With the combination of yoga, awareness training and a vegan, gluten-free diet, you will find the space and time to recharge and regenerate. And all this in an enchanting place in the middle of the unspoiled nature of Mallorca. This retreat speaks to all your senses and brings body, mind and soul into harmony. Join our holistic program which is relaxing, regulating and yet activating. Be inspired to integrate more balance, joy and vitality into your life.
When was the last time you allowed yourself a conscious time-out and simply took care of your health and your needs? And with lots of fun, enjoyment and in inspiring company?
Everyday life often leaves us too little time to pause and feel what we need right now. Or we know what we need, but do not find the space and time to implement our resolutions. This is exactly why time-outs are so important for our well-being, our health and our mental balance. Because they give us the opportunity to feel our needs, consciously let go of old programs and recharge our batteries, so that we can return to our everyday lives strengthened and with a new focus and clear strategies.
In this retreat you have the unique opportunity to put yourself in the experienced hands of Michael Hamilton and Linda Maria Keller. We will be having the retreat location "La Serrania" exclusively to ourselves. This will gives us the opportunity to completely detach from everyday life, recharge our batteries and start fully charged into spring.
We will be starting our day in silence (until after brunch). If you want you can activate your system with some hot lemon or ginger water, some tea or even a jump into the cold water.
The morning practice includes an empowering asana class, some awareness practice and breath work. The practice is targeting the focus of this week: Renew and recharge, so that you will be able to "live a bright life" to the fullest.
After the morning practice a brunch awaits you. The hours between brunch and dinner are at your free disposal. You can lie by the pool and read, go for a walk or just be. This is exactly what this quiet and beautiful place invites you to do. You can also book an additional coaching session with us. These are on a first come first serve basis and will be at extra charge.
If you want to go on excursions, we recommend renting a car at the airport upon arrival.
After dinner there will be a relaxation session (e.g. sound healing, yin yoga, yoga nidra etc.) so that you can enter the night's rest deeply relaxed.

Enjoy delicious and nurturing food, which will be in this week all vegan and gluten-free. If you don't usually full such a diet, this week will also be slightly detoxifying for you. This is a great opportunity to replenish your mineral depots. If you are joining us for the fasting retreat the week before, then you can use this yoga week ideally to build up and stabilize a healthy diet.
What is a vegan nutrition?
Vegan nutrition means cooking and baking completely without animal products. Discover how diverse and delicious vegan cuisine can be. And maybe you'll be taking a few inspirations home with you.
What does gluten-free mean?
This week, we are avoiding gluten-containing grains such as wheat, spelt, rye and the like. Gluten-free carbohydrates include potatoes, rice, buckwheat, millet, gluten-free oats and corn, as well as all starchy vegetables and legumes such as carrots and beans.
Will I feel full if I eat this way?
Don't worry, a vegan and gluten-free diet does not mean that you get (too) little to eat. In addition, you always have access to our snack and tea bar, where you can find fine deliciouse snacks for the little hunger in between.

The retreat takes place in the foothills of the Tramuntana mountain range in the north of Mallorca. La Serrania is an enchanting place, ideal to unwind. Surrounded by oak forests and olive groves and built on limestone, the clean and serene architecture blends completely into the Mediterranean environment, creating a sense of harmony and wholeness surrounded by four and a half hectares of unspoiled nature.
The magnificent garden with its many hidden corners, the lounge area and the terrace invite you to relax and regenerate. Whether the pool can be used in March depends on how daring you are to jump into the cool water. But the real icing on the cake is the fully equipped yoga room with a beautiful garden view. A real luxury for our practice.
All rooms are bright, friendly and tastefully decorated. They are characterized by simple and clean lines. Each room has its own bathroom and a private terrace or balcony.
For healthy and deep sleep, there is no wifi in the bedrooms. Local materials and craftsmen were used in the construction and furnishing of La Serranía. The bedding and towels are 100% linen and cotton, and only biodegradable cleaning and laundry products are used.
There are a limited number of single and double rooms. Book as soon as possible to secure your favorite choice!
