Radiant Yoga Retreats: Kefalonia, Greece
We recently returned from our week-long yoga retreat to Kefalonia, Greece, a beautiful island located off the west coast of Greece in the Ionian sea. Our retreat group consisted of 28 yogis, and even a few non-yogis, from the Kansas City area. Radiant Yoga owner Angie Eckenroth partnered with her friend Leah Morgan, owner of Core Balance Yoga Center in Lee's Summit, Mo., for this retreat. This was Radiant Yoga's third yoga retreat to Europe, and the first yoga retreat to Greece. And yes, it was amazing!
Every morning started with an active yoga practice, followed by breakfast. Every day there was an activity planned ranging from group hikes through the Kefalonia hills, exploring other parts the island, riding in row boats to see inside Melissani cave, and even a day trip to the nearby island of Ithaca ("Odyssey," anyone?) for shopping and lunch. Evenings ended with a restorative/yin yoga practice followed by dinner, a Greek food buffet. It's easy to say that it was hard to come home after all of this.
If you're interested in taking your yoga practice abroad, you're in luck! We are traveling to Italy this October for our third Tuscany yoga retreat. The retreat dates are October 13-20th. For more information, please visit our retreat site here.
