The retreat will be lead and run by me, Alex Lankester. I'm a qualified yoga and pilates teacher and love practising and teaching yoga & pilates in beautiful outdoor surroundings such as the Lefkada Retreat. 

My philosophy on retreats, is that whilst we are all together, everyone can very much do their own thing, so if you would prefer to lie in bed one day and simply rest or lounge by the pool, that is absolutely fine. Whilst I'd love you to attend the classes, you must do what you need for your rest and rejuvenation - that is by far the most important thing!

And please don't hesitate to email me if you have any questions about the above and I really hope you can join us!

How to Get There - An Island Connected by a Bridge

Reaching Lefkada Island can be done in two ways -

 

Direct flights to PVK international airport, just 25 minutes away from Lefkada Island and British Airways flies direct from Heathrow to Lefkada. 

 

Another option is to fly to Athens International Airport, and from the airport driving to the island, with a rented car or a private bus.  The ride to Lefkada is 4 hours approx and mostly highway with beautiful views and a smooth ride.

We can assist you with the local travel arrangements from either airport.
