6 Days Spanda Yoga Retreat in Paros, Cyclades, Greece

Okreblue Eco Yoga Retreat, Santa Maria, Paros, Cyclades, Greece

Greece Yoga Retreat

Life is experienced as a balance between opposite forces; the Yin-like Shakti and the Yang-like Shiva, the divine feminine and the divine masculine, the moon and the sun, the expansion and contraction; the Spanda. In this retreat journey, you will dive into the exploration of these forces. Spanda can be described as the creative pulse of life, the expansion and contraction of the inner and the outer space. You will move into the practice according to this Spanda, this pulsation, flowing through poses and allowing organic movement and breath to become the guiding force of the yoga practice. Whether you are new to yoga or a more experienced practitioner, you will get the opportunity to deepen your understanding and practice so that will you can feel more in-tune with your own personal rhythm.

In the evenings, you will dive into a Yin practice to nourish the meridians and distress, cultivating restful alertness, increasing flexibility and mobility. The perfect combination.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Paros National Airport (PAS).

Flights available from Athens International Airport, or you can take a ferry from the port of Piraeus. Aegean Air is the company that flies from Athens to Paros so far. Make sure you book your tickets well in advance because it’s difficult to find availability during the summer months.

Another option is a charter flight to Mykonos island, and then a 45-minute boat ride to Paros.

Arrival by boat

Rafina port is closer to the airport and you can get there either by taxi or bus. By bus, it will take you about 45 minutes and it costs 3 EUR. By taxi, it will take you less time but more money.

Pireaus port is further from the airport than Rafina, and you can get there by bus, metro, or taxi. The metro and bus are both very convenient because they will leave you just a few meters from where you get the boat to Paros. Both the bus and the metro take about one hour (the bus a little longer maybe depends on the traffic) to get to Pireaus and cost 10 EUR.

The two companies that sail to Paros is Blue Star Ferries and Hellenic Seaways. BlueStar ferries takes about 4.5 hours and runs twice a day with tickets starting at 33 EUR, while Hellenic Seaways takes about 2 hours 45 minutes with tickets starting at 45-50 EUR.

Cancellation Policy

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 40% of the total price.
  • The deposit is non-refundable, if the booking is cancelled.
  • The rest of the payment should be paid 60 days before arrival.
