Yoga Retreat 2019
15th – 22nd September
Kekrafalia Hotel, Agistri Island, Greece
This retreat is for those who would like to deepen and progress their Ashtanga Yoga practice in beautiful surroundings with a group of lovely people. I do ask that people have some experience in Ashtanga Yoga before coming along. There will be daily meditation, pranayama (breathing techniques), the option to do a half or full Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series practice every morning and then a focussed practice in the early evening to work on technique. All the classes take place outside by the sea, whilst watching the sunrise in the morning, and when it starts to cool down in the evening. Everyone who comes to Agistri falls in love with it and wants to come back over and over again. It’s a perfect place to relax and feel your body and mind unwind.
Kekrifalia hotel (http://www.hotelinagistri.com/en/) has luxury rooms all with sea views and it has its own private beach. There are some lovely scenic walks to do around the island with quaint little villages along the way where you can stop and have a drink and a swim in the calm seawaters to cool off. Everyone will get a free Sports Massage to enjoy at anytime they wish throughout the week to release tension and improve posture so you can get the most out of your Yoga practice.

You need to fly to Athens. Make sure you book an early flight on the way out around 7am to make sure you arrive on the island in good time and that you can get a boat over in the daylight. The boats stop running at 6pm. The other option is to stay over in Athens the night before. There are some good flight prices around if you BOOK EARLY! Prices do go up quite a lot so I would recommend booking as soon as possible for the best prices. On the way back book an afternoon/evening flight that will allow you to get the boat across and to the airport from the port of Piraeus.
From Athens Airport
You can either get a bus for 6 euros from the airport to Piraeus port or a taxi. The taxi is about 50 euros and takes up to an hour the bus is over an hour can take up to 1hr30. They are both outside the airport and well sign posted.
I would recommend the Flying Dolphins or Hellenic Seaways Dolphins as they are faster boats and take around 45mins, cost around £12. We can then arrange a taxi to pick you up from Milos port which is a bout a 5 minute drive. The Ferries are cheaper but take a bit longer, 1hr 15, but they arrive about 5 minutes walk from the hotel so no need for a taxi.
