Description

7 day Yoga in Santorini – A YogaYamas Retreat

Words are not enough to describe the mysterious energy of this island. The island of Santorini is located in the southern part of Aegean Sea, it is considered one of the top 10 worldwide destinations and one of Greece’s great attraction because of its volcanic beauty, myth, history, mystical power and vast sacredness.

One of the island’s names as Homer mentions in his work is Kallístē, which means ‘the most beautiful one ‘. The majestic energy of Santorini is related with the Atlantis myth and as soon as you arrive in the island you will feel a special aura welcoming your entire system. That’s one of the reasons we chose Santorini for our retreats so that everyone can have this significant experiential perspective.

The 7 day Yoga in Santorini – A YogaYamas retreat will take place in hotel Αkrotiri. The hotel is built just next to the beach and offers a unique view of the endless deep blue sea. The sun and moon’s reflection on water is a perfect companion for the hours of relaxation and rest. The hotel is near to the famous Red beach, in ancient Thira and the Lighthouse with the magnificent sunset as well as in just 200 meters you can find Santorini’s most famous fish taverns.

Each day you will be provided with half-board, i.e. a rich breakfast buffet and vegetarian dinner. Nutrition will be based in Mediterranean diet which increases the energy levels and promote better health. (Meat can be provided only upon request).
