About this trip

Located on an almost private island in Greece you will be immersed in various yoga and self awareness practices that will elevate you towards the highest version of yourself.


The island of Koufonisia has a population of approximately 400, and is only 2.5 miles wide. Koufonisia means “the hollow islands” in Greek, which describes the stunning coastline that’s been shaped by wind and waves. 


We will be hosted at the elegant and exquisite Koufonisia Villas which is a collection of several villas with a private onsite yoga shala and hot tub on the east end of the island.


Our retreat dates are September 12 – 19, 2020.


Each morning we will practice yoga in Sangha as a way to center ourselves and remind ourselves of who we are and what our life’s purpose is. During our time together we will ground into foundational Baptiste Power Yoga practices, uplift our consciousness through Kundalini Yoga kriyas, and explore our expansive awareness through various meditative techniques. 


After physical yoga practice, you will have the afternoons to explore the nearby town, venture to the water caves, go on long walks, swim in the ocean or stand up paddle-board. If you want a quiet day after class, you can relax by the onsite hot tub with a book or take a nap in one of the outdoor lounge areas.


Most evenings we will close out with a restorative yoga class to rest your mind, body, and soul. These classes may consist of yin yoga, yoga nidra, kundalini yoga, yoga philosophy or sessions on how to incorporate essential oils into your daily routine to increase vitality, create peaceful sleep and promote focus.

Your Souls Investment

Your soul’s investment includes seven nights accommodations and three meals a day at the Koufonisia resort, plus the yoga program in which all sessions are optional. This week is designed for you to listen to your intuition, follow your gut and ask your heart which classes would suit you best to attend. Nothing is mandatory, giving you the freedom to guide yourself.


Relax and recharge on the remarkable Koufonissi Island with new friends that start to feel like family. You deserve this.

How do I get to Koufonissi Island?

Daily SeaJets ferries run from Santorini, Mykonos and Naxos to Koufonissi Island. There is only one ferry per day from each location.


If you are flying from the USA, there are many major airlines into Athens. However, our suggestion is to fly into a Major European Country, spend a day exploring and take a small jumper flight to explore Santorini, Mykonos or Naxos for a few days before taking the Ferry to Koufonissi. 


Here are some sample itineraries: 


1: Fly into Athens and take small jumper flight to to Naxos Island, hang for a few days and then catch the 12:35 sea jet boat (35 minutes) to Koufonissi on the day of retreat. 


2. Fly into Mykonos from a major European airport. Hang for a few days and then catch the 11:45 ferry (1.5 hours). 


3: Fly directly into Santorini from a major European Country. Explore Santorini for a few days and then take the Thira, Santorini ferry at 12:15 (2.5 hours) to Koufonissi.


ARRIVE TO THE FERRY 2 HOURS BEFORE DEPARTURE TIME. They load way early and if you miss the Ferry you will have to wait a day or several days till the next one. 


If you are flying from the East Coast, USA. There are several airlines that fly direct into Athens. A great option is to fly from the east to Athens and then take a short flight to either Naxos, Mykonos or Santorini for a few days before the retreat. 


If you are coming from the West Coast or Mid USA some airlines do directs into Paris, Rome, London or Amsterdam depending on your departure location. Then you could take a flight to Naxos, Mykonos or Santorini if offered. 


Major European Airports to consider when searching for flights: 

Paris, Amsterdam, Rome, London, Barcelona, Naples, Venice. 


If you come to Koufonissi early there are several local hotel and airbnb options. It is a small island so you will get plenty of time to explore all of it during our time together. 


YOU CAN BOOK YOUR DEPARTURE FERRY OUT ANYTIME ON SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 19TH, 2020. There will be shuttles to the ferry port all day to accommodate your specific departure time.
