7-day
Greek Island Refuge Retreat
with Mateusz & Anita
2-8 August 2021
Aegina Island, Greece 

It's been a difficult year and we all need time off, time to nourish ourselves and to dwell into our practice to give our mind some proper rest.

 

Once again we invite you to spend a week in the middle of the summer in a secluded island paradise with yoga, plant-based food and in a unique house.

Our refuge

 

Our place of retreat on the island is a unique huge 19th century villa located outside of the main port town, hidden from the tourist life and surrounded by an enormous garden. Just a stone’s throw from the beach, the secluded house offers an absolute peace and magical atmosphere, perfect for deep thoughts and yoga practice. The house's two floors and multiple terraces with sea view is the right place to sooth the ever-busy mind. The incredible ambient and atmosphere of the villa and its "secret" garden, as we call it, will make you want to stay there - believe us - forever. 

 

The island

Aegina is a small island on the Saronic Gulf of the Aegean Sea. Rather unknown amongst international tourists, it’s only a 40-minute trip away from the capital city of Athens. The island's central town is a small picturesque harbour, however, our destination is the serene and more pristine southern part of the island. Rich history and local vibe makes Aegina a hidden gem on the Aegean Sea.

During the retreat

 

This retreat is something we all dream of: summer, sea, beaches, nature and beautiful surroundings, excellent fresh plant-based food cooked by two Greek-Mexican sisters and obviously the High On Yoga-style intensive vinyasa practice.

 

There will be time to intensify your yoga practice as well as to enjoy some free time on a Greek island far from tourist and off beaten paths.

 

We will practice twice a day, a morning session to wake up and an evening class to sweat and focus.

 

During the retreat will go on an excursion to the nearby tropical islet with its beach paradise and turquoise waters.

For more about our the COViD-19 safety issues scroll down.

COVID-19 pandemic regulations:

In midst of the ongoing pandemic we are striving to create a safe environment at our upcoming retreat.

 

Aegina Island has been a relatively CoViD-19-free zone like most of the Greek Islands. Still, all the common spaces will be well-ventilated, disinfected and cleaned. Please note though that the retreat is happening in the middle of the Greek summer and warm temperatures are guaranteed during the day and at night, therefore most of our activities including dinning, will happen outdoors (check above for pictures of our dinning area).

 

Moreover, a recent negative test or vaccination confirmation will be most likely required to join us.

 

Please note, however, that at the moment, due to the rapidly developing situation (a progressing vaccine rollout in Europe, yet the still-running 3rd wave in Germany), both in Germany and in Greece, we are not able to tell you exactly what measures we will need to take on the retreat in August.

The Greek government will be opening its borders for tourists in May, however, no official regulations from the Greek side have been decided upon as of now.

We will keep you updated as soon as state regulations are announced.
