YOGA IN GLORIOUS GREECE

17th - 24th June 2018

Workshop Room in Tuscany

Lefkada, the island in Greece where the retreat is taking place, means “white rocks” and according to mythology, the poetess Sappho threw herself into the sea at Cape Lefkada because of the love for Phaon. Or perhaps it was the famous Ithaca of Homer, with Odysseus’ palace located on the south coast of the island. So a place steeped in rich culture, historic sites, museums, monasteries; all this before you even head to the spectacular beaches and crystal clear blue sea or explore charming traditional villages.

Only one of 2 Greek islands joined to the mainland by a bridge, our yoga venue reflects the unspoilt and peaceful nature of the island. Concealed in the hills of Neochori village, with a super outdoor yoga platform and stunning views over the rugged countryside, we will have the best of both worlds in Lefkada. Time to chill out and soak up the atmosphere and views, and a minivan at our disposal to take us to and from the beach or the nearby towns.

The sheer pleasure of doing as much or as little as you fancy. Hike the hills, go sailing or boating, take a food walk around the island or just hang out in the serene venue. Time to decompress from an increasingly frenetic lifestyle.

The food philosophy of the venue will ensure that we will be supremely nourished: “ In our cooking, we aim to use local ingredients, avoid refined sugars, industrial products, dairy or white flours and whenever we use meat, eggs, fish, yoghurt and cheese, we make sure they come from local farmers. We incorporate modern food trends from raw, macro, and vegan diets, creating a unique result. We always make an effort to respect nature cycles and use seasonal products. Join us on this tasteful journey of rediscovering well-being through a balanced diet. Check out http://foodpath.gr/about-us/.

Our accommodation will be typical of a Greek village; most rooms are en suite; in some
cases, 2 rooms will share a bathroom.

The nearest airport is Prevenza Lefkas from Gatwick - see flights with Thomson Airways here.

The yoga holidays have been a wonderful body and mind experience. Each day beginning with a full yoga class waking up every muscle, followed by a full local breakfast. The rest of the day allowed time to rest, read and experience the locality of the holiday. Late afternoon yoga class, with time to explore new asanas, followed by a meditation class and local dinner in the Centre. The venues of all the yoga holidays were always well chosen, allowing maximum escape from home. The group of students also provide company, with a shared experience to remember long after returning home. Lesley gives a great experience with the opportunity to explore one's practice.
