About Silver Island Yoga retreat
This gorgeous yoga retreat provides a complete get-away, set on a totally private island nestled in the azure waters of the Aegean sea. Stroll along the network of paths to the lighthouse for sunrise, practice yoga overlooking breathtakingly beautiful scenery, bathe in the crystal clear waters from the secluded pebbled beaches, visit the tiny church, paint or write in the shade of an olive tree or simply relax in a hammock in the warmth of the Aegean sun. End your day with a meditation on sunset rock watching the sky turn shades of pink against the blue mountains of Volos. An experience that will inspire peace, serenity and mindful living and of course a holiday of a lifetime.
Situated a few miles from the mainland, Silver Island is home to a unique yoga retreat run by sisters Lissa & Claire Christie.
Silver Island is a private island and has been the home of the Christie family for 50 years and now opens its doors and sublime tranquility to those in search of a sense of inner peace and an escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
Steeped in ancient history and mythology, Silver Island is 60 acres of gently rolling hills, small idyllic coves, ancient old olive groves, cypress trees and wild flowers, the rhythmic sound of cicadas all surrounded by the crystal blue Aegean Sea with glorious views every way you turn, all captivating to the eye. Silver Island earns its name from the shimmering leaves of over 2000 olive trees on this large working olive farm
Comprised of just a couple of white washed and blue shuttered traditional Greek homes, a church and lighthouse, Silver Island lends itself to a peaceful and rejuvenating experience. This is truly a magical place to practice the art of yoga, a place you can unwind and merge with nature and self.
Silver Island Yoga is a small and exclusive retreat accommodating up to 10 guests in 5 beautifully decorated and inviting rooms. During the day the pebbled beaches, hidden coves and miles of pathways offer a chance for guests to spend time alone in quiet reflection between the 2 hour dawn and sunset yoga classes. We have invited the most beautiful of teachers whose ethos reflects our own.
Meals are served communally under a large palm tree on the terrace. Lissa lovingly prepares food on the island from the freshest, seasonal vegetarian ingredients either sourced locally or grown on the island.
Silver Island Yoga is completely off the grid! We have no mains water or electricity, therefore pride ourselves on employing environmental best practices wherever possible. The facilities use a generator for electricity and solar power to harness the sun's energy to heat our water, which is collected and filtered from the winter’s rainfall. Being off the grid also means that this will be an opportunity for our guests to have a digital detox! Greek organic and biodegradable toiletries are also provided for our guests, as water is recycled for watering the gardens.
You are invited to join us for a truly magical, unspoiled, utterly relaxing yoga retreat and of course, a holiday of a lifetime.
