Yoga and Meditation Holiday at the Iconpainter

May 18-25 2019 and October 12-19 2019


Let go of stress and reconnect to your peaceful centre on a Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation holiday, in the perfect setting of the Iconpainter Villas, Koroni, Messinia.

Hatha Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation are guaranteed to help guide you towards taking your foot off the stress pedal and getting back in touch with the present moment!

Throughout the week, we'll be slowing down and calming the busy mind with meditation and taking care of the body with daily Yoga and relaxation.

The location, The Iconpainter Villas,  set around a beautiful infinity pool in the peace and quiet of olive groves and vineyards with sea views, clean air and the warmth of the October sun - provides the perfect setting in which to relax, refresh and allow your self to slow down.

Your guide for the week is Cath Newman. Cath writes “I teach Hatha Yoga - and my aim is to help each participant to work safely within their own comfort zone. I make sure that the body is properly warmed and limbered before performing Asana (yoga postures) and I will offer beginner up to advanced versions of each posture. In Hatha Yoga we work slowly and mindfully with full attention on the breath and body and we never push or force the body beyond its comfortable stretch”.

If you are a beginner, this holiday will introduce you to two of the most ancient, wholesome and proven ways in which to take better care of yourself.

If you are experienced, this holiday will help you to deepen your practice or give it a kick start if it has stalled.

Other optional activities include a guided walk with Michael to a local village and  visit to an old olive mill, or an informal cooking class with Maria.
