SACRED in the
Join us for six nights, seven days from July 1st-July 8th on the Ionian Sea in Greece. This year's adventure is on the island of Lefkada - with it's super secluded beaches and beautiful private villas...
It's no secret....we LOVE Greece.
Join us on our annual get-a-way and experience the islands, sacred-style.
From twice-daily yoga options to private, secluded beaches, this trip will be an amazing week of exploration on and off the mat. Our week will navigate the full spectrum of yoga - using these tools to create a sense of wholeness. You'll practice dynamic, vinyasa yoga, restorative yin, yin yoga, yoga nidra and create a daily breathwork ritual. You'll learn and experience things that are not always available in group classes and have time to ask questions, to re-align and strengthen your practice.
While on Lefkada, we'll explore together with group excursions but also have plenty of time for individual adventure or long, afternoon naps and reading by the pool in your villa.
Retreat includes breakfast, dinner, accomodations, yoga, and group excursions. You'll be responsible for travel to our retreat center in Lefkada and any solo exploring you'd like to undertake.

What will my week look like?
We believe yoga retreats shouldn't take themselves too seriously - after all yoga is about balance and aligning our many sides as human beings. Each morning will start with yoga in the private, 95 square meter yoga studio with beautiful white wooden floors and an open white wooden ceiling. It is surrounded with thick large windows and screens so you can enjoy the uninterrupted blue views. The windows and screens also allow you to circulate fresh air during classes. The shala is fully equipped with premium thick, anti-slip yoga mats, blocks, straps, bolsters and speakers for Music. It's our private yoga-oasis in Greece. Feel free to leave your mat at home <3
Each day you'll enjoy group breakfast, mid-day fruits and an amazing mediterranean dinner, made with love and from scratch. If you have dietary restrictions we'll gather those in due time...but fear not - you'll be taken care of without compromising the amazing flavors and freshness of Greece!
Between meals the day is open for adventure or quiet reflection but we hope you like water and beaches as they are bountiful here. We've visited many islands in Greece and this year we'll be exploring Lefkada, Greece where we'll have 4 private villas. Each villa holds 3-4 private rooms with ensuite bathrooms and each villa has it's own pool, living area, balconies, and outdoor areas.
The area belongs to the environmental protection network Nature 2000, because it is a habitat for dolphins and seals. It is a completely private, low-to-zero crowded beach and can be accessed only through our properties or via a boat. The beach is covered with small white pebbles and bits of sand. The crystal blue and turquoise waters will blow your mind. The beach is a short walk below our villas...for easy access. We'll take one group excursion to Nidri, a sweet, quiant town that's home to both waterfalls (which we'll explore) and an cute town with shops and cafes. Lefkada is not a super-touristy island so you'll get a feel for the untouched beauty of Greece.
During the remainder of the week - there are tons of beaches to explore, hiking to partake in and serenity in our villas. You can grab a boat or catch up on your reading. We allow plenty of space for both!
Once registered, we will contact you to confirm your reservations and welcome you to our retreat. A full itinerary will be available two months prior to departure. We will communicate with you prior to then to get dietary restrictions, yoga history (so we include your favorite postures!), emergency contact info, liability release (if you are new to sacred thread), flight details and contact info.

Coming solo but on a budget? Reserve a shared room and we will place you with a roommate. Most of our retreat goers book shared rooms and typically don't have a "pre-arranged" roommate. We host a Pre-trip meet up so you'll get the opportunity to make friends in advance if that's important to you. If we are not able to place you with a roommmate, please note you will be upgraded to a single room rate. Failure to pay the additional cost at least six weeks prior to arrival in Greece will result in forfeiting your room and payments.
