Greece has been an amazing destination for many years. Recently, the country has gone through some challenges, but those challenges have opened up some amazing bargains. So we not only found amazing accommodations at bargain prices, but we have a chance to support the island’s economy and this family run business when they need it most. Lesvos is the island that the Pope visited in 2015 to bring words of hope and solitary to the refugees who were staying on the island at that time. The island is beautiful and there are no refugee problems where we will be staying.
Accommodations for our Greece Retreat
We stay 7 nights / days at the wonderful Milelja Yoga Retreat Center on Lesvos. They have a beautiful, sacred round yoga den, great swimming pool, nice grounds to wander, sauna, and wonderful meals. Yoga retreat groups return every year, so it was hard for me to reserve a space, as it is so popular (a very good sign that I look for when I book retreats!). Ten minute walk to the beach, and 15 minute walk to the amazing town of Molyvos, with wonderful Greek ambiance and great food! At right is a pic of Molyvos at night.
Sacred space for our Yoga and Meditation
Milelja has a wonderful sacred space for our daily yoga, meditation and other healing activities. Please see pic at left. They also have a nice swimming pool and nice garden setting for relaxing and strolling. Nice views of Molyvos and the beach in the not too distance.
Enjoy up to twice daily Yoga, Meditation, Playshops on various healing, growth and empowerment themes, kirtan (call and response heart chanting), hiking, swimming and other possible side trips (see below).
Most Meals Included
2/3 of the meals are included. Daily buffet breakfasts, four lunches, and three dinners. We leave one meal on our own each day (or with group) to sample the amazing food and restaurants in Molyvos, which is renowned for its Greek ambiance. At right is a pic of one of the most popular local dining establishments, with outside seating, which we will visit.
Nearly all of us will fly into Athens, where you are on your own to stay a night or two if you choose. Then you have a choice of taking a ferry or flying into Mytilini on Lesvos. The flight costs about $100 each way, or $200 round trip. Plan to arrive on Lesvos by June 3 at the latest, as that night is included in your trip, and we begin that day. Then you could fly or ferry out on or after June 10.
$1,495 per person double or triple occupancy, or $1,395 per person if early bird deposit paid by January 1. Also, please note that there are some more spacious, deluxe accommodations available for an extra $100 per person, again double or triple occupancy.
Roy Holman: I am a 500 hour Certified Yoga teacher, in the Viniyoga tradition. I teach a safe, gentle, body-friendly, grounded, breath-connected, meditative, flowing traditional hatha yoga – a meditation in motion really. I like to move slow, give time to breathe deeply and savor the poses. I also teach breath-work (pranayama) and meditation, and also try to incorporate the many aspects of emotional healing and balancing I have learned. The meditation is a mindfulness style, with focus on breath awareness, heart opening, body senses, emotional clearing, and connection on all levels (body, breath, emotions, Earth, Spirit).
Liz Gross: “I believe all healing involves alignment of the soul with the body.” Liz is a gifted sound and vibration healer, and teaches with Roy on retreats. Liz teaches yoga, meditation, Oneness and often does some of the cooking on our retreats. “When you’re consciously in touch with the life energy within yourself, you have awareness & communication with the flow of energy that connects you to spirit. I feel very passionate about Vibrational Medicine and love working with others in this way & helping others to connect with their purpose and passion in life. Vibrational Energy Medicine brings the physical, emotional, mental, & spiritual bodies back into balance, which opens the way for rebuilding the healing systems of the body.”
