LOCATION

This retreat will be held at the Balearic Islands in Mallorca, Spain. In the heart of the Mediterra- nean, the Balearic Islands have their own unique touch and character.
Mallorca, the largest one, offers excellent hiking in the mountains, lovely old towns, beautiful beaches, and cliffs plunging into clear water. The sunny climate combined with the beautiful scenery makes it a perfect getaway for a peaceful and relaxed holiday. The soothing energy from the mountains makes Mallorca a perfect place to practice yoga while merging yourself with the beautiful surroundings.

VENUE

During this retreat you will stay either in a private or a double room at a typical Mallorcan house. This typical Mallorcan manor house from the 16th Century is one of the oldest houses in Mallor- ca. In 2000 the nca was remodeled with great attention to detail and 2015 renovated again. The beach is only a few kilometers away and the rustic, but luxurious, villa is a perfect place for reading, relaxing, or just enjoying the peace and quiet of nature. All the rooms have an en-suite bathroom and some of them have their own terrace or patio.

“Thanks a lot for the experience you gift me with. A part from the practice itself, that was enlightening, I really enjoyed the atmosphere you created in the house, which without doubt was the most valuable part. You never ending smile and energy taught me a lot and always made my day from the early morning.
I wish you all the possible accomplishments in your yogi and personal life, you really deserve it. Never lose your vibe. Ciao!”
