It is fully detached so peace and quiet are guaranteed, making it the ideal location for a retreat with its stunning views of the surrounding countryside. The farmhouse has an outdoor pool with indoor and outdoor spaces for your yoga practise.

Program

This is an experience that will relax, revive and restore you. After the great success of Sunra Yoga's first three seasons, Sunra is delighted to offer retreats for the fourth year in this stunning location. A jewel in the Mediterranean with its wonderful weather, stunning scenery, and pristine beaches, steeped in history and as yet quite unspoiled, we invite you to come, relax, and enjoy the beautiful and unique island of Gozo. This is a great opportunity to deepen your practice and for beginners to jump in at the deep end.

Although this retreat includes meditation sessions, it focuses mainly on yoga practice. There will be two daily one and a half hour classes per day based on the Sivananda system. Both will include asanas, pranayama, and meditation.

All levels can be catered for and classes are tailored to suit each student individually. In your free time, you can just chill by the pool and relax, wander around the village or take a sightseeing tour around the island. Scuba diving and snorkeling trips are also available as well as a boat trip around Camino Island. All other activities are not included and you will be able to arrange them at your leisure.

Things to do (optional)

In each week there will be one free day giving you plenty of time to travel around the island sightseeing as well as between morning and evening classes. Public transport is very cheap and easy to use. There is a flat rate of 2 EUR for any bus journey or you can purchase a 7-day Explore card for 21 EUR which you can use to go to all the sites of interest in any part of Malta and Gozo. You can hop on or off anytime, as many times as you want, at any time. This card is valid for travel on day services and night services. You can also hire cars from 15 EUR per day, also bicycles and scooters locally, please ensure you bring your license!

There are two sandy beaches on the island. Ramla Bay, which is the largest of the two, offers sunbeds, umbrellas & a cafeteria & San Blas, which is small with a very steep walk from the road, but worth the trek! There is a jeep service available for €3 each way if you prefer to take it easy. There are also sun beds, umbrellas & a cafeteria here.

The bus stop is a 5 minute walk from the farmhouse & from there you can take a 15 minute bus ride from Victoria & then another bus on to both beaches. Please note from Ghasri to Victoria the buses run once per hour. There is a flat rate of €2 for any bus journey, however, the ticket lasts for two hours, so you can use it on any bus route. You can also hire cars, bicycles & scooters locally, please ensure you bring your license!

Victoria, the capital of Gozo, is buzzy & lively, full of shops, restaurants & cafes where you can sit outside & watch the world go by. You can also visit Gran Castello, a citadel in an area of Victoria which has been inhabited since the Bronze Age. The Cittadella is a combination of a medieval castle and an early modern gunpowder fortress, with its northern walls retaining a largely medieval form and its southern walls dating back to a 17th-century reconstruction.

Ġgantija in Xaghra is a megolithic temple, the oldest known ruins in the world, even older than the Pyramids! Coach parties stop here but if you wait for them to pass through it is much easier to get a sense of the scale of the temples and the effort it must have taken to construct then so long ago. There is some information given out and tickets for here also get you into the Ta Kola windmill and can be used once for each attraction over a couple of weeks so you don't need to visit them both on the same day.

Every village in Gozo has a quaint square in its centre with a church. These squares are generally surrounded by bars and restaurants. The churches are stunning and always worth a visit.
