Breathspiration is a retreat centre who specialise in hosting yoga and adventure sports retreats.  I am teaming up with them to 'push the boat out' ;) and offer you a carefully programmed adventure of a lifetime. Come and set yourself free with SUP Yoga sessions on the turquoise blue waters of Mallorca and scuba dive beneath the waves with myself, Cat Duval, and Breathspiration diving instructors guiding you to explore life beneath the waves. PADI fun dives and courses are available for those who are new to the game or you can simply opt to sit on the beach and bathe in the warm mid June summer rays.  

The programme is being carefully programmed to soothe your soul and ignite your shakti fire with Yoga, early morning meditation and Acroyoga, Partner Yoga and Thai Massage workshops woven carefully into the programme to help you reset your body, calm the mind and expand your practice.

The local chef will provide a freshly prepared plant based food cooked especially for you, including juices, nutritious recipes as well as locally sourced fish and seafood for those who are looking for the authentic taste of Mallorca.

The venue was built in the 13th century a belongs to the same family ever since. It has been renovated and modernised to comfort all our needs, however it is still filled with history.

It has 7 double rooms all with en-suite bathrooms, a medieval style, but fully equipped kitchen, a spacious dining room, two living rooms with fireplace, a huge terrace with amazing views, a swimming pool with chill out area and a beautiful yoga room equipped with mats, blocks, straps and blankets.

Due to these qualities you are absolutely free to be completely alone or share your free time with others in the group. The surrounding land offers great walking possibilities and you can take an excursion to the nearby village called Randa.
The house is located only 20 minutes from Palma de Mallorca International Airport and the beautiful sandy beach of Es Trenc is only a 30 minutes drive from us.

Be prepared to enjoy the beautiful weather, relaxing landscape, meeting interesting people and enjoying the great food! And all this as an extra to the deep and structured yoga practice! We hire our venue for groups and we offer some of our retreats on this location.

What Our Client's Say... 

"Cat's yoga is like giving myself a hug! She is sensitive to everyone in the class and I come away feeling full of positive energy. Her ethos is yoga is not about doing handstands off the edge of a cliff, it's about getting to know yourself. She inspires me to check in with myself and reflect, challenge myself and be playful with it, quieten my chattering monkey brain and choose what I focus on. She's a big hearted warrior of love"

Mia Underwood, Illustrator and Author

"It’s only been a few months but my practice has developed so much! Cat has an incredible ability to deliver a session that perfectly meets my needs on a particular week. We’ve worked on inversions and developing the playful side of my yoga practice. I’ve forgotten the fear I had abut going upside down and I’m sure that has helped my body to become stronger, by letting go of what was no longer serving me. I love the conditioning exercises we’ve done, so challenging and so much fun! And it’s opened up a new interest in acro yoga. Cat is incredibly knowledgable about muscles and systems in the body and that’s really helped me to understand postures. Cat has helped me develop strength and confidence which has benefitted all areas of my life. So grateful."

Roisin Iles-Jonas, Yoga Teacher

Cat Duval doing Therapeutic dlfying! Acroyoga                             About Cat 

 

Hi I'm Cat Duval, founder of Nine Lives Yoga. I specialises in leading collaborative Yoga experiences to enable clients to live in freedom and full self-expression. Nine Lives Yoga about living every breath with presence and playfulness no matter your background, body type or level of experience.  I specialise in what I call collaborative practice - this is the yoga of trust, communication and choice.  Yoga can inspire you to live life passionately, playfully and fearlessly with an open heart, a free mind and a strong, flexible and capable body.

 I founded Nine Lives Yoga motivated by a straight-talking yoga philosophy.  We are all about engaging every body with every body type in creative yoga events that celebrate life and connect us together.  I teach Acroyoga, partner yoga and social yoga, dynamic hatha yoga, vinyasa flow, and as a trained practitioner of Mindfulness, Thai yoga massage, NLP and Hypnotherapist I love practices that help us become more embodied and connected in our communities.  

Cat provides accessible events and transformational yoga coaching for people who want to live with presence, power and playfulness.
