A couple of weeks ago, I went away to Greece. I try and have a sunny holiday every year (partly to top up my tan and mostly because I get pretty grouchy if I don’t see any sunshine!) but this year’s vay-cay was a little bit different than normal and instead of doing the usual beach/bars/sightseeing trip instead Iwent away on a week-long yoga retreat. I’ve really fallen in love with yoga over the last year or so and I secretly dream of learning to teach it one day (and maybe even starting my own yoga retreat…) so I decided to try something a little bit different and headed to Silver Island Yoga with one of my closest friends for a week of yoga, relaxation and general soul-nourishing!

I can safely say that it was the best week I’ve had in a very long time, if not ever! Everything about the retreat was perfect; from the surreal-ly beautiful island location to the delicious vegetarian food, to the weather and of course the amazing yoga sessions. The retreat is held on a private island off the coast of Greece, so there were just 14 of us on the island for the entire week  enjoying 4 hours of yoga practice a day and exploring the island’s beautiful beaches, wooded paths and turquoise seas! It really was a dream come true, there’s so much I could write about it here but nothing that would quite do it justice. I felt like I got so much from the trip; not just from the lovely people I met, but from the yoga lessons, meditation and general peace and relaxation that the trip gave me. As most of us do these days, I live a pretty non-stop life. Working in social media for a fast-paced company often makes it difficult for me to switch off and it was an amazing feeling to have some time to stop and just be.

I honestly felt like a different (and far more flexible!) person by the time the week was over. I was so sad to leave, but since I’ve been back I’ve been trying hard to hold on to the relaxed, open-minded feeling the retreat gave me and I’ve been keeping up with my yoga practice, although the view of a Manchester building site from my flat isn’t quite the same as practicing yoga overlooking the sea somehow! At least I’m trying I suppose… I’ve already made a pact with the friend I went with that we will go back to Silver Island in a few years time. I’m already dreaming about it!
