Trick or Retreat in Ibiza as you spend your Halloween in pure bliss with eight days of yoga, wellness and SO MUCH more!

With the US based, 4th of July Holiday Yoga and Healing Retreat in the FLorida Keys scratched off of the yoga retreat wishlist, it’s now time to start planning our international travels for the next big yoga holiday on the calendar, Halloween 2017.  When searching for the most ideal location to spend your All Saints’ Day this year, we couldn’t imagine any place more perfect than the beloved Mediterranean Sea island just off the east coast of Spain, Ibiza!!  Brought to you (and for you specifically) by yogi Lena Tancredi of Sunset Mountain Ibiza Yoga Retreat, this is yet another eight day yoga retreat you will likely never-ever forget.  For their Halloween 2017 retreat, you will arrive for the start of the retreat on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 and close it out with a bash on Tuesday, October 31, 2017 with lots of love, pampering and self care in between (with the accompanying yoga, chanting, meditation, massages and more, too).  And, just like the FL Keys Retreats that was previously featured for July 4, 2017, this eight-day yoga vacation in Ibiza is also held all year round so, if you can’t make it for the Halloween holiday, you can still pencil it in for your 2017 yoga travels.  See retreat details below and reserve your spot as soon as you can with just a 30% deposit down, which is fully refundable (when cancelled up to 30-days before retreat date) should you have any sudden change in plans.

Sunset Mountain Ibiza Yoga Retreat 8 Days Lena Tancredi’s Yoga Retreat in Ibiza Program Details with Schedule of Classes, Meditations, Sessions and More

From Sunset Mountain Ibiza Yoga Retreat:

Sunset Mountain is a Hatha Yoga Center. The classes are based on the Sivananda system. There are between four or five hour daily classes during the week (theory, asana, pranayama, and meditation classes). Some of the classes are more physical and vigorous and some are more recuperative and relaxing.

All classes are optional. After all, this is a holiday not a boot camp! It is fine if you decide to sleep or spend more time on the beach in the afternoon. A big part of yoga is listening to your body’s needs and a holiday is also about rest and recharging.

All yoga classes are held in English and there will always be two teachers (one leader and one assistant) to ensure a correct performance and to attend individual needs. The yoga program includes four hours of theory divided in three parts during the week:

First theory class (one hour)

During this session you will receive important and inspiring information about the yoga philosophy allowing you to understand in a very simple and deeper way different aspects about the origin, types, and goals of yoga. You will learn about Vedanta philosophy, the three Gunas, the four paths of yoga and the eight limbs of Raja yoga.

Second theory class (one hour)

You will learn about the chakras, the etheric body, and how yoga benefits not only your physical body but also your energetic body. The connections between the chakras and your glandular system and the importance of bringing your practice to a deeper pranic level.

Third theory class (two hours)

You will learn about Ayurveda principles based on a correct diet and healthy lifestyle. During this class you will receive many important tips about food combinations and personal diet according to your nature and your dosha (personal physical and mental constitution).

Asana and pranayama sessions

Two morning sessions of three hours each where you will learn the complete traditional Sivananda system which includes sun salutations, two different kinds of pranayamas (breathing techniques), 12 basis asanas (steady poses), and final relaxation. The three- hour session will allow you to receive important and specific information about the correct performance and alignment of the asanas.

One additional morning session (one and half hour) of Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskara) to ensure that you will perfectly learn it.

One additional morning session (one and half hour) of Pranayama where you will learn how to control the flow of prana through different kinds of breathing techniques.

Two afternoon sessions of three hours each. These classes will be more dynamic and vigorous and there will be taught a large range of different asanas with many variations.

One morning session of three-hours of detox yoga (Sukushma Vyayama), which is an ancient component of yoga not known to most of the schools of yoga today in the world. This is one of the few systems of exercises in the world where each and every part of the body including each organ, each joint, and each muscle is taken into consideration.

One afternoon session about three hours which will be a resume about all you have learned during the week.

Guided meditations

Each yoga session will finish with 30 minutes of guided meditation. Every time you will learn a different technique, so that you can have a better vision about the form of meditation which could be more suitable to your nature:

  • Introduction to Vipassana
  • Chakra meditation
  • Nidra yoga
  • Chanting
  • Music meditation

Personal program approach

Whether you are a beginner or experienced, this retreat is designed to accommodate your level. So if you have never tried yoga, do not feel intimidated, Sunset Mountain Yoga will assist you throughout the week. This Ibiza yoga retreat is a great option for both advanced yoga students as well as beginners; all activities are developed with personal attention to each guest’s preferences and goals.

The intense yoga classes will tune up your body, mind, and soul. And being away and resting from your normal routine, practicing yoga, meditation, and being outdoors in nature may help to give a fresh perspective and awareness of yourself and your life. You may prefer to take the week more as a retreat, with more silence and reflection during the free time. Or, you may just prefer to relax and be on holiday! Most importantly you begin from where you are.
