Spoil yourself on a yoga retreat in Mykonos.

 

Yoga Retreat in Mykonos | 2020 & 2021

2020 dates:  5–12 Sept | 12–19 Sept
2021 dates:  29 May–5 June | 5–12 June | 4–11 Sept | 11–18 Sept

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, and 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’ve been coming back every summer for over 20 years and have been hosting yoga retreats there for 8 years. We know it well and we’ll be there to show you the nicest corners!

What to expect

Our yoga teachers 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 – an active Vinyasa flow class in the morning and an afternoon Yin yoga class. All yoga levels are welcome, even beginners.

Our yogis often write about their experience with us – here’s a lovely blog post by Nicole who joined us on our Mykonos yoga retreat in May 2018.

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 a member of The Leading Hotels Of The World.

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

There’s a private beach, a thalasso-therapy center with a treatment 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.

We’ll stay in spacious Premium Seaview rooms – all have been renovated, with housekeeping twice a day, and balconies with gorgeous sea views of Elia bay. We check the rooms before you arrive to make sure you get nice ones! There are also several restaurants including a fine-dining Greek restaurant, poolside lunch service, a sushi restaurant, 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 the hotel. We’ll be there to plan a group dinner each evening and offer up recommendations on local tavernas as well as more fancier restaurants, depending on what the group prefers.

The buffet breakfast / brunch is included in the price. We purposefully didn’t include snacks and dinners so everyone can decide what they like to eat and spend accordingly, rather than have pre-set dinners at the hotel which would be more expensive. You only pay for what you eat and drink, there are many nice restaurants and they’re very reasonably priced.

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 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 extra energy, 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!

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 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 afternoon Yin yoga class. Both classes are suitable for all levels.

What is Vinyasa? What is Yin Yoga?

Your yoga teachers and host

Daniela Olds, Sarah Scott, and Liz Joubert are the teachers on our yoga retreats in Mykonos. They will teach a dynamic Vinyasa flow class in the mornings, and a slower Yin yoga class in the afternoons.

They will 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.

Liz Joubert will teach on the yoga retreat from the 5-12 September and from the 12-19 September 2020.

Check back here to find out who is teaching in 2021 – we’ll be updating that shortly.

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

It was such a special experience to practice yoga on our terrace by the sea. Being back in the city with the noise of cars, telephone calls, client requests, I can breathe and remember this beauty and peaceful view.

Simone, Berlin

What people are saying

What a wonderful week! As a yoga newbie I thoroughly enjoyed Lizi’s classes, the setting was stunning and the group was such good company. The day trip was so worth it, and having the benefit of your knowledge Laura and your organisation was priceless. The restaurants every night were amazing and the food was stunning. I loved the setup with yoga in the mornings and afternoons with time to chill during the day – I wouldn’t change anything. Thank you again.

A great holiday – yoga, hotel, setting were all excellent, but most important in making this special were Laura and Holly. Laura planned everything with a personal touch and made everyone feel thoroughly relaxed.

Bernard, Amsterdam

What people are saying

It was wonderful to get to spend last week with all of you. Great company, gorgeous weather, fab yoga…what a great way to remind myself of how brilliant holidays are. I’ve really been missing out!

Lisa, London

What people are saying

Laura, the holiday was a wonderful experience for me. I was hesitant about coming alone, and I’m so happy that I did. I came home feeling completely energised and recharged from the yoga, both physically and personally. I thought it was brilliantly organised, and for me it was perfectly calibrated between being sufficiently structured and also giving me enough time away from the group. Sarah, thank you so much for your brilliant teaching during the holiday, your wit and warmth made me look forward to each lesson every day. There is a lot that I have carried with me from your teaching and guidance. I would definitely like to come again, and have been recommending it to all my friends.

Georgina, London

What people are saying

Yoga Escapes designs exceptional holiday experiences centred around yoga. Laura, the multi lingual founder, researches every last detail from the best corner of each 5 star hotel to practice each day to amazing eateries each evening and anything in between. Essentially you are able to completely switch off on arrival and entrust your well being is her top priority so you can just lean in….. The absence of stressful decision making is removed and replaced with carefully considered, nuanced options for you to point at and say yes please or no thank you. It is rare to find such a warm, discreet professional at the top of her game. Bravo and thank you.

Rebecca, London

Laura you have created an experience where bonds can be formed among yogis from around the world in a peaceful, friendly, and non-judgemental environment. Your honestly and passion for your business as well as your professionalism is outstanding. But you can let your guard down, too. People come back again and again for a reason, and I know you are a large part of that. 

Patty, Washington, DC

Getting to Mykonos

Plan to arrive at some point on Saturday, we’ll have a group dinner that evening for those who can make it to meet each other, and yoga classes will start the next morning. The last yoga class will be on Friday evening and people will leave throughout the day on Saturday, you can stay as long as you like and enjoy a full last day in Mykonos!

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.

Mykonos can be reached either by airplane or boat. Flights or boats to Mykonos are not included in the price, the transfer from the airport or the port to the hotel (and back) is included in the price.

By Air:

Mykonos has an international airport. If direct flights are not available, an alternative is to fly to Athens and then take an internal flight to Mykonos on Aegean Airlines or Vueling Airlines (a quick 30 minute flight). We strongly suggest booking your flights in advance – airline prices increase substantially closer to the dates.

By Boat:

There are daily fast catamaran boats from the port of Rafina (closest to Athens airport). The trip takes approximately two 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.
