The course takes place at the newly opened, eco-friendly yoga centre, "The Garden of Joy" in Ibiza, which has a solid commitment to sustainable energy & preserving the environment in the most natural ways possible.
The centre has a lovely pool with stunning views of the bay. Meals are prepared using the finest available home-grown organic vegetables.
Brunch and dinner will be provided daily except on the two free days.
The accommodation is on a shared basis. Two people in a one bedroom, twin bedded apartment with catering facilities. These are 10 - 15 minutes walk away from the centre, near Cala Llonga Beach. There is a local supermarket nearby.
The Eco-friendly Yoga Centre "Garden of Joy" is situated in sweet aromatic pine forests five minutes from a pebble beach and ten minutes walk from a shallow sandy bay.
Our Centre is rustic and it overlooks "Magic Mountain" and the Sea. As there is very little light pollution our stars twinkle very brightly.
We commute by bus and by small ferry boats around the beautiful island of Ibiza.
You can also windsurf, hike and ride horses.
Water conservation and recycling techniques are of great importance to us: All of our water at the centre is provided from our well and rain water is collected and re-used for the garden surrounding the Yoga Space and the organic vegetable area irrigation systems. We are also studying local desalination techniques to enhance our systems.
We encourage our students to use public transport, we are blessed with buses from the nearby beach and small ferry boats with regular sailing's around the island. We are looking to invest in new alternative energy sources for the future. We use sea weed to fertilise our soil as an application of permaculture techniques that we are learning.
We very much want to support our local farmers and support their traditional lifestyle. The mountainous interior of the island is a quilt of dense pine forest, olive and almond groves. Farmers still use ancient terracing to cultivate their crops and irrigation techniques introduced by the Arabs over a thousand years ago. The Ibecenco people living in these rural areas are an extremely dignified people- their lives edging gently forwards in a time honoured fashion with so many treasured techniques to share.
We have been forging relationships with the local farmers who have been farming the land generation after generation and who still farm by hand. We hope to form an ecological community with our neighbours. We are committed to renovation and maintenance of our centre with recuperated materials sourced locally. Self sustainability is key: from the use of energy saving bulbs to our hand-made manufacture of candles using natural materials such as beeswax and essential oils.
We also provide local knowledge to help students find their way around on their two days off.
