Day Sixteen Island Hopping around the Balearics - Benirras to San Joan, Ibiza #LP
I had a lovely nights sleep in the pagoda at Ibiza Yoga, I initially wasn’t sure when I saw how basic it was, it is almost a kin to glamping. There’s a shared toilet and shower, so you have to time when to get ready, but other than that it has a nice comfy bed and plenty of storage. The lay in was much needed and I felt really rested.
Today we went into San Joan to have a look around what they call a “hippy market” not quite what I was expecting in fact it was very over priced with plenty of alternative looking people, but that’s the only thing that can be said was slightly hippy. If you’re into boutique shopping this will be rather disappointing for you.
The afternoon was taken up with three hours of yoga, it sounds a lot but it was broken into parts with the first hour being meditative, some theory and slow warm ups. The next 90 minutes was taken up with flows also known as vinyasas and then a nice long savasana. I had initially thought I wasn’t going to be able to complete the full session in this heat, but I did.
That evening we went to the drumming party on the beach. Every Sunday musicans from all over the island come to Benirras to hold the largest sunset beach party on the island. I thought it might be quite chaotic, but surprisingly it wasn’t, even though there’s only one road in and out of Benirras. It was interesting see, but if you’re not staying in the north of the island it is certainly not worth the trouble travelling there.
I’ll update my blog more later.
Peace and love to one and all!
