IBIZA 2019 YOGA RETReat

INTRODUCTION

 

Come and recharge in one of the most magical places in the world.

This retreat will address ‘balance’ in all its aspects, from the yoga and breath-work, through to the range of uplifting and relaxing activities and most importantly nourishing ourselves with delicious nutritious plant based food. We will gently learn how to take control of our breathing through our yoga practise, which will in turn give us the tools to shape our lives. Over our week together we will be rebalancing the body and mind connection through movement and the flow of breath, reconnecting our inner worlds to the world around us. Through our daily asanas we will strengthen and realign our bodies. And through healthy food we will allow the flow of energy to both cleanse and rejuvenate our digestive systems.

The ‘white island’ is simply enchanting and at its best in September. The beaches are phenomenal, the water is warm and the island is at peace after the busy summer months. Our sanctuary, a beautiful finca in the Ibizan country side is the perfect base for you to press pause, unwind and let go.


Tapping into the transformative energies that the island of Ibiza is famous for, we will go back to basics and engage with the opposing elements Yin & Yang, sun and moon, heating and cooling.  Every morning we will start with a dynamic ashtanga vinyasa flow based practice (suitable for all levels) activating our Yang energy whilst in the late afternoon we will enjoy a more relaxing style of yoga, activating our Yin energies. In the evening we will end the day with a guided meditation or yoga Nidra practice to lead you into the nourishment of deep sleep, blissfully at peace.


All the yoga sessions are suitable for complete beginners to intermediate. Mays & Alexandra will both work with you to ensure you get the maximum benefit out of the classes. Every person attending will also receive a 30 minute nutritional consultation with Mays & a 30 minute shiatsus/craniosacral treatment with Alexandra to nourish your every need.


Food is life. What we put in our body directly impacts on our health and wellbeing. We will be offering healthy, plant based, nutritious meals that will invigorate and leave you full of energy & life. Think fresh locally sourced ingredients, living nutritious foods, yummy juices & vibrantly delicious dinners all made with our magical secret ingredients: passion and love. As a qualified nutritional therapist as well as yoga teacher Mays has emphasised the importance of including a nutritionally balanced nourishing menu and will be on hand throughout to answer any nutritional queries you may have about the meal plans.
