Additional activities are also made available to you, allowing you to shape your yoga retreat into the holiday of a lifetime.
Yoga holidays are run Saturday to Saturday. The first yoga class will be on Saturday evening before the welcome dinner or Sunday morning. For your first night in Corfu, a welcome Greek vegetarian dinner will be organized at the villa. Your daily schedule will depend on the teacher and the month.
Time can change depending on the month.
On Tuesday afternoon, if the weather is good, Just Relax Yoga Holidays will take you by minibus to Cape Drastis, where a boat will guide you to a peninsula for a unique yoga session.
Afterwards, you will also be brought to Seventh Heaven Cafe and Bar for an amazing sunset. Wednesday will be your free day, the opportunity for you to explore the Island of Corfu. On Friday night, your last night, you will share your last moments together around a dinner at the villa.
Please note if the weather is not good for the boat trip on Tuesday, Just Relax Yoga Holidays will try to manage to reschedule it.
This year for safety reasons, we will run smaller retreats with a maximum of 8 guests per week! That’s actually like 1 person per room, except if people are coming together.
There are 2 outdoor spaces to practice yoga (one in the back garden and one on the beach) and 2 outdoor spaces to enjoy your breakfast/dinner. For breakfast and dinner, there will be a buffet and the host will serve you. If you want, the food can be delivered to your room and enjoy it on your balcony!
There is a possibility that we might not be able to do the trip to the peninsula, but if we don't do that, Just Relax Yoga Holidays will arrange another tour to do on that day.
Check-in is anytime after 15.00pm, while check-out is maximum at 10.00 am. This is because the room should be ventilated for 3 hours before the next guest can enter. If you arrive before or leave after that time, you can put your luggage in the garage and enjoy the outdoors until the time is right.

For a long time, she felt that yoga was boring or too slow for her but after attending a yoga retreat 4 years ago, that mindset began to change. Slowly, she started to build the habit of practicing for just 10 minutes per day no matter how she felt and over time this grew into a deep love for the strength and grace both physically and mentally that time on her mat was adding to her life.

Jen encourages each student to consider the purpose behind the posture, and tailors her lessons for your own unique anatomy.

Practicing yoga nidra daily can have profound effects and Jen hopes to share this with you throughout the week.
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 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 island's capital Corfu town, it has been officially declared a Kastropolis, or castle city by the Greek government.
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.
