My Pick of the 5 Best Yoga Retreats in Ibiza for 2022
One of Spain’s stunning Balearic islands, Ibiza is world renowned for its amazing nightlife but there’s also a less well known, quieter, magical, spiritual, hippie side and some fantastic yoga retreats in Ibiza. Read my post on Exploring the spiritual, hippie side to Ibiza. A side that’s filled with quaint villages, colourful markets, peaceful beaches, pine-clad hills and yoga retreats. When in Ibiza (also known locally as Eivissa) you must also visit the mysterious, monolithic limestone rock formation of Es Vedra. It is said to be the third most magnetic point in the world and has long been referred to as the source of Ibiza’s inexplicable energy.
While the summer months are best for partying, Ibiza’s warm and mild year round climate makes it a great place to head to for a yoga retreat or relaxing break pretty much any time of the year. For Europe, Spain is the country with the best and largest choice of yoga retreats and Ibiza is no exception. The yoga world is booming here and there are so many great yoga retreats in Ibiza to choose from.
It can hard to decide which one is best and it’s more important than ever to do your research and get reviews from people who’ve been there before. That’s where www.bookyogaretreats.com comes in handy as you can read reviews and get all the information you need on all the yoga retreats in Ibiza.

Covid Update: Be aware that the situation in Europe could change at any time so double check current situation, entry requirements and re-entry requirements for your home country when you return. I find this regularly updated article by Wanderlust Magazine about which countries are open for tourism really useful.
It’s also more important than ever to have good travel insurance that covers coronavirus – mine is with SafteyWing. All these yoga retreats have also implemented enhanced hygiene and distancing measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus. (Note that the photos in the article were taken before Covid-19)
To help you pick your perfect rejuvenating retreat holiday in the sunshine are my recommendations for the best yoga retreats in Ibiza.
Here is my pick of the 5 Best Yoga Retreats in Ibiza
Relax, unwind and practice yoga in a small village on the hippie northeast side of Ibiza. The Yoga Weeks takes place in a typical Ibiza Finca just a few minutes’ away from the stunning, nudist friendly beach of Aguas Blancas. The finca is a magical place to meet like minded people and practice yoga while being surrounded by soothing nature and eating delicious healthy cuisine cooked by a local chef.
You’ll enjoy two vinyasa yoga classes every day while at this seven day Ibiza yoga retreat, as well as sunset relaxation and meditation. In between classes, you can go to the beach, take a trip to Ibiza Town, explore the nearby colourful hippie markets, relax by the pool or admire the views from the rooftop terrace. You will also have the choice of different accommodation types to suit all budgets and a delicious daily vegetarian brunch and light buffet supper are included. Massages and other alternative therapies are also available and the evening yoga theory talks take your practice and understanding of yoga to the next level.
