LOCATION | IBIZA
Ibiza's tangible magic and stunning beauty offers the perfect location for our retreat.
The retreat will take place in two beautiful adjacent villas, set amongst shady pines and olive trees, in 'the campo', yet nearby to the vibrant and pretty town of Santa Gertrudis.
Within the villa's grounds, you’ll find an abundance of space, including landscaped gardens and woods to meditate amongst, two pools to cool off in the Ibizan sunshine and multiple terraces, all set in the peaceful Ibenican countryside. Alongside indoor and outdoor yoga shalas and ceremonial spaces, you’ll find large family style kitchens, therapy rooms, shady lounges and gorgeous communal eating spaces.
One of our villas, ‘Es Joncaret’ was once the home of Ra Uhuru, the founder of The Human Design System. Under the sacred fig tree in the Sanctuary's garden, he channelled some very special information which led to the development of this insightful system, which can be used as a manual for each person's unique design. Ra lived here at the property for 10 years and he planted and cared for much of the garden and built the bungalows. His very special and unique presence is felt all over the property and the garden. Many people feel it immediately as they arrive, others just feel it in a sense of 'not wanting to leave'.
YOGA | MICKI RAMONDT
When Micki took her first yoga class in early 2006 in Philadelphia PA USA, it was love at first asana. Initially it was the physical challenge of it, soon she began to notice how it calmed her mind and opened her heart. Since than she has devoted herself to the practice of yoga. And in 2008, she completed her first teacher training. In 2011 she packed up her world and moved it to London UK to begin again, a humbling experience. All of which is not forgotten but instead shared. Her teaching style fuses her life experiences with a creative and dynamic practice and a spot-on spiritual dimension. It is challenging as it is compassionate. You are left feeling energised and inspired.
Our week long cleanse will incorporate aspects of naturopathic nutritional healing, yogic kriyas, deeply rejuvenating yin and restorative asana, energetic and shamanic cleansing rituals and a whole lot more. All the elements of the retreat will be carefully designed to raise your vibration to the highest available levels, leaving you clear, shining and connected.
Our approach to cleansing is truly holistic and nurturing. We will slowly work towards a two day juice fast in the middle of the week’s schedule, by beginning the retreat with Chaya Kitchen menus, meaning delicious, pure plant-based, organic, alkaline-forming and hydrating meals. By eliminating sugar, dairy, caffeine, gluten and eventually cooked food, we will gently prepare our bodies for a two day period of organic juicing only.
Following the two day juice fast, we will begin to integrate solid food and break the fast gently, ensuring you leave the retreat grounded, vibrant and ready to take on your world!
Days 1 - 3 Twice daily organic, healing meals, energised waters and juices
Days 3 - 5 Pure juice fasting, 4 juices per day
Days 5 - 7 Breaking the fast, integrating solid food and celebration feast!
During retreat, we will offer you the opportunity to work with additional deeply cleansing naturopathic techniques, such as castor oil packing, hydrotherapy and enemas. Our experienced team will work with you to support these beautiful healing therapies, should you wish to try them.
MENUS | CHAYA KITCHEN
Using the bountiful abundance of local fruit and vegetables Ibiza has to offer, Chaya Kitchen will prepare delicious, gourmet 50% raw, plant-based meals. Full of tasty super foods, designed to cleanse and lighten you mentally and physically, whilst energising and brightening you from the inside out.
Homemade nut and seed mylks, superfood smoothies and a organic juices are a standard on all Chaya retreats. Being super-foodie's at heart, we ensure there's absolutely never any compromise on any aspect of the eating experience. We look forward to surprising and delighting you in just how good truly healthy food can taste and feel. We believe cleansing could be delicious and fun?
