Full Description

You’ll be led through daily yoga classes, meditation sessions, group discussions and lectures taught by Andrea from Nectar Yoga. Whether you are new to yoga or deepening your existing practice, you’ll gain a stronger awareness of your mind, body and spirit connection after your Ibiza Yoga Detox Retreat.

Mirella Saraswati will have your taste buds watering before every meal. Each day we will enjoy inspirational, delicious, and extremely healthy creations. Informative demonstrations and lessons are included during this week. You’ll go home with a new relationship to food and the desire to eat clean.

The hillside property we selected features a centuries-old “finca”, or traditional farmhouse, one detached adobe cottage and two adjoining stone dwellings which are truly one-of-a-kind. A terraced swimming pool, framed by extra-large group seating and dining, is the focal point of the main house’s exterior. Natural rock landscaping, beds of fresh herbs, including mint and rosemary, trees bearing almonds, figs, pomegranates, oranges are yours to indulge in. Lounge areas dot the property giving you many options to choose from when in search of a place to relax and rest. This small exclusive yoga retreat is your perfect detox sanctuary. Join us for a yoga detox retreat you’ll always remember.

THE LOCATION
A hillside property with sweeping views overlooking the rural Sant Augusti valley in the South-West of Ibiza island. The finca and all guest housing have been lovingly restored in a delightful blend of classical architecture, modern interior design, and 21st century conveniences. Several magazines have featured this beautiful finca as it is the perfect example of old-meets-new Ibiza bohemian luxury.

Four-foot-deep stone walls offer natural temperature control. High-beamed ceilings bring in an abundance of light which streams through floor-to-ceiling retractable glass doors, skylights, and windows in the main house. The interiors white-washed walls, floors, and ceilings are contrasted by dark woods and colourful textiles from Asia, India, and the Middle East. The common living area, with fireplace and flat screen TV, is hearth and heart of the home. There are three homes on the property exclusive to our retreat.

The grounds are private and open for you to explore. The Main House is the largest and accommodates up to 8 guests in 2 double occupancy rooms and one private room. The Adobe Cottage accommodates two singles or one couple and the detached micro suites sleep private singles. There are 5 bathrooms, six outdoor patios, and one outdoor shower on property. Each morning and evening we will practice meditation and yoga in the garden yoga dome. You’ll experience a magic unspoiled relaxing yoga retreat and detox holiday of a lifetime.

YOGA AND MEDITATION
As the sun rises, you will be led through a daily guided morning meditation in the yoga dome overlooking the hillside. Your morning yoga asana and pranayama (yogic breathing) class, will awaken and energize you. This retreat is perfect if you are a beginner yoga student, if you prefer a slower paced practice (slow doesn’t mean easy), if you have specific limitations that require props or special guidance, or if you just want to relearn the fundamentals of yoga. Throughout our week together, you will learn to move with awareness, strength and balance. Your daily yoga asana classes will be catered to your specific body needs and will focus on the foundations of yoga asana (postures) and Yin Yoga (long holds). We will be centring our lessons on facial release, alignment principles, and core strength/mobility. As the week progresses, we will build from a foundation geared towards taking yoga home. Your knowledge will deepen during our daily yoga discussions on methodology, history and alignment.

The goal: let go of the past, be present in the Now and, most of all, to BE HAPPY!

Andrea’s teaching style is an infusion of mindful alignment and intentional breath. Andrea is a certified Yoga Teacher with over 2000 hours of training and teaching experience, a certified Advanced Mat Pilates instructor, and a certified Yin Yoga teacher.

FOOD AND NUTRITION
Health chef Mirella will pamper you with a delicious and cleansing cuisine, offering you 3 home-made detoxifying meals a day. This entirely plant-based menu is designed to detoxify your body, nourish your cells and increase your energy levels. All Ingredients are hand-picked with the intention to optimally support your health, ensuring a full spectrum of nutrition, which will include all your necessary vitamins, minerals, protein, good carbs and fats. You will absolutely love it and go home with plenty of inspiration to continue to eat clean and make choices in your diet that serve your well-being.

Please note that we will be eliminating all processed sugars, dairy, meat, fish, gluten, and fermented foods. This is a retreat focused on an anti-inflamatory, vegan, vegetarian, plant based food program.

During this yoga and detox retreat you will get the chance to learn how to make your own plant-based food by taking part in cooking workshops.
