Program

Mantras & Mixtape's mission is to educate and inspire by introducing simple, achievable techniques and practical tools that will allow you to integrate the teachings in a way that is applicable to everyday life.

They create holistic wellness experiences in idyllic remote destinations, incorporating daily mindful practices, physical activities, and guided group excursions, while offering the opportunity for solitude and self-reflection.

Each trip is carefully curated and crafted with love and care, aiming on promoting personal growth and well-being. Our goal is to help you expand your comfort zone, enhance your physical and spiritual practice, restore balance in body and mind.

On this retreat, you will nourish your body with simple, yet delicious vegetarian dishes made with seasonal local produce. Mantras & Mixtapes like to keep the retreats intimate, with an average group size about 10, offering lots of personal attention.

They believe in sustainable travel. To help avoid over-tourism, they plan their wellness retreats only during off-peak times. They welcome all genders, races, and ethnicities.

Morning practice

Your days will start with contemplative silence. This is a great time to get grounded, go inward, and recharge your mind. You will gather for our morning movement practice - an alignment-based yoga flow or a dynamic Mat Pilates class. You will connect with your bodies and minds through mindful movement. Expect an accessible but challenging practice, where emphasis is placed on proper alignment and form. A moderately paced class that will help you improve your flexibility, release any tension, still and relax the mind. Youur morning movement sessions will be followed by a mindfulness meditation practice and a short dharma talk. By working with your breath you will learn how to quiet the mind and tune into the present moment. Through the practice of mindfulness meditation and the wisdom of Buddha's ancient teachings, you will learn how to work with strong emotions and invite stillness and peace in body and mind.

Evening practice

As the evening winds down, yoga and meditation will be how we unwind and get deeper into the connective tissue releasing the tension of the day. We will begin with a Restorative / Yin session, an excellent way to decompress and set the tone for a peaceful evening. Mantras & Mixtapes will conclude the evening movement practice with meditation and journaling. They will access your deeper thoughts and fears, release negative thought patterns and practice letting go of what we might have been holding onto in order to create space for new experiences.

Retreat location

Skiathos is an unspoiled and picturesque island of the Aegean, in the Sporades group. There are over 60 beaches with crystal clear waters along the coast, some with golden sand and unique pine forests such as Mandraki beach, while others with white rocks (Lalaria beach) and pebbles (Kastro). The most famous is Koukounaries, which has been declared the third most beautiful beach in the Mediterranean.

The traveler can choose from a wide range of clean beaches, from the secluded private ones to the cosmopolitan ones with beach bars and water sport activities (diving and snorkeling, water ski, wakeboard and many more). It is highly known for being a green island with pine tree forests and olive groves, bustling nightlife that attracts thousands of young visitors every year and amazing local as well as international cuisine.

Skiathos is the nearest island to the mainland, with the international airport, only 41 miles away from Volos, the capital of the Magnesia region. It is only 2.5 hours away on the ferry from the port of Volos. It is also accessible from Agios Konstantinos port and Mantoudi port in Evia as well.

Visitors can also enjoy activities such as biking, hiking, trailing or following signposted walking routes which pass through some of the most beautiful parts of the island with breathtaking sea views of the Aegean. They can also visit the historical monasteries, or do daily trips to the neighboring small islands.
