Yoga Holiday in Cyprus
19th – 26th September 2022
Aphrodite Beach Hotel, 8830 Polis Chrysochous, Cyprus
Are you looking for something truly breathtaking? Natural, full of wildlife, serene and beautiful all at the same time? Look no further for your summer yoga holiday! This year Yogafurie is taking you to a magical spot in Cyprus, right on the doorstep of Akamas Peninsula National Park.
This holiday is designed to provide a space for creativity, relaxation and an opportunity to deepen your practice of yoga. We offer guests the chance to reconnect with nature alongside like minded people. A place to stop, step back and recharge. Set within a place where the clear turquoise sea meets the strong energy of the hills and the rocks of the Akamas National Park, you can truly take time to get back to who you are whilst simply savouring the surroundings and enjoying what the holiday has to offer.
We will be staying at Aphrodite, a beautiful family run hotel where the priority is providing a perfect treat for your hearts and souls. They have beautifully renovated, spacious rooms with sea side views to offer. Whether sharing a twin with a friend or enjoying a double to yourself, or with a loved one, every room comes with a private shower and W/C, air conditioning (and heating although we don’t think you’ll need it!), free WiFi, and a balcony for enjoying the gorgeous views!
Everyone will benefit from the below with the price paid:
- 7 nights accommodation.
- 2 physical yoga sessions each day (one on the day we leave).
- Optional early morning meditations.
- Optional extra daytime yoga workshops (not every day).
- Breakfast, lunch and dinner each day.
Meals are provided for all eaters! You will find a great range of vegetarian food and tasty vegan options are offered, if you have any other specific dietary requirements they are more than happy to cater for them. Please let us know as soon as you book in if you do have dietary requirements.
On this holiday you’ll be shown how to deepen your yoga practice to suit your needs and develop your yoga in the way you’d like to. You’ll discover a variety of new ways to approach the physical practice of yoga, and a host of meditation and breath practices. You’re sure to discover new practices that can benefit you in your everyday life.

Expect a light touch of humour in your practice! Yoga is a joyous and miraculous way to discover the world inside and the world outside of you.
What else can I do?
Each morning and evening you’ll be practicing yoga with beautiful views of the sea, and throughout the days you’ll have plenty of time to explore, to rest, or to take part in our optional yoga workshops, each with a different focus.
HIKING / RAMBLING
Akamas is a unique area, both geologically and geographically and with regard to Flora and Fauna. Almost all the geological formations of Cyprus can be found here, resulting in a real geological mosaic. For this reason, the Akamas peninsula is endowed with a unique biodiversity, habitats and ecosystems.
DISCOVER NATURE AND WILDLIFE ON YOUR DOORSTEP
Many Akamas visitors are nature lovers. In the Akamas Peninsula no less than approximately 530 different plant species grow, not to mention the world wide known orchids. The variety of fauna is equally impressive with its 168 birds, 12 mammals, 20 reptiles and 16 butterfly species that have been sighted in the area. The famous Baths of Aphrodite is both the start and the end of the two self guided nature trails on the Akamas.
HIRE A BIKE TO VENTURE FURTHER
You can cross this natural beauty via bicycle!
SWIM AND KAYAK TO EXPLORE THE SEA
The clear turquoise and calm waters of the sea in the area, make it perfect for swimming or kayaking.
VISIT THE LOCAL TAVERNS AND SHOPS
Only 3 minutes away by car is Latchi harbour where you will find a variety of taverns and shops. Latchi with its coastal boardwalk is the picturesque harbour of Polis, known throughout Cyprus for its fresh fish. In the past it served as a small port for shipping carobs. The old stone carob warehouses have been converted into restaurants, fish taverns and places for recreation.
SNORKEL AND EXPLORE FURTHER
From Latchi you can take a boat to Fontana Amoroza or the Blue Lagoon and spend the day snorkeling in the clear turquoise water. A further 5 minutes along the road will take you to Polis Chrysochous on the boardwalk by the sea, here you can take a walk in the Eucalyptus forest down by the beach or visit one of the archaeological sights.
