Try some different Yoga styles and techniques this holiday
Small groups mean personal attention
When we say our Yoga holidays are all about you, we mean it. Our class sizes are small enough that we can give you individual attention, ensuring that you maintain the correct alignment in your postures and helping you to make adjustments where necessary. This way, you will get maximum benefit not only during your time with us, but also for your future Yoga practice.
Every day, we offer a mix of classes at different levels: beginner, improver, improver plus and mixed level. Also see our sample schedule. All our classes are designed to be progressive and will enable you to begin or continue self practice at home.
Gentle Hatha-based Yoga classes
These classes are a great introduction to Yoga and do wonders if you want to relieve stress, improve your overall well-being and relaxation. Our Hatha classes are suitable for all levels. Based on the Satyandanda Yoga tradition, they concentrate on the learning of traditional asana (postures), breathing, mindfulness and listening to the body.
Unlike our flow based classes (in which we flow through poses connected by sun salutations), in this class a simpler and slower sun salutation is practiced to warm the body up after simple joint-freeing exercises. Then the emphasis shifts to longer held poses, core strength, flexibility, balance and concentration. The classes finish with the opportunity to explore some basic meditation techniques.
Our Yoga Nidra classes are a great way to complete your day. Yoga Nidra facilitates deep relaxation and rest; these classes are suitable for all levels.
A half hour guided meditation is given while you are lying in a restorative reclining position. These classes are so relaxing, the challenge is not to fall asleep!
Benefits of Yoga Nidra sessions include releasing muscular, emotional and mental tension, reducing stress, enhancing memory and learning capacity, increasing will power, awakening creativity and releasing repressed matter.
Recover from injury by improving your alignment
If you are dealing with any health conditions or injury, we always recommend exploring our alignment-focused classes (Satyananda and Modified Primary) before venturing into the flowing-style class. This way, you can learn which modifications will help keep your practice safe and enjoyable. If you are unsure, just have a chat with one of our Yoga instructors when you arrive; they can surely guide you in the right direction.
Yoga and so much more
The Yoga classes of Healthy Options can truly compete with the best of them when it comes to quality standards. Yet we are not a 'resort style' holiday where improving your healthy is serious work. Instead, we offer activity based holidays with a strong focus on Yoga and Pilates. But there is so much more to do at our holiday base! See the list of trips and activities.
Praise for Healthy Options Yoga Holidays in Greece
Standard of care from all instructors; exceptional - Teresa
I wanted to say a big thank you to you and everyone at Healthy Options. You were all very helpful with every query I had before my holiday and I know you all spent a very difficult day on the 8th October trying to sort our return journey, when the Greek air traffic controllers threatened to strike. I almost hoped that we would have an extra day in Syvota, as I had such a great holiday, but on reflection the journey home would have been a "challenge" if they really had been on strike. It was a really brilliant holiday, and the small group made it easy to make friends too. Holly and Adam were excellent, both at leading the group in a relaxed and professional way, and ensuring that everyone was kept informed at all times of all the activities and events as they occurred. They were also very good instructors, as were all the instructors involved with all classes. There was so much to do, and as well as the yoga and other classes. I especially enjoyed the paddle boarding, boat trip, river walk and rafting. I really liked the hotel and its location next to the sea, and the staff were all friendly and helpful. The sunsets were beautiful. The pool surroundings were very attractive and the loungers very comfortable. The pool was very cold, which was the only small complaint. It was warmer in the sea! I felt fantastic after my healthy and relaxing holiday, and all my friends wanted to know what had made me look so well and relaxed. I have told them all to book with you, and hope you will send me a brochure for next year. - Linda Boiling
