What you can expect on your Healthy Options holiday.

At our base in Syvota we have been offering our Yoga and much more holidays for 3 years.  This has given us plenty of time to find some of the best local activities and offer the experiences to our clients as part of the Healthy Options Programme. 

The Healthy Options Centre in Syvota is located at the lovely Mega Ammos Hotel which sits in a tranquil location right by a lovely beach just outside the resort of Syvota.  Breakfast is included which sets you up for the day's classes and activities or simply lazing by the pool – as always with Healthy Options -  it is your choice!

Healthy Options Syvota is open throughout May and June and then reopens in September, so if you would like to experience one of our holidays in Syvota there are a still a few spaces left in June.

Here are a few details of the more adventurous activities on offer:
There is a weekly trip in a traditional Greek boat around the smaller offshore islands where you will get to chance to stop for a swim or a spot of snorkelling and meditation on a stunning and unspoiled beach, before returning to the beautiful harbour. 

Venture into the foothills of the Pindos mountains.  On this trip you will get the chance to enjoy the fresh water springs at Acheron at the site that Greek mythology names as the ‘Entrance to the Underworld.’ You can also try walking through the river to some beautiful cliffs and then, if you’re feeling adventurous, go rafting or kayaking down the river. It’s quite simply a wonderful day out! 

“Perfect mixture of activities to do and time to relax. The atmosphere is so calm and peaceful - I'll be returning home so incredibly refreshed and rejuvenated.”
Sahra Watkin, Teacher

The Healthy Options team always keep in mind that this is your holiday, so you are free to participate with any activities, Yoga, Pilates and fitness classes as much as you choose to.  Unlike yoga retreats there is no pressure to be up at the crack of dawn and you can eat or drink whatever you choose.  The great thing about Greece is that there is an abundance of healthy Mediterranean food available everywhere you go so it is easy to make Healthy Choices.

“Ticks all the boxes. The relaxing and friendly atmosphere. The friendly and dynamic people within the group. The instructor's knowledge, their ease of teaching and their interest in the individuals enabled a wonderful bond. My two weeks in Syvota with Healthy Options were perfect and exactly what I needed.” Jo, Manager of a Countryhouse

These Healthy Options Clients have just completed the river rafting trip and were keen to share their experience of Healthy Options.
