Glorious Greece


A Yoga + Wellness Adventure in Paros

Please join us on a Greek adventure to the Island of Paros!

Immerse yourself in the serenity of Paros, a hidden gem nestled in the heart of the Aegean Sea. Picture yourself awakening to the soothing sounds of the waves, and feeling the sea breeze on your skin. This is the perfect backdrop for your week of adventure and self-discovery.

Our retreat offers a harmonious blend of invigorating + gentle yoga, guided meditation, mini-reiki sessions during yoga, and a creativity workshop. Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or new to the practice, our tailored classes cater to all levels, providing an opportunity to deepen your practice and enhance your well-being.

But that’s not all - we’re all about embracing adventure, creating joyful experiences, and exploring the places we visit! We’ll spend a day aboard our private charted boat, exploring the crystal-clear turquoise waters around the island. We’ll also take a day trip to Delos and Mykonos. You’ll visit the open-air archaeological site and birthplace of Artemis + Apollo on Delos, then enjoy an afternoon in Mykonos.

Our retreat is designed to foster meaningful connections. Share laughter, stories, and delicious meals with fellow travelers as you create lifelong friendships, strengthen existing relationships, and find your people. Engage in soulful conversations, partake in heart-opening classes, and experience the true essence of community.

Indulge your senses with the delicious and nourishing locally-sourced vegetarian cuisine, and slumber in eco-chic rooms designed in harmony with the surrounding environment. Our retreat center is situated on a relatively untouched shoreline where the rawness of the land lends itself to self-reflection and unplugging.

 

Come experience the magic of Paros. Rediscover yourself, rekindle connections, and embrace peace and joy. This is your opportunity to embark on an unforgettable journey of self-discovery and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Limited to 14 students.
(You don’t have to do yoga to come on this adventure) :)

We are good friends who live on opposite coasts of the U.S. and have been co-leading retreats since 2014. We are huge wanderlusters at heart and love creating amazing experiences that immerse you in a place, show you its most special parts, its delicious food, unique culture and landscape, while also nourishing your well-being.

In addition to creating unforgettable retreat experiences, we love combining our unique talents for guiding you through yoga + meditation, providing reiki, and leading workshops that promote your inner growth.

We look forward to sharing these practices and more with you on the dreamy island of Paros, Greece.
