Iyengar Yoga on the Greek Island of Hydra

Now that travel restrictions have eased I am delighted to invite you to a week long yoga course on the wonderful Greek island of Hydra from September 18-25, 2021. This is a great opportunity to deepen your yoga with twice daily classes and optional group meditations.

Please arrive on September 18 with a view to commencing classes on September 19. The course finishes after morning class on September 25th at 10.30am.

THE COURSE

Yoga classes will be held every morning for 7 mornings. There will be a break after brunch for resting, walking, swimming, etc. We will have one afternoon free. The 5 Evening practices will be devoted to recuperative asanas and pranayama sessions.

Equipment

It is essential that each student brings 1 sticky mat, 4 foam blocks and a belt.

THE VENUE

The workshop will take place on the picturesque Greek island of Hydra. One of the most distinctive features of Hydra is that there are no cars or motorbikes permitted anywhere on the island, and the harbour boasts a selection of sailing yachts from around the world. The Hydroussa Hotel is an elegant, traditional hotel overlooking a courtyard with lemon trees. Each room is simple with a new en-suite bathroom, telephone, air conditioning and TV. This fine example of Island architecture has a magnificent drawing room (considered a museum) and this is where the yoga classes take place. The rooms don’t have hot drink making facilities so a travel kettle may be useful.

FEES

The Hydroussa hotel costs 112 Euros per night for a single room and 112 Euros per night for two people sharing (56 Euros each) and this includes breakfast in the courtyard overlooking the square..

The cost of the week’s yoga tuition is £420.

Transport, transfers, insurance and all food other than breakfast are not included; there are many other excellent Tavernas nearby.

Bookings can be secured by making a non-returnable deposit of £420 to my Nat West Account Lorraine McConnon 25047612, Sort 56 00 23 . Please use your name as a reference and drop me a line when this payment is made. Write to me first on lrnmcn@gmail.com to reserve your place before you book flights as places are limited.

 

CANCELLATION CONDITIONS AND TRAVEL INFORMATION

Full balance is due on or before 14 July when the hotel requires full payment; after that date no refund is payable. Places are not transferable. Please note the accommodation component is priced in Euros to reflect fluctuating exchange rates.

Flights depart from a variety of UK airports to Athens. Hydra is then 90 minutes on the hydrofoil; the hotel is less than 5 minutes’ walk from the port of Hydra.

The last ferry can leave Piraeus at 5pm, so ensure your flight arrives in Athens in time to catch it. Ferry timetable are on line and I will advise you in detail it’s your first time travelling to Hydra. From Athens airport it is possible to get a coach, tube (one change), or taxi to the port to catch the ferry. I suggest you allow a two hour window from landing time before ferry departure.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about this holiday.
