Blue Sky Yoga

Blue Sky Yoga is a holiday with a difference on a beautiful and unspoilt Greek island. On offer are yoga, drama and voice workshops plus reflexology treatments. The holiday takes place for one week on the island of Lesvos (Lesbos), Greece and is led by David Farmer - theatre director and yoga teacher. This is the third holiday David has run in Lesvos.

Stay in a purpose built centre with its own dance studio, amongst olive trees, hills and wild flowers. Milelja is a beautiful retreat centre just outside the historic town of Molyvos. The centre overlooks the Aegean sea and provides extremely comfortable accommodation in a very relaxing environment.

Each day will offer one or two yoga sessions suitable for beginners or more experienced students. Additional activities include drama and voice workshops and an optional boat trip. You may also choose to enjoy a reflexology treatment by qualified therapist Julia Webb.

Dates: June 22nd - 29th 2006

Cost: £395 for one week, (not including flight). A non-returnable deposit of £100 secures a place, with the balance payable by 22nd April 2006. You may pay by credit card in any currency. You will also need to book and pay for your flight or ferry. You can fly direct to Lesvos from the UK, or via Athens from most countries. If you wish to extend your holiday there are plenty of places to stay locally.

Activities: Up to two and three-quarter hours of yoga, drama and voice workshops are on offer every day except Sunday, plus walking, sightseeing, sunbathing and relaxing on the beach or at the centre. An additional two-hour workshop is also offered on one afternoon. Remember – you can do as much or as little as you like.

Additional:

Milelja Centre
Milelja is a purpose-built retreat centre. It provides an intimate atmosphere for workshops, with sweeping views of the village and sea. Trees and natural stone buildings, carefully fitted into the landscape, form the special character.

Built along ecological guidelines, the accommodation is in very comfortable twin-bedded rooms. Accomodation includes bungalows, apartments and rooms in a large house. Single rooms are available on payment of a supplement of £65 per week.

 

Nearby Attractions:

Molyvos (Also known as Mithymna)
Situated on the north-western tip of the island of Lesvos, Molyvos town is truly breathtaking. A dramatic medieval castle sits atop a hill overlooking one of the most beautiful harbours in Greece. You can wander cobbled streets leading up to the castle, past fascinating houses, shops, boutiques and cafes and sample mouth-watering dishes at the plentiful tavernas. You will be spoilt for choice by the high quality of many of the restaurants. There are plenty of choices for vegetarians and fish-lovers alike.

It is easy to hire a car or small motor bike to explore the magical island of Lesvos, driving through abundant olive groves, mountains and sleepy villages to find secluded beaches, hot mineral springs, a petrified forest and the home of legendary poetess Sappho. The island has more varieties of birds and wild flowers than anywhere else in Europe.

Lesvos has an abundance of volcanic mineral springs. Near to Molyvos is Eftalou, situated amongst sandy beaches with an expansive view of Turkey. The water at Eftalou is very hot (43-46°C) and rich in minerals. You don’t have to stay in for long and can alternate with refreshing dips in the sea.

 
Schedules & Itineraries

Activities: Up to two and three-quarter hours of yoga, drama and voice workshops are on offer every day except Sunday, plus walking, sightseeing, sunbathing and relaxing on the beach or at the centre. An additional two-hour workshop is also offered on one afternoon. Remember – you can do as much or as little as you like. A typical timetable is as follows:

Sample itinerary:

7.30 - 8.15 am: Sunrise yoga

9.00 - 11.00 am: Yoga and voice workshop

11.00am: Sumptuous brunch

Afternoon: Free time - maybe a stroll into town, a swim in the sea, a visit to the hot springs, a relaxing reflexology treatment - or just enjoy the rest of the day in the sun. Massage is available locally in Molyvos and Petra.

Evening: Take time out to explore the multitude of tavernas, cafes, craft and jewellery shops in the winding streets of Molyvos.

On two days during the week additional activities will be on offer, including a drama workshop and a boat trip to nearby harbour village Skala Sikaminias – made famous in the book “The Mermaid Madonna”. (A small charge is payable for the latter trip).
