Greece awaits you!

Kithira has a rugged, simple beauty and tourism here is still quite undeveloped. Kithira is a calm refuge that takes pride in its traditional way of life, and boasts some of the most astonishingly beautiful beaches in all of Greece. Combining the power of yoga with the rugged beauty and passionate energy of the Greek Islands will transform you!

The Island

Your journey begins on one of the yet undiscovered Greek islands, Kithira. This unique island will satisfy your natural wanderlust, with its charming secluded beaches, white washed villages, and spectacular local cuisine. Places like this don’t exist anymore!

You will stay in the coastal village of Avlemonas, right beside the famed beaches of Paleopoli where it is said that the goddess of love, Aphrodite rose from the sea.

Here you will be accommodated in one of the specially selected family run, boutique hotels. No two rooms are the same and all are booked on a first come first serve basis. For the most spectacular views, book early!

No matter where you stay, your accommodations will be immaculately clean and peaceful, and only steps from the sea. Your private room is equipped with a small kitchenette, bathrooms, and patio space.

All pricing is per person. If you’re travelling with friends, we’ll arrange for two bedroom accommodations or larger rooms for couples.

THINGS TO DO

  • The locals will have you feeling at home in no time. The town is a five minute walk, end to end, and has some of the finest in farm to table cuisine.

  • For those that crave adventure, hop into one of the private cars provided for you and go on an exploration of your own. There are over 35 beaches on the island, with countless picturesque towns, local markets and sacred sites to explore.

  • One of our favourite things to do in Kithira is join in on local festivals, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself in the middle of a traditional dance or catching the bouquet at a big fat Greek wedding.

  • “A vacation, a life learning and a yoga learning experience—all in one.”

 Nourishment

Your trip includes two group dinners where we’ll share with you some of the freshest cuisine this island has to offer. Your vegetables are picked in gardens just steps away from where your meal is served.

For the rest of your meals, we encourage you to explore the island and try all that it has to offer from fresh spinach pies right out of wood burning ovens, to Greek salads piled high with just picked, organic tomatoes that taste heavenly. Restaurants here are committed to serving seasonal vegetables and growing their own food as much as possible.

If you’re a seafood lover, you can watch the day’s catch come in and know that your seafood couldn’t be fresher.
