ABOUT OUR GREECE YOGA RETREATS:

 

Our yoga retreats in Mykonos offer a healthy balance between daily yoga classes and simply enjoying life on a beautiful island, with yoga overlooking the sea, a private beach, a luxury spa, and 5-star hotel service. We hold morning and evening yoga classes, with plenty of time to explore the island, enjoy a massage, learn a new water sport, or relax on the beach. Good food, good wine, group activities or time on your own – you decide!

 

Our classes are suited to all yoga levels from beginners to advanced, morning classes are active and quite invigorating based on Vinyasa flow, while evening classes are more restorative, based on Yin yoga, holding poses longer and with added meditation and longer relaxation. We practice yoga every day except for the 4th morning to allow people to visit Delos island or just sleep in a little longer. Our groups are small, normally 10-12 people, and we welcome solo travelers, on average about half of the people on our yoga retreats come on their own.

 

LUXURY YOGA RETREAT ACCOMMODATION:

 

We are hosting our yoga retreat at the 5-star Myconian Imperial Hotel & Thalasso Spa:

A member of The Leading Hotels Of The World, the Myconian Imperial Hotel & Thalasso Spa is situated directly on Elia beach, one of the most beautiful spots on Mykonos, famous for its blue turquoise sea and incredible views out towards the Aegean -- and one of the best places in Greece for a yoga holiday. The hotel is an easy commute into Mykonos town, with regular shuttle service throughout the day until 1am.

 

With its own private beach, thalasso-spa, two outdoor pools, health center and several restaurants, the hotel offers plenty of services to keep you entertained in between yoga classes. Spa facilities include sauna, jacuzzi, steam room, two indoor heated pools, aromatherapy and thalassotherapy services, massages, facials, manicures and pedicures.

 

The double and twin Deluxe Seaview rooms have all the amenities and comforts you can expect from a 5-star hotel, with twice daily housekeeping service. And there are several dining and bar options at the hotel, including a fine-dining greek restaurant, an international cuisine option, a restaurant offering grilled meat and seafood overlooking the sea, and two cocktail bars.

ABOUT MYKONOS:

 

Mykonos is known worldwide for its jet-setting crowd and its nightlife, but there’s so much more to this island:

Mykonos has over 20 gorgeous beaches, many with umbrellas and sunbeds, as well as more secluded ones, and all are easily reachable by car or scooter, taxi or bus.

 

The main town of Mykonos is a maze of narrow streets curving through white-washed houses and boutique shops. During the day there's a sense of tranquility and peace, while in the evening the town comes alive with tourists and locals sitting outside at the many restaurants and bars. Sunsets overlooking the famous Little Venice area are magical, with the familiar windmills perched above the town.

 

Eating in Mykonos is a true culinary experience, from top beach restaurants to gourmet cuisine in town, the food is fresh, healthy and delicious. And after dinner, Mykonos offers something for everyone, from cozy cafés by the sea to busting bars with all the latest hits. Enjoy the evening with a cocktail and good conversation, or join the rest of Mykonos and its exciting nightlife.
