Experience alternative holidays in the beautiful island of Kefalonia. Your stay in a quiet and peaceful village will give you the perfect chance to relax in total tranquility. Get the chance to practice yoga with an experienced yoga teacher, while also doing some island activities. You will have plenty of leisure time to explore the beautiful island or just relax on the beach and enjoy the sunshine. Enjoy the sun, unspoiled beaches, and meet new people with spectacular sea views in Kefalonia.
During the retreat, you will be staying at Kefalonian Retreat. The retreat center is a modern farmhouse surrounded by a 40-acre olive grove with beautiful trees and flowers. In the farm, you can find rabbits, goats, sheep, hens, hedgehogs, cats, and a friendly dog named Fivos that's always willing to welcome the guests.
In the morning, you will wake up to the sounds of birds. Behind the house stretches the highest mountain of the island, Mount-Ainos which is well known for its unique fir trees.
The farmhouse has five en-suite comfortable rooms. All rooms are twin occupancy. They have a small fully-equipped kitchen, fridge, bathroom, air condition, internet access, and a balcony. All balconies overlook the vastness of the Ionian Sea and the island of Zante. During the sunset, you can experience the grandeur of nature and gaze at the fishing boats. For those who bring their own cars, the retreat place is facilitated with free parking.
This retreat is suitable for all levels. Yoga classes will take place daily in the morning and evening at a farm under the olive trees in the historical threshing floor of the great grandfather who used it to separate grain from the chaff.
The morning classes will include Sun Salutation sequences, breathing practices and meditation, physically and mentally preparing you for the day ahead. Each class will have its own theme which may include focusing on a particular muscle group, developing patience in your practice or exploring your physical or mental limitations.
The classes will be Hatha based, therefore emphasis will be placed on breath work, alignment, and subtle energy work. No matter what level the practitioner is at, there will be space and time in the classes for everyone to discover new possibilities in their yoga practice during this week and assistance will be given when needed.
Yoga is a journey without an end goal or destination, therefore, they invite you to come with an open heart and mind and practice with patience, compassion and joie de vivre! Some of the classes will include soothing music to support the flow and rhythm of the class and equipment such as blocks and straps will also be provided.
The evening classes will vary daily and they will work on specific themes as in the mornings, helping to give you the focus in your practice. It will be less dynamic and will be taught at a slower pace. In these classes, the is aim to let go of the need to strive for something. Instead, you surrender into the unknown.
Slowing the yoga practice right down can reveal very interesting and surprising things to you, therefore it is worthwhile and will act as a counterpoint to the more dynamic Yang postures from the morning classes.
So these workshops will be more Yin and Restorative, supporting and nourishing your nervous systems and internal organs as well as releasing deep knots and blockages in the body. Use of props will be necessary and will assist you in the longer held poses.
These sessions will usually end with a lovely long savasana (lying down) pose where deep regeneration of the body’s organs, cells, and muscles takes place. Some of these evening classes will also include guided meditation and Nidra yoga.
The retreat will take place in a beautiful and peaceful area of Kefalonia, the largest island of the Ionian Sea in western Greece.
This is a self-catering yoga retreat. Your fridge will be stocked with delicious local produce and everything you need for a tasty brunch or breakfast following your morning yoga session.
