Imagine what it would be like to step out of a hot yoga lesson and, instead of floating down to London Bridge tube station, you jump into an outdoor swimming pool?
Well, that’s what we do every summer at our stunning Hot Yoga Society retreats – a fantastic opportunity for experienced and new students alike, to develop and deepen their yoga practice with exceptional teachers, in idyllic surroundings, enjoying great company and food on a beautifully relaxing and revitalising holiday.
Our retreats are run by our fully trained and most experienced Hot Yoga Society teachers. And this year we are honoured to have Bridget Ane Goddard lead our retreat. BA will share with you her knowledge of the Bikram Yoga Sequence and lead you in daily classes. She will also offer a variety of meditation techniques, giving you the tools to be able to sit in stillness and notice yourself. She will offer posture clinics where our focus will be in the details, so prepare to deepen your understanding of asana, further understand the mechanics of each pose, improve your foundations and increase your overall flexibility and strength. You’ll also have a chance to be extra playful, go deep and experience the transformative effects of Jared McCann Yoga. The JMY combines classic meditation and breathing techniques with asanas from Ashtanga, Iyengar, Forrest, Bikram and Dharma Mittra.
People tend to come from across the UK but we often receive enquiries from overseas too – everyone is more than welcome to join us! Some people come with a friend or a partner but most come on their own and don’t know anyone before they arrive.
The atmosphere is always really friendly and relaxed and there are plenty of opportunities to meet new people and join in with activities as a group, as well as to enjoy time to yourself. We encourage people to join in with as much or as little as they like – it is your holiday and we want to make sure you have a fantastic one! However, this is a yoga retreat and whilst we are in Ibiza and have some time to enjoy the local nightlife, the retreat is a calm, quiet place to re-energise and re-vitalise. Take a week away to surrender, to be led, to be inspired, to increase your youthful vitality and share your love of yoga and life under the Spanish sun!
Each day will start with a group morning meditation session followed by a 90 minute outdoor covered Bikram Method yoga class. Afterwards, we provide a healthy mainly vegetarian brunch. In the afternoon, we enjoy a second 90 minute Bikram Method yoga class followed by an evening meal and we will also run one posture clinic each week – the perfect chance to ask lots of questions and get to the heart of all the postures. We will also offer you Flow Yoga classes and some one to one time to ask your burning questions.
Massage and other fantastic treatments may be available too. You can also enjoy the swimming pool and gardens or venture further around the stunning island of Ibiza.
We expect that everyone who comes wants to enjoy the yoga and quiet atmosphere, rather than the Ibiza nightlife. So come prepared to immerse yourself in your yoga practice, space from hectic life and a chance to hang with some other friendly chilled people.
Price is £1199 per person per week including accommodation, yoga tuition and 2 buffet meals per day (excluding one night out in Ibiza). Price excludes flights and airport transfers and is based on a double or twin room.
