Mallorca Yoga Retreat 2018
I’m a big fan of the Yoga Retreat. As far as I’m concerned it’s the only way to travel. Daily Yoga practice within the container of unfamiliar, exotic spaces just happens to be a winning combination. Group retreats are also much more affordable than traveling solo. Finally, I love sitting down each evening for dinner with my retreat companions. We usually sit at the table long after the meal has been finished to download the day. It’s extraordinary. You should try it 🙂
Retreat House Mallorca
This retreat centre brings together fantastic yoga facilities, beautiful accommodation and delicious food, all in a peaceful environment boasting spectacular views of the Tramuntana mountain range. The Retreat House is located in the old part of a charming village, Sa Cabaneta. Our home base is just 15 minutes away from Palma, the capital of Mallorca. It’s about 20 km from Palma de Mallorca International airport lodging will be distributed throughout a large parcel of land. There will be 4 single or double rooms available in the main house. A really cool thing about this retreat house is the dorms! Double and quadruple rooms are an awesome option if you are travelling on a budget or with a group of friends.. All dorms have designer bunk beds and each dorm room has a private terrace. The dorms share multiple showers and WC’s in the Yoga Shala building.
Retreat House Mallorca boasts beautiful and versatile locations for Yoga classes. There is a gorgeous Yoga Shala which has 3 glass sliding doors to let in the mountain breezes and natural sound track. There is also a stunning outdoor area for practicing with views of the Mountains. Retreat House Mallorca provides high quality and abundant Yoga props! We’ll have access to mats, blocks, straps, blankets and bolsters! This is a first for an SMY retreat!! With access to props we can enjoy some nice supported Yin or light restorative practices!
Relax by the pool after class each morning or go for a stroll in the village. You may like to read in the garden or relax in the communal areas. Wifi is available at no charge in the common areas. The Retreat center supplies all linens, pillows and towels, though they do ask that we bring our own beach towel for pool and beach use.
For this retreat we will be hiring a chef for our meals so you can just relax, do yoga, go sightseeing hiking or beach bumming. 7 amazing days of Mediterranean sun and Yoga 🙂
Day Trips and Tours
Visit traditional Mallorquin Fincas that have been producing their own wines for centuries. These Fincas have been handpicked for a unique experience in the Wine World for our special afternoon/evening tour.First, we will visit the oldest winery in Mallorca (1711), we’ll stroll through the BODEGA’s fermentation tanks along with their beautiful cellars. There will be a chance to taste their superb wines together with typical Mallorquin tapas.
Our second stop will take us to a very old Mallorquin working Finca which has been in the same family for more than 6 generations. The vineyards are set in the fields below the Finca in a stunning location. We’ll will walk amongst the vines and see how the plants produce “magic” fruit in this small and unique BODEGA. At this location we will try some of the wines produced on the property as well as wines from 3 other area bodegas. Local, homemade tapas will be served with each wine.
After plenty of wine and exploration we will enjoy the the sunset with one of the best views on the island over a dinner of Spanish Paella.

If we’re going to spend time on an island we have to spend some time on the beach! Right!
After our morning practice we will travel by coach to the Southern Part of Mallorca. We’ll stop in a village by the sea for lunch and sight seeing. After lunch we will travel to one of Mallorca’s gorgeous white sand beaches. We’ll enjoy the afternoon there and return to the Retreat House in the early evening.
Props! Glorious Props!As if mountain views and fresh island air weren’t enough! Our retreat center offers all the props a Yogi could want. Our morning classes will last about 90 minutes. We will start slow in a meditation or Yin style and build progressively to a warm and mindful flow. Each student is encouraged to practice at a sustainable level and with compassion. Our practice each morning will center of the cultivation of contentment, one of the basic ethical tenets of Yoga. We will also practice on two evenings. One will be a supported Yin and guided meditation, the other will be a pressure point practice. Discover just how amazing it is to practice Yoga when you don’t have to rush!
Retreat to Mallorca
If ever there was a way to level up on the path to enlightenment, it must be travel. Contentment or Santosha is a vital element toward true peace. Travel has a way of both facilitating and testing our skill at contentment. We’ll use our practice each day to sharpen and hone our unique challenges to contentment, and our adventures beyond the mat to test our progress. Join me! Please reach out if you have any questions about the trip.
