Retreats run June 2nd-8th and June 9th-15th.
We start each morning with 2 hours of vinyasa flow integrating breathwork, mantra, and guided meditation. Evening sessions will flow between restorative yoga, yoga nidra and thai massage.
Meals are all organic and locally sourced, cooked by our incredible hosts Lissa and Corne. It’s so good they had to make their own cookbook by popular demand. The lovely Katerina offers soul-healing disguised as the greatest shiatsu massage you will ever experience.
The Island itself cannot be described, only experienced. Suffice to say there is a reason they’ve been recognized by all the top travel magazines. Your free time can be spent lying in a hidden hammock, swimming in the sea, kayaking around the island and a skinny-dip at night in the phosphorescence is life changing.

Soulful Spring Yoga Retreat
with Gretchen Hickmott and Marley Vigdorth
March 28th-31st 2019
Santa Fe Lake
We will call upon awakening the awareness of how the 5 senses can not only lead us into greater presence and appreciation for the now but also support the expansion of your intuition. We’ll explore how each of the 5 senses have a relationship with the 5 elements through the morning and evening yoga practices with Marley. As you clarify your connection to each of the 5 senses and the 5 elements your ability to discern how they communicate intuitive messages through your body deepens.
Gretchen will guide you through lecture, meditation and group work into uncovering how you can wake up and expand your intuitive abilities through greater intimacy with the 5 senses. Teaching you how to access and communicate with your own sacred symbols, totems, and soul language through sensory explorations you will develop greater trust and respect for the great ally that is your intuition.
