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.
This is our first year running retreats from Corfu so have a look below at some of our reviews from other destinations to see how we do there instead!

"I had a fantastic break with Adventure Yogi, Marie started us off gently but by the end of the 4 days, newbies were embracing their Vinyasa flows. The retreat was enhanced with 2 day trips out, as many swims in the pool or lake as we wanted and great vegan/veggie meals. I hope to be back soon."
