About the instructors
Charlotte started her journey with us as a young yogini and volunteer in 2012, a six-month experience which quite literally changed her life. Having learned a new, simpler way of living, Yoga became her compass, an internal light. She sees her job as quite simple; to help to make the Azulfit dream a reality- creating an environment in which our team and our guests can meet their greatest potential. Through care, support, positivity, and passion inside and outside of the studio we can grow and thrive and find the inner peace and happiness that is our true nature.
Charlotte's classes will take you deeper - ever the student, Charlotte is passionate about sharing her knowledge, kindness and compassion to help you gain a deeper understanding of your practice, your body and yourself.
Sarah was born in the U.K. but is a child of the world. Her passion in life has been to travel, meet new people and experience as much as possible. She has spent most of the last 19 years traveling, living and working in Spain, the Caribbean, Italy, Greece, Australia, South East Asia, East Africa, India, Nepal, and Bali. Whilst living and working overseas she has gathered varied skills including working in the travel industry in Italy, teaching English for a charity in Nepal, working on an ecological project in Bali, raising funds and distributing shoes for a children’s charity in East Africa, training as primary school teacher, managing restaurants and even had her own cake business in the Caribbean. Her experiences have given her a broad love for the planet, its wonderful people and a better understanding of our interconnectedness. Her favourite thing in life is her love of people and to help them in any way she can to reach their best potential, either through teaching, charity work or simply by listening and trying to accommodate their needs in her job.
Crescent-shaped Santorini is considered the precious gem of the Aegean. With its white-washed clifftop villages set against the deep blue sky, multi-colored beaches, volcanic vineyards, crystal clear waters, and world-famous sunsets, it is easy to fall under the spell of this magical, mythical island.
Your retreat home is nestled in a valley just below bustling Oia. Oia is a precious gem located high up on what is considered the balcony of Santorini, famous for its amazing views of the submerged caldera. Nestled just 5 mins from a quiet black-sand beach, and with walking distance of vineyards, churches and ruins, the retreat offers an opportunity to relax and unwind in a private setting, whilst offering the totality of a real Santorini experience.
The sublime setting of Santorini will inspire you for an incredible week of discovery.
Life offers us so many moments of pure joy, don’t lets this one pass you by.

'We strongly support the idea of organic nutrition, that’s why we offer our customers a wide range of Greek, traditional dishes using as many ingredients as we can from our own produce, such as cherry tomatoes, white aubergines, local cucumbers (katsounia), round zucchinis, string beans (ampelofasoula), grapes, figs, melons and watermelons. Take a stroll into our vegetable garden and get acquainted with the renowned, dry varieties which grow on the island and taste the fruit of our fig trees which surround your bungalows.'
