If you've been reading along for a while, you may remember our yoga retreat in Ibiza in April. Well, it was such a success that my friend and retreat coordinator Sophie and I have teamed up to put together another amazing retreat. This yoga retreat will be on the beautiful Greek island of Sifnos. We'll spend a night in Athens (included in price!) on October 4th, and then head to Sifnos for the 5th - 11th. On the 11th, we will come back to Athens for another stay at the hotel (included!) and we'll all depart on the 12th. So the retreat is actually October 4th - 12th, but we are on Sifnos from the 5th-11th.
About Sophie & Candace
Sophie is incredible, and to be honest, I wouldn't be doing this if she were not involved. Her attention to detail is impeccable, and she's one of those people who just makes things happen. She comes from a place of 'yes' and has a positive attitude about everything. Whatever you might need, you just ask her and voila! She's got an answer. She is the planner extraordinaire and the person to go to for anything you may need from planning your afternoons to help booking a rental car, to suggestions for the best cafe in Sifnos.
About me - Yoga is a great tool for self-inquiry and as an instructor, I encourage students to turn inward during their practice to experience a meditation in motion and be an observer of their bodies and minds. That being said, I like to create classes with playful sequencing, and approach the class with a sense of honesty, and humor. I try to cater to the physical needs of the students while making sure to deliver a practice that intends to unify the mind, body, and soul. You can get a feel for my teaching style on my youtube channel. I'll be at the retreat to teach the yoga and meditation sessions, to help you in your practice, and to answer any questions you have about yoga.
Yoga Retreat Venue
We'll stay at a fabulous boutique hotel, where all rooms will be reserved exclusively for our group. The hotel boasts incredible views of the Aegean sea and features the gorgeous whitewashed buildings typical of Greece.
Menu at the Yoga Retreat in Greece
This area is where our breakfasts and yoga sessions will take place. We'll have two classes per day - a more active, athletic practice in the morning, and a more gentle practice in the evening. We'll also hold meditation classes here.
We will serve breakfasts and dinners at the retreat, and the food will be vegetarian and organic. Food will be locally sourced, and made from the finest ingredients. There is a possibility to design a gluten free menu, if you wish. Just let us know!
