Bamboo Yoga Retreat is excited to announce that we are launching our new summer yoga retreats in Europe!!

 

Unique soul-feeding ‘POP UPS’ in stunning locations with our amazing teachers.

 

Join Yoga teacher Dina Cohen for a week of Yoga and Meditation amidst the tranquillity of this off-the-beaten-track island paradise.

 

A week to nourish and replenish, soaking up the best of the late Summer rays to sustain us through the change of seasons. This will be an opportunity to pause and reflect, taking stock and setting intentions for the months ahead so that we can be the very best that we are in all that we do.

 

There will be a daily Vinyasa Flow practice which will be presented in a step-by-step format, suitable for all levels. Additionally, we will learn techniques and practices from Mindfulness, Qi Gong and Yoga Nidra that will support us in maintaining balance and a sense of ease and well-being, whatever life throws our way.

 

There will be plenty of free time too to soak up the sunshine, explore the island and make new friends or take some quiet time for ourselves.

 

As with all our Bamboo yoga holidays, it’s a chance to develop your practise whilst being in a safe supported space with like minded people. This week will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

How to get to us

Susanne who is hosting this retreat will guide you on all bookings to make sure you have ease of travel and boat times, she will then meet you at the boat port and bring you to the centre.

To get to Antiparos, you must first reach Paros island either by:

To get from Paros to Antiparos, the ferry for Antiparos leaves from Pounta and is easily reached by local bus or taxi, both from Parikia (the port of Paros) or from the airport. The ferry journey to Antiparos takes between 5-10 minutes.

A direct boat also runs from the port of Paros to Antiparos and takes around 30 minutes.

 

Location

Glaros studios apartments, Kalargyrou, Antiparos, Greece, http://www.glarosantiparos.gr/en.

 

Stunning Greek apartments with comfortable beds, ensuite bathrooms and doors that open out onto the beautiful terrace, the beach is a 5-minute stroll away.

 

Antiparos is a small picturesque island at the heart of the Cyclades group of islands in the southern Aegean, which is known for its distinctive beauty. Antiparos is situated less than one nautical mile from its larger sister island of Paros, to which it is connected by a local ferry. The island offers over 60km of stunning shoreline and is blessed with crystalline emerald waters, golden sandy beaches and other extraordinary natural wonders such as the famous Cave of Antiparos.

 

Glaros studios apartments are located on the northeast side of Antiparos and are no more than 100 metres from the sea and a secluded stretch of sandy beach. The main village of Antiparos with its narrow, cobbled stone alleyways and streets, white-washed houses decorated with thriving pink and purple bougainvilleas and shadowy eucalyptus trees, is also within a 10-minute walking distance.

 

We’ve chosen May which is outside the main tourist season, so we will have the entire retreat venue to ourselves and the flights are cheap.
