There are six luxury double bedrooms in the main house and three Mongolian eco yurts that are staggered up between rocks, forestry, and winding walkways. All bedrooms are en-suite and air-conditioned with mosquito nets, coco-mat mattresses, and wood paneled ceilings. The three Mongolian yurts are light and airy inside, sleeping between one to four people and sharing an outdoor bathroom. Pathways and steps provide access to the yurt platforms. Yoga spaces include one indoor shala and two outdoor spaces. There is also plenty of lounge and sunbathe nooks and crannies for the ultimate chill time.

This retreat will take place at Itha108, a Greek island retreat set in a place of outstanding natural beauty, overlooking the sea and eastern coastline of neighbouring Kefalonia. Nestled in an elevated wilderness of olive trees and exposed rock, its natural beauty speaks for itself. An emphasis on indoor-outdoor living ensures full use of the land and its treasures that include sweeping and hidden beaches. The nearest airport is Kefalonia International Airport (EFL). It is then a ferry boat ride away from the port town of Sami to Ithaca.

Claire Hawkins

Claire had her first yoga class over 12 years ago and she remembers walking away feeling so calm and serene. At that time, she felt she could tackle anything life threw at her. She also vividly remembers hoping no one would speak to her for at least a few hours as she didn’t want the blissful spell to break. From then on, her love for yoga has grown as has the strength and flexibility it has given her. But more than this, yoga has helped her find patience, presence, acceptance, peace, and a huge appreciation of her breath and its ability to settle her emotions and mind. She can now honestly say that due to yoga, she walks through life with a very different set of principles and from a very different space than she once did.

Having made the decision to teach, Claire was lucky enough to complete her 200-hour Yoga Alliance teacher training qualification with Katy Appleton, who has been a huge influence on both her own yoga practice and on her teaching. She then furthered her training under the hugely inspiring Paul Grilley, the founder of Yin yoga, who has not only given her the skills as a Yin yoga teacher but has also vastly expanded her knowledge on the wonders and complexities of the human anatomy. She has gone on more recently to broaden her learning under other phenomenal teachers such as Marc Holzman and Tara Judelle.

  • Review by Julie

    "Simply put, I love Claire's classes. It's actually hard work but she guides me through the poses and offers different levels to match my abilities. No other form of exercise makes me feel two inches taller or a stone lighter at the end of the session. I leave feeling like I have worked hard and my body gets to feel and enjoy the benefits."

    "Claire's tuition is excellent. She has many strengths that make attending her class a joy, but chief amongst them, I would cite her superb instruction. It's really clear, direct, explicit, and also her total acceptance that effort, process, and attitude are what matters rather than a perfect outcome."

    "As someone completely new to yoga, Claire's classes have been perfect. They are exactly what a beginner requires combining the right balance of learning new things and being pushed to learn more. More than that, thanks to Claire's teaching, yoga is now much more than simple exercise and has become an important part of my life."
