Between sessions there is time to discover the island and its natural magnificence, or simply to relax, sunbathe and swim in the comfort of the retreat setting.

The location

Crescent-shaped Santorini is considered the precious gem of the Aegean. With its white-washed clifftop villages set against the deep blue sky, multi-coloured beaches, volcanic vineyards, crystal clear waters, and world-famous sunsets, it is easy to fall under the spell of this magical, mythical island.

Your retreat home is nestled in a valley just below bustling Oia. Oia is a precious gem located high up on what is considered the balcony of Santorini, famous for its amazing views of the submerged caldera. Nestled just 5 mins from a quiet black-sand beach, and with walking distance of vineyards, churches and ruins, the retreat offers an opportunity to relax and unwind in a private setting, whilst offering the totality of a real Santorini experience.

The sublime setting of Santorini will inspire you for an incredible week of discovery. Life offers us so many moments of pure joy, don’t lets this one pass you by.

Accommodation

Hotel Pelagos is located at Baxedes of Oia in Santorini island, just 3km from the center of Oia village and 200m from the most beautiful beach of Oia, among vineyards and gardens where you will find all the beauty and calmness for your relaxation. In our spacious hotel surroundings you can walk between palm trees and fig trees and let your mind wander: in hammocks between the trees, by the pool, on the terrace or your own balcony.

On this retreat, the accommodations are beautiful whitewashed buildings with traditional features. Double studios, or rooms with a double and single bed are available for two sharing. We also have triple / quad rooms available with two twin beds and one double bed.

HELEN CLOUGH

I was always drawn to yoga, knowing the benefits for mind body and soul, but just couldn’t quite find the perfect place and time. As with most things in life, it came to me, and found me at the right time.

Finally, in Manchester, I had found a place to reconnect to my body on a much deeper level than I could ever have anticipated. I hadn’t connected to my body in such a freeing, liberating, creative, fun and playful way since my dancing days. I particularly loved vinyasa flow and Jivamukti.

And not long after, yin and restorative began to seep into my practice. I was hooked, and found myself craving more and more, always with a thirst for knowledge, my mind wanted to know more about Yoga and it’s fascinating history, until finally after my teacher convinced me I was ready, I signed up to do teacher training, here in Fuerteventura with Andrea Everingham at Azulfit.

What a location, the whole experience was truly first class and incredible. It wasn’t long, and didn’t take very much before my teaching days came back to me like they were yesterday and became more important to me than my regional manager role. I made the bold move to quit corporate, and move into teaching yoga full time.

It was an easy decision for me when a position at Azulfit came up. Having experienced first hand the home Azulfit creates, including their beliefs, ethics and professionalism, I instantly knew this was for me.

Luckily, they felt I fit too. Arriving back at Azulfit, I felt like I had come home. Now I get to do what I love daily, sharing the beautiful gift of reconnecting to ourselves, with wonderful souls in an incredible magnetic island.
