FOOD

Enjoy delicious cuisine based on ancient Ayurvedic principles, emphasizing wellbeing, balance and bliss in the body.

You create your own plate from a selection of plant-based dishes, fusing exotic Indian flavours with the tastes and character of traditional Greek cuisine.

Angelo, whose love of Greek cuisine and nutrition have led him to work with food for over 30 years, met Suresh, our resident Ayurvedic chef from North East India in Goa in 2015. Suresh learned the magic of Greek cuisine and together with Elvira, who is the goddess of pastries and sugar free desserts they take care of the delicious meals at Caretta Lounge Restaurant.

The kitchen takes great pride in creating meals with complete taste profiles that tantalize the taste buds and leave the body and soul satiated, nourished and energized.

We eat together twice daily on Caretta’s open deck with the amazing view of the Aegean Sea or the Moon rising!

Meals are served at brunch and dinner, times specifically designated around your daily Yoga practice and for your optimal digestion.

For something extra, the kitchen is available to serve you in between meals, with juices and smoothies, and a selection of healthy snacks and salads available for order throughout the day.

Anna Karides

Anna Karides has been teaching Yoga and AcroYoga for over a decade.

In her native Cyprus, she took part in long-distance running competitions and aerobic marathons, as well as doing ballet and modern dance for 13 years. In her teens, her curiosity for the body led her to pick up many books on yoga, which was the start of her yoga journey. At the time, she was self-taught and a serious hip injury gave her the opportunity to immerse herself deeper into the practice, revealing the vast benefits of yoga including, not needing her asthma inhaler any longer.

Fascinated by the practice of yoga, Anna took her first teacher training while she was completing a Masters in Law. Straight after becoming a Barrister, she became the youngest ever certified AcroYoga teacher at the time.

She is grateful to have studied with pioneering yoga teachers, among them Dharma Mittra, Elena Voyce, Jason Nemer & Jenny Sauer-Klein, Sharon Gannon & David Life and Emma Henry. Her classes are inspired by AcroYoga, Jivamukti and Dharma Mittra, and reflect her passion for backbends, arm balances and inversions. In London she has been teaching at the city’s leading studios: Indaba Yoga, triyoga, Bodyism, Xtend Barre, Hotel Café Royal and many more.

Anna has taught at Wilderness Festival, at the Obonjan Music & Wellbeing Festival in Croatia and at the rooftop Frank’s Café as part of Bold Tendencies’ immersive arts programme in 2015, organised by the widely acclaimed Secret Yoga Club. She performed and presented at the British Yoga Festival, Mind Body Spirit Festival, at the opening of Reebok’s first CrossFit store in London’s Covent Garden, and at the long-running OM Yoga Show. Her biggest audience to date was at Lululemon’s Sweatlife Festival in 2016, where she taught a class of over 300 people.
