Yoga Retreat in Majorca

 

Spending a relaxing yoga holiday in Mallorca?

A few years ago yoga was labeled as a discipline for hippies or people who spent too much time in Goa. The images you saw were mostly marked by crazy distortions and showed alternative and bearded people.

As of today, a lot has changed. According to Yoga Survey and Yoga Alliance, the number of people practicing yoga in the United States has almost doubled from 20 to approximately 37 million since 2016.

A development that can also be observed in Europe. The spread of yoga has also led to the opening of a series of retreats in Mallorca, which offer different types of vacation in combination with yoga and want to give their guests deep relaxation.

Some time ago we met Brenda and Roland from Osa Major.

The two of them immediately welcomed us warm and positively and were able to give us a lot of tips and information about yoga from the same moment.

Osa Major, named after the constellation Great Bear, is located in Sant Joan, just 30 minutes from the island's capital city, Palma.

With a lot of love and detail, Roland and Brenda gradually renovated their finca, which they bought as a ruin in 2006.

At the top of the hill they built a beautiful yoga shala overlooking the valley. Teachers come from all over the world so that many beautiful yoga weeks can be organized.

Various terraces, the large pool, an own vegetable garden and completely self-sufficient energy make this retreat an absolute experience for mind and soul.


Of course there are many other yoga retreats on Mallorca but we would like to recommend Osa Major to you.
