Celebrate life and myth – Greek and Indian – at this glorious island retreat with Laura Gilmore. This week will give you the time to slow down, connect more deeply with yourself, and integrate the workings of your body and mind to explore your life’s direction. The stunning Greek island venue, Itha108, provides a dedicated space for peace, relaxation and practice. With amazing sea views and the ultimate “get away from it all” feeling, Ithaca is full of natural beauty. Surrounded by olive trees and sweeping, hidden beaches below, our venue is nestled into this breathtaking landscape.
Each morning there will be a dedicated 2 hour practice to focus the mind, warm and tone the body. The morning asana will provide clear alignment while moving on the breath into flowing asana where suitable. The afternoon practice provides time to ease and release the body and centre the mind with mindfulness, breath and meditation practices. We may also work more deeply into the release of hips, shoulders and other trouble spots.
Laura’s teaching conveys the true spirit and philosophy of yoga through movement and stillness, warmth and humour. With more than 25 years practice and 15 years teaching experience, her deep knowledge and intuition enable students to experience positive transformation, both physical and mental.
There are six luxury double bedrooms in the main house and three mongolian yurts that are staggered up between rocks, forestry and winding walkways. All bedrooms are en-suite and air-conditioned with mosquito nets, coco-mat mattresses, wood panelled ceilings and views across the Ionian sea towards Kefalonia. Each bedroom has a unique identity. The three Mongolian yurts are light and airy inside, sleeping between one to four people. Pathways and steps provide access to the yurt platforms, each with outdoor seating, positioned high among rocks and trees with beautiful sea views.
