This trip is designed to help you break from the routine, to rediscover yourself, to reconnect with your inner wisdom and your inner peace. It uniquely combines the serenity of yoga with the invigorating experience of hiking, allowing you to harmonize your physical and spiritual well-being. And the perfect complement to our yoga retreat is the practice of forest therapy, a practice that involves immersing oneself in the natural environment of a forest. This will add an extra sprinkle of zen to your journey of self-discovery

The empowerment in yoga lies in its ability to cultivate resilience and mindfulness. During our revitalizing yoga sessions amidst the natural beauty of Mallorca your will embrace your body, build strength and stability, and generate a profound sense of self-awareness.

Our conscious hikes will not only make your muscles work but will also bring space for reflection and clarity, and a satisfying dose of self-confidence and fulfillment when you reach the top.

Forest therapy practice will bring you to the present moment and connect you with nature on a profound level. This sensory adventure will not only lower the level of  stress hormones but it will boost your mood!

Yoga sessions will be tailor-made for our intimate group – maximum number of participants for this trip is 16.  Gentle vinyasa flow sessions will connect you fully with your breath, will release tensions and blockages in your body and increase the flow of Prana, your vital energy. You will learn breathing techniques that will help you  stay focused and balanced in your everyday life

What will I experience?

Mind-Body Harmony: Yoga, meditation and journaling sessions that will expand your consciousness and connect you deeply with your essence and the sense of gratitude. Yoga sessions are suitable  even for complete beginners. You will gain confidence and connection with your body.

Reconnect with Nature: Mallorca’s breathtaking mountains are just the perfect place where you will activate your senses, deepen your connection with nature and with yourself. Hiking will add an invigorating cardio boost and a sense of accomplishment. Forest therapy sessions will take you fully to the present moment, bringing you mental clarity and a deeper sense of calm. And the panoramic views  will take your breath away (in the best way possible).

• Expert Guidance: Personalized attention, tips for growth, and support on your personal journey from Jana – a yoga and forest therapy instructor. Deep immersion into the local culture, nature and history from Dita – a knowledgeable and experienced local guide.

 • Unplug and Recharge: In the heart of the Tramuntana mountains you will experience the serenity of the former Lluc monastery. Even though there is a wifi connection available I would encourge you to take a digital detox. A digital detox will give your busy mind a break and will help you to listen to yourself – to your body, to your intuition more. After spending some time in the nature just with yourself you will reconnect with your inner calmness and  will come home feeling lighter, with clear mind, more open and grounded. 

 • Connection and Community: The shared experience of practicing yoga and exploring nature together fosters a sense of community and connects you with like-minded yogis and travelers. Through laughter and joy you may find new friendships, boost your confidence and open yourself to a new way of experiencing life.

 • Culinary delights: You will get the opportunity to enjoy the irresistible charm of Mallorcan food culture, to savor each bite of tasty tapas in an unhurried way and to embrace the island’s laid-back ambiance. 

Don’t let this opportunity for self-discovery and adventure pass you by! Join us in Mallorca, where every sun salutation and mountain trail is a step towards a healthier, happier you. Your transformative journey awaits –  let’s make memories that last a lifetime!

 

Why Mallorca?

Because the slow island life is just what you need to  slow down, recharge and shine again!

This wonderful island, nestled in the heart of the Mediterranean,  will surprise you with a harmonious blend of serene landscapes, ancient charm, and a tranquil energy that is just perfect for your transformative wellness experience.

Mallorca in spring is a vibrant place full of rich colours and intoxicating scents of orange trees in bloom. Azahar, the essence of orange blossoms, fills the air at every step. So close your eyes and feel the air caressed by a fragrance so enchanting,

Now imagine practicing yoga amidst the lush spring nature, with the soothing sound of the sea or the wind and the Azahar fragrance as your backdrop. 

Our hiking trails will lead to stunning panoramic views, inviting you to reconnect with nature and to let your eyes and heart be filled with this beauty. You will discover the rustic charm of mountain villages and will travel back in time meeting the local people with their donkeys.

The island’s springtime blooms and gentle climate create the perfect setting for a rejuvenating retreat, making Mallorca an ideal destination to unwind, rejuvenate, and find your inner balance.

And as it is hard to describe the magical beauty of an island life the best thing you can do is to come with us and experience it yourself!

You need to know

What if I am not a yogi?

This journey is open to any adventurous and nature-loving soul. Yoga practice during our journey is not obligatory. So you can happily join us even if yoga is something you are not interested in.

Nonetheless, if you happen to change your mind while traveling with us I will be pleased to welcome you at any of our yoga sessions.

What level of fitness is required?

To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all participants, a basic level of fitness is required for the hiking part of this journey. While the trails we explore offer breathtaking views and unforgettable moments, they also require a certain level of physical endurance and mobility.

You should be comfortable walking moderate distances over varied terrain and be prepared for changes in elevation.

No prior experience with yoga is required. I will guide you through the yoga sessions with care and attention to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.

If you have any concerns about your fitness level or specific health considerations, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I am here to support you on your journey to wellness and adventure!

What is the weather like and what should I pack?

The weather in Mallorca in spring is mild, with sunshine and nice temperatures. Nevertheless, there might be some rain and, as we are in the mountains, the wind can be quite strong on occasions.

That is why your clothes should be waterproof and windproof. Bring something to cover your head and your neck.

Your hiking shoes must be comfortable, rigid and waterproof, with plentiful ankle support and thick soles. No sneakers, please! The terrain is rocky so you need good shoes for your own protection – shoes that keep your feet safe.

If you have further questions about what to bring, please, don´t hesitate to contact me.

 

Do I need a travel insurance?

Absolutely yes. We require that all travellers have their travel and health insurance.  We also recommend that your insurance covers your trip cancellation.
