luxury ibiza PURE SOULSHINE RETREATs
May, June, July & September 2019
Packages from €1,730 per person
The perfect place to breathe deep...
Our much-loved Pure Soulshine Retreats encapsulate the heart and soul of the Soulshine philosophy. Much more than just a ‘Yoga holiday’ these carefully curated retreats led by our experienced and passionate Soulshine Team provide the ultimate opportunity to pause from the crazy pace of modern day life, to rediscover and reconnect with your true nature and to let your soul shine (not to mention laugh lots, make new friends with like-minded people, snooze, sunbathe, explore, indulge in ridiculously yummy food and have an all round fantastically fun time!).
Your morning practice, lead by our very experienced Soulshine Lead Yoga teachers, will incorporate Meditation, Pranayama (breathing techniques) and dynamic Vinyasa 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. Throughout the week there will be a series of informative workshops to help support you on your way to living in optimal emotional and physical health.
Each day will also include life-inspiring and transformative workshops, including a healthy Cooking Session, Beginners Yoga Workshop, Nutrition Talk, Introduction to Ayurveda, Transformational Breath, Sound Meditation and Mindfulness Meditation to empower you to live the healthiest and most joyful life!
CAN SHUI - OUR LUXURY IBIZA HOME
The perfect place to unwind...
For such a magical space nestled into the stunning Ibiza countryside in a private development and with endless uninterrupted views out to sea, the translation of Can Shui, a ‘place of harmony’, could not be more appropriate.
Your retreat includes 6-nights in a stunning Luxury Ibizan villa with amazing onsite Soulshine Hosts and Holistic Wellness Team, luxuriously attentive Can Shui team plus a wonderfully small group to ensure maximum pampering and attention. Not to mention a totally jam-packed wellness programme.
We're also a 40 minute mountain trek to a wild and beautifully secluded beach. Pack your trainers as it's definitely worth a visit!
The perfect place for peaceful nights...
With daily house-keeping, sumptuous linen, organic bath products and a meticulous attention to luxurious detail, your Can Shui experience is guaranteed to provide high levels of comfort and pampering. We have a collection of wonderful rooms, offering solo and shared occupancy for you to pick from during your Soulshine stay, many offering stunning sea-views.
Travelling Solo? Never fear, the vast majority of our guests are solo travellers. You do not need to travel with a friend or partner to enjoy our shared rooms. We're so proud that we seem to attract just the loveliest people and have seen many a beautiful friendship flourish on retreat. Sharing will be with the same gender.
DELICIOUSLY HEALTHY CUISINE
The perfect place for healthy indulgence...
The food on the retreat is prepared with great experience and nutritional wisdom by much-loved Remko the Healthy Chef. Remko (a regular on Dutch TV) is absolutely passionate about creating ‘food as medicine’. The menus for the week have been developed with the guidance of our expert Soulshine Nutritionist and all the meals are truly a delicious delight, prepared with exceptional produce, the highest healing attention and more love and attention than you can possibly imagine. You definitely won’t be going hungry!
To provide a truly nurturing, nourishing and healing experience, food will be vegan and gluten-free. We believe that this really provides an opportunity for your body to heal and detox – especially in conjunction with all the other healthy practices that you’ll be enjoying. We are of course very happy to accommodate special dietary requirements.

Your 2019 Luxury Ibiza Pure Soulshine Team
Soulshine Manager & Yoga Teacher
Our much-loved Soulshine Manager Rich is back caring for our Soulshine guests on retreat and immersing them in gorgeous Yin Yoga and heart-felt Meditations. A yogi, a writer, a thinker, a t-total drinker; a seeker of calm, of peace. A lover of stillness and breath, of the ocean and nature. Rich loves seeing people wherever they are in their spiritual journey, embracing the dance. Inspiration for Rich comes when people find the moment they can tune into their super bright, true core awesomeness.
In addition to ensuring the smoothest running of your Soulshine Retreat and wrapping you up in lots of love, he’ll be leading the Beginners Yoga Clinic and providing deliciously soul-soothing Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra Meditation on our Luxury Ibiza Pure Soulshine Retreats.
Rich’s classes always have a philosophical approach delivered in an utterly accessible way. He has also been known to throw in a joke or two and he will often encourage you to lift the corners of your mouth and smile! With playlists that range from traditional chanting, and mediation music to Bob Marley and The Beatles, his classes come with dancing, laughter, and lots and lots of love. His Yin classes are slow, and deep and will encourage you to really allow yourself to be still and at peace with your body and practice. With a focus on finding space, in every sense of the word.
Founder, Yoga & Mindfulness Teacher & Transformational Life-Coach
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! She’ll be leading our Shine Bright Programme plus teaching and managing one of our Luxury Pure Soulshine Retreats in 2019.
Expect soulful, Mindful Flow Yoga, embellished with poetry, inviting reflection, encouraging compassion and weaving Coaching into morning practices. Deeply soul-soothing Yin and Restorative evening practices focus on balancing the nervous system and encouraging deep inner reflection as she shares Compassion Based Mindfulness techniques to cultivate greater inner harmony, acceptance and peace. Please note, Soulla will not be on all 2019 Soulshine Retreats.
Soulshine Vinyasa Flow Teacher
Back for a sixth Soulshine summer and much-loved by our many returning guests, our expert Yoga teacher Rachel will be leading the morning Vinyasa Flow Yoga sessions on our Luxury Ibiza Pure Soulshine Retreats.
Rachel's classes are fluid, flowing, challenging and with strong intention. As a trained Pilates teacher she provides clear, precise, safe and alignment focussed classes. Synchronising movement with breath, expect to be guided through a dance of asana (yoga pose) sequences to stretch and strengthen both the body and mind, releasing physical and mental tension held from any stress and worry.
Her aim is to teach each individual to find their own inner teacher, to avoid rising to the ego and forcing or straining beyond our current limits and to develop a compassionate approach to our needs, both on and off the mat. By cultivating acceptance, an understanding that change is constant and the ability to go with the flow, she hopes to help each student on their journey to Santosha - a place of joy, peace and contentment.
Soulshine Vinyasa Flow Teacher & Lead Massage Therapist
A scientist, a mystic, a dancer, a poet, an artist, a story teller a seeker and a believer - in all things magic. It has been Louise’s life mission to understand and heal all things body, mind and spirit. With a BSC in Physiotherapy, post graduate diploma in orthopeadic medicine and trained as a Massage therapist, Pilates and Yoga Instructor, Louise is a truly skilled, safe and inspiring teacher.
She found Yoga and Meditation on her own journey which has supported her in healing old wounds and a childhood eating disorder that reappeared in adulthood following a traumatic car accident. Her journey has taken her to her teachers in the sacred Himalayan mountains of India, to Buddhist teachers in America and other seekers of wisdom world wide. Louise now uses both western science, physiology and eastern practices and wisdom to give people a completely holistic and individual approach to self-optimization and healing.
In Louise’s yoga classes she empowers you with all the wisdom, knowledge and tools you need to explore your body and mind as a unique individual. Her words truly touch your soul and the wisdom you take away forever. Her understanding of the body allows her to give the most therapeutic hands on adjustments and posture adaptations for each individual and their needs.
Her presence is calming and soft, her class is strong. Louise has the most calming voice that takes you on the most blissful journey during savasana. Prepare to feel safe, nurtured and challenged, to break through to new levels of your being.
