About this trip

When was the last time you truly relaxed? Today’s world is so busy that we risk losing sight of what living really means. Stress is one of the main causes of burnout, relationship issues, and health problems. Relaxation is a necessary luxury. Join Diosa Hayya for an unforgettable experience (www.diosahayya.com).  This retreat will focus on relaxing, slowing down, being present, disconnecting, appreciating nature, food, health, and living consciously. Hosted by Cynthia & Gaby, who will take care of your every need, you will be able to choose how active or relaxing you'd like your holiday to be.

Daily yoga classes with the unique Anna McColl, from Yoga Wanders. Morning sessions will focus on breathing and yoga flow, while evening sessions will include partner yoga, restorative yoga, mantra chanting, etc.  Not only will you be able to learn or improve your yoga techniques, but you will also have the opportunity to try a number of activities from our 'tasting menu' : test your balance on a Standup Paddleboard (SUP yoga), snap your fingers to the rhythm in our music workshop, groove to the beat in our Bhangra and Bollywood dance session, enjoy a silent meditative walk in the pine forest of Ibiza, swim in the island's turquoise waters, pamper yourself with a massage in the cabana by the pool or simply relax to a sound bath at sunset. Meals are served al fresco with delicious nutritious food sourced from ecological farms located in close proximity to our amazing villa, Can Amonita. We serve morning juices and teas, followed by a generous healthy brunch after yoga and in the evening you will be treated to Mediterranean dinner dining under the stars.

Before You Go

Yoga:
Even if you have never set foot in a yoga studio, you will enjoy and benefit from our retreat. Our retreats focus mainly on yoga for beginners and intermediates; our yoga instructor has experience in teaching groups of different levels. The goal for the week is to help you find an inner peace, optimism and a greater calmness in everyday challenges, with your body and your health.

Accommodation:
Each bedroom has two beds and an en suite bathroom. You will share a room with someone of the same gender.

What to bring:
Summer clothes, swimwear, sun protection, comfy yoga wear, walking shoes, water flask/canteen.

Money:
The currency used in Spain is the Euro. There are cash machines at the airport. You will need cash to pay for additional services and treatments during your stay and for anything you may wish to buy when you're exploring the island (e.g. water, snacks, souvenirs, taxi).

Transportation:
We strongly recommend that you rent a car, as this enables you to explore Ibiza. If you would like to leave the venue, it is best to travel by car as there are no public transport services nearby. We recommend doyouspain.com or OKcarhire. Car hire would cost approximately €100 for a week. It is advisable to opt for full insurance cover when renting a car. If you travel alone, you can share/rent with someone else. We would be happy to assist you in booking a rental car. If you plan to stay on the retreat for the whole week you can get to us easily by taxi from the airport (approx. €45 each way).

Food & Beverages:
We will start off the day with herbal teas to stimulate your digestive system. Before morning yoga, you can avail yourself of fresh fruits and light snacks. After yoga, we will serve fresh fruit juices or smoothies. This will be followed by a sumptuous brunch of healthy and comfort foods. Throughout the day there will be teas, snacks and water available. Dinner will be served every evening, except for the one free evening. The dishes will be predominantly plant based. We will include poultry or fish depending on guest feedback (obtained via guest welcome pack questionnaire prior to the retreat). Wine will be served with evening meals (one bottle for every 4 guests).

Check-in:
You can check-in to the villa from 2pm on Saturday 26 August. The first group session will take place around 6.30pm, followed by dinner.

Check-out:
You will have your last morning yoga session on Friday 1 September, followed by brunch. You can relax and enjoy the pool but would need to depart the villa by 2pm.

Ibiza:
We encourage you to explore this amazing island. You are free to choose how to spend your time with us. Every afternoon is your time to discover Ibiza’s nature, quaint villages and beaches. Please bear in mind that no activity in our programme is obligatory. This is your holiday!

Hello! We are two island girls hailing from Malta. After years of corporate life in London, we have crossed paths again on the mystical island of Ibiza. Like you, we love life and have experienced the various facets of this amazing world from love to pain and everything in between. Our passion for wellbeing has led us to create Diosa Hayya, which using a combination of Spanish and Maltese words, means Goddess Alive. Our ambition is to provide you with an unforgettable holiday. As Ibiza residents, we are blessed to be able to work with some of the best locally-based teachers, therapists, instructors and guides, in order to provide you with an organic and authentic island retreat. What makes us tick? We love music, dance, yoga, food prepared with fresh produce & lots of love, good wine and the Mediterranean sunshine! We want to share all this with you.
