July 2nd - July 9th 2017
Yoga retreat in Greece
A whole week with yoga, meditation and immersion on the beautiful greek island of Lesbos.
Let go of the expectations of everyday life, leave the stress at home, and give yourself a week to breathe in the present moment and feel the joy of life. On a yoga holiday you can really immerse in yoga and meditation and experience the freedom and change it may cause.
We start the day with a guided meditation followed by a slow variation of Vinyasa Yoga, where the movements are linked together in a flow that warms, strengthens and softens the entire body. The level is adjusted for each participant and beginners and experts are welcome.
Early in the evening we do Hatha yoga, focusing on presence, breathing, slowing down and feeling every fiber in your body relax. We conclude with Meditation and Relaxation. Each day has a theme taken from yoga philosophy, and we work with the ideas behind yoga in relation to everyday life and as part of a personal development process.
During the day, it is possible to walk on the beach or in the countryside, gaze out over the Aegean Sea, or enjoy the moment in the pool at our hotel Milelja. One afternoon is free, so you can go on a long trip if you like, and in turn we will do meditative yoga by candlelight in the evening.
Milelja Guest House is a beautiful and homey hotel that specializes in yogaretreats. We have the whole place to ourselves. There are no other guests, just peace and quiet. There are single and double rooms, chlorine-free pool with water from the on-site mineral source, a warm jacuzzi, health spa, possibility for massages, a rich breakfast buffet and stunning surroundings. The beautiful yoga shala is round and overlooking the mountains and the small medieval town of Molyvos. For more information see www.milelja.com
The beach near Milelja is one of my favorite places on earth: It is completely peaceful, 10 m between the deck chairs, nothing but water, sky, horizon and the sound of the waves. Molyvos is a pleasant harbor town at Lesbos ' northeastern tip, overlooking Turkey. All the houses are built in natural stone and the town is built into the mountain , with small steep streets. The city is protected, which means that it is not legally build in modern materials Therefore there are no large hotels or clubs. For many year, Molyvos has been a popular destination for yoga enthusiasts because of the beautiful scenery, the quaint little cafes and tavernas and the warm atmosphere.
