Travel Wish List: 5 yoga retreats in Ibiza

Last year I took part in a yoga retreat with Azul Fit on the island of Fuerteventura. It was a fantastic week and it left me feeling fitter, healthier, slimmer and more relaxed. I vowed to make yoga retreats a yearly ritual and I’m desperate to take another one this year.

Ibiza looks like the perfect place for a yoga retreat. The island is beautiful, flights are cheap and the weather is perfect. Even in the low season during the spring and then throughout October it is usually warm and sunny. Ibiza also has the perfect level of affordable luxury I’m looking for. What more could you want?

Ibiza might be famous for it’s clubbing scene but it also has a laid back wellbeing scene that I’m keen to check out.

So without further ado, here are 5 yoga retreats I’m drooling over in Ibiza.

5 yoga retreats in Ibiza

1. Mirella Saraswati Yoga and Detox Retreat

Best for: Yoga + healthy eating

Mirella is a health chef as well as a yoga teacher so this detoxing retreat has a huge emphasis on cleansing and healthy eating too. The retreat house has a hippy chic vibe and a gorgeous pool overlooking the valley.

2. Boutique Yoga and Detox Weekender

Best for: If you’re short on time

This is perfect if you only have a long weekend to spare and you’re looking for a stylish and luxurious retreat. The retreats run from Thursday-Monday so you’ll only need 3 days off work.

3. Hot Yoga Ibiza

Best for: If you’re travelling with non-yogis

If you’ve never tried hot yoga (often known as Bikram Yoga) you need to get it in your life. It takes a bit of getting used to but once you’re in the swing of things it leaves you feeling amazingly energized.

Hot Yoga Ibiza offers classes rather than retreats and they also have ashtanga and core yoga too. You can buy a bulk of up to 30 classes and it can work out more affordable.

There are plenty of options for villas to rent in Ibiza which can be a perfect option if you’re travelling with people who aren’t interested in yoga as they can do their own thing while you’re at your class.

4. Ibiza Yoga Retreat

Best for: Yoga for the mind and body

With ocean views from the yoga deck, wooden bungalows, hammocks swinging around the pool and 3 hours of intense yoga per day, this pretty much sounds like my perfect retreat!

This retreat also offers 3 hours of yoga theory as well as the physical yoga practice. Yoga is as much about the mind as it is the body so I think this would be an interesting addition for yogis and great if you’re thinking about becoming a yoga teacher.

5. Beginner Yoga

Best for: Beginner on a budget

Prices start from just £421 for 8 days and 7 nights. This includes accommodation, a three-hour yoga class per day and your food. Classes are aimed at beginners so this could be the perfect option for newbies to yoga.

    Oh God don’t do this to me…I’m much closer to retreats in Bali but I’ve never visited Ibiza and the thought of retoxting in one of the clubs afterwards is so tempting!

    Love that there is an option for doing a retreat during a short stay, especially for travelers who hop around from place to place or have other plans in between. A weekend is sometimes plenty!

    Hi Monica,

    Thanks for featuring our Yoga & Detox retreat in this article! I didn’t see it till just now!

    Ibiza is indeed the perfect location for a yoga retreat and we are excited to host this retreat twice this year, in April and September. I would be delighted to see you there if you can make it.

    Love your blog, I will be following!

    Much love,
    Mirella

    Ibiza is just the perfect place for a retreat, I’ve moved there 8 years ago for a season and still feel I’m on retreat 🙂

    I completely agree with you that going on a yoga retreat every year is an amazing thing for both your body and your mind. Absolutely everyone should clear out their schedule and visit such a place. Even if they are not practicing yogis and just trying out something new.
    With that said, these five yoga retreats listed here are awesome. I love the fact they are all different and aimed at beginners as well as more experienced yogis… And everything in between. I am smitten with Ibiza Yoga Retreat and I will definitely write it down and include it in my future yoga retreat plans.

    I completely agree with you in that Ibiza is a great place for yoga! I could also add to your listed benefits that the atmosphere is great and everyone who goes there seems to enjoy the place quite a lot. This contributes to a much better yoga experience, which is totally worth it!
