A perfect retreat to let go of the stresses of daily life and immerse yourself in the beauty of nature. Whether you're seeking relaxation or adventure, there is something for everyone to leave feeling rejuvenated and excited.

Special offerings

A simple while powerful breathwork technique to release emotional blockages, soothe our nervous system, reclaim our sensuality, and revitalize our life force energy.

We'll journey down one of Kea's ancient paths, immersed in abundant olive tress and sounds of nature, to a historic Apollo temple located on a secluded bay.

A meditative practice that merges elements from Zen Buddhism and Western psychology to loosen our attachments to our narrative selves and reconnect to our intrinsic nature. 

A playground of movement, where our body is the vessel to explore and through which to express. Using imaginative guidance we are led into an embodied intuitive journey. Reigniting a sense of curiosity and presence through our sensations.
