About 90 minutes outside of Athens, in the mountains of Greece, overlooking the small seaside town of Ancient Epidarvos, with horses and sheep that roam freely amongst the vineyard, pistachio orchards and ancient olive trees, there’s a beautiful villa known as “High Grove”. We invite you to join us in this peaceful haven for a relaxing and rejuvenating 7-day yoga retreat, September 23-30, 2017.
All levels of yoga experience are welcome. Every morning and evening your experienced yoga teachers, Tracey Sondik, E-RYT 500 and Jude Kochman E-RYT 500, will lead an easy flow, yin/restorative/and slow yoga practice. In the afternoons we will explore the surrounding countryside and ocean, enjoy delicious meals prepared by a local chef, and take excursions to visit nearby archeological and natural wonders.
During relaxing afternoons, we can walk or drive to the beautiful seaside village of Ancient Epidavros, which has quaint restaurants, snorkeling, and other local treasures. In addition, we will plan 3 excursions including guided tours to The ancient theater of Epidavros, a very famous archeological site, the town of Nafplio, which was for a brief time the capital of Greece, is a very beautiful place to visit, and island/beach trips to Spetses and Hydra. These excursions are included in the price of the trip.
The land price in total is $1700 exclusive of any individual purchases or gratuities. This price includes: round trip transportation to and from Athens airport, 7 nights of accommodations, 3 meals per day, daily yoga, and 3 excursions. The price may change slightly depending on type of accommodations and excursions. Single, double, and triple rooms are available.
Flights are approximately $1,000.00 from New York to Athens but this may vary dependent on airlines and fuel costs. We can assist in flights through a local travel agency if a group wants to go together from JFK. There will also be an optional full day trip to the city of Athens during the week. Cost will be in addition for those participants interested. We will have more specific details about this closer to the trip.
