Corfu Yoga Retreat 2023
with Eric Bennewitz & Sarah Pröwrock
North-West tip of Corfu. Arillas, Corfu, Greece.
Eric (English) / Sarah (German)
Arillas – Feels like Paradise…
Arillas is a truly magical place on the north-west tip of Corfu.
Its a place with a slower pace of life & a calming energy that will effortlessly absorb into your being and let you forget about any TO DO lists and hectic schedules.
Together with Sarah Pröwrock from Peace Out Yoga, we invite you to this yoga retreat on the beautiful island of Corfu from September 9-16, 2023.
While staying on this island paradise, everything that you will need will be within a short walking distance: bright, modern apartments not far from the tranquil beach village of Arillas, a spacious wooden yoga shala steps away from your accommodations, and nearby supermarkets and shops in case you forgot anything or need anything during your stay.
A few steps up the picturesque coastal slope, our landlord Nikos runs his café/restaurant Akrotiri, which is well-known for its spectacular sunsets and vegetarian cuisine.
It is here at Akrotiri that we will enjoy healthy breakfasts and dinners daily. If you wish, staying in these walking distance locations may be all you want for the week, but your also welcome to jump on a Quad or boat and explore more of Corfu if you feel like exploring.
Whereas the island can provide many fun external journeys, our yoga classes will take you on a different kind of journey–inwards. Eric and Sarah, will offer a diverse mix of dynamic yoga styles, healing yin yoga, restorative yoga, pranayama practices, evening yoga nidra meditations, a special class with live music or sound bath and personal private-sessions if desired. Everything you’ll need to de-compress and balance you into an unforgettable week in Arillas!
The Akrotiri Restaurant
“The location of Akrotiri on the cliffs above Arillas is without exaggeration…spectacular!
We are very fortunate to be able to offer both breakfast and dinner here. Due to the ideal north-west orientation on the coast and the slightly elevated position above the village, you will soak in some beautiful and long sunsets here.
The vegetarian food choices at Akrotiri are about variety. You will be spoiled with fresh local delicacies and maybe even Nicos’ mom spontaneously cooking her favorite dish or colorful Greek-style desserts for you!
We arrive in Corfu on Saturday (09.09) and travel into Arillas one after the other and then check into into our rooms beginning at 3 p.m. Our first yoga class together will take place on Sunday from 07.30-09.30 before breakfast.

We arrange the allocation to the rooms depending on the composition of the yoga group and with regard to individual wishes.
