Yoga Holidays

Do you need a break from the relentless daily stress of life? Perhaps you’re looking for a way to slow down and let go of all that stuff that’s dragging you down. Or need a little pampering. Out to Explore Yoga holidays do just that. You’ll learn ways to reduce stress; simple practices that you can continue and build on at home. You’ll reconnect your senses and find the balance you need to be your happy self. As well as sharing unique experiences together exploring the island you’ll have your own personal time to do as you please. We’re always available to share tips. Plus, you’ll feel that Mediterranean sun and sea air on your skin.

An Out to Explore Yoga holiday apart from nurturing inner growth also reflects the spirit of adventure we associate with explorers, the excitement of discovery combined with a desire to leave nature undisturbed, to experience and respect local culture. We understand that a holiday isn’t necessarily dependent on sun, beach and beer.

  • Out to Explore Zen Yoga Late Summer Experience.
    5th to 12th September 2021


    September is without doubt one of my favourite months of the year. The hot and hectic tourist season peaks in August, bringing a sense of calm in September. Cooler evenings contrasting with the September sun are perfect for outdoor practice and quieter exploration. Late summer is the season to engage with the Earth element in our yoga practice, working with the Spleen and Stomach meridians to develop our feelings of stability, building abundance of compassion and care, shedding insecurity and incessant worries. We’ll take our yoga and meditation practice to some stunning locations around the island giving us the opportunity to truly explore.

    What’s included?

    • Twice daily Yoga/Meditation classes held in the Zen Yoga Studio and in various locations around the island including a sunrise beach session and sunset cliff top session. Classes are suitable for all levels of experience including beginners. You’ll find it refreshingly relaxed and informal.
