Our huge Infinity swimming pool is non-chlorine, has a faux beach, jacuzzi and stunning ocean and sunset views.

You will practice in an 85m2 open-air wooden covered yoga deck overlooking the pool and ocean, and just in case we also have a beautiful indoor yoga room which is just as big. There are chill-out areas, inner patio with showers, lovely colorful garden. Lounge area with sound system, projector , specialized library and chimney. We have an open kitchen where you can observe our chefs preparing your meals with love and care. Laundry room, internet connection and safe box are also at your disposal.

Sunset Mountain is a Hatha yoga center. The classes are based on the Sivananda system. There are between 4 or 5 hour daily classes during the week (theory, asana, pranayama and meditation classes). Some of the classes are more physical and vigorous and some are more recuperative and relaxing. All classes are optional. After all, this is a holiday not a boot camp! It is fine if you decide to sleep or spend more time on the beach in the afternoon. A big part of yoga is listening to your body's needs and a holiday is also about rest and recharging.

All yoga classes are held in English and there will be always 2 teachers (one leader and one assistant) to ensure a correct performance and to attend individual needs. Our yoga program includes 4 hours of theory divided in 3 parts during the week:

First theory class (1 hour):

During this session you will receive important and inspiring information about the yoga philosophy allowing you to understand in a very simple and deeper way different aspects about the origin, types, and goals of Yoga. You will learn about Vedanta Philosophy, the three Gunas, the four paths of Yoga and the 8 limbs of Raja Yoga.

Second theory class (1 hour):

You will learn about the chakras, the etheric body and how yoga benefits not only your physical body but also your energetic body. The connections between the Chakras and your glandular system and the importance of bringing your practice to a deeper pranic level.

Third theory class (2 hours):

You will learn about Ayurveda principles based on a correct diet and healthy life style. During this class you will receive many important tips about food combinations and personal diet according to your nature and your Dosha ( personal physical and mental constitution).

Asana and pranayama sessions

2 morning sessions of 3 hours each, where you will learn the complete traditional Sivananda system which includes sun salutations, 2 different kinds of pranayamas (breathing techniques), 12 basis asanas (steady poses) and final relaxation. The 3 hour session will allow you to receive important and specific information about the correct performance and alignment of the asanas.

1 additional morning session (1 and half hour) of Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskara) to ensure that you will perfectly learn it.

1 additional morning session (1 and half hour) of Pranayama where you will learn how to control the flow of prana through different kinds of breathing techniques.

2 afternoon sessions of 3 hours each. These classes will be more dynamic and vigorous and there will be taught a large range of different asanas with many variations.

1 morning session of 3 hours of detox Yoga (Sukushma Vyayama), which is an ancient component of yoga not known to most of the schools of yoga today in the world. This is one of the few systems of exercises in the world where each and every part of the body including each organ, each joint and each muscle is taken into consideration.

1 afternoon session about 3 hours which will be a resume about all you have learned during the week.

Guided meditations

Each yoga session will finish with 30 minutes of guided meditation. Every time you will learn a different technique, so that you can have a better vision about the form of meditation which could be more suitable to your nature:

Personal program approach

Whether you are a beginner or experienced, our retreat is designed to accommodate your level, so if you have never tried yoga do not feel intimidated, we will assist you throughout the week. The Ibiza Yoga retreat is a great option for both advanced yoga students as well as beginners; all activities are developed with personal attention to each guests preferences and goals.

The intense yoga classes will tune up your body, mind, and soul. And being away and resting from your normal routine, practicing yoga, meditation and being outdoors in nature, may help to give a fresh perspective and awareness of yourself and your life. You may prefer to take the week more as a retreat, with more silence and reflection during the free time. Or, you may just prefer to relax and be on holiday! Most importantly you begin from where you are.

Lena Tancredi

Lena was born in Brazil in 1969. She has been living in Ibiza since 1990. She is an artist and Sivananda Hatha yoga teacher. She started practicing yoga following a paralysis caused by a thermal shock that mainly affected half of her face. The doctor recommended, apart from acupuncture and other techniques for recover, the practice of yoga. This is how she started to recover and regain all the movements of her face. But, she also discovered a big passion of this philosophy in life, which years later made her become a teacher.

In addition to teaching yoga in Ibiza, she also dedicates her life to painting, showing her work regularly on the island. Through yoga, she has been changing her habits and her way of thinking. Her desire in teaching yoga is to share the art of yoga that has changed her life, and brought joy, grace, strength, inner peace, beauty, and a sense of empowerment in all that she does.

She is a certified Hatha yoga teacher with a diploma recognized internationally, and accredited by the Yoga Alliance. She graduated in London; her teacher training was taught by Barbara Gordon, founder of Sivananda Center in London, Nora Belton, and Swami Saradananda, author of several books including "Yoga Mind and Body" and "Yoga Cookbook". They were disciples of Swami Visnhu-Devananda, among the first yoga masters in the West to develop a training in 1969 and author of several books including "The Complete Book of Yoga" and "Meditation and Mantra". Later, she also studied Yoga and Ayurveda in Haridwar, a holy city in India, also known as the world capital of Yoga. Her teachers were graduated in Yogic sciences, and both legitimate children of a marriage of gurus.

The venue is located in the west side of the island, close to the most beautiful sandy beaches of Ibiza. Ibiza has a unique micro climate. 300 days a year of sunshine, and an average day temperature of 23.

    " Sunshine yoga retreat is simply blissful. I had the most amazing week ever. Lena, Estar and the rest of the staff there are all so welcoming, genuine and knowledgeable. It could not have been more amazing. The venue is close to the beaches and you can easily go out when you dont have yoga classes (good to have a car to do so). The yoga lifestyle and technique is explained in a way that I have not heard before. I learned more in the last week about yoga than I have done in the last 12 years of practicing. Lena and Estar truly inspired me to learn and practice more yoga. This retreat is a must for anyone wanting to learn more, be inspired and to refresh your mind and soul. Ill definitely be back next year. Thanks. "

    "I had a wonderful time. The position of the house is amazing. The pool, the yoga deck...everything is stunning. Food was delicious and very well balanced. The classes were very good. The program is intense. It was nice to be free to participate or not. I missed only one class as all of them were so good. I also enjoyed the theoretic parts of the class, the explanation of the spirit of yoga, the Ayurvedic class... Lena and Andrea's approach to yoga is not "fanatic". It's about well-being and balance. Happiness and lightness. It's joyful. And still very deep. Since my retreat I have taken the habit of practicing every day and I am improving quickly. I therefore feel much better in all respects."

This is a perfect place for yoga on this magical island, and you, Lena are very inspiring and giving abundantly your energy. Your teaching is clear, strong, precise and heart warming with devotion. And, very important, with humor!I loved your classes with eyes closed, I could feel the chakras. And I never understood Ayurveda in confusing books, now I get it! I came here quite closed up, but I got my vata strongly back, I am so glad!The partner yoga with Marta was very special, she is so sweet! Thanks for the fantastic massage too.
