Tiny Whale Surf Lodge, a luxurious eight-bedroom villa equipped with two new bell tents, a pool, and a jacuzzi is a true haven in the middle of nature. Drop your bags, your shoulders, and exhale fully as you step into this dreamy property, which will be your home for the week. All rooms are beautifully designed and flooded with light to ensure your absolute comfort. They include fresh linen and towels along with well-thought-of finishing touches like cozy blankets and extra cushions for that extra homely feel.

They have lots of different room options available to suit all travelers so have a look below to choose the right option for you. The villa offers many chill-out or lounge areas where you have the choice to connect with other retreat guests, have some alone time with a good book, take a siesta by the pool, or relax in the heated jacuzzi. In the evening, there is a comfortable outside area where you can gather around the fire pit under starlit skies.


Held in a luxurious hideout near Lagos, BeYogi Ibiza welcomes you for a week of wellness, yoga, and a course to cultivate an empowered mindset, gain clarity, ease, and personal transformation. Framed by yoga practices, breathwork, cold dips, and deeply restorative evening classes, you will be guided through a seven-day course to upgrade your mindset. They believe mindset is foundational for all that you experience in life and most importantly how you experience life.

Say goodbye to anxiety, fear, and self-doubt and instead leave this week feeling inflow with tools to manage any personal challenges and leaping into that delicious feeling of freedom. In the spirit of liberation, you will, of course, have lots of fun, delicious meals, adventures, hikes, chats, and music around the fire and time to lounge, read a good book, and simply be. This is a different kind of retreat where you will not only come home feeling healthier, stronger, rested, and relaxed but with a new outlook on life and an abundance of tools to live the life, you came here to live.

Are you ready to

  • Live a more fulfilled, abundant, and joyful life?
  • Dissolve anxiety and stop self-sabotage?
  • Handle uncertainty, adversity and make better decisions?
  • Live more effortlessly in the flow state?
  • Overcome the fear of failure, chronic self-doubt, and the feeling of not being good enough?
  • Develop a strong meditation practice and drop into your body through creatively sequenced yoga flows?
  • Learn how to reset and soothe your nervous system through powerful breathwork?

What awaits you

Find your freedom! is a dynamic and high vibe retreat where you will learn a ton of new skills for life in an absolutely, insanely stunning environment. Begin your day in silent meditation in the warm and cozy indoor space followed by energizing breathwork around the pool and a cold dip, if you are feeling brave. Wim Hof anybody? You will then roll out your yoga mat in the morning sun for a dynamic yoga class led by Carina to create that body-mind connection that prepares you for transformational work.

After simmering in that after yoga glow in savasana, you will be served an abundant, colorful, and super healthy brunch by your own private chef. Well-nourished, you will meet in one of the cozy lounge areas for a daily dose of Gary’s empowered mindset course. Gary will take you on a journey of self-discovery teaching you completely new ways of thinking that inspire a life of effortless flow leaving you fully equipped to start to handle life’s challenges in a more empowered way.

The afternoon is free to explore, lounge, take a nap, or read a good book. On some afternoons, they may take you on a hike or a trip into town, which is optional. Wind down for the evening with a restorative, slow Yin yoga practice and sound journey to slow down the nervous system, integrate the day, and feel deeply relaxed. After a delicious evening meal around the big table, there is some time and space to chill out around the fireplace, share stories or insights from the day, or have an early night.

Mindset coaching

During the retreat, Gary will be taking you on the journey of self-discovery where you will be learning how to develop an empowered mindset. He will be sharing insights into a completely different way of thinking that leads to a life-changing shift in perspective and true transformation. Gary will shine a light on how to overcome common fears and limitations that cause so much suffering in your lives including the fear of failure, feelings of inadequacy, chronic self-doubt, and the belief of not being good enough.

Over the course of the week, he will be raising your awareness so you can dissolve anxiety, learn to let go of the past, and expose limiting patterns of behavior that lead to self-sabotage. It is time to take self-mastery and emotional intelligence to a whole new level to discover the truth behind human behavior and why you get so deeply triggered so you can shift into a more empowered way of being and finally start to live more effortlessly in the flow state.


Invigorating and dynamic morning flows will leave you feeling energized, strong, and embodied. In the evening, you will rest and soothe your nervous system during deeply releasing yin and restorative classes and sound journeys.
