The Essential Elements of Yoga, Meditation & Pampering

We are running two 6-day yoga experiences on the beautiful island of Halki between 16th and 29th of September.

Halki is a beautiful unspoilt island approximately an hour’s ferry ride away from Rhodes. It offers authentic Greek charm and tranquillity and is a world away from the hustle and bustle of day to day life. The island has 3 secluded beaches and a couple of interesting walks. There is a small harbour with a dozen or so bars, restaurants and shops.

The simplicity of the island allows you to relax and unwind with little distraction and helps you focus on the 3-4 hours per day we will dedicate to yoga, meditation and breathing. In addition lectures, on Ayurvedic philosophy and lifestyle, will be given by our qualified Ayurvedic practitioner. There will be plenty of time during the day to sunbathe, swim, go for walks, stop by for a coffee or simply to chill out next to the crystal waters of the Mediterranean.

If pampering is your thing we have both a qualified beautician and an accredited practitioner of Therapeutic Massage, Aromatherapy and Reflexology. A one hour session is included in the package.
