Kythira Island is one of the most isolated islands in Greece. For those wanting to restore some balance to their lives, Semperviva’s yoga retreat on Kythira Island is the perfect choice. The coastline of Kythira is over 50km in length, and is strewn with some of the world’s most spectacular secluded beaches.
Kythira Island allows you to experience authentic Greece. It is a culture that still relies heavily on agriculture as a source of income, a fact which makes the locals proud. Its locally produced honey made with thyme is renowned throughout Greece, as are the rare Semperviva Flowers (hence Semperviva Yoga) which grow wild on the steepest cliffs on the eastern end of the island.
Yoga and The Serenity of Greece
Breathtaking landscapes are a prominent feature on Kythira Island, which makes it the perfect spot for a relaxing yoga retreat and meditation. Numerous gorges are home to a variety of wildlife and birds, and late in the season golden eagles can be seen circling the skies above the precarious cliff top monastery of Agia Moni. The diverse scenery on offer means Kythira is ideal both for walkers and nature lovers whilst the more artistic can spend days searching for the perfect subject amongst the deserted villages and impressive stone bridges, remnants of past empires. Although the attractions of the interior are many, the beaches are still a favourite for most, and especially for those practicing yoga.
Whether your priorities are secluded splendour or convenience and a sun-bed, Kythira Island has something for everyone.
