10 nourishing, nurturing and inspiring retreats to soothe your spirit this Autumn

As we head away from the brightness of the summer and towards the the gorgeous colours and crisp air of the new season, here are 10 nourishing, nurturing and inspiring retreats to soothe your spirit this Autumn.

Ibiza Autumn Yoga & Hiking Retreat, 6th – 11th November


This Autumn Retreat will welcome guests to a stunning cliff-side property in Ibiza’s rural North with Yoga teacher Suzanne Faith. Suzanne’s teachings encourage students to dissolve barriers, to dance and move through a resourceful practice in order to cultivate more intimacy with breath, body, mind and most importantly to each other. Her classes are devotional, dynamic and diverse…bold, mighty and introspective, weaving progressive sequencing, anchored in ancient teachings, and woven to attune to modern duty.

The yoga will be hosted on a custom built wooden deck over the sea (weather permitting.) Native guide Toby Clarke will lead guests on hikes to beautiful local spots. This immersion in nature will help guests to drop out of their minds and into their bodies leading to deep mindfulness and relaxation. There will also be a bodywork session for every guest with extras such as personal training, cranio-sacral therapy, acupuncture, facials, manicures and pedicures are available on request.

Ibiza is grounded on a bed of crystals and thought to be one of the most healing places in the world. This is a truly magical location perched on a cliff in tropical gardens with expansive sea-views and the sunset every evening.
