How do we describe our yoga holidays? These are some of the words that come to mind: great yoga teachers, sunshine, delicious food, good company, time to relax, swimming, massage, healthy eating, walks along the coast, dinner by the harbourside.
There are two classes per day (with a day off to relax). For the very keen there is the opportunity to take part in some optional meditation classes and maybe even a local walk. You may attend as many or as few classes as you like – the emphasis is on improvement through enjoyment.
Like all our holidays, you will enjoy great vegetarian food. A hearty and healthy Brunch and two evening meals are included. You will also have a chance to enjoy the beautiful crystal clear sea, local walks or just relax at the centre.
…and here are some of the things are guests have said:
“In a world where there is constant pressure to perform, to compete, to rush, to cram, it is almost a shock to discover somewhere to completely relax, and not only slow down but stop, and consequently gain so much. Set in the beautiful hillside above Agios Nikolaos is the Spirit of Life. A fully equipped yoga studio with wonderful sea views, and sunsets, fantastic freshly cooked food and inspirational teaching. Jonathan Cooksey, one of the guest teachers, is in a league of his own.”
Kate Davies. Neck & Spinal rehab specialist & personal trainer.
“ Jonathan’s relaxed and humorous but wise yoga teaching resulted in my feeling surprisingly stronger, fitter and more supple by the end of the week. Surprising because it was gentle and seemingly effortless yet quite profound. This mind and body tonic coupled with Kerry and Wendy’s wonderful hospitality and great food make a Spirit of Life yoga holiday deeply restful. I came back home feeling refreshed, invigorated and ready to face the world.”
“I would like to say ‘Thank you’ for such a fantastic yoga holiday. It was better than I had imagined and the area was so beautiful we both fell in love with it. What made it so special was the personal attention and kindness showed by you and of course Kerry’s cooking”. P. & A.
The classes are suitable for both the experienced practitioner and beginner, the student being given adjustments relevant to their experience. The yoga teachers are experienced and qualified and come from various Hatha traditions such as Iyengar and yin yoga as well as more dynamic flow styles.
There is a £200 supplement for single accommodation. So why not bring a friend.
The cost for a non-participating partner sharing on our yoga weeks is £350.
