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 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 decorated in simple traditional style with a new en-suite bathroom, state of the art double glazing and net screens ,telephone, air conditioning and TV. This fine example of traditional Island architecture boasts a magnificent drawing room (considered as a museum) and this is where the yoga classes will take place. The rooms don’t have hot drink making facilities so a travel kettle may be useful. There are superior rooms and standard rooms available.
The Hydroussa hotel costs 144 Euros per night for a single standard room, for two people sharing that comes to 72 Euros each, and 58 Euros per night for 3 people sharing.
The cost of a superior room on the 1st and 2nd floor is 210 Euros per night as a single, 105 Euros each if sharing, and 80 Euros each for 3 people sharing. These prices include breakfast in the courtyard overlooking the square..
The cost of the week’s yoga tuition is £425.

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 as early as 5pm, so ensure check ferry timetable and book your ferry, and that your flight arrives in Athens in good time to catch it. Ferry timetables are on line and I can advise you in detail if 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 minimum of a two hour window from landing time before ferry departure. The taxi ride takes approx 45 minutes, allow double that if taking the bus or tube.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
