“These delicious retreats are run by Larah and Susie, who we swear can deal with anything from a broken heart to a career meltdown.”
Ibiza Retreats is one of the leading yoga and holistic wellness retreat destinations in Europe with over a decade of experience creating and facilitating group and private retreats in Ibiza. This month they celebrate their ten year anniversary with the opening of a luxurious and stylish new retreat destination, Can Luminosa, modern yet nestled high in the ancient hills of the heart of the island.
Ibiza Retreats hosts over 30 group retreats throughout the year along as well as private, bespoke and corporate retreats with an established team comprising of some of the world’s best yoga teachers and therapists. The majority of the retreats will take place at the stunning and newly renovated hilltop finca, Can Luminosa with additional further retreats held at Casa Lakshmi Luz, a tranquil and bohemian Atroturisimo finca in the middle of the Ibizan countryside near Santa Eularia.
More than simply yoga retreats, the programmes at Ibiza Retreats are designed to nurture all parts of mind, body and soul. Fully supported and delicately programmes offer gentle, yet profound and sustainable transformation. There is a range of retreats designed to suit all needs: from stressed out city workers needing to rest and restore (The Bliss Sanctuary) to women’s empowerment retreats for those looking to reconnect to your natural cycles and rhythms (Nourish); Mindfulness, therapeutic yoga and Lifestyle Detox retreats (Harmonise) and 21st century over-active, mind, Retreats to help you get your glow back (Get Glowing) to retreats with the added elements of fitness, nutrition and self care (Rejuvenate).
All retreats invite digital detox, with a “phone-s” altar on the white-salt of the island to eliminate the EMFS (that overcharge your system). Each programme sets out to empower guests with wellness coaching and a holistic toolkit of vital techniques for self-care, enabling them to maintain their own health and happiness when they return home.
New for 2018, as a great alternative for those not ready to embrace the full group retreat experience, Ibiza Retreats are launching Yoga Bed and Brunch– a ‘style it yourself’ 7 night retreat hosted at for independent travellers wanting daily yoga in a lovely surroundings along with the freedom to explore the island or take things at their own pace without the structure of a group retreat. There is a yoga deck for you to self-practise and enjoy meditation and a delicious brunch is supplied every day. Therapies can be booked whilst you are there and a host is on hand.
What happens on a retreat?
The Ibiza Retreats experience is all about experiential learning. From meditation, breath work and yoga in the morning the day unfolds through to time spent on personal development, or enjoying therapies or treatments. In the evening you have a chance to take part in experiential workshops including MET workshops, sensory yoga and meditation, sound healing, (with chocolate!) and Kundalini and Qui Gong sessions. There is also time to explore hidden beaches and some of the beautiful scenery the Island has to offer.
New for 2018 THIS YEAR at Ibiza Retreats there will be a deepened focus on Earthing. In an age where we are consumed by digital devices clients will be encouraged to digitally detox and get back to their natural self, reconnecting with nature through barefoot forrest walking, sitting in hammocks and simply learning to exhale. Quiet peaceful reflection is encouraged around the grounds with hilltop teepees and dedicated areas to relax and just breathe.
Co-founder Larah Davis says “Barefoot bliss will be your mantra as you walk, in mindfulness, on the warmth earth of the fragrant pine forests, relax into hammocks to reconnect with the birdsong and exhale all stress into the ether, as you inhale the stunning mountain-top views over the Island and nearby Formentera’.
