A Typical Day on the Iyengar Yoga Retreat At Urania Villas In Lefkada, Greece

In the Iyengar Yoga Retreat this summer we want you to experience your vacation exactly as it suits you. Truthfully, Urania villas is perfect for those of us who want to feel tranquil and enveloped in a cozy, familiar feeling.

 

Here’s a Typical Day at Our Iyengar Yoga Retreat in Greece:

7:30am

First thing in the morning enjoy the stunning sunrise over the hilltop looking out into the Ionian seas. You can sit quietly in meditation while enjoying some tea and fruit. We will offer a total of  two classes daily. There will be hands on adjustments in the classes, as well as restorative sequences and inversions.

Around sunset the energy will shift. Take one last dip in the pool, gaze out in the horizon, or enjoy a glass of wine while socializing before dinner.

Just as in life, nothing in our retreat is fixed. We will adapt to what each day brings and the external elements, such as weather, tours, energy level, or anything we feel. 🙂

We look forward to enjoying many days like these with you!
