2019 Yoga retreat information

Join Christina for a truly special, rejuvenating and bespoke yoga experience this summer.

Prepare to completely switch off and surrender as you settle into the easy rhythms of island life and the charms of our very special property - Aegean Blue. Its unique atmosphere and unity with the rugged Greek landscape allows even the most committed urbanite the opportunity to rediscover what it means to simply BE. Offering breathtaking panoramic views that take in the Aegean Sea, the volcanic mountain range and the area’s natural farmland, it really is the place where you can leave the rat race behind and let the elements reclaim your senses.  


Aegean Blue boasts five comfortable, light and airy apartments, each with fully-fitted kitchens, en-suites and all the equipment and comforts you could need for an extended stay. It has a stunning cliffside pool, huge yoga deck with incredible views, plenty of terraces and shared spaces including a communal kitchen and a secluded beach right on  its doorstep. It really is the perfect place to escape the stresses and strains of modern life. Prepare to detox - spiritually and digitally!


The Aegean Blue property is on the volcanic side of the island, an hour and a half drive from the capital of Mytilini. Its secluded, off-the-grid location is the very reason why guests return again and again. But if it’s exploration and adventure you are after, you will find fishing villages, beach resorts, jazz bars, open-air cinemas, ancient historical landmarks, the famous petrified forests and a plethora of traditional restaurants, cool bars and cafes all within a comfortable drive of the property.

Suitable for all ages and abilities, classes are customised to suit you, with plenty of opportunities to open the heart, work the body and relax the soul. I offer plenty of adaptions and variations of postures so that you can choose to either challenge yourself or stay within your comfort zone…whatever you need! Expect lots of creative flows, spaces to still the mind and opportunities to try something new, all set to my signature sublime music backdrop.

Please note: Guests are not obliged to take part in all yoga classes and activities on offer - it is YOUR holiday after all! Please feel free to participate as much or as little as you please. 

Enjoy a true taste of the Mediterranean! All food is lovingly prepared by local people, using locally-sourced, organic produce and traditional, nourishing Greek recipes. 

Expect breakfast to be served buffet style and to include fare such as local yoghurt with honey, nuts and seeds, hard boiled eggs and olives, muesli, koulouria biscuits, fresh figs and peaches.

Early-evening dinners are either served at Aegean Blue overlooking the pool by candle light or at one of the local tavernas in the fishing village of Tavari which is a 15 minute walk from the property. What’s on offer will very much depend on what is freshly available on the day, with meat, fish and vegetarian options being readily available. Typical dishes include Yemista (stuffed tomatoes), Pythakia (lamb chops) and freshly-caught fish or squid. All Greek meals come with a mouthwatering variety of mezé, salads and side dishes so there is always something for everyone! And let’s not forget the traditional Greek desserts!

Lunch times are at your disposal to choose to do whatever you wish. You may cater for yourself in your apartment, try one of the many local restaurants on the island or visit Eleni and Nico who run the charmingly rustic beach taverna at the foot of Aegean Blue. They will gladly provide a wide range of delicious and inexpensive homemade dishes, all in a truly local, bohemian atmosphere.

All dietary requirements can be catered for. Please inform me of any specific needs you may have upon booking.
