2019 RETREAT SCHEDULE
JUNE 17 – 22 Summer Solstice full moon and summer solstice friday 21 we will sneak into the God Asclepion’s ruins nearby dated 300bc for a meditation. In ancient days seekers and the sick would sleep at the ‘clinic’ and based on their dreams the healers prescribed a remedy.

It’s very exciting for me to finally have my own space and to offer these Retreats! You can use this retreat as a chance to ‘immerse’ yourself in The Practice, as the word RETREAT suggests, stepping back from daily routine, from the mundane. Everything is provided for you, so you can focus on PRACTICE.
Convenient. Restaurants, hotels minutes away and pristine beach within steps of yoga hall. Quiet spots to watch the sunset and plenty of time for rest and reflection. Or, add it to your holiday plans between island hopping from Santorini and Mykonos and the incredible traditional island of Kouffonissia, and sightseeing.
My intention is to share with you the tools that have been offered me regarding this Intricate System, from some incredible teachers I’ve had the great fortune to work with, including Mr Iyengar himself and his family, and many of the Australian Senior Iyengar Yoga Teachers. And, set on this beautiful island with Greek Isle hospitality to make you feel safe and welcome, nutritious local food to energise and comfort, and a beautiful clean safe environment steps from the Aegean Sea where Greek Gods ruled to inspire you. Where their Mythology was written and alters erected to them before Christ still stand. Lots of free time to explore! Plus a down to earth easy going attitude to give space for learning. Your practice will have the chance be transformed to a Deeper Experience.
Yoga cannot be taught. it is learnt. You cannot have your teachers experience, you will have yours.
See you on the matt?
