Yoga Retreat Athens Riviera






Yoga Retreat Athens Riviera

Yoga means unity and is about exploring the body, mind, and spirit through a combination of physical asana, meditation and breathing techniques designed to bring the practitioner into a higher state of being.

This is what our retreats aspire to do – offering the ultimate getaway experience where our guests can focus on nothing but themselves and their practice. You will take your Yoga practice to the next level, surrounded by the breathtaking, raw landscapes of the Athen’s Riviera while staying in a beautiful villa and enjoying the freshest mediterranean inspired meals.



Accommodation:
Our retreat centre is a 6 bedroom luxury villa set on the Athens Riviera. The space is elegant, but with a simple and informal spirit that you will find welcoming and we hope you will come to think of it as your home away from home. Outside, the villa features a landscaped garden and pool area for quiet meditation, reflection and connecting with other participants.

The villa has spacious and fully appointed rooms with ensuite bathrooms and a variety of different sleeping arrangements to insure your complete comfort.


Set away from the crowds of Athens, the villa has a peaceful location near the quiet village of Anavyssos. Ideally situated near the coast, with three emerald-water beaches and a spectacular view of the Saronic Gulf within easy walking distance.



Location


Often overlooked by tourists, the Athens Riviera is a hidden gem along the Saronic Sea; an oasis ripe with scents of the earth, sea and sun and an ideal setting for the communion of mind, body and spirit.

Nearby you can visit the renowned Temple of Poseidon, the Port of Lavrio and it’s silver mining tunnels, or head to the centre of Athens with all of its attractions (located just 45 minutes away, with regular bus service).

The villa is easy to reach, only 25 km by car from the International Airport of Athens (ATH) which receives direct flights from all over Europe.

Nearest airport: Athens (25 km away)


Food

Food is an intrinsic part of our overall health and wellbeing. We use fresh, locally-sourced and organic ingredients whenever possible. Food changes with the seasons, as different months bring different delights to the table. Our cuisine is healthy, exciting and vibrant ─ full of natural Mediterranean flavours.

We’ll do our very best to accommodate dietary restrictions and preferences. Please let us know if you have any.

If we have high demand we will get another boat for 8 people.


This to bring/consider:
* Travel insurance - it might be worthwhile checking with your company to ensure you're covered for sailing activities or any last-minute emergencies, 
* Travel dates - if your schedule allows it, stay an extra day before and after your trip.  Don’t fly in on Saturday and join the boat immediately, then finish your trip on Saturday, then fly out that day, you will miss out on so much of the amazing Old Towns.  Also, the airports are very busy on Saturdays, so allow for an hour to check in during peak times.  
* Rock shoes - the rocks can be sharp and if you have some rock shoes, they may be a handy addition to your luggage (if you plan on a little exploring),
* Luggage - most people tend to over pack for a sailing holiday.  You generally can pack on the light side, just remember your swimmers, something for the evening at dinner and a warm jacket.  Soft bags are preferred on the boat as they're easier to stow away and cause less damage,
* Beach towel - We will provide ben linen and a towel, however if you’d like a beach towel it may pay to bring your own,
* Power adapter - it’s always good to bring a power adapter for any electrical items, including USB cords.  The boat has 2 prong European power points, personal power banks are also a great idea to bring with you, 
* Medication - if you need medication, remember to bring it with you, including seasickness tablets if you get motion sickness.  It’s better to be safe than seasick!
* Music - pack your favourite music on your iPod or MP3 player and remember to pack your aux cable,
* Money - bring cash for dinners in town, as the island may not have an ATM or accept cards
The local currency is called Kuna (1 USD = 6 HRK). We recommend you have 1000 to 2000 HRK on you.
* Shoes - any shoes  with dark or marking soles and heels are not permitted on board.  It would be wise to bring flip-flops or similar for the hot weather,
* Personal - Remember your personal toiletries, including shampoo and to pack your swimmers! 
* Internet – Although we will have WIFI on the boat, if you want permanent internet on your phone/devices, you can buy a T Mobile SIM for €11 which gives you local calling, SMS and 7-days unlimited 4G data.

Other items guests like to bring can also include:
* Underwater camera or GoPro for creating a video of your holiday,
