Ibiza

Retreats

Ibiza is one of our favourite Islands in the world! As soon as you step foot off the plane you can feel the healing energies work their magic….and that’s even before the retreat starts!

It’s the perfect place for yoga, meditation, detox, wellbeing, beaching, guided walks, nurturing, unwinding, relaxing, pampering, spa time and plenty of YOU time!

Yoga, Energy and Natural Wellbeing Retreats

Dates: 10 – 17 August, 17 – 24 August

Ibiza retreats

It’s not something that is easy to define, but ‘to glow’ is to reach a shining and inspiring state of consciousness; an internal understanding between your inner self and your physical body, which exudes and radiates, from the inside out, that shows a positive effect on every part of you, in body, mind and spirit.

Come with us on our new Glow retreat – a wonderful and satisfying journey – where a special kind of magic takes place on your yoga mat. Whether you are fairly new to yoga, or a more accomplished yogi looking to deepen and enhance your practice, we will show you how to connect to your glow!

The focus of this Yoga, Energy and Natural Wellbeing retreat is to allow you to take time and space to hear the voice of your heart. Feel the glow radiate from within to reveal a new you – inspired, energetic and shining, inside and out.

Get your glow back! Sometimes, the daily grind and general pressures of life can leave us feeling depleted. The natural wellbeing retreat is all about recharging your batteries, re-booting your energy system and reclaiming your sparkle!.

Your natural wellbeing retreat experience is completed with back-to-life coaching, for you to create new “sustainable energy” strategies with personalised yoga and meditation practices to empower your life.

Through mindfulness and meditation practices to train the “monkey mind” and flowing, therapeutic yoga for all abilities, you will ease relentless mind-chatter and tune into the quieter voice of your inner-guidance system.

Bring the art of mindfulness into your yoga practise, with breath-work and meditation to reconnect to your power-centre and inner guide. Feel new passions and purpose emerge, empowering you to create a more sustainable love-life-work equilibrium, and step forward into a more harmonious chapter of your life. This is for you if you are feeling burned out, tired out or in need of stillness.

A personal program of massages and therapies will help you to let go of stress and tensions and practical life coaching techniques to take away with you, will transform your fears and anxieties, whilst daily meditations and evening yin and restorative yoga rejuvenate your peace and clarity. You will then feel fresh insights arise, with holistic life coaching and spiritual counselling to help this process further.

And 1:1 yoga therapy and wellness coaching will empower you with a compelling daily practice and a new sense of personal boundaries, so you can feel equipped and excited about your return to reality.
