Join us for an “insiders” week of Spanish culture, yoga, art, untouched nature, gastronomia and Mallorca island wilderness so beautiful that UNESCO has designated it a World Heritage Site!
Our Spain Retreat is designed with a focus on integrating the “inner arts" of yoga with an immersive and authentic cultural adventure. You home for the week is a private 14th century mountain top villa, a true hidden gem, surrounded by 1000-year-old olive trees and a endless view of the ocean to one side and a view of the spectacular Tramuntana Sierra to the other.
Every corner of our mountain top villa is treated with an elegant and artful attention to detail. There are an infinite amount of charming nooks throughout the property to enjoy, including a cliff-side pool which overlooks the ocean. Daily feasts of homemade Spanish cuisine and local rioja, will be happily burned off every day through our morning yoga practices and daily eco-adventures around the island.
Each day begins with a strong yoga class followed by everything Spain: trekking, sailing around the island, indulging in local gastronomia, exploring Deia’s cliffside artist colony and, of course, frolicking in the Balearic Sea. Did we mention bumping into the friendly sheep, goats and donkeys that freely roam about the mountain side?
The retreat itinerary has been curated for you to immerse yourself with great ease and plenty of time to relax and explore on your own. It is our belief that all art arises from an elegant listening inward as well as a courageous adventure outward. Immersive cultural travel expands our definition of self and tribe while deeply enriching our inner creative lives. We know you will return home creatively inspired and well fed on so many levels by the spell of the sensuous that is España!
This retreat is open to all levels of yoga, meditation, art and life experience. We look forward to taking you on this singular journey to discover authentic Mallorca, Spain!
Asi se baile!
