SPRING YOGA RETREAT

Caveland, Santorini

March 25-30, 2020

Welcome the spring with a revitalising yoga retreat in Santorini! In the morning we will practice together an active hatha flow yoga. In the evening you will be guided through a calming dru yoga practice, meditation, pranayama and a relaxation. After the morning practice we serve a delicious fresh vegetarian brunch in our garden with variety of fresh seasonal fruits, vegetables, freshly pressed juices, smoothies and more.

You will learn about a local cuisine during our welcome dinner. Typical local dishes are mainly vegan or vegetarian! Moreover you will go on a private tour where you immerse yourself into a 5000 years old history of Lost Atlantis in Akrotiri. Afterwards our guide will take you for a walk to a typical local village. During the tour you will have many opportunities to take stunning photos and taste world-famous local wines. Boost your creative fire at a local pottery workshop where you will paint your own plates. And complete your relaxation with two massages.

Santorini in the springtime is very colourful, flowers are blooming, the air is fresh. The days are usually pleasantly warm, evenings and mornings are cool. As far as the weather permits we will practice on our outdoors yoga rooftop overlooking the sea so take warmer sport clothes with you. The views are spectacular! Spring can surprise us with some rain or wind so on those days our classes will take place inside in a traditional cave.

ABOUT CAVELAND:

The history of Caveland is 300 years old. This complex was originally used as a winery. The grapes were collected from local vineyards that are surrounding it. Afterwards they were mashed in a well that is located at today’s reception. Finally the wine was stored in the caves that are now converted into cave rooms.IMG_5989CavelandIMG_6007-HDRCavelandIMG_6023CavelandIMG_6025CavelandIMG_6027CavelandIMG_7341CavelandIMG_7345-HDRCaveland

This place was later known as a tennis club and it was in the late seventies one of the first hotels in Santorini. It was refurbished and re-opened in 2011 as a boutique hostel. It offers a mixture of private and dorm-style accommodation. The property is a 15 000 sqm large with a big pool, numerous gardens and hidden corners. It is in a picturesque village of Karterados just next to Santorini’s capital Fira town. Karterados village lies on the main bus route connecting Fira with the south of the island. Therefor the location is ideal for those who want to explore the island and still be away from the crowds. Here is Caveland website.
