5 day Yoga, Meditation, Pranayama, Dance Retreat at the beautiful Casa Solara in Ibiza
26 – 31 August 2016
The Island of Ibiza is one of my favourite places on the planet and holds a very dear place in my heart – I did my original training here back in the nineties and I feel it to be one of my spiritual homes. The unspoilt north of the Island is particularly beautiful, with pine-covered forests, rolling hills, fields of ancient olive trees and crystal clear waters. The sweeping landscape perfectly reflects the Tanit Goddess energy which dominates the sacred ‘White Isle.’
I have been given the wonderful opportunity to host a retreat at a magical retreat centre run by a very dear friend, Solara, who has always been a source of inspiration to me and who will lead a special guided meditation on the first night. Casa Solara is a light and airy villa with beautiful countryside views, nestled in the unspoilt Can Guasch – Atzaro valley northwest of Santa Eularia. The centre has beautiful guest bedrooms with private terraces overlooking the hills, plus a yurt & Morrocan-style tent in the lovely garden. (Please say on booking if you would like to stay outside.) The centre also boasts an indoors meditation/ workshop room, outdoor dining/ chilling areas and a stunning yoga/dance platform with shade roof in the garden.

The retreat will commence on Friday evening with a two hour practice followed by supper, and end on Wednesday morning after brunch. There will be an early morning guided meditation and pranayama session, followed by a 2 hour Asana session and then a lovely brunch in the outdoor dining area. One of our morning sessions will be on Aguas Blancas beach at sunrise at followed by a picnic brunch. In the early evening there will be a 2 hour practice followed by dinner. 1 or 2 Shakti Dance sessions will be offered in the evening.
