Praise for Healthy Options Yoga Holidays in Greece
It’s my second time on this holiday and I’ve loved meeting a diverse range of people. It’s wholly un-intimidating to arrive alone. You can do as much, or as little, as you want, without any pressure. A gem! - Lorna Campbell
A beautiful relaxed setting, to reboot (!), enjoy exercise, the sea, the people, Amy's classes stood out... and finally finding the confidence to learn to swim. Thank you all for a great two weeks. - Penny Smith
