Introducing the First Yatra Yoga Camp on Rhodes
With great enthusiasm we are pleased to announce our first Yatra Yoga camp for all ages in a wonderfully peaceful location on our beautiful island.
Imagine camping in the shade of an old olive grove with a magnificant mountain backdrop, and nothing much but the sounds of nature around you. Up in Salakos the air is pure, fresh and full of prana to bring life back into your hearts and lungs
We are a small (yet rapidly growing) yoga community living here, with great aspirations for things to come in 2012 and beyond. One of our visions involves having our own environmental retreat space, … and so with this in mind we thought it was time to begin gathering people and getting on with our ideas using spaces provided by like minded people.
Below you will find information about where, when, how and what we are organising, although some of this still remains a secret to us !! ……. Part of the plan is to go with the flow of what nature offers us, and with the people who join us
With our hearts and minds set on a week of wonderful sharing with like minded souls, our intention is to ensure you have a great time, and we encourage you to come prepared to join in with our organised events and be open to all possibilities !!!
There will be, Yoga classes indoor and out, beach & swimming time, local walks, music and meditation, chi gong , healing, Thai Chi, massages and other therapies all available for you to enjoy in a free or affordable way.
THE CAMP SITE & SURROUNDS
Located in fields surrounding the tiny mountain village of Salakos, our host Pedros’s land is a charming and peaceful venue for our event. Located at the foothills of Profitis Ilias, the front of the house opens up towards hilly olive-fields. The sweetness of the sourrounding nature invites exploration, with wonderful trails in each direction. As you rise up the valley, you will then be met with views of the endless blue sea surrounding Rhodes.
A 5 minute drive will bring you to the peaceful beaches of the west coast and 15 minutes over the mountain to the larger beaches on the east coast.
5 minutes walk down the country track you will arrive at the Suedco farm a wonderful cafe and events venue.
10-15 mins walk away you will find yourself in the mountain village of Salakos, a sleepy little spot with an abundant array of cafes and tavernas in the main square.
For info about Yoga-classes plus upcoming extra classes held by guest-teachers, see the Schedule page. Daily meditations, relaxations, and kirtan will also take place (All classes are included in the price of your stay)Just take a look at our teachers page to see some of the local teachers that will be involved. (Chi Gung, Thai Chi, healing and alternative therapist will also be available, see the schedule for more info)
Classes will be held, in the very likely case of good weather on the rooftop of the house, or otherwise inside in the nearby buildings of the Suedco-complex. Other opportunities include joining walking meditations & classes on the beach.
There will be possibilities to pitch your own tents as well as using tents provided by us. Apart from that a limited amount of sleeping-places (double-rooms/dorm) can be arranged inside the house. For the even more comfortable version you could also rent a room in the little guest-house/hotel in Salakos village (we’ll be happy to help you with the arrangement).
Simple vegetarian food will be available either on the camp-grounds or in the nearby Suedco-complex for reasonable prices. Breakfast buffet of cereals and fruit will also be available daily at the house. Breakfast 2, Dinner 5 & Light evening meal 3 euros.
The choice is really yours, rent a car for the week from the airport to be as independant as you like, or take a taxi from the airport and catch a ride with any cars and people on the move during the week by sharing towards petrol. There is a twice daily bus service into town from Salakos, which passes by the coast too.
