Ellas Retreat Palairos has 16 dorm beds and three double rooms and offer a wide range of healthy food.

All the rooms are homely and tastefully decorated and include air-conditioning, and a small refrigerator and hot plate for an emergency lunch or tea. You may relax on the balcony or in the garden during any time of the day and feel completely at home.


The main focus of this retreat is Japa meditation three times a day around a yantra. To support the process of the retreat there will be Hatha Yoga sessions. You are free to decide how much you like to follow and you can still be engaged in daily activities.

During the retreat, you will sit three times a day and perform Japa yoga around a living yantra. Some days, there will also be Japa yoga combined with yagnas (fire ceremonies).

Tantric Sadhana

The secret behind the practice of Tantra is the subtle connection between awareness and energy. In the Tantric Sadhana, the subtle energy Kundalini Shakti or the energy of awakening is gradually activated and is leading to expansion and awakening of the individual consciousness. Tantra is also worship to the goddess who gives life to all. A devotional approach can benefit the practice.

Japa yoga is one of the most widely spread forms of yoga in India and Tibet. Most traditions of India are using some forms of Japa yoga, which consists of repeating different mantras. This induces a specific state of meditation which will lead to purification and more awareness.

Yantra is a tantric diagram that is used to increase the effect of the meditation. The yantra will be built on the first day of the retreat and will be erased on the last.


For the practice to enter deep inside, in parallel with the yantra, there will also be yagnas. This meditation will be performed with food offerings as the sacrifice to the fire. It is a widespread practice in India today and done since ancient times. -Hatha yoga %If you wish you can participate in Hatha yoga, it frees the body from tension and helps to balance the energies.


If you wish you can help with small tasks, the course can run smoothly. You can do some works such as cleaning the rooms or cutting vegetables. Seva belongs to Karma yoga.
