Program

During this retreat, LilaYogaRetreats will focus on giving you the full experience and therefore the full benefits of a deeply relaxed emotional, mental, energetic and physical body via specially designed activities and programs which match your comfort level and personal needs:

Daily morning Meditation sessions

Learn to quiet the chatter of the "monkey mind" which is always focused on need, fear or what is wrong in the world, and listen to the silent sound of the breath emanating from the heart. Turn within and make a wonderful discovery of what is in a very heart of yourself, of your being... Inner silence and quietude.. Still, serene, unchanging..

Daily morning Kundalini Yoga classes

The daily morning Kundalini Yoga classes will include Asanas, Kriyas and Pranayamas, and take place in our amazing yoga shala with the spectacular panoramic sea view. Learn to connect and listen to the physical body and feel the energy flow within. This energy manifests itself in a mood of tranquility and joy, clarity of awareness. All you have to do is to relax and allow it to flow freely

Fire Ceremony

Take some time to be with fire in a sacred way. Let it enchant you, purify you, and empower you as it has done for countless others throughout the centuries. The ritual is designed to help us clear any obstacles so that we may attain a more perfect harmony with ourselves and the spiritual realm.

Tea Ceremony

The tea ceremony represents purity, tranquility, respect and harmony.

Tea had long been valued by Ch'an monks in China to keep them awake during meditation. According to legend, when Bodhidharma, the founder of Ch'an (Zen), struggled to stay awake during meditation, he ripped his eyelids off, and tea plants sprang from the discarded eyelids.

Chado, which "The Way of Tea", isn't a ceremony involving tea. It is just tea; just this moment, fully experienced and appreciated. Through meticulous attention to every detail of preparing and drinking tea, the participants enter into a shared, intimate experience of tea.

Kundalini Dynamic Meditation

Being fully immersed in the shaking and dancing of the first two stages helps to “melt” the rock-like being, wherever the energy flow has been repressed and blocked. Then that energy can flow, dance and be transformed into bliss and joy. The last two stages enable all this energy to flow vertically, to move upwards into silence. It is a highly effective way of unwinding and letting go at the end of the day.

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful meditation technique, which help to release stress and tension and offers ultimate relaxation.

Cacao Ceremony

The word ‘cacao’ originally comes from the Mayan words Ka’kau and Chokola’j - which means to drink chocolate together. Cacao ceremonies are a centuries-old ritual seen as the ultimate heart-opener and a powerful tool to dive deeper into your inner soul. A warm sensation in your chest. You feel softer, more present and loving.

  • 07:30 - 08:30 Morning meditation
  • 08:30 - 09:30 Light breakfast

Included excursions

All the excursions serve the main concept of the retreat - to relax, slow down, become more introspective and meditative.

Hot Thermal Springs in Edipsos

Edipsos is famous for its thermal springs that heal and rejuvenate ever since Antiquity. Hippocrates and Aristotle visited the springs and wrote about its benefits and the rare microclimate they create. The sea is always warm and the sun shines 300 days a year, tempting visitors for a dive even in winter!

According to mythology, the precious water flowed for the very first time when Hephaestus beat the land with his hammer. It was a favor to goddess Athena, who believed that the thermal springs would keep Hercules healthy and powerful! The springs of Aidipsos are more than 80. The composition of the waters in combination with their high temperature is particularly beneficial for the human body. The temperature of the waters ranges from 28 degrees Celsius to 86 degrees Celsius. The waters are rich in magnesium, calcium, and iron while their properties are extremely healing. Nature has also chipped in for a rare combined experience where the warm water gushes from the sea bed, a rare phenomenon that is difficult to find anywhere else in the world. Relaxing and rejuvenating bathing in hot waters of thermal springs combined with swimming in the winter sea with beneficial effects of the contrast temperatures gives an amazing revitalizing effect to the body and general well-being.

Drymonas waterfalls

Drimonas is a mountainous village in Northern Evia at an altitude of 580 meters. Its name is probably derived from the dense oak, oak, and pine forests surrounding it, or from the harsh cold weather prevailing in the area during the winter. The waterfalls of Drymonas make up a place of inexhaustible natural beauty located at an altitude of 620 meters. The path between the greenery is truly wonderful! You will enjoy a relaxing walk in splendid scenery of rich vegetation listening to the calming sound of running water and birds singing in the trees...

Monastery of Saint David

This Monastery, standing at the foot of the mountains of Kavalaris and looking out onto the village of Drimona is a significant monument in the area of North Evia, but also for the whole of the island of Evia and Greece. It was built on a beautiful spot, with natural beauty of trees and water springs. The monastery was founded in 1550 and has very rare hagiography as well, as historical relics there are exhibited in the monastery’s museum. Immerse in the deeply peaceful and healing energy of the place!

An Ancient Olive Tree

The "Mavroelia" (Black Olive Tree), which has been proven to be thousands of years old by its natural dimensions, is the rear monument of nature.

"Be like a tree. Stay grounded. Connect with your roots. Turn over a new leaf. Bend before you break. Enjoy your unique natural beauty. Keep growing." /Joanne Raptis/
