YOGA HOLIDAYS ON PAXOS

'AUTUMN YOGA WEEK': 28 SEPTEMBER - 5 OCTOBER 2015

HOLIDAY FULLY BOOKED!

This week of Scaravelli-inspired Hatha yoga, led by Anna Wolfenden of the Yoga Studio in Southwold, will provide an opportunity to develop a personal yoga practice in a beautiful setting. It will focus on finding ways to unravel the body to experience freedom in the postures and develop a deeper understanding of how yoga may be useful in everyday life.

Hatha yoga is primarily the study of postures (asana), breathing with awareness and attention (Pranayama) and relaxation. Anna’s yoga, inspired by the teachings of the late Vanda Scaravelli, is shaped by the attentiveness to the breath and the journey of undoing tension to reach the pose, rather than just doing the pose. As we learn to become more attentive to the breath and make friends with gravity, we are better able to find the poses without tension or resistance. This is indeed a yoga holiday which will provide the chance to practise more intensively in a beautiful place.

The ‘Autumn Yoga Week’ is suitable for all practitioners of yoga who have an interest in exploring different ways to practise; beginners are also very welcome. Suggested pre-holiday reading is Vanda Scaravelli’s Awakening the Spine.

Tuition will be based around five morning group yoga sessions, which will build on being centred and unravelling into postures to find strength, balance, flexibility and space. The early evening sessions will be slightly shorter and will focus on the principles of holding poses for longer periods with support, which is the way of moving into a quieter energy. There will also be plenty of time to explore Paxos or simply relax. Private yoga sessions will be available in the afternoons at additional cost.

Where you will stay: Accommodation will be in Villas Poseidon and Amphitrite and Villa Stelios. Each has its own private swimming pool and is about a 10-minute walk from the pretty village of Loggos, the smallest of the three coastal villages on Paxos.

Holiday Cost:  The holiday costs £575 per person, which includes tuition, accommodation in a shared twin room, transfers between Corfu airport and your accommodation on Paxos, dinner with wine (or soft drinks) in a local taverna on the first and last nights, pre-dinner drinks on three evenings and breakfast/brunch. There is a supplement of £125 per person for sole use of a twin/double room.

For full details of what is included in the cost of the holiday and of the accommodation, please see 'Yoga Holidays Further Information'.

Alternative accommodation and extending your holiday: If you already have your own accommodation, then it is usually possible just to join the group tuition sessions. We can also help you to find accommodation if you would like to stay somewhere other than our shared villas or would like to extend your holiday and spend a few additional days on Paxos or a few days on Corfu, either before or after the yoga course. Please contact us to discuss the options. 

To Book: Please read our Booking Conditions and the Important Information section of this website and then complete and submit an On-Line Booking Form. Our yoga holidays are open to people of all ages and abilities aged 18 or over. However, Paxos is a relatively hilly island and we therefore do not feel that they are suitable for anyone with walking difficulties.

Second Holiday/Course Discount: We will give you a discount of £40 if you book any two holidays or courses in our current programme.

Further Information: Do have a look round our website and, if you would like further information about any of our holidays and courses or about Paxos more generally, then please do not hesitate to Contact Us.
