We're heading to Lefkada, Greece!
Our yoga retreat will be held at the Urania Luxury Villas, on a low hill overlooking the Ionian sea. Each villa is private on the land, nestled amongst oak and olive trees. All homes have an ocean view and their own private pool + sun deck.
There are several residences. Each can sleep up to six people (two per room). Single room options are available at an adjusted rate.
Our yoga studio (where we'll be spending most of our time) is perched on a cliff overlooking the sea and is positioned far from any main road. It comes equipped with props, mats and an ocean breeze.
We'll be diving into Katonah Yoga practices and workshops that will inspire change in our organs, glands, nervous systems, yoga practices, lives. The classes will be all levels, all bodies, all inclusive.
We’ll spend some time Urania'sprivate beach, which is a 15/20 minute walk from our hilltop home. We will also visit some of the Mediterranean's most famous beaches: Egkremnio, Porto Katsiki, and Gialos. Urania is only about 3 miles from Vasiliki, which is the most famous bay for surfing + other water sports. We’ll take a mid-week boating trip and island hop to local swimming holes.
All meals are home cooked and fresh from the local farms. We will eat together outdoors on a private balcony and drink wine purchased from the local vineyard.

Lefkada (or Lefkas) is ringed by electric-blue water, and shimmers with wild olive groves and the spear-shaped forms of cypress trees. Despite being connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway it feels in places distinctly untamed by the tourism footprint, whose developed enclaves tend to be on the east coast. Lonely Island
Lefkada is characterized by its verdant forests and fertile valleys that reach its coasts. It belongs to the famous Ionian complex and lies close to the Albanian coasts. The whole island is extremely blessed with impressive landscapes, endless golden sandy beaches with crystalline waters, traditional villages and several busy tourist resorts that suggest a plethora of summer activities. Lefkada deep religious roots are shown in the number of Orthodox churches, archaeological sites and museums. The beautifully well-preserved town of Lefkada combines a plethora of traditional features and world-famous facilities which attract hundreds of tourists in the summer. A trip to the surrounding settlements of Lefkada is a chance to experience the warm hospitality and cheerful mood of the locals. The island is ideal for all tastes and ages. www.greeka.com
