A perfect final holiday before settling in for winter
About the Yoga
In the morning, Matt and Saz will lead an invigorating vinyasa-based practice with asana, pranayama (breathwork) and meditation. The evening practice will vary from a chilled style like hatha and yin to a skill-based workshop like inversions or partner yoga. One afternoon will include an optional journaling workshop on finding purpose.
About the Villa
Set within a beautifully restored finca and tower perched high on a mountain in the north of the island, Can Luminosa takes retreat living to the next level in terms of luxury, elegance, style and experience alike.
This newly refurbished property possesses all the high-end finishes of a luxury Ibiza villa or five-star boutique hotel combined with the creature comforts of a retreat venue. From the moment you step over the threshold, it is instantly apparent you’ve arrived at a space of healing. From the fresh countryside air, fragrant with pine, thyme and rosemary to iconic views across the lush green hills and over the Mediterranean Sea to Formentera, made even more magical as the sun sets right before your eyes each night, it is as if the mountain was put there by Mother Nature to hold space for you. Within the grounds of the villa, you will find infinity bio-pool, a tranquil yoga shala, beautifully landscaped outdoor spaces and bedrooms based on the healing vibrations and frequencies of different crystals. The only problem is, you may never want to leave.

How to Book
Before 15 April, you can secure your place with a non-refundable deposit of £300 per person for shared rooms or £600 for single occupancy. Balancing payment will be due by 10 July 2020.
For single occupancy, prices are available on request and are close to double the price above.
To book, please call Saz on 07876 347400 or Matt on 07861 465691 or email to discuss which rooms are available and best suited to your needs.
Payment, Refund & Cancellation Policy
Before 15 April 2020, a non-refundable deposit of £300 per person for sharing (or £600 for a single occupancy room) is required to secure your space on the retreat. Your space is only confirmed once the deposit has been made, payable to Matthew Huy Yoga. Bank details will be provided via email.
The balancing payment is due by 10 July 2020 and is payable in British Sterling directly to Matthew Huy Yoga. After 10 July 2020, only full payment will be accepted. The amount payable is dependent on the type of accommodation that you choose. If you cancel after paying and we are able to sell your place to someone else, we will provide you with a 50% refund of the full price paid. Alternatively, you may elect to transfer your place to someone else.
An early bird discount of £100 is available if you pay the deposit or the full amount before 11:59 pm on 15 April 2020. The discount will be applied to the balancing payment and not the deposit.
We suggest you take out travel insurance as soon as you book your retreat, which will cover you for cancellations, as we cannot waive our cancellation policy or be liable for loss of your holiday in the event that you are unable to travel to the retreat.
By making payment, you are agreeing to the terms and conditions stated on this page.
