Yoga Retreat in Ancient Greece
The valley of Eftalou has been said to be one of the most peaceful places for a Yoga Retreat. Minutes walk from the Aegean Sea, and an ancient hot spring. Practice Yoga each morning and early evening, then spend your afternoons exploring the neighboring city of Molivos, lying by the sea, or enjoying one of the many charming tavernas. This retreat is open to all levels of practice, and the history and philosophy of the island of Lesvos and Greek culture will be incorporated into the retreat.
Type of Event
The retreat will begin at 5pm Friday the 3rd of July and complete by 12pm on Friday the 10th of July.
$875 for Retreat, which includes entire course, and materials, plus an opening and closing meal. Lodging and transportation not included. I recommend booking your lodging at one of three hotels in the Eftalou area: The Panselinos Hotel, The Sunrise Hotel or Molivos II Hotel. Room rates will vary from 30-65 Euros per night. Please contact retreat host for complete lodging details.
Practicing Yoga in the valley of Eftalou, on the island of Lesvos is pure magic. It has been said that it is one of the most peaceful places for a Yoga retreat in the entire world. Victor Van Kooten and Angela Farmer have created one of the most beautiful Yoga practice spaces one has ever experienced and I am overjoyed to have been invited to lead a retreat in their incredibly sacred space. The Yoga hall is set amongst a grove of olive trees, down in a valley just a few minutes walk from the Aegean Sea. It is an incredibly special place to expand and deepen your connection to yourself, and your Yoga practice. Join me on the journey of a lifetime to the ancient land of Greece, on the quiet island of Lesvos.
The retreat will begin on Friday afternoon July 3rd, and will complete Friday morning July 10th. Each day a morning asana practice will be offered from 9am -12pm, and every evening a meditative and restorative practice will be offered from 5:30-7pm. The Yoga hall provides all necessary Yoga props. An opening and a closing family style Greek meal will be included in the retreat. You will be responsible for booking, arranging and paying for your personal lodging and transportation. The recommended hotel is the Panselinos Hotel in Eftalou. It is approximately a fifteen minute walk along the sea from the hotel to the Yoga hall. There are other guesthouses and hotels in the area as well, but may be further away. There are plenty of places listed on Trip Advisor as well for Eftalou and neighboring Molivos.
