June 30th – July 19th, 2019
I am pleased to be offering a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Retreat in summer 2019. This Yoga Alliance Internationally accredited teacher training program takes place in Kythira Greece. Kythira was chosen as the site of our immersion as it has long been an island of pilgrimages. Teacher training in a sense is a pilgrimage, a journey into the self that enables you to come back into the world with greater strength, clarity, patience and a deeper sense of peace.

Kithira Island is one of the most isolated islands in Greece. For those wanting to restore some balance to their lives, Semperviva’s yoga retreat on Kithira Island is the perfect choice.
In ancient times, Kithira was the foremost place of worship of the goddess Aphrodite, goddess of spiritual and romantic love. In more modern times, pilgrims journey to the Monastery at Myrtidia. This monastery was built in honour of the “Madonna of the Myrtle bushes” to whom many miracles have been attributed. Others pilgrimage to Kithira’s stunning coastline to simply meditate on the beauty of the sea and swim in its cleansing waters.
Breathtaking landscapes are a prominent feature on Kithira Island, which makes it the perfect spot for a relaxing yoga retreat and meditation. Numerous gorges are home to a variety of wildlife and birds, and late in the season golden eagles can be seen circling the skies above the precarious cliff top monastery of Agia Moni. The diverse scenery on offer means Kithira is ideal both for walkers and nature lovers whilst the more artistic can spend days searching for the perfect subject amongst the deserted villages and impressive stone bridges, remnants of past empires. Although the attractions of the interior are many, the beaches are still a favourite for most, and especially for those practicing yoga.
Kithira Island allows you to experience authentic Greece. It is a culture that still relies heavily on agriculture as a source of income, a fact which makes the locals proud. It’s locally produced honey made with thyme is renowned throughout Greece, as are the rare Semperviva Flowers (hence Semperviva Yoga) which grow wild on the steepest cliffs on the eastern end of the island.
