Set aside some time to truly focus on yourself at The Ionisi Yoga Retreat on the serene and special island of Skopelos, a wonderful choice for all levels of yoga practitioners, whether solo, a couple or with a group of friends. With blue waters and fabulous beaches, mountains and scenic views, you will be seriously spoiled at The Ionisi Yoga Retreat designed to soothe your soul and mind as the perfect yoga getaway.
At our island retreat, you’ll practice yoga twice daily on the deck around the large pool right by the beach and ocean with the most stunning views or in our indoor room overlooking the sea. You’ll have plenty of time to explore as well, including a trip to the famous Mamma Mia chapel nearby.
It’s a place to stop, step back and recharge. Set by the beach at the stunning Panormos Bay, with a backdrop of lush green groves and with the crisp blue of the Aegean sea, simply savouring the surroundings is meditation itself. All our retreats are timed to be during the cooler and more tranquil months on this beautiful island.
Just a few steps from your accommodation you will slip into the crystal clear, clean waters in Panormos Bay. The rocky headland provides plenty to explore with a snorkel and mask, as well as some rocks to leap from for the more adventurous types.
The Ionisi Yoga retreat on the island of Skopelos, Greece, is a space designed for nature and relaxation. It offers our guests the chance to reconnect with nature alongside likeminded people.
Our May retreats will be lead by Kirsty, an experienced yoga teacher who has taught for many years across the world in the UK, Morocco, Portugal, Sri Lanka, France and Hungary. Kirsty will mainly be leading the evening restorative sessions and offering SUP Yoga weather permitting. Kirsty was trained at the Sivananda Ashram, Kerala, India and Universal Yoga at Dharamsala, India. She is trained in Hatha and SUP yoga with SUP Fit, Brighton, UK. Kirsty trained in Yin yoga with Resting Buddha, Wales and also Chair Yoga and yoga for special needs at the Special Yoga Centre, London.
Teaching alongside Kirsty is Trixie, qualified in Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow 200hr from Inbodhi Brighton, UK. Her classes are powerful, playful and heartfelt and will have you stepping off the mat feeling refreshed, nourished and balanced. Following the teachings of Larry Schultz, founder of Rocket Yoga, she loves to facilitate dynamic and fast-paced yoga flow, blending postures from the Primary, Secondary and Third series into a really fun but challenging practice for all levels. Trixie will also offer special inversions workshops as well as creative writing workshops. She'll have the low down on the history and philosophy of yoga for you to widen your knowledge of yoga should you wish, something often ignored on most retreats and she'll be adding in some really fun Laughter Yoga sessions too!
When not practicing yoga you can simply savour in the sunshine, visit nearby beaches or be on the water kayaking or SUPing. Massage therapies, hiking, island cycling, fabulous boat trips can be added to make sure that you go home not just restored but with marvellous memories. We offer an itinerary that allows you to pick and choose how active or inactive you wish to be and our team will always go the extra mile to make sure you have everything just as you would like it to be.
