The yoga that you will find in this retreat will mainly be different explorations of Vinyasa Yoga (dynamic practices linking breath and movement) using the Synergy Method (a modern flow style fusing traditional Indian Hatha Yoga, internal martial arts, and western physiotherapy).
We will also include time for Yin yoga sessions as well as deeply relaxing restorative practices.
INTRODUCTION to TANTRA:
Tantra and the Tantric Arts come from a rich and ancient practice of connectivity to all that IS, starting with oneself.
Tantra is a Sanskrit word that is loosely defined as, "that which is woven together". It is an investigation of your own inner workings and how you are woven into the fabric of your life. Here at the retreat we will explore Tantra in a fun and nourishing way filled with cosy introspection and practical life tool learning playfulness! People often think tantra is only about sex and that you need a partner to practice, but neither of those ideas are accurate. At its core, Tantra is a modality that “redirects our energy to bring the ultimate presence and awareness onto what is alive. By doing so, we cultivate genuine openness, curiosity, and playfulness towards the human experience. Essentially, it’s an opportunity to breathe aliveness back into our lives.
Massage does the body good! Humans need loving touch to stay happy and healthy! Bodywork is one of the best ways to evaporate stress and nourish our souls while at the same time gently coaxing toxins out of our cells.
Our massage workshop will be predominantly practices of soothing relaxation massage. We will offer self practice and also explore Californian Bodywork techniques with parters mixed with elements of cosy Tantric and Ayurvedic oil massage.
Pause, breath, listen.
The word “retreat” means as much as “withdrawing yourself” from everyday life. During a retreat you can fully immerse yourself in the process, you do not have to do anything else. It is an opportunity to slow down and find a safe space to be with true essence.
SHAMANIC SOUND BATH:
Experience the powerful revitalising effects of sound bath therapy and meditation to reset your mind and body. Sound bath meditation uses the frequencies and vibrations of gongs, crystal bowls and other instruments to help your brain reach deep relaxation and rejuvenation. By altering our state of consciousness through sound, we can transform our relationship with ourself, and with the world around us.
FEAST FOR THE SENSES:
A sensory journey through a multi-course meal, appreciating the bounty that is all around us. Heart-warming offering which will take on a mysterious new culinary experience.
Exquisite, secluded Villa Monte with infinity pool.
Cala Tarida, Ibiza.
This retreat will take a place on the magical Mediterranean island of Ibiza. Villa Monte is a beautiful modern villa situated in a small valley in the tranquil and picturesque southwest of the island. Nestled amongst a pine forest and parkland, it offers an opportunity to experience a touch of luxury mixed with the authentic Ibiza countryside.
The villa is beautifully decorated, light and airy. There are plentiful garden terraces around the pool with day-beds, hammocks, and loungers, making it a perfect place to relax and enjoy the surrounding nature.
Visiting Ibiza in winter is a remarkable experience. It's the time of year when the island regenerates after the hot and busy summer. Nature comes alive again. The lush green, the flowers, and the breathtaking almond blossoms all give the island a mid-winter's Spring.
The area is famous for some of the most picturesque beaches on the island, as well as nature hikes and unforgettable sunset views that are just a short drive away.
Villa Monte is 18 minutes from Ibiza Town and 20 minutes to the Airport and conveniently located for local amenities in the local town Sant Josep.
Zuzanna is a nutritional conscious food alchimest who's art is weaving together the finest ingredients with her love and attention to detail.
She combines locally sourced, seasonal, organic food with her own passion for cooking, to create simple, creative, and heartwarming recipes that inspire. Her intuitive approach helps her to create a taste experience that truly comes from her heart and nourishes from bowl to soul!
Her intention for the retreat is to show you that healthy vegan and vegetarian food can be delicious, rich, and satisfying nourishment for your mind, body, and soul.
Malva & Buzz
Malva brings together powerfully transformative yoga, movement and meditation practices and present them in an accessible way. In her practices the postures are interconnected in a fluid way, without losing detail. She always seeks to transmit her way of feeling in yoga, integrating different techniques to enrich the practice for all.
Buzz shares his experience of the Tantric arts in a loving and transformative way. He uses self-awareness exercises, clear boundary expression, communication practices and conscious touch as pillars of awareness in which to explore the liberating energies of Tantra.
