For a breathtaking and unforgettable sunshine and yoga holiday in Greece, come and join us on this magical island of Santorini. Feel totally rejuvenated and energised in the Greek sunshine. The wonderful heart warming people of Greece, the food and stunning scenery make it a very special location to retreat to. We invite you to indulge in first class yoga, sun, sea, the most awe-inspiring views across the caldera and stunning sunsets. Wake up to morning yoga looking out to the Aegean sea and then while away the days by the pool, wander around the cobbled streets of Oia, sip a mint tea and admire the views of the caldera.
Santorini is one of the most dramatic Greek islands for scenery with it’s little white washed towns perched on the sides of steep cliffs overlooking the great volcanic crater and deep blue sea known as the caldera. We will be waking up with the Greek sun for morning practice in the gentle shade of grape vines, then a leisurely brunch before the day is yours to do as you choose. We seal our day with yoga and meditation under the cooler Greek sun; digesting the day and your practice. As the day closes we will enjoy healthy nourishing food prepared with love by our caring hosts, feeling utterly satisfied.

The retreat is held at our stunning yoga hotel, set at the bottom of the hillside in this magical volcanic island, just outside the very beautiful village of Oia. The hotel is set amongst vineyards and gardens, providing a beautiful, relaxing setting in which to fully unwind.

There is a large pool area with a friendly bar and restaurant for lunches, dinners or snacks throughout the day.
We offer two yoga sessions each day – one morning and one early evening – with Wenche who is our Senior yoga teacher and very much loved with AdventureYogi guests.
