Yoga retreat Greece 2021
Come for a week of deepening yoga, yummy organic food and lots of space for relaxation – all in a stunning location amongst beach and mountains…
Yoga retreat in the Pelopponesus, Greece
In this incredible relaxing Yoga Retreat we will explore the various aspects of Yoga. For the early birds we start with a meditation during the sunrise – that special moment when the world briefly stands still.
After breakfast we wake up the body with a Hatha or Vinyasa practice, after which we have a delicious lunch together.
The afternoon until the evening gives you time for relaxation, exploring the area, taking a quiet walk in the mountains, a relaxing massage or perhaps a private session (yoga or coaching) with Lahma or Margriet. Or you choose to go to the beach to experience the healing power of the sea.
In the early evening, Lahma and Margriet teach you a yin or restorative class, with hands-on adjustments to bring you deeper into the experience of relaxation.
After dinner with fresh local products, there might be a light program for those who like, such as chanting mantras, playing an instrument or relaxing together or alone.

What is a retreat?
To “retreat” means to “withdraw”. You let your everyday life behind to make time for yourself. This is a conscious choice: it is not a holiday week with a packed program, you choose to turn inward. You take the time for yourself, to slow down, and to withdraw, to deepen and to reflect, to breathe…. It can be a period that brings you new insights and ideas about yourself and/or your life.
It works best without too much distraction (read: laptop, phone, email). Yoga and the tranquility of the environment are supporting this. Also the healthy food supports this process: we choose for food that nourishes you and doesn’t just fill you up.
This adds to a feeling of fulfillment and happiness. Food choices influence the mood, in a positive way. That’s why the food is vegetarian (vegan if preferred) with fresh local and whenever possible organic vegetables. We stay away from alcoholic beverages.
