Cyprus Yoga Retreat with Claire Dalloz

4th to 11th October 2020



Cyprus is all about APHRODITES, the island's goddess. The third largest Mediterranean island with over 300 sunny days a year, Cyprus looks back on a more than 10,000 year old cultural history. It offers all art and culture lovers as well as all sun worshipers a restful, interesting and unique stay. Cyprus is a green island, rich in forests, and has  fantastic, sprawling beaches with a bright blue sea. The legendary hospitality of its inhabitants make Cyprus a special experience.


The Aphrodite Beach Hotel is located away from the hustle and bustle, right on a fine pebble beach with crystal clear water. Gregoria, who learned hotel management in Switzerland, her family and the entire crew make it easy to enjoy, relax and recharge your batteries indulging all your senses.


All the guests are spoiled here with Cypriot charm and warmth. The nearby Akamas peninsula gives the place its special charm and makes it a truly "powerful place”. All in all an ideal place for people who are looking for something special: peace, tranquility and the desire to discover themselves and the island on their own.


During this intense yoga week (5 hours practice per day) we will enjoy a holistic practice. In the morning session we begin in silence with a meditation and pranayama practice and then move into a dynamic Hatha Flow practice. In the evening session we sing mantras and wind body and mind down with a restorative practice. 


You have the opportunity to leave daily life behind and to dive deep into your yoga practice, connect to your essence, restore your energy and create a healing space within you. This connection to your essence enables you to feel a sense of freedom on all levels: physical, emotional, spiritual. It allows you to come home to the Self.


Claire offers an integrated, holistic practice that awakens consciousness on all levels. Through moments of stillness in meditation, moments of concentration in pranayama (breath work) and the precise practice of asanas (yoga poses) consciousness is awakened and transformation can take place.


Price: € 965.– per person


Included in the price:

  • accommodation (7 nights) in a double room (double rooms may be used for single occupancy at a slight increase in price)
  • delicious breakfast buffet and 3-course vegetarian evening meal using local fresh products
  • all yoga classes
  • shared taxi to and from the airport

Please bring your own yoga mat, if possible.

May to September 2021

100 hour Hatha Yoga Immersion and Personal Development course

May - September 2021


Are you a yoga teacher?

  • Have you just finished a teacher training course and are asking yourself "now what"?
  • Do you want to feel like you own "your yoga practice?"
  • Are you a serious yoga practitioner who has been practicing yoga for several years and would like to experience yoga on a deeper level?
  • How does the philosophy of yoga apply to you in your daily life?

If you answered YES to any of the above questions then this might be just the course for you!


From January - June 2020 Claire will offer a process-oriented course that will deeply transform you and your understanding of the practices of yoga. The organisation of the course will be on a modular basis located at YogaTopia in Herrliberg. The 5th and final module will take place during a week's retreat in a beautiful location in Italy. The number of participants is limited in order to ensure maximum individual attention and to keep the group as a harmonious whole. 


Module 5 - the Retreat

7 day retreat in the beautiful, newly-renovated Boutique Hotel Country House Montessino, Italy. In the distant past on one of the picturesque hills of the Monferrato, the hamlet of Montessino belonged to a large Italian wine-growing family. In 2016 Claudia and Alessandro acquired one of the historic houses (built 1850) and restored it with great passion and care for detail. This is where we will spend our final week of the 100 hour immersion course together. This is truly a place to “lean back and enjoy the pleasures of life in harmony with nature, following the motto Carpe Diem” as they say on their website.

July 2021

Corfu Yoga Retreat with Claire Dalloz

17th to 24th July 2021



Beautiful golden light, silvery-shimmering Olive groves, hidden beach coves with a turquoise-blue sea and long stretches of sandy beach - these are all perfect ingredients for a Yoga holiday away from the stresses and strains of daily life.


You will stay in Club Mythos Corfu situated in the picturesque village of Arillas. Centrally situated and yet peaceful and quiet. The beach, cafés, bars and little shops are just a 5-minute walk away. The hotel is surrounded by olive groves and offers its guests the opportunity to relax on the beach or enjoy long walks to hidden coves or old mountain villages.


For more information and to see pictures of the centre please check-out www.mythos-corfu.com


In the first week we will enjoy an extended morning practice of 3 to 3.5 hours. At daybreak we will greet the new morning in silence with a meditation, kriya and pranayama practice. After that we will flow in a dynamic asana practice in which the focus is on the precise placement of the body so that body, mind and soul, as a team, become one-pointed in their focus. In this way we create conscious awareness, restore balance and connect to our inner essence. Allow yourself to be inspired!


In this first week the afternoons are free for you to enjoy the beautiful beaches, walk in the cool olive groves, or simply treat yourself to a massage and relax in a hammock in the shade. This week can be visited together with week 2 or they can be booked separately.


During week 2 we will practice 5 to 5.5 hours a day. The morning schedule is the same as during week 1 but in the evening we will enjoy 2 hours of restorative/yin yoga in addition to mantra practice. Thus week 2 is an intensive yoga week.

Claire’s teaching focuses on correct alignment in order for optimal breathing and flow of energy to take place. Each and every moment on or off the mat is an opportunity to live and breathe freely - it begins with conscious placement of the body, evening out imbalances and ultimately finding peace of mind! Claire adapts her classes to suit the needs of the participants and where necessary provides modifications of positions so that each participant is able to practice at his level of experience and deepen his experience.


Price:  € 990.- per person.


Included are:

Accommodation (7 nights) in a double room in ‘Haus Hoys’ or an apartment. (Double rooms may be used for single occupancy at a slight increase in price.)

Delicious breakfast buffet and vegetarian evening meal using local fresh products

All yoga classes

Shared taxi to and from the airport
