"Awake, my dear

Be kind to your sleep heart

Take it out into the vast fields of light

and let it breathe"

 - Hafiz





It is with great delight that I can announce my return to the beautiful Greek Island of Ithaca from Saturday 19th June to Saturday 26th June 2021.  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 bedrooms in the main house, two of which are large suites.  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.  One has its own 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.




Mornings:  Starting the day with a 2 hour Yoga class consisting of both alignment based Hatha and vibrant Vinyasa and Mandala flow.


Breakfast: Class is followed by breakfast.

Afternoons:  Totally free for you to do as you wish.  Lunch is provided.

Early evening: An hour long Yin and Restorative Yoga practice including a variety of Pranayama techniques and Meditation.


Dinner: An evening banquet of delicious food will be waiting for us after our evening yoga session.
