8 Days Pilates and Yoga Vacation in Greece

Hotel Pasiphae, Kalloni 811 07, Lesbos, Greece

Pilates, Yoga & Hiking on Lesbos in Greece

Enjoy Pilates and yoga on a beautiful and quiet location. The best place to relax because it's not crowded with tourists. We breathe in the fresh air when doing our yoga class at the warm sandy beach. Don't stay away because of the refugees on the other side of the island, 1.5-hour drive if you want to support them.

We are here because the locals need us. Lesbos has so much to offer, nature is unique, big forests where you can do trackings also during summertime. Your Hotel Pasiphae has a beautiful garden full of roses and palm trees where you can stretch your body and mind. The accommodation is comfortable, fully air-conditioned and also internet is available.

Don't worry about touching your toes, standing on your head or even on your feet. That is what this is all about, not worrying. Just be there, breath and enjoy the experience. Get ready to recharge your batteries and relax or, maybe, sweat a lot. It's all up to yourself. A yoga mat is a place where you don't need to worry about appearance, about who's looking at you or if you're doing something wrong.

It's a safe and peaceful place where you are surrounded by people searching for the same experience. And on top of that, Lesbos is an island for birdwatchers, forests, lakes with flamengos and volcanic hills. Old paths are leading to the monastery, still in use, a small village with gardens, hidden in the mountains. There are 25 circular walks, with road signs. Stop at the hot water springs, where your skin can heal and where you feel completely relaxed.
