WHAT TO EXPECT

In 2020 Chloe Kian joined the Nature & Soulbreeze Retreat. Watch her vlog to get a glimpse into this memorable week.

THE HOST

Sofia is a certified 500hr Yoga & Psychology Instructor since 2017. Her passion is soul realignment. She believes all humans are born with an assigned soul journey and that the life path we are called to follow sometimes “thickens” our skin and takes us off our personal journey (so much for meeting those expectations, ha!). A few years back, Sofia realised that for herself: she was climbing the corporate ladder, leading a life that seemed perfect but felt empty. It was yoga that helped her re-emerge and take a new approach in her life, this time as a yoga instructor. Since then, her mission is to empower people to find their way back to their soul journey and lead a creative life with purpose.

YOGA & SLOW LIVING

Sofia uses a blend of Vinyasa and Kundalini yoga to create an immediate connection with your Conscious Self. Right after every session you will feel your body light and relaxed and your inner flame active and heart-warming. The practice is inviting and suitable for all levels of yoga practitioners. Sofia has particular experience with beginner and intermediate level of practitioners.

  

 

The morning yoga practice is part of the daily soul diving ritual, along with healing talking circles, journaling and guided meditations. The pace of the ritual is designed to help you feel grounded and slow down your pace. The goal is to make you feel inner calmness, stillness and peace.

THE VILLAGE OF LIMENI

One of the quaintest sea-side settlements of Mani, the charming village of Limeni is where this retreat takes place. Limeni offers a winning combination of unparalleled natural beauty, unique location -surrounding a tiny tip of the Mediterranean yet overlooking the vastness of the sea- and pleasing aesthetics of traditional architecture. Mani, the wider region of Limeni, is yours to explore! For this reason, we have planned for you two amazing day trips! Enjoy a fascinating boat ride through the hidden lake of a cave, experience the serenity of Mani’s fishermen villages, feel the awe of the wild beauty of the cliffs, become friends with the tiny olive trees and go down the hiking trail to the second southernmost point of continental Europe.

 

 

Limeni holds a unique energy that amplifies the sense of relaxation and calmness. If you are at a place in your life where you need to disconnect from the hustle, go off the grid and experience serenity, Limeni is just the right place for you!

 

 

Sooner than later you’ll wish you could stay here forever…

 

➔ Limeni is easily accessible by plane through Kalamata.

ACCOMMODATION

Our traditional stone-built sanctuary is your haven for the 6 days of the retreat. The sanctuary quietly hangs on a hill, in a charming mix of nature and architecture that immediately makes you feel like home. Enjoy the view of the mountains over the bay from your balcony, fall asleep with the summer lullabies of cicadas, or walk down the picturesque cobble-stone streets until you reach the beach.

FOOD FOR THE SOUL

Our philosophy when it comes to food is fresh, local and ethical. Relish in classic greek summer flavours made with love and a creative vegan approach. Detoxifying for you, cruelty-free for our animal friends and sustainable for the environment.
