Dates: May 26 – June 2, 2018
We are excited to return to the same Villa, Spa and Resort for our 2018 Yoga Retreat in Mykonos.
The villa is a 7,000 sq/ft, Mediterranean style home that combines the white “Cycladic” style walls with modern Italian furniture. Various, spacious white-marble terraces and a large pond style waterfront infinity pool surround the house. There are two spacious outdoor dining and barbecue areas, which are perfect for open-air dinners. The living room combined with open-style kitchen and formal dining area features large windows and balconies overlooking the pool and the sea, offering a panoramic view of the Aegean even while indoors. With such a majestic view and plenty of indoor and outdoor areas, we have enough space to meditate and practice yoga throughout the week.
Our property is considered one of the most unique and exclusive villas that offer the widest range and most inclusive services and facilities for a yoga retreat in Mykonos.
Services at this property include air-conditioning, en-suite bathrooms and an in-house laundry facility, as well as daily maid service and change of bath and pool towels. Bed linens are changed twice during our week.
In addition to the services and amenities of the villa, as guests, we are afforded the opportunity to enjoy the luxurious facilities and services of the 5 star hotel spa and resort, which is located a short walking distance away. There, we may enjoy use of the indoor pool, fully equipped private gym, and the Turkish hammam. As guests of the Villa, discounts on the numerous relaxing and rejuvenating spa treatments are available to us at the resort. And finally, just below the villa and hotel, we have access to a private cove and beach. The beach is maintained by the resort with sun beds, umbrellas and full food/drink menu. The natural cove sits below the villa property looking out onto the islands of Delos and Tinos.
The Chef Meals:
After waking up to a morning yoga practice, we will adjourn to the many dining areas for a daily meal. Prepared by a local chef, the food and drink will include the standard American brunch menu with regional items popular throughout Greece. We will adjust to dietary requirements when possible.
The Yoga Practice:
There will be two daily yoga practices taught in the Iyengar Tradition by Michael Ruccolo. The morning practice will offer each student the necessary openings to awaken the senses while the evening practice will restore the body from any one of the many excursions, reading on the hillside, lounging by the beach or swinging idly in a hammock on the terrace overlooking the southern beaches and islands of Tinos and Delos. Efforts will be made to align each practice with planned activities and/or needs of all participants. The following props will be needed for each student: 1 mat, 3 blankets, 1 block. Everyone will need to have their own props.
Mykonos offers visitors access to a diverse cultural immersion that encompasses all that Greece has to offer: numerous art galleries, incredible dining, spectacular beaches and proximity to a UNESCO World Heritage site. The retreat is scheduled for when the weather is typically warm but before the tourist masses arrive.
Optional excursions to take advantage of this setting are available as part of this retreat, with many at discounted group rates.

Ticket prices are currently at the lowest in many years and intra-Euro flights or trains are quite inexpensive. Linda Mononsmith, a travel agent within our community, can help arrange connecting flights between US and European cities and then on to Mykonos. Her contact information is email@example.com or 310-376-8956. She can also help arrange any other travel before or after the retreat with the recommendation being to do any other European travel before (prices are lower, tourists are fewer and jet-lag / time difference adjustment can be done).
