5 Nights


 

FRIDAY

1700-1830 - Welcome to your first Glow yoga experience of the retreat, on the magical deck in our own private forest at Can Shanti. 

The Theme is Grounding

We start with an introduction to the Glow philosophy of teaching, followed by a guided meditation to help you settle & truly ‘land’ in Ibiza. Then a slow floor-based practice to unwind and lengthen the spine followed by a long savasana using essential oils to help you to relax into the retreat experience. 

 

1900 - Supper under the stars - You will love our nightly three course fine-dining experience using the fresh, plant-based, seasonal & locally-sourced produce.

At every evening meal you can enjoy a glass of organic wine, if you so wish. 


 

SATURDAY

Enjoy this peaceful time to read, reflect and enjoy a morning tea or coffee while absorbing the sounds of the Ibizan countryside that surrounds you. .

 

0830-1030 - Back to the forest deck for our daily morning Glow yoga practice.

The theme is Expansion.  

Opening with a guided meditation & creative visualisation to begin to create some space in our busy minds. We will focus on a yoga asana flow, with accompanying music to open and expand both our external as well as our internal body space, using breathwork to elevate our connection to this internal space - and all the possibilities it holds!

We offer one-to-one Wellbeing check-ins so you can download or offload what you need to,  & identify any personal goals or intentions for your retreat. 

 

1630 - A healthy snack will be served each afternoon in the poolside lounge -  or let our team serve you whilst you relax on your sunbed.

2100 - Join us in the beautiful candlelit yurt - wrap up in a blanket and we will guide you through a calming Yoga Nidra - the yogic state of 'conscious sleep.'


 

SUNDAY 

 

0800 - Light help-self breakfast bites. Sunday’s are traditionally a day of rest, so feel free to celebrate this time in silence and enjoy some time for yourself before we start our practice. The gardens and grounds of the villa are yours to explore, with plenty of hidden spots for peaceful solitude.

 

0830-1030 - Our daily morning Glow yoga practice.

The theme is Strengthen.  

We will open with a guided meditation & creative visualisation to help strengthen our connection to ourselves. The energising yoga asana flow will focus on strengthening our physical bodies as well as our minds as we gently challenge ourselves and start to shift physical, mental and emotional blocks. A more activating breathwork will leave you feeling re-energised, re-charged and capable of more than you thought possible!

 

1100 - Superfood smoothies & energy shots 

 

1200 - Brunch - feel free to continue the soulful Sunday vibes and enjoy your brunch with the group - or with yourself! How often do we really get that time for ourselves where we can enjoy our food mindfully in beautiful surroundings?

MONDAY

 

0800 - Light help-self breakfast bites will be served in the poolside lounge

 

0830-1030 - Our daily morning Glow yoga practice.

The theme is Balance. 

The asana flow will focus on twisting and balancing in a sequence to bring ourselves towards a state of balance - of equanimity and equality of the left and right hand sides of the body, whilst bringing awareness that we are not totally symmetrical beings and each day will bring something new! Our Breathwork practice of Nadi Shodana follows this theme.

TUESDAY

0800 - Light help-self breakfast bites will be served in the poolside lounge

 

0830-1030 - Our daily morning Glow yoga practice.

The theme is Stabilise. 

One of the pillars of yoga is the concept of stirham & sukham - stability and ease - and we need both in equal measure in order to navigate our way through life - both on and off the mat. This practice will take you to your edge and back to a place of peace in order that you can feel for yourself that ‘sweet spot’. We learn to flow with the energy and surrender when we need to. We will revisit the concept of biomechanics so you can see how far you’ve come on this journey.

1200 - Poolside Brunch 

 

1300-1600 - YOU -TIME and any additional treatments & therapies you have selected

0830-1000 - Our daily morning Glow yoga practice.

The theme is Fly. 

Our final morning practice opens with a guided visualisation. We learn to fly with an asana flow focussed on taking flight and always looking forwards, not backwards. We focus on fine-tuning our intentions for our ongoing life after the retreat. 

 

1030 - Superfood Smoothies and Poolside Brunch with fresh-pressed juices. 

If you need to leave earlier to catch your flight, we’ll give you a delicious Buddha Bowl to take with you.
