Take some time out for yourself, soak up the sun and get deeper into your yoga practice with me in magical Andalusia, this will be my fourth year at Centro Santillan .

There will be twice daily yoga sessions in the spacious state-of-the-art yoga studio; meditation, mindful movement and flow yoga in the morning and restorative/yin yoga in the afternoon. We will also make use of the Europe’s largest Great Yoga Wall with two additional therapeutic sessions over the course of the week.

Santillán has been named one of the best global yoga retreats by the Times and the Guardian. Set in a tranquil, secluded location, Santillán is a large mediterranean paradise with extensive gardens, a saltwater swimming pool with a spacious sun deck and a variety of hillside walks.

“This week has been invaluable. I’ve learned so much and it’s been such a special opportunity to grow in this compassionate community.”

Yoga Holiday to Greece **2022 now fully booked, 2023 dates coming soon**
9th – 16th July 2022
Vericoco Retreat, Kefalonia
.

The beautiful Vericoco Retreat in Kefalonia, Greece offers us the chance to reconnect with nature; to pause, step back and recharge. Set within olive groves and with spectacular views of majestic Mount Aenos and the Ionian sea, the grounds at Vericoco are spacious enough for you to enjoy plenty of quietude, yet conveniently laid out to provide easy access to yoga shala, 11m pool and outdoor living areas.

A peaceful 10 minute stroll down hill offers you the choice of Vericoco’s two nearest beaches; both with trademark Kefalonian crystal-clear shallow waters. Spartia beach offers the advantage of the local facilities for those who want to grab a drink or snack, and Thermanti has the advantage of being secluded as it is only accessible by foot, making this a rather magical place.

There will be twice daily yoga sessions at the shaded outdoor yoga platform; meditation, mindful movement and flow yoga in the morning and relaxing yin sessions and in the afternoon. We will have Wednesday afternoon off, the perfect opportunity to explore the island a little more or take a boat trip to visit hidden coves along the shoreline.

Kefalonia itself is a lush green island in the Ionian region, famous for its turquoise seas and clean sandy beaches. One of the largest Greek islands, it also boasts the impressive Mount Aenos with thick fir forests as well as underground caves and ample countryside.

There is a variety of accommodation at Vericoco, from top of the range en-suite rooms within the recently built luxurious villa, to shared rooms within smaller beach houses situated very near by. The pricing reflects the different room types. You will eat well with two plentiful vegetarian meals a day – brunch after morning yoga and a delicious dinner every evening. The cuisine at Vericoco is grown locally, freshly prepared and delicious. There are three restaurants nearby and two shops in Spartia village and as all rooms have access to kitchen facilities, you can prepare your own lunch/snacks as you like.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“As a gym user for many years I had tried yoga on occasion and came away thinking yoga was too quiet and slow to be worthwhile .What I have now realised, having come across Ruth’s classes and yoga holidays, is my initial scepticism about yoga and meditation was completely misplaced. If yoga is to become a meaningful part of your life, or if you wish to incorporate it into a wider exercise routine, you have to find a good teacher such as Ruth.  Ruth has both a strong academic knowledge of the subject and many years of practical teaching experience. She also has a strong personal commitment to the practice of yoga and meditation, the understanding of which she is happy to share with her students. I believe this results in a far deeper level of learning for her students and a far more fulfilling practice”   Jane W
