Join us again on this yoga retreat in beautiful Greece!. Early summer is the perfect time to visit Greece - its sunny and warm but not too hot, perfect climate for yoga.
Our home for the week will be a stunning villa nestled on a hillside overlooking the sea ,the views are just magical , with very close proximity to the sea.
The villa provides the perfect spot to relax and to practice Yoga , in a totally tranquil unspoilt area of Greece ,really a truly special place.
There will be two yoga sessions a day of varying lengths, we will start the days with silent meditation and then a 2 hour dynamic morning practice , with suitable modifications to accommodate individual levels which we will build on during the 7 days to deepen your yoga practice.
The evening practice will be a slower practice,looking more at seated postures and breaking down postures that we can then incorporate into the flow of our morning practices, these evening classes will include more pranayama (breathing techniques), guided relaxation
On retreat you will have the time and space to focus fully on your yoga practice ,then the rest of the day will then be yours to take a walk through the village, swim in the ocean or simply relax by the pool.

Is this retreat right for you ?
The Yoga classes will be twice a day.
There are limited single occupancy rooms ,so unless you book early or bring a friend you will be given a same-sex room mate.
The venue is very special and a great place to really find tranquilty, it is in a remote setting ,so if you really want to detox from social media this retreat would be perfect for you as wifi can be intermittant .
Since we are not a restaurant we do not offer individual choices from the menu or special diets but if you have allergies,intolerences we will take that very much into account when we prepare the menu,so you can feel relaxed with the food.
The journey to the venue can take around 3.5 hours,but you will have a stop for refreshments etc ......we feel the venue is very much worth the journey though !!!.
Because of the remoteness of the venue if you want to explore the area .(taxis need to be booked in advance)
Prices: Save your spot!!, prices till 31st March 2020
Once booking is confirmed i will help you with flights and any transport requirements.
There may be an option for the group to be transferred by minibus ( 3/3.5 hours ) sharing the transfer costs (arrival into Thessaloniki from Gatwick by Easy jet is recommended ,this flight is an early morning flight )or you can easily take a coach to Volos and a taxi can be arranged to take you to the venue or fly in the day before to see the city .Return flights to leave either very late afternoon or evening if you are sharing the mini bus .
Other option is to take an International flight to Athens and use the airport shuttle service (55 euros) to Volos and taxi from there ,i can help you with this before you book the flights .
