7 Days Yoga Retreat in Ηalkidiki
Halkidiki is literally sculpted by nature forces to balance earth and sea. They say that no other place in Greece can boast beaches like those of Halkidiki. Still, the region stands for far more than beaches. Halkidiki is the perfect combination of the reviving Mediterranean light, the unspoiled land, the lively communities and a glorious past to explore.
Myth has it that the great Greek philosopher Aristotle, who was born here and spent his life away from his native land -if only to teach the young Alexander the Great- never ceased to praise the honey of Halkidiki! Was it a metaphor or did he actually mean the renowned honey we cherish today? There is no way to know but who cares! You too will love the land and the rich produce of its gardens and orchards. It is truly a place of dreams… and your dream has only just begun…
Practice with the sound of the sea waves, wander with the locals in the magic landscapes of Greece, taste the fine gastronomy in a spirit of love and sharing, this is your chance. Offer yourself an unforgettable summer experience! This retreat aims to a unique yoga experience for every participant, related to your level. Yoga Yamas wants the participants to broaden their knowledge as well as discover and enjoy the beauty of Greece, as they can only be shown by the locals.
