l PAINTING AND PHOTOGRAPHY Even your more creative clients might struggle to find the time or inspiration to pursue their hobbies at home, but the seascapes and hilltop villages of Alonissos should reawaken their artistic side. British artist Chris Hughes, who has a house and studio on the Sporades island, leads painting holidays for Sunvil Holidays. With five four-hour lessons spread over a one or two-week period, budding artists have plenty of time to improve their technique. Sessions cost £195 and can be added to any Alonissos holiday. For a more 21st-century take on the arts, Thomas Cook’s SunConnect hotels help guests return home with more than just a few selfies to remember their holiday. The technology-focused resorts in Kos and Rhodes offer night-time photo-walks, Instagram workshops and sessions


on shooting holiday movies, teaching people of any age how to achieve better results from their smartphones.


l YOGA Learning yoga is about more than twisting into impossible positions. The week-long yoga retreat at wellness resort Zening Elia Village in Latchi, northwest Paphos, focuses on the philosophy as much as the physical side. With 14 yoga and meditation sessions, plus health-focused food and a fresh juice bar, guests are pretty much guaranteed to feel refreshed. More experienced yoga


students can try Skiathos Princess Hotel’s YOGAqua, where the yoga takes place on stand-up paddleboards, while MarBella Corfu has introduced aerial yoga in hammocks above the ground, so guests feel weightless as they attempt new poses.
