Zakynthos Greek Retreat
at Rodis Studios
June 6-13, 2019 fully booked
September 19 -26, 2019 fully booked
Why a yoga retreat?
What could be better than your usual weekly yoga class when you arrive on the mat, hear the teachers soothing voice and immediately feel like you have come home...? Enjoying all of this on the sunny island of Zakynthos of course.
A yoga retreat takes you on a journey of self discovery. There is more time to explore asana. There is more time to explore pranayama. There is more time to explore the deeper foundations of yoga. There is chance to reset the busy bustle of the mind with a calmer, more peaceful and accepting approach.
What to expect, sustenance and activity
The retreat will be held at Rodis Apartment studios in Bouka Village near Tragaki on the beautiful island of Zante. Zakynthos town is 4.3 miles away. The nearest beach is 200 metres away from the apartments.
Dine on delicious local produce prepared with love. Brunch will consist of granola, yoghurt, fresh fruit and sometimes eggs or pancakes. Expect fresh fish, wholesome salads and plenty of Greek cheese and olives. A glass of wine will be served with dinner and water, herbal tea and coffees are available all day.
You will be offered a daily morning and evening yoga practice in the purpose built shady outdoor yoga shala. Morning practice will set you up for the day with sun salutations and strength building. After brunch you can wander to the beach for an afternoon swim, take a nap in the shade, read a book or explore the island. There is chance to hire kayaks and SUP boards or if you prefer the more creative approach, take a pottery class or make your own pebble art. The evening yoga session will be a slower pace, a calming and nourishing practice to promote sleep.
