Located in south-eastern Europe, it lies at the meeting point of three continents - Europe, Asia and Africa. Crete, Rhodes, Corfu, the Dodecanese and the Cyclades are some of the famous and popular islands. But also many less known small islands can host a Mediterranean paradise retreat or yoga training.
80% of the country features mountains or hills, but furthermore, it has 16,000 kilometers of coastline of which 7,500 are found around the islands of the Greek archipelago. The magic landscape features sheltered bays and coves, sandy beaches with sand-dunes, pebble beaches, coastal caves with steep rocks and dark colored sand typical of volcanic soil. Many of them provide not only dreamy swimming, but also scuba diving, snorkeling, water skiing, sailing and windsurfing.
Mythology can be traced in the numerous Greek art forms like the architecture, sculpture, pottery, weaving, music, jewelry and painting. Folk culture for the Greek people, rich in music, dances, poetry and theater, is part of their everyday life. The fingerprints of Greek history can be seen in the numerous archeological sites as well as the museums and collections available in the country.
A retreat program can start with one or two days in Athens, the capital where many of the main architectonic and culture icons remain. From here, an excellent net of ferries will take your group to the selected blissful island. This trip is part of the journey and arriving during sunrise to your island is a very unique experience. Some of the ferries even allow to practice yoga on their big decks. Nothing compares to the feeling of the Mediterranean breeze while practicing asanas.
