About the teacher

Chetana has been on her yoga journey from a young age and has been teaching for 20 years. Her time spent in India, the heart of yoga, has made her approach in yoga a very spiritual one, although she remains down to earth. As a result her practice soulful, wise, philosophical and playful all at the same time. Her use of language is one who knows what she is talking about so you can feel confident in her ability and knowledge.

About the yoga

Drawing from the energy of fire and water that surrounds you here in Santorini, with the volcano the Caldera and the Aegean sea, these elements will come into play during your yoga experience. From these elements be prepared for a powerful transformation. The morning classes will be held a silent walk away to the blue and white church with views out to the Aegean Sea, absorbing the elements and feeling the sun warm up the day. A combination of hatha flow and inversions as the week goes by. The evening classes, more restorative and playful will be held in the yoga studio. With 3 hours of yoga over 6 days, start to unwind from your daily life and release into relaxation and feel your energy revitalise over your week with us.  Any age, ability or level can enjoy this yoga practice.

"Very relaxing hotel, wonderful staff and beautiful pool. The location is beautiful. Oia is breathtaking. The yoga and space were amazing. It was beautiful to practice at the church too. The holiday surpassed all my expectations. The quality of the yoga, amazing meditations and attention of the staff at the hotel. It was great having free evenings as there is so much to see and do we needed the flexibility to experience it all. Really well thought out."

"An oasis . Wonderful again. Fantastic atmosphere, delicious food, beautiful yoga space and massage room. ‘The boys’ looked after us so amazingly. And Santorini is amazing! "
Tor – London, UK
"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."
Charlie Spencer – Norfolk, UK
"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."
Jade Williams, Brighton, UK
