October is the best month to be in Lefkada! The sun is hot but not too hot and the seawaters still keep their summertime temperature. The island is getting into its silent mode after the crowded summer.

Rejuvenate your body and mind by joining the Yoga & Massage Autumn Retreat in Kastro Maistro, nearby the beach of Agios Ioannis. Each morning begins with pranayama and meditation to help cleanse our mind and connect with our inner self. A variety of yoga classes and massage workshops twice a day create the perfect opportunity to work on your flexibility and strength but also provide you with simple massage techniques to take care of yourself and others in your daily life. Throughout the group sessions you receive regularly the touch of Thai massage by your instructor while an individual 30’ Thai massage treatment makes also part of your retreat experience.

Elli Kamilali is an experienced yoga instructor (E-RYT 200 Yoga Alliance) and a highly trained Thai massage professional (Old Medicine Hospital, Chiang Mai - Lotus Palm, Montreal - Thai Hand, Amsterdam). She offers yoga classes accessible to all, with modifications and props, and massage treatments tailored to individual needs. She is the author of the book Thai Massage Handy Techniques.

Special guest: Elli’s colleague, friend and “Thai massage soul mate” Julia Planicka from Vienna. Julia will give a Detox workshop. She will also be available for Thai massage treatments bringing along her special Tok Sen tools and skills! 

Classes are instructed in English. Elli speaks also Greek and Italian. Julia speaks also German.
