Discover the magic of Ibiza – Yoga and Walking retreat
I am so excited to be teaming up with the incredible Toby from Walking Ibiza to bring you an unmissable opportunity to experience the beautiful island of Ibiza like never before.
Think Ibiza is all about party’s and clubbing? You couldn’t be further from the truth! Over this week we’ll show you the beauty, the healing, the magic, the peace, the myths and the legends of this sacred island.
Ibiza is the island of Yin and Yang with many different sides. During this retreat you will discover the hidden Ibiza, the secret bays with crystal clear water for swimming, pine scented forests paths, find hidden quartz crystals and witness the famous magical sunsets from secret locations. This is all wrapped up with wonderful Yoga to relax and ground you, guided meditations, home cooked delicious food and great company in a luxury private villa.
The Yoga will help you tune into Ibiza’s magical healing vibes and either energise you for the day and walking adventure ahead or stretch out and relax you after a day of exploring. There will also be guided meditations at some of Ibiza’s most sacred spots.
The Walks will take you right back to nature as you discover Ibiza’s rustic beauty and rugged charm. Discover secret beaches fringed by crystal clear waters, hidden paths and seemingly never ending wonders. Open yourself up to a whole new side of Ibiza as you soak in not just the natural beauty but also the sacred sites and magical energy that make Ibiza one of the most unique islands in the world. Each walk will be approx. 2-3 hours.
Our home for the week will be a beautiful country house in the north west of the island, set on 80,000 sq metres of private ancient gardens and terraced woodland with stunning Balearic sea views. A refuge of peace and tranquility quietly serving as a base for some of Ibiza’s finest beaches just 2kms away, yet only 25 minutes from the centre of Ibiza – a Unesco World Heritage site.
The food will be fresh, healthy, home cooked and packed full of nutrition to help keep up your energy and fill you with goodness! Every day there will be a delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner, some days these will be enjoyed at picturesque spots on the walks.
