Yoga

Greece has many beautiful islands and places that have their own magic. Since I live on the island of Corfu and this is, in my opinion, one of the best places for yoga, I will describe the months and their characteristics from my perspective in order to help you choose the right time for your yoga vacation. Certainly there are other aspects to consider for yoga retreats on Crete or other islands, but I can't include them all here.

From December to March it is winter here and the yoga schools, retreat centers and hotels are closed. The season starts from April and ends in November – so do direct flights.

Yoga Retreats in April on Corfu

April • Where Life Awakens

Spring in Corfu starts at the end of March, beginning of April. This is a really fascinating time of awakening. The whole island has a fresh green peppered with loud colorful flowers and blossoming trees. If your theme is renewal, spiritual awakening or bringing long cherished dreams to blossom, or perhaps embarking on a new path, then April is right for you. The sun is already in the sky for many hours, it is still cool in the mornings and evenings, but during the day long walks, hikes or excursions can be made without too much heat. Especially the meditations are clear and full of insight. New things are born.

    Yoga Retreats May on Corfu

    May • Grow strong

    May is already wonderfully warm on Corfu. The sea invites the first people to swim, the atmosphere is light and life is flowing. For your yoga practice it is an especially good month to move the winter inertia out of the body and build up new strength. With the Easter Festival, which falls in May, you will find the cultural highlight of the island, everything dances, sings and celebrates life. So you too, awaken, express and experience the beauty and vibrancy within. It already feels like an early summer, supercharging life energy and giving you poses in your yoga flows that you would not have thought possible. The best moment to go beyond yourself in your practice or to use a yoga retreat to establish a new practice.

    June • Supercharge

    Summer has arrived. You can already count the rainy days of the month on one hand, so to speak a sun guarantee. And with the sun comes the joy, the happy hormones and the rise of energy. With a strong yet deep yoga practice, you can let the energy flow through your body and start wonderful, transformative experiences. Your body is warm and flexible and together you can reach unimagined areas, always in balance of flexibility and strength. The water invites you to play, whether stand up paddling, or swimming or going for a boat trip. Or you take lime from the lime cliff on the beach to put on your own whole body lime mask, which is said to have a healing effect. The time in June is dedicated to relaxation, laughter, and being with each other. A quiet meditation practice in the morning grounds you, flow classes strengthen and encourage you, while quiet evening classes clarify your clarity. After a June yoga retreat, you'll know what to do, if it hasn't already fallen into place on its own. June is one of the most popular months in Corfu.

    October • The Secret Little Summer

    Autumn is slowly arriving on Corfu, but the Greek autumn cannot be compared with the Central European one. The locals also call October the little summer, because the sea is the warmest in the whole year and temperatures above 20 degrees are completely normal. The yoga practice is increasingly directed inward, what has been learned can now be perfectly integrated. It feels like a leap in development is taking place, as what has been learned is applied, strength and openness is suddenly recognized and applied. At the same time it can be a great summer time out with sunbathing on the sandy beach.
