HEALING & SPIRITUALLY UPLIFTING
This is what makes this retreat so special:

- Recharging in one of the most magical places in the world.

Your invitation to switch off from responsibilities and unplug from the day-to-day stresses back home.
This transformative week will help you find the reset button via an exploration of ‘balance’ in all its aspects. We will be embarking on experiences of yoga and breath-work, through to a range of uplifting and relaxing activities and most importantly nourishing ourselves with delicious nutritious gut health-themed plant-based food. Over our week together we will be rebalancing the body and mind connection through movement and the flow of breath, reconnecting our inner worlds to the world around us. Through our daily asanas and bodywork, we will strengthen and realign our bodies. And through gut-healthy nutritiously designed food & individualized nutrition assessments, we will allow the flow of energy to both cleanse and rejuvenate our digestive systems.
This is more than just a yoga retreat, this is a healing transformational week to help destress, detox & re-balance your body nutritionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually, helping your soul to shine.

Testimonials from Ibiza 2019 retreat at Casa Solara with Mays:
I had an amazing experience on Mays’ Yoga retreat in Ibiza. I love the way she teaches and encourages. She has left me completely addicted to yoga. I was not eating enough protein, which Mays spotted, and now I feel so much better on a daily basis from the diet & lifestyle changes she suggested. Thank you, Mays, you have changed my life. xx
I really enjoyed Mays’s advice and help on my dietary habits during a recent yoga retreat. I am not a vegan nor a vegetarian, so it was really enlightening to learn about eating different types of delicious foods and how to tweak my own nutritional habits in order to address different issues such as supporting the immune system, incorporating additional proteins and much more. A true life-changing and yummy experience including wonderful yoga too. Thank you Mays!
I joined Mays’ yoga and nutrition retreat in Ibiza Sept 2019. I was looking for a yoga retreat of which the yoga was amazing but I also got the added bonus of nutritional counseling and 6 days of delicious and satisfying vegan gut-healthy themed food prepared by a chef on-site & designed by Mays. Mays is very helpful in assessing your current diet and making suggestions to supplement your eating plan. I found I was not getting enough protein when eating vegetarian and made some changes which have left me feeling more satisfied. Her approach is not to make you feel you are eating ‘wrong’ but to help you eat ‘right’ for your own body’s needs. Thank you, Mays!!!
I spent a week on a yoga retreat organized by Mays in Ibiza at Casa Solara. Everything was incredible! From the twice-daily yoga to the unbelievable vegan meals (menu curated by Mays!). I had a nutrition consultation with Mays on the retreat which I found so helpful and have come back inspired with ideas of how to eat more healthily. Mays really knows her stuff 🙂

Trained in many different healing techniques and disciplines Scarlett is skilled in a range of different treatments. Whether you have a specific injury or you simply want to destress Scarlett will give you a wonderful session of healing according to your needs.
We (Mays & Scarlett) will conscientiously co-teach and hold space for you throughout the retreat. The personal attention you receive from us is an invitation to move into a safe, effective and therapeutic yoga practice. Tapping into the transformative energies that the island of Ibiza is famous for, we go back to basics and engage with the opposing elements of masculine & feminine, yin, and yang, sun and moon, heating and cooling. Working to synchronize movement with breath we will invite more harmony and balance into our bodies and souls. If yoga is quite new to you we will make sure you can access the postures with modifications suited to your level and if you are a long-time practitioner we will give you some extra coaching to take your practice to the next level.
Dynamic Yoga Practice will be a wonderful and rewarding way to start every morning. The practice will be based on elements from ashtanga, rocket, and, vinyasa to activate our physical and energetic bodies giving you a boost to enjoy the day ahead.
Breathing techniques and Relaxation will support you to balance your physical, energetical, emotional and mental bodies. Most importantly we will ensure that the morning sessions are a fun way to engage with yourself on many levels, experimenting with different styles of yoga.
In the afternoon we enjoy a different flavor of relaxing practices that allow us to tune into and balance our emotional and mental levels.
Meditative Hatha sessions are your invitation to slow down and cultivate a loving and gentle attitude to yourself. Throughout the week we will explore practices that open and release at the level of the heart center. Taking time to tune into how and what we are feeling whilst cultivating more appreciation and gratitude towards ourselves.
Osho Dynamic Meditations. These moving meditations are a wonderful way to stir and shake up the energy inside of us. A great invitation to let go of inhibitions and free up your mind and soul.
The evening practices will vary and will be a beautiful and nourishing time to integrate the experiences of the day into our system helping to send us off to blissful sleep.
Guided Meditation practices support us to move into a place of stillness and silence. Where we can allow ourselves to ‘let go’ and surrender into the deeper realms of our being and touch on and experience the inner peace and harmony that lies within.
Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep is a very special practice in which we introduce the seeds of change into our subconscious to support positive and beneficial transformations. If there is some habit or addiction that you are working to eliminate from your life, this practice could be the key to long term change and healing. Research has proven that yoga Nidra practices can help to reduce stress, anxiety, depression, improving sleep and mood disorders.
