Itha108 Greek Island Yoga Retreat with Zephyr Wildman, 15-22 July 2017

picture-of-itha-108

Itha108 is a Greek island retreat set in a place of outstanding natural beauty, providing a space specifically for peace, relaxation and practice.

Ithaca, home of Itha108, is one of the smallest in the Ionian islands that is radiating with Grecian authenticity. It’s shores play host to a long Homeric and mythical history whose many mysteries are sensed amongst animated panorama and secretive coves. Itha108 overlooks the sea and the eastern coastline of neighbouring Kefalonia from an elevated wilderness of olive trees and exposed rocks that provide the elements around which it is built, allowing its natural beauty to speak for itself. An emphasis on indoor-outdoor living ensures full use of the land and its treasures that extend to sweeping and hidden beaches below.

YOGA:

Our practice will include Yogic Lectures, Asana, Pranayama, Kriyas, Mediation and Mantra practices. Yoga will be 2 hours in the morning before breakfast, 2 hours in the evening before dinner. For more information on the style of yoga Zephyr teaches click here

There are yoga shala options on this retreat which we will rotate depending on day and time to get the best views and experiences.

  • outdoor shala 80m2 shaded by tree’s overlooking the sea
  • indoor shala 70m2, lower ground floor with natural light
  • a smaller outdoor yoga space in front of the main house, fully exposed to the sun for “hot yoga”
  • drop-in shala 70m2, amazing views exposed to late morning sun.

FOOD PHILOSOPHY

Food at Itha108 is fresh, sumptuous and made up of local produce. All vegetables are organic and sourced from the best of what Ithaca and neighbouring Kefalonia has to offer. Plentiful, home-cooked menus blend traditional Greek cuisine with a contemporary style. For the retreats, mainly vegetarian food is promoted, although freshly caught fish is available on request.

TRAVEL

The nearest airport is Kefalonia (EFL). Private transport will take the group to the port at Agia Efimia where a private sea taxi will continue the journey on to Ithaca and Itha108.

The transit is for our group travelling together and arrangement for coordinating flights will be made. Our group will depart together the afternoon of 15th July 2017 and return 8:30am 22nd July 2017. Every effort will be made to accommodate peoples itineraries and include you in the group transfer. Any person travelling outside the group has to bear their own costs. Only one group transit, both ways is included in the price.

Travelling outside the group is at your own expense. The ferry for Ithaca leaves from Sami in Kefalonia.
