Most people think of Ibiza as Spain’s party island. In the summer, its cities are home to more tourists than locals, all on a pilgrimage to experience the island’s legendary electronic music and clubbing culture. Less known is that Ibiza is also home to a thriving yoga scene. Away from the cities, this island is gorgeous and peaceful, filled with isolated beaches, lush forests, and beautiful natural rock formations. Over the years, many luxury yoga retreats have popped up across the island, and today Ibiza is a destination for luxury-loving yogis from across the world.
It is no wonder that Ibiza is home to so many luxury yoga retreats. The island itself has a magical energy that seems to draw yogis and wellness-seekers to it. Its most famous rock formation, Es Vedra, off the southwest coast, is said to be the most magnetic point in the world. Other myths say that Es Vedra is the remains of the lost city of Atlantis, or that Egypt’s Great Pyramids were made of the rocks of Ibiza. Whatever the truth is, it is clear that there is some mystical energy surrounding this island. Many luxury yoga retreats across Ibiza draw on this energy to encourage yogis to relax and withdraw on this mysterious island.
