Being creative in the kitchen is one of my hobbies. I love cooking, baking and of course also eating. I enjoy sharing photos of my food on my social media. Moreover for years we have been serving at the yoga holidays in Caveland home cooked breakfast with great selection of freshly baked pastries. Following requests from my followers and from my retreat guests I decided to share some of my favourite sweet recipes with you. I am not a professional baker, neither photographer and I am definitely not trying to compete with some well established bloggers and foodies of the Internet. I am just sharing here with you some of my favourite treats and I hope the recipes from my kitchen can be recreated with the same passion in your kitchen.

So welcome to the TREATS FROM RETREATS


I’m so happy that I decided to do yoga at Caveland with Veronika. It was a great experience practicing twice a day on a terrace overlooking the Aegean Sea. The classes were suitable for all levels and very mindful.

I highly recommend doing yoga with Veronika. She is an incredible instructor. It was a great way to start the day and a highlight of our vacation.

I booked a private early morning beach yoga lesson with Veronika and it was brilliant. Veronika was very friendly and approachable. She has a lovely teaching style and I felt totally energised after our session.

Veronika is an amazing, very experienced yoga instructor. My family had two classes on the pool deck in our villa. It was a very nice complement to our amazing stay in Santorini. Highly recommend !!


20150514Caveland0429I am Veronika and yoga is my passion. I live in Santorini in Greece. Here together with my husband we manage a beautiful property called Caveland. That is where I have my outdoor yoga terrace and teach my classes and retreats.

I attended my first yoga class 11 years ago in Boracay Island in the Philippines, I fell in love with the practice. I then started my regular practice at Yoga109 in Shanghai (China)– a great studio of Lorraine Aronson.

Early in 2012, I attended a yoga teacher training at The Mindful Academy of Kathy Ward in Spain and became a certified yoga teacher (RYT 200) and therapeutic yoga teacher. Therapeutic yoga is my hobby and every year I attend online yoga courses in this area. In 2013 I also completed yoga for kids training with Rainbow Kids Yoga. I am a mother of two kids and I love to see them having fun with yoga! I have also a diploma in perinatal yoga (pre and post natal yoga) and baby yoga and toddler yoga with Birthlight. In 2016 I attended a yin yoga training with Josh Summers, I find yin yoga a great complement to active hatha yoga.

I am a member of International Yoga Alliance and International Association of Yoga Therapists. What resonates within me during my practice are the words of an amazing yoga teacher Oona Giensen who I had a chance to take a short training with. As she says — “less is sometimes more”.

My yoga classes are inspired by hatha yoga and flow. They combine active assanas as well as breathing and centering exercises with attention to mindfulness and body awareness. Most importantly, it is your holiday–so take your time to unwind, be careless and smile!



20150514caveland078820150514caveland0669_1I teach my group classes in Caveland. The yoga terrace is outdoors, it is sheltered from the strong sun and has a great view of Fira town, Karterados village and Aegean sea. In the winter we practice inside one of our caves. Caveland is a former 19th century winery, since early 80ties it was used as a hotel. In 20111 we re-opened Caveland with my husband as boutique hostel with dorms and private caves, too.

Karterados is about 5 minutes drive/25 min walk from Fira town. Coming from Fira town, port or an airport, please ask the bus or a taxi driver to stop you at the fork at Multimedia market/ Zotos bakery. Leaving Fira town behind you there you take the downhill road on your left and continue all the way down for about 5-7 minutes. You will pass a police station, a windmill, 2 mini markets. Still continue all the way downhill until you see on the right side of the road Maistros Village. Walk a little further down until you see the Caveland sign on the left side of the road, just before Villa Pelekanos.
