Just back from a 10-day course at the Skyros Centre, much restored at many levels. Caring helpful staff; yummy food which allowed me to stick to a complicated health regime; a beautiful setting, with a vine-shaded terrace; yoga to start the day, outdoors; traditional Skyrian houses to stay in; the overwhelming experience of Skyros town, which was a challenge but wonderful to connect with. As to the courses, they were well-run and enriching. I did "Life choices, life changes" as well as the yoga, and dipped into Alison's laughter thing, playing silly games and having a good laugh and awakening my creativity. Then there was the beach, a good trek down the hill and along the road, but blissfull when we got there. It was a pleasure to go out with the gang, or "tribe", to the beach, the tavernas, the town so rich in character, history, myth.... I heartily recommend it.
Just don't go if you have trouble moving around on steep hills - if you have dodgy knees or hips, let alone a serious mobility impairment, this is not for you. I struggled the first day or two. After getting lost and having to seek help a couple of times I found a connection to the place through my feet and loved it after that. Getting lost seems to be part of the Skyros experience!
