2 minutes with Amy Chambers
Amy joined us in 2011 to run the fitness sessions at our Vassiliki centre and we haven’t looked back since, she is now manager and resident fitness guru of our activity-packed centre in Vassiliki. Growing up in Cyprus, it was there that her love of watersports and triathlons began. During university, she competed in the British Triathlon Championships and then went on to teach kitesurfing, windsurfing, and diving in various locations around the world. Throughout this time, her love of all things fitness-orientated has continued to grow – she is a Level 3 Personal Trainer, spinning and circuits instructor and holds various swimming and aqua qualifications. Amy has a wonderfully fun and realistic approach to fitness and loves teaching at all levels. But don’t worry, she won’t be enrolling anyone in a boot camp, after all, our philosophy of doing as little or as much as you like always applies!Read more

Praise for Healthy Options Yoga Holidays in Greece
Good choice of classes - very friendly staff and a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere. - Liz Morris
I wanted to say a big thank you to you and everyone at Healthy Options. You were all very helpful with every query I had before my holiday and I know you all spent a very difficult day on the 8th October trying to sort our return journey, when the Greek air traffic controllers threatened to strike. I almost hoped that we would have an extra day in Syvota, as I had such a great holiday, but on reflection the journey home would have been a "challenge" if they really had been on strike. It was a really brilliant holiday, and the small group made it easy to make friends too. Holly and Adam were excellent, both at leading the group in a relaxed and professional way, and ensuring that everyone was kept informed at all times of all the activities and events as they occurred. They were also very good instructors, as were all the instructors involved with all classes. There was so much to do, and as well as the yoga and other classes. I especially enjoyed the paddle boarding, boat trip, river walk and rafting. I really liked the hotel and its location next to the sea, and the staff were all friendly and helpful. The sunsets were beautiful. The pool surroundings were very attractive and the loungers very comfortable. The pool was very cold, which was the only small complaint. It was warmer in the sea! I felt fantastic after my healthy and relaxing holiday, and all my friends wanted to know what had made me look so well and relaxed. I have told them all to book with you, and hope you will send me a brochure for next year. - Linda Boiling
