Want to join us?


We are so happy and proud to be announcing our second Purna Yoga retreat at Centro Santillan! Our 2025 retreat is all about Finding Your Flow. Experience Yoga as a practice of nurturing feelings of inner beauty and harmony that supports living your dharma without drama. Discover and explore daily practices to bring the deep relaxation and rejuvenation that you’ll experience on this retreat back into your daily life, supporting re-entry into home life with ease, grace, and calm.

There is something special that happens on a retreat. It is a different type of container than a class, a workshop, or even a training. When you have a group of people who are living, eating, and practicing together, it fosters a sense of community and group exploration that is outside of the usual mode of busy, daily living. Retreats give us the opportunity to step away from the habitual – the people we usually hang out with, the food we typically eat, the daily routine we tend to follow – and reconnect with our self away from the distraction of “life back home.”

Join us and discover what happens when you unplug from your daily routine. Discover a sense of joy and exploration as you embark on a yogic adventure in a new, fresh location that reveals new spaces inside yourself as well. Let’s explore the beauty of the Andalusia region of Spain and the inner beauty of our hearts together!

The venue is stunning, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and absolutely beautiful. The combination of Letitia and Mariken as meditation and asana and criss crossing in their experience and powerful teachings was amazing. – 2024 past participant

Letitia has been dreaming of hosting a yoga retreat at Centro Santillan since 2018! When she and Mariken Fliervoet – whom she met during her 2,000-Hour training – went on a retreat together in Italy in 2019, they started talking about how they could host retreats together in beautiful locations, collaborating as fellow Purna Yoga instructors while adding in Mariken’s background in acupuncture and energy work. Join us at this beautiful retreat center for our second trip to Spain!

Only 35 minutes from Malaga airport, Santillan is an extensive countryside olive cortijo with magnificent gardens overlooking the Mediterranean sea. Surrounded by hills and valleys, you are immersed in peaceful tropical gardens and surrounding hills. Santillan has one outdoor and two indoor studios, a salt-water pool, and 20 en-suite bedrooms. Explore captivating Andalusia, with enchanting cities like Malaga, Seville, Cordoba, and Granada within reach as well as beautiful beaches.

Every room is ensuite with either a balcony or terrace with views down the valley to the sea or to the tropical gardens. Each room is individually furnished and has a desk, ample cupboard space, a separate bathroom, air-conditioning and heating.

The cooks at Santillan Retreat enjoy sharing their popular Spanish-influenced healthy Mediterranean cuisine, catering for vegetarian, vegan and raw-food diets, and for genuine food allergies and intolerances, such as gluten-free and dairy-free. Santillan offers breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as tea and light snacks. Meals are usually served buffet style. Santillan offers numerous indoor and outdoor all-year round dining areas.

Produce is grown in their own organic vegetable gardens or sourced from local farmers. Avocado, orange, lemon, mango, apple, mandarin and tropical fruit trees offer their gifts for much of the year, and they keep free-range chickens for fresh eggs daily. Pick your own oranges for your morning juice, or explore the farm and horticulture anytime.

Santillán’s two spacious studios are fully equipped with a complete range of professional yoga teaching and practice props. The golden aura designed Carlo Classic studio looks down the valley to the sea, and has a 24-station Great Yoga Wall, wooden floor, wood-pellet burning stove, infra-red panels, and an extensive collection of yoga props. The new outdoor Garden Sala is an outdoor covered sala with views all around to gardens, the valley & hills and on to the sea. Recently built in the same style at the Patio Andaluz, this glorious and versatile space, with variable-coloured lighting and access to yoga props, can be used for outdoor classes and shaded relaxation.

You owe it to yourself to participate in this very special self care retreat. The change is remarkable. – 2024 past participant
