On our 2018 Yoga Retreat Mallorca our practice each day will cultivate one of the most valuable skills of all, contentment. Each day will begin with an unrushed practice of postures, pranayama and meditation led by Mandy Ryle. 

During the rest of our days you can choose from an optional tour of Majorcan Bodegas (vineyards) or a day hike into the Serra Tramuntana Mountains. An included Village and Beach day is a must.
