Martina Sergi is taking the Greek islands by storm! After a sold-out retreat in Kythnos, Martina will be coming back to Greece to host another Find Your Power retreat, this time on the island of Koufonisia.

Treat yourself to a week of pure island bliss and enjoy a rich schedule of daily yoga, dedicated workshops, healthy Greek food, island hopping, and more. Allow yourself to be fully taken care of in a bohemian villa, with a private chef, and gorgeous Mediterranean sea views.

Koufonisia is the ‘Mykonos of Small Cyclades’, a tiny paradise but still chic and cosmopolitan. Imagine 3km of velvet sand & glittery turquoise where you can walk everywhere on foot due to its pocket size. Be prepared to immerse yourself into a place where at the end of the week you’ll call it your island home away from home.

Let the zen juices flow! Our Koufonisia resort looks like an island painting. Its white shapes fade into the light brown landscape creating a strong contrast with the turquoise background of the water. Our retreat takes place into two neighbouring villas which together with an outdoor covered yogashala and a thai-style massage room create a unique space to unwind.

Arriving on the location the first thing you realise is the striking view of the two villas and their proximity to the most beautiful beach of the island. You instantly visualise yourself running into the hot sand and diving into the sea after a morning yoga class. There can’t be any better start for the day. Built with local stone and painted white, its exterior is a modern version of Cycladic architecture spread in different levels to secure uninterrupted sea-views for every villa.

Open spaces let the landscape flow into the interior, which features a joyful blend of traditional and contemporary elements. The palette is playful, with the dominating earth tones highlighted by vivid splashes of color. Both villas have large outdoor spaces and shaded dining areas, ideal for hosting Greek style feasts. The main villa has a large open-plan kitchen which is used by our private chef to prepare our meals and for hands-on food workshops & tastings.

The bedrooms are comfortable and cozy, with carefully selected fabrics and funky accessories, a touch of whimsy that creates a loving, homely atmosphere. The lower level of the villas is also brightly decorated and equipped with skylights to let the sunlight in.

Highlight: Walk around the whole island! The beach is just a 10min walk from the villas, while the little town can be reached in 30min. Go beach hopping and explore the south coastline of Koufonisia in 45min. Stop over to swim in natural pools and jump off the weirdest shaped rocks! This is the best place to be independent and explore as much as you want.

WIFI access: Please note that our villa is on a remote location and wifi can be unstable from time to time so moderate use is recommended. For guests who need to work during the retreat, we suggest to bring their own mobile internet.

Program

Yoga with Martina

Morning class (60/75min): The morning class will be a vinyasa flow, where we will connect movements and breath in a sweaty and challenging practice. We will move from more fun and complex transitions to complete stillness, balancing between freedom and structure, to explore new ways to create balance and harmony.

Afternoon class (90min): The afternoon classes will focus primarily on joint mobility, spatial awareness and individual range of motion exploration. This is going to be a fun class, where you are going to move, breathe and play. This class will always include couples works at the end, where we are going to connect with each other and find new ways to challenge our bodies.

Handstand workshop (120min): This two-hour workshop is open to all levels. Together we will explore the position of the handstand. We will see how to work on it and how to fall safely out of it. Inverting the body can be a joyous and fun experience. It is not necessary to be able to go upside down to participate in this workshop. In the end, you will have all the tools to be able to continue to build your inversions practice at home.

Heart openers workshop (120min): In this two-hour workshop you will be guided to flow, connecting your movements to your breath in order to deepen your practice focusing on heart-opening. These flows will challenge you to find comfort in the uncomfortable and calm your mind when it starts to wander.

Retreat location

Koufonisia is the ‘Mykonos of Small Cyclades’, a tiny paradise and the most upcoming island in Greece. You can walk everywhere on foot due to its pocket size, which gives you an instant essence of freedom and familiarity. Imagine 3klm of velvet sand, moon-shaped rocks and a small village where everyone hangs out. Be prepared to immerse yourself into a place where at the end of the week you’ll call it your island home away from home.

Our Island Yoga Resort consists of two beachfront villas overlooking one of the most dreamy beaches of the island. The location is ideal to walk everywhere you want and explore! The beach is just 10 minutes away on foot while the lil town is a beautiful 30 minutes walk. The villas blend harmoniously with the raw landscape of Koufonisia and their large outdoor spaces and patios are ideal for lazy afternoon siestas and reading. The zen atmosphere of the resort is completed with a covered outdoor yogashala and a thai-massage room, both made with natural materials.

Food

The essence of true food

Esco uses the freshest daily produce from Koufonisia and the nearby islands to prepare each meal and there’re always gluten-free alternatives. He makes his own bread and nut-based milk, as well as his famous granola, smoothies and herbal infusions. Each dinner is a big gathering around the table where we taste Esco’s specialty & his ‘innocent’ deserts for a sweet night’s sleep.
