Description

5 Day Yoga & Meditation Retreat on Mykonos Island

Join us for a deeply relaxing and transformative small-group retreat experience, full of Yoga, Mindfulness and Meditation on the famous Greek island of Mykonos, staying on a stunning sea view villa with private pool overlooking the Aegean Sea!

The retreat is for everyone; from beginners to the more advanced students. Athina has many years’ experience and will accommodate you based on where your level of practice is at the moment.

In between the practices there will be ample free time to relax by the swimming pool or to the nearby Agrari beach. You will have time to book and enjoy personal Thai Yoga Massage or Reiki sessions with Athina.

During your stay you will also have the option to book a car or a bike to do some island sightseeing or even book personalised experiences, like visiting the Ancient Greek island of Delos or visiting the local organic dairy farm and immerse to the local island life.

Accommodation

The villa is elegant and spacious, set in a privileged wind-sheltered location above the marvellous golden sand Agrari Beach with magnificent views of the Aegean Sea. Although located just 10 minutes by car from town, the property is offering tranquility, privacy and stunning scenery.

Agrari Beach, with its intimate charm and crystal clear water, is just a quick 10 min walk downhill. The villa’s charming interior, schemed in light blue, white and ochre, could be described as “beach house style” combining traditional elements of Cycladic architecture with provincial selected details.

The outdoor spaces, surrounded by rocky hills and Mediterranean herbs, embrace the true spirit of summer life as they allow living each moment of the day in total comfort and relaxation.

An array of two-level sitting areas and one distinct dining/lounge pergola-shaded area, paired with a stone-sculpted dining table and a traditional wood fire BBQ, is offering guests a perfect entertaining area. An elegant infinity pool surrounded by a very spacious sun deck with comfortable summer furniture dominates the villa’s terrace well accompanied by a covered pergola providing shading.

Teachers

ATHINA VAKALI
I was born in Athens in 1974. Long before yoga came to my life, I studied International Relations in Athens, continued with my Master’s degree in Maritime Law at Cardiff University and then attended the Executive Leadership Course of London Business School.

My magical journey with Yoga began in 2002 alongside my professional career in Shipping where I worked for nearly two decades. I obtained my teaching degree in Hatha Yoga RYT200 from Ghyta Yoga School and teaching Yoga to children from Yoga Kids International and from Rainbow Yoga Kids. In 2013, I decided to focus exclusively on teaching Yoga.

In 2016 I had the honour of studying with Michael Stone completing his Mindfulness Meditation Facilitation Mentorship Program and his Yoga Ethics Course. In 2017 I completed my 14 months’ studentship with Alessandro Ortona, alongside whom I have been studying since. Over the years, I have attended workshops with Richard Freeman, John Friend, Doug Swenson, Patrick Broome, among others.

I give Reiki treatments having obtained 1st and 2nd degree initiations and since 2015 I also give Thai Massage sessions having been certified in Thai Massage Level 1 from Mindful Touch Training.

What past guests have said

”Athina is a great retreat organiser and yoga teacher. She has a calm and authentic way of being, showing care for every member of the group, eager to assist with poses when required and to help us connect with the practice always respecting our own capabilities and needs. The location was beautiful, the house we stayed in was great! Excellent choices! Athina thank you so much for the taking care of us!”. Hara, 44

”I’ve been practicing with Athina 3 years now and this year I decided to join her summer retreat. The experience was more than perfect. It was exactly what I needed! Don’t miss it!”. Nikolas, 33

”I have been regularly practicing yoga with Athina since September 2015 and I have been following her on her summer retreats. Athina is a teacher of unique calmness, patience and faith believing both in the practice and in the human potential. She is loving and caring, but also disciplined and focused when needed. Athina’s style of teaching in combination with the extremely powerful landscape made me leave the island fully energised, alert and ready to be in the present moment for the months to follow.” Christiana, 37
