Transformational Joyful Yoga Retreat in Sifnos Greece, 23rd – 30th September


Escape to some of the most breathtaking parts of Greece, away from the tourist crowds where you can practice yoga, pilates, mindfulness and meditation against a backdrop of the beautiful Mediterranean sea.

I’m so happy to be taking you on a joyful yoga retreat to my favorite place on the planet, one of the most authentic and spiritual Greek Islands for 7 days of deeply transformational yoga practice. This week will allow you to access your inner strength and wisdom to reach a place of complete alignment with your deepest Self and manifest your true potential into the world.

We will be feeding on locally grown organic food, practicing Jivamukti yoga morning and evenings, creating beautiful friendships, discovering one of the most special Greek islands while staying in a gorgeous villa, setting powerful intentions and letting go of what no longer serves us to expand to our true potential.

During the retreat, there will be 2 daily yoga practices of around 90 minutes in the morning and before sunset. A total of 13 classes combining asana, chanting, meditation, intention setting, pranayama, and spiritual teachings. We will explore the asana practice through both dynamic vinyasa and restorative practices, challenging your own pre-established boundaries to progress into a new space, letting go of old patterns that no longer serve you.

Through dedicated workshops we will explore in depth backbends, inversions, the art of vinyasa, deep hip opening and chakra tuning.
