Lesvos Kundalini Yoga Retreat



“It is a truly special experience. In life one is given precious few days where you are in harmony with the world and pleasure comes without effort – glowing days that make our normal trials worthwhile. Yet this is how the yoga holiday felt all week. I’m sure it is only made possible by the hard work of Barbara, the hotel and the friendly people of Lesbos. Weeks like this do not come every day.

I felt in safe and experienced hands during the yoga. Just the right amount of challenge to make it worthwhile without being onerous. The Gong baths and massages are a fantastic bonus. Thanks Stewart and Yo.

The accommodation is excellent. Separate enough to feel you have your own space yet close enough to fellow guests to create a sense of community. The breakfasts and evening meals together are always a delight. Good food, good company what more can one ask. It’s hard to describe the experience without gushing. Suffice to say, we will be back!”

Now looking forward to a third year, we are planning another unique Lesvos Yoga Retreat for 2018.

Accommodation  Once again our Accommodation will be in the tranquil and secluded Villa Daphnis & Chloe with the excellent people of the Votsala Hotel (of which the Villa forms a part) looking after us. The venue is quite unique and lends itself perfectly to Yoga; there is space for up to 20 people at the Villa. Partners who do not wish to participate in the Yoga are also welcome and can enjoy the facilities of both Daphnis & Chloe and the Votsala Hotel, walking swimming, cycling or simply relaxing by the pool or beach.

Dates   Our Yoga Retreat will start on Saturday 5th May until Saturday 13th May 2018. You may wish to extend your stay; either before the Yoga Retreat begins, when there will be walking holidays being held at the Votsala Hotel (email for more details), or afterwards to stay on and explore more of beautiful Lesvos island.

Programme   There will be daily Kundalini Yoga sessions, including Meditations. You do not need to have done Yoga before; we cater for beginners as well as the more experienced. Sessions will be taught in English. There will be a brunch provided every morning. And you will have lots of free time to enjoy the private pool at the Villa, swim from the hotel beach, walk, cycle, visit the fabulous Hot Springs and explore the island if you wish. We’re happy to offer suggestions, and help with arrangements during your Yoga Retreat week.

Costs*  Accommodation per person for the week will be £360/400 euro, based on 2 sharing an apartment. The apartments are large, modern and spacious with separate sleeping areas, private outside space and self-catering facilities. Single use of an apartment costs an extra £220/245 euro.  A discount is available for 3 sharing – please ask for details.

Tuition fees for the Yoga are £265/320eu per person.

*costs are based on exchange rates at the time of going to press; costs may decrease or increase if sterling/euro rates change significantly before March 2018.



Flights to Mytilene (Lesvos) are not included, nor are transfers from the airport to the Villa; please ask for our Information sheet before making any bookings. General information about flights can be found here.
