Yoga Holidays If you’re searching for a summer holiday that will leave you inspired, relaxed and re-energised then our Healthy Options programme may be just what you are looking for. We are based on the beautiful Greek island of Lefkas in the pretty unspoiled fishing village of Vassiliki, well known for its extraordinary natural beauty and as one of the best places for water sports in all of Europe. Although our centre is extremely professional, we are not a retreat, and we certainly won’t be waking you at dawn; what we do offer you is a superb range of activities with daily yoga and Pilates classes, guided cycling and walking trips, aqua-aerobics, body conditioning and other fitness classes. You can also try out sailing and kayaking if you want and we even provide superb massages after all that activity! It’s your holiday and you’re free to do as much or as little as you like, but you won’t want to miss our fantastic 3 island Aqua-safari stopping at gorgeous little beaches for sunbathing, snorkeling and swimming along the way — maybe catching sight of flying fish and dolphins if you are lucky. You might also want to go on our fascinating ‘Herbal walk’ into the interior of the island and discover the enormous range of plants and herbs and how they are used for traditional remedies and cooking. Our small family run hotels are just a few yards away from the beach and set in beautiful landscaped gardens. The village of Vassiliki is just a few minutes walk away where
