Based on Leros Island in Greece, this retreat is a mystique journey to Tantric transformative practices. This ShivaShakti journey, it’s a journey about ‘’you’’. Our nature is energy in matter. In this Retreat you are invited to dive in a process of surrendering into your inner power, kundalini, in order to rise beyond the limited self. The ancient Wisdom of Tantra, Tao and Kundalini Yoga, offers many ways to work on our awakening for growth, for opening, for expansion, and that’s the purpose of this retreat. You will explore and experience some of the endless ways to approach and deal with Shiva male energy, and Shakti female energy, observing and studding their relationship, which is mirroring our relationships, with ourselves, with others, with Life!
Featuring 5 days of Tantric Shiva/Shakti workshop, daily Yoga, Mindfulness of breathing, pranayama, Satsangs, as well as optional activities such as boat excursions, other workshops, and holistic treatments, this retreat is designed to open up your heart, heal your mind and listen to your body from the inside out.

For 7 years Alexandra has devoted her life to two things: yoga and plants as medicine. It is through these two channels, Alexandra believes, one can heal the mind, body and soul. She believes the internal journey is an important path in which one can obtain stability and clarity in ones personal direction in life. In order to do that, we must remove ourselves from the distractions of the mind and body and dig deep. Using techniques like meditation, asana and pranayama to get there. Her humble, opened minded approach to teaching is something students of all levels can appreciate.
Katerina is leading the Shiva/Shakti workshop. She is working with people for the last twelve years. All started from a personal ‘’call-need’’, to support, nurture and heal, the body, while at the same time her soul’s call for answers was not less intense. At some moment of her life, she realized that her path was to bring In Union spirit and mater. Katerina doesn't belong to any spiritual teaching, she is experiencing and exploring those which her inner wisdom recognize as relevant, according to what is true and authentic to her heart, wishing to share and spread by being in service.
This retreat will take place in Leros island, a truly magical place. It is a miniature fairy island, lost in the expanse of the Aegean Sea, off the tourist flows, one of the last small paradises, where you can experience the traditional way of life of its inhabitants and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere of peace that reigns here.
This place has a very special magnetic aura. The island of Leros forms the so-called energy triangle along with the neighboring islands of Lipsì and Pátmos. The last one is best known for the fact that living there John the theologian received his revelation and wrote the Apocalypse.
The amazing surroundings, with the infinite blue sky and blue sea, low hills, overgrown with oregano and cumin, orange, and olive trees in green valleys, make look the island as a paradise.
The fresh air, deep with the aroma of eucalyptus and rosemary makes the greek way of life leisurely, unhurried, relaxed, and creating an amazing contrast with the explosive temperament of the greeks themselves.
