Julie is the founder of Rogue Yogi, an alternative yoga and lifestyle platform for all body types, shapes, personalities and dietary preferences (Yes, omnivores unite!). After a rough childhood, becoming the guardian of her brothers at age 21 and surviving trauma, she connected with yoga on a deep level and found her calling. Leaving out the dogma, she believes that yoga is inclusive. With a focus on Music, Mindset and Movement, she dares you to be stronger in the mind, body and spirit with a commitment to your badassery.
Check-In is at 3pm. Check-Out is at 11:30am.
Let me know your flight info so I can coordinate your transportation to/from Caveland.
The local Greek dishes range from vegetarian to pescatarian. The retreat staff doesn't take any tips, but they love chocolate :)
Early October is best for having warm beaches still heated from September, though evenings will need a light sweater/jacket. We will see lows of 18°C and highs of 25°C until mid-October when it begins to get really cooled down. Because it's post-tourist season we get the dope climate without the insane crowds!
Honestly, it is WAY cheaper to book a multi-segmented flight than to fly direct:
1. First flight from your home to a general location in Europe
2. Second flight using a local European airline to Santorini (JTR), Greece.
PROTIP: Use Google Flights and type in "Europe" as the Destination. Look at the cheaper-priced flights to places like Spain, Italy, Germany, etc. There are usually crazy fire-sale deals as well.
Need to Arrive Earlier Because the Flights are so Damn Long?
Not to worry. I get it. You can book an additional night prior to the retreat. Just mention my name and this Rogue Yogi Retreat when booking!
Requirements Before You Board the Flight
