Greece: A Yoga Paradise

Budget wise and value for money, Greece strikes the perfect balance. Greece’s economic challenges in the last decade have resulted in lower prices that means you can experience top-notch yoga training, luxurious accommodation, and mouthwatering food options that won’t break the bank.

Selecting low or shoulder seasons for your yoga retreat can significantly reduce costs with flights and accommodation being as much as 50% lower! Peak season is summer which runs from June to August. Although Greek summer is considered a dry summer with dry heat so keep in mind that August in Greece can get hot – really hot, with temperatures typically ranging between 38 to 45 Celsius!

Greece boasts a thriving yoga community with multi disciplined yoga styles. The majority of the instructors are registered yoga alliance certified instructors ensuring the quality of the courses are exceptional and yogis receive a well-rounded education that prepares you for a successful yoga teaching career. In recent years Greece has become part of the yoga teacher circuit and numerous world class instructors can be found offering a range of courses in some amazing locations.

From sun-soaked beachfront retreats in spectacular destinations such as Mykonos, Santorini and Corfu to cozy mountain hideaways like Olympus mountain, Greece offers a diverse range of accommodation options that cater to various preferences. You can choose to stay in a traditional Greek setting or more modern establishments, all of which provide a comfortable and rejuvenating environment for your training.
