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 5th year running to teach 8 classes in 2020 from 1 June – 6 June 2022. The Jubilee celebrations give 2 days off work during this week.
Arrive Wednesday June 1st in time for dinner; class starts at 8:30am -11am on June 2nd through until Monday June 6 finishing at 11am inclusive. There will be one afternoon off for sightseeing.
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 on the afternoon off, or you can simply relax; there are world-class beaches literally minutes away.
You may wish to extend your stay after the yoga course to see some of the fascinating places nearby.
The cost for the yoga tuition is £360 GBP or €430.
Accommodation costs are €30 sharing €45 single p.p.p.night. Food, insurance and travel costs are extra. Hotel will be paid for at the end of your stay by you.
