Practice for life and soul coaching for self-awareness

Retreat Greece

Meditation, yoga and walking

In the heart of meditation

The path to your inner knowledge and your own destination

from Friday, June 3 to Wednesday, June 8, 2022 – fully booked

For the seventh year I’m offering a retreat in the tranquility and beauty of Epidavros, Greece. Our guesthouse is the beautiful Yialasi hotel.


Five days of relaxation, enjoyment, healthy and delicious food with a small group in a beautiful location by the sea with a full program focused on your own personal development.
Where there is love, there is joy

The heart is the seat of your innermost self, the place of love, compassion, joy and harmony. Your desire to experience, maintain and propagate this in your life and work through your words, actions and thoughts, serves as the starting point of this retreat.

Place of culture and healing

We are inspired by what is present in the area and the nature that surrounds us. We will meditate and walk, and experience the healing power of the famous Greek sanctuary of Asclepius, the God of medicine. We will also visit nature sites such as the healing spring of Asclepius and experience the silence and tranquility when we wander a mystical 2000-year-old pilgrim path, the Sacred Road, or when we ‘touch the sky’ according to the age-old saying on top of mount Moni Kalamiou.

Every day has its own theme and route and has a balanced rhythm of movement and rest in order to best reach the silence of your thoughts and the core of your heart. You will discover that everything is there to embrace new intentions and letting go of old patterns, to gain new inspiration and to tune into your own heart in daily life. You will experience more and more that there is an inner guidance with which you coincide to follow your own path in life.

Our accommodation: Yialasi

Our stay at Yialasi feels like a breath of fresh air. The natural environment, the sea and the Mediterranean climate, the light and the silence invite us to meditation, creativity, peace, healing and sharing experiences. The complex consists of spacious studios each with private bathroom, kitchenette and large private balcony with panoramic views of the sea and the surrounding mountains. In the large garden filled with flowers and an orchard with orange, lemon and olive trees is a lovely swimming pool, completely in harmony with the natural environment, and which offers a unique view of the town and port of Epidavros.

Retreat and coaching

We start the day with yoga and meditation in the garden of Yialasi, under the olive and orange trees. Following a plentiful breakfast, we set off. We will spend a large part of the mornings in silence.

In the afternoon, after lunch, there is time for rest and relaxation and working on individual assignments. You will incorporate a variety of meditation assignments, awareness exercises and exercises for spiritual development tailored to your personal growth.

You can work on the assignments in the privacy of your own room or balcony, in the shade of the trees in the garden or on a sun bed by the pool. In the afternoon the program continues with meditation and sharing our experiences of the day. We will end each day with a delicious Greek dinner and a short evening meditation.

Due to the multifaceted combination of meditation, yoga, walking, silence, meditative and awareness assignments tailored to everyone’s personal growth and development, this Greece retreat is an inner experience for a ‘life changing’ journey on your way to your own destination.
