I can rise and fly, roots and wings, creating safety, balance, expansion and joy in my life and for this I am 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. We also grow organic vegetables and fruits and keep chickens for eggs.


Suryalila Retreat Centre is a world class centre nestled serenely in a large open valley in the foothills of the Sierra de Grazelema. 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.
Accommodation prices also include 3 gourmet vegetarian meals a day, free tea, coffee, fruit and drinking water. Full use of the facilities including pool, internet, yoga mat and props.

Tent ‘Glamping’
Camp in style ‘Glamping’ is short for glamorous camping. Glamp in a beautiful and spacious bell tent, each large enough to stand up in. The glamping tent offers 2 comfortable twin beds, a chest of drawers and hanging rail. The tents overlook the stunning views of the foothills of the Sierra Grazalema. There are four compost toilets and one conventional toilet which are shared by the tents and three hot showers in the clamping area.

8 Bed Dorm
The spacious dorm rooms have 8 beds per room with shared bathrooms. They are beautifully appointed and comfortable. The beautiful eight-person dorm is in Casa Saraswati.

4 Bed Mini- Dorm
The four-person mini-dorm is located upstairs in Casa Govinda and shares a bathroom with the twin room in Govinda. Our other four-person dormitory is located on the ground floor of Casa Ganesha, our main house, and has its own en suite bathroom.

Staying in a lovely, spacious yurt is a unique experience. There is a delightful twin or triple yurt fully furnished, with all of the comforts of our other rooms and a back-to-nature ambience. The yurt is located in our “glamping” area overlooking the ancient olive grove and has access to three hot showers, one toilet and 4 eco toilets right beside it. It has a wood burning fire stove for the colder months.

It has its own bathroom and overlooks the lovely Plaza de las Naranjas. It has access to Casa Govinda’s large, comfortable sitting room and kitchen.

Reading books

We advise 2 years practice before embarking on a Yoga TTC. This is enough time to give students a firm foundation for the work involved on a TTC and also gives people a base to reach the level expected for graduation. Sometimes people achieve this foundation after a year or so of practice; there are always exceptions, but as a general, we recommend 2 years. If you are unsure if you have enough experience, please contact us. An application form for the TTC is on our website and needs to completed.

A deposit of 800 euros will secure your place and the remainder of payments made at least 6 weeks before the course starts. This deposit is non-refundable. If for any reason your circumstances change and you cannot do the TTC as planned, Suryalia will take 50% of your deposit and the other 50% can be transferred to any other Green Lotus Yoga TTC within 3 years
