One of the highlights of our yoga retreats in Italy is the delicious food and the fantastic restaurants recommended by the locals. From small family-owned tavernas to high-end classy restaurants, it’s hard to get a bad meal.

These restaurants are all located on the charming island of Ortigia which lies at the very tip of Siracusa, you’ll find them tucked away in the peaceful pedestrian streets of this small island. Each one offers something special – pick one depending on your taste and you’ll be sure to have a great culinary experience!

Vinyasa yoga or Yin yoga – which has more benefits?
Many people who practice yoga regularly find themselves drawn to either a vigorous active practice, or alternatively to a more gentle restorative practice.
If you’re intrinsically a very energetic person, you’ll tend to seek out Vinyasa flow or Power yoga classes, maybe even a Bikram class to let go of that extra steam. Instead if you’re naturally a more sedentary person, you’ll find that your body is instinctively drawn to a slower practice, such as a Restorative yoga class or a Yin yoga class.
So which yoga practice is better for you?

Ever wonder why many of us abandon our new year’s resolutions so soon after we make them?
Perhaps we set goals that are unachievable, perhaps we set too many resolutions at once, or sometimes life just gets in the way and we don’t take the time to focus on them. So we just give up after a while and go back to last year’s routine. But this leaves us even more stressed, and we can’t ignore that feeling of failure and being stuck in a rut.
So this year, rather than making a long list of resolutions or setting goals which are too challenging, why not focus on three or four things that you know you can fit into your busy life. Things that can be done on a daily basis that don’t require an enormous commitment.
Just a few small steps and small achievements can do wonders, and can make you feel like you’re moving in the right direction, rather than trying to reach a goal which seems too daunting.
Greece is the perfect destination for a summer yoga retreat.
With its gorgeous beaches, delicious food, warm sunshine and charming towns full of character, you can’t beat Greece as the perfect summer destination and a fantastic place to explore on a yoga retreat. From the well-known islands of Mykonos and Santorini, to the more remote islands off the beaten path, there’s a yoga retreat for every taste.
It all depends on whether your goal is to get away from the hustle and bustle and find a quiet secluded place far away from everything, or perhaps you want to be pampered and spoiled at a luxury 5* hotel and not have to worry about a thing.
Some islands have international airports and are easy to get to, while others require a bit more planning and perhaps a boat transfer after your flight. But whichever you choose, you will surely fall in love with life on the Greek islands, and a yoga retreat is the perfect way to discover this magical place.
