With a background in Ashtanga, training in Vinyasa Flow and Yin yoga, and an aversion to taking life too seriously, Kate shares playful, dynamic, breath-led sequencing with a focus on mindful alignment.

She has been teaching for the past 6,5 years.

  • Bridget Finke

    Bridget began practicing yoga in 2012 & she was initially drawn to the physical aspect of the practice. After doing her training in India & Indonesia, becoming a 500hr certified teacher, her knowledge of yoga deepened. When things in life cloud her vision, the breath and movement of yoga can bring her back to clarity, and that's why she admires teaching others. Emphasizing the harmony between mind & body is wonderful and rewarding to share. Her highest intention is to create a loving, healing space where people have the freedom to move intuitively & begin to deeply listen to their unique song.

  • Lauren Tai

    Lauren fell into yoga after getting injured through high impact sports and fell in love with it. Lauren loves the physical aspect of yoga, the challenge and the movement, but more importantly the yoga philosophy and meditative side to yoga which has really impacted her life both on and off the mat. Lauren’s classes are usually a strong and dynamic flow with an emphasis on finding the softness in the strength and the calm amongst the chaos. She likes working with creative sequencing, to move the body in different ways, encouraging people to feel into their bodies and refine their practice.

  • Angie Pollacchi

    Angie strongly believes in working with your body, rather than against it. Everybody's body is different and she encourages you to explore, celebrate and focus on your yoga practice, no one else’s!

Offering a beautiful yet tranquil alternative to the bustling, cosmopolitan beach of Acharavi, Almyros is a peaceful paradise escape, perfect for those looking to take a relaxing break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Almyros is located in the Corfu Island, Greece.

In addition to its picturesque setting, relaxed way of life and delectable food, the Greek island of Corfu is also steeped in cultural history. The origins of Corfu can be traced back as far as Greek mythology. The island's Greek name, Kerkyra, is related to two powerful water symbols; Poseidon, God of the sea, and Asopos, a prominent Greek river.

According to the myth, the God of the sea Poseidon fell in love with the beautiful nymph Korkyra and took her to this stunning but unnamed island. In marital bliss, Poseidon named the island Korkyra after his wife. This name gradually evolved throughout time to the Greek name of Kerkyra, which the island retains to this day.

In addition to Greek mythology, the island's history is also full of battles and conquests. With castles enclosing the islands capital Corfu town, it has been officially declared a Kastropolis, or castle city by the Greek government.

A picturesque landscape

With its rich, mountainous landscape, Corfu offers a beautiful view to its visitors. The Northern area of the island has preserved its natural and architectural environment, making it popular with visitors and locals alike.

Dominated by mountains, the island has a never ending expanse of rolling hills and blossoming trees, bursting with lush vegetation. Coastal areas offer tranquil white sandy beaches, while the shimmering blue sea provides a perfect backdrop to the green Corfiot countryside.

    A perfect start!

    CONS Cons: Nothing really relevant to point out

    PROS Pros: This was my first yoga experience and retreat and I think it would be hard to have gotten better. The location is beautiful with a long beach with great views of Albania valleys. The house is beautiful kept and my bedroom (cronos) had a great sea view. The yogis were a great fun and we spent great time together. And of course, the host Alice, who is always caring for the group well being and with such great and fun personality makes you feel welcome right away.

    PROS Pros: Hara and Alice gave me such a nice holiday feeling, they really live their just relax vision on the yoga holiday.

    Review by Ksenia Bazarevich from France

    Relax and listen to your body

    CONS Cons: Consider changing lighting in rooms, or just the light bulbs in the lamps, its more cosy when they give off be a little softer lighting.

    PROS Pros: The location of the villa is superb! whether you just want to hang out on the beach, that is just steps away, or tour the island- everything is possible. The sea is amazingly blue. Yoga lessons happen either in the garden, either on a deck by the sea, both options are fabulous. Acharavi is just a 20 minute walk by the shore. There are good bikes you can take any time. 2 hammocks, where you can chill, read, or doze off. This week was exactly what I needed and wanted. Alice and Hara are there for you if you nedd to organise something, or just give tips on what to do and where to go. I watched the sunset in sunset restaurant- stunning view, walking up there makes it even more deserved.

    CONS Cons: It should be great if more activities were proposed for the free time (through a guidebook or information displayed in the house).

    PROS Pros: Alice and Hara were very attentive to what we wanted and very available. They really paid attention to their clients. The wonderful house on the beach. My room was really nice with a terrace and always clean thanks to Yulla who was very nice.

    Review by Rachel Stephens from Great Britain

    Perfect holiday away from it all

    CONS Cons: It was all good, no negatives

    PROS Pros: This was my first Yoga retreat experience and I didn't really know what to expect and was nervous but it went beyond all that I was hoping it would be (which was simply that I would be able to relax, recharge, have some space) I got so much more out of it. I was immediately put at ease by the wonderful hosts, met some truly lovely people in our group, enjoyed the big wide sea views and the feeling of space and calm, the yoga by Flavia was excellent, she is a brilliant, caring and patient teacher, the food was delicious, the villa is peaceful and the gardens lovely. Activity wise, there are different options and I loved that we had the use of bikes to explore. I would highly recommend and I will be considering their new venture in Morocco.

    Review by Zara Curtis from Ireland

    PROS Pros: I really enjoyed my week in the Just Relax villa in Corfu. It's location, just across the road from the beach, was fabulous and so much more impressive than it had seemed online before I went. Its proximity to the beach meant that one of the yoga shalas was right beside the sea which made for a spectacular view and a calming atmosphere during yoga class. Alice & Hara have cultivated a very chilled out vibe which really makes the week a calm and lovely one where you can't help but 'Just Relax'.....

    PROS Pros: This was my first yoga retreat and it was just perfect. For meit was the perfect combination of yoga, holiday and meeting new people. Hara and Alice are amazing hosts and made me feel at home from the moment I entered the door. Voula, the housekeeper was always friendly and did a great job. The food is always fresh and good. We had a sunset dinner on the terrace every night. I met so many lovely people on this retreat, I really didn't expect this when I booked it I had the Aphrodite room and shared my bathroom with two other girls, which was not a problem at all. The room was comfortable and quiet. The yoga classes (either on the beach or in the Shala) were inspiring, I learned so much! Thank you for everything

    Review by Emily Tay from Singapore

    a yoga retreat that far exceeded expectations.

    PROS Pros: Alice and Hara do an excellent job of making you feel so at home and part of a family during the week. The villa is right on the beach - couldn't have asked for a more picturesque and secluded part of the island. Special sunsets every night and a view of Albania! The food was delicious and healthy, catering to all dietary requirements. I would definitely do another yoga retreat with Just Relax.

    Want to relax and do yoga this is the place !

    CONS Cons: Nothing. It was honestly perfect!! I did find that 7am yoga was early but given how quick the day heats up it was the best time and a great way to start the day early.

    PROS Pros: Hara & Alice are nice, friendly & welcoming. It was wonderful to stay at Just Relax. They are really chill. The organisation is great and they take care of everything. The food is amazing. I didn't know what to expect but this was just so yummy! The villa is only seconds away by foot to the beach. It is in quiet location. Most beautiful sunsets. Yoga practice directly at the beach facing the sea and in the evening behind villa on platform in a nice quiet area. The villa is clean, the rooms are perfect, balcony facing the sea. I was in room "Ares" (shared twin room with balcony) awesome. I would definitely recommend. They organised taxi pick up from Airport (60 euros) but less if more passengers (they try to coordinate the guests who arrive to share a taxi. There's bikes at the villa so you can come and go as you please. Acharavi is only about 20 minutes by foot from the beach. It is as described .. You are there to relax so you do as you please. Morning and evening yoga are offered and you have the day to stay at the beach, go bike to town, read in the garden, take naps, relax in the hammock... etc. I met such amazing people during my stay. It was such a great experience. Willy welcome massage was just what I needed. I then booked another one during the week. A must :) The day off is nice as you chose to do as you please. I rented a car and went around the island - was great. There's also excursions offered in town so you can book from there.

    A week in paradise

    PROS Pros: Alice and Hara, our hosts, were absolutely amazing. They helped us with everything, planned great activities, and made us feel instantly at home. Yvonne, our yoga teacher, was wonderful. She was extremely knowledgeable and patient, and she helped us understand the practice better. It was a great week!

    Just relaxJus

    CONS Cons: I didn't find any negatives and I am sure that if I did, the staff would have sorted it out quickly. I do regret that I did not take my driver's license to hire a car/quad bike but the bicycles helped a lot to get to town.

    PROS Pros: I had a wonderful time at Just Relax: the organizers/staff (Alice, Hara and Vula) were fantastic and really catered to all our whims, the food was delicious, the house was great with enough spaces to meet with others or be on your own and the proximity to the beach was a real plus. The yoga sessions on the deck facing the sea and on the peninsula in the middle of the sea were new experiences for me and quite memorable. Kate the yoga teacher was a real inspiration. I would love to join them again in future.

    Review by Melanie Nydegger from Switzerland

    CONS Cons: That the week was over so fast! :-)

    PROS Pros: I totally enjoyed my yoga vacation on Corfu island from the first minute to the last. It was the perfect combination of yoga, excursions to beautiful spots and plenty of time to soak up the sun on the beach and float in the sea. And the food was just amazing, usually containing home-grown veggies from Hara's garden and just healthy and delicious. The villa is beautiful and the location couldn't be better: laid back and close to a beautiful calm beach, but still there are a cute beach bar and a nice tavern with a beautiful garden nearby, where you can enjoy some delicious greek food. The yoga classes with Diane were excellent and she took good care of us, corrected our positions and made sure we were ok with the heat. My body feels healthy and strong after this week and I still wear a big smile on my face :-) definitely want to come back and can recommend this retreat to anyone looking to just relaxxx!!!

    Great yoga retreat/beach holidays in Corfu

    CONS Cons: Nothing I did not like - I had a great week there :)

    PROS Pros: I loved the location, the hosts, the yoga teacher, the new friends I made there, the villa, the terraces, the yoga classes in the garden and by the sea. It was my first yoga retreat experience - and it has definitely set the bar very high :) Would have loved to stay a week longer if my job had allowed!

    Totally Relaxed at Just Relax

    CONS Cons: I can't think of any negatives.

    PROS Pros: The villa was spotlessly clean in a great location. There was a place to do yoga in the garden, and a deck right on the beach for evening yoga. Meals were simple but excellent with local fresh ingredients. Alice and Hara were very kind, friendly and helpful host. Rosana was a great yoga teacher, who had planned each session well, was kind and encouraging, and a lot of fun.

    The perfect getaway!!

    PROS Pros: It was my very first retreat and since the beginning, the communication with Alice was great. She arranged taxis so that we could arrive together and together with Hara, they welcomed us with the biggest hug and smile :D everything was great, the food (ESPECIALLY THE FOOD!!), the location (right in front of the sea), a small walk to the nearest village of Acharavi and the amazing yoga classes in the morning and in the evening. It is the perfect getaway to a hectic life, to surround yourself with lovely people and positive energy. Thanks for everything Hara and Alice!

    "When you walk through the door you are greeted with a hug. You will hear Alice and Hara saying 'Welcome Home'. That's what Just Relax is...it is home."

    ""

    "The house and rooms are beautiful and always well kept. I was particularly impressed with the 'Ares Room'. Though the bed was quite firm, I found relaxation in the large bathtub and on the serene balcony. "

    "The areas for yoga are breathtaking: a beach platform 20 meters from the ocean and garden pagoda facing the mountains. "

    "The food was delicious, healthy and always something different. "

    "The welcome massage with Willie will have you melting into a puddle. "

    "We spent our day off hiking through olive fields and a Stone (ghost) Village."

    "I would absolutely recommend this yoga retreat to anyone looking to relax and practice yoga."

    "I'd highly recommend this place - the atmosphere, Alice's and Hara's friendliness and helpfulness are outstanding and I felt home almost before arriving there as I felt so looked after already when booking. The villa faces the sea and you'll be enjoying yoga sessions at the beach as well as great food - I couldn't have found anything more suitable for my needs. The no restriction policy and "do your own thing" - approach adds a great feeling of freedom and own choice (as well regarding food - non dairy - dairy, caffeine - no caffeine). It is all up to yourself to choose, they offer lots of options - only you won't find any meat, which can be easily replaced with other protein foods to be found in the fridge. Our Yoga instructor Jocie Cox was very creative and guided us securely through beautiful Vinyasa sessions with a lot of knowledge - furthermore she offered 30 minutes of meditation at the beach every morning before the morning sessions which hooked me on daily meditation practice on my own after that. All in all I couldn't recommend the retreat higher and I'd definitely go back! One thing to mention - I'd check on the website which teacher /yoga style is booked for the week - to make sure you get the most out of it. Having most amazing memories and met people whom I'd call friends now! Happy booking!"

    "I have to say that I had a GREAT time at the Just Relax yoga vacation. Alice and Hara made us feel welcome and comfortable right from the start. It was my first time going to a yoga retreat, and going to Corfu - both surpassed my expectations.The villa we stayed in was lovely,the yoga instruction was different than what I had done in the States, but was a great workout and challenged me daily. The food was amazing and all vegetarian and plentiful. And I cannot say enough about the beach and surroundings - gorgeous!As an added benefit, we were offered a welcome massage by Willi Dimmer - which was awesome after a day of travel. We were able to book more massages for later on in the week, and we all did.I am looking forward to doing this again in the near future."

    "This was my first yoga retreat. I will certainly be doing more and the bar has been set very high for my next one. Alice and Hara are delightful creatures, and the retreat they have set up is a reflection of what happy, warm and friendly ladies they are. Nothing was too much trouble for the girls, they arranged a taxi to meet all those arriving together, arranged a very reasonable rental car for our day off and were always on hand if we needed anything. The house is kept spotless and I really enjoyed both of the yoga spaces. They house is huge, ample space to socialise or chill out alone. I stayed in the dorm room of 4, and even with 10 people ( 12 including our hosts who are there a lot) it never once felt crowded. You can lounge in the yard or the beach is just across the road. Zara our yoga instructor was fabulous and when we weren't practising yoga was very much one of the gang. Hara is Greek and prepares lovely Mediterranean style food for the brunch which was a highlight of every day. She makes a mean tatziki ;) There is a beach bar across the road, a small grocery and Tavernas in walking distance and the town of Acharavi is a short cycle away and has pharmacy/supermarket everything that you need. If you are undecided as to whether to book a week at Just Relax I can tell you emphatically to DO IT!!!!!"

You have the beach all to yourself to enjoy, bikes to get to town, and a covered pergola or sea view for yoga practice. I've made friends i will meet again and improved my yoga practice so much in just one week with the great coaching of Mathieu Boldron. Thanks Hara and Alice you are fantastic hosts, we had a blast - I will be back!"

    "The retreat at Just Yoga Relax in Corfu started even before I arrived. The attention and quick response of emails, organization of taxis, etc was incredibly helpful. The location is like paradise, could walk barefoot from the beautiful house to the sand on the beach in front. The food and the house were more than one could expect, really, every little detail was taken care of. Sheets and towels were changed every two days and meals were simply delicious always with local products. The yoga classes were long and pushing and I was able to develop my strength, my knowledge about yoga and my practice in general so much in just a week. The teacher was always helpful and giving, even during break times. The day off we were also taken care of and took on a boat trip around north of the island to beautiful beaches. I can't stress enough how much joy, peace and good energy was created among every one of the attendants, the teacher and owners of the retreat. I will definitely do this again. This has been one of the best experiences in my life. I can only say thank you. Namaste. "

    "This was my first solo vacation and everything went smoothly thanks to Hara and Alice. They replied instantly to my inquiry, and I felt very safe and taken care of before I arrived. They was there to welcome me when I arrived 1 am in the morning. The whole experience was great from the start to the end. The yoga places was amazing. One was at the ocean with great view and sounds from the waves. The other place was in the garden with shadow and mountain view, so it was not too hot to do yoga in the evening. The food was also very good, I never went hungry. Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, and great new tastes. Also a very pretty island worth exploring on your day off. Over all, a very pleasant experience with wonderful people. "

    "Alice and Hara are amazing! They are both so welcoming and will happily have a chat or just give advise on the best places or things to do around Corfu."

    "The House and its location are fantastic. You either do yoga sessions out the back of the house facing the beautiful mountains of Corfu or out the front just off the beach facing the Ionian Sea and Albania, both views are truly breathtaking."

    "Even as a beginner, I found everyone so friendly that it helped me relax and really enjoy the yoga sessions."

    "I had a wonderful, zen week at Just Relax Yoga Holidays in Corfu. The setting is beautiful - a villa with garden, terraces, hammock and is perfectly located across the street from the beach. In addition to the twice daily yoga and meditation, we had a trip to a peninsula by hike and boat with a sunset dinner overlooking the water, and an optional boat trip to Corfu Town. The meals were hearty Greek vegetarian with many delicious choices. Alice and Hara helped to arrange anything we needed and there were bikes available to use. Our group shared many laughs in the short week and we got to know each other. It was a wonderful experience! I highly recommend it."

    "The Just Relax yoga holiday villa is in a great location, a <100m walk to a quiet and pretty beach which looks over the Albanian mountains. The morning yoga session was done on wooden decking on the beach overlooking the sea which was really nice. The evening yoga session was done on wooden decking in the garden in the shade. We did one evening yoga session on a beautiful rocky peninsula surround by the sea. The rooms are relatively simple but have everything you need. Breakfast and lunch were both 'help yourself' so you could eat whenever you wanted - breakfast was fruit and greek yoghurt, lunch was different dishes from local restaurants - all very good. Alice and Hara were on hand to help out with any questions you have and have a 'no problem' attitude to everything which keeps everyone focused on relaxing! Thank you so much ladies for a wonderful week."
