Your yoga instructor
Sylvia will be your yoga instructor and therapist for the week. She brings a wealth of related knowledge from the holistic mind-body field and 25 years teaching experience to the sessions.
Sylvia's deep commitment is expressed in a supportive, "easy going" teaching style which is motivational and places emphasis on fostering a real sense of enjoyment in the practice of Yoga.
Her firmly held belief is that a Yoga life-style approach - including meditation and breathing techniques - benefits everyone in body, mind and spirit. Furthermore, when we enjoy doing something we are much more likely to make it a part of our daily lives and so reap the benefits!

This yoga holiday with Sylvia was one of the best decisions I have ever made. She has an amazing personality and adapts to the requirements of the individual needs so that you can get the best out of your holidays and
yourself. She managed to calm my mind, helped me to get clear on my future goals and to get rid of any doubts I had. Thank you :-)

Thank you so much.
I arrived back full of energy with no aches and pains. You taught me so much - I will be back.
An Inner Harmony retreat is about so much more than just yoga - it's about relaxation, meditation, self development, getting back in balance and yes, yoga too. Not only did my Yoga practice improve considerably in the space of just 5 days but I learnt relaxation techniques, meditation techniques, affirmation and visualisation techniques - all of which I have put into practice since I came home from Cyprus. I found Sylvia an excellent mentor and coach and a great Yoga teacher! Sylvia is quietly unassuming and always so encouraging and understanding! You can't help but absorb her calmness and wisdom. Added to the above is the quiet location of Tochni village which promotes a slower and more relaxed pace of life, scenic views, great food and wine and genuinely friendly people and you have all the ingredients of one truly relaxing and energising holiday. I cannot recommend Inner Harmony enough!

The picturesque little village of Tochni is very well suited for a yoga vacation, the people are friendly, there's good food at the taverna and a cozy, warm atmosphere. I found Sylvia to be a very warm and supportive person. It was not only a week of yoga and guided meditations, but also some coaching on issues that I wanted to work on. So it was quite intense at times, but mostly a very interesting and relaxing experience.

"I lead an extremely stressful life in London - busy job and very little time for myself. I had never been on a yoga/retreat holiday before but was very keen to spend a week in a hot climate not so far away, doing yoga and trying to detox and destress ... somehow. I spent a week in Cyprus receiving intensive yoga and healing from Sylvia and I feel very lucky to have met her. She is a highly skilled professional and a very experienced healer - she has a compassion and kindness and a deep insight which are very apparent on meeting her and during her therapeutic sessions. Within a very short space of time Sylvia tailored her skills and knowledge to exactly meet my needs - I feel this was a very personalized approach and produced an extremely effective combination of yoga, and other forms of guided relaxation and meditation techniques as well as use of other healing methods and light hypnotherapy. The emphasis is very much on mind and body connection and simply makes sense for those seeking a more peaceful and balanced existence. I would strongly recommend Sylvia's retreat to anyone seeking relaxation, spiritual guidance and balance in their lives. Cyprus is beautiful, the weather and food glorious. This also makes the whole experience so worthwhile."
Caroline, London, England
I am so grateful for all the things you taught me during our time together in Cyprus. I have been doing yoga each morning and have also started cycling to work which has made me feel so much more balanced and full of energy. I have to say that one of the best things I took away from my experience with you is how to really breathe properly, it can get you through all situations - stress, nerves, pain....
I really enjoyed working with Sylvia. The yoga classes were individualized according to my needs. The accommodation was picturesque and the food in the taverna delicious. The whole week was relaxing and I took several techniques home with me. I would very much like to come back again.
The setting and accommodation was beautiful and Sylvia was warm and very accommodating. Being complete novices the programme was tailored to our particular needs. It was a great introduction to yoga, refreshing to both the body and the mind and a very enjoyable experience overall. We have been able to take back with us techniques which we have been able to incorporate into our daily lives. Much recommended. Thank you!
We are very grateful and pleased with the Yoga Holiday in Cyprus. The 'tools' we have learnt from your expertise will be very useful for us from now on.
