About us

Join Vito in incredible, gorgeous Greece where the warmth and stunning beauty of this Greek isle will relax and transform you. We will be staying at luxurious 5-star resort located directly above a secluded beach and overlooking the sparkling Mediterranean Sea below.

Each morning practice will be uniquely themed, and will build stability, strength, flexibility and awareness followed by a guided Loving Kindness meditation.  The intention of the week will be to become increasingly open to the beauty of yourself, your surroundings, and new friendships.  Afternoon practices will either build on the opening created from morning practice, allow a more yin to the the yang of morning practice, and/or provide opportunities to explore questions about yoga as well as support a personalized understanding of the asana.  There will be opportunities to help you understand, and practice poses that may challenge you.  We will open in every range of motion, expand hearts and minds, leaving more at ease in our bodies, and with ourselves in the world.

In this serene setting we will not only be diving deep into our yoga practice but will have ample time to enjoy treatments in the award-winning spa and incredible meals prepared by skilled chefs who use the best quality fresh and local ingredients to create truly memorable dishes. Hand-carved out of the hillside rock with one-of-a-kind architecture and chic, minimalist yet comfortable interior design this hotel has all of amenities and services you would expect from an award-winning property. This week will surely leave you uplifted, relaxed and rejuvenated!
