-- ALL LEVELS YOGA RETREAT 2022 --
ABOUT THE RETREAT
It is with great delight that I can announce my return to the beautiful Greek Island of Ithaca from Saturday 25th June to Saturday 2nd July 2022. 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 us from the port town of Sami to Ithaca.
There are six luxury bedrooms in the main house, two of which are top floor, wrap around sea view suites with private balcony. All main house bedrooms are en-suite and air-conditioned with mosquito nets, coco-mat mattresses and wood panelled ceilings.
There are also two luxury Mongolian yurts that are staggered up between rocks, forestry and winding walkways. The yurts are larger than the rooms in the main house and are light and airy inside, sleeping up to two people. They are both ensuite and come with stand up fans.
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. Vegan options are available for all meals.
