Daniel Harte DIRECTOR

Dan is a Londoner who spent many years in the late 80's living and running his own business in Tel Aviv Israel He is a fully trained master painter and decorator.  Maintenance is also a skill he learned along the way. 

In Ibiza in the late 90's , Dan spent some time at a friend’s yoga retreat, which inspired him to run his own. Once Dan discovered Villa Roca for sale, he knew that it would be the ideal location, because of its outstanding beauty and closeness to Benirras beach.  In 2000 he started Ibiza Yoga with his partner Sarah Robbie. 

For several recent years Dan ran his own catering company in London . He converted a Route Master bus with seating upstairs and a kitchen down. He cooked for Jamie Oliver , The 2 Fat Hairy Bikers and Ann Widdecombe alongside catering at Festivals such as Glastonbury , The Big Chill ,Secret Garden , Kimberley to name but a few. Dan is a foodie and a talented Vegetarian Chef.  Sometimes he cooks for the retreat but we also hire in chefs to have a variety of cooking styles . Dan answers all the emails and puts together the teacher schedule each year, he does not host the retreat.

"It had long been a goal of both Dan and myself to offer a place where people can 'come together' to focus their mind and body into a healthy activity. Eat delicious vegetarian food, swim in the nearby sea and breath the fresh pinetree air. Have fun and break from ordinary lifestyles to leave refreshed energised and perhaps see life in a fresh new light ". This goal is accomplished with 'Ibiza Yoga' a company in its 16th year .
