A Yoga and Beach Holiday on the Breathtaking Island of Kefalonia, Greece
25 September – 2 October 2021 • Cost from £425
The first thing to strike you about the venue Vigla Village is its sublime location on the Ionian Coast of the Greek island of Kefalonia. It’s a feast for the senses as you take in the intoxicating smell of the pine and eucalyptus trees and the crystal clear, deep blue of the Ionian sea. Coupled with the welcoming and open-hearted Greek hospitality of Anna and Angelos, you cannot help but begin to relax as soon as you arrive. Perched high on a clifftop, the clean and comfortable apartments with private balconies, overlook the inspiring panorama. Just a short stroll away you can take the picturesque path down to Vigla’s own private beach and the warm and inviting sea. Vigla Village simply blows you away; it’s the sort of place that you want to come back to time after time.
The daily programme:
Each day will begin with a flowing asana class on the wonderful yoga platform overlooking the endless blue ocean, opening the body and attuning the mind to the breath. Morning practice will be followed by a hearty breakfast. Then you will be free to head off down to the beach, relax by the pool or explore the stunning beauty of the surroundings. The group will meet again in the late afternoon for a second more restorative yoga session, often including pranayama and meditation as part of the practice. The classes will be suitable for all levels and yoga experience. There will be one yoga free day during the week. In the evenings, there are a few charming traditional Greek tavernas within walking distance of Vigla. Lunch and dinner aren’t included in the cost to give people the option to go for dinner as a group or self cater if they prefer, each apartment has a small kitchen.
Vigla Village offers self catering apartments which are clean, spacious and have air conditioning and private balconies with sea views. All apartments have between one and three bedrooms and share a bathroom, small lounge area and kitchen facilities.
‘What an amazing trip. I loved Kefalonia, Spartia and the yoga retreat at Vigla Village – oh and the fab taverna just across the road – and Kefalonia has the best olives. I am a recent convert to yoga and the tutor Lisa was absolutely brilliant.’ Deborah
