Situated to the northeast of Athens and a few miles from mainland Greece, Silver Island is 60 acres of gently rolling hills, small idyllic coves, ancient olive groves, wildflowers and cypress trees. The island is surrounded by the crystal blue Aegean, with glorious views each way you turn. A truly a magical place to practice the art and joy of yoga. A place you can unwind and merge with nature and self.

Silver Island is owned and run by sisters Claire and Lissa Christie, and they have for the last ten years welcomed those in search of a sense of inner peace and an escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

Accommodation is provided in the beautifully decorated and inviting rooms of the whitewashed, blue shuttered traditional Greek homes.

In the morning, start the day with a pre-yoga snack of fruit, dried fruits, nuts, coffee and a selection of teas. Afterwards, convene for morning
yoga which takes place at the outdoor shala with all equipment provided, set in nature with the most magnificent sea views.

Following morning yoga, breakfast is served. This consists of a delicious Greek spread of yoghurt, fruit salad, nuts and
Lissa’s scrumptious granola. Other options include softly folded eggs or the famous banana pancakes.

Once you have eaten, it’s time to relax. Book a therapeutic treatment, have some beach time, go for a swim, snorkel or explore the many walking paths of the island retreat.

When you hear the church bell ring it’s time for lunch. All meals are family-style around two bigdining tables, indoors and outside on the terrace.

After a lazy lunch comes a quiet afternoon of utter relaxation. Find a hammock or hidden cove, or have a siesta on the beach or under an ancient oak or olive tree… time to just be. If you’re feeling creative, there’s an art cupboard to help yourself to, or more active guests can circumnavigate the island on a kayak or a SUP.

The afternoon yoga session is held as the sun begins to set, and this class is usually slower and more meditative.

In the evening, enjoy dinner under the stars with the sharing of stories, laughter and a glass of vegan wine, if you wish, around the fire pit. To end off the perfect day, star gaze in the clear night’s sky.

Silver Island has experienced hand-picked teachers bringing their unique offerings – often a blend of many styles of yoga studied over the years. This allows Silver Island Yoga to offer retreats that are suitable for all levels, from total beginners to experienced practitioners, as the teachers are highly skilled at ensuring everyone gets the most from their week, in the safest and most enjoyable way.

Silver Island Yoga is a sustainable eco-retreat and completely off the grid. There’s a solar farm, batteries and a backup generator for bad weather days. All water is collected, stored and recycled. And even the complimentary toiletries are natural and biodegradable – made by a previous Greek client and chemist to capture the essence of the island in the products.

A unique aspect of Silver Island Yoga’s offering is the digital detox, which means guests can truly disconnect and immerse themselves in nature without the distractions of Wi-Fi.

Silver Island Yoga is about barefoot luxury, nature, wellness, transformation and rejuvenation. Lissa and Claire’s wish is to create an experience that inspires joy, peace, abundance, serenity and mindfulness in an uninhibited, welcoming, family atmosphere.
