We try everything from laser treatments to collagen creams, but a yoga retreat in Greece is still the ultimate glow up. On the breathtaking island of Koufonisia, practitioners of all levels can dive into powerful yoga, breathwork and meditation. You’ll reinvigorate your inner glow and leave beaming from the inside out thanks to the soothing asanas and scrumptious Greek-inspired meals. For the more adventurous, there’s also island hopping and cliff jumping!

Welcome to The Island Glow, your summer meeting with a brighter, lighter, freer self. Getting into our bodies is so important for actually getting clear on what self-care is for us. Yoga asana is a powerful tool for doing just that. The inner yoga comes with the more subtle practices of breathwork and meditation. We tend to see things not as they are, but rather as we are. And if we’re not clear on how we think then we are living unconsciously. This holiday lets you work from the inside out to purify, realign and reinvigorate that inner glow.

The Island Yoga Resort consists of two beachfront villas overlooking one of the most dreamy beaches of the island. The location is ideal to walk everywhere you want and explore! The beach is just 10 minutes away on foot while the Lil town is a beautiful 30 minutes walk.

The venue
The villas blend harmoniously with the raw landscape of Koufonisia and their large outdoor spaces and patios are ideal for lazy afternoon siestas and reading. The zen atmosphere of the resort is completed with a covered outdoor yoga shala and a Thai-massage room, both made with natural materials.

During the holiday, you can choose to stay in a private room or in a shared room. 

Food
Your Koufonisia nutrition is a carefully curated blend of island tastes and a vegetarian diet catered by Fykiada Retreats food experts. The team uses the freshest daily produce from Koufonisia and the nearby islands to bring each meal to life. The aim is to offer not only a yogic food experience to the guests but also a real taste of Greek culture and community that transcends every gathering and food sharing.
If you have special dietary requirements it's a good idea to communicate them to the organiser when making a reservation

Program

Rebecca Hajek, a world traveller and inspiring yogi, will be leading a well-rounded yoga schedule, blending a strong Vinyasa style class alongside a more intricate exploration of proper alignment and therapeutics of the postures. The raw nature of Koufonisia, along with the seaside location and a carefully curated program of island adventure await for you to shine and glow! 

Yoga Asana and Special Classes
Morning Yoga
Expect a strong Vinyasa-inspired flow designed available for all levels of practice followed by some pranayama, kriyas, and meditation.

Afternoon Practice
Post activities and time in the sun will have you feeling pretty chill so the afternoon classes will be more Hatha and slow flow inspired followed by Yoga Nidra - a relaxation technique. 

Masterclass
Myths of the Asanas: take a journey into the pages of the Mahabharata and Ramayana - India’s sacred texts through movement and story-telling in order to enhance your yogic path. This 2-hour Vinyasa Flow workshop allows you to bridge the wisdom of the ancient stories to modern-day lessons that you can practically apply to your daily lives.

Yin/Restorative
Yin yoga is characterized by longer-held postures that target the connective tissue to improve flexibility and joint stability.
