YOGA RETREAT BY GALA ORTIN
IBIZA | 1 JULY – 5 JULY 2020
I’m Gala, I’m 31 years old. Yoga is a physical and mental discipline for me. I started practicing yoga two years ago to find that space of personal well-being, mind control and physical exercise, that time for myself and for my conscious thoughts. Yoga has given me peace of mind and mental clarity, and at the same time, on a physical level, strength and flexibility. Yoga is for everyone so I invite you to enter with me on this fascinating journey towards connection with yourself and the exercise of your body. Namaste!

U-Retreat has the great pleasure to announce a very special 5 days retreat in cooperation with Gala Ortin.
- Duration: 5 days / 4 nights
- Location : Ibiza – Spain
- Method : Vinyasa Flow with Gala
- Contents: Yoga sessions, activities, clean nutrition and tips about healthy relaxed life.
It’s a Ibiza – the Spanish island in the Mediterranean Sea off the Eastern coast of Spain. It is 150 kilometers from the city of Valencia. It is the third largest of the Balearic islands, an autonomous community of Spain. The population of Ibiza is approx. 144,000 inhabitants. The island is widely known for its nightlife, however, it is also a very special spiritual centre that attracts many people to the island as well. Ibiza enjoys very mild climate with a lot of sunshine allowing going to the beach almost all the year round.
My practice is based on the Vinyasa Flow: the vinyasa style (sequences that coordinate movement with breathing) mixed with the music that accompanies the sequence and the story I want to tell through it. I also add Core exercises (center activation) and breathing techniques both at the beginning and at the end.
My classes are each different, through the sequence we tell a story (breaking down barriers, fears, facing situations, letting go, loving you, etc.) getting the mind free through the body.
The classes are open to all levels and will include variations to let anyone stay at pace with the flow.
Our chefs believe in the power of food as a medium to transport you to magical places. Our menus are carefully designed to make your experience in the retreat unique, without forgetting to nurture your health and the health of our planet. Our food is innovative, plant based, nutritious, gluten free and organic as possible. Within these, we have created incredibly delicious dishes to nurture your body and soul while you are staying with us.
We work with healthy, seasonal ingredients and believe in creativity for you to embark on a visual experience. We will help you with transitioning into a plant based diet, inspiring you with our food. We will also teach you the basics of plant based meal preparation, including notes on nutrition and food combination. You will learn how to create wonderful dishes to support you on your own personal journey.
