Our home for the week will be this stunning century old villa, just a country road outside of San Miguel. Secluded amongst 34 acres of lush Mediterranean terrain, Villa Lyla comes with a beautiful swimming pool, overlooking the peaceful, vast olive-tree drenched farmland, a concrete yoga terrace and a magical backyard pine forest. The house itself consists of a main renovated, two-story Finca with five bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and there are also two separate private bungalow apartments with their own kicthen, lounge area and patio. Lyla Iljaz herself will also be our co-host for the week, sharing her local knowledge and warm, welcoming energy.
On the ground floor of the villa, we have three guest rooms, each with a private bathroom in the main house of the two-story villa. Each room is uniquely decorated with themes of different jetset destinations.
Two of these rooms have 2 x single beds, one pool facing and the other with an en-suite bathroom, and the third room has a king size bed and en-suite bathroom, also pool facing.
We also have two private bungalow apartments surrounding the ambiance of the bohemian villa with all the privacy you need. The Greecian inspired bungalow on the east side of the villa consists of a king bed, quaint living room with one bathroom, and kitchenette. It has its own entrance and terrace surrounded by luscious green palms and an outdoor shower. The Miami inspired bungalow has 3 single beds, quaint living room with one bathroom, kitchenette and a private terrace overlooking the olive trees.
Villa Lyla is set in quaint surroundings of San Miguel. Though relaxingly tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Ibiza Town, it's only 30mins drive away from the port and airport. Just a 10min country walk from the villa, you can find the local supermarket, traditional restaurants, local bars and anything else you might need. There are beautiful beaches nearby, including the iconic Benirras - known for it's local drummers who descend down to the beach to close out the sunset.
Activities & Features
YOGA & MEDITATION
Yoga is at the heart of all we will be sharing on this retreat as 'yoga' extends far beyond our physical Asana practices.
Mica will be guiding gentle paced, rejuvenating, soul soothing sunset asana practices, finding balance between our energising days and restorative evenings. We will also be incorporating breathwork, meditation, yoga inspired warm ups / cool downs and yoga philosophy in a variety of our other retreat activities.
RISING SOUL DANCE
Rising Soul Dance is a creative movement practice created by Laura which incorporates the healing power of dance and music to help you experience inner freedom. Connect to your body, your senses, each other and feel fully alive. Inspired by Laura's background as a dancer, ancient healing practices and music, you will learn the language of your body, the liberation of moving freely and reflective listening. Through a magical soundtrack that travels through a multitude of genres, we will connect and find new ways of moving and being.
Feel Flows is a unique and playful embodiment practice, created by Mica, that incorporates yoga, intuitive dance and mindful movement, accompanied by an eclectic and consciously curated soundtrack. In this practice, you are invited you to ease out of your mind, tap into your body and step out of your comfort zone as we release stagnant energy, embody different energies, characters and elements, harness the transformative powers of music and movement and
connect more deeply with ourselves and one another, whilst having a whole lot of fun too!
SUNRISE ECSTATIC DANCE
A soul-stirring awakening of the body, practiced barefoot to an eclectic, (mostly) electronic music journey of worldly rhythms DJ'd by Mica. We will greet the day dancing into the sunshine with this high-vibe movement and sound session, escaping self-consciousness and moving into a state of flow. Releasing, expressing, uplifting and connecting on the sacred dancefloor, communicating only through movement only (no talking), connecting wholeheartedly with our authentic selves in the simple yet so very powerful act of freeform dance.
QIGONG GUIDED MASSAGE
Qigong is ancient mind, body and spirit practice which helps you cultivate life force in your body (chi). In this session led by Laura, we will be working on the meridians (energy lines) in the body to ease blockages and bring ourselves back into balance. The session will start with gentle qigong massage involving tapping acupoints, brushing the limbs and finishing in a relaxing shaking meditation.
THE 7 CHAKRAS - BODY PAINTING WORKSHOP
In this light and playful beginner's guide with Mica, we will explore the defining characteristics of the seven main chakras - from what they are to how to tell when any may be blocked to activation from root to crown, using tools such as mantras, yoga poses, foods and more to bring our mental, physical and spiritual health into a more peaceful and balanced state. Our workshops extra fun and creative twist is that we will be also be body-painting ourselves and one another as we lean into better understanding each chakra.
HEALTHY SOUL NOURISHING FOOD
All daily meals shared on this retreat will be lovingly made by Mica and Lyla with a focus on health, nourishment and deliciousness. We will indulge in feel-good foods that are vibrant, nutritionally balanced and without refined sugars, while still being wholesomely indulgent. We believe it's vital to nourish our bodies with goodness and to eat mindfully, with intention.
SACRED CACAO CEREMONY
The beautiful, heart-healing medicine of Mama Cacao connects us with love and kindness, wisdom and truth, clarity and peace. In this ceremony we will drop from our heads into our heart space as we navigate with feeling over thought, dispersing blockages and rebalancing our physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. This ceremony will also include a short mindful storytelling of the mythical history and cultural significance of cacao.
CLOSING CEREMONY DAY & BENIRRAS SUNSET DRUM CIRCLE
We will close our retreat with a full day of Ceremonial activities.
Our day will begin with a joint movement practice with Laura and Mica. Once we are in our ceremonial whites, we will form our healing circle where we will hold, support and empower one another as we weave our stories together, going inwards to reflect, process and release and connect to our divine power. We will share in light breathwork, journaling, guided meditation and an intentions setting ritual. After some fun and food, we will have our with our cacao ceremony before heading to Benirras beach for one of it's famous sunset drumming circles.
