Corfu, also known as the Kerkyra in Greek, is a beautiful and lush island located in the Ionian Sea. Renowned for its stunning beaches, clear waters, and picturesque villages, it is the perfect destination for those seeking a rejuvenating and adventurous experience.
The island’s rich heritage is an experience in and of itself, having been ruled by various civilizations over the centuries, including the Byzantines, Venetians, French and British. This has left an unforgettable mark on the island, with a fascinating blend of architectural style and cultural traditions.
In addition to practicing yoga in Corfu, explore the vast beaches, from the sandy shores of Glyfada to the pebbled coves of Agios Stefanos. Stroll through the dark green olive groves in the valleys or the rugged pine and cypress forested mountainsides.
Come and get lost with us on this Corfu yoga retreat, with water sports, daily yoga, plenty of outdoor adventures and a warm Mediterranean climate.
"I’ve just returned from a week long yoga retreat in Corfu. It was FABULOUS! The yoga teacher was excellent. Every practice was different and pitched perfectly for the group and lots of modifications offered. The venue and food were 5 star. I feel so relaxed and nourished. Before the trip Adventure Yogi responded very quickly to all my questions and gave lots of information about the itinerary and what to pack etc. I’ve already booked another abroad retreat for next year!"

"This was my first yoga retreat and first time going abroad solo, so I was a little apprehensive however all of that quickly faded when I arrived in Corfu such a beautiful island! All of my fellow yogis were so lovely and supportive, the accommodation and food was amazing and most of all the yoga was just perfect! What was great is that we had the flexibility of whether we wanted to relax, explore or both! Marie is an incredible yoga teacher and person and she has such a positive vibe. Claire was also with us for a few days and she was wonderful too! Just a massive thank you to Adventure Yogi, the venue and everyone else who I met along the way. Corfu will always have a special place in my heart. Thank you xx
P.S I will definitely be booking more retreats with you!"
