22 – 29 June 2019 | Helena Wilton | Revitalise your Body and Soul

22 – 29 June 2019 | Helena Wilton | Revitalise your Body and Soul

This is an opportunity to revitalise your body and soul with yoga, healthy food, nature and relaxation on the Island of Ithaca –. Come alone or with your friends, mum, sister – we will be a mixed bunch of all ages and all are welcome.

The yoga style will be predominantly vinyasa but incorporating various other pieces I’ve learnt along the way too (Ashtanga, Yin, Hatha, Rocket) – whether you have never done yoga before or an experienced yogi, there will be something for everyone. My goal is to ensure that whatever experience and energy you arrive with, you leave from the mat with the energy, mindset and headspace you need to become the best version of yourself.

What to expect yoga-wise? Feel energised each morning in creative and dynamic yang sessions. For the evenings, we will switch to restorative yin with a focus on relaxation, breathing techniques and deep stretching of our main muscle groups. Between sessions, attend daily workshops (see timetable for more info).

There is lots to explore on the island  – from visiting local villages to boat trips to kayaking to beach hopping to guided hikes to simply chilling on the beautiful beach with a book (and possibly margarita) in hand! .

Following on from the day of sun, fun and community, dine on healthy, balanced and nutritious meals on the veranda, with the distant hills of Kefalonia as your canvas and a gorgeous bed to snooze the night away in. Leave feeling rejuvenated, energised and with clarity of mind.
