Yoga Retreat in Corfu - October 2018
When?Start time: Saturday 14:00 (06 October)
End time: Saturday 17:00 (13 October)
I can't tell you how excited I am to be announcing my first yoga retreat in Corfu in October. This retreat will be a time to relax and revive, unwind in a tranquil environment, reconnect your senses and find space within your surroundings. A time when nothing is expected of you and everything is possible.
When summer seems to be a distant memory and the darker nights start setting in, October is the perfect time to get away, to rejuvenate, refresh and relax under the hot Greek sun. The retreat is located in Almyros, a peaceful paradise escape on the Island of Corfu, perfect if you’re looking to take a relaxing break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. You will stay at a traditional Corfiot sea-facing villa complete with picturesque beaches, two daily yoga classes and delicious Greek food. Oh and did I mention a free 20minute welcome massage? What more could you want?
Our beautiful Corfiot villa is located just a stone’s throw away from Almyros beach and offers breath-taking views of the Albanian coast. Substantial gardens located at the front and rear of the villa are blooming with trees and tropical flowers, creating a beautiful environment for you to relax and unwind.
Within the villa we offer 5 bedrooms, each with a picturesque balcony offering panoramic mountain or sea views, as well as a large attic room, ensuring an intimate experience for all.
The villa has been decorated in a traditional Greek Ionian theme, with comfortable beds designed to give you restful sleep throughout your stay. All of our beds are draped in 100% cotton, while luxury bath towels and toiletries are provided for all guests.
Greek food is renowned for its fantastic flavour and plentiful health benefits with the perfect mix of protein, whole grains, fruits and vegetables.
All food will be beautifully prepared healthy meals in the traditional Greek cuisine, encouraging you to discover new tastes as well as introduce you to healthy Greek style meals, which you can prepare once you return home.
Dinners consist of predominantly vegetarian dishes which include ingredients foraged from our garden. The produce prepared and served is all fair trade and our local chefs are experienced in cooking healthy, traditional dishes which offer you the true taste of Greece.
There will be two daily yoga classes, the morning class will be a dynamic energising vinyasa practice followed by restorative soothing yin in the evenings, with a special dose of yoga nidra one night. Each day we will work with a different theme, in both the morning and evening practice, so you can really immerse yourself in it. I also recommend bringing a notebook, journaling is a great way of processing anything that comes up and perfect if you’re looking to explore your creativity. Just like headstands, classes are not mandatory, it is your holiday so you are free to do with it whatever you choose.
During the day there is plenty of time to design your holiday to your wants and desires, whether it’s time to lounge around in the sun, or explore the stunning island and meet its locals. If you’re want to fill up your days with more activities you can book onto things such as scuba diving, bicycle tours, horse riding, personal training or extra yoga and massage.
The package per student (7 nights) includes:
5 Greek vegetarian dinners (no dinner during the day off and the boat day).
1 Greek lunch (on the boat day).
20 min welcome massage.
2 yoga sessions per day (morning and evening).
1 Yoga class on a peninsula for the evening yoga session (if the weather permits...)
1 day will be free of everything, to give you the opportunity to visit the island or to do whatever you want...
Price varies depending on which room you take, but starts from as little as £550.
10% Early bird discount applies to all bookings made before July 10th.
