Fightmaster Yoga Greek Island Retreat

June 30 to July 6, 2018

Location: Koufonisia

Our retreat will be held at the beautiful oceanfront Koufonisi Villas - Koufonisia means “the hollow islands” in Greek – two low little islands of a friable rock have had their coastlines nibbled away by the wind and waves to form wonderful beaches and caves and strange rock formations. Not easy to get to, not much to do – this is the Cyclades as they were 50 years ago. You’ll love it!

Koufonisi Villas boasts beautiful sand, relaxing living areas, and an open air yoga shala. Beautiful sunsets are guaranteed every night.

Koufonisi Villas offers peaceful and off the beaten path vibes, in a caring and family-like environment, dedicated to yogic practice.

Koufonisi Villas offers Greek style accommodations with:

  • Vegan, mostly raw food made from local seasonal ingredients. Menus are created by the amazing in-house chef, Esco and are served family style. I cannot even begin to describe the deliciousness of his food. He has such a passion and love for his creations:

The shala’s wooden floors and concrete walls are a perfect balance to the open-air sheer curtains. The shala is fully equipped with yoga mats, blocks, and straps.
