 a Transformative group retreat

Embark on a journey of physical, mental and spiritual self-discovery in an intoxicating locale neatly tucked away on Greece’s Peloponnesian coast. Join us for 7-day retreats aimed at personal transformation and renewal.  Use the ancient study and practice of yoga to open and strengthen your physical body, and then dive deep into your psyche using meditation, energy work and group ritual practices. 

With the stunning backdrop of ancient majestic mountains cascading into the gorgeous Agean Sea, explore yoga, meditation and ritual, and discover physical and energetic renewal while awakening your authentic self. From the moment you arrive, Kathy and Shari will take you on a transformative process in the safety of our sacred space to unearth your true essence.  You will transcend boundaries, recharge your spirit and forge new friendships.  An open heart and new connection to self will be the souvenir of this most extraordinary vacation.

Location:  Monemvasia and Limani Gerakas

Our accomodations will be in the picturesque natural harbor, Limani Gerakas, and our practice will continue through the beautiful Byzantine town of Monemvasia.

Imagine the indulgence of having a weeklong vacation catered just for you! While our retreat is packed with good-for-you yoga and energy practices, we’ve built in lots of time for you to savor the gorgeous surroundings, and encourage you to do so! Sip your morning coffee on your private terrace overlooking the sea, sit under the shade of an olive tree for some journaling and introspection, luxuriate in a solitary swim, enjoy a leisurely late dinner by the water, take a nice long nap to escape the mid-day sun; we’ve built in lots of time to slow down and absorb the goodness that surrounds you! 

 

Specifics of the retreat include:

  • all inclusive accommodations on Greece's beautiful Peloponnesian Coast
  • daily yoga, meditation and energy work with other like-minded, wellness-seeking and adventurous individuals
  • wellness concierge for customized goal-meeting plans
  • nutritious and delicious meals sourced from organic, local farms
  • local wine
  • a private boating excursion to secluded beaches
  • an evening of live musical entertainment and dance
  • archeological hikes for meditation
  • tours of the local culture
  • transportation to and from Athens

No one knows how to live life better than the Greeks! Learn to live in joy not only through epicurian pleasures of dance, food and wine but also the spiritual pleasures of slowing down, asana and meditation on the beach, healing energy work under ancient olive groves, hikes up ancient mountains. Music and dancing the night away under the stars all with like-minded spiritual seekers.

Cruise a private vessel to secluded pristine beaches, indulge in thalassotherapy, nourish your body and soul with the delicious cuisine and wine, absorb the charming local culture, and rest in simple yet comfortable suites overlooking the sea. Yes, this place is hard to leave. But imagine the possibilities of such a stay. Transformation awaits.

As your own spirit takes command, the world will also yield to its force.

Would you love to honestly question what’s not working in your life and be able to let go of what does not serve you?

If the thought of deep self-inquiry frightens you, rest assured you’re not alone! All transformation requires bravery to ask questions and seek answers. In this retreat, you will cultivate bravery and learn to meet your edge with intelligence, compassion and grace. Challenge yourself physically with a new yoga pose, learn to channel your breath for a deeper connection to spirit, and surrender to the sensual movements of Shamanic dance. Sprinkle in some ancient wisdom and you will be a peaceful warrior ready to take on the world. 

 

How would it feel to discover your true self, your joy, and creative spirit?

Ready to feel passionate about something new? There’s no greater fuel for igniting your creativity than time spent learning and exploring. From horticulture to ancient architecture, Byzantine Art to contemporary music, this retreat is filled with activities that are ripe for feeding your intellect with new ideas from the past and present. Imagine what you will discover!
