7 Day The Art of Inner Stillness Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation Retreat in Koufonisia, Cyclades

Koufonisi Villas, Ano Koufonisi, Koufonisi 843 00, Greece

Mindfulness Meditation and Yoga Retreat Greece

Silence and quietness give you the possibility to feel sensations, to connect with your body, to listen to your inner voice instead of the daily chatter and thoughts of your mind and outer distractions. It gives you the opportunity to cultivate your body, mind and heart awareness and embed your physical and mental practice in your system in a holistic and wholesome way. Joy, compassion, courage, grace, and equanimity will become your daily compass.

Program

The small unspoiled Cycladic island Koufonisia is a rare gem and a true hideaway where the sound of the sea and the wind will surround you. No cars, no scooters, just a handful of tourists, little secret bays, blue skies, a vast wideness, bright sun, and nature that leaves you in awe.

The energy of this tiny island, the sea, the food, the teachings will rejuvenate you and contribute to your overall well-being. The only downside, you might not want to take the ferry back home; there is some magic here.

Instructors

Karianne Kraaijestein

Location

This retreat takes place in Koufonisia, a small Cycladic gem of an island located in Greece. Koufonisia means “the hollow islands” in Greek - two low little islands of a friable rock have had their coastlines nibbled away by the wind and waves to form wonderful beaches and caves and strange rock formations. Not easy to get to, not much to do - this is the Cyclades as they were 50 years ago.

Pori beach

Due to its horseshoe shape, Pori beach offers adequate protection from the prevailing north wind. With fine white sand and clear turquoise waters, Pori is ideal for swimming, snorkelling, and windsurfing in a pristine natural setting.

There is also a choice of two beachfront tavernas, which means villa guests can spend interrupted hours by the sea. Peaceful and unspoilt, the surrounding area is good for walking, particularly since motor vehicles are noticeable by their absence. The residence is not far from Chora, the only village on the island. Apart from its charming harbour, this traditional Cycladic settlement has a number of shops, tavernas and café-bars, making it ideal for a leisurely stroll, a cool drink or a delicious meal of fresh seafood.

Piraeus port is a 60 minutes drive from Athens International Airport, accessible via metro, and the high-speed ferry takes 4,5 hours to Koufonisia.
