Welcome curious soul seeker, congratulations for following the breadcrumbs to the Practical Magic Retreat taking place on the magical island of Ibiza over the week of 10-17 October 2020.
The fact you’re here means you’ve felt the pull, you’ve answered the call of the disco ball, and you’re ready to take a beautiful leap into a time and space crafted just for you and your divine self.
You’re craving time just for you.
You are desperate to lift your head out of the constant doing and endless to-do list, and simply want to find some space to take a breather and be more you, not what everyone needs of you.
You’ve spent so much time focusing and caring for everyone and everything else other than yourself and the edges are not only fraying, they’re off to find a new outfit to be woven into.
You’ve been spending much too long living in your head now, so to connect into your heart and your body would feel like a holiday itself. Plus, the anxiety of the wobbling spinning plates is getting too much, and one more plate going up is going to bring the whole lot crashing down, and you with it.
You want to live with purpose and feel fulfilled but right now you’re struggling to get through the daily grind, let alone thinking about the work it takes to live a full life and make a difference in the world.
The idea of having a week of blue skies, warmth on your skin, delicious food, long lazy afternoons, daily swims, along with some soul-enriching self reflection and high vibing, disco ball magic is totally rocking your gorgeous boat right now.
Darling, we’ve got you
The Practical Magic Retreat in Ibiza takes place at a time of year when the turn of season brings us to attention with clarity and focus on what we’ve been creating and building on throughout the year. It’s a time to restore, to reflect and harvest and to bring all parts of ourselves home before the deep rest of the winter months—it’s a time to gather in with deep reverence and wisdom, whilst sewing new seeds for what’s to come.
And what a place to do it—Ibiza, the ‘Magic Isle’—the third most magnetic place on earth after the north and south pole. And more specifically, the north of the island where the scent of the pine forests fill your senses and the mountains roll majestically down to the white sands and sapphire blue seas of the beaches. Nestled between is a haven of spiritual connection and comfort where we shall gather, play and rest.
The Practical Magic Retreat in Ibiza is a life-enriching week of re-connection, reflection and re-integration designed to activate your magic in its fullest sense. It’s a week dedicated to donning that much-need oxygen mask so you can relax and enjoy some time out from your busy life. It’s the ultimate re-set button so you can re-imagine your vitality and creativity.
Yes, yes, yes, I’m in!
Re-connect and Re-energise
Through Practical Magic – a blended melting pot of creativity and well-being self-care mastery— you will enjoy a mixtape worthy variety of good stuff, including soul-enriching daily meditation, deep healing relaxation, massage, yoga, nature bathing, divine candlelight rituals and soulfully crafted ceremony along with the re-connection to your most empowered feminine wisdom and your wise, wild and free self with Qoya.
The week is created to take you on a journey of discovery, connecting to your body, your inner wisdom and your inspiration. Throughout our time together you will be nourished and cared for in equal measure by beautiful surroundings, restorative self-care rituals and carefully crafted food. Enjoy meaningful conversation with the collective inspiration of other women who offer support, trust and magical connections when we gather together.
This is an experience like no other.
This is not a yoga retreat, it’s more than that, this is an invitation to re-engage with your life and connect to the essence of you are; head, heart, body and connection to it all — the magic within you and around you.
Expect to reconnect to your wild, uninhibited self, full of creative expression with a disco ball and sequins vibe whilst experiencing relaxation, space, nature, peace and tranquillity in equal measure.
Where the ocean greets your soul and the mountains finds home in your heart
where you will relax and restore
Bohemian charm, just steps from some of Ibiza’s best kept secret beaches, Xuclar Beach House hides amongst the pine trees with views over the sea and the mountains in the tranquility of the north of the Island.
You will enjoy the chance to slow down throughout the week by relaxing in one of the day beds nestled within the luscious gardens, take a gentle swim in the pool as you gaze out across the Balearic Sea.
With one stunning yoga deck suspended in nature, and an indoor shala for intimacy and deep reverence, we will explore both within nature, and the nature within.

HOW WE WILL SPEND OUR TIME
You may either be a ‘rock up and surrender’ kind of woman, or you may wish to know what to expect from the Practical Magic Retreat, what’s set out below will give you a feel and a flavour for the experience that awaits you from this 7 day magical retreat.
On the afternoon of Saturday 10 October you will arrive at Xuclar Beach House (from 3pm onwards) to get yourself settled into your room and stunning surroundings of our home for the week. We will gather for our first meal together and then gather together in circle for a candlelit opening circle on the first evening.
As you wake each day you will have the option to join me in either in one of the shalas or out in nature to be held and grounded for a meditation and breath work session, or you may desire an early morning dip in the pool. Breakfast will be a freshly prepared ‘super bowl’ breakfast with a selection of fresh fruits, tea and coffee.
If you are joining for Qoya teacher training we will spend an hour together before everyone re-groups for morning intention setting with a journal prompt to invite you to connect in with the theme of each day, and your reflections of your journey in life, each day is a part of the week’s journey to help you drop from your head to your heart.
Mid morning we will gather back together to remember your wise, wild & free with a Qoya session, after which you will be more than ready for a delicious vegan or vegetarian lunch. The afternoon is yours to do whatever you wish to do; be that sleep, read, swim, spend time in nature, write, journal, get creative explore the surroundings, enjoy a massage, head to the beach (which is just a 3 minute walk away) — whatever your heart desires.
We join back together for a delicious dinner, and then into the evening gather once more in circle for nourishing self rituals, storytelling and ceremony designed to walk you on your path through the journey of magic you will be guided on throughout the week.
The week is carefully curated to ensure both spaciousness and integration are interwoven with deep work and reflection. We will honour the essence of the feminine throughout the week with plenty of space and flow.

Are you ready to dive in?
To say it was life changing sounds like a cliché but really it was. Meeting people you'd wish you'd known all your life, but then kind of feeling like you have. Making connections in body, mind and spirit. Having everything you've been working on come together and understanding yourself a bit better. It was such an incredible beautiful safe space was created and held. I danced, laughed, cried, had set backs and breakthroughs. I learnt I can heal in body and mind and was supported by the most amazing women in doing this. I left understanding more about myself than I knew there was to learn.
