Spoil yourself on a yoga retreat in Mykonos.

Yoga Retreat in Mykonos

 9-16 Sept 2017   16-23 Sept 2017  |  May,  June, Sept 2018

If you’re looking for a yoga retreat at a 5* hotel in a beautiful place, but don’t want to go somewhere far away from everything, our yoga retreat in Mykonos offers just the perfect balance – a luxury setting with plenty to see and do, but 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 trips, but we like to enjoy a nice break at the same time. No waking up at dawn, no strict rules on food and drinks, you can skip a yoga class, and you can spend time with the group or on your own – most people do a bit of both.

We’ll stay at a gorgeous 5* hotel on one of the most beautiful beaches in Mykonos, we’ll practice yoga on our terrace with views out to sea. We’ll enjoy delicious meals and spa treatments, and we’ll plan day trips and group dinners. But everything is optional – completely up to you.

Mykonos is the quintessential Greek island, we know it well and two of us from Yoga Escapes will be there to show you the nicest corners!

What to expect

Our yoga teacher and yoga classes are top-quality – that’s the main focus of our yoga retreat in Mykonos. But we appreciate that you’re also looking for some downtime and a chance to relax. So we have no rules, we’re completely flexible with everything, and you can decide how you want to spend your time, no strict schedules to follow. We’ll be there to make sure everything runs smoothly.

Our groups are normally 10-15 people from all over the world, we have many people coming on their own, and we create a warm friendly atmosphere so everyone feels welcome from the start. We’ll practice yoga twice a day, with an active Vinyasa flow class in the morning and an evening restorative Yin yoga class at sunset, and all yoga levels are welcome, even beginners.

Where we are going

Where is the yoga retreat located?

Our yoga retreat in Mykonos is located on stunning Elia beach (see map), one of the most beautiful beaches on the island.

Our 5* hotel is directly on the beach, and we have a separate private section with sunbeds and umbrellas in a quiet spot. The hotel is also close to Mykonos town, about a 15-minute drive (there’s a hotel shuttle bus), and Ano Mera town is just up the street.

We’ll practice yoga on a terrace under the shade of a little white church with magical views out to sea – it’s wonderful. And there’s plenty to do around Mykonos – all sorts of watersports, horseback riding, sailing, shopping, and boat trips to nearby islands.

It’s easy to get to – there are direct flights to Mykonos from several European cities, and also several flights a day from Athens.

About Mykonos

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, as well as a charming 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 people strolling the streets and sitting outside the restaurants and cafés. The sunset overlooking the famous Little Venice near the windmills is magical – another must.

Mykonos has delicious restaurants, and for those who have some energy after dinner, there are cozy cafés to bustling bars by the sea. We’ll go dancing one evening for those who want to experience the Mykonos nightlife!

Luxury Accommodation

5* Myconian Imperial Hotel

We’re hosting our yoga retreats in Mykonos at the 5* Myconian Imperial Hotel & Thalasso Spa – a luxury hotel with superior service and member of The Leading Hotels Of The World.

The hotel is located directly on Elia beach and an easy commute into town, with regular shuttle service throughout the day. It’s just been completely renovated to an impeccable high standard.

There’s a private beach, a thalasso-therapy center with two treatments on us, outdoor and indoor pools, a sauna, jacuzzi, steam room, aromatherapy services, massages, facials, manicures and pedicures. The spa has been voted as one of the top in Greece – definitely worth a treat.

You’ll stay in spacious Premium Seaview rooms – all have been renovated this year – with gorgeous views of Elia bay and housekeeping twice a day. We check the rooms before you arrive to make sure you get the nicer ones! There are also several restaurants including a fine-dining Greek restaurant, poolside lunch service, a sushi bar, and a cocktail bar.

Local Cuisine

Mykonos is famous for its delicious food – from high-end restaurants to casual family-run tavernas with wonderful local ingredients. We’ve been to many of them over the years and have our favorite ones, and we’ll be there to plan group dinners so you can try them out.

The Myconians take special care in preparing and presenting their food – the ingredients are super fresh, and a basic salad can taste heavenly simply because of the wonderful ingredients and olive oil. And there’s always something for everyone – from veggie dishes to fresh fish and grilled meat, and all sorts of Greek specialties. We also have our favorite Greek wines and enjoy a glass with dinner.

Eat and drink what you like.

We don’t have any rules when it comes to food a drink, and we don’t have set menus. You can eat anything you like, you can have wine or a cocktail, it’s all part of the holiday. Some people who join us are vegetarian or have specific dietary needs – that’s absolutely fine, we cater to that as well and make sure you’re taken care of.

We’ll have a large buffet breakfast together after yoga, with many options – omelets, yoghurt and honey, toasts, fruit juices, fresh fruits and veggies, and so much more. Some people enjoy a light lunch or afternoon snack, but the breakfast does keep us going for a while.

We’ll go into Mykonos town for dinner some evenings or stay nearby on the beach, we’ll offer up recommendations on local tavernas as well as more fancier restaurants, depending on what the group prefers.

What yoga means to us

Yoga is at the heart of our retreats, and we offer the real deal. You’ll definitely get a good workout, but the goal of the physical practice is to challenge you enough physically so you can begin to let go and quiet the mind. That’s what yoga is all about – calming the mind. And that’s what we teach on our yoga retreats. You will feel re-energized and restored both physically and mentally.

Vinyasa Yoga and Yin Yoga

We offer two yoga classes a day on our yoga retreat in Mykonos: a morning Vinyasa flow class to get your heart going, and an evening Yin class to relax. Both classes are suitable for all levels.

What is Vinyasa? What is Yin Yoga?

Your yoga teacher and your host

Holly Warren

Holly Warren is the teacher on our yoga retreat in Mykonos and has been teaching with us there for five years, since the very first one. She’ll modify classes for all levels so you can practice at your own pace, and will also offer more challenging poses toward the end of the week, so you’ll definitely see an improvement in your own practice.

Laura will also be there to make sure everything runs smoothly and to plan day trips and group dinners. Laura knows Mykonos well and will be happy to show you around.

Getting to Mykonos

Plan to arrive at some point on the first day (Saturday), we’ll have a group dinner all together to meet each other, and 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. Once in Mykonos, your transfer to the hotel will be waiting to meet you at the airport or port.

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

We strongly suggest booking your flights in advance – airline prices increase substantially. 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 Aegean Airlines (40 minute flight).
