With endless mountains and a magical blue green coastline seen through olive, cypress, pine, oak and carob trees, Ithaca represents the return to the haven, discovery and fulfillment.
In the ancient home Odysseus, we return both outwardly to this magical land and inwardly as we practice our return home to ourselves. The journey inward and exploration outward will be supported by amazing yoga teacher Taylor Eyewalker, our cozy home at Itha108, delicious and nourishing meals and our sweet community that gathers together as if we were all called to be in this one magical place at the same time together. The island boasts plenty of hiking as well as mountain bike trails with beautiful vistas and inspiring landscapes.
Food at Itha108 is fresh, sumptuous and made up of local produce. All vegetables are organic and sourced from the best of what Ithaca and neighboring Kefalonia has to offer. Plentiful, home-cooked menus blend traditional Greek cuisine with a contemporary style. For the retreats, mainly vegetarian food is promoted, although freshly caught fish is available on request.
We’ll journey to this Greece Yoga Retreat from all over the world to this Greek oasis to nourish and restore. And don’t be discouraged by the seemingly pricey flights from the US! By flying into Athens and booking a separate flight to Kefalonia, options become much more affordable! See more on the FAQ page.
The retreat overlooks the sea on to the rugged East side of Kefalonia the peninsula of Fiskardo. Pollution-free, the views are stupendous, and the air and climate are perfect for growing outstanding fruit. Organic olive oil has been produced on Ithaca as long as anyone can remember. The olives are cold-pressed by the local press to preserve all their healthy qualities, and undergo only the one pressing. The acidity level is below 0.1%. The oil is pure and translucent, a beautiful pale green in colour, slightly sweet to the taste because of its low acid content, a little peppery, rich in Vitamin E, and a perfect accompaniment for salads, pasta dishes or dipping in bread.
Quality sleep is more than just another factor promoting good health, well-being and longevity; it is, in fact, so important, it becomes a fundamental prerequisite. At Itha108, all the mattresses are COCO-MAT, a Greek company based in Xanthi that specialises in natural lifestyle products.Restful sleep can improve physical, mental and emotional health. It enables the body to restore its energy and the mind to relax. A good night’s sleep is the greatest reward for the efforts of the day that passed, and the best way to prepare for the following day.
