Escape to the beautiful Balearic Islands for one of these inspirational wellbeing holidays with yoga, meditation, hiking, fitness, nutritious food and plenty of relaxation time.

Here’s our recommended guide to wellbeing holidays, retreats and spa hotels in Ibiza and Mallorca.

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: Available from April – October (4 – 7 nights)

It’s not something that is easy to define, but ‘to glow’ is to reach a shining & 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 & 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!.

Become your own energy master for life, both on and off the mat. Re-ignite your inner fire, your passions and your creativity and get excited about life again, with a renewed sense of clarity and power.

On arrival, lie back and receive a diagnostic and revitalising full-body holistic massage with one of our world-class therapists, followed by a Wellness Consultation to help you bring focus to your goals for your time with us.

Nutritionist-designed revitalising cuisine will enable you to feel light, clear and energised, with an interactive nutritional workshop to ensure that you can develop the perfect dietary focus and ‘food-wardrobe’ to optimise your post-retreat diet with ease.

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.

Designed for people who find themselves over-thinking or over-analysing, or who are prone to stress and fear they are heading for burn-out, and for those seeking to heal trauma or heartbreak. The Harmonise Retreat is the perfect environment to disconnect from the over-stimulation of 21st century living and bring your life back into true harmony; mentally, physically and spiritually.

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.

The 21st century sees us constantly plugged in and always digitally available; we invite you to step into stillness, switch off your phone and tune back in. 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.

Located in Santa Eulalia, Ibizazen is an 18th century former small farm house which has been meticulously restored in and converted into a small private luxury boutique hotel, offering comfortable and modern accommodations with a warm bohemian touch.

The name ‘Ibizazen’ comes from ‘Ibiza’ on the one hand and ‘Zazen’ on the other hand. The aim of the ‘Zazen’ state of mind is ‘just sitting’. Letting words, ideas, images and thoughts pass by without actually getting involved in them. A big red Buddha greets you at the door and there’s an eclectic mix of modern art along with recycled artefacts and funky furniture.

This is the place to retreat in tranquil surroundings and spend your days lying on one of the colourful and comfy Balinese day beds. The Asian inspired rooms come with kimino robes to lounge around in which beats your average white dressing gown.
