About the retreat

Yoga is the art and science of Connection. Connect with yourself on a deeper level to live a wholehearted life in harmony with your true Nature and Nature around you. Join us for a week long journey which takes you deeper into your yoga practice and closer to yourself: nurture yourself with healthy food, sunshine and the beaches of a beautiful Greek island, pamper yourself with massages or curl up with a book, get adventurous with water sports and activities, or have a life changing talk with one of our facilitators or a fellow yogi.

HEALTHY DIET

Throughout the retreat we will be serving you a selection of  plant based, living food meals. We welcome you to take part in the preparation of some of the meals, connect to the vibrant, nurturing energy that food can be and enjoy a sense of community with other inspired women on this beautiful journey.

Go home with recipes and inspiration for creating healthy meals for yourself!

YOGA AND MEDITATION SESSIONS

The morning Vinyasa sessions will be themed practices focussing on one chosen aspect of connection with nature around us, or our true inner nature. We will often focus on a peak pose: a pose that is the most complex in that particular practice and that guides us to a greater understanding on the physical, mental or emotional level. Expect expert guidance from an experienced teacher with great attention to avoiding injuries and giving personal assistance and modifications as necessary. 

 

The evening practices will have the purpose of soothing, calming and slowing down, while keeping a conscious presence all the way through. Slowing down allows you to notice details that you perhaps didn’t notice before. 

 

Whatever your level of yoga or meditation practice, by the end of the week you will gain some new perspectives, develop in your physical, mental and spiritual practice and take home with you a lot of new ideas on how to progress by yourself.

RESTORATIVE YOGA

Restorative Yoga is the art of doing nothing in a mindful way. We use props (blocks, cushions, blankets) to create enough support in each pose so you can truly let yourself go, and let your Self go. And then we stay, and stay, and stay in the pose, until you can experience the sweetness of peaceful surrender. Restorative yoga is also a great way to prepare for meditation by experiencing stillness in body, mind and spirit.

Location

At the heart of a mighty Cycladic civilisation in millennia past, and an impoverished backwater following the Axis occupation during WWII, the smallest of the inhabited Cyclades has been transformed in recent years into a fashionable destination – ‘the Mykonos of the Small Cyclades’, a place to wind down after the frenetic action of Mykonos and Santorini.

It’s made up of three main islands, two of which, Kato Koufonisi and Keros, are uninhabited. You’ll arrive at the populated, low-lying Ano Koufonisi. It sees a flash-flood of tourism each summer season thanks to its superb beaches, good hotels and chic restaurants, and its narrow, bougainvillea-fringed main street is a joy to wander along.
