February 12, 2015 | Healthy Options – Yoga and Pilates holidays
With professional instructors, a beautiful beach setting and a jam-packed, but flexible, exercise programme, Healthy Options’ new fitness and wellbeing holiday on the Greek Island of Lefkas is a perfect way to achieve those summer beach-body goals.
Taking place in May, the two special fitness weeks are guaranteed to kick you into shape, with strengthening and toning classes using Swiss balls and dumbbells, energetic cardio sessions, plus simple nutritional advice provided each day. Whatever your level of fitness, the highly experienced instructors will ensure that you are in good hands at all times, offering expert tuition and advice whenever needed.
Running alongside the regular Healthy Options’ programme, which operates from May to September, enjoy daily Pilates and yoga classes in a variety of styles, including Hatha (meditation, yin stretching and restorative yoga), Hatha Flow (dynamic, well-rounded classes with meditation, Asana and Pranayama) and Nidra (calming and rejuvenating classes that enable deep relaxation and rest).
With a flexible itinerary, guests can dip in and out of classes as much as they choose. When not exercising, why not treat yourself to a spa facial treatment incorporating Thai and Ayuvedic influences and a deluxe head massage with warmed oils? Alternatively, take a relaxing guided cycle ride through the beautiful countryside, or have a go at sailing and stand-up paddle boarding for a change of scene and to use different muscles.
Healthy Options is also happy to arrange a number of other activities during your stay in Lefkas, such as an island-hopping aqua safari, kayaking, windsurfing, wake-boarding and water skiing.
Departing 3 or 10 May, seven nights cost from £645 pp (two sharing), including flights (London), transfers, beach-front accommodation, unlimited yoga and Pilates classes, special tailored fitness classes, guided bike rides and Agio Fili beach walk with meditation and snorkelling, nutritional advice, a 45-minute sailing taster and 60-minute stand-up paddle board taster. Partners and friends welcome, and sailing courses galore await those who prefer their exercise to be water based.
