Enjoy a beautiful and calming holiday in the Greek island of Mykonos. The location plays a vital role in the yoga retreats. Enjoy long hours of sunshine in the summers, with the island's flora and fauna, fresh and bursting into life. It serves as the perfect setting to sharpen your yoga skills and to escape the daily grind and spring clean, to shake off the winter cobwebs and gloom.
The temporary yoga home is nestled on the north coast of Mykonos in the beautiful bay of Panormos. You will stay in a beautifully designed complex of luxury Panormos Beach Villas that will provide you with beautiful accommodation and stunning views, thus giving us the best of both natural and man-made worlds. The sheltered Panormos beach, directly below the villas, is a perfect location for occasional beach yoga, morning, and sunset meditation.
The villa's shaded terraces offer spacious areas to practice yoga as they are steeped in glorious island scenery and sea air. The luxury villas are built in the traditional Cycladic style surrounded by sweeping landscaped terraces where you can enjoy the spring sunshine, relax in sheltered nooks, or bathe in the turquoise infinity pool.
Twin, double, and single occupancy accommodations can be provided in one of the luxury sea view villas with all the luxury villas facilities at your disposal. Every villa has its own kitchen, should you wish to cater your own lunch or prepare snacks and drinks. The combination of villas used depends on the final size of the group. Bedrooms and villas will be allocated depending on whether the guests request single or shared occupancy, and in order of a booking being received.
All the rooms and villas are so delightful that even late comers to the group will not be disappointed. Fresh bed linen, towels and daily villas cleaning services are also provided.

You can do as much or as little as you please. Yoga will take place in the morning and late afternoon with 10 yoga sessions of varying lengths and content. There is never any pressure for yoga guests to take part in every yoga session and non-participating partners are always most welcome to the yoga holidays.

These classes will be followed by a healthy and nourishing Mediterranean breakfast prepared from the freshest locally sourced ingredients.
