You can choose the onsite accommodation in the beautiful luxurious Villa Can Sky, which is nice, calm and peaceful. The rooms are available in double or single occupancy. The villa is 200 years old and has been renovated. It has a private pool that you can use during the free time, a huge garden and a roof terrace.

You can also choose an offsite accommodation with Rise & Shine Yoga's suggestion or on your own and join the training every day in the morning. One of the choices is a shared or private room in an apartment located in Santa Eulalia.

This Yin yoga teacher training will enable you to create the "Yin space" - the quality and energy within yourself - so it can enrich and balance your life, and so you will be able to offer it to others. The peaceful, compassionate allowing presence that heals all imbalances by just "being with it".

You will learn how to allow yourself to feel emotions, intensity, to reopen shut down senses, and then to able to let all the sensations and emotions (emotion means energy in motion) flow and go instead of diving into the story of it and holding onto them.

Tantric and mindful Buddhist approach

This course is a deeply transformative healing journey, as only by healing and loving yourself first then you can offer these qualities to other, by going trough the experience instead of just talking about the theories of it. There will be a lot of focus on your personal experience and opening up to senses, listening, and landing in your true nature.

Yin yoga has a deeply healing effect. And even tough every person is different, every story is different, and a healing process requires not only the realizations of the patterns and underlying emotional memories and tensions behind every disease but also new conscious choices about your life, you can acknowledge that with appropriate sequences you can rebalance major imbalances in the body with regular Yin practice.

The body imbalances such as allergies, digestive, hormonal problems, back problems, mental problems, blood pressure problems, anxiety symptoms, emotional blockages, and lack of energy, and the emotional disorders such as lack of determination, trust and confidence, anger problems, depression, fears can all be nurtured by appropriate Yin practice with great results.

Eventually, it can transform your life into a more loving, more still, more attentive and caring, enjoyable journey, than the fast-paced western pattern.

    Amazing experience

    PROS Pros: Kata was a wonderful, positive and approachable teacher. The yin teacher training was informative, inspiring and I left Ibiza feeling confident in my ability to teach yin yoga to others. It was lovely to also experience yoga nidra and some flow, in addition to the yin practices. The accommodation was stunning and fully equipped with all the essentials that you needed! I left Ibiza feeling calm, relaxed and empowered. I cannot recommend this teacher training enough!

    Still in Bliss

    CONS Cons: I can't really say any because if something didn't feel right for me, there were always alternatives..... and opportunity for growth in reactions :)

    PROS Pros: I felt immediately peaceful with arrival at the location, my room was amazing and I looked forward every morning to sit in our area by the pool to meditate & practice... even tho I'm not a morning person :) I found Yin Yoga to be exactly what my mind & body needed, and Kata such a strong, loving, knowledgeable open teacher & facilitator. I usually shy from connecting with others right away (my own guarding myself issues) but loved how the process unfolded and I felt comfortable opening up, and then interacting with so many different but important personalities and personal journeys. I miss my temporary family...

    Organizer response: Dear Marle, Usually every teacher training goes deep. It might seem we learn new techniques, new information, new tools to teach others. But it is mainly about ourselves wanting to connect deeper with ourselves and giving ourselves time and space to explore ourselves , so we can grow from there. A real teacher is a teacher because she shares the path that she has been walking herself. The ups and downs that she overcame, the wounds that she healed in herself the tensions that she understood and recognized, and transformed in herself. In our opinion. We are all walking a path towards awakening, we are all working on finding new ways to be. Releasing whatever is not serving us anymore in order to grow into what is joyful, what is expressing our true nature. From the first moment you arrived at the training you carried a huge tension. You didn't communicate anything about it, there was just this huge tension, towards everybody. I just heard that you didn't talk to your room mate for a week. Without apparent reason. The first thing you said to me on your arrival was that you need a tooothbrush and toothpaste because you forgot yours. In a second I came back to you, as I accidentally had a new set of toothbrush in my bag and put it down in the kitchen for you together with a toothpaste.You never said thank you, never asked if you awe me something for that. The last day you expected us to bring you at the airport totally out of the shuttle hours that we offered, when i said it is not possible but i can just give you a refund for that transfer so, you can comfortably get there with a taxi, you were again about to explode without saying anything. Just starring at me like i would be a criminal. I even explained you how to get the bus , for only 4 € to save your taxi money. And again, this was already an extra attention, as training finished at 10am...and I was taking care of you at 6pm in that evening. Rating our organic vegan clean catering meals at 2,5 is outrageous, as they are coming from the most clean vegan rastaurant rated 5stars of Ibiza. The meals might not be so comforting as a nice beefsteak, but we have chosen these meals so they support the energetical transformation that is taking place usually in our training, so that the body doesnt spend a lot of energy on digesting. We did added eggs, tofu and cheese and bread and avocados, tahini, cereals, and fruits, joghurt,as extra if someone wanted to have something more filling, so there were options for that as well. Again, this is not an all inclusive holiday where we have the all you can eat buffet available, as it wouldn't serve the purpose of our training. Usually people say they feel really energized after a week of mostly raw organic vegan eating. I can understand if you are not used to that it can be a bit of a challenge, but again, rating it 2,5 is outrageous. Sorry. A teacher training will always confront people. Some people take the journey and they are transformed and grateful at the end, and some people resist and they will blame you for everything in order to admit that they need to face something. We have been teaching teacher trainings for more then 10 years. We know what we do. And we know that there will be always people freaking out. Even if we give 200% it won't be enough as then they will complain about something else.. to distract themselves from what is really going on inside of them. I keep learning from my teacher in trainings and every time i will meet something inside that might be difficult, that is why i was hiding it under the carpet.. but i came to the training to sort myself out, to feel better, to grow! So i am ok with that. I know it's for my own benefit even if it hurts, things need to come to the surface. And I don't project it on others. Well some people are not that clear. And that is also fine. It is sometimes good to stop for a moment take a breath..and explore what is really taking place here. You never communicated anything with me about your tensions, that you already carried when you arrived. As during the training you also didn't share anything even though there was several invitation to do so, I can say, that I honour you and your tensions. But it doesn't surprise me that it manifested in such a review. As tension needs to come out. I wish you a beautiful healing journey with yin yoga. And I am happy that you enjoyed yoga nidra. It is a wonderful technique to release deep stress and traumas. Blessings, Kata van Doesselaar (lead teacher & co-founder at Rise&Shine Yoga)

    Review by Nelly Drost from Netherlands

    CONS Cons: Iedereen heeft verwachtingen van zo een week en er vielen dingen tegen. Doordat t onderling steeds werd benoemd werd t groot. Jammer dat er op dat moment niet kort op ingespeeld werd.

    PROS Pros: Op een mooie plek leren, ervaren en ontmoeten. Kunnen delen van elkaar ervaring en een stukje zorg voor elkaar.

    Organizer response: As a heartfelt and committed organizer we always express at the beginning of our training if people have any kind of problems, concerns, they should come to us , so we can help. We didn't hear anything from You Nelly, during the training, and it is rather surprising me to read how you rated the training while you seemed to have enjoyed it a lot.Like all the other participants. It takes two to create a great experience and if there is no communication, no sharing, it is difficult to meet ... Blessings, Kata van Doesselaar lead teacher and co-owner at Rise&Shine yoga

  • Review by Kari

    "I attended the May Spring Detox retreat in Ibiza. It was a welcome break from my fast paced life. What a wonderful blessing to be in Ibiza, housed in a tranquil villa with a gorgeous swimming pool. I had 5 star beautiful meals put in front of me 3 times daily, with an option to a juice cleanse. I met and connected with a group of incredibly special people and left the retreat feeling thoroughly uplifted, recharged. We focused in different yoga practices and a variety of meditations. I can highly recommend Kata and Erno as teachers and the retreat as a whole. I will definitely book again in the future!"

  • Review by Lina

    "I landed on Ibiza on 21st April with so many clouds over my head that I was in fact doubting if another yoga teacher training was the right thing to do just now. It turned out that it was exactly the right thing to do. More than other lines of yoga, yin yoga invites you to go within and find that internal and eternal source that knows all, sees all and feels all. It was at times overwhelming but more so it was magical to be guided through a week of learning and introspection by Kata and Erno. Adding elements of yang and yoga nidra to the yin training brought everything together and I really look forward to starting to share yin with my student. And the clouds in my head more than lifted. Remember: you are the sky not the weather :) "

    "What a wonderful yin teacher training. Huge transformation, deepening of my understanding and learning from the best teachers! We became a beautiful family at the end, so much love and care has been shared. Amazing great organic vegan meals, and special care of our organizers."

    "And a plus of the teacher training, so much has been shared about how to create sequences, and that is usually never explained. We gained so much, i feel confident to start o teach Yin yoga in my own studio, and i feel joy sharing the healing power of yin yoga."

    "Last week i joined the ibiza retreat and after a week in my busy life i still feel the energy that i got from the retreat and the island. Any body and everybody will benefit from doing meditation in the sun, feeling your feet in the sand and experience the sweat dripping on your yoga mat during a hot yoga session. Although i am at novice yoga level, i enjoyed this experience a lot! Both kata and erno were really doing their absolute best to organize a trip that suits everybody (glutenfree and diary free food, trip to a fish restauarant, mindblowing sunsets etc)."

    "I can really recommend this trip to anyone who want to enjoy the sun, improve their yoga postures, get more in balance or simply to feel alive again"

    "I wanted to take a moment and allow myself to express my gratitude towards the both of you for not only teaching me the inside-out of this lovely yin and a bit of yan practice, but, to be those anchor who help me to ground inside myself. Magic had happened inside of me and baby steps will soon be steady and strong. I could find the most wonderful combination of words to express how I feel, however, a deep Thank you - without the ocean of details - will be as much explicit. See you soon and around"

I was grateful that she introduced me to Yin yoga, which I felt suited me quite well, therefore proving Kata's great intuition.Her partner Erno offered peaceful meditation sessions in the evening which further added to the retreat experience and blended well with the experience.

    "I had never been on a yoga retreat before so was not sure what to expect but the soulbreath hot yoga retreat was wonderful from beginning to end. The venue was stunning with great facilities, good bed, and wonderful food. The yoga platform on the top of the hill overlooking the valley is the most beautiful spot to practice and the pool, sauna and steam room provided so great relief after the intensive yoga.Kata and Ernos classes were amazing. Great instruction with a real understanding of each of the participants needs. With their wonderful guidance, I was able to further my practice but also explore new postures and even try other types of yoga. The highlight of the retreat for me was the candlelight hot yoga! what a wonderful experience. I would wholeheartedly recommend the retreat to anybody no matter what level of practice they have. The perfect blend of Yoga and Relaxation. Thank you."

    "Thank you Kata, for having started to offer teacher trainings. I think I found the person that gave me exactly what I was looking for! It is during your training that I first ever experienced how it is to accept myself fully as I am, accept my limitations, my body's limitations, and not feel bad about that.I feel such a deep gratitude, the whole experience feel like a homecoming to me. The space that you created was so non-judgmental, and the yin yoga is teaching us the acceptance as well, so I could finally let go of my concerns of me not being good / flexible / young / slim enough. Thank you for this wonderful training!"

    "I thought that this Yin yoga teacher training is going to be like all the other yoga trainings, we learn some new asanas, alignment, etc. but this goes way beyond that! These are just the first three days that we experienced together, but it goes so deep, it brings so many realizations, I am learning so much about who I am, and how I am, and it really feels like a psychological therapy, very enriching and empowering."
