Wellness & Yoga

We are delighted to have a symbiotic relationship with Yoga Garden Retreats owned by Nina Fowkes and Claire Skinner. Their Greek retreats are mostly held at our glorious Rou Estate perched on a hillside nestled among the cypress and olive trees on North East Corfu which was restored and designed by Dominic & Claire Skinner

Earth Awakening Retreat

With nature in full bloom and nourished by the sunlight, colour and warmth, we will spend a week dedicated to yoga, pranayama, ritual and meditation to celebrate casting off layers from the introspective colder months.  Re-setting and rebalancing our nervous systems, we will tune ourselves to ancient wisdom traditions, amplifying our natural energies and opening to new possibilities and reconnecting to our true nature. In the midst of the ancient and vibrant energy of The Rou Estate, we will shake it all up and wake up, ready for the Summer months ahead. All levels welcome.

Forces of Nature Retreat

We are surrounded by a wild and wonderful energy connecting us to the natural and celestial world. Immerse yourself at The Rou Estate, surrounded by the forces of nature-engage with them, feel empowered by these energies & feel the connection with these forces during the transition into the phase of the Summer Solstice. On this beautifully crafted retreat you will be guided by two specialists in their fields: Senior yoga teacher Toni Roberts & wellness and ritual advocate, Katy Theakston of The Owl & The Apothecary.  On this retreat we will work with the creative energies of Earth, Air, Fire, Water, harnessing their power through yoga practice, meditation and ancient rituals.
