Dive Deep Ibiza Soulshine Retreats with Soulla
May, June, September & October 2017
Dive Deep Soulshine Retreats with Soulla provide the opportunity to immerse yourself fully in deliciously soul-soothing Yoga and Meditation practices. We’ve created a flowing schedule with greater focus upon time on your mat and leaving more time to indulge in relaxation by the pool or with our wonderful Soulshine Wellness Experts, on hand to provide maximum pampering and healing treatments. The intention of the Dive Deep Soulshine Retreat led by Founder Soulla is to provide transformative and life-evolving practices to encourage deeply healthy, wholesome and happy living for body, mind & spirit!
Expect a daily Meditation session, two hours of Flow Yoga each morning and 90 minutes of deeply relaxing Yoga each evening incorporating Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, workshops, Yoga Nidra and Meditation. Leaving plenty of time for sunbathing, enjoying the incredible cuisine, body-soothing pampering treatments and all within the stunning and gorgeously luxurious surroundings of Can Shui.
The Yoga (suitable for all levels)
Your morning practice to greet the day will incorporate Meditation, Pranayama (breathing techniques) and a more dynamic Flow Yoga to awaken the body, mind and spirit. The evening practice will focus on incorporating healing Yin and Restorative poses and sessions of deeply relaxing Yoga Nidra guided meditation. Soulla will also incorporate workshops into the evening sessions with different focus for example, practices to calm your nerves and enhance your sleep.
Classes take place in the cool shade of a forest or within the stunning living space of our villa if raining – both offering magical views out to sea – it is truly a special space to practice. And remember, your retreat will be small, with numbers limited so that Soulla can give each and every one of you plenty of personal attention and help to develop your practice on an individual level – whatever your goals and needs may be.
Soulla Demetriou - Your Yoga Teacher
Yogini, dream-chaser, explorer, meditator, eternal student, ocean-lover and founder of Soulshine Retreats, Soulla’s goal is to inspire people to embrace their full potential and find the happiness and freedom that exists within us all - to shine bright!
Find out more about Soulla
Since discovering yoga on a South American adventure, Soulla has been fascinated by the powerful physiological, psychological and spiritual effects a Yoga and Meditation practice can offer. It was the incredible impact that these practices had on her own life that lead her to give up a successful career in marketing and surrender fully to a beautiful journey of learning and self-discovery. This journey has taken her around the world on many a wild adventure, during which time she has clocked up over 800-hours in Yoga Teacher Trainings encompassing Mindfulness, Yin Yoga, Anusara Yoga, Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow, Restorative Yoga and Yoga for Anxiety, Depression and Mood Management.
As someone who suffered from Anxiety in her twenties and went through the very bumpy terrain of a major life overhaul in her early-thirties, Soulla has journeyed deeply, and often through the 'shadow side' to explore, experience and discover practices that support us in our pursuit of happiness. It was through her own journey, the highs and the lows, that the desire for Soulshine Retreats and all that it encompasses was born. She is an ardent believer in cultivating a compassionate approach for taking our happiness and our destiny into our own hands in order to live life fully and joyfully and believes that we all hold the innate potential for healing.
Soulla holds a deep desire to share the skills that she has learnt on her journey in an utterly digestible way to hopefully help others in their pursuit of peace, fulfilment, joy and happiness. She hopes to provide the skills through her work and that of her dedicated and passionate Soulshine Team to bring positive transformation in the world so that each and every one of us can embrace our full potential and find the happiness and freedom that exists within us all. Quite simply, to shine bright!
What to expect
With over 800-hours of training, Soulla offers both dynamic and flowing Yang yoga and healing and restorative Yin yoga. Her classes fuse breathwork, meditation, dancing, poetry, intention setting, music, and lots of giggles. Her dynamic Yang flow classes bring together sequences of postures in a powerful practice, developing strength, flexibility and awareness, as well as detoxifying the system. Yin and Restorative classes focus on providing a pause in life to create a deeply healing and relaxing space.
