Balance Holidays welcomes Sah D’Simone as the leading expert on this programme. Having amassed strong recognition online and in-person for being a pioneer of a sassy, heart-based growth movement. In this exclusive, first of its kind retreat, Sah will introduce and guide guests on a deep dive into The Sah Method. A dynamic and playful experience created by Sah, that integrates ecstatic dance, breathwork, mantra and meditation to awaken, energise and heighten the power in the four most essential qualities of our hearts: Compassion, Love, Joy and Wisdom. The immeasurable and limitless resources that are ours to enjoy, amplify and radiate. Through Sah’s masterful synthesis of ancient Tantric Buddhist philosophy and modern contemplative psychology, that will support his teachings of the Sah Method. You will gain a well-rounded understanding of how The Method works, and why. Enhancing the experience of the practice to propel your spiritual journey to the next level.


Across the retreat, each day’s agenda will follow a theme. As we explore the theory and practice behind each of the components: dance, breath, mantra and meditation and the four modules: Compassion, Love, Joy and Wisdom. Through this, we will be able to take a raw look at our belief systems that have kept us stuck. Tearing away the labels that hold us back from embracing unbridled self-expression and heart qualities. To complement Sah’s method and practice, a DJ specialising in multi-dimensional rhythms that see funky and soul disco, hip-hop and reggae grooves infused together will be present throughout the entirety of the programme. Shifting and raising the energy levels, positivity and carefree joy into every guest through intention and sound waves. Marvel in the greatness and freedom of the outdoors with time in nature and on a social service.


In parallel to Sah’s personal principles of diet, mute the disparaging voices of the mind and listen only to the signals of the body to establish positive and sustainable relationships and habits with nutrition. Capturing culinary traditions of the Balearic Islands through local recipes and concepts. Combined with fresh, organic ingredients grown in neighbouring soils. All meals will be prepared using seasonal fruits and vegetables, paired with small portions of fish and free-range protein meats, legumes and gluten-free grains in place of carbohydrates. Refined sugars, dairy, lactose and soy products, sweeteners and alcohols will be absent from meals throughout the retreat to detox and reset the bodies.


Reflecting the harmonious unity of untamed Mediterranean coastlines and lush greenery, separated only by secluded bays and sandy footpaths. Relax in the laps of simplicity and tranquility at OKU Ibiza. Derived from the Japanese spiritual and architectural concept of “inner space”, OKU Ibiza opens its doors May 2021. With direct access to the tucked away beach, Cala Gració and the largest swimming pool in Ibiza, it has been meticulously designed to inspire guests and awaken their true inner self: connected and rested.


By connecting to the four innate qualities in our hearts, reclaim your voice and expand your heart for positive growth. Stripping away the noise of judgement and fear, peeling away layers of compromised tendencies that no longer serve us. Carving space for new dialogue and contexts to learn tools to facilitate enhanced fulfilment, gratitude and happiness in every encounter and experience after you return home from this exceptionally unique experience.
