Ibiza is an island of many misconceptions and contradictions. Nestled among the Balearic islands in the Mediterranean Sea off Spain’s eastern coast, Ibiza is a well-loved destination for Europeans and North Americans alike. In the summer, its cities are overrun with tourists, all desperate to partake in the island’s legendary clubbing and electronic music culture. World famous DJs descend on Ibiza, drawing fans from across the world. It is no wonder that Ibiza has gained a reputation as a “party island” – and a visit is a rite of passage for many dance-lovers.
However, there is another side to this Mediterranean island, that often falls in the shadows of its club scene: Ibiza is also a destination for yoga retreats and wellness-seekers. Once you get out of the cities of Ibiza, you will be met with pristine white beaches, endless pine trees, and crystal blue waters. As electronic music fades into the background and is replaced with the peaceful sounds of island life, it becomes clear that Ibiza has a special energy, and is therefore home to so many yoga retreats.

Ibiza Retreats has two gorgeous retreat homes, as well as access to other private properties across the island.
Program: At Ibiza Retreats you can choose from dozens of different retreat themes, budgets, accommodations, and options. Retreats are run from March through the end of October each year. Each retreat has a focus on yoga, but the themes vary from “Glow,” to “Transformation,” to “Nourish” and more.

Yogarosa retreats on the island of Ibiza are a holistic, luxurious experience for all senses. The entire experience is meticulously designed, starting with the beautiful property where retreats are held: Agroturismo Can Bet. Agroturismo Can Bet is a sprawling property with bright, airy rooms, rustic wood furnishings, an outdoor pool, and a fully plant-based kitchen. The center is set on four acres, surrounded by a classic Ibizan pine forest. As Rosa, the founder and yoga teacher at Yogarosa, claims, much of our daily energy is expended on external communication. At Yogarosa, yogis are asked to turn that energy inward. If you are looking for a quiet, reflective, and individually-designable yoga retreat in a peaceful setting, then Yogarosa retreats are ideal for you.
Program: Unlike other yoga retreats in Ibiza, Yogarosa retreats are run as vacations, on a continual basis. Yogis can book into Yogarosa and stay for however long they please, and that suits their schedule. As such, there is less of a group atmosphere and more focus on quiet, internal reflection.

Above all, The Body Camp teaches attendees that entire lifestyles can be transformed simply by incorporating joy into daily activities.
Program: Unlike most yoga retreats, The Body Camp does not focus solely on yoga, but rather includes other techniques such as circuits, interval training, traditional toning exercises, pilates, and more to lean out attendees’ bodies.
