One thought on “About Travelling to Skiathos

  1. Dear yvonne,
    Well I have just recently heard about your retreat for artists and am really looking forward to visiting. It looks wonderful, well done. I had already decided to come to Mykanos in March to be with my partner. He is at present based there as an artist himself and working hard, very busy.
    After several quite intense months which included a serious accident and a great deal of healing, thinking, contemplating what i want to do in my life, I came to the conclusion that i would like to one day (long term goal) open a retreat eco style centre for art, creativity, yoga and dance. Your retreat totally inspires me. I very much look forward to visiting and perhaps doing a short course.
    I am a yoga teacher by profession however I have not been teaching for over a year whilst working as a nanny and travelling a great deal. I will be setting up a class in Mykanos in order to get back into teaching as I know that I am a great teacher and its time to start again. Perhaps there is a chance I could do a few classes at your retreat? I look forward to meeting with you when I am able to get to the island.
    best wishes and the best of luck with everything.

    Jo Eales

    ps – if you have any room for employees, I am a capable multiskilled woman of 32 years (background as manager of studio, yoga teacher and childcarer) and my partner is an interior designer, carpenter and landscape gardener
