About the retreat: BodyART TM hits Ibiza Join Robert Steinbacher and Nicole Gibbard for an unforgettable week of fun, laughter, energy, luxury and pure indulgence in one of Ibiza’s most exclusive and prestigious villas.
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 BodyART™, DeepWORK™ and BAX classes with Robert Steinbacher and Nicole Gibbard., and you’ve discovered a Top Hill Retreat.
Your day begins at dawn, as a magnificent sunrise floods the valley below, and a ‘wake up’ power walk takes the early birds out into the great outdoors. You will have the chance to practice with both Nicole and Robert most days, with invigorating and energizing morning classes and late afternoon classes that give you the opportunity to use up that final burst of energy before a dip in the infinity pool or perhaps a massage.
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.
