Villa and Ibiza
We are so excited to have found the most perfect location for our first ever summer retreat in August 2017 at the stunning Casa Lakshmi Luz.
Casa Lakshmi Luz is a true oasis, a heavenly space that holds the group energy, amidst the peace and tranquillity of the beautiful Ibizan countryside. The interior of our new home is bright, spacious and welcoming. Step outside onto the pool terraces and chill-out gardens and outdoor yoga deck, with Moroccan influences, there are many spaces to rest your head, siesta, relax and dream – choose from sun or shade, comfy sun lounger or colourful hammock. Casa Lakshmi Luz is located ten minutes from the golden sands and turquoise waters of Cala Nova and only a 15-minute drive from two beautiful beaches in Ibiza, Benirras and Aguas Blancas. Ibiza old town is a 15-minute drive away and the airport is a 20-minute drive.
The retreat will start at 4-5pm on Sunday 20th August and finish 10am Saturday 26th August.
There will be a welcome yoga class on arrival, two yoga classes on full retreat days and one on Saturday morning.
We kick start the day with either sunrise yoga, trail running or a combo (however all scheduled activities are optional). Followed by a nourishing, fuelling and delicious breakfast, varied to suit all needs with power smoothies and cleansing juices.
In the morning practice Gemma will lead you through a 60-90-minute dynamic vinyasa flow depending on the schedule, be prepared to sweat in a nourishing and cleansing practice.
On some of the afternoons you will have the option to trail run. George will lead groups on runs between 5-20km depending on the group’s needs and abilities. The yoga will be a 90-minute practice which will vary between a yin yoga, restorative and other nourishing practices which will totally compliment your time in sunny Ibiza. Please note that the schedule will be designed in a way that you can do ALL activities, just the yoga or rest it all out!
We will all enjoy a delicious supper together to unwind and nourish our bodies. One night will be free for everyone to go and explore the island and the local cuisine.
We will also be offering optional yoga workshops and optional 1-2-1 sessions with Gemma to deepen your yoga practice. We will also organise optional excursions together around the island. Or you can feel free to go to the beach, nap, swim in the pool, sunbath, explore the island, book in for massages or do whatever your heart desires.
You can tailor this Wellness retreat to your own body’s desires and needs, whether you want a relaxing retreat or a fun energetic experience, all activities will be thoroughly nutritionally catered for and you will leave feeling refreshed, inspired and rejuvenated!

Whilst training at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London, Gemma found her passion for Yoga and all things movement based. When living in Sydney and after a few years in the Acting profession, Gemma found Sukha Mukha Yoga – and her wonderful teacher Idit Hefer Tamir – where she realized her dream of becoming a yoga teacher. Gemma has since studied with many other great Teachers, completing her advanced Yoga training with Jasmine Tarkeshi and Emily Stone from The Laughing Lotus in the US, teaches for Yoga on the Lane, The Life Centre, Psycle and recently became a Yoga ambassador for Sweaty Betty. Gemma loves to teach from the heart and encourages the exploration of all aspects of Yoga. Incorporating all her skills in her teaching, you’ll find Gemma’s classes creative, inspiring, with the odd story along the way. She teaches a range of alignment based Hatha Vinyasa, along with Yin, Mediation and Restorative yoga. Her classes offer a safe space for release and transformation no matter what stage you are in your journey with yoga.
