YogaBoka Studio

YogaBoka Studio is located in a tranquil and private setting on the edge of a lush green Mediterranean mountain forest. A breathtaking sea and mountain view from our Yoga platform is to enjoy during the practice. With the favourite times being sunrise and sunset.
The studio can be reached from the main road by our 100 steps "fitness" staircase which is a perfect warm up before the class ;-)
Though our space can fit in up to 20 - 25 people, we use it to a full capacity only during workshops and special programs. We believe an ideal yoga group shouldn't be bigger than 5 - 7 people, so everyone gets full attention and alignment in a regular class.
In case you don't have your own yoga mat we will provide one, as well as a seating cushion, yoga brick and other props.
