About this trip

This is the journey we seek to find ourselves ‘anew’ again. After a fragmented period of new norms and worries our need to feel present and re-define ourselves is almost imperative. Alessandra Oram, returns to the island she loved, to guide us through movement into a physical and mental transformation. This is a 6-day retreat featuring a dedicated program of Navakarana flows (Alessandra’s signature Vinyasa practice), daily adventures at the magical seascapes of Koufonisia and a well-curated menu of macrobiotic Greek diet. If you wish to experience how transformation feels like, then you’re at the right place. The retreat will be limited to a small group of people to provide a boutique experience.

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.


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. 


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.


Our Koufonisia nutrition is catered by our private chef who is an expert in vegan - vegetarian macrobiotic cuisine. His approach to food means the art of longevity and well-being, in a system that combines the ancient wisdom and tradition with the modern knowledge and needs. A Macrobiotic practice aims at being able to acknowledge our needs in relation to our environment, and make such choices so that we are in harmony with it and in good health.

Trip of a lifetime! Anna and Debbie were the most gracious and welcoming hosts I could have dreamed of. I was able to relax, recharge, explore Greece and strengthen my practice. I only wish they would offer retreats around the globe!

Absolutely amazing! Anna and Debbie are the perfect hosts. They make everyone feel like family and take excellent care of you- going above and beyond! The food and the accommodations were also lovely. Wish I could make the trip every year.

Where do I start? First, I want to say a massive thank you to Eranthi, Anna and Eleni for organising an amazing retreat in Koufonisi, it was beyond all my expectations! From the location, the villas to the delicious food prepared by Esco and of course the YOGA! The best thing was the opportunity to meet a great group of people to hang out with, we were all so different but similar in a way, like pieces of a puzzle put together! The energy was very positiveI and refreshing, I feel completely nourished and would totally repeat my experience with Fykiada :)

I had a great time! Thanks for the fantastic staff at Rocabella, Mysore and insightful workshops of Laruga and David, techniques in practice and for bringing beauty of Ashtanga. I loved the boat trip, the amazing lunch at the farm, the good company of the whole group, and of course Eranthi and Anna!! To repeat 💛🌞

I came back to Greece after my first retreat last year in Koufonisia with Fykiada, and it was even a better experience! Eranthi and Anna are truly amazing and make a great team, and their passion for what they do and for the Greek islands is really transmitted to all participants ​❤️ A big thank you to Laruga Glaser and David Fredriksson who taught us about ashtanga mysore with passion and dedication :) Last but not least, Rocabella Resort was also amazing and keen on making our holiday super enjoyable! I will surely be back :)
