In the middle of the wee...k, we take you on a beautiful boat trip to one of the best snorkeling spots along with visiting some of the spots where the plastic pollution is very clear and waiting for us to step up and do something about it. The local ocean preservation project Asociacion Ondine will teach us what their research over the past years has been showing them and how we can be part of the solution.
Ahimsa (non-violence) is one of the 5 Yamas in yoga philosophy and it’s meaning goes well beyond not using violence against others. Applying Ahimsa can help us look at our actions and their consequences, whether direct or indirect, with more care and consciousness. On this Ocean Ahimsa retreat we will look closer at the power of applying Ahimsa in your daily life and the positive impact this has on the environment and the communities we live in.

Yoga Retreats offer a unique opportunity to become still, dive deep and reconnect. Connecting with ourselves opens the door for us to connect to life and the world we live in on a deeper level. This can feel like coming home, but can also be painful as we become fully aware of the pain that exists on our planet and how our collective actions have contributed to it. This includes the state of our ecosystem and other urgent issues we are facing on a global level.
Together we will embark on an inward journey applying yoga, forgiveness and self-discovery techniques to reveal practical ways you can share your heart’s calling and create a positive impact
The insights and connection gained during this module will be combined with practical tools to apply in your daily life and share with your community. We support you in joining our tribe of strong-hearted individuals who are passionate about our planet and ready to take steps towards a sustainable way of living for all.

Suze is a Psychologist and certified yoga teacher. Throughout the years she deepened her knowledge in both fields by adding Family Constellations, TRE (Trauma Release Exercises) and Yoga Nidra to her qualifications.
Her passion for travel, a conscious lifestyle and (self) healing inspired her to start Global Flow Retreats in 2010. Global Flow Retreats offers retreat programs that have the power to transform your life.
Suze believes strongly that the holistic powers of combining yoga with disciplines like mindfulness, Ayurveda, trauma and stress release practices, or family constellations offer all the tools we need to not only find inspiration but to gain insight and find the healing that can alter the course of our lives.
The next step in this evolution is to use these tools and understanding of our connectedness to create a sustainable lifestyle that supports the eco-system we are a part of instead of depleting it. The sustainability module on the special retreats facilitates this process.
We will be staying at Tramuntana Flow, a beautiful place of peace that offers you simplicity and comfort. The Zen-inspired decoration reflects balance and harmony. Natural colors and soft tones induce relaxation and calmness.
The yoga shala, where we will have our daily practices, is flooded with natural light and the 3 big window-doors offer the magnificent views of the valley and mountains. The sound of birds and nature are the background music in savasana. The open-air yoga terrace has astonishing views to the mountains and valley, where orange, lemon, almond and fig trees thrive and a wide variety of local herbs and aromatic bushes entwine themselves along the paths and gardens.
The gardens offer a wonderful space to relax and read under the shade of palm trees and you can go for a refreshing swim in the large outdoor swimming pool. There are sunbeds around the pool with additional seating under a wooden canopy with picnic tables.
You will enjoy home cooked vegetarian meals, that will nurture both your body as well as your taste buds The meals will be served in the dining room and the living room or at the big communal dining table inside the house or outside on the terrace. An after-meal conversation or the typical siesta can be held on the big sofa in the living room area in front of the fireplace. Electronic devices are most often a source of distraction, therefore Tramuntana Flow provides free Wi-Fi only in these social areas.
