Yoga Holiday in Southern Greece

  • Varese, VA, Italia
  • Jul 22 - 29, 2019 (8 days)

About This Event

I have been traveling to this part of Greece since 1995 and since then,  almost every year, I’ve been taking groups of people from all parts of the world, for teacher trainings, retreats or simply to share together a different kind of holiday in a pristine environment, with amazing beaches in total silence, calm and relax.

A few years ago came across Aquamarine Hotel and fell in love with the place and the people who run it. Aquamarine is a three star newly-built hotel, just a few meters from the idyllic and sandy  beach of Neratziona. Not far away, there is the well-known beach of Pounta as well as the island of Elafonisos with its notorious beach of Simos.

“That nature of yoga is to shine the light of awareness into the darkest corners of the body." ~ Jason Crandell

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

After having just completed my RYT 200 I have been inspired to further my yoga journey and my own personal journey inward. I have fallen in love with yoga and how it has changed my life and I just want to continue to explore so I can share this beautiful gift with as many as possible. Jessica
