Yoga from our terrace on our Luxury Yoga Retreat in Greece - Yoga Escapes




17-24 May 2015

6-13 June 2015

19-26 September 2015





If you need some time to recharge but don’t want to go on a remote yoga retreat far away from everything, our Mykonos yoga holiday offers just the perfect balance – there’s plenty to see and do, but there’s also plenty of quiet time and space to relax.


And we don't think you need to deprive yourself on a yoga retreat – yoga is at the core of our retreats, but we do like to enjoy a nice holiday at the same time.


We'll stay at a gorgeous 5* hotel on the beach, enjoy delicious meals and spa treatments, we’ll offer up day trips and plan group dinners, but everything is optional – completely up to you.


Mykonos is absolutely beautiful, and we’ll be there to take care of all your needs and show you all our favorite places.


What to expect?


  • Yoga twice a day with amazing views
  • A superb 5* hotel on the beach
  • Large seaview rooms
  • Delicious healthy meals
  • Top-rated spa in Greece
  • A daily thalasso-therapy treatment on us
  • Charming town with cafés and shops
  • Stunning beaches
  • Plenty of activities and day trips
  • An easygoing group
  • No rules, we eat and drink what we like
  • Personalized service with two Yoga Escapes reps on location


What style of yoga classes, and can beginners join?


Sure! We have all yoga levels on our retreats from beginners to advanced, and Holly Warren our yoga teacher will modify poses so you can practice at your own pace. Holly is absolutely fantastic, she has over 20 years of experience and teaches people to become yoga teachers. So you’ll most definitely learn a lot from her and you’ll surely see an improvement in your own practice.


She’ll teach a Vinyasa flow class in the morning, which is quite active and invigorating, and a heavenly restorative Yin yoga class in the evening with a longer relaxation. All on a lovely terrace in the shade of a Greek church, with spectacular views out to sea.


Come along even on your own:


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. We have people joining us from all over the world – many European countries, the US and Canada, Australia, South Africa to name a few… and we love to learn from each other.


Daily itinerary:


8:30–10am:   Active Vinyasa flow yoga class

10–11am:      Breakfast

11am–6pm:   Free time, beach, town, spa..

6–7pm:           Restorative Yin yoga class

Evening:         Dinner in town or beach


We've included plenty more details below about the yoga week, but feel free to contact us directly with any questions or to book your place.




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

We tried out numerous hotels in Mykonos before settling on this one – it is truly wonderful! A member of The Leading Hotels Of The World, the Myconian Imperial Hotel & Thalasso Spa is located directly on Elia beach, one of the most beautiful spots on Mykonos. The hotel is an easy commute into town, with regular shuttle service throughout the day.


It has its own private beach (and you can find many of us there during the day!), a thalasso-therapy center (and yes we go there often as well, you get a complementary daily treatment on us), two outdoor pools and a health center.


Not to mention the spa facilities: sauna, jacuzzi, steam room, two indoor heated pools, aromatherapy services, massages, facials, manicures and pedicures. It’s been voted one of the top spas in Greece – definitely worth a treat.


We’ll stay in spacious Deluxe Seaview rooms with gorgeous views, and they’ll come by and clean your room twice a day. There are also several restaurants at the hotel including a fine-dining Greek restaurant, poolside lunch service, an international cuisine option, a restaurant offering grilled meat and seafood, and a low-key outdoor cocktail bar.

Mykonos is known worldwide for its jet-setting crowd, but there’s so much more to this lovely island. We know it well and will be happy to give you all sorts of recommendations:

There are over 20 gorgeous beaches, some with umbrellas and sunbeds, and some more secluded – many are worth a day trip. And a trip to Mykonos is not complete without a visit to the charming main town – a maze of narrow streets and white-washed houses right by the sea. It’s quiet during the day, perfect for boutique shopping. And in the evening, the town comes alive with locals and tourists taking a stroll and sitting outside the restaurants and cafés. The sunsets overlooking the famous Little Venice near the windmills are magical – another must.


We love to eat well, and Mykonos has fantastic food. It's super fresh and healthy – your typical Mediterranean diet. We’ll take you to the most delicious restaurants in town and on the beach. And for those who have some energy left after dinner, there’s something for everyone, from cozy cafés by the sea to bustling bars with all the latest hits. We’ll even go dancing one evening for those who want to experience the fun Mykonos nightlife!

We strongly suggest booking your flights in advance – airline prices increase substantially.


Mykonos can be reached either by airplane or boat. Some airlines fly directly to Mykonos only on certain days of the week. If direct flights are not available, an alternative is to fly to Athens and then take a fast boat or internal flight to Mykonos on Olympic Air or Aegean Airlines (40 minute flight). Once in Mykonos, your transfer to the hotel will be waiting to meet you.


Plan to arrive at some point on the first day, yoga classes will start the next morning. 

If you wish to arrive earlier or stay longer, please let us know, we can help arrange that with the hotel.



The airlines below have direct flights to Mykonos from several European cities:


Easyjet, Thomson, Air Berlin, FlyNiki, Vueling, Meridiana, Blu-express, Condor, TUIfly, Germanwings, JetairFly, Lauda, Transavia, Aegean Airlines, Olympic Air



There are daily fast catamaran boats from the port of Rafina (closest to Athens airport). The trip takes approximately 2 hours. There are also boats from port of Piraeus in Athens city center: from here the trip takes approximately 5 hours by ferry, or 3-4 hours by high-speed boat. For all boat schedules visit the Greek Travel Pages website.
