YOGA RETREATS

YOGA RETREATS IN CAVELAND – SANTORINI

MAY 23 – 26, 2019

SEPTEMBER 12 – 15, 2019

Yoga retreats in Santorini at beautiful Caveland have been happening now for 7 years. We bring together yoga practitioners from all-around the World. During the yoga retreat we practice on a secluded outdoor terrace overlooking the local village and the sea. Furthermore we learn about the island’s history, take stunning photos and taste local wines during a private guided tour. Finally your relaxation is completed by an hour-long massage of your choice. Of course a daily fresh vegetarian breakfast is served in the garden right after the morning practice. Above all your accommodation is in historical private caves in Caveland.

 

ABOUT CAVELAND: The history of Caveland is 300 years old. This complex was originally used as a winery. The grapes were collected from local vineyards that are surrounding it. Afterwards they were mashed in a well that is located at today’s reception. Finally the wine was stored in the caves that are now converted into cave rooms.

This place was later known as a tennis club and it was in the late seventies one of the first hotels in Santorini. It was refurbished and re-opened in 2011 as a boutique hostel. It offers a mixture of private and dorm-style accommodation. The property is a 15 000 sqm large with a big pool, numerous gardens and hidden corners. It is in a picturesque village of Karterados just next to Santorini’s capital Fira town. Karterados village lies on the main bus route connecting Fira with the south of the island. Therefor the location is ideal for those who want to explore the island and still be away from the crowds. Here is Caveland website.

ABOUT THE TEACHER:

I am Veronika and I have been living in Santorini for almost 10 years now. I am a yoga teacher and besides that I also manage beautiful Caveland where I help other teachers to hold their yoga retreats, too. So far I taught 13 retreats in Caveland. During my yoga classes we usually practice a slower paced hatha flow with accent to mindful alignment, breath and body awareness. Here is more information about my yoga journey:

  • I attended my first yoga class over 9 years ago during my vacation in Boracay Island in Philippines.
  • I started my regular practice at Yoga 109 (studio of Lorraine Aronson) in Shanghai (China) where I lived.
  • 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.
  • My kids who are now 4 and 6 inspired me to pursue a diploma in perinatal (pre and post natal yoga), baby yoga and toddler yoga with Birthright.
  • In 2016 I attended a yin yoga training with Josh Summers.
  • My interests and additional courses I attended are: Iyengar inspired hatha teacher course with Oona Giesen in Paros (2015), specialised therapeutic course for scoliosis and SI joint disfunction online through Yogamaze.
  • Recently I have been interested in arm balances and inversions and I am following a fantastic online course with Jason Crandell.
