About our Course
OUR STAY AT THE URBAN YOGA HOUSE RETREAT IN IOANNINA, GREECE The teacher training course and retreat will be held in Ioannina, which was once the ''Capital of Enlightenment'' of the most mountainous province in Greece, namely Epirus. Ioannina is blessed with abundant natural beauty and rich history. In this enchanting corner of Greece, you might feel that you stepped back to forgotten centuries with elements of the twenty-first century floating around the city. The old part of the city where our retreat is located has managed to preserve a rich heritage with outstanding samples of folklore architecture, a wonderful reminder of the city's past. Time stops within the fortified walls surrounding the castle and the city, where your mysterious journey of yours begins. The oldest Byzantine castle in the country, the castle of Ioannina, will make you want to stay here forever in order to observe the unimaginable beauty of the city from the top! Emblematic at its best Pamvotida lake, is the true jewel of Ioannina, while the lakeside pathway with the plane trees is the real treasure for nature lovers. Small boats connect the city with a little island in the middle of the lake, the so-called “Nisaki” by the locals. On the lake's waters, Mitsikeli mountain is mirroring its perennial beauty and is just so majestic and peaceful to the soul. Nearby excursions include the ancient oracle of Dodoni, the picturesque town of Metsovo, the beautiful Zagorochoria villages, and the breathtaking Gorge of Vikos. Ioannina is also very close to some of the popular summer destinations in Greece, Lefkas, and Corfu islands as well as the most beautiful beaches and seaside places that Parga, Syvota, and Preveza offer. Located in the heart of the center and right next to the old city, Urban Yoga House, will be your home for your training days. Urban Yoga House is an organic part of Yoga Fusion Shala in Ioannina, operating yearly as a yogic little Zen oasis right in the beating heart of the cultural center of historical Ioannina. Whenever a teacher training is currently running both Yoga Fusion Shala and Urban Yoga House are solely dedicating the shala and retreat to the students of the teacher training course. The yogic dormitories and private rooms, bathrooms, kitchens, and common areas are always spotless and designed to promote the yogic spirit of simplicity, peace, and tranquility to all the students we are wholeheartedly welcoming here.
