Eco - friendly villas

Syros is considered one of the most picturesque Cyclades capitals and it stands out for its Venetian architecture. Your destination is a cluster of renovated stone houses offering a magnificent sea view, with their terraces being the perfect settings for alfresco dining. Located at the southwest of Syros, only 7 minutes away from sandy beaches, the stone villas are surrounded by flourishing vineyards, figs and olive groves. Each stone villa has been renovated with care using local construction materials. They are the perfect getaway to provide tranquility and relaxation combining traditional accommodation with modern amenities. With sustainability at the forefront, the property generates enough power to cover all the electricity demands of the villas through the use of solar panels. The yoga classes will be performed in the vineyard at a covered outdoor yoga shala facing the ocean. See more images

Yoga Asana & Special Classes

  • Morning Yoga: Begin your day with Hatha flow yoga classes. Hatha yoga awakens your mind and body through a series of yoga poses, sounds and meditation that allows you to become more aware of your blocks, whether emotional or physical. 

  • Afternoon Practice: As a restorative practice, this class includes a combination of slow flow with focus on movement and breath along with pranayama techniques and meditation. 

  • Masterclass: Experience the transformative power of Kundalini yoga that provides detoxification and releases trauma from body and mind. Kundalini yoga allows the free flow of energy through the balance of the chakras. In this way, your flow of energy is aligned and blocks and limiting beliefs are eliminated. 

  • Yoga Nidra with Tibetan bowls under the stars: Our yoga nidra practice will only be held once throughout the retreat for a deep relaxation session with Tibetan bowls. This ancient practice quiets the conscious mind, bringing one into a deep state of relaxation and healing.

All practices are open to all levels from beginners to more advanced yogis.

COVID-19 | Yoga & Safety: Yoga sessions take place outdoors in a covered spacious shala, that is filled with natural light and easily aired. Guests are provided with a mat, and they are responsible for the cleaning of their mat throughout the duration of the retreat.
