About us

Welcome and thank you for stopping by!
We are Elena and Rosie, the founders of Shakti World Retreats.
Based on the magical island of Ibiza, we have been running retreats and yoga holidays as Ibiza Yoga Getaway since 2014.

Our interest in travel and discovering unique yoga destinations has encouraged us to expand our project outside the island to inspiring and captivating locations.

Working and living with the hectic rhythms of Ibiza, we have experienced first-hand the incredible benefits of taking uninterrupted time out on a yoga retreat, and we want to share these with you!

I have felt a connection with yoga since I was little and, together with horses and art, it has been one of my great passions in life.

After studying for many years in Italy with my great teacher Pierluisa Robecchi, I decided to go directly to the source and travel to India. There, I deepened my knowledge of the Himalayan Yoga Tradition, one of  India’s most authentic forms of yoga, coming directly from the yogis of the Himalayan caves. I trained under the direct supervision of Swami Veda Bharati, joining regular retreats at the Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama Ashram in Rishikesh, India.

Since 2011, I have been living in Ibiza and running my own retreat centre in beautiful Casa Shakti and I now am settled in my yoga paradise in the hills with my horses and cats.

I grew up in Italy and England and have always loved to travel and explore. After two years on the road with my husband, we landed in Ibiza and fell in love with the island’s energy, nature and outdoor lifestyle.

Here I met Elena and was introduced to yoga, its lifestyle and its incredible benefits. I feel stronger, more flexible and more focused now than I ever did in my 20s and yoga and meditation have become a big part of my life.

Photography is another of my great passions and you can find me shooting weddings and events with Studio by Ana Lui and working on my own independent projects as Rosie Randisi Photography.
