Greek Island Yoga Retreat


Practice yoga at an exclusive sanctuary that invites you to experience the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation of your life, what more could anyone dream of!
Tiny and secluded, Koufonisia island is the best place for absolute relaxation in Greece. Geographically located south of Naxos, in the centre of the Cyclades, Koufonisia is actually a pair of islands, Ano and Kato Koufonisi. Only Ano Koufonisi is inhabited and has a main port village where taverns and shops are found. All beaches in Koufonisia have exotic turquoise waters and some are used by naturists, like Pori and Fanos. Koufonisia's beaches are amazingly quiet and secluded. 

The retreat starts on Monday afternoon 3pm where we will meet for a grounding practice and orientation, followed by an afternoon swim and dinner at Koufonisi villas’ main dining room. 

The days that follow will spread between yoga practice (each morning and afternoon), 
walks, bicycle rides, visits to the town and little fishingboat tours of the island and its beaches, swimming and enjoying the amazing crystal waters, white soft sand and bright sun on our bodies.

There will be an optional day trip by boat to Amorgos island, a place for lovers of hiking, covered with historical paths passing by villages, monasteries, chapels and abandoned settlement. The landscape with its close-to-the-sea mountains offers fantastic views on nearly every corner, and is where Luc Besson’s movie “The Big Blue” was filmed.
You can enjoy optional massage treatments from an experienced therapist.
Optional diving lessons and diving trips are available.
