About this trip

“The Embodied Freedom" retreat is exactly what you need in order to reset yourself after a long period of stress and worry. This is a 7 day journey of empowered yoga, daily adventures and plenty of precious ‘me’ time by the beach or at the peaceful corners of Koufonisia island


Koufonisia is the perfect place to feel wild & free and appreciate space again. You can shape the day the way you want and walk the whole place within 3 hours. Our yoga program is also designed to gradually build up this body movement and mobility that reminds us how it feels to be free and having options. The option to live life the way you want to.

THE YOGA RESORT

Our yoga resort is a bliss for the heart & mind! 


Overlooking one of the most beautiful beaches of Koufonisia, it offers amazing views to the Aegean and great outdoor spaces with minimal design where you can either relax with your favourite book or spend time with like minded people. There are share, twin and single room options available. All rooms are simple and comfy with Cycladic aesthetics and bright details.


There is a dedicated yogashala which is a peaceful and protected space created with natural materials in between lavender and olive trees where you can truly find yourself at peace and rejoice. 

OUR TEACHER

Alessandra Oram is a very charismatic Vinyasa yoga teacher and one of the most upcoming names in the European yoga scene. She is a Navakarana Vinyasa teacher, a yoga studio owner in Barcelona and an Oysho yoga ambassador. Alessandra, balances life between yoga & interior design for the past 7 years but it was only when she met her Guru, Dario Calvaruso, and completed her Navakarana Yoga teacher training, that she fully committed herself to her yoga path as a teacher. 

* All practices are open to all levels from beginners to more advanced yogis.

TRUE FOOD

Our Koufonisia nutrition is catered by our private chef Esco Essence - one if the best vegan chefs in Greece.


Esco is a passionate vegan chef and a raw food artist. He uses the freshest daily produce from Koufonisia and the nearby islands to prepare each meal and there’re always gluten-free alternatives. He makes his own bread and nut based milks, as well as his famous granola, smoothies and herbal infusions. Each dinner is a big gathering around the table where we taste Esco’s specialty, finishing off the day with a small innocent desert for a sweet night’s sleep.

Great retreat! Very nice hotel, food and service.
Fully enjoyed the retreat! Elegant and cozy hotel in a beautiful location, wonderful hosts, delicious food. Could not have wished for more!
We had an incredible experience! Amazing accommodations, authentic cuisine, with an incredible instructor and facilitator! Five star review, through and through.
Anna and Eranthi are Greek goddesses incarnate! These beautiful souls were responsible for organizing our trans-formative week with Chelsey Korus. Anna made sure no detail was overlooked and Eranthi was the most patient den mother, both of them herding us like cats to make sure we all did what we went there to do. Thanks and 5 stars aren't enough to both of them for taking such good care of us.
I just returned from the retreat in Greece with Fykiada. The location was 5 star and the yoga practice was exceptional. I think the Fykiada team needs to update their site to say all is not included ( excursions) in their package. We were able to talk to them about it while there but it seemed very apparent the website does not match what they offer. Another correction should be that this is a remote location, not near a town, which was ok for some of us but the website painted a picture that we were closer to a village to experience island life. The cost should be lowered, in my opinion. The food was good but minimal and recycled. Not much variety and no options between meals. Only water was available for lunch and dinner, no espresso or quality coffee served at breakfast. I’ve been on a handful of lower cost European retreats and had many extras included and a variety of local cuisine choices provided. Otherwise the practice with Meredith and the house were perfect.
