Cynthia Micallef, Founder

“There is only one success in life: to be able to spend your life in your own way” Christopher Morley

Hiya!

An island girl from Malta, I made the life-changing decision to come to the mystical island of Ibiza after years of corporate life in London. My passion for wellbeing, yoga and nutrition led me to create Harmonic Escapes, with the aim of providing unforgettable Ibiza retreats. Together we will explore Ibiza’s beautiful beaches and magical sunsets, enjoying fun and laughter in a relaxed setting.

I promise you a transformational and empowering experience with moments of bliss, enlightenment, clarity, gratitude, creativity and, most importantly, a profound sense of feeling alive!

As a busy mum to two small kids, I understand how difficult it is to take time out. However, I also realise that in order to give my best, I need to recharge and re-energise. I became hooked on yoga while working in London, going on to study under many inspirational teachers across the globe and opening my own yoga studio in London’s Canary Wharf, before moving with my family to Ibiza in 2015. I pursued Vinyasa Flow yoga teacher training with the incredibly inspiring Mercedes Ngoh in London and have studied with so many great teachers, Eckhart Tolle, Kim Eng, Max Strom, Baron Baptiste, Stewart Gilchrist.

I look forward to sharing my experiences, my never-ending learning journey and the beauty and mystery of Ibiza with you.

Cynthia

A fantastic retreat! I haven’t felt so energised and so relaxed in years! The treatments were professional, the yoga was well adapted to a range of abilities.

I enjoyed every minute. The villa is beautiful; the trips away were fun, fantastic new experiences, moments of calm and peace observing the beautiful sunsets. It was exactly what I needed, I could not have hoped for more. Patricia is a goddess, I have never felt so nourished. It has given me encouragement to provide the same for myself.
