Formentera, Spain | Yoga + Photography Slow Living Retreat | formentera, spain | september 2017

from 2,650.00

This coming September, when the water is still warm but the crowds are dispersing, we're returning to the unreal, aqua sea of Formentera, a sleepy island just off the coast of Spain, for the second year of our slow living retreat with local cook & photographer Carolina Ferrer of Cocina de Carolina and chef Aaron Teece of Studio Neon. With yoga each morning, tons of photographic opportunities, and long afternoons spent on the beach and in the ocean, this retreat is designed to embrace the languid island pace and give guests the opportunity to take a break from hectic daily life.

We'll spend our days eating long meals together outdoors, learning photography & the art of visual storytelling, and enjoying conversation & discussion with one another as well as exploring all the island has to offer—sailing, fresh seafood, and gorgeous beaches. The villa we'll call home during the retreat is a few minutes walk from a beach, and tapas, cava, and sun promise to be plentiful.

We plan to allow plenty of down time for reading & writing, napping, swimming, discussions, photo editing, sun bathing & sipping, or simply doing nothing at all. There will also be a watercolor painting class with a local artist, a sunset beach picnic, and a paella cookout. 

The purpose of this retreat is to recharge, rejuvenate, relax, and reconnect. Creativity can only blossom if we allow ourselves to be still once in a while; we see more clearly when we slow down & ideas come fresh. 

What this won't be is a hectic, highly structured "workshop"—it's truly a retreat. Both Carolina and Beth will be teaching photography for the duration of the retreat to those guests that would like to learn or refine their skills. For advanced photographers this retreat is an opportunity to connect with likeminded creatives, build your portfolio, and glean inspiration from the island. 

There will be time to explore the topics you're interested in be it post-processing, learning to use a camera, slow living, visual story telling, social media, career building, or finding your own creative voice. We want this to retreat to be a living, breathing oasis of beauty & creativity in which we can respond to each of our guests individual needs.
