At Villa Sumaya, we’ve created a sacred and inspiring atmosphere that offers a space to sink in, relax and reconnect with the freedom of inner peace. Whether you will be practicing yoga, meditation, writing, creativity or movement, our center has the nourishing setting and necessary equipment to support your program.
Our spacious group rooms are designed to accommodate and encourage dynamic gatherings. Simple, eclectic décor with panoramic views, hardwood floors, thatched roofs and elegant altar spaces set the tone for deepening practices. Both temples are equipped with yoga props, meditation cushions, bolsters, straps, blocks, blankets, and sound systems. A small props closet and two bathrooms complete the functionality of these sacred sanctuaries.
