Balearic Bliss: Walking, Forest Bathing and Yoga Retreat
Join us on the breath-taking island of Ibiza and experience the revitalising and rejuvenating power of yoga, walking and Ayurvedic wisdom in a true retreat for the senses. We will be exploring the island in a series of walks, enjoying beautiful vantage points, stunning coastline and some of Ibiza's hidden treasures. During the week guests will also engage in peaceful and restorative yoga and immersion in outdoor meditation.
Staying in a luxury private villa in the peaceful North East of Ibiza, with lush tropical gardens – fragrant fruit trees, water features, swimming pool and ornamental fish pond, the house and grounds are the perfect environment to truly relax. Designed by the famous architect Blakstad, the comfortable and luxurious Finca offers the best in traditional design along with thoughtfully styled interiors and luxury furnishings.
Add to this plenty of downtime to relax, unwind or simply enjoy the local villages and tourist spots, and you have a week of bliss in an idyllic location. Ibiza in March is a perfect place to enjoy some spring sunshine and take on some beautiful walks on this undiscovered island.
Here are a few things you may not know about Ibiza:
Some spots on the Island are so sacred they are now protected and have been named as UNESCO World heritage sites
Ibiza emanates a magical energy mostly because it is grounded on a bed of crystals
Ibiza is opposite the unique beauty of Es Vedra, the third most magnetic point in the world
Ibiza is often confused as being a purely ‘party’ Island. However, there is a vast array of beauty, peace and tranquillity to be discovered here and what better way to experience its treasures and natural beauty than immersing yourself in it via a series of stunning walks that will take in a variety of coastal and inland scenery. Led by local and experienced guides, you will experience an Ibiza far removed from the holiday brochures and guidebooks! Couple this with forest bathing/outdoor meditation sessions and al-fresco picnics in secluded spots (or stopping at a traditional Ibizan restaurant en route for a mouthwatering lunch), this is a walking retreat like no other!
Our retreats don’t just provide a week of rest, rejuvenation and bliss. They are also about individual empowerment. To facilitate this, our retreats include a series of relaxed and informal workshops on the lifestyle wisdom traditions of Ayurveda and crucially, how to integrate this wisdom into your daily life to allow for the optimisation of physical, emotion and spiritual health long after the retreat ends.
During the week guests will also be able to enjoy yoga with Kate Gardener. Kate is an established teacher on the Island teaching both studio and private classes. Kate's style is warm and friendly, teaching a mix of styles of yoga from gentle flow to chilled restorative yoga. Tailoring the style she teaches to the energy of her class, Kate's mantra is to inspire inner transformation with love and this comes through in her teachings.
We look forward to seeing you in sunny Ibiza for a week of bliss that will empower a lifetime of wellness.
