I cannot say enough wonderful things about this experience. Marilou was incredibly helpful with planning the logistics and ensuring I was in comfortable accommodations. Both, Marilou and Roza, were super down to earth and really cared about making this experience enjoyable for the whole group. I will definitely be partaking in another retreat hosted by Marilou.

"Anafi+Yoga, a perfect match"
I liked everything about my yoga retreat in Anafi, the location close to Roukounas beach, the taverna that serves excellent greek food, the accommodation very comfortable, but above all the people there, I felt like in a family, with the 2 teachers, Marilou and Carolina, very professional and passionate, and with the other participants.
Though the atmosphere was cozy and informal, during the yoga classes the teachers were very careful about each people physical needs and issues, I learnt so much about asanas and meditation techniques from them, I feel very grateful.
Anafi is the perfect location for a yoga retreat because is an island still far from the hustle and bustle of other more famous and touristic greek islands.
Is a very quite place but so rich of beautiful beaches and landscapes, so authentically greek!
I strongly recommend this retreat!

"Feels Like Home "
The island of Anafi is such an amazing place, beautiful views, and it’s small enough to walk between the beaches and village quite easily. The Greek people of the island and camping on the beach are so friendly and welcoming it makes you feel like you are at home with all of your friends you have known for years. The 2 instructors I had were very different in their approach and, being a beginner, I thought this offered some interesting perspective into the practice of yoga. I chose the free camping option and didn’t come prepared with a tent or sleeping bag, Marilou kindly arranged to have these things for me when I arrived. I had no idea what I was getting myself into and I can’t think of a more perfect way for things to have gone.

"Authentic Greek experience with peace & quiet!"
Anafi was a wonderful island where you felt the true Greek culture of the village. The ideal location for any yogi to escape and recharge. The staff was fantastic and flexible with planning the days to accommodate the mood of the class. I loved the combination of the yoga classes, djambe, African dancing and hiking. You had plenty of downtime to explore on your own or sink you feet in the sand. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an adventure with great instructors!

"A unique experience any yogi should try at least once!"
Marilou organised a truly unique retreat experience. The location was perfectly selected. The food was delicious and the accommodation was a perfect fit to a true yogi. We did our yoga classes while the sun was rising and setting. Our mind and body was truly "detoxed" and all of us left the island feeling tremendously better than when we arrived. Would definitely recommend joining Marilou's retreats - really once in a lifetime experience!
