This retreat is for people from all levels of yoga and especially for those who wish to have a deeper understanding of the self, your true nature.

Itinerary

Day 1

Welcome at the magical island! Today, your Ibiza adventure starts. After a taxi drive across the island, your final destination for this week is the authentic centuries old finca Can Lotus in the quiet north. Take your time to land, settle down in your room, and meet your fellow yogis. The retreat will start in the evening with a festive garden diner.

Day 2

Rise and shine. The first day of the retreat is on the sunny horizon! Today, you will be introduced to your daily invigorating morning ritual; a lemon detoxer, sunrise meditation, and a good set of pranayama.

There is a light breakfast afterwards and time to take a shower before you continue with your yoga practice. You will meet on the outdoor yoga platform for a 90 minutes energizing Vinyasa yoga class. A healthy wholesome brunch is waiting for you. Then enjoy some free time at the house or if you are in for some local fun, take a cab (or your rental car) to the organic St. Joan Market, and mingle with the locals.

You will meet in the afternoon for a beautiful walk trough the campo to the nearby beach and enjoy a refreshing swim in the blue sea to cool body and mind down.

Day 3

After a good night sleep, you will start the day again with your early morning ritual followed by fresh and fruity breakfast. After a short break, get ready for your daily yoga class under the pine trees. You will have lunch with clean, vegetarian food, and in the break there is the opportunity to book a relaxing massage or go for a swim at the popular hippy beach Aquas Blancas. In the afternoon, you will do a relaxed yoga session which allows you to fully surrender and let go.

Day 4

Today is a day for contemplation and to concentrate on your inner self. The entire day, you will be in silence, no chitchat during the meals or in between classes. Silence helps you to reach a higher level of consciousness and a better understanding of your innermost nature.

You will practice powerful breathing techniques, yoga, and meditation to deepen your silence and gain more clarity as you go along. Use your free time for self-inquiry, rest with a good book, or take a siesta. In the afternoon, you will go for a silent walk to one of the most beautiful and desolated spots of the island where you will enjoy a guided meditation in nature and some free time to go for a deep dive in the sea.

Day 5

Start your day slowly and relaxed. You will uphold your noble silence for just a little bit longer. Take a few deep breaths and smell the pine scented air, while listening to the sounds of nature all around you. The morning program will be as you are used to by now. After lunch, you will have a group sharing where you officially break your silence and share your experiences and insights with the rest.

In the afternoon, you will have a special yoga class with a focus on Partner yoga. Expect a light and playful yoga session in duos.

Day 6

Another full day of inspiration on the menu. Drink your lemon detoxer before landing on your yoga mat for the morning meditation, pranayama, and yoga session on the outdoor platform or rooftop. With renewed energy, you will sit down for a peaceful lunch afterwards.

In the afternoon, there will be a Yin class. Holding the yoga poses longer invites you to look deep within. See how the fluctuations of the mind gradually damp out and become aware of the Silence between the thoughts.

After dinner, you will experience the power of chanting together in kirtan style.

Day 7

Wake up and make yourself ready for your morning routine. This day, you will have the last yoga session of the Ibiza yoga retreat. In this class, you will once more experience the most important pointers on your way to absolute freedom which were presented to you during the week.

In the afternoon, you will go for a meditative hike trough the forest. We will finish this hike at the ancient sanctuary of the Goddess Tanit, where you will ceremonially lay your prayers of love and freedom at her feet. The last evening is for celebration. We dine and dance into the night. Prepare yourself for a natural high!

Day 8

Today the Ibiza True Nature Yoga Retreat comes to an end. But no need for sadness since every ending promises a new beginning! You will have your last breakfast together and after that you will take a moment to share and thank one another before officially closing the retreat. Hope to see you all back soon.

Included in the retreat package are nature walks.

    "I was a bit afraid because the meals are vegetarian. Nevertheless the food was very tasteful and nourishing, Thanks to their great cook Diane."

    "Besides, whilst I was travelling "alone" I have never felt so much "solidarity" amongst a group of people which was really nice to experience. "

    "Generally, I would not doubt to book this retreat. It is a great way to relax and unwind. Far away from our too busy and stressful lifestyle. The classes, people, food are great."

  • Review by Mike den Helder from the Netherlands

    "One week of yoga retreat organized by Mountain Ibiza was an experience I really needed. Laura and Wouter teach with great pleasure and I really liked the short inspiring stories Wouter was telling during the yoga poses. They know the island very well and during the excursions they showed me some beautiful spots I would never have found myself. The food, prepared with much passion by Susan, Laurens en Laura, was delightful and was a big part of the total experience. At the moment of writing it has been two weeks since I returned back home after the yoga retreat and I can still feel its impact: lots of calmness and positive energy. Thank you for the good care, the fun, the inspiration and the love during the week!"

    "My friend and I had such a special time on this retreat. As our first week into some much needed holiday, it was the perfect way to wind down with excellent company, food and exercise. I would highly recommend it, Laura and Wouter are fabulous hosts and are knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I was a tad nervous to begin with, with my yoga experience stretching to a couple sessions in front of a DVD looking like a bit of a prat, but my fears were soon allayed when we started and it was clear that any ability was catered to. A highly rewarding and fun experience and I would definitely come back!"

  • Review by Greemn Lim from Sydney, Australia

    "The Mountain Ibiza long weekend yoga retreat was one of the most incredible and refreshing experiences of my life. I cannot recommend it enough. The setting was breathtaking and perfect: situated in the midst of mountains, we practiced yoga on the rooftop at sunrise, and yoga and meditation watching the the sunset.The accommodation was also lovely, with amazing views overlooking the mountains. It was our sanctuary. The instructors Laura and Wouter were incredibly skilled with their teaching methods and could cater the classes to suit all levels of experience. Their hospitality was second to none: they devoted so much care and attention to each of us, made us feel safe and welcome, and also prepared the most delicious vegan meals.It was an absolute pleasure and privilege to have this experience. It was very relaxing, refreshing and the perfect retreat to reconnect with nature and more importantly, yourself. If youre contemplating this retreat, dont hesitate any longer and just go for it. You are guaranteed to have a profound experience that makes you never want to leave. Would love to go back. Thank you so much Laura and Wouter. Namaste."

    "I had a great time at the mountain. Wow! A great place to be, off the beaten track, a precious place, hidden on a mountain at Ibiza. I have felt the power energy of this place. Laura is a beautiful soul and her yoga lessons felt good for body and mind. This is a place where you can contemplate and gain new energy. I will carry the Mountain Ibiza in my heart. I hope I will visit the magical mountain again."

  • Review by Danielle Van der Peet from UK

    "Almost every year we go to Ibiza to visit a friend. In all those years we never heard about The Mountain. Never knew about this beautiful and impressive spot on the island. And impressive it was, because of you! You gave us the perfect vibe en inspiration! It felt very good, straight from the beginning. The yoga session on the roof of your living, with view on the mountain, was the perfect place for an inner reflection. Your breakfast afterwards was great! The experience was one I will not forget. Thank you very much for your attention, class and kindness. You have a beautiful and special spot! I hope to visit you next year."

    "I did a yoga morning and liked it a lot. Not only the yoga, but the whole mountain experience. I felt a bit stressed when I came to the island, because I had to arrange many things before my holiday, both at work and at home (holiday stress) After this morning, I felt like I got completely rid of it."

    "After a very intense period I needed to get a break and recharge: Ibiza Mountain is the perfect place! Great people: very warm and welcoming, beautiful views, amazing atmosphere and last but not the least excellent yoga practices. I did the retreat in which we had a program with daily yoga, amazing food and a nice dance evening. I recommend it to everyone and I'm coming back for sure! "

  • Review by Katja Clerx from Amsterdam, Netherlands

    "Last week I came back from a very special week in The Mountain Ibiza. I now miss the beautiful place, the lovely tipi, the warm mountain people, the amazing views and the nature silence. I booked only 3 days for some yoga classes and the Mountain Experience. I didnt know what to expect. But, when I arrived on The Mountain, I immediately felt the spiritual energy and wanted to stay, so I did till I had to fly back home. The yoga classes of Laura and Wouter are very nice and lovely way to start the day. So much love and attention, it was a day to remember. So I definitely are coming back to this magic place. Thank you Laura, Laars, Wouter and Thomas and the other Mountain people who live or stay there. Namaste! "
