Corfu in September/October 2024
Indian Summer Yoga Holiday Corfu September/October 2024
Enjoy a week's yoga holiday in Corfu staying at an eco-conscious organic farm estate, a short walk from the beach in the north-west of the Island, enjoy yoga twice a day and lots of fun excursions.
Come and join us on our September/October yoga holiday in Corfu, Greece. It is a beautiful Island with lush green hills and calm turquoise waters, and it is a great time to visit. It is still a really warm temperature of around 23 degrees so you can choose to relax by the pool or the beach but it is also cool enough to go walking and biking and exploring.
If you feel like total relaxation, stay around the pool and read a good book or walk a short 10 minutes to the local beach for a sea swim or try out kayaking and paddleboarding. If you feel like being more active the venue has bikes and can arrange a biking tour. Enjoy one walk day included in the price and see some beautiful views. There are a few days of exploring already included in the price.
When you arrive, enjoy an orientation walk of the local area and explore the grounds that are also an organic farm, growing specifically Kumquat – as well as seasonal vegetables and olives. The week will follow with beach days, pool days, a cooking class, a trip to explore Corfu town followed by dinner out and a day exploring an old village called Afiona that takes you to the iconic bay of Porto Timoni where you can relax on the beach after a 40-minute walk down the cliffs to the spectacular bay where you can relax for the afternoon. Your week’s yoga holiday in Corfu can be as active or as relaxed as you like.
Our venue is brand new and has been designed and built in an eco-conscious way, following the guidelines of Green Key whose criteria ensure the highest standards of sustainability within tourism. This is important to us here at AdventureYogi as we search to find more venues like this. It is also an organic farm and the food that you will eat will be straight from the garden.
Enjoy yoga twice a day in the yoga shala and the day is yours to do as you please.

Time to Dine
Corfu, also known as the Kerkyra in Greek, is a beautiful and lush island located in the Ionian Sea. Renowned for its stunning beaches, clear waters, and picturesque villages, it is the perfect destination for those seeking a rejuvenating and adventurous experience.
The island’s rich heritage is an experience in and of itself, having been ruled by various civilizations over the centuries, including the Byzantines, Venetians, French and British. This has left an unforgettable mark on the island, with a fascinating blend of architectural style and cultural traditions.
In addition to practicing yoga in Corfu, explore the vast beaches, from the sandy shores of Glyfada to the pebbled coves of Agios Stefanos. Stroll through the dark green olive groves in the valleys or the rugged pine and cypress forested mountainsides.
Come and get lost with us on this Corfu yoga retreat, with water sports, daily yoga, plenty of outdoor adventures and a warm Mediterranean climate.

Men & Women
It was lovely that it wasn't a 'detox' retreat, but a holiday with yoga. You can eat and drink what you like, and the emphasis was very much on being kind to yourself. That included many chocolate milkshakes around the pool for some as the week progressed, alongside the customary greek salad of course.

Loved it. Beautiful yoga shala and pool. Would definitely love to come back.
Pippa – Sri Lanka
The holiday far exceeded my expectations. I am new to come on holiday by myself but immediately felt at home, looked after and part of a family. The food was delicious and have loved relaxing and reflecting in the beautiful garden in the hotel. Yoga was wonderful. I can't believe how much I have learned about myself and yoga in 10 days. I am going home so uplifted and happy. Thankyou!
Sandy – Yoga holiday
Highly recommended and will seek out AY again for the kind of purity it offers. Every respect. I now feel nurtured, cared for and motivated to keep this up. Amazing experience all round!! Thank you so much.
Lucy – UK retreats
I feel really relaxed and much more healthy. Nice people, very nourishing but also time to do nothing and nice that you get yoga on both arrival and departure days.

I spent a week in Greece this summer with Adventure Yogi, and loved every second. I was apprehensive before going because I was a complete beginner (and didn't really know my Downward Dog from my Cobra), and 9 weeks pregnant (and full of nausea). But, I needn't have been nervous - I was completely spoilt by the yoga teachers, who were on hand with many adjustments to make sure the baby was safe and I didn't feel awkward at all about being inexperienced. The whole yoga experience was unbelievably fulfilling, much more so than I could have imagined.
