About this trip

Ride Your Waves in Corfu is a self discovery through yoga, mindfulness, culture, and nature.

This is for the empowered yogi ready to take control of her own power and unravel her true self.

Ride Your Waves stemmed from our needs to always have to control our emotions...but what if we can learn how to regulate them and have fun riding it out?

What if we get to truly understand and accept our True Self without judgements?

With yoga by your side, it's possible.

And it's easier than you think when you are surrounded by the most amazing souls supporting you in your journey.

Reconnect with yourself by going on a mindful holiday crafted specifically with community in mind. It is a time to reflect and surrender. To connect with others and to find your flow & your rhythm.

This yoga retreat holiday is for everyone that needs time away from the busyness and chaos. This is for you if you want to prioritise your own well being with the support of others. Ride your Waves in Corfu is for those of you who want to feed your soul with creativity, joy, ease, and fun!

All levels are welcome, beginners highly recommended to take part. All you need is an open heart and mind.

Daily yoga and mindfulness practice will be included, as well as meals, and excursions (please refer to the itinerary to find out more)....and lots of FREE time to unwind- it is a holiday after all!

Yoga & Mindfulness Practice

There will be lots of time to explore and own your practice. Our yoga & mindfulness practice will be inspired by YOU and our surroundings- what's coming up for you, how the ocean crash into the cliffs, the colour of the sunset, and the peaceful shoreline. Expect to pay attention to the Water Element and how that can influence your practice, bringing you a sense of creativity, fluidity, confidence, and power.

For the early risers, there will be an opportunity to meditate on the beach every morning at sun rise observing the stillness of the water and the cotton candy colour of the sky. A regular meditation will give you a good intention to start your day so that you feel peaceful and find clarity to make better decisions that support your well being throughout the day.

There will be a morning flow every morning to generate heat and mobility, giving you more energy to start the day and a restorative practice in the evening to wind down and surrender— because let’s face it, there’s already enough chaos out there, leave all the worries back at home, rejuvenate with me in Corfu!

An exclusive "Let it Flow" Workshop is included where you get the opportunity to discover and learn about your own self practice by understanding your body and the rhythm of your breath. How often do we feel stressed out because we think we should be in control of everything all the time? In this workshop, you’ll understand what you can be in control of and learn to accept things out of your control so that we are not always trying to chase & want more, it’s time to slow down and accept what’s in front of us so we can live full of satisfaction and joy every single day.

Loads of opportunity for journaling and reflecting during our down time where you can connect with yourself or with other like minded souls in the retreat. Having a community supporting your vision is a huge bonus, but it’s only when you have time for yourself where you truly understand your life purpose.

All practices are beginner-friendly and no experience needed; all levels welcome, all I ask is to have an open heart & mind and to follow your own curiosity.

Accommodation & Food

How lucky are we to have a beautiful home away. A family run business, Villa Ren has a history of its own. The main house was built in the early 80s and was home to one of the most famous Corfiot actresses Rena Vlachopoulou, loved by the Greeks.

Villa Ren was magnificently renovated in 2017-18 and is a spectacular 458,18m2 of premises, boasting a main Villa, a Guest House, two private swimming pools and is surrounded by mediterranean gardens and stone built garden paths.

Villa Ren has a stunning horizon views of the ocean and the multi-coloured cotton candy sky.  In its peaceful surroundings, close to the beach and the island’s highlights, promises to turn your holiday into an enjoyable and memorable experience. It offers modern living with a combination of Twin and Double rooms that benefit with private bathrooms, balconies, pool, and plenty of space outdoors. There is enough space for you to enjoy some private time as well as connecting with the community.

A self-served breakfast will greet you every morning, and home cooked dinner will be served as a banquet. All meals are vegetarian. Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements. Teas, coffees, water, and juices will be served all day. No alcohol will be provided, but you are more than welcome to bring your own to enjoy by the pool!


Bookings and deposits are non refundable. In an event that the hosts decides to cancel, a full refund will be given or an option to transfer payment to future retreats. If there is another lockdown due to COVID that will lead to cancellation, a full refund or transfer is acceptable.

Katrina Madrilejo
I fell in love with Yoga when I started attending classes to support my mental and physical wellbeing during my professional dance training. I aspired to be like my teacher. The manner in which she delivered her classes: calmly, clearly, and with no judgements, left an everlasting impression. It was an hour of my time which I always looked forward to, where I could solely focus on myself. Join me through Why Knot Escapes to rediscover your worth and happiness as I pass on the same magic to every single one of you. :)
