Globetrotters Homestay Retreats Malta Yoga Holiday Program

You will embark on a fun journey together by preparing and sharing nutritious and sustainable food to promote health and wellbeing, playing with personalities by being expressive and creative to enhance characters, and learning to embrace and accept your or others vulnerabilities, rather than rejecting them, as means for growth and love. You will have plenty of time to do yoga asanas, meditation, chakra guided imagery, and have fun with the unique creative workshops, social events, and food from a medley of cultures. Your me-time will be letting your hair down in the gleaming white and red sand beaches, sunbathing, snorkeling, kayaking, and diving in the glowing periwinkle sea. The walk trails reveal outstanding sea views, dramatic cliffs, diversity of habitats, and archaeological remains. Located in the ideal place to unplug, slow down that fast pace, and get back in touch with nature, this retreat allows you to feel utterly safe, welcome, and cared for. This is a chance to restore clarity of mind and heart, recover from a long period of stressful work or family situations, and enjoy an amazing escape if you’re feeling stressed, tired, overworked, or just need a week to relax. On this retreat, you may have a wonderful time learning a different practice than your own, take some time to focus on you, your yoga practice, and your inner awareness, get a strong foundation to continue your own practice, and get healthy again in body and mind.

The yoga sessions are designed as workshops rather than class format. The main yoga teacher, Siddharta, has trained in various yoga styles and has also worked as a yoga therapist so please utilize him as best as you can.

You will be preparing wholesome delicious dinners together. Don’t worry, Sunitha, a food lover and connoisseur will be facilitating the process of preparing exotic meals. As a sampler is a Moroccan couscous, Indian curries, Maltese Qarabaghli mimli bil-kapuljat (quite a mouthful!), and Italian grandma’s secret dishes.

Daily Social Event and Gathering (20:30-22:00)

These fun gatherings are designed for us to celebrate, enjoy, and have lots of loving fun. Please note that you may have some local friends (Tantric teachers, yogi, yoginis, artists, and musicians) that may surprise you with their visit and bless you with their healing and loving presence.

Daily Social Event and Gathering

  • Evening 1: Dinner and mocktail welcome party
  • Evening 2: Pyjama party (let’s share a tale)
  • Evening 3: Performance night (share your talent, read a poem, and tell everyone a joke)

Destino del retiro

This retreat will take place in Gozo, Malta. Your first introduction to Gozo, Malta’s stunning sister island, will be the short ferry ride where you will take in breathtaking vistas of Comino and imposing cathedrals and watchtowers overlooking Mgarr Harbour. Globetrotter Homestay is located in Għajnsielem, meaning "peaceful spring" and the first Gozitan Village that greets the visitor on leaving Mġarr Harbour towards the Gozitan heartland.

Sunitha and Siddharta welcome you to Gozo, the mystical island with legends and folklores of the valiant templars, love sick Greek Gods, the siren of the sea Calypso, ancient feminine goddesses, all set against the backdrop of ancient temples, and dramatic coastline. You can explore your creativity while soaking in the thousands of years old Ggantija temple dedicated to the feminine goddess and with stones so huge the locals believed they were built by giants.

You can also immerse yourself in the practice of yoga in the silence of the rugged countryside among the wild iris and gladioli, crushing mountain thyme under our feet. Expand your meditation practice sitting inside a crystal cave catching whispers of the sea beyond. Let your hair down at the mocktail party and Pyjama pow-wow while dancing to the bells tolling from the rotundas of majestic churches.

Eat the Gozitan specialities like ravioli stuffed with goat cheese, fish tart, and rabbit stew in one of the many rustic bars and restaurants serving traditional food. Nourish your body and soul with good food and local wine while discovering some of Gozo’s very own sheep milk cheeses known as gbejniet, the melt-in-the-mouth savory pastries called pastizzi, or the simple tomatoes ripened by the Mediterranean sun.

Meet Gozitans who show you what’s possible and inspire you to do the things most only talk about. Run on local time GMT or "Gozo Maybe Time", which sounds just about the right pace for an unforgettable getaway retreat.

An extract from Lonely Planet says that Gozo is a gloriously pretty island, with what the 19th-century nonsense poet Edward Lear called a 'pomskizillious and gromphibberous' landscape. He coined the words especially, looking for a way to describe the island's fairy-tale hillocks topped by enormous churches, its hidden, glittering coves, and its sculptured coastal cliffs.

Gozo is a lovely place to kick back, with sandy beaches, rocky coves, excellent scuba diving, snorkeling, and kayaking and offering plenty of stamina activities such as rock climbing, cave diving, and hiking.
