5 Days Yoga and Awareness Training Retreat in Aegina, Greece

Oikia Karapanou Perivola 18010 Aegina Greece

Summer Yoga & Awareness Training Retreat in Greece

This summer, SATI Dynamic Yoga Retreat offers you a five days yoga retreat (August 3rd - August 7th) on the beautiful island of Aegina, in Greece. Much more than a yoga retreat to energize, regenerate and take you closer to your forgotten nature! This Awareness Training retreat will take place at the Oikia Karapanou, a beautiful mansion from the 19th century, surrounded by a huge garden close to the sea.

The residence has been restored to provide an atmosphere of peace and inspiration, an oasis on the soul's journeys. The practices and workouts (awakenings meditations, yoga practices, or workouts at sunrise and sunset time) will be held in a site full of energy that will recharge, reconnect, and inspire you.

Facilities

  • Garden

Oikia, comes from the Greek word which means both "house" and "home". It is above all, a house with a soul. It is somehow the 'essence' of a house, surrounded by an enchanted garden. Nothing in it is formal, nothing is standardised. Oikia Karapanou is not an hotel, neither is it a seminar 'factory'. It is a real house. Simple, spacious, poetic, refined. A place where guests often tell us that they feel as if they have, finally, come home.

Bedrooms

The house can host up to 20 people. There are 7 twin bed rooms (one with a double bed), one three-bed room, and one single. If there is a need for extra beds, 2 camp beds can be added. For larger groups, there is space for tents in the garden, and the possibility to rent additional rooms at a nearby guesthouse.

Bathrooms

There are 5 bathrooms in the house. One of them is ensuite to one of the bedrooms. The other 4 are shared. There are also 2 outdoor showers in the garden.

For activities

The upper floor of the house contains a bright and spacious 40 square-meter hall, surrounded by windows facing in all directions, which leads out onto two big terraces facing east and west. If a larger space is needed, there is a flat outdoor area of 300 square meters in front of the house, shady and totally private. There is also the old 13 meterwide threshing floor, with its beautiful views of the sea and islands.

For free time

The living-room (with great-grandmother's piano!); various balconies and terraces; and, of course the spacious and magical garden. The nearest beach is very close, around 300 meters away on foot.

Retreat location

Our venue, Oikia Karapanou, is only an hour by boat from Athens. Oikia Karapanou is a beautiful mansion from the 19th century, surrounded by a huge garden close to the sea and it is situated in Perivola, 18010 Aegina, Greece

The island of Aegina is truly charming, its wide horizons are suffused with Attic light, where sunshine-filled days are passed in the sea, on the beaches, and enjoying the atmosphere of the lively tavernas, cafés, and nightlife.

The port, just four kilometers from the Oikia, is fronted by beautiful neoclassical houses whose balconies overlook the harbor and its vibrant social life. Zorba the Greek was written here by the famous author Kazantzakis who chose Aegina as his home from 1931 to 1946 – contributing to the aura of its intellectual, artistic and cultural life. He wrote, in 1933: "Divine are the days here…".

As well as the attraction of the beaches, there are many beautiful walks and interesting places to visit during our times off practice, such as:

  • The temple of Aphaia built at the time of the Parthenon, and some would say, its rival, with its own attractive museum.
  • The charming museum at the ancient site of Colonna.
  • The Greek Orthodox monastery of "Chrissoleontissa" perched high in the center of the island.
  • The valley at the foot of Aegina's highest mountain topped with the remains of a sanctuary to Hellanios Zeus and a tiny chapel - with 1,000-year-old olive trees.
  • Agios Nektarios church, the second largest church in the Balkans.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Driving directions once you get to Aegina Port

  • If you are driving, turn right at the harbour exit, pass in front of all the shops and cafes and continue straight ahead, with the sea on your right hand, for about 3 km.
  • You will see a small chapel by the sea. Across the chapel is a main road,​ at a right angle to the one you are on.
  • Turn left into this road and drive on for about 500 meters, pass in front of a small garage on your right and 50 meters further up, just before an old gate opening on a pine tree wood, turn left into a tiny road.
  • Drive to the end of this road and pass in between two stone pillars: you have arrived.
  • Beware of the cats and dogs, they are friendly but easy to run over!
