Yoga Holiday with Sunnah Rose

June 22 - June 29

Yoga holiday with Sunnah Rose in the Mani, one of the most untouched and stunningly beautiful parts of the Greek Mainland. Enjoy a pristine natural environment of mountains, sea and blue skies in which you can relax and unwind as well as learn and practice yoga.

Sunnah Rose has been practicing yoga for many years but became truly inspired during a trip to India.Having trained with many different teachers, she combines her experience to bring a deeply relaxing class intent on releasing the spine alongside a gentle vinyasa (flow) hatha yoga, bringing creativity and dynamism to a practice.

The yoga classes will be held at the Spirit of Life Centre and will start on Sunday morning after your Saturday arrival, and end Friday evening before you leave the next day.

Daily practices will guide you through a variety of styles, including gentle yoga to allow you to journey deeply into the body and a more dynamic Vinyasa yoga to strengthen and dance your way through a class. No experience is necessary and all are welcome, including complete beginners.

There will be a morning and evening session every day, apart from one day off mid-week in which you can go exploring without any pressure. The morning sessions will be followed by a lovely brunch and two evening meals will be included in the price, days to be confirmed. All meals are prepared by Kirakos the owner of spirit of life who ran a successful restaurant in Bristol before moving with his family to the Mani.

Accommodation

The accommodation is comprised of self-catering apartments and shared villas within walking or cycling distance of the studio. Most of the accommodation is based in the beautiful small village of Agios Nikolaos which has a few traditional taverna’s where you can feast on amazing local food and an amazing sea pool known by the locals as ‘Gnospi’.

Things to do

Apart from the yoga, there are many walks to explore the area both in the mountains and along the coast. The nearest swimming point is ‘The Jetty’ also known as Gnospi, which is a 15 minute walk from the studio.   It has a natural swimming platform that drops into beautiful turquoise waters as well as shaded areas for sun worshippers to soak in the rays.

The beach is located beyond the village of Agios Nikolaos which is another 20 minute walk down the mountain. If you are feeling a little more adventurous then a little further down the coast are Stoupa Beach and Kalogroa beach, which are vibrant and cater for the tourists. They are both  sandy and have lovely bars and restaurants where you can enjoy a drink, lunch or dinner. If you don’t feel like walking back up the mountain – a taxi costs around 10/15 Euros.
