SATYA RETREAT – ELEMENTS
AcroYoga – Yoga – Aguahara – Thai Massage – Somatic & Sound exploration – Dance – Sup Yoga – Nature Adventure
Ibiza | 5th -11th of September
Inspired by the wild and vibrant nature that surrounds Ibiza we would like to invite a greater connection through the practices we offer in relation to the Elements and understanding these with in us as we all are made from Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Ether.
The Satya experience is a full week of raising body awareness, exploring your Truth and authentic expressions through a wide range of practices: Yoga, Acroyoga, Thai massage, Mindfulness, Somatic movement, Dance, Contact improv, Aguahara (water explorations), music and kirtan.
For this Satya Retreat, we invite a deeper connection and experience with Nature. We will be exploring the Elements within ourselves and their qualities through the practices we offer and taking them out into magical spots on the island to feel them even closer while you unfold your body insights and awareness.
Earth is our roots and connection to our physical body, to our structure and strength. It is our place of creation and our grounding force.
We explore this Earth element through the supporting structure of a Base in Acroyoga, the use of body weight and gravity in Thai Massage and the offering of our centre to another to support and create through Contact Improv.
Air teaches us to fly with lightness, it is our breath, it powers movement and inspiration as we move in life.
We explore this element through empowering ourselves and flying in Acroyoga and exploring greater freedom of movement and mobility within all the practices. Reconnecting to our capacity and presence of breath thorugh Pranayama and Yoga
Water invites us to flow more in life, to soften our rigid structures and to let our emotions and feelings be expressed. We explore the water element through Aguahara where we return to the water and we become one with the water as we explore and surrender into the waters as you experience being hold in the water and discovering your dance in the water.
Fire is the passion the ignition, the determination we face life with, it is also the force of creation, destruction and transformation. We explore the fire element thorugh kindling our inner fires and optimising your vitality through the more solar practice in Yoga and Acroyoga but also kindling our passion in our hearts through kirtan/ sound journey and dance.
Ether/ Space is the connection and relation between our individuality and the rest of the world, our relation to our community, to nature and to how we are all interconnected. It is the space that holds all the other elements, it is the space we arrive in when we are in presence. We explore this element within each practice as we tap into those moments of pure being, expressing your authentic selves, dissolving into emptiness or a deep opening in the heart and connection with others.
More than a holiday, this retreat is a transformational experience to step into your strength, build trust, express yourself, open to your full potential and embody love and presence. Our programme helps bring greater elasticity on the physical and mental level; increase energy and vitality and enhance your life force with an elegant motion.
The quality of Presence is that which defines the way you find balance between the manifestation of your dreams and the flow of life. Basically we wonder how to raise our awareness with the surroundings, how to create more space for inner serenity and how to impulse a more creative purpose into life.
Whichever way you flow and fly, prepare yourself to be taken on an unforgettable journey by sought after international teachers Ola Jas & Zara Rutherford.

Zara has been exploring many movement, healing, spiritual and ecological practices over the past 10 years. For her life is a constant exploration of understanding the body, movement and expression to expand her perception, heal and develop her full potential. She is based between Ibiza and Mexico where she offers classes, workshops, retreats and sessions based in Yoga, Acroyoga, Thai Massage and Aguahara (aquatic experiences). She feels called to inspire and share this with others with the intention to cultivate a deeper connection and expressions through the body to our Authentic selves and invite in the qualities of presence, connection and play.
Ola Jas is working as a Yoga teacher worldwide and integrates different techniques to work out and release the body, in quest of balance and a holistic well being. Her unique interdisciplinary approach of the movement is based on a circus experience- a fusion of sensations and presence. Putting emphasis on inverted postures and cultivating a genuine sense of touch, she likes to practice yoga, acro and massage sequences in a flow motion. Setting up new prospects to broader the vision, she calls further the imagination to expand daily life into a renewed reality.
“For me Acroyoga is the lost of time and space reference, a molecular connection to the Present, where you get fully now and here. Light and empowered… Did you ever experience flying this way?
Surrender, trust, play. Find your inner child and the wise old one within. Bring them together, connect further with your surrounding. Be ready for anything to happen.
Fit your body, calm your mind and get to deeper level of consciousness through the experience. A volaaaaar!
