About the retreat: Ibiza offers warm sunshine, cool breezes, secluded and hidden beaches, stunning scenery, a natural and laidback spiritual feel, beautiful local cuisine, traditional markets, a vibrant old town, an opportunity to let your hair down in some of the finest clubs and bars in the world – add to this daily yoga practice with Ross Rayburn and Nicole Gibbard, and you’ve discovered a Top Hill Retreat.
Top Hill Retreats combines yoga on the mat with yoga experiences in nature, animals and always a little adventure, to really offer people the thrill and excitement of discovering themselves spiritually, physically and mentally in the most complete way during this unique yoga holiday experience. Taking place in Ibiza from May 23 to May 30, 2015, it is the perfect time to enjoy this amazing island as it eases into the summer season.
Your morning yoga session takes place as the magnificent sunrise floods the valley below, while late afternoon sessions are designed to be more therapeutically based, winding you down to enjoy the warm evening, a last dip in the infinity pool or perhaps a massage before the evening ahead.
A private chef offers you a feast of delights at breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu is plentiful, and includes vegan, vegetarian and raw food fused with local Ibicenco cuisine – there is something for all taste buds! All food is organically and locally produced, offering you a real taste of Ibiza!
Each day offers you a chance to dive deep into the surrounding nature and beauty of this island, with an array of activities carefully interwoven into your week to allow you to fully enjoy your time with complete ease. From market visits, horse riding and kayaking to hikes, exploring caves and the fascinating old town, the appeal of Ibiza is endless.
