with Jory & Sandy
- 15 t/m 22 june 2019-
Join us for a exceptional week with international yoga teachers Jory Serota (USA) and Sandy Karsten (NL). Jory and Sandy will take you on an in-depth journey through Applied Yoga, Critical Alignment Yoga, Restorative and Yin Yoga.
The retreat will take place on in Ibiza, the island of nature lovers, soul-seekers and spiritual yogis. You will enjoy your yoga classes overlooking green rolling valleys and breathtaking sunsets. All the meals will be organic and freshly prepared. Other than yoga, there is ample time for yourself. You can lay by the pool, explore the island with a rental car, go to the beaches or receive a massage. This will be an inspiring yoga holiday in the heart of Ibiza that screams for outdoor yoga at the pool, meditation in the garden and asana/pranayama classes in the recording studios of musical legends.
Ibiza offers more than just a lively nightlife. You will find pure, unspoiled nature, white sandy beaches, picturesque villages and a plentitude of tranquility. It is the ideal place for a yoga retreat.
Location and facilities
In the northern part of Ibiza, Can Pep Sitges is a green oasis of peace. Rurally located in a beautiful landscape of almond, lemon and olive trees, this is your chance to experience a truly authentic Spanish finca.
This stylish, renovated country house features a shaded yoga deck by the pool and a large studio inside. In the spacious garden there are several shady spots in the grass for yoga and meditation.
There are a total of seven bedrooms and six bathrooms so plenty of space for everyone to attend. From the large swimming pool, in addition to the exquisite sunsets, you will enjoy beautiful views of the Morna valley hills.
Can Pep Sitges is close to Sant Llorenç de Balàfia. It is only a few minutes away from the various northern beaches and many small bays with crystal clear sea water. The Hippy Market is only 10 minutes by car.
The finca is very quiet in the Morna Valley, 7 km from Santa Eulalia, 16 km from Ibiza town and 20 km from the airport. The nearest supermarket is at 1.5 km.

Group trip or individual?
This is not a group trip or a cruise. Your involvement in this retreat is completely voluntary and can be whatever you make it. It can be a yoga vacation if you’d like or you can create it to be a true yoga immersion. The schedule, your inclinations and in the moment feelings can determine this.
Participation in yoga classes mandatory?
Absolutely not. Participation in the classes offered is non-committal, you can choose if you’d like to participate or not. We recommend taking all the classes as this is a yoga retreat, but at any point if you need a break, please feel free!
What does the structure of the classes during the day look like?
The day begins with a light breakfast and then a gentle yoga class to prepare and open the body. This will be done through both Restorative and Yin Yoga. The second class in the morning class will be more intense as we go deeper into Asana and Functional Movement. Whether an Applied Yoga class with Jory or a Critical Alignment class with Sandy, the week will be designed and sequenced smoothly.
Longer Yin or Restorative Yoga classes are offered on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. During the day, the intensity is gradually increased to close with a sitting or lying meditation.
What can you do when there are no classes?
The location of our retreat is beautiful so there are plenty of excursions you can take. Whether walking or cycling, visiting the beaches or swimming in the ocean, you will feel quite fulfilled during your time.
Fancy more action? There is a vibrant nightlife in Ibiza and some beaches with live music and DJs.
The Hippy Markets in Punta Arabi or Las Dahlias are actually near the villa. There is also plenty of shopping in one of the nearby villages if you want to experience that part of the culture.
But you do not have to leave to have a good time! The pool at Can Pep Sitges is gorgeous and there are many quiet places in the garden to take a nap, read a book or meditate.
