The relaxing yoga holidays are based at the four-star Grand Hotel in Porto Cervo, a small town to the north of the island on the Costa Smeralda. This stretch of the Sardinian coastline is widely regarded as one of Italy’s most impressive. The nearby resort of Baia Sardinia is a popular tourism hotspot, boasting clear waters and fine sandy beaches.
Sardinia Yoga is noted for being one of the few places in the world where yoga is practiced by the beach. Each day of a Sardinia Yoga holiday will begin with a two-hour session of ashtanga-style yoga on Sardinia Yoga’s private beachfront yoga space. The highly qualified and experienced panel of teachers will include Charlie Taylor-Rugman, who trained with the ashtanga yoga master K. Pattabhi Jois, British Wheel of Yoga certified Claire Porter, multi-skilled instructor Diana Gomez, and Katie Courts, who is also a trained nutritional therapist.
Sardinia Yoga holidays are unique in allowing guests to combine invigorating yoga sessions with an exciting range of optional activities, including Italian cookery classes, mountain biking, Italian language tuition and water sports. These activities are organised in conjunction with trusted partners of the Grand Hotel, relieving visitors of the stress of making their own arrangements.
The week-long yoga holidays will run for a six week period between 7 May and 18 June, coinciding with the most favourable temperatures for outdoor yoga. Accommodation is available for single, double or twin occupancy, with discounts available on double or twin rooms if only one yoga place is required.
Austrian yoga-lover Elisabeth, who went on a Sardinia Yoga holiday in 2010, said of the experience: “I loved the combination of: perfect setting, energetic yoga experience and being free the rest of the time.”
