Your Instructor

Akyaka is known for its stable thermic wind which kicks in around noon and lasts until sunset. The wind varies between 7m/s to 10m/s. If the wind against all expectations won’t show up one day er have a lot of no-wind activities planned. Among other things we offer volleyball, slackline, refreshing dip in the nearby river with fresh mountain water which travels through the small village just a few meters from our hotel.

 

 

On this trip you will be able to move in your own pace and join what you wish. If you wish, you can rest by the pool or beach. Go on a Stand Up Paddle or kayak trip. The area offers a wide variety of daily trips like a trip to a waterfall, historical sights among other things.

 

You will get an unforgettable week where every corner of your body will be stretched and strengthened. Get ready to feel the wind blowing through your hair and the salt water spraying on your skin under warmer skies.        

 

 

Du vil få en uforglemmelig uge, hvor hvert hjørne af din krop bliver strakt ud og styrket – glæd dig til at mærke vinden i håret og få saltsprøjt på huden under varmere himmelstrøg.

Weather & Wind

Yogarejse til Kreta

Yoga

The weather in Akyaka in September offers sunshine and blue skies. The average temperature is around 25C but usually it gets warmer throughout the day. It is a good idea to bring a long sleaved sweater for the evenings and if you have the tendency to get cold a shorty-wetsuit might be a good idea (It can also be bought at the spot if needed).

 

Akyaka is known as one of the best beginner sports in all Europe. This is, among other things, because of the consistent onshore wind and a nice sandy bottom where you can touch the bottom approximately 150m out.

 

The wind is usually stable, consistent and not gusty. Akyaka is also offering the ideal conditions for the seasoned kitesurfer with world class conditions for freeride, freestyle and foil kiting.

 

We are with you all the way to inspire and help you learn anything from your first turn to an unhooked handle-pass.

Yoga

The yoga classes are adapted to new as well as advanced students can join. Everything is guided and adapted so everyone will get a benefit of the class. Yoga is not about competition and all you need is to show up exactly as you are. The yoga classes are based on hatha yoga but we will also touch elements of yin and vinyasa yoga. The yoga classes take place outdoors where we get the opportunity to inhale the clean fresh air deep down into your lungs.
