I am so peaceful, calm and happy!

I ve never experienced such a feeling after a vacation, I feel like I have a special aura around me, I am so peaceful, calm and happy! And this is since day 1! I was soooo worried that after hitting “normal life” again the magic of the Mountain Ibiza…

Feel like you are in Paradise!

Laura and Wouter are wonderful hosts. Beautiful, calm, very open and friendly, if there is anything you would like to ask for you can do it and they try to make it possible. They are both very great yoga teachers and teach you so much more than that! The place is very beautiful in the raw nature. You are really able to feel one with nature and find yourself. The yogalessons on the yogaplatform between the trees in the mild wind makes you feel being softly touched and the lessons itself are really great, not too difficult but very different every time. Also the meditation and spiritual lectures are wonderful soft and not over the top. I felt very safe and very happy. We did nature walks, silent day, rituals everyone felt comfortable with. The food was amazing. Just vegetarian. The houses are very simple, if you dont need the luxury of a private bath, (although there are some rooms with a bathroom), an aircondition, always electricity then you feel like you are in a Paradise. Thats how i felt! I can only highly recommend “The mountain Ibiza

Such a warm, happy and spiritual overwhelming week

The week at Mountain ibiza was the best i could do for myself! I never expected such a warm, happy and spiritual overwhelming week to come to when I decided to go to the retreat this summer.”

It felt safe to life my life…

“BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN WHEN YOU PROVE TO YOURSELF JUST HOW STRONG YOU ARE” So thank you beautiful Laura & Wouter for helping me, as I arrived a bit as a stranger feeling a bit uncertain about my situation. In the mountains it felt safe to life my life… AHO

Very special, beautiful, transforming journey…

Feeling shining and very liberated after Laura’s Women retreat on Ibiza.  I went to Ibiza for one whole week. ALONE. Best decision this year! 

For the first time in my life i joined a retreat; the Ibiza Women retreat (Back to the root of the feminine) at The Mountain Ibiza. And it was AMAZING. I slept at the best spot on the island; A back to basic finca (eco toilet, outside shower, sunpower and beautiful nature) on the top of a hill. NO internet, NO service, NO distraction. Just what i needed. And the food … oh Abi i miss your great food … It was a quit an intense week. It felt very very LIBERATING to laugh, cry, dance, meditate and LIVE to the fullest!  I can recommend it very very much! At new years Laura is organising a yoga retreat (mixed) … If right now you think: OH YES! I NEED THIS!!! go to her website for more information. Oh, and in February she is also organising a women retreat in BALI … GO if your ituition says a big YES right now, you won’t regret it! Laura takes you on a very special, beautiful, transforming, fun journey to you innerself.

Heaven on earth

“The true nature retreat May 2019 felt like coming home in nature. The Mountain is a spacious, quiet & magnificent spot that invites you to take time off from your busy life, to make time/space for yourself & to turn to the inside . The accommodation is beautiful & has all comfort that is needed. Wouter & Laura are the perfect hosts and make you feel very welcome. Starting the day with Wouter’s spiritual talk is heartwarming & inspiring, the breathing sessions & meditations did feel very healing. Laura’s yoga classes on the deck are amazing, challenging & in open air . Fire ceremony, silent day, partner yoga, Kirta & hikings to beautiful spots middle of nature did bring us closer to each other and especially closer to ourselves. Abi is serving delicious vegetarian food and is more than a cook, she really fits into the retreat and spoiled us with her energy and enthusiasm . I really feel grateful for this week in paradise <3

Once in a life time experience

“I feel very lucky that I had the privilege to join 2 retreats from the Mountain Ibiza. I had a really beautiful, magical, inspirational time in both. We went very deep. We laughed, cried, shared and especially in the Womens Yoga Retreat I felt empowered and connected with the other sisters. But we also reconnected deeply within ourself. About who we are and what our own heart desires. I loved the journey where Laura guides us in beautiful yoga, meditation, dance sessions and rituals. I think we all left the retreat as a more authentic and powerful selfs. Don’t forget the beautiful places we stayed and have seen in nature and the very jummy food prepared by chef Abby. I would recommend this to everyone, something you should once experienced in your lifetime.”

Peace and happiness on the mountain

“That was one amazing week full of yoga practice, meditation, good food, peace and quiet (no reception on the mountain!), beautiful nature, amazing trips and rituals. Laura took us all on a journey that I soon won’t forget, she welcomed us with lots of warmth and openness, took us to many special places and guided us to our deep inner self. A week full of sharing, femininity and just being.”

Women Retreat – good choice!

“I first thought that one week of vacation is going to be more stressful than relaxing and I arrived with very mixed feelings. But when I left the retreat I felt that more than one week had passed, I was able to relax, connect with my feelings and simply enjoy the time to think and reflect. The food prepared by Abi was amazing and the activities we did as a group where all well aligned to the topic of femininity. In the end I can say that I fully enjoyed the retreat, regardless the bad weather that we had some days. Thank you Laura and thank you girls, for making this week so special!!”

Het was echt super!

“Ik was afgelopen week bij Laura op de Finca in Ibiza voor de vrouwenretreat
Het was echt super! Laura is een absolute topper, leuke groep, lekker eten, goede yoga en meditatie met steeds wisselende thema’s, veel ongekende activiteiten tussendoor: Healing sound meditatie, Vrouwen cirkels op onverwachte locaties, ecstatic dancing, Spa, massage, Reiki, etc etc Kortom: het was een groot relax-feest en ben helemaal relaxed met goede herinneringen weer thuis. Ga zeker volgend jaar weer doen! Dank je Laura AHO

An experience for a lifetime

‘At a lovely place, surrounded by nature, back to basics, the Ibiza Women Retreat peels you like an onion, layer by layer, until you reach your deepest self.. where Laura beautifully guides you, with ceremonies, music and sounds, laughing and dancing. It is an experience for a lifetime and a very special journey. As the retreat cleared my head from all the clouds, I’m thankful for all the beautiful women with whom I joined this retreat’

Very special and inspiring week

‘What a blessing to do this retreat up in the mountains. The combination of the beautiful nature, accomodation, food and the lovely hosts Laura & Wouter made me feel completely recharged. The program was build really good and I really liked the day of silence. It was an very special and inspiring week for me. Thank you so much!’

Happy our paths crossed

The True Nature Retreat May 2019 was my second retreat experience at the Mountain Ibiza with Laura and Wouter. The first time I joined the retreat in wintertime, and this time in sunny summer time. And again it was an amazing experience! The program, location and the food, everything together the whole package makes this week an amazing experience. No matter if you are a starter yogi or advanced yogi, the program is built up in such way all can join and that you never have a dull moment. The location on the mountain is very peaceful and beautiful which really helps you to disconnect from your daily live. And last but not least, the food is always very well taken care off. Super delicious healthy meals that are served makes the whole retreat package complete. Eating vegan is not boring at all, actually you will experience how well your body react to this and that it is super tasteful, real magic on your plate. Both Laura and Wouter are very loving and caring persons, who make you feel welcome at their retreat place. I am very happy that our paths have crossed, and definitely will come back another time”’

Een duik in jezelf

“Authentieke finca boven op een berg. Prachtige locatie midden in de natuur. Goed om even helemaal tot rust te komen. Vlakbij leuke strandjes en andere leuke bezienswaardigheden in het noorden. Ontbijt was heerlijk en biologisch, rekening gehouden met intoleranties (gluten, lactose,…) Heerlijk ontspannende (en hartverwarmende) yogales ‘s morgens. Meditatie bij Tom bijgeboekt. Top-ervaring! Een echte duik in jezelf en je emoties. Laura en Wouter zijn superlief en heel gastvrij!

Helemaal tot rust gekomen

“Ik heb vier dagen de yoga retreat gedaan bij The Mountain Ibiza en ben helemaal tot rust gekomen. En het eiland heeft echt al mijn verwachtingen overtroffen! Ik zou deze retreat echt aan iedereen aanraden! Het huisje ligt bovenop een berg midden in de natuur en is superschattig en draait helemaal op zonne-energie. De yogalessen worden gegeven op een supermooie plek tussen de carobebomen en zijn precies een goede balans tussen bewegen en ontspanning. Elke ochtend wordt er met veel liefde een heerlijk ontbijt gemaakt en in de namiddag een vuurtje gestookt om het huisje voor de nacht op te warmen. Laura en Wouter zijn superlief en behulpzaam. Ik vond het fijn dat het programma alleen sochtends was, waardoor ik in de middag het eiland met de auto kon verkennen. Ik heb tijdens mijn verblijf ook andere yoga gasten leren kennen waar ik veel mee ben opgetrokken; samen hebben we prachtige witte zandstrandjes met helderblauw water marktjes en restaurantjes bezocht. Ik kijk met een heel warm gevoel terug op deze vakantie, ik heb ervan genoten en ben van plan de retreat zeker nog eens te doen! Ik raad het aan voor iedereen die yoga wil combineren met mooie natuur, prachtige strandjes en lekker eten.

Blissful Bali

“..die Tropische Luft, der Duft von Blühten, liebenswerte Menschen, eine harmonische Frauengruppe, wohltuende Massagen, gutes vegetarisches Essen, einfach nur göttlich.. willkommen in Bali Laura hat sich um jeden Einzelnen bemüht und um das Wohl aller gesorgt. Es war eine unvergessliche Reise zu sich selbst in einer wundervollen Frauengruppe, wo es einem nur gut gehen kann…einfach die Seele baumeln zu lassen, abschalten und den Alltag hinter sich zu lassen. Das Retreat war mit tollen Aktivitäten ausgeschmückt, welche man ohne Laura kaum finden kann. Es war sehr schön und würde es sofort wieder machen. Bettina -from Swiss

Recommendation for every women!

“This February 2019 I treated myself to join “The Bali Bliss Women’s Yoga retreat”. For me it was something I wanted to do for a while but never found the perfect itinerary or doubted too much. When I saw the program for this week and read the idea behind this week I felt immediately that this would be my kind of retreat. I honestly can say that my feeling was so right and now when I got home for about 2 weeks I can recommend it to every women! It was such a beautiful and peaceful experience. The idea about the retreat was to really celebrate being a women and also take care and spoil ourselves. When do you ever get to do that and then a whole week!!? The spoiling was there every day: our nice house, the really really lovely food prepared by really nice balinese ladies but also massages, a traditional balinese ritual, lots of yoga and the women’s circle where we shared and listened to each other. Besides the spoiling we also really had a great atmosphere in the group, which was hosted by Laura! Laura made sure everybody felt at ease and because this we all felt like we could be ourselves. I met such lovely ladies from all over the world and we all connected. The program was made by Laura to make sure you could connect but also have your private time when you wanted. I don’t think this review could really sum up how great it was but it really was! I came home so full of excitement about this trip that I almost want to come to the next version again. Laura really put a great effort in creating this retreat and you feel that she knows how to be kind to ourselves and really take the time to love ourselves and nourish our body. It’s so important to do that once in a while, so don’t doubt and book the retreat!! It’s a combination of a great holiday to a great country with taking care of yourself but also free time to explore Ubud if you want to….. You could buy all the dresses or other nice things in the world but this is truly worth more and you can look back to a magical week in lovely Ubud with the best host Laura. Wish I could go back there now ;)! Love Leonie

Living a magical worry free week!

This was my first yoga retreat which was called “Bali Bliss Women Yoga Retreat “and indeed it was!  Moreover, if I could sum it all in one word, I would choose the word “PERFECT”. One-week yoga retreat in Bali with Laura was just amazing. Each day was more enjoyable and more empowering than the day before with the many self-care activities (Mediation / Dancing / Yoga / Spa / Massage / Hiking / Water ritual) we have done. Laura really helps you connect deep within yourself and your femininity, live by the moment and love and cherish yourself; you will live a magical worry free week thinking only about the inspiring surroundings. The villa we stayed in was so wonderful and luxuries with a good location (10-15 mins by car to Ubud Centre). The healthy meals were absolutely yummy and nourishing. The part I liked most about the retreat (which I was a bit worried about before joining ) is the atmosphere we shared; we were more of yoga sisters than a yoga group or team (I guess I was lucky to be in a retreat filled with powerful beautiful ladies from all over the world ). After the week is done, I felt so shining, radiant, relaxed, loved, happy, and calm but most importantly I felt so light. This week will always have a special place in my heart and mind . Can’t wait for a woman retreat in Ibiza to join with beautiful Laura!!

Deep dive into yourself, explore your femininity!

Laura designed her first Women’s Retreat on the mystical “Island of the Gods” – Bali – this year and I was fortunate to be a part of it. If you are looking to dive deep into yourself, explore your femininity, self-love, sorority and conditioning as awoman, this retreat is for you! Laura creates a beautiful space to share the ancient wisdom of the feminine, to spoil our senses, to reconnect to the heart and to face the resistance of the mind and the limits of the body. And she does this in a gentle way. She inspires me as a yoga teacher and as an authentic woman and mother. She taught me a lot. The retreat will bring many insights to those who remain open. I am very grateful to her for that. Namaste! Dara from Paris

Magic Moments in Bali

The Bali Bliss Women’s Yoga retreat was such a beautiful experience in so many ways! The gorgeous villa, the pool, the beautifully designed space, the location and the deliciously healthy meals every day created such a luxurious stay and home base for us to explore the magical Ubud area. Laura created such a perfectly lovely schedule of shared activities that allowed us to get to know each other, Balinese culture and Ubud, to deepen our yoga and meditation practices, to explore new pampering and self-care rituals, as well as having the space to explore and be on our own. It was such a wonderful week getting to know such interesting, inspired and kind-hearted women from all over the world. You can be sure that any retreat lead by Laura will be one of authentic connection, relaxation, growth, laughs, magical moments and beautiful memories that will last a lifetime!

Wonderful start of the New Year

I attended the New Year Mountain Ibiza Retreat 2018/2019. I wanted time to focus inwards and take care of my body and the retreat gave me just what I needed and more. It was a perfect balance of Vinyasa yoga, Yin Yoga, meditation, being in nature, delicious food and good company. The yoga practice was built up from more basic routines in the beginning to more technically advanced classes in the end, but with attendance to everybodies level and with assurance that were you are is just perfect. I particularly liked the partner yoga which was new to me and alot of fun. Laura and Wouter guided us through the week being lovingly present and at the same time professional and obviously experienced in what they do and feel passionate about. I will certainly recommend Moutain Ibiza retreats to anyone interested in yoga and inner work.

Soul cleaning yoga retreat

Although just a few weeks back home from my holidays at Ibiza I already long back to the very nice yoga retreat I followed at the Mountain. Wouter and Laura are such open welcoming people. I loved the days filled with different kinds of meditation & yoga, phylisophical lessons from Wouter, very nice vegan food and nice fellow participants. The whole atmosphere was relaxed. And the fact that in the afternoon we had approx 4/5 hours free time made me and others explore the (silent) beaches nearby. But also the ‘silent’ walk and some other excursions we did all together were really so nice and impressive that these will stay with me in memory and heart. I certainly will book such a retreat with them again. It is so valuable for your body and mind to get a ‘reset’ as they gave me during this retreat. Thanks again for a lovely heartwarming time !!
