The Teachers retreat – IBIZA 2018

2nd – 8th of June 2018

“You can learn many things from books but you will only get a true understanding of yourself through practice.  If you ever go on to teach, then always practice first.  Don’t lose your practice just to teach” Hamish Hendry 

As a teacher I know how hard it can be to strike the balance between your own practice and teaching others.   I think it is a shame that on the market there seems to be so many retreats that only go so deep, with a commercial need to be accessible for everyone.  I really feel that WE as teachers need retreats too, of course we do, no not a teacher training, a RETREAT!  A teacher training has some kind of end goal, a retreat is just a space for you to make space for yourself again.  A magnificently, refreshing, inspiring, uplifting, fire igniting retreat.  I hope that by the end of the retreat you are so full with love for yourself you feel excited to share it again!

Welcome to “The teachers retreat – Ibiza 2018” – This retreat is for you if you are wanting to dive into the inner work, boost your confidence and feel refreshed and inspired to teach! We will be talking through ancient scriptures and yoga philosophy, practicing challenging and fun sequencing.  With segments around  yoga business and making a living, all while having the time to totally retreat and chill out too.  Teacher trainings are amazing but sometimes they are so full on, we leave feeling like we need a holiday to get over it.  I want this to be perfect balance of going deep, learning a lot but also having plenty of time to sunbathe, have fun, chill and explore!   And that is why I am passionate about bringing this retreat to life!  

I am so excited to be inviting you guys to my favourite Island in the whole world.  Ibiza has been a home away from home for me for many years, the island has pure magic to offer.  I will be able to recommend places to visit and things to do for those of you who want to explore, we are on the sunset side of the island, and one of my favourite beaches to watch is just a 15 minute drive. Our incredible finca is located in the hills, the perfect retreat venue.  I can help you team up with other yogis if you wish to rent and share a car.
