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, 15 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 7th year running to teach 8 classes from Wednesday 22-27 May, 2024.
Arrive Wednesday 22 May in time for dinner; classes starts at 8:30am -11am on 23 May, evening classes 5:30-7pm through until Sunday 26 May, we will check out on Monday 27 May.
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. An optional cultural trip may be arranged, or you can simply relax in the break; there are world-class beaches literally minutes away. It is possible to extend your stay before or after the yoga course, to see some of the fascinating places nearby.
The cost for the yoga tuition is £380 GBP
Accommodation costs are €45 sharing and €70 single p.p.p.night. Food, insurance and travel costs are extra. Your hotel and dining costs will be paid for at the end of your stay..
