Mallorca has a sunny personality thanks to its beautiful beaches and turquoise waters, gorgeous countryside to tasty Mediterranean cuisine, sunny climate to fascinating culture. The truth is, with Mallorca there is something for everyone!

We’re offering a unique opportunity to combine nature, hiking and yoga with the possibility to explore the city life and rich culture of Mallorca’s capital, Palma.

For those who prefer sunbathing or a dip in the blue, it only takes 10-15 minutes by bus from the hotel to go to the nearest beach.

 

 

Mallorca is also a paradise for hikers and there are many well maintained hiking paths for all abilities. The western part of Mallorca is very hilly and the highest mountains are over 1400 m high. It is a fantastic setting for hiking with a fabulous view of Mallorca and the other islands fo the Balearic islands. Our knowledgeable and experienced guide will lead the hikes.

We will start up every day with and outdoor yoga session in the magical Castell de Bellver park, only a 10 minute walk from the hotel. This beautiful park also offers a wonderful view over Palma bay.

Meet your leaders

Maria Söderholm 

Maria is a travel producer and guide. She lives in California with the world as her working area. She has a passion for nature, health and to inspire people to the outdoors. The destinations of her retreats are therefore carefully selected.

Together with her co-worker, Lotta Dahl, she has designed this yoga and hiking retreat on the beautiful island, Mallorca. The itinerary is based on both yoga and hiking as a combination. In collaboration with the local adventure guide, Jose, they have selected three different hiking trails with varying landscapes and content.

 

Sara Kristensen – your yoga teacher

Sara has been teaching yoga since 2013. She has trainings from Global Yoga (200hrs) and Yoga Alience Jeanne Heinemann (500hrs). Together with a friend she founded Yogalito yoga studio in a small town called Båstad in Sweden 2014. Her style of yoga is mainly vinyasa, a free playful version which is full of fun and love. The vinyasa its a step by step physical yoga that includes creativity and rhythm. She’s also teaching restorative yoga and yin yoga. Nowadays Sara is teaching yoga at Earthyoga in Palma and at Yogalito when she is in Sweden. She is also hosting various retreats.

Sara believes that yoga is a deeply personal practice. As with any meaningful relationship, it shifts, evolves and deepens with time. Yoga provides an opportunity to reconnect within and and through the poses and breathing develop a stronger body and a calmer mind. Flowing breath to movement, she invites you to listen to your body and to have patience and acceptance for where you find yourself.

Four years ago she moved to Palma de Mallorca with her family. They all love the island life and she is passionate about sharing both the best of the island and her love for yoga.

 

We will shortly introduce you to our hiking guide Jose. A more detailed description of the three hiking trails will also be presented shortly.
