It's been a great pleasure staying at The Grange - very welcoming and lovely accommodation - particularly love the colourful art! The garden too is gorgeous. Waking up to a sunny Saturday morning, I headed off down the lush garden and caught a glimpse of the glistening sea through the trees. Running along the shoreline was a highlight for this year! thank you! (Screenwriting with Phil Gladwin)

The trip I took to Greece with Skyros Holidays was one of the best in my life. I am 25 years old and traveled all the way from Minnesota, USA. I came by myself but was welcomed and made comfortable by all the staff. Each staff member (including chefs, course teachers, bar assistants and cleaning help, etc) were friendly, fun and professional. The food was fresh and the chefs accommodated to all different diets. The courses were inspiring and enlightening, as well as fun and entertaining. My overall trip and experience was amazing and I came back home a much better person. (Atsitsa - September 2012)

The Grange - Yoga for You - Marina Sossi
This was a fabulous weekend. Marina was a great teacher, very inspirational. Having done very little yoga before, and not really knowing what to expect, I found it both challenging and exhilarating. It has spurred me on to seek out a local yoga class

Michelle
The Grange - Yoga for You - Marina Sossi
I expected to leave this weekend relaxed and chilled out: however an additional bonus was that I felt like I really challenged my body and mind. As an active gym member I am sceptical about yoga (having only done one class before) but I am leaving here a convert. The teaching was excellent, suitable for beginners and advanced too. WILL RETURN!!

Without a shadow of a doubt the very best weekend break I have ever had. The Grange is a beautiful building filled with curious objects and friendly faces. The garden is a small piece of paradise and the perfect place for a picnic in the sunshine. Would most definitely recommend, can't wait to see what other courses are available.

The Grange - Celebrate Spring - Alison Goldie & Kate Daniels.
The singing workshops were particularly enjoyable and I felt my confidence lifting and increasing throughout the exercises. The facilitator challenged me just enough to take the risk to sing. Thank you.
The food/catering/decor of dining room made me feel very nurtured and taken care of. Thank you so much for all the hard work of staff and attention to detail and profusion of fruit!!
I really appreciated the freedom we had to either participate or take time out to rest - I enjoyed catching up on sleep very much.

I'm writing to let you know that my stay over Christmas at The Grange exceeded all my expectations!
Everything was very special, from the wonderful music with Susie and Michael, to the interesting workshops with Andrew and especially the food that Julian and his staff so carefully provided for me.
My food is especially important, as it can often isolate me socially, but Julian quietly and calmly prepared food for me that was delicious and there was also plenty of it too. He and Angie made my Christmas especially relaxing. Please pass on my appreciation to them especially and my thanks to everyone who went out of their way to make the whole experience memorable for all the right reasons

The great thing about Atsitsa is that you can make the holiday as active or relaxing as suits you. Everyone is so welcoming as great friendships are made. (Atsitsa Bay, Skyros)

Having returned only last week from two incredible weeks in Skyros (Dina's 'Life choices, life changes/New Beginnings') I can happily confirm that everything you read is true! This really has been transformational and I have made friends who I know are now part of my life. The shared experience of joining the Skyros community is a wonderful thing - don't hesitate, grab the opportunity!

I have just finished reading Dina's book 'The Joy of Burnout'. As a 23 year old who has not long graduated from university, I felt silly at first, wondering if I was being dramatic in thinking I might have 'burnt out' this young. Now I think the dangers of not honouring your thruth is something that everyone should be aware of as early as possible in their lives, particularly for people like me who were just beginning to honour their true self but then abandoned it, making the path to burnout even more dangerous. So much makes sense to me now. Thank you Dina

I loved the peace and gentle view and serenity of Skyros. Thank you. Nice to do a very practical workshop which helped me to be focused - as did the yoga.

I sit here, burntout woman, in Iceland, with tears in my eyes of gratitude to Dr. Dina Glouberman for having written the book "The Joy of Burnout", which I felt was written for me.

My burnout is a death of the old and a rising sun to a new life, new way of thinking, new way of being me.

Thank you Dina - hopefully I will be with you one day at Skyros.

Tracy, London
This was my first holiday alone ever & it has been a fantastic one. I felt safe, I made friends who I know I will stay in contact with, I tried new things & I relaxed. I had clear expectations of the Skyros experience in terms of ethos, activities, accommodation & community & it exceeded my expectations on all fronts. Thank you to everyone who contributed to that.

To experience Atsitsa is to experience and develop your own power and sense of spirit and to do the "work" of enjoying the beauty, sea, sun, walks, moonlight, is a joyful journey in Heaven. Thank you.

I can neither read music or sing but the singing and song-writing course with Tsivi gave me the unique opportunity to have an insight into both. Thoroughly enjoyable and sometimes emotional.

Fresh back from Skyros and just to say that I had the most wonderful time! The course was just fantastic, Andrew Miller is just wonderful and so encouraging.

Everyone in the group was just lovely - we had loads of laughs, wonderful food, danced, sang, hugged, kissed (!)

Carly and Colin were just fantastic - two wonderfully talented muscians. I know Atsista now has the joys of their company for the next fortnight and I know they will be loved by everyone. Two truly beautiful people!

I chose the holiday primarly to see Angkor Wat. While that itself surpassed my expecations totally, I thorougly enjoyed and appreciated the photography and group sessions. Mike ia a great tour leader so I'd like to extend thanks to him for all the work he's put into making it such an amazing programme.

Being restorartive for both body and soul, I have returned refreshed with a warm sense of well-being. I have made some great new friends and without exception the everyone in the group were great company - quite honestly, I've not laughed so much for ages! I would absolutely consider a Skyros holiday again.
April 2009
Julia, UK
I am too excited for words to be returning to Skyros this summer - for the 12th year!

When I first discovered the brochure all those years ago in Canada, I truly felt it was in some way significant. Who was to know I'd move back to Greece the first year I facilitated a course at Atsitsa, and become a regular?

I can honestly say it's changed my life; my address book is overflowing, I've met many of my favourite people there, it's even taken me to Thailand for a month.... But there's not enough space for all that here.

Suffice to say if you're new to Skyros and are thinking about going on a Skyros Holiday, check out the website and read the entire Guestbook.
Now really, what is there to think about?!

Why not join me in July and August and learn how to give (and receive) a blissful aromatherapy massage, a rejuvenating reflexology treatment and a wonderfully relaxing Indian head massage. Can you think of a better way to spend your hard earned vacation?

Looking forward to seeing old friends and new, with love from Virginia xXxXx

Skyros Thailand was the most wonderful place to be during February's blizzards: hot, beautiful, peaceful, and a group of lovely people. Aiyapura is a calm, lush retreat - special memories of morning yoga under the palm trees- and nothing is too much trouble for the charming staff. The food's delicious, the weather great and I'm hoping to return next year!

Christina, Thailand 2009
I attended the Skyros Thailand session in Jan-Feb '09 and had one of the best experiences of my life. The holiday was everything I hoped it would be. The Skyros staff and the resort staff at Aiyapura were absolutely fantastic. The island of Ko Chang was beautiful. The other participants in the group were people I hope to remain friends with for the rest of my life. We're already planning our reunion. Highly recommended.

I was in Atsitsa Bay last week and feel that I have been in an emotional washing machine. I have emerged squeaky clean, purer in heart, mind, body and spirit. I don't know how she did it, or what she did, but Dina created a place of pure magic. Walking around "hutland" I was able to soak up the atmosphere and fill my heart with pure joy. There is no going back to a time and place before Atsitsa. I had the childhood in Atsitsa that I was denied first time round. I found love, praise, encouragement, nurture and genuine affection and acceptance for the whole of who I am, not what I am. I regard myself as very lucky to have found this place. It is paradise. Thank you to everyone who was there, both staff and fellow guests. I love you all. xxx

I had the most extraordinary,wonderful experience at The Skyros Village Centre. Dina Glouberman & Ari Badaines,both incredible facilitators,who really helped me find my inner strength to change! I went to Skyros to let go of an old pattern in my relationships and was shown,with alot of pain & alot of tears that my life needed to go in a different direction,that I need to listen to my soul,my heart and be brave! Of which I am eternally grateful! It is quite remarkable how being so open and exposing your inner self can create such relief and generate such warmth & love from fellow participants. I am sure that the friendships I made in these 2 weeks will be for life!

It really is a magical experience,the most incredible holiday I have ever had. I look forward to Thailand or even Cuba next!!

Thank you Skyros!!!!

Met in Skyros September 1986 so it is almost 22 years together - along with Tasha 20 and Alex 18. They say it is the holiday you take home with you and that is pretty accurate.

Sparkling women, handsome men, blue sea, pine forests, yacht in the bay, good food, lots of laughter and singing.
Just seen Mamma Mia! Equally applies to Atsitsa! Went again after 14 years - just as invigorating and rejuvenating. Thanks to all on AT5 and the staff.

Just back from Atsitsa after a short break....What a break...I sailed (deck fluff), belly danced..ate some amazing food including the really 'wicked desserts' and was entertained by the 'Atsitsa band' and and impromptu Samba night. This is not counting the super conversations and a whole load of chuckling to full blown laughter....AMAZING!!!!!!

A Skyros holiday is not merely another opportunity to feel sun on your skin and swim in clean salt water. The whole experience of sharing two weeks with a number of strangers, eating, learning, walking, swimming, talking, singing and dancing together is a truly heartwarming experience. I defy anyone to go on a Skyros holiday and not come away enriched and changed for the better.

Thank you for the most wonderful fortnight in the Skyros village centre. I'd thought I'd booked for Atsitsa (!) but was immediately delighted with my 'mistake'! Michael was a fantastic course director and centre manager and very much set the tone of hilarity, warmth and appreciation among all of us. Our group continue to be in close contact now we're (reluctantly!) back in the UK, so the fortnight's experience will last and last.

Just to say thank you to you and your staff for making my stay with you so wonderful. It was so nice to have a lovely group of people to stay with too and it is a truly beautiful place. I enjoyed the courses and it was nice to take some time out of my life to get things back in perspective.
Thank you.

Atsitsa helped me to write two novels and I didn't even attend a writing course there! I met inspirational people and had great fun and even organised a Passion Evening (where folk spoke or shared some of their passions). I'd been scared of standing up in front of a group and introducing the guests, but when I did I found it was empowering and even thrilling. And a good reminder that one of my passions is writing. I started my first novel that autumn. The setting was so beautiful too. Thanks Skyros and Atsitsa!
