The Retreat centre offers Brunch and Dinner included in your stay.
The menu is inspired by a collaboration between 2 amazing chefs. An award-winning chef from Berlin – the talented and passionate Boris Lauser. A published author and a world-class chef, also Europe’s best raw food chef award winner.
Teamed up with our own Cyril Schivo from Paris, who lived and worked as a chef in 8 different countries, his gigs included the famous restaurant at the Ritz in Paris and even being a full-time private chef for a president in Africa.
The ethos of this retreat is 100% health and well-being, giving you time to relax, unwind and reconnect. BUT for those looking for a bit of a party, there is plenty to do on the island, including pubs and beach parties.
It’s 9 days of daily yoga, meditation, plus lots of sleep & sunshine so you can expect to leave feeling rejuvenated

It is the perfect balance of effort and surrender-nurture yourself with challenging Vinyasa yoga in the mornings, then explore your personal practice and some fun advancements. It is all suitable for most abilities.
The morning Vinyasa will be creative, flowing and challenging and we slow down in the evening class where we will cover a variety of topics in a workshop setting including:m covering partner yoga, the 8 limbs of yoga, chakras, arm balances, inversions, and pranayama. Pick and choose, do a little or a lot, it is your holiday to enjoy. The retreat setting allows for plenty of individual guidance so that we’ll be able to work with your specific level and requirements. Getting away in a beautiful setting to practice yoga is just amazing and will leave you feeling refreshed and revived.
