Ithaca, Greece

August 4 to 11, 2018 &

August 11 to August 18, 2018

Referred to as “Among the most beautiful yoga retreat centers in Europe,” Itha108 combines elegance with natural beauty. Itha108 is located on the Island of Ithaca, which lies between the mainland of Greece and Kefalonia. This small island charms visitors with its lush greenery, pristine beaches and uniquely peaceful energy.
 
Respectfully built into the hillside with panoramic views of the Ionian Sea, Itha108 is an idyllic place for spiritual renewal. The retreat’s stunning architecture creates seamless indoor/outdoor living for dining, bathing on sun-drenched terraces and relaxing in shady, quiet spots. This gives guests space to enjoy personal time, as well as the opportunity to connect with others and with nature.
The Daily Program
In the mornings, we will practice outdoors on the wooden yoga platform overlooking the sea. We’ll begin with meditation, and then move into an active practice, appropriate for all levels of practitioners. 

The late-afternoon session will be a combination of yin and restorative yoga, as well as an exploration of alignment and deepening postures.

In between the morning and afternoon yoga sessions, we will have daily walks to one of three beautiful beaches, all just 5-minutes away by foot. Spend your time swimming in the sea, sunbathing or taking a personal excursion to Kioni or Vathy, one of the picturesque Island villages for shopping and cafes. There is also the opportunity for a guided island hike or you can simply relax at Itha108 – read, nap, receive a massage, etc.

Annual Whidbey Island Weekend Yoga Retreat

Whidbey Island November 2 – 4, 2018 with Jodi Boone & Tami Hafzalla

Join us for our annual weekend retreat at the beautiful Whidbey Institute. Just 1.25 hours north of Seattle, Whidbey Island feels like a world away. This is a special weekend where you can dedicate time to yourself and your practice, as well as share a rich experience with other yogis from the community. It’s amazing what a weekend away will do for your mind, body and spirit!

The retreat begins at 3 pm on Friday with checking into your room or cabin and settling in. Our first yoga class is at 4:30 pm, helping you to unwind and ease into retreat mode. The retreat ends on Sunday, after lunch, at about 1 pm. We make the special request that people take the day off from work on Friday, so that they can make their way to the island leisurely, avoiding the weekend lines and catching an early ferry to Whidbey, arriving to the island unhurried.

During the weekend, you’ll have plenty of time to relax, hike, read, walk the labyrinth, nap, or meditate in the sanctuary. The pricing for this retreat depends on your choice of accommodation and ranges from $400 to $595. This weekend is all inclusive with cozy accommodation, delicious vegetarian meals, a blend of hatha flow and restorative yoga sessions and group circle time. To view the brochure, click here.
