As the winter months unfold, why not plan to satisfy the universal yearning for deep rest, relaxation and rejuvenation on sunny shores.
For many years now I’ve been looking for a venue to host a yoga retreat which is very simply just about allowing the course members uninterrupted space to deepen their yoga practice surrounded by nature with views of the sea, sunset, and not much else, and does not involve a long-haul flight.
So I am very pleased to have been introduced to Karpasia in Northern Cyprus. The Oasis is a no-frills, 10 room hotel with two huge qualities: its location – it’s nestled between the sea and a 12th century site of worship, and its food; the hotel restaurant has a reputation for fresh, locally-sourced food which people come from miles around to enjoy. I will be returning there for the 4th year running to teach 9 classes in 2020 from 22 – 27 May, over the (English) Bank Holiday Weekend.
Arrive Friday May 22nd in time for dinner; class starts at 8am -11am on May 23rd through until May 27th inclusive. The course will end after the morning class on 27 May at 11am.
Our morning Yoga sessions will take place on a shaded terrace set between the sea, and an ancient ruin.
Evening classes will be recuperative and last for 90 minutes. There will also be allocated times for group meditation and an opportunity to learn to meditate. Optional cultural trips will be arranged some afternoons (these cost 10 euros each last year), and there are world-class beaches literally minutes away.
The cost for the 9 yoga classes is £340 GBP or €390, plus accommodation (€30 sharing, €45 single), food, insurance and travel costs.
