Itha108 is a Greek island retreat set in a place of outstanding natural beauty, providing a space specifically for peace, relaxation and practice.

Ithaca, home of Itha108, is one of the smallest in the Ionian islands that is radiating with Grecian authenticity. It’s shores play host to a long Homeric and mythical history whose many mysteries are sensed amongst animated panorama and secretive coves. Itha108 overlooks the sea and the eastern coastline of neighbouring Kefalonia from an elevated wilderness of olive trees and exposed rocks that provide the elements around which it is built, allowing its natural beauty to speak for itself. An emphasis on indoor-outdoor living ensures full use of the land and its treasures that extend to sweeping and hidden beaches below.

YOGA:

Our practice will include Yogic Lectures, Asana, Pranayama, Kriyas, Mediation and Mantra practices. Yoga will be 2 hours in the morning before breakfast, 2 hours in the evening before dinner. For more information on the style of yoga Zephyr teaches……….

About Itha108

Referred to as “Among the most beautiful yoga retreat centres in Europe,” Itha108 combines elegance with natural beauty. Itha108 is located on the Island of Ithaca, which lies between the mainland of Greece and Kefalonia. This small island charms visitors with its lush greenery, pristine beaches and uniquely peaceful energy.

Respectfully built into the hillside with panoramic views of the Ionian Sea, Itha108 is an idyllic place for spiritual renewal. The retreat’s stunning architecture creates seamless indoor/outdoor living for dining, bathing on sun-drenched terraces and relaxing in shady, quiet spots. This gives guests space to enjoy personal time, as well as the opportunity to connect with others and with nature.

The Program

In the mornings we will practice outdoors on the wooden yoga platform overlooking the sea. We’ll begin with meditation and then move into an active practice, appropriate for all levels of practitioners.

The late-afternoon session will be a combination of yin and restorative yoga, as well as an exploration of alignment and deepening postures.

In between the morning and afternoon yoga sessions we will have daily walks to one of three beautiful beaches, all just 5 minutes away by foot. Spend your time swimming in the sea, sunbathing or taking a personal excursion to Kioni or Vathy – one of the picturesque Island villages for shopping and cafes. There is also the opportunity for a guided island hike or you can simply relax at Itha108 – read, nap, receive a massage etc.

The Food

Food at Itha108 is fresh, delicious and made only from local produce. All vegetables are organic and sourced from the best of what the Islands of Ithaca and neighboring Kefalonia have to offer. Plentiful, home-cooked menus blend traditional Greek cuisine with a contemporary style. All meals are vegetarian.

Accommodation

Itha108 offers lovely accommodation, decorated with furnishings from Rajasthan, India, as well as Greece. There are two styles of rooms: Bedrooms and Mongolian Yurts.

Bedrooms are located in the main house. Each room has its own private bathroom, air-conditioning, mosquito nets and sea views. Bedrooms sleep one or two people.

Mongolian Yurts are set on platforms, high among the rocks and trees, with sea views. The Yurts are light and airy and each bed has a mosquito net. Two of the yurts share a bathroom, which has been carved into the rocks, with a sea grass roof. There is one standard yurt and two luxury yurts that have en-suite bathrooms.
