Mel´s blissful Greece Retreat 

Athens, Paros - September 17. - 22. 2019


For 20 years, Greece, in particular the Cycladic island of Paros has been a place of inspiration for me. A place were I can easily quiet the mind.  The unbelievable beauty of the island, the soothing blue, the fascinating sunsets, the expanse of the sky will let you arrive in the present moment immidiately. 

In countless moments in the last 10 years (yoga retreats, courses, workshops), I was fortunate enough to meet and be surrounded by strong and amazing women and yogis alike. Acknowledging that women can accomplish amazing things when we support each other is a beautiful tool to have. The opportunity to share knowledge, engage in profound conversations, movement and in silence together - as you are - surrounded by other women is an unique experience. A journey in which we will also walk to the ancient sanctuaries such as the Acropolis, take time to listen, draw strength and energy from yoga and meditation, load our energy channels and enjoy the beauty of Greece. I cherish taking you along this trip! You deserve it! 


A morning yoga sessions followed by guided relaxation and some journaling time/intention setting. After our morning session we will walk to Magaya Beach Restaurant (only a view steps away) and have breakfast. During the day there will be free time to go on an excursion or unwind by the beach. In the evenings there will be a restorative yoga class before dinner.


Here’s what a typical day might look like:


08.30 Meet up at the beautiful yard of our Studio. 

09.00 - 10.00 Yoga practice and relaxation at Yoga Magaya

10.00 - 11.30 Breakfast at Magaya Beach Restaurant or Catering. 

11.30 - 16.00 We will be heading to the beautiful fishing village on the island of Paros - Naoussa. Strolling around the stone paved streets with the typical whitewashed houses, visiting the Venetian fortress from the 15th century, or if you wish you are welcome to lounge on the beach and enjoy the magnificent views and enjoy some free time. 

17.00 - 18.00 We are meeting back at our Yoga Room, for an easy and restorative Yoga Practice before dinner time.  Socialize or relish in quiet time afterwards
