Details

Arillas – Feels like heaven…

Arillas is a truly magical place on the north-west tip of Corfu.

Together with Eric Bennewitz from Peace Out Yoga, I have the great pleasure of offering a summer yoga retreat on this beautiful island in September 2022.

Days await us in which the highlights patiently alternate: we stay in bright, modern apartments not far from the calm beach promenade. The daily yoga sessions take place in our own garden shala, a spacious wooden building with open roof beams.

A few steps up the picturesque coastal slope, our landlord Nikos runs his café/restaurant Akrotiri, which is known for spectacular sunsets.

This is where we will have breakfast and dinner daily. If you don’t feel like it, you don’t have to leave this magical relaxation circle between apartment, beach and Akrotiri for the entire 7 days.

The cute village of Arillas and the surrounding area offer enough variety for those who are adventurous and dare to go on excursions.

We have createdd yoga practices as it should be for a retreat, on site depending on the climate and shape of the day. Eric and Michael, offer a diverse mix of dynamic yoga styles, healing yin yoga, plus pranayama, yoga nidra & other meditation styles – everything is geared towards an unforgettable week in Arillas!

Our yoga shala for the week is a wonderfully light and spacious wooden pavilion in our own garden. The paths to the beach, to the town center or to Akrotiri are always just a few minutes’ walk for you.

The Akrotiri

“The location of Akrotiri on the headland above Arillas is without exaggeration…spectacular!

We are very fortunate to be able to have both breakfast and dinner evenings here. Due to the ideal north-west orientation on the coast and the slightly elevated position above the village, you will experience beautiful and long sunsets here.

The catering at Akrotiri offer variety – you will be spoiled with fresh local delicacies. Sometimes mum spontaneously cooks her favorite dish or colorful Greek-style desserts!

Procedure

We arrive in Corfu on Saturday and travel into Arillas one after the other and then move into our rooms beginning at 3 p.m. Our first  yoga class together will take place on Sunday before breakfast.

Accommodation

The Liana Apartments are a small oasis of tranquility with their own secluded garden and yoga shala. We can have these accommodations all to ourselves – divided into 4 apartments, each of which has 2 rooms with a shared bathroom, kitchen, TV and WiFi. In this situation, we offer 1 double room for 2 people and 1 single room and see how the group is best distributed.

Due to the size of the yoga shala, we can also let the group grow to more than 12 participants. Rooms in neighboring accommodations are available for additional guests. The prices for these accommodations will differ only slightly from our conditions.

We will try to organize a yoga group boat tour during our stay in Corfu.
