Join Laura Gilmore in Ithaca, Greece, and work to recognise and release unconsciously held beliefs and stress patterns within the body and mind through the teachings of Hatha, Tantra and meditation. The 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 the perfect place for a yoga retreat.
There will be four hours of practice each day. The morning session will be Hatha based, with posture work to explore, energise and balance each of the seven chakras. The afternoon work will include bio-energetic practices, to balance and stimulate the flow of prana within the subtle body. Each day will also include pranayama and meditation related to our theme that day.
Laura’s teaching is adapted for the specific needs of the students, giving a deeply nurturing experience and the opportunity for supported self- healing. Laura 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.
