Sardinia played host to our very first yoga holiday seven years ago and just a quick look at Sardinia on Google Images is enough to understand why we head back to this beautiful island year after year!

Sardinia Yoga will be in Sardinia at the beautiful Grand Hotel in Porto Cervo until the 29 July and then we’ll be back there again from the 26 August to 30 September.

Sardinia Yoga opens its doors for the first time in 2017 tomorrow to a fresh new group of yogis and we couldn’t be more excited!

This will be our seventh year in Sardinia and we are once again based at the Grand Hotel in Porto Cervo – a fabulous family-owned beach front hotel in the north of this stunning island. The hotel has a pool, spa, gym and beautiful gardens and you’re mere steps away from the beautiful beach!

There’s usually about 25 yogis at any time across two different yoga classes and we now offer a choice of vinyassa flow and gentle hatha yoga every morning. Followed by a wonderful brunch shared by all the yogis and the teachers and get to know each other in an informal setting. The rest of the day is then yours to do as you wish – whether that be relax by the pool and get some sun or adventure off into the town and explore everything that the beautiful town of Porto Cervo has to offer!

You may only be there for a few days but we can promise you’ll leave with  memories to last you a life time!  So what are you waiting for? To book your spot in paradise or to find out more information just visit our website! We will be in Sardinia from 20 May to 27 July and 19 August to 30 September.

Porto Cervo is a beautiful Italian seaside resort in northern Sardinia and is home to Sardinia Yoga’s perfectly balanced yoga holidays.

We spend the summer at the Grand Hotel, a wonderful family owned beach front hotel with our yoga classes held every day on a shaded outdoor deck overlooking the beach. There’s a choice of Vinyasa flow and gentle Hatha yoga every morning.

The hotel itself has beautiful gardens, a pool, spa and gym and there’s lots of quiet, secluded spots to enjoy some well-deserved R&R in the sun.

We will be in Sardinia from 01 April to 20 May and again from 30 September till 04 November and we’d love for you to join us!

On Reflection

Jen Potter is one of our fabulous teachers at Sardinia Yoga. Not only is she a wonderful teacher she is also a great wordsmith and has kindly put together some thoughts on why a trip with Sardinia Yoga might be just the tonic!

‘Last May I taught in Mallorca with Sardinia Yoga.

A retreat is about getting away, ALMOST shutting down so you can recharge.

Even though we were in a hotel with other guests it felt like a retreat. The drive from the airport was amazing, windy roads through little villages and market squares.

Whether you go to a retreat or a yoga holiday you spend a good portion of the time reflecting. Reflecting is a type of meditation and we do it all the time.

When we are home, reflection time can be accompanied with occasional anxiety. Reflection can bring unwanted emotion which can lead to unhealthy habits. Or, we can feel overwhelmed and simply return to busy instead.

When you go on a Yoga Holiday there is time to reflect in a spacious manner and if it’s your preference – have a glass of wine every night. The first night we met in reception (optional) to go to dinner. I bonded with ladies from England and we spent every evening visiting restaurants and daytimes swimming or hopping on buses and renting cars.

It’s amazing how candid people can be when they get away from partners, children or jobs. The weird thing is – you can open up knowing you may never see these people again (everyone vows to stay in touch, but I suppose we rarely do).  

One lady came because she wanted to spend her time alone in reflection. That was fine. She loved the yoga and the chats at the breakfast table but then went off so that she could think about how to change her life back home.

On past Yoga retreats I’ve taught on, some people have come with relationship issues, looking for answers from the Yoga or teacher. Yoga Holidays are lighter because people are coming and going. It’s not the same folks for the entire week.

Others did group therapy over bottles of wine. Classic retreats are generally more intense. There is emphasis on the spiritual path of yoga, to come clean, to detox and eat lentils. But with Yoga Holidays it feels like your treating yourself to a spa break.

I always had enough time to be alone. I’d take a long walk around the marina to the Light House rock point. While looking out at the ocean, I realigned my heart and priorities. I asked stuff like: What hobby would enrich my life? How can I add this freshness to the weekday routine?

How can I bring vacation into my city life. Why can’t I just sit at a gorgeous cafe writing in my journal and see the beauty of my own neighbourhood?

I woke up the next day, the same questions came to mind. I find that I suddenly shift. This only happens when I take a break. My room had a lovely balcony. I could see how the locals lived – how they made their business..

At breakfast, I met new people. New conversations were delicious, like the food. The problem with buffets – we ate so much. Some had five cups of coffee before yoga… even though I warned being upside down might hurt.

A few women brought their partners. The husband wanted to learn about anatomy. We talked about his old injuries from football. He seemed very happy to learn and progress with that learning every day.

It was so easy and fun being in this place. I REALLY recommend these holidays. There are so many teachers to chose from. Try and find out what kind of Yoga you like to do and then enquire about the types of teachers.’

We will be returning for our third year in Majorca and doubling up to 2 decks and 2 yoga classes and returning for our seventh season in Sardinia!

20 May – 1 July in Croatia

26 August – 30 September in Sardinia

Don’t forget that you can tailor trips to all of our venues to suit exactly what it is that you’re looking for in a yoga holiday. There’s no set check in day, you can stay for a few days or even a week, we run extra yoga classes in the afternoon or you can enjoy the local markets or the beautiful beaches.

If you’d like more information on any three of the venues and the dates above don’t hesitate to fill in our contact form or drop us an email at bookings@sardiniayoga.com and we’ll answer any questions you may have or get you booked up onto your next luxurious yoga holiday.

Summer dreaming…

In the words of Ned Stark in Game of Thrones, ‘winter is coming’ and wonderful hot sunny days feel like an all too distant memory to us here at Sardinia Yoga and it’s making us feel nostalgic for sand between our toes, salty hair and a sun kissed glow.

In an attempt to warm ourselves up we’ve delved into our Instagram account @sardiniayoga and trawled through some of the amazing pictures that our guests tagged us in throughout the summer at Sardinia, Cala d’Or and Croatia and we wanted to share some of the best with you!

Now, if this has left you hankering for a yoga holiday next year then get in contact with us and we can help you to start planning your trip with Sardinia Yoga for 2017!
