It’s been over a decade since Healthy Options started offering our ‘Yoga and much, much more’ holidays. Our mission has always been to make sure our clients return home feeling more relaxed and reinvigorated than ever … and with a suntan to boot! Our goal was to create a Yoga holiday for those who didn’t want to wake up at the crack of dawn or feel restricted in any way about what they might choose to eat or drink.Above all we never forget that it’s your holiday!
Choose from two, stunningly beautiful Greek island settings for your Healthy Options holiday. The question is; how do you choose the one that suits you best?
Both centres offer the same high standards of Yoga, Pilates and other fitness classes, with a variety of styles suitable for all abilities. We offer different classes for beginners and for those with more experience. And as well as an enticing selection of other activities (see below) you also get a free, half hour, relaxing massage included in your holiday package.
Our original Healthy Options location is in Vassiliki, on the beautiful island of Lefkas – our accommodations are right on the beach with views over to the nearby islands of Ithaca and Captain Corelli’s Cephalonia.
Our newer and slightly calmer and more luxurious setting for our second centre is at the charming fishing village of Syvota, and based at the excellent Mega Ammos hotel, where the beach offers stunning views from the mainland over to the nearby islands of Paxos and Corfu.
As in Vassiliki, you can try paddle-boarding, take guided bike rides and walks along the coast line exploring a myriad of small rocky coves and beaches, but here we also organise a boat trip around the smaller offshore islands stopping for a swim or a spot of snorkelling and a little sunbathing, before returning to the beautiful harbour.
And once a week, you’ll get a chance to get off the beaten track and visit the real Greece. You’ll venture into the Pindos mountains to enjoy the ‘fresh’ springs at Acheron, and if you’re feeling adventurous, go rafting or kayaking down the river. It’s quite simply a wonderful day out.
As with all Healthy Options holidays, the choice is yours! Although that said, if you really can’t make your mind up, you could always join us for a twin centre holiday, spending a week in Vassiliki and another in Syvota.
Have a look at our weekly sample schedule for our original location at Lefkas (Vassiliki) or our new location of Syvota.
