A kundalini yoga and meditation retreat at Soul Adventures in Ibiza is a must for anyone looking for profound re-connection to themselves, a deep dive into the transformative powers of Kundalini Yoga and a spiritual overhaul.

At the helm is Trish Whelan, former music exec turned Kundalini Yoga and Meditation Teacher, Shamanic Practitioner, Reiki Master Teacher and Sound Healing Master. Trish moved to the beautiful white isle of Ibiza eight years ago and has been facilitating healing retreats both there and in Goa ever since.

I had the joy of attending the four day ‘Soul Medicine’ retreat, which combines daily Kundalini yoga, workshops, sharing, incredible food (more on that later), sound healing and more.

The retreats take place in the more tranquil north of the island, at a stunning authentic Ibizan villa nestled up in the hills surrounded by forest and only five minutes’ walk to the Cala Xuclar beach (also home to arguably Ibiza’s best restaurant, Chiringuito Cala Xuclar).

As a retreat guest, you could not be more supported as you are guided through the four days with love and great care. Trish is incredibly knowledgeable yet also down to earth, warm and relatable. The yoga itself (and the deeply restorative gong baths that follow each practice) takes place on a specially created wooden deck overlooking the beach. It is a real joy being able to practise outside, soaking up the unique energy of Ibiza.

The food was all loving prepared by nutritional health specialist Mel Atkinson of Watermelon Well, with every plant-based meal as vibrant as the last. Mel is a kundalini yoga teacher, a naturopath and a nutritionist and the food offering is all designed to support the healing and transformational experience.

You will have plenty of time to relax, whether that’s bathing in the infinity pool, or booking a Reiki treatment or massage. Often on yoga and meditation retreats you are expected to stick to a tight schedules but at Soul Adventures there is the feeling of freedom balanced with consciously structured days.

I left feeling renewed, energised, vibrant and strong, having soaked up so much wisdom and high vibes from both Trish and the other participants, as well as being supported by the stunning nature of Ibiza.

The retreats are kept small with a maximum of 6 people at a time to really facilitate deep healing.

A special mention goes to Trish’s lovely little dog Snoop, who is also quite the healer!

The next retreat is The Wild Aquarian Woman taking place November 1st - 4th - a four day Kundalini yoga and meditation retreat for women who are stepping into their FULL POWER! Find out more and book HERE.

More on Kundalini Yoga:

Kundalini Yoga, known as "‘The Yoga of Awareness’ is an ancient art and science dealing with the transformation and expansion of consciousness, the awakening and raising of kundalini energy (the energy of creation which lays dormant at the base of the spine).

Kundalni Yoga is comprised of harnessing specific breathing exercises, postures, mantras and more and was made popular in the west by Yogi Bhajan. Read more here.
