Accommodation

Facilities

  • Sauna
  • Garden
  • Yoga deck

The 3 guest rooms have separate entrances and are offered only as a service for people who do yoga and therapeutic sessions, a maximum of 5 guests. There is one large double room (2 single beds), one normal double room (queen size bed), and one single room (1 single bed), all with their own bathroom (2 attached, 1 in the hall). There is no TV and no air-con, but all rooms have ventilators and central heating. Our guests do NOT get to choose the room online. Guests are never placed in a shared room unless they travel together.

This retreat will be held in a home, not in a hotel. Please take a look at the images provided to have the right expectations. Your main desire should be the program, not a luxury resort (although the house is comfortable and your hosts will do all in their power to support your needs).

The retreat center is in Aleid and Doby’s home, they run the retreats as a couple and live on a separate floor. In the exotic garden and under the roof of the veranda, you can relax on sunbeds or puffs or take a hammock to where you want.

Extra information

For the yoga classes, mats, and meditation pillows are provided. The yoga has a maximum of five participants and they are given outdoors when possible. From April to October, you can be sure to enjoy outdoor yoga. In January, March, November, and December, yoga classes mix outdoor and indoor instruction. As soon as the sun is out, Aleid uses an outdoor coaching "office," which is available most of the year.

For a donation fee, you can also use the three bicycles and the infrared sauna. Your hosts will try to find a balance between connecting and private space for them and for you. You will have quite some time for yourself to rest. You are welcome to bring your own books, movies, or music. You can also use the house's collection. Your hosts like to share what they have, so if you need a specific thing, tool, fire pot, paint, or clay, do ask.

Eco-practices

  • Use of organic cleaning products, recycled toilet and kitchen papers, and avoiding single use plastics. Organizer donates towards innovation especially in plastic replacement. They separate garbage.
  • Extensive water filtering system to not use plastic bottles. Guests are given reusable bottles.
  • Besides the fact that they do not over-use electricity, their electricity provider is 100% sustainable (creating more green electricity demand)
  • The cooking is mostly organic and the hosts shops as much as possible locally produced and they look at packaging options.
  • Use of a low-energy infra-red sauna and an outdoor hot-tub with a wood stove, instead of both high consuming electric sauna or whirlpool.
  • NO pool because the sea is great and next to the center. They have an outdoor shower.
  • They purposely bought property without a pool, because every house has a pool and chlorine is not sustainable.
  • Yoga and Coaching Retreats Mallorca are aware that being located on an island is forcing guests to travel by air, and of course island people want to stay connected. They would ask people to use flights consciously. They participate and invest in the '8 billion trees' project and can highly recommend that. This company also intends to show that sustainable production and care can be a rewarding social enterprise.

The Program

This retreat is suitable for you especially if you’re struggling with obesity, long term stress, repetitive periods of exhaustion, recovery from illness or heavy medication, moderate eating disorders, moderate addictions, and long term difficulty taking care of your physical or mental health.

This retreat is for you if:

  • You need a change but still have to define it
  • You want to pluck up courage to take a major step
  • You want to come together with your partner to solve a relational problem
  • You want to seek support in coping with loss
  • You want to enter a new phase in your life more consciously and energetically
  • You are overburdened or becoming so
  • You are asking yourself whether long term therapy may be necessary
  • You would like to spend time on personal development

For people in this situation, Yoga and Coaching Retreats Mallorca offer a unique form of assistance combined with literally taking a step back from their situation. In this Mallorca retreat, you will be offered therapy, coaching, yoga sessions with time for sightseeing and relaxation. The daily program usually consists of a half day of therapy, coaching, or preparation, leaving the other half of the day free.

Yoga class

The form of yoga you are going to practice is Transformational yoga. This style of yoga was developed by Ganga Hoogendoorn. Experiences and notions manifest themselves in your body, self-image, relationships, and behavior. Transformation refers to the transition from fear to love.

In individual lessons, you will pay attention to a chosen theme or work on investigation and relief of a physical complaint. Aleid has a strongly developed intuition and approach to the body and breathing. She doesn’t think yoga is just a series of positions which you can learn. You can vary each position and each time it can have a different effect.

Possible themes include physical awareness, managing pain, coping with your limits, and with specific emotions. You will work on your capacity to move from inside, building up strength, creating space, and finding an inner balance. You will deepen your breathing and focus it on over-tense parts of your body. You will also learn to use your breathing as a source of energy.

Counseling and coaching

By means of counseling from a cognitive behavioral and solution-focused therapy approach, you will find an answer to the issue you seek for. Almost everybody goes through difficult periods in their life. Perhaps your self-confidence has declined. Or your faith in others and the world may have been harmed by particular experiences. During the talks, Aleid can help you to regain confidence.

By means of coaching, Aleid can stimulate you to explore various sides of yourself. For example, you may want to operate differently at home or at work, but don't yet know exactly how. Or you may want to brainstorm about creative processes.

Couple package

This retreat is also available for two persons traveling together (a friend or a family member, just anyone you like to bring). The first person will have all main program while the second will only have yoga program. However, the main program session can also be used for two.

Included excursions

Short walks in the area included, often late afternoon. It can be discussed if you would like to visit the neighbouring villages. Santanyi has a very nice market on Wednesdays and Saturdays, 15-minute by bicycle or car drop off possible. We provide cycle and walking routes on maps and guidebooks.

From May till September, guests can join going to great local flamenco and other concerts in an outdoor venue at least once per week.

Retreat location

This retreat will take place in Cala Figuera, Spain. There are walking and cycling paths from the house along the coast and into the typical Mediterranean backlands with forests, flowers, olive, and fruit trees. The house is on the outer ring of the beautiful, natural, small fishing harbor.

Just one street down, you will see the ever changing light on the water and the typical Mallorquin white fishing boats, the llauts. You will also see the fishermen work on their nets and sell their catch every afternoon. There is a small boulevard with a cliff and sea view restaurants nearby.

Further down, you will find a few shops, a mini market, a cash machine, diving, kayak, and SUP and boat tours. Just beyond the harbor is Parque Natural Mondrago, a large area with protected forest landscape, cliffs, and two stunning white beaches. You will see they resemble the Caribbean, with turquoise waters.

In warm months, you may head out early to do yoga on the beach. Nearby, you will also find Santanyi, one of the bigger villages with more services, including a small hospital, post office, galleries, nice shops, two big supermarkets, cafés, and restaurants, some of them with weekly live music.

From Cala Figuera you can also visit wonderful places, including Coves de Drac, Cabrera Island, Randa Monastery, and Monasterio de San Salvador. There are also famous beaches where you can relax and take in the sun, including the famous Es Trench Beach.
