This retreat is for YOU…

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.

I’ve designed the retreat so that you may attend morning Vinyasa Flow Yoga classes and evening Restorative classes, both integrating essential oils plus 3 workshops if you wish to attend. You will have the option to attend the guided mindfulness meditation classes as well in both the morning and evening with the lovely Kasia, but if you’d rather do your own thing or just chillax then that’s totally YOUR CHOICE!

I’ve designed the retreat so you will have some free time throughout (as I know how stressful it can feel if a retreat is too jam-packed), especially when you’re like me 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 room or totally spoil yourself and book in for a luxurious massage with Carrie of Heaven Massage.

“I really liked the mindfulness tricks that I will actually try from now on, the food, the place, the peaceful environment, your care for all of us and for the details, the essential oils, etc””

The Team!

Hi, I’m Gill!

Founder of Wellness Gypsy Retreats, I love experimenting with all types of yoga, not taking life so seriously, being outdoors, meeting new people, being active, travel and anything related to health + wellness. I believe in living a balanced life where possible and not limiting ourselves but always pushing our limits towards discovering our true potential. And I also love wine. . . it’s all about the balance 😉

I’m super excited to now offer retreats as a part of Wellness Gypsy! I’ve always loved going on retreats myself and now love organizing them! They’re the best solo-traveler holidays and I never feel better after a holiday as after a retreat. I’ve done all kinds of retreats from intense Detox, Yoga/Surf to just Yoga Workshop retreats all over the world.

Yoga has been a part of my life for 16 years and I’ve practiced many styles. I am a qualified 200-hr Hatha Yoga teacher. I did my yoga teacher training in Bali, my spiritual place that I love to go back to regularly.

My ‘other life’ working on and managing the interior of Superyachts for many years taught me the art of high class hospitality and event planning, serving the wealthiest people in the world with 6* service, whilst traveling the world. I can’t wait to share this with you so you can experience some of this for yourself.

As well as a Yoga Instructor, I’m a qualified Naturopath + Western Herbalist and a Certified Holistic Health Coach. I work as a Health + Lifestyle Coach for clients worldwide and I’ve taught Hatha Vinyasa Flow + Restorative Yoga in Barcelona at Marina One Ocean Port Vell, most recently, the new loft-style studio Wellco, as well as on Superyachts for owners & guests.

To learn more about me, you can read the About section of my website.


We’re so lucky to have the lovely Kasia, a Mindfulness Based Awareness Coach and Meditation & Mindfulness Instructor, and Lucy a fantastic Healthy Food Chef back for this retreat to spoil us with their incredible talents + beautiful souls. I LOVE having these amazing ladies collaborate on my Retreats!

Hi, I’m Kasia!

Starting my professional dancing and acting career at the age of 14, I worked on stage and in front of the camera for over a decade. Since 2006 I worked as a successful TV producer and felt privileged to work all over the world. Seeking to balance the stresses and strains of this lifestyle – from castings and shoots to demanding clients and schedules – I started exploring yoga & meditation.

I’ve always been inspired by the mind-body connection and the power we have over our own lives. I founded Mindful Workshop with a vision to create a happier and healthier society. I believe deeply in the powerful effects this practice can have on both our general physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing. I’m most fascinated by neuroplasticity of the brain and support my work with the findings of modern neuroscience.

My heart lies somewhere between Warsaw, London & Barcelona.

Looking forward to welcoming you to the retreat and meeting you!

Hi, I’m Lucy!

I am a Barcelona based healthy chef and my passion for healthier food came after 6 years striving to find a balance in the notoriously strenuous restaurant industry. Weight gain, bad habits and exhaustion motivated me to make a change. I returned to London from Australia and took leading chef roles for healthy companies; The Pure Package, The Detox Kitchen and Deliciously Ella’s Delis.

I love to make people happy with wonderful food. Creating memories and friendships through the joy of eating and thriving in the process.
Always passionately dedicated to cooking beautiful and tasty food, that is naturally healthy. I try to use organic produce where possible and support local suppliers.

I can’t wait to nourish your body + soul with delicious flavours + wholefoods!

What Our Past Guests Had to Say…


“This was a lovely retreat, beautiful setting, lovely people, peaceful.
Coming on this retreat, I wanted to be open-minded and presetn 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



“The location and scenery was gorgeous very serene and zen. The yoga and wellness retreat was very restorative and rejuvenating.
What I liked most about the retreat was that it was so thoughtfully created with a lot of details (welcoming gift, retreat handout…). It was very well rounded: a nice introduction to health, wellness, mindfulness, de-stressing and healthy eating. I love you 3 ladies (you – Gill, Kasia and Lucy), your expertise combined, and in this serene and beautiful setting made this experience very special.
I felt grateful and abundant to be able to come to this retreat in this beautiful setting. In this moment I knew I was in the right place, this was exactly what I needed.
Being on this retreat showed me what is possible for me if I believe in myself. I loved all your encouraging quotes you and Kasia said. They really resonated with me and my soul.
Looking forward to going on one of your retreats again!”

– Jacqueline Jurisch



“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



“The Retreat has left me feeling relaxed and energised plus committed to changing some habits & living more mindfully. I had a brilliant time & enjoyed meeting lots of other women.
It gave me a new & revised focus on what I need to do to feel more aligned & relaxed”

– Ruth Kudzi



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!”

– Robyn Crick
