First we visit Kathara monastery, the last monastery on Ithaca.
It’s situated at an altitude of 560 meters and from the church steeple the view towards Vathi is spectacular.
The track starts near the monastery and is very rocky with low growth. It climbs to 650 meters and then starts to descent to the mountain village of Anogi. It takes about two hours and the walk is easy.
A local Kafenion offers refreshments. Next to it is a 15th Century church with Byzantine frescoes’ and a Venetian bell tower.
We continue our walk to Kioni a fishing village on a foot path that has been paved with stone slabs. On our way you find a plateau with goat tracks and terraces, passing intriguing ruins, small chapel and ancient trees. Walking time about 3 hours and the difficulty is moderate.

Even the life of a yoga teacher can be frazzled and hectic. We all have stories swimming around in our heads about how we need to be doing more, or better, or even the stress of feeling like we should appear to be doing things effortlessly. We can end up in a state of expending more energy than we are allowing ourselves to receive. As with our computers and gadgets that need a good shut down when things aren’t working we also need to take time to Begin Again. To switch off the system and get a reboot.
This is a retreat that I’m passionate about. I travel around the world and experience many yoga teachers and stressed out professionals who just need time to themselves, with their practices, in good company and allow some unraveling to happen. I created this week just for that. A time to reclaim ourselves, shut out the rest of the world in the absolutely stunning centre that is Itha108, on the gorgeous island of Ithaca. It’s one of my favourite places in the world! Just arriving feels like exhaling a breath you didn’t know you were holding.
What to expect during the week
Each morning will begin with a pranayama and meditation on the beautiful outdoor platform overlooking the sea under the protection of trees. We’ll move onto an asana based movement practice that will be explorative and curious throughout. This is not the time to get better at anything, it is time to continue to arrive in your body, return home and reclaim yourself.
Beautiful brunches on the terrace overlooking the sea will be followed by plenty of free time to go to the beach, on hikes, or relax on the number of stunning terraces throughout the property.
Afternoons we will reconvene for sessions that will change each day and include restorative practices, movement explorations, journalling and sacred dance. We’ll spend evenings enjoying dinner and relaxing with the amazing views, sharing stories and creative play time. One afternoon/evening we’ll spend exploring the other side of the island.
If you’ve been looking to recharge your batteries and spend time in a stunning environment, amongst like minded people then this is the retreat for you. While I’ve aimed it at teachers it is not a training and will be open to anyone who enjoys to work with the yoga practices in the way I present them.
*for a fixed time for the entire group – if you are unable to make this time you must make your own way to the island at your own cost.
