Silver Island is a privately owned, untouched dream island offering you the most unique eco yoga experience.
Situated a few miles from the mainland, Silver Island has been the home of the Christie family for 55 years and has opened its doors and sublime tranquility to those in search of a sense of inner peace and an escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
Silver Island is 60 acres of gently rolling hills, small idyllic coves, ancient old olive groves, cypress trees and wild flowers, the rhythmic sound of cicadas all surrounded by the crystal blue Mediterranean with glorious views every way you turn, all captivating to the eye.
Comprised of just a couple of white washed and blue shuttered traditional Greek homes, a church and lighthouse, Silver Island lends itself to a peaceful and rejuvenating experience. This is truly a magical place to practice the art and joy of yoga. A place you can unwind and merge with nature and self.
Silver Island Yoga is a small and exclusive retreat accommodating up to 10 guests in five beautifully decorated and inviting rooms. During the day the pebbled beaches, hidden coves and miles of pathways offer a chance for guests to spend time alone in quiet reflection between the two hour dawn and sunset yoga classes. We have invited the most beautiful of teachers whose ethos and way reflects our own.
The island’s accommodation consists of two beautifully renovated, traditional white washed, blue shuttered houses – the Main house, and the Villa. 5 twin rooms, with only space for 10 guests per retreat, making this an intimate and very personal experience.
The rooms are a mix of traditional features and contemporary design and are individual in shape, size, style. Tastefully furnished throughout with 100% cotton sheets, towels, beach wraps, hypoallergenic pillows and mosquito netting. Silver Island also provides 100% natural, locally made toiletries and insect repellent. All the rooms have built in cupboards and spectacular views of either the island or the crystal blue Aegean sea. All that you could need to be comfortable, unpack and make yourself at home.
The freshly prepared, Mediterranean-inspired, vegetarian cuisine is an ideal accompaniment to the divine detoxification treatments of Silver Island, rounding off this holistic haven just perfectly. Making use of local ingredients, guests can expect to feast on tasty fruit and vegetable, traditional feta cheese and even the island’s own extra virgin olive oil. Nutritious and delicious!
Offering a series of delightful dawn and sunset yoga classes, this relaxing 12 person retreat promises sublime tranquility to all those in search of a sense of inner peace – a space in which to unwind and merge with nature and self. Further to the fabulous yoga courses, a great emphasis is placed upon enjoying the island’s beautiful landscapes. Whether hiking across the island’s rolling hills or soaking up the sun from the pebbled beaches and coves, Silver Island Yoga is an experience which inspires peace and serenity.
Taking the time to go on a retreat is an important practice in self-care, as retreats are a brilliant way to break free of old patterns, release limitations, let go of fear and step into the space of courage and new possibilities, inspiring your path forward. A retreat can invite change and renew inspiration in our lives. It gives you the gift of time, time to focus on yourself, your needs and what makes you happy, reconnecting you to your life’s purpose.
In this day and age of busy-ness and distraction, taking time out with oneself just to notice, to restore, and to hold oneself with gentleness and kindness is the remedy and counterbalance. The practice of mindfulness, or present moment awareness is, simply put, a gift to oneself and an opportunity to reconnect with what is important.
A retreat is often a transformative experience that gives you time to restore, strengthen and heal. If you are feeling physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually stressed or burnt out you can pretty much guarantee that you will benefit from going on a yoga retreat. You can choose to transform anything in your life, and yoga retreats provide a great environment to support you as you do this, helping you align with who you really are.
