Our abode

 

Our place of retreat on the island is a unique 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 not wanting to leave — ever.

 

The island

Aigina (Aegina) is a smaller 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 crave of summer, the sea, nature and island vibe.

Add to it plant-based food cooked on the spot by the fantastic Greek-Mexican-sister duo and obviously the HIGH ON YOGA-style dynamic vinyasa practice — and you got the retreat of your dreams.

Our food is prepared daily with love and care by two Greek-Mexican sister chefs who fuse the bounty of local produce with modern plant-based approach. We serve in the garden under huge pine trees filled with summer cicadas. 

 

There will be time to intensify your yoga practice as well as to enjoy some free time on a Greek island far from tourists 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 excursions, including one bigger to the nearby tropical islet with its paradise-like turquoise waters. The ancient temple of goddess Afaia is also on our list.

Let the journey begin!
