Description

Relax and Refresh Yoga Retreat at Caveland, Santorini

It’s my honour to lead an inspiring heartfelt retreat at the wanderlust boutique Hostel Caveland in Santorini. Nestled in the serenity of the Aegean-sea where island life meets luxury, you will enjoy yoga, meditation, relaxation, and deep transformation under the mindful guidance of the pure love the island has to offer.

This Relax and Refresh Yoga Retreat at Caveland is for anyone looking to create time and space for internal observation under the Aegean light. Get ready to hit the pause button and let yourself flow through your island days with grace.

A luxury boutique hostel in one of Santorini’s’ finest sea-view combined with volcano boat visits, hikes along the famous blue-white little villages, kayak or catamaran tours during a sunset, visit museums or sacred churches, climb a rock and afterwards have a downtown stroll with a sunset meditation on the famous skaros rock.

Do not only fall in love with this vibrant seething white picturesque scenery but with yourself. The perfect combination of silent vibes and island zen.

My take on Santorini is to release the senses and reveal the gentle side of the island that only a few people knew. This island has everything your heart desires to live. Could this be your soul calling? A soul dressed in blue-white invites you to discover your true power of healing and transformation.

All of this waits for you to retreat and rejoice. This journey of awakening the senses, open the hearts and relaxes into the concepts of soul, spirit and environment couldn’t have had a better place to happen than the unique designed and rebuild wine Caves of the Caveland boutique Hostel in Santorini. Finally, your relaxation is completed by an hour-long massage of your choice.

Yoga

Yoga practices take place on a beautiful terrace with views to  Fira Town, Karterados, and the Aegean Sea. I will host two yoga classes daily, each flow is uniquely designed to be like a hug to the mind and soul.

There will be 90 minutes morning and evening sessions, suitable for beginners as well as advanced participants. The first Sessions will be focused on feeling good within the body and gradually making it stronger and lighter. I will start by breaking down simple poses while building a consistent practice which by the end of the Retreat you will be able to do anywhere and at any time, according to your needs and level of practice.

Mornings will be dedicated to flowy and dynamic Vinyasa sessions, mixed with steady elements of Hatha/Iyengar yoga, while afternoons will be more gentle, with stretching and restorative yoga. The whole Yoga practice is accompanied by my main focus on Yin & Yang Yoga to bring you in a completely balanced mood.

Chakra Balancing, Breathing exercises as well as Guided Meditation, either in a seated calm position or in a flowing movement are part of your yoga experience. This is a once in a lifetime experience, having an unforgettable one that you can take home afterwards.

Cuisine

A daily fresh vegetarian with vegan option breakfast is served in the garden right after the morning practice.

Accommodation

Your accommodation with its ethereal nature and historic private caves and this Retreat invites you to unwind and just simply be.

Located in the small village of Karterados, a 20-minute walk from Fira town, Caveland has its beauty and history perfectly combined. All the pictures online didn’t prepare for the reality of Caveland. Once people come to Caveland they extend their stay because they never slept in such a beautiful unique designed hostel, that doesn’t waste the feeling of missing any luxury amenities and of course the pool is a Highlight.

Aptly named because of the cave-like accommodations that used to be a winery back in the 1700s, everything in it fits the light and airy atmosphere of Santorini, with its light-coloured walls and artistic bric-a-brac decorating the place.

The small touches — from the wall mosaic made of discarded red tiles to the chandelier made of grape vines — give Caveland a unique and very personal touch.

Each decor has its own story to tell, and there is nobody more willing to share it than their creator, Cavelands co-owner Kostas Sakavaras. Kostas, is behind the main design ideas. He enjoys spending his time finding old, unwanted items before restoring them to fit the atmosphere and personality of the hostel. He and his wife Veronica are both also Yogis, so the zen and Yoga spirit unwinds the whole venue and stay.

The island of Santorini itself is highly volcanic and back in the day, people dug into the rock for safety, turning caves into houses.
Now, with the opening of a boutique hostel that is Caveland, a complex of cave houses and terraces with beautiful views can be enjoyed!

Caveland takes eco-friendliness to the next level! Reusing and recycling are very important to the staff here. It is carried out whenever and wherever possible. Especially on an island, resources are limited. The hostel understands this. When you wander around you may notice that a lot of the furniture has been upcycled: what once was a crumbling cabinet, has now become an eye-catching centrepiece for one room – a perfect time, money and resource saver.

It’s the little things we love about a place and for Caveland, it has to be the reuse of marmalade jars as cups! On a whole, this hostel is locally managed and the perfect space for a unique Yoga retreat with special unique people, like you.

Location and how to get here

There are many cheap flights from around the world they take you either in one way or by a stopover to Santorini Airport.
If you want to spend Time before or after the Retreat in Athens or another Greek island you can also reach and leave Santorini Port by boat.

The Retreat Venue is located in Karterados, the first village you will pass when heading south from Fira town, the capital of the Santorini island. Karterados is about 5 minutes drive/25 min walk from Fira town. Coming from Fira town, port or an airport, please ask the bus or a taxi driver to stop you at the fork at the Multimedia market/ Zotos bakery. Leaving Fira town behind you, there is the downhill road on your left and continue all the way down for about 5-7 minutes.

You will pass a police station, a windmill, 2 mini markets. Still continue all the way downhill until you see 2 tennis courts, Caveland sign and vineyards. The Caveland sign is a small wooden sign that you will see on your left on your eye level.
If you prefer to avoid the walk during the heat of the day, please contact me for the option to organize you a paid transfer. Note, in the early season the transfers might not be available. Caveland is a large property nested in the middle of an old vineyard and therefore its location is tucked away from the busy crowds of tourists.

VIA BOAT
Santorini  (code JTR) can be reached via boat from many other Greek islands and Athens (code PIR). Tickets can be booked online at viva.gr.

BY BUS
To get to Karterados with a local bus is very easy, we are the second last stop before Fira town (island’s capital) of every bus coming from any location in the South of the island. If you take a local bus, you purchase your ticket inside the bus.  The fare is €2.20 from Athinios port and €1.60 from Thira airport.  These buses are scheduled in direct accordance with the ferry and plane schedules. They are operated by ‘KTEL’ and are typically a blue/green colour. In Karterados you get off at ZOTOS bakery and then you just follow the walking instructions. Ask the driver to stop at Zotos in Karterados.

TAXI
If you take a taxi, ask them to bring you to “tennis club”, which is the name CAVELAND used to have from the early ’80s and is well known to local taxi drivers. You should not pay more than €20 one way.

CAR
Renting a vehicle immediately upon arrival and drive yourself here is yet another option. Rental prices vary depending on vehicle model and rental agency, but you can expect a price between €20 and €40 per day.
