Take yoga from the comfort of your own
home to Skyros breathtaking landscape. What better way to relax than freeing the mind, strengthening the body and lifting the spirit - the physical benefits of yoga are myriad.
When some people think yoga, they think of people doing strange poses whilst standing on their head, contorting their bodies into the most unusual shapes and positions. But don't be intimidated. Yoga offers lots of different movements and sequences to suit every age, body shape, and ability. The poses are a constant, but the approach to them varies depending on the tradition in which the teacher has been trained. But whatever the tradition, the Skyros yoga courses are facilitated by many outstanding teachers who will accommodate both the more learned of students and beginners.
Hatha yoga, Vinyasa yoga, and Yoga for All and we now have Yin & Yang Yoga and Pilates. More than its courses, SKYROS offers a way of living in which everyone has a part to play. Its community informal, friendly, relaxed, and yet vibrant brings people together in a way that makes it possible for everyone to feel immediately at home.
At Atsitsa Bay, participants live just moments from the sea. Some stay in a spacious stone villa and others in bamboo huts situated in the midst of lush gardens, and only moments from the sea.
At Skyros Centre, we offer twin share or single upgrades in traditional Greek hotels just moments from the beach.
For the rest of the world, please choose from your desired location here.
In Greece, food is Mediterranean-style served on a full board (Atsitsa Bay) or half board (Skyros Centre) basis. The freshest ingredients are always used locally sourced seasonal fruits and vegetables, natural yoghurt and cheeses, pulses and grains. Lunches tend to be vegetarian and Mediterranean in style. Meat or fish is usually served in the evenings. We are happy to cater to vegetarians.
For our other destinations around the world, we always embrace the cultures’ cuisine but cater for every dietary requirement and participants preferences.
