During this retreat, you will be staying at the Om Yoga Paros' property at Golden Beach, Paros Island. This recently built traditional villa was made by typical Greek techniques and has Eco-friendly features. It is totally made out of stones with walls of half a meter wide, creating a comfortable environment for temperatures all year round.

The villa consists of eleven rooms, thus the place is never crowded. The environment is surrounded by vineyards, olive and bamboo trees, and the sea. The only road coming to the back of the villa is private, making the ambiance peaceful and quiet.

All the rooms are equipped with a full bathroom, bed sheets, towels, air-conditioner, Wi-Fi and a private terrace with sea view. From your terrace, the beach is just in front of you, about 30 steps before you reach the water. This is almost unique on the island since normally you will need to cross roads or walk quite a while before you can reach a sandy beach.

Om Yoga Paros Greece Yoga Retreat Program

At this retreat, you will experience Hatha yoga and Yin yoga. Hatha yoga, originating from India, helps you purify your mind and your body by practicing pranayama (breathing exercises) and asanas (postures). You will learn some of its philosophy and be able to balance yourself and bring harmony within you.

Yin yoga, on the other hand, is a flow of postures practiced very slowly that will help you relax and connect with your body. Both practices will allow you to feel self-awareness and embrace your spirituality. All levels of practice are welcomed as the teacher will adapt the classes according to your needs.

On your morning and afternoon free time, you are welcomed to rest, explore the surroundings, enjoy the beach and its facilities or try some of the activities the island has to offer.

At Om Yoga Paros, you are offered two daily yoga classes. You are also welcome to try different workshops on the afternoon about chakra yoga-tuning and mindfulness meditation which are already included in your package.
