There's so much on offer here on this enchanting sun-drenched island.
The island itself is beautiful - quiet bays, inland mountains with sleepy villages overlooking the beach, rugged cliff-faced coastline.
Aswell as being renowned as the party island of Europe, it also has a reputation for health, wellness and yoga, with many health practitioners, wellness coaches and yoga teachers having created workshops, studios, schools and yoga retreat centers here.
Whatever you are looking for in a retreat, Ibiza is sure to have it.
How to choose your retreat
You need to take into consideration quite a few factors when deciding which retreat to go on, making the right decision of where, when, with whom and for what activities are the most important questions to answer for a wonderful holiday ahead.
What to Consider
1. Retreat Activity
Think about what you want to do on your time away.
Maybe you want to hold a handstand for longer.
Or you could just want to hit the beach for some sun and yoga.
So first off you need to decide what you want to be doing.
As the market has grown in popularity so too have the type of yoga retreats on offer.
You can combine your stay with any one of many activities these days.
Are you are looking for options like spa, detox or alternative therapies,
if so make sure to check out whats available.
Consider what's included as part of the program.
If it's a tour then does the price include all transportation.
If it's off-the-beaten track then do they run airport transfers and provide local transport connections.
Does the retreat center have fitness, steam and sauna rooms.
And of course what's the pool like and the local area.
Check out the schedule. Does it suit you?
Are you looking to stay in bed late or happy to start with an early class.
Do you want an active schedule like on a surf yoga retreat or will you prefer a lot of down time on the program.
Maybe you would like to combine a detox program with yoga and spend some well deserved time enjoying massage and body treatments in the spa.
Or maybe you would like to go deeper into your meditation techniques more than just one session a day.
It may look cheaper but make sure you know the accommodation details of your retreat.
Retreats often price according to shared or private rooms and room type. Check it out.
Consider your accommodation type when choosing.
Make sure the teacher and yoga style match what you are looking for.
How many classes a day.
Are you interested in there being meditation classes and a variety of yoga classes.
Are you looking for Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Flow or the heat of Ashtanga.
Or a range of classes
If so the same teacher every day may not be the best way to go ... different
yoga retreat centers have different approaches.
Some rotate their teachers and yoga classes giving you variety or have
multiple classes to choose from each day.
A small group at a retreat center in the jungle somewhere may be just the thing you
are looking for ... or maybe not.
Consider what you want to do. If you want the opportunity to socialise but want flexibility
to do whatever you want
during your time then a small group may not suit.
A larger yoga center may be just the trick.
There's a whole price range for retreats these days.
From luxury destination spas with treatment inclusions to more basic set-ups.
Prices vary based on venue, accommodation, program and the location.
One tip, outside of high season is always a good time to go when the cost is normally
lower for everything.
That all depends what you are into.
There are retreats of every duration, yoga style, activities, group size, in all locations…and the list goes on.
You can join a small group on a particular focused retreat in a villa, or stay at a larger retreat center / wellness hotel, where there are daily and varied classes, great facilities, a bespoke spa, and a come-and-go as you please approach.
The choice is up to you. Flick through what we have to offer here by searching by activity type.
All our partners are established and professional centers. If there was an unforeseen circumstance of

Our reputation is key to maintaining trust and service with you.
Ibiza is very busy in high season, the summer months and Christmas / New Year, and it is advisable to book well in advance for yoga retreats in these periods.
There are retreats held all year round here and the island is calmer and more peaceful outside of the high season, so there should be lots of options for you depending on when you want to go and what you want to do.
