    This retreat is for YOU...

    ... Feel free to do as you please! Don’t feel pressured to participate in everything if you don’t want to.

    The retreat has been designed so that you may attend all Yoga classes as well as fitness classes and other outdoor activities. If you’d rather do your own thing or just chill out by the pool then that’s totally YOUR CHOICE!

    We’ve designed the retreat so you will have some free time throughout (as we know how stressful it can feel if a retreat is too jam-packed). Especially when you’re like us and get total FOMO or you also desperately need time out to destress + relax! The lush outdoor pool or local nature hikes are there for you to enjoy if you wish or maybe you’d rather chill with a book in your luxurious room.

    Wellness Gypsy's Client Feedback...

    "This was a lovely retreat, beautiful setting, lovely people, peaceful.
    Coming on this retreat, I wanted to be open-minded and present and open-hearted. I did have an A-HA moment confirming what is in my heart at this time and all I'm doing is going in the direction I want it to."

    - Anna Cassidy

    "I cannot even begin to describe how immensely grateful and lucky I am to have met Gillian and attend her yoga classes in Barcelona. I had never regularly practiced yoga and then after one of Gills sunset roof top classes I never stopped, and I practiced three times a week with her for four months. I kept coming back because I loved having Gillian as my teacher, she is kind, warm, approachable, open and knowledgeable which all reflects in her teaching.
    This wonderful woman teaches a mindful and energizing flow with clear instructions for all levels, making anyone feel comfortable, calm and confident through out the whole practice. I leave every class feeling lighter and inspired and with a huge smile on my face! Thank you so much Gillian for all your time, patience and love that you share 🙂 I cant wait till I'm back in Barcelona!"

    - Lauren Rose Dinnage

    "The Retreat was wonderful! I loved the women and the camaraderie. I loved how quickly I was able to unwind & destress from everyday life. As a mum it was such a treat and just a weekend so doable with kids"

    - Lucy Griffiths

    "I don’t think Gill believed me on the phone when I said I couldn’t do yoga and it made me physically ill. However, after one lesson she saw just this and put together some very easy poses with lots of tools to help me. In one week, the change was amazing. This has been life changing for me and I am now incorporating yoga into my life. I have never felt so strong in my adult life.
    Gill, has a gentle style which I loved and is a wonderful listener. The week was so beneficial to me I asked her to come back 2 weeks later and I will use Gill whenever I am in Europe. Gill has helped me believe I can incorporate yoga in my life and 3 months later I am still adhering to many of the tips and guidelines and supplements she started me on. As well as doing yoga weekly."

    - Vanessa Speer

    The food was amazing. I can feel a difference in my energy levels and general wellbeing. I was surprised at how relaxed the yoga made me feel as well as feeling like I had a workout! I felt energised but slept well."

    - Sarah Palmer

    In this retreat, I found I got a great emotional release from how I felt about myself & a lot more clarity on how I wanted my life to be. I also got a great workout from the yoga sessions and a good detox!"
