About Your Instructors and yoga classes
We offer two yoga classes a day on our yoga retreats. A morning Vinyasa flow class from 8:30-10am – an active powerful class with modifications to allow advanced people to challenge themselves and beginners to practice at their own pace. And we also have an evening 1-hour Yin yoga restorative class at sunset, where we relax into the poses and hold them longer, with a deeper stretch and longer relaxation – the perfect way to end the day before dinner.
Our classes are suitable for all levels, and will be held outdoors in a gorgeous setting with views out to sea. Our wonderful yoga teachers have over 20 years of experience and are from high-end studios in London. They will modify yoga classes and poses for beginners, and they’ll challenge the more advanced yogis. So whether you’re new to yoga or looking to develop a deeper practice, you can practice at your own pace.
8:30–10am: Vinyasa flow yoga class
11am–6pm: Free time, beach, town, spa..
6–7pm: Restorative Yin yoga class
Evening: Dinner in town or beach
Accommodation and Food
We stay in seaview rooms at beautiful 5* beachfront hotels, carefully chosen for their location, service and beauty. These are not ‘yoga retreat centers’, but rather high-end accommodation offering all the service you would expect from a 5* hotel. Lovely rooms, relaxing pool areas, wonderful spas and restaurants.
We love delicious fresh food! You’ll enjoy a full buffet breakfast after morning yoga class with all sorts of yummy things – omelettes, yoghurt, fresh juices, cereals, fruits and veggies, cheeses and cold cuts, pancakes and breads, and a gluten-free section. We’ll also plan a group dinner at a different restaurant each evening and will offer our recommendations – we know the best! No rules on food and you can enjoy wine with meals.
Activities and Excursions
There is so much to see and do in each location, but there will also be plenty of time to relax at the pool or private beach. You can splurge on spa treatments, take a boat trip, go horseback riding, stroll around charming towns and discover many gorgeous beaches. We know the places well and we’ll offer up ideas and excursions, and we’ll be happy to show you around. But everything is of course optional.
We’ve planned several yoga retreats in the following gorgeous locations:
May and October are warm and sunny in Crete – the perfect time to visit this wonderful Greek island. We’ll stay at an adults-only luxury hotel on the beach just a few minutes from lovely Chania, the prettiest town in Crete. Yoga twice a day by the sea, delicious meals, and plenty of time to relax on the beach. Details on the Crete Yoga Retreat website.
Mykonos is beautiful and stylish, with its gorgeous beaches and picture-perfect town, art galleries, boutique shops and wonderful sunsets. It offers the best of both worlds – quiet time to recharge and plenty of entertainment if you get a bit restless. And our 5* hotel is fantastic! Details on the Mykonos Yoga Retreat website.
Laid-back Menorca is a hidden gem. Lots of sunshine, bright blue skies, warm summer weather, and a luxury hotel located on the island’s most beautiful beach. Unspoiled and low-key, Menorca is the perfect summer escape – charming towns, boat trips to secluded beaches, Spanish tapas and wine, and plenty of time to unwind. Details on the Menorca Yoga Retreat website.
Sicily is the perfect place to enjoy the simple pleasures in life – fresh local food, a leisurely stroll in town, bike rides along the coast, culture and history, white sandy beaches and a very gentle pace. We’ll practice yoga on our terrace with views out to sea, pamper ourselves at a 5* hotel, and enjoy the true Italian way of life. Details on the Sicily Yoga Retreat website.
