      About this trip

      The Heart of Alchemy acknowledges that when we come together, we are more than just the sum of our parts. We are multi-dimensional and complete. Transformation occurs when we embrace all parts of ourselves. When we connect more fully with our authentic nature, we cultivate compassion and show up more honestly in the world. Compassion and truth is the Heart of Alchemy.


      Join Jen Yuhas and Madonna McManus for The Atrium Yoga Studio’s second edition of their all-inclusive yoga retreat on one of the most dreamy islands in Greece.


      The retreat includes:

      • 6 island days / 5 nights - accommodation on our beachfront yoga resort
      • 3 Greek-inspired daily meals 
      • Access to all program activities and yoga classes
      • Transportation to and from Kea port 

      Spots are limited to keep the experience intimate.  

      Our Island home

      We’re off to Kea Island, the most secret of the Cyclades, just one hour ferry from Athens. Kea Retreat is the first boutique hotel dedicated to yoga and meditation, a sanctuary of relaxation with a bohemian ambience. Set in a nature reserve facing the Aegean Sea, this haven of peace is the ideal place to celebrate nature, well-being and life. 


      The rooms blend harmoniously with the raw landscape of Kea and their large outdoor spaces and patios are ideal for lazy afternoon siestas and reading. 


      The zen atmosphere of the resort is completed with a covered outdoor yoga shala and a thai-massage room, both made with natural materials.

      Food Philosophy

      Our Kea nutrition is a carefully curated blend of island tastes and vegetarian diet catered by our food experts. The team uses the freshest daily produce from Kea and the nearby islands to bring each meal to life. 


      Our aim is to offer not only a yogic food experience to our retreaters but also a real taste of Greek culture and community that transcends every gathering and food sharing.

      Getting there

      Kea can be reached via boat from Athens. 


      We suggest that you fly directly to Athens airport. From there you take the a taxi to Lavrio Port (30 min) and a 1 hour ferry to Kea. From there, we’ll pick you up!


      We advise our retreaters to allow one day prior and after the retreat for their traveling. You may use viva.gr to check the ferries schedule and book your boat tickets online. 


      *Flights and boat tickets are not included in the retreat prices mentioned above.

      Fostering Community

      Jen and Madonna,  alongside One&Well have crafted a relaxing and renewing balanced program. They will guide you through a retreat focused on moving freely, feeling good and creating space to celebrate community. Each day will include two yoga practices, healthy and sustainable meals,  and time at leisure time to enjoy the serenity of Koufonisia island. 


      Whether you're looking for introspection and stillness or community and adventure we are here to support you.

      This was my first retreat with The Atrium Yoga Studio and One & Well and I genuinely couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Every detail was so thoughtfully curated, the food that Sofia prepared was absolutely phenomenal, and the overall feel of the retreat will be something I’ll never forget. I’m beyond grateful for Jen, Madonna, and Paula for putting together such a memorable 4 days!!

      I loved every minute of this retreat. You could tell so much thought went into every detail and there was still room for spontaneous, magical surprises. The food, the location, the yoga, the excursions…everything was wonderful. Paola, Jen, and Madonna are a dream team! I look forward to the next retreat. Thank you for everything.

      Another amazing retreat! Great experience, great people, and teachers. Food was delicious, fresh, and prepared with love. All the activities were perfectly organised in every detail. The place was beautiful and cosy. It has been an amazing week that helped to completely disconnect from work, the city life and connect with like-minded people and nature. The unexpected breathwork session has been a powerful and unique experience. Thank you for your effort to make all this happen. I am grateful to have met you. See you next year Paula!

      I have difficulties to find the right words to describe my trip because it has been MORE than amazing!! A wonderful yoga retreat in a magic location! Delicious healthy meals! I met fantastic people, beautiful souls. The size of the group made this retreat very special and intimate giving the opportunities to know and connect to each other. I landed to Mexico and didn't have to think about anything else for the whole duration of the retreat, everything was perfectly organized so I could enjoy and live at the fullest each moment! I will never forget this experience. Thanks Paula! Thanks Ximena!
