The path of Healing-Yoga and Hiking Retreat

The path of Healing-Yoga and Hiking Retreat
News
In the beautiful, picturesque mountain village of Abeliona, on the border between Arcadia and Messinia, surrounded by forests and springs, we will embark on our next Retreat.

In the homeland of Hermes and Pan, where the waterfalls of the nymph Neda and the temple of Epicurean Apollo reside, we will connect with the harmony of nature and the universe. We'll draw inspiration from the myths of ancient Greece, walk the paths of Healing and Eudaimonia, and immerse ourselves in the breathtaking beauty and unique energy of the area.
Our connection with nature
Our connection with nature will bring us closer to our true selves, aided by the wonderful yurt of Abeliona Retreat. Nestled on a tranquil slope at the highest point of the estate, the yurt boasts a stunning view. With its 80 sqm open space dedicated exclusively to yoga and meditation, this yurt, constructed from natural materials, provides an almost complete sense of isolation—ideal for yoga or meditation.
Fashion is what you’re offered four times a year by designers.
