Integral Yoga Retreat Greece

Take the opportunity to get recharged with the power of the Messinian Energy.

A retreat based on Integral Yoga which includes 3 hours of yoga practices daily, in a hidden luxury resort hotel with a stunning sea view, in the middle of an olive yard.

The practices aim to introduce and bring you deeper into the ancient techniques of Yoga. A spiritual journey for awareness and the equilibrium that will accompany you during this yoga vacation and beyond!

Led by Nireas - a very experienced yoga teacher - you will practice for 90 minutes twice per day dynamic and static postures (Asanas) to strengthen body and mind, breathing exercises (Pranayama) to channelize the energy and meditation techniques (Pratyahara) to guide you to the path of awareness.

The resort is located 200 metres from the sea, set within an extensive olive grove and approximately 1.5 kilometers from the town centre of the historic city of Kyparissia (Peloponnese).

You will be spoiled by the calm environment and with every breath you take, you will absorb the atmosphere of the surrounding nature and sea.
