Come and join us on our relaxing yoga holiday in Santorini. The wonderful heart-warming people of Greece, the food, and the stunning scenery make it a very special location to retreat to. There really is nothing else quite like Santorini for our sunshine yoga holidays.

The days are yours on our sunshine yoga holiday Santorini to do as you please. Our venue for 2024 is a private villa with amazing 180 views of the Aegean Sea and a 20-minute walk into Thira. There is an outdoor pool with wonderful views to relax and read a good book.   Or you can walk into Thira where there are many cobbled little mews with shops, cafes and stunning views of the Caldera, relax by taking in the sights here. In Oia you can do the same, both are white-washed villages stacked on the volcanic hillside facing the Caldera that is infamous.

Included in the price is a 10km pilgrimage walk between Oia and Thira, culminating at sunset at Skaros Rock for sunset meditation and spectacular views. Also included is an optional wine-tasting of local Santorini wines amongst the vines at sunset.

We highly recommend a day sailing around the Caldera on a yacht (not included in the price) and this can be done privately or in a group booking with others to make things more affordable. For the more adventurous and to enjoy complete freedom, you can decide to hire a quad bike, scooter or car and take a drive around the Island and visit the volcanic black sandy beaches and historic sites.  It’s your sunshine yoga holiday so be as active or relaxed as you like.

There are two evening meals out, one night in Thira and one evening in Oia – it is an opportunity to experience the stunning sunsets over the Caldera! Enjoy moonlit dining with stunning views of the volcanic crater below amongst the white-washed villages draping over the hillside. Enjoy a choice of restaurants depending on your budget.

We bring our own chef and include all breakfasts, 5 evening meals and 3 lunches, plus of course, twice daily yoga either in our indoor yoga shala or outside to enjoy the views. Along with yoga twice a day and delicious food feel amazing on this beautiful Greek island.

Santorini is an expensive Island but also a bucket list destination. It is a beautiful place to visit so to make the most of it have some spending money and enjoy!

Beautiful Santorini

Santorini is a stunning Greek island located in the Aegean Sea, known for its breathtaking views, unique volcanic landscape and beautiful white-washed buildings with blue-domed roofs that have become a symbol of Greece.

One of the most iconic features is its caldera – a large, submerged volcanic crater that provides awe-inspiring views of the sea and surrounding islands, which can be seen from Oia and Thira.

This scenery provides the perfect backdrop for a yoga retreat in Santorini, with views of blue-domed churches, turquoise waters and burnt orange and black sandy beaches creating a serene and peaceful atmosphere.

During downtime, you can sit in stylish cafes and enjoy a meal or drink and watch some of the most spellbinding sunsets you will ever see and return back from some evening yoga in our private Santorini villa.

An enjoyable afternoon, once the heat has died down, is to walk 10km from Oia to Thira. Few people know that this mythical volcanic island is a real haven for hikers due to the numerous trails crisscrossing its land. This picturesque destination perfectly combines comfort with adventure and relaxation with exercise. Along this walk, there are views of the Caldera the whole way and you can end up on Skaros rock in Thira for sunset…which has a whole history of itself and was a garrison to protect the local people over hundreds of years. This trail is a must-do when on holiday in Santorini.

There are a lot of vineyards in Santorini as it is known for its wine. Try a wine-tasting experience with a selection of wines or even add on a pairing menu and some of the vineyards are situated with views of the Caldera and some are amongst the vines.

Another must-do excursion whilst on your yoga holiday in Santorini is an afternoon on a luxury catamaran…obviously! Enjoy sailing around the Caldera and visit the red and white beach, the hot springs at the centre of the Caldera and a seafood BBQ lunch with drinks. his can also be enjoyed at sunset but we recommend the daytime more.

 

About the yoga

Drawing from the energy of fire and water that surrounds you here in Santorini, with the volcano the Caldera and the Aegean sea, these elements will come into play during your yoga experience. From these elements be prepared for a powerful transformation.

In the mornings there will be a more dynamic yoga class to wake the body and mind with meditation and pranayama whilst overlooking the views of the sea below.

The evening classes will be yin and restorative yoga and held either in the yoga studio or outside. With 3 hours of yoga over 6 days, start to unwind from your daily life and release into relaxation and feel your energy revitalise over your week with us.  Any age, ability or level can enjoy this yoga practice.
