7-day Yoga Retreat in Milos
Why yoga retreat in Milos
Milos was chosen by Yoga Yamas because of a special reason: In 2009, the Holy Synod proclaimed Milos a SACRED ISLAND, as the Catacombs constitute the most ancient monument of Christianity. It was the first gathering place of the first Christians. They were used as a municipal cemetery as well as place of worship. Their size is unique in the entire Greece and they are one of the most famous and remarkable Christian world monuments, next to the catacombs of Rome and of the Holy Land.
In this sacred island, we‘ll let our souls open for 7 days and allow them to overflow with the bright cycladic light!
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Ηatha yoga will be conducted by Katerina Patmazoglou. We’ll practice yoga twice a day. Morning practice will prepare our body and mind to receive the gifts of the beginning day. Evening’s practice will help us absorb what we’ve experienced and to share in a loving atmosphere whatever each and every one is willing to share.
During the retreat, small workshops will take place, which will introduce you to the meanings of energetic therapies, inner strength and awareness.

View words from the instructor
I am Greek. I love every little corner of Greece! Ever since I was a little child I have traveled almost all over my country. And yet Greece keeps stunning me! Last few years my “senses” are more sensitive and now I understand why… Why I love to walk in her paths… Why I enjoy so much to breath with all my existence her air! Why we had so many philosophers…
There isn’t more sacred time than the one when one lets his vision wandering between the two blues, the blue of the sky and the blue of the sea! This is the moment that the soul is southing. Is making peace. At that time you feel love overflowing. There is plenty enough to give away… This is what you can expect from the retreat in Milos island.
Every time I visit Milos I’m overwhelmed with awe! The magnificent volcanic landscape… Earth’s power in all of its glory, revealing right in front of my eyes, creating really art work….
Every place has its secret… As many seas you may have traveled, as many landscapes you may have seen, will not compare with what you’ll see, taste and breathe in Milos! You just MUST be there!
We’ll stay at Apollon. The hotel is build right next to the sea, in a pure cycladitic style. Lying just 300 meters from the center of the village Pollonia, we’ll enjoy the serene atmosphere while being a breath away from the picturesque village with the best fish taverns.
Brunch will be provided everyday of the retreat. Vegetarian dinner will also be served all seven days, including arrival day. Meat dishes can be provided on request.
