Radiant Soul Yoga Retreat with Rachel Sundström

19th to 25th September 2020

Ibiza

 

Extend your summer on the magical Island of Ibiza.  Join Rachel on a journey that will set your soul free and connect to your inner radiance.  This retreat will include a daily integrated yoga practice, free time to relax or explore and afternoons that focus on different creative aspects and practices.  You will also have the opportunity to enjoy SUP Yoga, meditation walks and a special closing circle overlooking the magical Es Vedra at sunset.

 

We look forward to welcoming you to The Chettinad Retreat, a 400-year-old finca nestled on 25.000 square meters of private land. The finca is a peaceful haven in the hills overlooking the rural Sant Agusti valley and located on the south west of the island. The pure, clean air and the view of distant peaks piercing through the morning mist is a perfect way to start off the day.

 

The geodesic yoga dome is a luminous and tranquil interior with views of the beautiful countryside to enhance a sense of well-being during our yoga and meditation practice. It is fully equipped with yoga mats and props so no need to bring anything.

 

The hillside retreat features a traditional farmhouse, one adobe cottage and two detached stone dwellings. When guests are in need of finding their own private space there are six outdoor terraces and patios to choose from. Natural rock landscaping with beds of fresh herbs, trees bearing almonds, figs, pomegranates and oranges, and hammocks dotted around the property give guests many options to choose from when in search of a chill zone or a secluded place to reconnect with nature or one’s self.

 

This yoga retreat is suitable for all levels, beginners are welcome. All classes will be taught in English.
