Yoga instructor Katerina Meintani of Athens, Greece, will be present at Almyra on 6-8 September to lead a Yoga Weekend Retreat. On Friday, guests will check into the hotel and attend a welcome ceremony where the weekend’s activities will be explained. On Saturday morning, attendees will meet at 7:30 for thirty minutes of pranayama—breathing exercises and poses. This is followed by an hour and a half practicing vinyasa yoga, where the instructor helps students move from pose to pose while controlling breath. The group then eats breakfast together before enjoying some free time. At 18:30, the group gathers once again for an hour and a half of meditation. Sunday begins with another thirty-minute session of pranayama. Next, the instructor leads the group for one and a half hours through a session of yin and yang balancing. The weekend closes with a group breakfast. The yoga retreat is open to practitioners of all levels. The package includes accommodation for two nights, breakfast and dinner at the hotel, and all yoga and mindfulness sessions (€320 per person double occupancy; €500 single occupancy); those wanting to attend only the yoga and mindfulness sessions will be charged €30 per person per day). The weekend retreat is a great way to step away from daily stress and rebalance for the week ahead. Contact Almyra on 26888700 for reservations.
