Last week, Can Verru played host to a brand new retreat – Retreat Me!
The brainchild of the Nikki Porteus from We Are Beautiful Ibiza and Natalie Gillot from Love Pilates Ibiza, having seen so many retreats at Can Verru in the past, now seemed like the perfect time to try one of their own.
“We have the perfect space at Can Verru Ibiza! We are lucky enough to know some of the most incredible inspiring teachers and therapists on the island. Add to that friends begging us to create something to give them a break away from the craziness of kids, work and life – it was a no brainer!”
Natalie and Nikki say the objective of the retreat was to bring together a group of busy women, to provide well deserved time away from the day-to-day routine. To relax, nourish their bodies with plant-based delicious food, exercise, be pampered and enjoy some down time. Also they really wanted them to take home some new knowledge around living a healthier lifestyle.
When asked why Can Verru makes the perfect venue for a retreat, Nat and Nikki said “Can Verru Ibiza has become a well known retreat location over the past years amongst fitness trainers and Yoga teachers. It is set in a tranquil location near some of the most beautiful beaches and countryside in Ibiza. There are plenty of hiking routes, more than enough open space for workouts, and it comes complete with its own beautiful Yoga Shala in the forest. It is also fully equipped with fitness equipment and Yoga kit. It comfortably sleeps 12 people and more can be accommodated very near by.”
And it seems that their wealth of experience made the retreat run especially smoothly. All the hard work was done in the lead up and as they both have different strengths, they thought it actually was was a breeze! They were so happy and they worked perfectly together!
So what did they learn from hosting their first retreat?
