Santorini Sunset Yoga and Meditation Retreat for the Soul
Yoga and Meditation ~ Coastal Hiking ~ Sunset Cruise ~ Wine Tasting ~ Relax, Rejuvenate, Recharge
October 6-11, 2024 (5 nights)
with Sally Mitchell, founder, leader and teacher of Body Flows Retreats

Join Sally for a rejuvenating and enlightening yoga and meditation Sunset Retreat for the Soul in stunning Santorini, one of the most beautiful and magical Greek islands! We will be staying at the lovely, historical resort Aethrio Sunset Village Resort in the heart of the picturesque town of Oia with its whitewashed, cliffside cave homes, blue domed buildings, stunning sunsets and gorgeous views over the turquoise Aegean Sea during our daily yoga and meditation practices on the sunset terrace.

Enjoy a cataraman cruise in the Caldera in the Aegean Sea with swimming and sunset dinner, coastal hikes with stunning views over the Caldera and Aegean Sea, visit a volcano, hot springs, the island of Thirassia, local winery for food and wine pairing, volcanic black beaches and more! Nourish your body with healthy Mediterranean cuisine, relax and rejuvenate by the outdoor pool and practice the art of being present with beauty all around. We are excited to explore everything this beautiful island of Santorini has to offer and we look forward to sharing this yoga and meditation retreat for the soul with you in stunning Santorini!

The morning yoga classes will be vinyasa flow yoga for all levels, linking movement with the breath for an energizing yet relaxing flow. With creative and balanced sequences, strengthening and lengthening, detoxing and pranayama, you will experience a strong, safe and supportive practice. Modifications and options will be provided for different abilities. You'll have the opportunity to play with some backbends, arm balances, and inversions if you choose, and cool down with some deep stretches to restore the body and mind.

The evening classes will be yin or restorative yoga, with longer held seated and supine postures, stretching, lengthening, releasing tension and creating more space in deeper layers of connective tissues in the body. Yin yoga is also a perfect opportunity to journey inwards and practice meditation. All levels are welcome as we provide options and modifications so everyone feels comfortable.

We look forward to sharing this journey with you in stunning Santorini, Greece!

She did a great job of offering yoga modifications for all the different levels attending. Sally fosters an open and positive vibe and I left feeling so relaxed and joyful.

Thank you, Sally!!!" - Aida R, Nov 2019

Location

Aethrio Sunset Village Hotel, Oia, Santorini Island, Greece

Aethrio Sunset Village Hotel hosts many yoga and wellness retreats and is the perfect, charming location for us to relax and recharge. In the heart of the famous and luxurious village of Oia, it's just a few minutes walk to local sights, shops and restaurants, whilst also offers a calm, quiet and secluded space for yoga, meditation, watching the sunset from the Sunset Terrace, relaxing by the pool and enjoying incredible vistas over the Aegean Sea. Note that the town of Oia is on a hill and there are staircases at the hotel and some steps around the town of Oia. The hotel porter can assist with luggage as needed.

Just 18 kilometers from the Santorini airport (JTR), the hotel is easily accessible by car or bus. Many international flights will have a layover in Athens (ATH) or another European city on the way to Santorini. Another option (and possibly more cost effective) is to fly into Athens, then get the Athens to Santorini ferry.

Average weather in Santorini early October is in the mid 70s. View details here.
