The venue alone allows you to effortlessly feel relaxed and rejuvenated even before the amazing yoga even starts! This retreat is designed with you in mind, as all Yogalife retreats are, but we really want you to submerse yourself in the practice of yoga and completely let go of the hectic western world for just one week.

Your morning begins with a superfood shot and Yogalife’s take on traditional Kriya yoga to clear the sinuses and awaken the body. This is followed by a dynamic yoga session designed to awaken the mind and super charge the body as you draw on the energy from breathtaking views from our outdoor yoga terrace, After a quick freshen up with a shower and maybe a swim in our infinity pool you will be ready for breakfast which will be served on the sun terrace. Expect superfood juices, smoothie bowls, eggs, omelettes, porridge, fruit salad and ice cold water from the well.

You continue your day resting and relaxing, whether thats by kicking back next to the infinity pool watching the world go by, taking a stroll to the beach or just exploring the surrounding gardens, the beauty is; its all completely up to you.

Once rejuvenated you will take part in another specially designed training or yoga session, Yogalife work on all aspects of wellness on the human mind and body, to achieve this all sessions will be unique, challenging and SO rewarding, no matter whether you are a beginner or a yogi veteran we will make sure you get the best out of each session as we always have two teachers assisting in each class to ensue you are working to your best ability. Again, you will have time to rest and relax and upon your return, lunch will be waiting. Delicious soups, lentil dishes, fresh fish, vibrant salads and vegetables and ice cold pressed juices. This brings us nicely to the afternoon which again can be spent relaxing by the pool soaking up the sun with a good book, listening to chilled music and putting the world to rights with your fellow yogis!

Our third session takes place before dinner, vinyasa and primal movement (a mix of strength and power as well as grace and movement). A well earned evening meal awaits you on your return, each dish packed with nutrients and detoxifying properties to encourage optimum health, our chef as always will offer a fantastic array of local organic produce that may include fresh vegetables, grilled fish, accompanied by rainbow salads & traditional Greek dishes.

Your evening draws to a close with a final session of mediation, themed around deep relaxation and sleep science helping to promote the best sleep environment possible so you fall into a deep NREM slumber (the most powerful healing stage of sleep), take your time to walk back to your room not forgetting to take in the stars and the amazing views, light your aromatherapy candle and drift away while listening to the carefully selected guided sleep mediations.
