I've visited Tao's twice. First for a teacher training with Sarah Power's learning about Yin yoga and mindfulness meditation and later to participate in the long stay program they offer; The staff became family! They are the friendliest, accommodating, hospitable people I've met around Europe. Daily activities like yoga, Pilates, meditation. It was amazing to practice yoga in such a stunning environment - surrounded my the clearest turquoise waters. Spectacular views looking out to Naxos Island. The food is excellent. There's a lot of variety. I am vegetarian and had many dishes to choose from. I can tell the cooks put a lot of care and love into the preparation of the food.

I would go back in a heart beat! I recommend checking out all the different programs they offer over the Summer - there's a possibility to volunteer and serve this wonderful establishment. It was truly a wonderful experience for me.
