Vidya is the soul of Danyadara and visionary of the project. As the Director of Suryalila Retreat Centre, Vidya has always taken pride in loving the land and treating it with care and respect. She strives to create beautiful spaces for guests to enjoy and also wants to move towards more self-sufficiency.
Through her immersion in yogic philosophy, Vidya is very aware of how our actions need to contribute to the greater good – that is the main motivation behind the creation of Danyadara.
Emilio has been living a simple life in the countryside for over a decade, cultivating the land and actively practicing agroecology. The search for a healthier and more respectful life choices with Mother Earth led him to train in Yoga, Meditation, Health and vegetarian cooking, organic farming and mindfulness.
Together with his partner he founded the project Terrasukha, a mindful farm where a self-sustaining life was practiced in connection with earth-body-mind and spirit, until the universe presented him with to opportunity to manage Danyadara.
His objective is to create a 'green lung', a 'school of flavours of the earth' and a native forest that recreates and shelters the ecosystem that 100 years ago reigned in this region of Spain
