Helen Clough - Yoga & Meditation Instructor
I was always drawn to yoga, knowing the benefits for mind body and soul, but just couldn't quite find the perfect place and time. As with most things in life, it came to me, and found me at the right time.
Finally, in Manchester, I had found a place to reconnect to my body on a much deeper level than I could ever have anticipated. I hadn't connected to my body in such a freeing, liberating, creative, fun and playful way since my dancing days. I particularly loved vinyasa flow, and Jivamukti, and not long after yin and restorative began to seep into my practice. I was hooked, and found myself craving more and more, always with a thirst for knowledge, my mind wanted to know more about Yoga and it's fascinating history, until finally after my teacher convincing me I was ready I signed up to a teacher training, here in Fuerteventura with Andrea Everingham at Azulfit.
What a location, the whole experienced was truly first class and incredible. It wasn't long, and didn't take very much before my teaching days came back to me like they were yesterday and became more important to me than my regional manager role. I made the bold move to quit corporate, and move into teaching yoga full time. It was an easy decision for me when a position at Azulfit came up. Having experienced first hand the home Azulfit create, including their beliefs, ethics and professionalism, I instantly knew this was for me.
Luckily, they felt I fit too. Arriving back at Azulfit, I felt like I had come home. Now I get to do what I love daily, sharing the beautiful gift of reconnecting to ourselves, with wonderful souls in an incredible magnetic island.
Crescent-shaped Santorini is considered the precious gem of the Aegean. With its white-washed clifftop villages set against the deep blue sky, multicolored beaches, vast volcanic vineyards, crystal clear waters and world-famous sunsets, it is easy to fall under the spell of this magical, mythical island.
You can even scuba dive in this giant lagoon, to adventure into the crater and discover for yourself what’s left of the opening of the volcano.
Your retreat home of Oia is located high up on what is considered the balcony of Santorini. Oia is known for its amazing views of the volcano. Just two kilometers from the beach with inspiring walks and views all around, this is a chance to truly unwind and explore the many facets of beautiful Santorini.
The culture, architecture, geography and gastronomy of Santorini are all reasons to visit in themselves. You can head down to the crystalline coast to take a cooling dip in the deep blue waters and enjoy the stunning beaches with white, red or black sand, spectacular rock formations, and impressive lunar landscapes. Stroll through traditional villages, with narrow streets leading you on an adventure through time gone by. Treat your taste buds to the tantalizing local food, with a whole host of delicious products to sample – some of it coming straight to your table from the organic garden of your Greek host, Antonis. It doesn’t get much more authentic than this.
