Zarah Boden has always been amazed by the capacity, grace, and intelligence of the human body and how closely this vessel is connected to the minds and inner being. Dance was her first outlet and has always been a huge part of her life. It was during training for a Diploma in dance in Melbourne, Australia that she discovered the benefits of yoga whilst nursing various injuries and trying to gain more focus.
Her yoga journey began a long time ago, as her mother is also a yoga teacher. During law school, yoga was her safe heaven, the place where she could find some peace after work and study. She loved the dynamic flow of Vinyasa and started meditating every day. After the university, she worked as a human resources Manager and started an own employment law company that still exists, but the office jobs didn't make her happy and she felt a deep longing to travel the world and get to learn and understand more about yoga and the yogic lifestyle, more than the physical practice alone.
Hugh specializes in combining the yoga discipline of Ashtanga yoga and the mental discipline of Buddhist Mindfulness meditation. He teaches a broad spectrum of people in a wide range of settings. Whilst he has more than 30 years of experience in both disciplines, he started teaching yoga in 1995 when he was asked to share his practice at a time when there were almost no Ashtanga teachers available and hasn’t stopped since.
Opale has been teaching at Ibiza Yoga for 10 years and practicing yoga steadily since 1995. She has been living in India for a few months a year since 1992 and studied different types of yoga like Iyengar, Astanga, Vinyasa, and Vishranta yoga. In France, she was certified to teach Vinyasa and Vishranta yoga by Gerard Arnaud after a two year teacher's training course at the Federation Francaise of Yoga in Paris.
To Mascha, yoga is a philosophy, a way of life, and also a healing method for body, mind, and soul. She teaches for beginners, intermediate, and advanced students. Her life has brought her to yoga eight years ago. She teaches yoga to communicate awareness and love instead of fear and meditation and mindfulness instead of hurry and greed.
Rena is passionate about the health benefits that Yoga has brought to her life, on and off the mat. Having been trained with a background in performance, movement & dance, she always enjoyed the physical & viewed the body as a wonderful tool for expression. Dabbling in various styles of Yoga over the last 10 years from Bikram to Ashtanga, it was only when she discovered Vinyasa Flow whilst in Thailand that she immediately was drawn to the creative sequencing & sense of grounding & inner peace it gave her. That is when she made the the life changing decision to train as a Yoga Teacher.
Lucia first started practicing yoga and meditating 10 years ago as a way of supporting a demanding career as a Business Intelligence Consultant. She soon discovered that yoga could be extended outside of the mat to improve every aspect of her life. She trained as an Ashtanga Yoga Teacher with Rolf Naujokat and is a regular student of Indian Master Balu Thevar. Lucia has also trained in Ayurveda, Fascia Massage and Reiki. For the last five years Lucia has been teaching yoga and organizing holistic lifestyle workshops in the UK, India and Central America.
Nadia teaches various styles of Yoga from Hatha yoga, vinyasa yoga, pranayama, yoga nidra, yin yoga, gentle flow, dynamic flow and meditation. She also organizes Ecstatic Dancing Ceremony. Her philosophy is to adapt her classes to the students needs/experience, not the other way around - so what she teaches can vary from group to group. Nadia usually teaches to an open level class so she is able to give variations to suit any levels. She is also experienced in teaching private classes.
British born Elizabeth discovered yoga 17 years ago coming from a dance performance background. She found the practice of yoga extremely healing, nourishing and supportive. Elizabeth has been practicing yoga for 17 years, teaching for 12 years, and for the past 7 years teaching around Europe and South East Asia. She teaches dynamic Vinyasa yoga asana and Yin yoga and likes to help individuals carve their own paths and be able to express and open up their own unique joy within, through asana and practice.

Programma bestond alleen uit 1x yoga en 1x per dag eten. Lunch of diner, erg lekker eten! (Ontbijt, uitgebreide ontbijtgranen met melk en sappen, koffie/thee en fruit zijn de gehele dag beschikbaar). Veel vrije tijd, wat ik erg prettig vond. Ik had de kamer voor mezelf (room 1) omdat er niet veel boekingen waren, erg fijne locatie! Mooi, schoon en gave yoga locatie, bovenop het dek omringt door de mooie natuur! Lessen van Amy waren geweldig. Verwacht geen luxe yoga retraite. Maar een heerlijke plek om tot rust te komen. Het is wel handig om een auto te hebben want de villa ligt vrij afgelegen. Wel heel dicht bij het strand!
Het was erg koud in de villa, verwarming stond niet aan (vanwege kostenbesparende redenen?), wat het soms binnen niet aangenaam maakte zonder jas en sjaal. Onder een deken (3 stuks) was het slapen prima te doen.
Let wel: De pagoda's zijn supergaaf om in te slapen maar erg koud in de herfst/winter.
Ontbijt en lunch zijn inbegrepen voor het diner zou je nog een bak cereals kunnen nemen of fruit, of zelf koken. Het is handiger als ze 3 maaltijden zouden aanbieden zodat je niet per se weg hoeft (vooral lastig als je geen auto hebt). Verder fijn plekje, zou zeker terug gaan!

Das Essen war hervorragend. Durchgehend Vegetarisch und meistens auch Vegan und sehr abwechslungsreich. In der Küche waren auch immer frische Früchte und ein Vorrat an Müsli und Cerealien mit verschiedenen Pflanzenmilchen jederzeit verfügbar.
Die Anlage und der nahegelegrne Strand sind sehr schön.
In der Unterkunft teilt man sich das Bad und die Küche. Die Sauberkeit der Räume spiegelt also den Standard der jeweiligen Bewohner wieder. In der Zeit in der wir im Retreat waren, war dies in der Küche leider bedenklich. Wir hatten zudem ein Zimmer direkt neben der Küche bzw. dem Gemeinschaftsraum. Da die Räume sehr Geräuschdurchlässig sind, hört man es auch gut im Zimmer, wenn sich jemand mitzt in der Nacht noch einen Snack gönnt.
Das Yoga war nicht wirklich für Anfänger geeignet, da die Haltungen nicht im Detail erklärt wurden und bei falsch Ausführung nicht korrigiert wurden. Der Kurs war aber gut und logisch strukturiert.

yogalessen met Lucia waren heel fijn !
Weinig van de organisatoren gezien, alleen om resterende te betalen bedrag op te halen. Weinig betrokkenheid, Rommelige introductie-presentatie van Sarah zondagochtend. Van kamergenoot en andere gasten moeten horen hoe een aantal dingen werkten. Voelde aan lot overgelaten.
Douche hing half los van de muur, stopcontact in de badkamer los van de muur, wc-papier op, fruit "vergeten"aan te vullen voor ontbijt (zelf moeten halen)

Nice location away from the party-places of Ibiza
Great Yoga course and teacher
Good balance of Yoga, meditation (on a very nice shady roof top terrace) and free time
The accommodation was nice except that it could have been a bit more looked after and most tools in the kitchen (stove, dishwasher) were not working.
All in all a good price-performance ratio, I recommend it and would stay there again any time!
Ibiza yoga is perfectly organised and is situated next to Benirras - The best place ever for a swim in the sea! 3 hours of yoga every day is the perfect way to start your day, even if you don't practise it often like myself. Loved every minute of my trip - I even booked to stay on the week after!!! Didn't want to leave. I would recommend a car hire so you can go and see the rest of the island in the afternoons.
Ibiza Yoga was a wonderful experience. The villa was beautiful and had a view over Beniras Bay which was magical. The 3 hour yoga sessions each morning were absolutely fantastic and the yoga teacher, Helen Cockle, was extremely experienced and in tune with each of the participants, I learned a lot. The yoga deck had a beautiful view which looked out over the bay and mountains. The food which was delivered each day after yoga was plentiful and so tasty. I loved every minute with Ibiza Yoga and cannot wait to go back.

Paradise! Magnificent views, brilliant yoga, great facilities, and delicious food! Excellent! I've been here for 3 weeks and feel thoroughly rejuvenated. Whether you love yoga, want to learn it or advance your level this is the place.

This is my 4th yoga retreat in exclusive and charming locations and the practice aside (the teacher Hugh was amazing) it was my worst one...The breakfast was about non existent (cheap yogurts, muesli and juices), I even had to beg for yogurts for 24 hours mid-stay. The kitchen was most often unclean and I had to do more washing than I usually do at home to make it acceptable.The lunches were good but served garlic, peppers and cucumber almost every day when I had specified being allergic to these aliments ahead of my stay. I was on plain rice most of the week, really not nice.The house was tied up but no cleaning was done in the bedrooms where we would mostly need it and the kitchen was only cleaned once a day before lunch, whereas we were clearly having meals there 3 times a day so it deserved a constant care.To finish with, we hear some really negative feedbacks from people staying at Villa Rocas mentioning very limited access to bathrooms and food, poor reception when they were complaining above all, they mentioned that water and coconut water were charged a euro more in Villa Palmas than in Villa Rocas, which is very unrespectful.My positive feedbacks would be about the villa location and bedroom which are really nice and High our teacher was amazing, he really made the stay great!" I've just returned from a 3 week stay in ibiza yoga, had such an amazing time and would be straight back in the morning... I would say it definitely is the best value yoga retreat this side of India! Granted if it's super luxury you are expecting this won't be the place for you, there ain't nothing fancy just simple clean country living beside a beach with some yoga! The staff and owners were lovely, some organised trips and mountain walks are planned throughout the week if you want to get out and see some of the sights... The accommodation is clean and atmosphere relaxed, a glass of wine isn't frowned upon if you wish the have one on the near by beach watching the sunset In evening either which is nice so whatever you're looking from a yoga holiday if it's a strict detox or a more relaxed yoga trip you can cater your stay to suit yourself with some amazing sunsets and some great drumming circles on the beach (which you must go down to on a Sunday evening to experience) thrown in for good measure... I did not want to come home and am already planning my next trip there! Perfect:)
Just missing the "Ibiza Yoga" paradise!!!One week wasn't enough....if you have this experience you will understand why I'm speaking about Paradise. We were a little yoga group and it was a big advantage to enjoy the empty place and the relaxing atmosphere.I have had a great holiday. The others yogi were nice and we had great time together. It was like being in a community. Everyone has to respect the others and the rules of the Villa.The location, Villa Roca, has nice and simple bedrooms, 2 common areas (kitchen and living room), a beautiful yoga deck and a huge garden. The yoga lessons were amazing, thanks to the wonderful surroundings and to a special yoga teacher. The yoga deck is comfortable and all the necessary props, cushion and mats are available and this was so useful to not bring all from home.The owners, the manager and the volunteer were really hospitable and kind, taking care of any need. Each day they were asking me if I would need something, if I felt good, or just giving me information and suggestion about the island and the surroundings...They are well organized.I really appreciated the website and the way you book your week. Before coming there I could have so many information about the retreat, the planning, the activities and the place...so I was prepared and well equipped.The vegetarian food was really good and so various, I don't know how they could cook each day something different. The breakfast was self-service ( a good idea..because everyone could wake up when he wants) and during the day you can have fruit, tea and more available 24h!The Villa is really 2 minutes from the Benirras beach and this was the most important thing for me. In fact it was my dream to practice there and it became true.Thanks to the relaxing and quiet area, I could break and be far away from my noisy and crowded city for just one week, that looks as one month. It was the perfect way to be disconnected from everything where you can recharge yourself trough yoga/meditation, sounds of nature and friends and more. I hope to come back as soon as possible.........

These rainy days in the North England reminded me that it is time to book my next Yoga holiday in Ibiza! I went to Ibiza Yoga in September last year, and as always had a fantastic time. Blue sky, great food, great company and amazing yoga tuition! A very relaxed and friendly atmosphere and all of that a few minutes walk away from the beach. Can't wait for the next escape.

I went to Ibiza Yoga at the end of July and had a brilliant week. Met amazing people, delicious vegetarian food (thank you Helen!) and Yoga was first rate. I was worried about 3 hrs classes every day, but it just went so fast. I practice a lot of Yoga in the UK but after classes with Arlette my practice really transformed, it's been amazing. I stayed at Villa Rocca, it's a beautiful villa. Simple, but with character and we had everything we needed. The place is ran smoothly, the staff friendly. We have been given the time and space to just enjoy ourselves. Oh and another highlight: boat trip on the friday afternoon. Highly recommended! Thank you again.
