Kaladi Rock is an exclusive eco-resort with stunning sunset and sea views. Situated directly on the award-winning blue flag beach of Kaladi, on the coastal region of ancient Skandia where the beautiful ancient goddess Aphrodite was worshipped in the sixth century B.C.

Stone walls combined with total white houses equipped with minimalistic furniture generate a very attractive atmosphere. All rooms have private entrances, bathrooms, and balconies or patios overlooking the serene view of Kaladi Beach, which will nourish your senses with the soothing sounds of the sea.

Bathe in the crystal clear waters of Kythera, or relax by the infinity swimming pool, dotted with sun-beds and umbrellas where you can enjoy fresh beverages and snacks. Flotation at the borderline is a breathtaking experience!

Wonderfully shaded pergolas with bougainvilleas create the perfect sanctuary for you to rest and renew while the sea waves sound in the background brings the final touch at the idyllic scenery.

Program

Yoga and Breathwork

The Hatha Vinyasa yoga practice, in conjunction with the principles of Biomatic Anatomy, is linking movement with breath and awakens your body/spirit awareness. You will learn how to develop a daily practice of graceful movement sequences, details of physical and esoteric physiology and therapeutic relaxation techniques.

Dance and Voice

Spirit contact dance will ground you, shaking and pulsing will release tension, increase blood circulation and connect you with the cosmic energy of the Earth. Gradually your breath will expand into sound and your voice will be liberated. Entering a state of profound soul connection, establishing a deep level of freedom - you will reach a euphoric state of being.

Water spirit contact dance is an aquatic bodywork that will enable you to embody the art of true belonging and trust oneness in the fluidity of the sea. Through gentle stretches and fluid movements, your body will enter deep states of relaxation and awareness, which then can release physical, mental, and emotional tension, and open the doorways for a personal, transformative experience. Joy, release, freedom, and renewed energy are only some of the gifts received through this rebirthing experience.

Sharing Circle, Rituals, and Meditation

Sharing circle is a sacred inclusive space that will support you to feel free to express your deepest longings, release old patterns and fears, shift perspective and activate new decisions, while simple yet profound rituals will teach you how to fully enjoy your experience and be grateful to yourself, your community and the earth. Guided meditations will lead you into the deepest self-insights and most powerful realizations.

Retreat location

The island of Kythera is captivating, magical, enigmatic, and mysterious, inspirational for filmmakers, artists, and songwriters. Unspoiled white sands, crystal blue waters, emerald lagoons, raw beauty which can be found in its countless trails, pure and untouched beaches hidden in craggy rocks, rugged gorges, secret waterfalls, medieval castles, scenic villages, and a fertile soil famous for its culinary products.

Greek mythology connects this beautiful island with Aphrodite, the ancient Greek Goddess of beauty who, according to legends, emerged from the foam of the Kytherian sea.

An authentic cultural identity preserved by friendly and generous local people, Kythera is a dreamland that can reveal the secrets of the soul.
