-- FLOW & RESTORE YOGA RETREAT --
"Awake, my dear
Be kind to your sleep heart
Take it out into the vast fields of light
and let it breathe"
ABOUT THE RETREAT
It is with great delight that I can announce my return to the beautiful Greek Island of Ithaca from Saturday 8th June to Saturday 15th June 2019. Come and join me for 'Flow & Restore', a week of vibrant Yoga, sea air, sunshine and great food in this stunning venue, overlooking the breathtaking backdrop of the Ionian sea. No matter what your level this retreat is an invitation to explore the many delights that Yoga has to offer – it’s your time to relax, rest and rejuvenate on this very special island.
Ithaca is a Greek island retreat set in a place of outstanding natural beauty, overlooking the sea and eastern coastline of neighbouring Kefalonia. Nestled in an elevated wilderness of olive trees and exposed rock, its natural beauty speaks for itself. An emphasis on indoor-outdoor living ensures full use of the land and its treasures that include sweeping and hidden beaches below. The nearest airport is Kefalonia – a ferry then takes you from the port town of Sami to Ithaca.
There are six luxury double bedrooms in the main house and one large double studio. There are also five Mongolian yurts that are staggered up between rocks, forestry and winding walkways. All bedrooms are en-suite and air-conditioned with mosquito nets, coco-mat mattresses and wood panelled ceilings. The five Mongolian yurts are light and airy inside, sleeping up to two people. Two share an outdoor bathroom whilst the rest are ensuite. Pathways and steps provide access to the yurt platforms.
Food comprises of 3 home cooked nutritious and delicious vegetarian meals a day, using fresh local produce. All vegetables are organic and sourced from the best of what Ithaca and neighbouring Kefalonia has to offer.
