Podcast, Season 2:

Thrive in Ibiza

Thrive with me in the magical balearic island of Ibiza.
 
When: 20th-24th November
Where: Villa Monte, Ibiza
What: Yoga, meditation, self-reflection & more

Throughout this 4-night, 5-day blissful retreat experience, we’ll be using powerful mind and body practices, to help you let go of what’s holding you back, feel ENOUGH, just as you are and start thriving!

There’ll be daily yoga, meditation, group workshops, hikes, a healing sound bath and optional massage throughout your time. You will leave a more empowered version of yourself, with clarity, lightness and motivation to go home with and integrate into your daily life.

Each day will cover a different theme, leaving you equipped with the tools and techniques you need to help you navigate your journey to thriving.
This heavenly Mediterranean destination has beautiful scenery and a spiritual, healing energy that’s perfect for a retreat like this.
 
November is a wonderful time to visit the island; much quieter and away from the party season, making for a much more authentic experience. The weather is still beautiful, with strong chances of blue sky and sunshine and highs of 20 degrees.

THE PRACTICES

Daily yoga classes, AM before breakfast and PM before or after dinner, depending on the schedule that day.

The morning classes will tend to be more vinyasa flow based, linking breath with movement to both liberate and invigorate you for the day ahead. They may perhaps challenge you and your yoga practice.

The evening classes will tend to be more relaxing and meditative, following more of a slow flow, restorative style, to end the day right, and set you up for a deep sleep.

Everybody and every body is welcome on the mat, as both styles of yoga are suitable for all levels, including beginners. Modifications will be offered for all abilities.

There are mats at the villa, so you do not have to bring your own.

The yoga classes will be infused with coaching, therapeutic exercises and self-reflective questions for you to bring about more self-awareness and self-discovery alongsie a feeling of inner calm. We will be working with the inner child and higher self-concepts, all of which are things I do with my 1-1 therapy clients and talk about in my ebook – Thrive.

We will also be joined by a gong bath guru, who will lead us through a powerful and healing sound bath.

There will be group hikes to attend, to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

WHAT’S THRIVE ALL ABOUT?

Every single one of us has a potential. And none of us have reached or achieved our potential, yet. If we had that would be a bit boring right?

Our potential is ever expanding, there’s always room for growth and improvement. We all have a more evolved version of ourselves within us. And that’s what thriving, for me, is all about.

It’s NOT about feeling amazing, positive and wonderful and achieving your life goals every single day, that’s not realistic or possible, life is tough and we all face challenges and have bad days.


Thriving is about knowing, from a deep place that you are enough, as you are, and from this place stepping into the shoes of the very best version of you. Thriving isn’t the outcome, it’s the journeyWe will delve deeper into how you can go about this on retreat in Ibiza, so you will a different person to the person you came as – with more knowledge, wisdom, self awareness and understanding.


The topics we will cover on this experience have been carefully created from my 1-1 signature therapy programme and my ebook – Thrive.
