    An experience so unique that difficult to describe in words.

    PROS Pros: Run by people that genuinely care about their guests. Breathtaking location that makes the morning yoga practice mystical and energizing. The yoga instructor, Athina Vakali is a charming and inspiring woman that can change the way you see the world!

    Organizer response: Thank you so much for coming and for your lovely words Kelly! It was a true pleasure to have you here, and i hope we will meet again one day :) Love from Kath and Elias

    "The yoga retreat at Kathy's place was amazing. I discovered Forrest Yoga with Thuli Whitehouse who is a great teacher, very pedagogic and empathic and also a very nice and caring person. Kathy's place is definitely worth visiting: very peaceful, wonderful nature, quiet, fabulous views on the sea, great food and super warm atmosphere. Next to the yoga practice Kathy proposes excursions that allow to discover nice beaches and villages on Karpathos; definitely a "plus" to the yoga retreat. I am fully satisfied with my week of yoga in Karpathos. "

    "I had a magically healing time at Kathys Island Yoga Retreat. The entire place is imbued with a special energy due to its location between the Carpathian mountains and the stunning Aegean, and to the people who run the place. The accommodations were extremely comfortable, updated, clean, and decorated with simple elegance. The food was similarly spot-on: healthy, plentiful and delicious. Every need was taken care of, and all credit goes to Kathy and the exceedingly kind and professional house and kitchen staff. Apart from the twice daily yoga sessions at the oceanfront yoga platform (you can see the sun rise and set, and, in the morning, hear the mountain goats bleating and the cockerel crowing while you are doing the asanas), there are wonderful excursions to gorgeous nearby beaches and the historic mountain village of Olympos. Plus, we had 2 divine massage sessions (Thai, deep tissue etc.) under the majestic pine trees. There was much laughter, a lot of sharing, and also numerous opportunities to be by ones self should that be preferred. All in all, it was everything a retreat should be."

    "Kathy's Island Retreat is heaven on earth! The place is nestled between rocky mountains and blue sea, with astounding views and a peaceful environment. Perfect for a getaway from your usual busy and stressful life. The food was excellent, the rooms were very nice and clean, the staff was extremely warm and attentive, and Kathy is an amazing host. I have made friends for life in this retreat and I would heartily recommend it for people looking for something different, away from big hotels, luxury, noise, and tourists; just you, nature, yoga, and warm people around you. The perfect yoga retreat!"

    "This retreat far exceeded my expectations. Expertly run by the wonderful Kathy, she has planned everything down to the finest detail so you don't have to think about a thing. The result is a deeply personal, fun, and unique experience. The yoga was great; the rooms simple, clean, and all with sea views; the food was endlessly delicious and healthy; and the program both relaxed and interesting. There are options to be carried off to delightful beaches, villages, and restaurants each day; stay at the retreat center and chill in a hammock; read a book or go for a walk or to a beach locally; or even buy a massage from an expert local therapist! Faultless to a tee. Each retreat has a different teacher and yoga theme so there's something for everyone, but this is definitely a time to relax and recoup as well as practice yoga and learn something new."

    "I have had a great week with sun and swimming, lovely yoga sessions and a lot of tasty, healthy food. The place is situated in a beautiful area between Finiki and Lefkos, only a few hundred meters from the ocean. Here you find peace without the noise from busy cities. It was an amazing experience to fall asleep to the sound of the waves and the ocean. I think the program for the week was really well organized. We had two yoga sessions a day with an amazing yoga teacher, Nina Heiberg. She is an inspiring and down to earth teacher. I feel that we all got a lot out of the yoga regardless of our previous experience. The SUP yoga was great fun!We had a good mix of activities and excursions. We visited beautiful beaches and had nice lunches at the restaurants. Kathys Island Retreat was a lovely place and the service was professional and personal. The food they served was health focused, ecological vegetables from their own garden, a lot of vegetarian food and good variation. The guest rooms are airy and nice with a balcony with amazing sea view - the beds were very good! I came home as a new and better person! I will for sure be back!"
