Location

Santorini is one of the most dramatic Greek islands for scenery with it’s little white washed towns perched on the sides of steep cliffs overlooking the great volcano and deep blue sea.

We will be waking up with the Greek sun for morning practice in the gentle shade of grape vines, then a leisurely brunch before the day is yours to choose. We seal our day with yoga and meditation under the cooler Greek sun; digesting the day and your practice. As the day closes we will enjoy healthy nourishing food prepared with love by our caring hosts; feeling utterly satisfied.

The Venue

Relaxing Yoga Retreat is held at the stunning Hotel Pelages, set at the bottom of the hillside in this magical volcanic island, just outside the very beautiful village of Oia. The hotel is set amongst vineyards and gardens, providing a beautiful, relaxing setting in which to fully unwind.

The yoga area is 120 sq.meters covered with a sun-proof and water-proof protection tent, in the middle of the property surrounded by palm trees. The flooring is from wooden environment friendly tiles. Yoga mats, blocks, straps, blankets and bolsters are provided. 
  

Food

On this yoga holiday 2 meals are included in the price at the hotel. You can enjoy fresh home grown fruit and vegetables of an amazing quality and taste due to its unique climate and volcanic soil; cherry tomatoes, white aubergines, cucumbers, courgettes, grapes, figs, melons and watermelons. The produce is organic and seasonal, ripened by the beautiful warm Aegean sunshine which makes the cuisine fantastic.  Or enjoy exploring by passing an evening in the beautiful village of Oia and lively Greek local Tavernas.  We also love to go for a wine tasting evening amongst the vines to the sunset and enjoy the unique and spell bounding views of the blue and white churches that make Santorini so special.  We also highly recommend enjoying a day on a yacht cruise around the Caldera coastline so flexibility with evenings meals is key.
