Join us for a 7-day journey of yoga practices in an enchanting villa in the north of Ibiza. Take a break from your daily routine, connect with nature and like-minded people and take the opportunity to deepen your yoga practice under the guidance of our dedicated teachers, Elena and Lorna and our yogi support Rosie.

The retreat will comprise a mix of Hatha, Yin and Restorative yoga coupled with sound-healing and pranayamas techniques.
We will practice yoga in the morning and evening on our yoga deck, which offers sweeping views over green pine tree hills and down to the shimmering sea.
After a delicious, healthy brunch each day, you will have time for yourself to explore some of the wonders that the island has to offer.
Casa Shakti is surrounded by idyllic beaches, hiking trails in nature and Las Dalias, the island’s most famous hippy market, is just a short walk away.
As the day starts to wind down, we have our evening yoga class by the pool before enjoying dinner together.

As part of our daily practice, we will explore different styles of yoga – Hatha, Yin and Restorative which, whilst being gentle on the body, also bring deep, long-lasting effects. These styles are indicated for those looking to let go of deep-rooted stress and experience a sense of relaxation and harmony. Their pace also allows you time to listen to and observe the effects that the practise has on the body.

Alongside the daily asana practice, you will also get to experience the incredible healing effects of Tibetan singing bowls – an effective and proven modality that uses vibrational sound to help clear the mind, reduce stress and create a deep sense of peace and wellbeing. Sound has been used for centuries by indigenous cultures as a type of energy medicine used for healing and meditation purposes.

We will also practice daily with a number of different pranayama techniques (breathing exercises), experiencing first hand their wonderful benefits and why we consider them an integral part of our yoga practice.

Elena is one of the founders of Shakti World Retreats and the manager of beautiful Casa Shakti Ibiza, our retreat venue.

She is a Hatha Yoga teacher who has been practising yoga for the last 18 years. Since November 2009, she has been attending the Himalayan Yoga Teacher Training under the direct supervision of Swami Veda Bharati and joining regular retreats in India.
In Elena’s Yoga classes, great importance is given to the preparation of the breath, relaxation techniques and meditation. This will help you to let go of any tension built up after a stressful time and to restart your life calmer, with more energy and with a clearer head.
She also brings a spiritual element to her teaching and encourages you to expand your awareness both individually and collectively.
The physical practice together with relaxation and meditation, help stimulate your creativity, re-balance your emotional state and improve the quality of your sleep.

Elena has been teaching in Ibiza since she moved there in 2011 and is now settled in her yoga paradise, in the hills with her horses and cats.
She is also a student and practitioner of Natural Horsemanship as a way to rehabilitate horses who have experienced physical and psychological trauma.

Lorna has been teaching for the last 10 years in studios and workshops in Hong Kong, Europe and the Ivory Coast.

Her practice and teaching are influenced by different schools of yoga such as Iyengar for alignment, Ashtanga Vinyasa for strength of will and tenacity, Hatha for balance, Yin and Restorative for complete surrender. Her approach to yoga is one that places importance on breath and empathy towards ourselves. Over the years, it has convinced her that most of our fundamental attitudes to life have their physical counterparts in the body. This is what she shares in her class – control and integration of body through asanas, mind through pranayama and relaxation, and spirit through meditation. This, coupled with her sense of humour, will put you right at ease.

Lorna’s teaching style incorporates active classes with restorative and mindfulness practice, always giving importance to gentle realignments and adjustments and to bringing the breath in sync with the movement. Whilst challenging you physically, Lorna’s classes also gently encourage you to go a little beyond what you think you can do!

Lorna is also a Certified Sound Therapist specialising in the use of Tibetan singing bowls.
