“Eva and I want to say thank you to Lisa and Susie and everyone in your team for an inspiring amazing 5 days. You are all truly passionate and so good at what you do. We left relaxed,invigorated and refreshed, thank you so much for that.”
“I had such an amazing experience being coached by two of the warmest women I know – Susie and Lisa. They are such wonderful, empathic and professional women who guided me to find my path in life. Where Susie helped me to look beyond my mind and connect with my inner-self, Lisa has taught me how the right nutrition completes a healthy holistic lifestyle. Susie and Lisa, you both have changed my life. Thank you! I can’t wait to be part of your retreats again! ” – Melanie – 32, Holland
We very much believe in balance! So we have created this holistic retreat using our collective knowledge and experience to be a perfect balance of yoga, fitness, meditation, nutrition and clean eating.
The aim? To get your body, mind and soul into a conscious, present and loving state. And to empower you on your onward life journey.
This retreat is about creating a positive foundation to lead a healthy, balanced life. And to be the best you can be. Oh and did we mention we mix a little bit of magic in there too??
about the retreat
This retreat is for you if you are feeling a little unmotivated, tired, or lost and are looking to relight that spark, ignite your energy and bring back your zest for life.
Be assured that this is very much still a yoga retreat, with a fitness element smoothly included, just rather from the point of view of holistic wellness – opening our minds to the bigger picture. We will enjoy yoga every day – on the fitness mornings, it will take the form of an elongated stretch and meditation class – and then pure yoga flow for 3 days. In the evenings, we will have a yin style practise or a take part in beautiful hike through the beautiful Ibiza countryside.
This retreat has really been developed from Susie´s own personal journey, and her ever increasing awareness of the importance of a strong body in order to develop and deepen the yoga practise. Born from the understanding that yoga is very much about a philosophy for life, not just about the physical asana practises which move the body and the prana, but about all elements (and the 8 limbs of yoga) and how we choose to lead a more conscious existence. How being present and mindful can enhance our sense of well being in all elements of our life.
A day at the retreat begins with either:
- An energizing, fun, functional fitness session with our hand-picked personal trainer
- A guided hike in nature in one of our favourite secret island spots, far away from the crowds!
- Or a strong, dynamic and authentic yoga class, focusing on breath, alignment and cultivating a conscious awareness of your body and your energy system.
The ‘yang’ practice is anchored by daily meditation and breath-work. This balance of the ‘yin’ and the ‘yang’ is important to calm the nervous system, help us connect back to ourselves and find a sense of peace and equilibrium in every day life.
Suitable for all levels, whether you are new to yoga and looking to develop your practice or are a dedicated yogi wanting to challenge yourself further and to refine and deepen your technique.

Lisa left a stressful job after 19 years in financial services to Live her Dream in Ibiza. She is a Qualified Nutritionist, Wellness Coach, Reiki Practitioner and Mum. Lisa has been featured in Sainsbury’s Magazine, Marie Claire and The Sunday Times Travel Magazine. Her passion is to support people to live a Happier Healthier life and feels a large part of this is through what we eat & drink. On retreats she aims to empower people to go home and cook clean. Her ethos is to keep the food Clean i.e. Chemical FREE, as close to nature as nature intended, affordable and accessible to everyone, so that our guests feel empowered to continue the journey when they arrive home.
Susie has a sensitive inner-compass; she feels you and your fears, inspiring you to work consciously with your body and nervous system. She helps you recognise how constant states of reactivity are exhausting. Searching for equilibrium Susie left the constant highs of corporate London life all behind; the job which she was uninspired by and a state of feeling lost in the city. She chose to make life less about running and more about being conscious. Yoga and fitness has become a medicine and a bigger and bigger part of her life as she studied techniques in London and was then drawn to India. She is inspired by many teachers and her yoga is an eclectic mix of Vinyasa, Hatha, Scaravelli, Iyengar and Ashtanga.
A bubbly, bountiful ball of energy and love! Carina’s enthusiasm is incredible and her speciality is supporting people to listen to their own inner voice and establish their personal/individual practice. She guides her students to become softer and embrace fluidity rather than pushing themselves. From motherland Austria to big city life in London, where Yoga brought her to Ibiza to take part in a teacher training. She fell in love with this magical island and since March 2014 has been living here learning, teaching and saying thanks every single day!

I met Lisa on my very first yoga retreat three years ago . The food that Lisa prepared on that retreat has completely changed my life .She talked to us about food being our medicine not our poison. She explained how what we eat has such an enormous effect on our health.
I came away from that very first retreat in a completely different frame of mind, I was totally blown away by Lisa and her passion for food ,nutrition and all aspects of her knowledge of food .
Thank you so much Lisa Strong for the effects you have had on my life. You truly are an inspiration! I can never thank you enough!
