Greece is a place filled with sensory sensation from the breathtaking views to the mouthwatering food and every beautiful tradition in between. It is here, in this land of ancient heritage, where we gather to slow down and celebrate life.

If, like us, you enjoy not only quiet contemplation and gentle yoga practices, but also meaningful conversation and new experiences, this retreat is exactly for you.

Apart from enjoying carefully curated movement and meditation practices, explore local villages and beaches, or take a hiking tour of the island, although it may just be too hard to drag yourself away from the endless blue horizon..

Find the organizer

The beauty of Greece and all the ancient stories in her bones calls us to fully immerse all our senses in a true celebration of life. Our retreat will take a slow, typically Mediterranean pace where we will practice movement or meditation in the cool morning air, leaving a day for complete relaxation or exploration before we meet again at sunset.
