Above is a photo of us last time. It is a quiet road leading to the small town and water front restaurants in Molyvos.  Such a charming little town.

A yoga journey to Lesvos, Greece to explore the artistry in you.  Also known as Mytilini, an epic place of pilgrimage to awaken and nourish your inner creativity. Lesvos, with a rich history and mythology, has been a favorite place for artists, poets and writers for hundreds of years.  A quiet secluded island just off the coast of Turkey is steeped in romance, art, and mystery. The time of year and island location is a perfect choice for a yoga retreat because its quiet, weather is pleasant and tourism is minimal making this a truly authentic Greek experience.

The retreat will focus on awakening our individual and collective creativity while immersing deeply into the understanding of the seven directions and the elements that make up the seven directions East, South, West, North, Earth, Sky and Inner heart. We will attune with daily yoga, enjoy the rhythms of greek life, swim in the Aegean sea, play in the local hot springs, watch beautiful sunrises and sunsets, stroll the cobblestone villages, eat delicious local food, hike the islands trails, and optional visits to the islands castle, olive oil factory, fishing harbors and beaches.

Experience  Greece

Greek Yoga Retreat Center

It is 10 minutes walking distance from the sea and the picturesque town of Molyvos,
located on the Greek Island of Lesvos in the eastern Aegean sea nestled on a beautiful  hill-side.

Molyvos – or Mithimna in the old Greek – is one of the most attractive small towns of Greece. It is architecturally protected due to its historical importance as an ancient seaport – dating from before the fall of Troy.

Molyvos is situated on a conical shaped hill crowned by a magnificent medieval castle. A walk through the agora (market) – roofed by flower arcades down to the picturesque port, is an expedition through the eventful history of the island.

But Molyvos is not only about the past.  Since the Sixties it has been a favorite location for romantics, writers and artists. One can find traditional restaurants, non crowded beaches, cafes and shops background for a relaxing time.

TRAVEL:
Please note that if you are heading to Greece from California, you will need to depart by July 11th to arrive in time for the start of the retreat. We recommend flying into Athens and then taking a flight to Mitilini, Lesvos on July 12th and stay the night near the airport.  We will make recommendations on places to stay on the 12th of July. There will be an option for group pick up and transportation at 9:30 am at a select local hotel to transport those to the retreat center on the 13th. There may be a stop at a hot springs/swim and lunch on the way to retreat.  
You may also want to opt to extend your European stay before or after the retreat. We can discuss these options and best ways of transport once you sign up.  The two options to get to the island is by boat from Athens or directly by air.  Give yourself at least one extra day if you are traveling to the island by boat as all things are much slower in Greece. I call it Greece time which may include variations in boat schedules without notice.
You will need a passport for entry to and from Greece.  Be sure your passport is up-to-date, does not expire within six months of your departure date from Greece, and has at least two empty pages.
We are monitoring the requirements to enter and return to the U.S. from Greece.  At this time it is required to do an antigen test prior to coming back to the U.S.  These requirements change regularly so we will stay updated as its closer. Your airline is the best source of what is required coming and going to Greece or any European country.  At this time, which is subject to change, everyone is required to take a PCR or Antigen test regardless of vacinnation status prior to boarding the airplane. This is early so this is likely to change by the time we travel in July.
