SOL to SOUL
with Ashley Rideaux
June 23-30, 2022
Described by Lonely Planet as a “classic Mediterranean postcard”, Mallorca is the perfect sunny setting to start your summer. We will spend seven nights in our own finca, a historic farmhouse estate that has been carefully restored for luxury accommodations. With views of olive groves and almond plantations, our finca offers a peaceful getaway tucked away in soulful rolling hills.
Each day begins with yoga in our private shala, followed by fresh Mediterranean brunch cooked by our personal chef. Our days are designed with a balance of structure and time set aside to honor your personal retreat. Excursions include visits to beaches, a guided tour of Palma, a mindfulness hike, and a visit to a biodynamic winery. In your free time take a walk in the forest, luxuriate in Nature’s glory, swim in the pool, boat in the glimmering sea, get a massage, or design an excursion of your own with help from our private local guide. Each night, exquisite dinner will be prepared by our personal chef.
Our retreat centers around soul and sol, both of which are abundant in Mallorca. Journey to the heart of Mediterranean Spain for an island experience rich with history and culture and connect with self and others on this week-long retreat.
