I recently travelled to a Yoga retreat in Lesbos Greece, my very first experience of this kind and I was very apprehensive. The organiser had taken a lot of trouble to organise the whole trip and make it suitable for the mixed level of participants. This was not only the Yoga sessions but also the evening entertainment. Not sure why I was concerned because Fi and the rest of the attendees made it a great trip. I thoroughly enjoyed the Yoga which was different to my usual weekly classes, singing and bells, enhanced the classes and gave me a whole new experience.
Fi was the perfect host, very good Yoga teacher giving excellent consideration to the mixed ability in the class, my hamstrings will never be the same again!!! I experienced new exercises which tested my ability and the two sessions a day certainly tested my resilience and stamina. Her ability to satisfy all the various expectations of the group was first class and her beautiful voice made the relaxation parts even more enjoyable, apologies for the snoring!!
I would certainly go to another Yoga experience run by Fi and I really believe that I got a lot out of the trip more than I ever expected.
We had an absolutely wonderful week Lesbos. We bonded so well as a group and had such a fun and interesting time. The yoga centre is in the most beautiful setting – peaceful with fabulous views & a very pleasant walking distance from the local town, Molyvos, which is delightful with great restaurants, shops & a castle.
Fi is the loveliest person – kind, compassionate & fun. She made the yoga sessions enjoyable, varied and suitable for all abilities. She had clearly put a great deal of thought & effort into planning her classes. She demonstrates the poses so gracefully & takes you through step by step & is helpful & encouraging.
I would highly recommend the retreat, no matter your level of experience or age. You will come away with a greater feeling of well-being, happy memories & new friends!
