Bask in sunshine on a yoga retreat in Spain.

Yoga Retreat in Spain

16 – 23 June 2018
1 – 8 September 2018

We visited many beach locations before settling on gorgeous laid-back Menorca island for our luxury yoga retreat in Spain. Much smaller than Mallorca and less busy than Ibiza, Menorca is quieter, slower, more relaxed, and with a true Spanish feel.

Our yoga retreat in Spain is a mix of luxury, pampering, beach time, culture, great food and top-quality yoga – with a small group and personalized service.

We’ll be staying at a renovated 5* luxury hotel on stunning Cala Galdana beach – a little gem with fine white sand and crystal blue sea, one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Spain. We’ll practice yoga outdoors and spend the afternoons getting a massage or on a boat trip, and strolling around charming towns. And for the more active, there’s hiking, horseback riding and several biking trails.

There’s something to do for every taste – including lazy days by the pool with a book and a drink. This is your yoga holiday, so there are no rules and no schedules – we’ll show you around but completely understand if you want to just relax on your own.

What to expect

Our groups are normally 10-15 people from all over the world and we create a warm friendly atmosphere so everyone feels welcome. We’ll practice yoga twice a day, and all yoga levels can join, even beginners.

Many people come on their own, as well as friends traveling together, siblings, partners – it’s always an interesting mix. We’ll plan group dinners and do some things as a group, but we know that solo-time is important, so we always allow for that space. You can eat and drink what you like, and you can skip a yoga class if you’re tired. We’re completely flexible with everything.

We’ll make sure you get the best quality yoga classes during the retreat, and that you return feeling refreshed both physically and mentally. But we also appreciate that this is a holiday break for you – so we try to inject a bit of fun and adventure, and also a bit of culture and discovery. And we’ll be there to offer up recommendations and make sure everything runs smoothly.

Where we are going

Where is the yoga retreat located?

Our yoga retreat in Spain is located on the lovely island of Menorca (see Menorca on a map), just a stone’s throw away from Ibiza and Mallorca, but without all the busy tourism and commotion. It’s more secluded and pristine than some of its neighbors, and an ideal spot for a luxury yoga retreat.

Our gorgeous hotel is on Cala Galdana beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Spain with crystal clear water and soft white sand. There are a few restaurants near the hotel, and several towns nearby with even more dining options. And there’s plenty to see and do nearby in case lying on the beach gets tiring!

No one is ever in a rush in Menorca. Its laidback lifestyle makes it an ideal place for a yoga retreat, yet it has so much to offer and so many beautiful places to see and things to do – and the combination is perfect.

There are direct flights from many European cities.

About Menorca

Menorca has a gentle pace and unspoiled landscape which make you feel immediately relaxed. It’s the most authentic of the larger Balearic Islands, with a much slower Spanish feel than a busy package holiday destination.

The island’s main attraction is its beautiful coastline with many gorgeous beaches. It’s ideal for snorkeling and scuba diving, kayaking and sailing, with plenty of boat trips to discover all the beautiful corners. There are also hiking trails and horseback riding trails along the coast, as well as several cycling lanes.

The elegant towns of Mahon and Ciutadella are a must to visit. Lined with cathedrals, palaces, and charming pedestrian streets full of boutique shops and cafés, it’s easy to spend an afternoon wandering and exploring them. Binibeca and Fornells are two other charming towns easily visited in an afternoon and a bit more off the beaten track.

Luxury Accommodation

Melia Cala Galdana 5* Hotel

We’re hosting our yoga retreat in Spain at the 5* Melia Cala Galdana hotel.

This is a gorgeous hotel set on one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Spain. The panoramic view of the bay from the hotel is breathtaking. We chose this lovely hotel specifically for its superb location on Cala Galdana beach with its fine white sand and clear blue-green water.

The hotel has been recently renovated and is modern and bright, with elegant guest rooms decorated in a contemporary style. They offer spacious bathrooms, air conditioning, free wi-fi and flat screen TVs, and have a terrace with stunning views out to sea.

There’s a gym, jacuzzi and sauna. Massages and all sorts of beauty treatments are available to keep you pampered, and if you have extra energy, sport activities at the hotel include spinning, cardio box, and aquagym.

spanish tapas

Local Cuisine

Spanish tapas and paella are a must in Spain – we’ll take you for dinner to several local restaurants in town and on the beach where you can try some wonderful dishes made with fresh ingredients from the island. You can eat and drink what you like – we don’t have any restrictions. The hotel has several dining options including a Spanish beachfront restaurant and an Italian rooftop restaurant, a beach club for lunch, as well as a lobby lounge bar.

We’ll have a full breakfast together after yoga with numerous options – eggs any style, all sorts of breads, yoghurts, fresh juices and fresh fruit. The large breakfast usually keep us going most of the day, but some people have a light lunch or an afternoon snack before evening yoga. And we’ll plan a group dinner in Ciutadella town or near the hotel each evening for whoever wants to come along.

What yoga means to us

Yoga is at the heart of our retreats, and we offer the real deal. You’ll definitely get a good workout, but the goal of the physical practice is to challenge you enough physically so you can begin to let go and quiet the mind. That’s what yoga is all about – calming the mind. And that’s what we teach on our yoga retreats. You will feel re-energized and restored both physically and mentally.

Vinyasa Yoga and Yin Yoga

We offer two yoga classes a day on our yoga retreat in Spain: a morning Vinyasa flow class to get your heart going, and an evening Yin class to relax. Both classes are suitable for all levels.

What is Vinyasa? What is Yin Yoga?

Your yoga teacher and your host

Sarah Scott

Laura will also be with the group in Menorca to make sure everything runs smoothly, she’ll plan day trips and group dinners, so you can focus on enjoying the yoga week!
