I’m so excited to be heading out to Greece to spend 7 days teaching for Just Relax on their Corfu retreat! Here are all the details below, you can check them out and book over at http://www.justrelaxyogaholidays.com

Offering a beautiful yet tranquil alternative to the bustling, cosmopolitan beach of Acharavi, Almyros is a peaceful paradise escape, perfect for those looking to take a relaxing break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
While still offering tourist facilities such as sunbeds and parasols, Just Relax is a Greek yoga retreat which allows guests to unwind in its tranquil environment. We welcome couples, solo travellers and friends who’d like to combine their love of yoga with a sunshine holiday.
Yoga holidays run Tuesday to Tuesday with yoga beginning on the Wednesday morning or Tuesday evening.
For your first night in Corfu, we will organize a welcome Greek vegetarian dinner at the villa.
8.30 to 10.00 a.m: Yoga session
10.00 to 11.30 a.m: Breakfast
For breakfast help yourself to fruits, tea/herbal teas, coffee, yogurt, cereals, bread, marmalade/honey, eggs…
11.30 p.m. to 5.30 p.m: Free time
5.30pm to 7.00 pm: Evening yoga session
07.30 to 9.30 p.m: Healthy Dinner (Greek buffet)
Enjoy your buffet feasts as an integral part of your yoga holiday
In the afternoon (around 4.30 to 5.30) if the weather is good, we will bring you by minibus to Cape Drastis where a boat will take us to a peninsula for a unique yoga session. Then we will bring you to “7th Heaven” café bar for an amazing sunset!!!
Saturday will be your free day, the opportunity for you to explore the Island of Corfu.
Monday night, your last night, we will share our last moments together around a dinner at the villa.
Please note if the weather is not good for the boat trip on Friday we will try to manage to reschedule it to the following days.
At all times guests are welcome to have range of water, teas, coffee, fruits (self service)
* * *
The package per student (7 nights) includes:
5 Greek vegetarian dinners (no dinner during the day off and the boat day).
1 Greek lunch (on the boat day).
20 min welcome massage.
2 yoga sessions per day (morning and evening).
1 Yoga class on a peninsula for the evening yoga session (if the weather allows…)
We will take everybody by boat!
Also please note, 1 day will be free of everything, to give the opportunity to everybody to visit the island or to do whatever they want…
Facilities included on the package available from the villa:
Sun beds and parasols, yoga equipment, wifi, washing machine…
What is NOT included:
* Transfer from the airport to the villa (costs 61 euros by taxi). We will try to group people together where is possible so you can share the cost!)
Or you can take the local bus from The main Bus Station in Corfu Town.
* The other lunches during the week.
There are a few typical restaurants near our villa in Almyros beach and if you walk 15/20 min by the beach, you will reach Acharavi village, where you will find plenty of tavernas and restaurants to enjoy your lunch!
We decided not to include the lunches in our packages, since the breakfast/brunch usually finishes around 11.30. That way you will have the whole day free until your evening yoga session
and you can discover this amazing place and meet its amazing people! But if you prefer to stay in, Just Relax’s villa will be your home for the week, so you will be able to cook and enjoy your lunch at the premises.
Also, the dinners are big enough so there is always food left for the day after!
