About the retreat

By the Time the Boat arrives at the tiny Port of Koufonisi you can take your shoes off and never wear them again. That’s the Spirit of the Island-carefree and easy. No Question, crystal clear turquoise blue water, sandy velvet white beaches, fresh Aegean air without any toxin exhaust fumes and the holistic fertile soil of this conscious island is what charges everyone of us up and fill us with new Energy. Your body, mind, and soul are not only going to recharge from your stressed daily business life you also will detox yourself from all bad habits clear your thoughts and becoming lighter whiles shining your biggest brightness. During these 5 Days, I’m sharing my passion for yoga, meditation, fire ceremonies, and ecstatic Dance movements along with simple ayurvedic tips for living a healthy life. There is no better Place for all these to happen than the magical island of Koufonisi. A Place where the meaning of greek summer is condensed in 3km golden sand, mythical caves and the most glittery water in the Aegean. 5 days of this island adventure is the best recipe to start living your life to the fullest. Walk everywhere you want, swim from one beach to another, and be on your swimsuit all day long. The meaning of vacationing condensed on a small Cyclades island. This is the absolute hideaway for those who want to escape the ordinary and get a taste of what real island life means! By the time you leave, you’ll be a local!

Yoga teacher

Namasté my friend, I am your Yogateacher educated on Bali, based in Germany with roots from Greece. As I am half German and half Greek therefore I got blessed with two names. Julia the German one and Georgia the Greek temperament. After my Yoga Alliance certified Teacher Training on Bali I have started teaching yoga classes or personal on Bali, Germany, Spain, Greek and Switzerland so far. Besides my weekly yogaclasses in Germany, i’m hosting my own Yogaretreats and I could not imagine any better, magical and sacred place then the epic Islands of the Aegean the Kyklades. My Lifestyle is built on three pillars, it’s my daily Yoga practice on and off the mat, a holistic vegan diet influenced by Ayurveda and the healing power of music. Iyengar Yoga kindled the light in me and since day one it shines brighter and bigger. The Practice of Iyengar Yoga gives me the opportunity to perform the asanas very accurately and correct to be able to develop the full effect on the body system in order to heal illnesses and ailments of my students. I combine that static poses with the flowing practice of Vinyasa to teach the never-ending flow of life accompanied by the constant change of our Mother Earth and other planets. My Yogastyle ends in Yin Yoga to unfold the Energy of the previous exercises in deep relaxation. Besides my Yoga education, I studied nutrition science in Switzerland to become a holistic nutritionist. This gives me all the skills I need to know about a plant-based diet, that I’ve been on for 8 years. Music and Dancing is my Soulfood. During my childhood, I have always come into contact with the essence of music. Weather influenced by my mom, who is a thoroughbred musician or one of my older sisters, who studied music. In my mid 20 after trying out a lot in that business, I arrived and Yoga helped me to figure out the Rhythm of my Life. As an ecstatic dance DJ, I guide people through a moving meditative Dance experience. It’s the Joy of celebrating Life in the here&now. Music is the World’s number one language and there is no other ritual who connects people from totally different states of minds than the Rhythm and Beat of Music no matter the Genre. It’s the sacred Sound of Music that makes us all feel better. On my Yoga retreats, I share this kind of meditation with you. Let me say it in the words of Gloria Estefan “It’s the Rhythm of the Island, don’t you worry if you can’t dance, let the music move your feet”

Retreat accommodation

Let the zen juices flow in a boho chic stay! Our Koufonisi resort looks like an island painting. Its white shapes fade into the light brown landscape creating a strong contrast with the turquoise background of the water. Our retreat takes place into two neighboring villas which together with an outdoor covered yoga shala and a Thai-style massage room create a unique space to unwind and yoga finds a new meaning. Open spaces let the landscape flow into the interior, which features a joyful blend of traditional and contemporary elements. The palette is playful, with the dominating earth tones highlighted by vivid splashes of color. Both villas have large outdoor spaces, open terraces and bamboo shaded dining areas, ideal for hosting Greek style feasts. The main villa has a large open-plan kitchen which is used by our private chef to prepare our meals and for hands-on food workshops & tastings. The bedrooms are comfortable and cozy, with carefully selected fabrics and funky accessories, a touch of whimsy that creates a loving, homely atmosphere. The lower level of the villas is also brightly decorated and equipped with skylights to let the sunlight in.
