Matangi Yoga Holidays
If you are looking for a beach holiday in combination with yoga, Matangi has designed the perfect fit for you! You will be staying at the beautiful apartment complex Kumara, just 50 meters from Agios Georgios (San George) beach, in the north west corner of Corfu. San George has a 2km long sandy beach and is considered one of the most beautiful beaches of Corfu. The restaurant next to the house will provide you with a delicious, fresh, vegetarian breakfast every day. Every morning there is a 90-minute yoga session on the beach or the house terrace, and every day you will have the chance to have fun and get to know the real Corfu as there is a wide range of activities available for everyone. The idea is to feel like you are a guest of a Greek family who will take care of you and make sure you have a good time!
Matangi is a certified yoga teacher who will be helping you to start your day nicely, with some yoga on the beach, followed by a dive in the sea.
After that it’s off to breakfast and then it’s up to you. You can participate in afternoon yoga and meditation classes or in one of the group activities Matangi organises, such as a boattrip to explore the stunning coastline and little beaches of the area, organised walks around the area, take a shopping trip to Corfu town, enjoy a relaxing massage, do some windsurfing with Benni or explore the island on your own. You are also free to choose if you eat your lunch and dinner at the complex taverna or go on a culinary adventure around the area.
Next to the regular program, there are also about 20 retreats taking place at Kumara during the season. The retreats are facilitated by certified teachers doing different types of yoga, like Yin-Yang yoga, Mantra yoga, Ayurveda, Yoga and Painting, Aerial yoga and many more. During a retreat the program is usually not as free as normally, but that depends on the specific retreat and teacher. Whether you participate in a retreat or just take the basic yoga holiday package, Matangi and Benni will always be there to help you with advice and tips , and to make you feel at home.
There are different options as far as accommodation is concerned. There are self-catering apartments with a kitchen, which are shared, and rooms with a fridge and water boiler that can be booked individually. The price for a week of Yoga holidays, including accommodation, breakfast, yoga every morning and a long organised walk, ranges from 350€ per person in a shared apartment in the low season, to 550€ per person for a private room in the high season. It’s also possible to book a second week without Yoga at a lower price. During retreats the prices are a little higher, and depend on the individual retreat.
