Description

Immersive yoga isn’t just your average yoga retreat. It is an invitation to explore, connect and go deeper through the practice of yoga into your own being. It is open to everyone whether you are just starting out on your yoga journey or well into your own practice. If you can breath, you can do yoga.

We have a program carefully designed to progressively take you deeper, experiencing complete presence, expanding, healing, honouring your soul, whilst at the same time connecting to other like minded people simultaneously on the same frequency.

Set on the magical island of Ibiza by the stunningly iconic bay of Benirras, experience the famous hippy drumming that takes place every evening at sunset, allow the tribal sounds and throbbing energy connect you to the beauty of the island and precious nature that surrounds you.

But, beyond its gorgeous setting and inspiring location, Benirras delivers on a deeply spiritual level, providing a haven of happiness to all those who seek her shores, there we meet, completely immersed…and finally coming home to ourselves.

The program has the perfect balance giving you the right amount of time for practices, self reflection, growth, rest, fun, free time to explore the island plus added unique creative workshops throughout the week.

Ever wanted to attend a Cacao ceremony, learn more about astrology or simply relax in consciousness through yoga nidra and sounds? Then join us on our next Immersive Yoga experience.

Accommodation

Our Immersive Yoga is held at Villa Roca which is a hacienda of Bauhaus design, built by the late Ibizencan architect Erwin Bronner, whose own house is now a museum in Ibiza Town. The villa features terracotta floors, tiered balconies, and open fireplaces. It has a large living room area, and a spacious outside open plan terrace, where guests dine, relax and socialise.

Situated 30 metres above sea level and a 3 minute 180-meter walk to the beach, along a private path. Villa Roca sits in 20 acres of land which is filled with wildflowers, pear, olive, apple, orange, and banana trees. To cap it all, it is nestled amongst a beautiful pine forest.

On clear days, it has almost uninterrupted sunshine from early morning to afternoon. With five large bedrooms, two of which have balconies, and one with its own door leading to the garden.

For an unforgettable experience, book your holiday with Immersive Yoga, where you will start your holiday saying hello to strangers, and leave saying goodbye to friends. You will not find a better located, affordable yoga retreat on the whole of Ibiza.

Teachers

Alison Fuller

ERYT200 – Trained in Ashtanga, Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin and Yoga Nidra

My teachings are grounded in the traditional lineage of Hatha yoga with its deep philosophies and married with the movement of Vinyasa Flow. I honour the traditions while awakening the true potential as an individual in the modern world. I hope for each student to experience a journey that goes beyond the body and pierces deeply into the heart by weaving together asana, mantra, mudra, pranayama, meditation and chanting along with exploring rituals, dance, music and the deep connection with nature..Immersive yoga was created to take you deeper, raise your vibration and to help you truly become aware of how perfect you already are

Jason Veron 

RYT200 – Trained in Sivananda, Hatha, Vinyasa and Ashtanga

My yoga classes are flow based around Hatha and Vinyasa traditions also incorporating Sivananda yoga. In addition, I teach different types of meditation, pranayama (breath work), yoga nidra (yogic sleep) mudras and mindfulness in every day life.

Room options

Villa Room 1
Room 1: Situated at the back of the Villa with its own side entrance and windows that face East, so plenty of morning sunshine as it rises in the morning. No other room in the villa has this aspect. The double doors open out to the large garden which contains many fruit trees. Sit outside the room and view distant pinewood hills and forests. There are large cupboards and wardrobe for storage. This is the only room upstairs in the villa that has its own entrance although it only locks from the inside so guests use it to air the room or sit outside in the sun but not as a door to enter through. There is a washing line close to the room for your private use. The room is next to a bathroom which is shared with Room 3. Pagoda 6 can be seen in the garden from this Room.

Villa Room 2
Room 2: Situated at the back of the villa a very basic bedroom but a favorite of many returning guest and historically tends to get booked up first. Receives the least natural sunlight / daylight as there is only one small window. All the other rooms have ceiling to floor doors that open out of the Villa. This room is enclosed within the Villa and that is the appeal to some guests. The one window has the view of pagoda 3 in the garden and the landscape beyond. The window’s wooden shutters open up to on to the steps that lead up to the yoga deck. The pagoda guests use the steps to access their pagodas. There is a large wardrobe for storage and a full length mirror. The Bathroom is next door and is shared with Room 4.

Villa Room 3 (with balcony)
Large ceiling to floor windows containing french doors opening on to your own balcony and possible to step off your balcony on to the terrace where guests eat the daily meal. Situated at the front of the villa overlooking the garden, driveway and the distant road that heads in and out of Benirras. There are large wardrobes for storage. There are two ways of entering this room, from the terrace and from inside of the villa. You can book this room as two single beds or one double bed.

Villa Room 4 (with balcony)
Ceiling to floor windows containing french doors that lead on to own private balcony. Situated at the front of the villa overlooking terraced garden, pagoda 1 ,stairs to enter the villa and the main terrace where guests eat the daily meal. Pagoda 2 is situated on the roof directly above this room. There is a large wardrobe for storage. Room 4 shares a bathroom with Room 2.

Villa Room 5
On ground floor level overlooking Villa Nova and its gardens. Directly above room 5 is the communal terrace where the daily meal is served. The main part of the villa is upstairs from room 5. This is the only accommodation in Villa Roca with en-suite shower room. It offers from a communal terrace its own entrance with double glass doors and non opening floor to ceiling windows. Next to this room is the laundry and store room. The room does not receive much direct sunlight due to its North facing aspect. If you like some privacy this is the room to book.

Pagoda Garden
If you want to feel closer to nature, why not try one of our delightful pagodas , in the garden of Villa Roca. It has easy access to the yoga deck and its facilities include a really refreshing, powerful shower. By day, you can surround yourself with the sounds of countless birds, including robins, hawks, swifts, sparrows, and gulls, and feel the sea air fill and clean your lungs.

At night you can send yourself to sleep listening to the gentle sound of nature and the sweet scent of pine trees. If you live in a town or city, you will be taken aback by its silence, save the calming sounds of crickets and feel of the breeze. On moonlit nights you can see the shimmering trees and fauna cast their shadows in what can only be described as magical.

On clear summer nights, you will recognize the many constellations, with the Milky Way spread across the sky like magic dust, and if you are really lucky, you can see shooting stars. After a night or two, you will forget all about the traffic, noise and pollution of the big city and almost imagine you are back in time, when people lived simply, spending their lives amongst nature.

Pagoda 1
Traditional Balinese Pagoda hut.

Situated in the garden on a terrace high above the Villa in a row of three pagodas overlooking the valley, and pine-clad hills.3 sides of the pagoda are nestled into the cutaway hillside. North East Facing. It has its own electricity. Underneath are lockable draws for luggage. Fairy lights illuminate the interior, window shutters on two sides, and one plug socket. Two single beds and can be made into a double.

Pagoda 2
Situated on the roof of the villa above Room 4, close to the yoga space with views over the garden and valley.

Wooden window shutters, single beds, the interior is surrounded with fairy light and there is one electrical point. Many of the therapies such as massage that are offered at the retreat take place on the yoga space outside of yoga class hours. This space is next to Pagoda 2. The wall of the pagoda that faces East is solid wood. The 2 sides with wooden shutter windows look towards North West and North. This pagoda and Number 3 are the only pagodas to receive wi-fi.

Pagoda 3
Traditional Balinese Pagoda hut.

Closest pagoda to the villa positioned on a terrace in the garden. It is close to Room 4 and the stairs that lead to the yoga space.
Large underfloor lockable storage draws. Sleeps two with views of the garden.
Use of outdoor shower facilities & toilets. Pagoda Guests are only allowed to use the Kitchen & Living Room inside Villa Roca, all other rooms and facilities are for Villa Roca guests only. You can receive wifi from this pagoda and there is a power point. The wooden shutter window doors open up and face North. The back of the pagoda is nestled into the cutaway hillside that has been brick walled.

Pagoda 5 The Queen
Traditional Balinese Pagoda hut.

Situated in the highest position of all the pagodas built on large concrete stilts.

The best views are to be had from this pagoda and it is the favourite of many returning guests but is the furthest from the villa. Open the large wooden shutters and look toward the East and watch the sunrise.

The Queen Pagoda has two single beds. One electrical point. Fairy lights illuminating interior.

Large lockable storage draws under pagoda floor.

If there were to be a downside to this pagoda it is the fact that there is no flat ground to place a chair to enjoy the scenery, the steps up to it are also steep and more suited to the outdoor type of person wearing a sturdy shoe. For the chance to sit outside your Pagoda choose 1 or 2.

Universal Points
The wifi only works in the Villa, on the terrace and in Pagoda 2 and 3. Drop down lockable shutters block the sunlight and give extra privacy in all pagodas but are openable and we recommend you open them in high season to get any evening breeze. Pagodas can be chilly at night between October and May.

One hot water outdoor shower, one cold outdoor shower, two sinks and a toilet service the entire pagoda garden. Use of villa toilets and shower rooms not permitted. All toilets on site are not connected to main drainage which means we like many villas have a septic tank so waste drains by soakaway, this means it does not accept toilet paper.

We kindly ask that 95% of the paper you use is put in a bin provided in the toilet area which is emptied once a day. Towels are not supplied but can be ordered at check out when booking or by asking on arrival. We suggest that you bring one pair of walking shoes/trainers for walking along the garden paths but not necessary for Pagoda 2 or 3. Pathways are partially lit by solar lights only, please bring a torch.

There are two lockable draws underneath each pagoda, we hire out padlocks for free but ask for a deposit best bring your own padlock for ease. The villa is only available for tea and coffee making plus internet use during the hours of 8 am to 10 pm. All meals are served on the terrace of Villa Roca. If you are traveling alone and we do not find you a ‘pagoda room-mate’ you will have the pagoda to yourself.

Beds are made with fresh bed linen and pagodas are cleaned on Saturdays only leaving week-day bed making for the guests to do. Only the outdoor shower block and communal area are cleaned each day. We do not make your beds each day. The pagodas are usually our first accommodation to get booked up all season long, reserve early to avoid disappointment.

What past guests have said

“I’m relatively new to yoga and was looking for a non-competitive, authentic and focused yoga class to help me explore the natural strength and flow of my body. I was lucky enough to experience Alison’s hatha class on a retreat in Spain, which was beyond what I had hoped for. It brought me peace, joy and a newfound respect / understanding for yoga.”

“I went to Alison’s retreat in Ibiza and fell in love with Yoga. I absolutely loved all her classes and have never experienced relaxation as deeply as I did in every one of her classes.”

“Whether you’re looking to dip your toes into the world of yoga for the first time, or you may have practised for years, Alison makes sure all levels and ages are welcomed and feel comfortable. Alison is a fantastic teacher, patient and kind”
