Yoga Retreat in Greece, 4 - 11 May 2019


I am very excited to be offering a week-long retreat on one of the most beautiful islands of the Mediterranean . Rest, recharge and reset with twice daily Yoga practice, delicious local food and swimming in the turquoise Ionian sea.

The stunning island of Corfu, with a history dating back to the kingdom of the Phaeacians, is situated in the north-west part of Greece, in the Ionian Sea. With a rich mix of cultural influences, including Venetian, French and British, Corfu is known for its lush green surrounding, beautiful beaches, crystal clear blue sea and the famous Greek hospitality.

Our venue is located on the tranquil bay of Dassia, 15 kilometres north of the historic town of Corfu and airport. We will stay at a beautiful family run boutique hotel that is only a stone’s throw away from the Blue-Flag awarded beach.

Yoga

Our retreat day will start with pranayama (breathing techniques) and short meditation followed by an energising Vinyasa practice to awaken the body and mind. Modifications will be offered for all levels. We will dedicate time to break down challenging poses. Insights into the philosophy of Yoga will be offered to encourage reflection.

The late afternoon session will be deeply relaxing and quiet and will combine restorative and Yin postures. We will close with meditation.

All our yoga practice will take place on the covered wooden terrace next to the beach. Mats will be provided but please feel free to bring your own.

There will be a free half day during the week to offer the opportunity to explore the island.
