Limnisa Greece offers space and silence to do yoga in a safe, supportive environment to find enough quiet time to be creative and mindful.

"A Tranquil Experience by the Seaside"
I throughly enjoyed my experience and would recommend it to those individuals looking for a peaceful place to collect ones thoughts, journal/write, relax and absorb the natural beauty.
It was the perfect combination of solitude and interaction with the hosts and other participants. Our hosts were friendly and helpful, yet unobtrusive. This helped create a good environment to write and reflect.
The food was thoughtfully preparing and presented, and everything from the retreat was fresh and delicious. Thank you!

"Unwind. Relax. Reconnect & Recharge."
The Limnisa retreat is the perfect place to slow down and take stock. The moment I entered the villa I started to calm down, slow down and just relax. The pace of the retreat is slow and methodical; yoga most mornings (with a focus on breathing and mindfulness), great food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The villa is on its own little cove which is perfect for refreshing dips in the sea, snorkelling or just floating in the waves. Myself and everyone I was on the retreat with felt a surge of writing inspiration here, you don't need to worry about anything. Sunset meditations, excursions to the peaks of the peninsula and the volcanoe all help to keep your mind engaged. Mariel and Phillip have really struck a nice balance between relaxation and activity. It's also a great place to meet other writers, share, listen and learn. I really recommend it for anyone in need of a break, anyone wanting to spend some time on a project, or just in need of inspiration.

"Writer retreat steeped in inspiration"
The structure was loose but effective. No talking until 1.30 so it really helped create the space to concentrate. Paradoxically it was great to have other writers to talk to. Being fed was wonderful and having such a gracious and lovingly put together space was very special. While I was a bit taken aback by the remoteness and lack of good signal, it really helped to unplug.

"Exakt auf die Zielgruppe zugeschnitten - einfach toll!"
Jeder, der schreibt, kennt das: Man macht immer wieder Schreibpläne und am Ende kommt das Schreiben doch zu kurz, da so viele andere Dinge anliegen. Nicht so beim Limnisa Retrat! Hier ist alles darauf ausgerichtet, den Teilnehmern die Zeit und Ruhe zu geben, um an ihren Schreibprojekten zu arbeiten. Wundervolle Nischen auf dem ganzen Gelände sorgen für die nötige Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit, zu hören sind nur die Wellen und die Vögel. Bei den leckeren und gesunden Mahlzeiten sorgen die anderen Teilnehmer und die Hosts für anregenden und kreativen Input. Wer möchte, kann an Yogastunden, QiGong und Nachmittags-Exkursionen, wie zum Beispiel einem Silent Walk, teilnehmen, um die Kreativität weiter anzustacheln. Ich komme bestimmt wieder - es war einfach toll!

"The perfect place to work and recharge. "
Mariel and Philip goes out of their way so you can have the best conditions possible to work on your writing. Everything is designed so you can work in a peaceful, inspiring, benevolent environment. The house and the surroundings are gorgeous, the food is wonderful and the yoga classes helps you relax and focus. This was everything I hoped it would be and so much more. Many thanks to Mariel and Philip!
