THE EGG OF LIFE YOGA RETREAT
Certified with Yoga Alliance and The Sunshine Network.
Active Bodyworker (Yoga, Dance, Massage) since 2012.
Welcome to THE EGG OF LIFE YOGA AND RE-CONNECTING RETREAT – a carefully curated experience at my favourite place on this little planet: The sea, mountains and healing soil of Ikaria island.
Splendid sea and mountain views, the turquoise sparkling clear water, the intoxicating smell of Greek herbs, the vibrant stillness in the Yoga Shala and the basic living of the locals… All of it keeps reminding me how everything is connected and intertwined. The island draws me into my practice, my practice draws me into the island.
This is what I’m sharing with you. Deep breaths. Wild nature. The healing hot springs. The hike to the top of the mountain. Sand under our feet. Delicious food. Moments of awe. My Yoga – not just postures and poses, but a practice that permeates my whole life, every breath, every instant.
Together we pause. We savour the present moment. We appreciate the vastness and the voidness of being. We share a few steps on our random walk through life, re-connecting what belongs together.
I look forward to connecting with you.

“THE EGG – the perfect place to recharge with it's laid-back atmosphere. Just one of the most impressive places I've ever done Yoga. The settings are absolutely amazing and done with love. I really loved the Yoga Classes and felt they pushed me. I can only highly recommend this place – even during COVID!"
