During the retreat, you will be staying at Grand Hotel Minareto, a luxury seaside five-star resort located right in front of the island of Ortigia, on a promontory in the midst of the crystal-clear waters of the Plemmirio Nature Reserve. The resort’s 93 rooms and four suites are in reserved and exclusive cottages scattered around the luxuriant Mediterranean grounds, a splendid setting dominated by the sea and the sky.

For the retreat, you can choose to be accommodated in either superior sea view rooms or classic rooms. Both rooms provide you with all comforts and luxury accessories: Persian carpets, satin sheets, furnished private terraces, individually controlled air conditioning with air recycling, a computer in the room with complimentary access, a mini bar, in-room safe, and 32-inch LCD television. The difference would be that classic rooms are slightly smaller than the superior rooms and have a view of the garden or pool.

In this retreat, you will practice two yoga classes a day on the terrace with great views. Beginners and advanced practitioners are welcome in this retreat. The teacher, Sarah Scott, will modify the classes so that everyone can practice at their own pace.

Morning classes will feature Vinyasa flow that will get your heart going. In the evening, the class will be more restorative, soothing, and relaxing. The poses will be adjusted depending on the group. You are encouraged to constantly listen to your body and go at your own pace.

    "The accommodations were spectacular; the yoga was both physically challenging and spiritually uplifting, the outings and food were top-notch, but what was most impressive about our group is that we were so open with each other about our lives. Being on vacation will do that to you, but there also has to be a certain good chemistry that can't be legislated. This was truly a moment in time that we won't forget. Laura, you are doing more than running a business. You are creating communities of like-minded people from all over the world. We come together for a week of fun and yoga practice and emerge a bonded, loving band of friends. This is something extraordinary!"

    "We have safely landed back in Canada and are trying to cope with the time change and learning to do without our daily prosecco, pastries for breakfast, gelato for lunch and of course the delicious pasta and pizza for dinner. What a wonderful week, I miss our yoga classes, I need Sarah here to remind me to relax and enjoy the moment and of course dab me with lavender! It was so great meeting all of you, miss you guys, hopefully we can all meet up in Greece next year! Laura you organized a wonderful trip!"

    "Thank you very much for the great time you created for us. I really enjoyed the beautiful places you chose for us and the great yoga classes we could practice with Holly. It was a very special experience to practice yoga on the little wood trace with the beauty of the view of the sea. Being back in the city - in the noise with cars, telephone and all the requests of clients and business partners at the same time, I can now breathe and remember this beauty and peaceful view in my eyes."

    "A perfect balance between excellent yoga classes and a fun holiday with a great group of people. Beautiful location, perfect organization, relaxing days at the beach and evenings out at delicious restaurants. Laura makes everyone feel comfortable and part of the group, and Hollys yoga classes by the sea were wonderful. I want to go back!"

    "A great holiday - yoga, hotel and setting were all excellent, but most important in making this a special experience were Laura and Holly. Laura has an intimate knowledge of Mykonos and organized restaurants, beach trips etc. with a personal touch. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was done without fuss. She has a knack of being well organized but making everyone feel thoroughly relaxed."

    "The best part of the day was our restorative yoga classes at sunset by the sea. I've never felt so peaceful, calm and grounded. My hectic life back home seemed miles away and I could finally breathe, but really breathe, with a completely new perspective on life. Thank you for a wonderful yoga retreat and for opening up those feelings again."

    "This is exactly what we were looking for - a yoga retreat where we felt all the great benefits of yoga but did not have to give up everything else, this was not your typical yoga retreat in a secluded place, instead we could enjoy all the things we like when on holiday, with the incredible feeling from practicing yoga every day, especially near the sea. We loved going around the town and discovering a different beach each day, it was nice to try out different restaurants and had some great meals and wine. The perfect way to include yoga into a real holiday."

    "This is the perfect escape when you still need a little summer sunshine to keep you going in October! Practicing yoga outside by the sea was really a special treat, everything was arranged to perfection, thank you for making me feel so good again."

    "I was a little hesitant to go on my own but as soon as I arrived I immediately felt the warmth of the group, there were people from all over with different stories and backgrounds and reasons for coming to our yoga retreat, it was so comforting to go through this experience with them, yoga does something magical to you, and this yoga retreat did something magical to me."

    " I must say that it was a great yoga holiday. You people were all great, and I felt I have known you for years. Laura, you did a great job making sure every one was happy. Holly, you are a great teacher, you managed to give us the confidence to do all the hard poses. I must also say that you have a great soothing voice which added something special about the practice. I did mention this once and everybody agreed, so taking up singing on the side might be a good idea!"
