THE ESOTERIC JOURNEY
In the words of our guests: “This is not just a yoga retreat!”. This is a spiritual journey of deep transformation. You will cry, you will scream, you will be inspired, you will laugh, you will meet the deepest, most vulnerable layers of your psyche in mystical ways and you will be reborn in a community of like-hearted humans. During this journey, your Spirit, Soul and Higher Self will come together to gently make you aware of your psychic depths, your wounds and power. These are your inner energy portals to a life of inner peace.
Sofia, your host and spiritual guide, will hold space for you to go deeper by activating parts of your psyche you hadn’t accessed before, and will help you process and integrate them. Anything that is not aligned with your higher purpose will be released. By the time you return home, you will know how to access your inner source of loving power and will be ready to explore your personal journey with a robust sense of self worth, compassion and purpose.

Here’s all the information you will need to travel to Antiparos.
Sofia is a 500hr certified Yoga & Psychology Instructor (since 2017). She guides your body to progressively open up and find comfort, depth & flexibility. Her practice is suitable for all levels of yoga practitioners.
It is through the body that the spirit manifests into the world. For that reason, Sofia infuses Vinyasa and Kundalini Yoga elements to create an immediate connection with your Higher Self. During each retreat she masterfully takes her guests on spiritual journeys of deep healing and inner transformation.
Rest assured that the impact of this experience will last long after the retreat ends.
DETAILS THAT MATTER
The retreat takes place on the charming island of Antiparos, with its whitewashed buildings, blue-domed chapels and fuchsia bougainvillea trees.
Together, we will explore the Cave of Antiparos, swim at mesmerising beaches, eat at local taverns and stroll around the narrow streets of Chora and the Kastro.
Antiparos holds a unique soft energy that amplifies the sense of gentleness, self love, peace and inner healing. If that’s what you are looking for, Antiparos is just the right place for you!
Sooner than later you’ll wish you could stay here forever…

I never felt so comfortable in my skin as I did during this week and in this group. I'm very thankful for our group and especially for Sofia and her amazing gift. Her calm, compassionate and fun energy turned this retreat into an unforgettable experience that I will cherish forever.
I grew a lot this week and take away a lot of it. So thank you, Sofia! Please continue to share your beautiful energy and your gift. I definitely will come back.
I loved every minute of the yoga, the meditations, the cat-time, the beautiful sunsets & moon rises, the dinners but also the "sacred silence" in our amazing group.
I would never have thought to connect this much to strangers or have access to see a glimpse of their soul ♡
It was such a special week, I hold the memories dearly my heart.
Sofia, you are an amazing guide and host.
Thank you for holding space for us.
Merci de tout cœur ♡
Sometimes doing something for the second time is not as exciting or beautiful as the first time. This was not the case with the Yoga Retreat, Sofia or Antiparos.
I enjoyed every moment of it: the meditations, the yoga sessions, the healing circles.
Sofia is gifted in not only connecting a group of diverse people in a short time but also to connect you with your personal topics in a decent way,
Thanks a lot and I cross my fingers to be able to return.
Big hug ♡
I would encourage more men to participate in this retreat as the benefits to my life are far too many to list. Sofia and Kim are truly gifted in helping people to relax and open up and integrate real changes into their lives.
I walk away from this retreat a changed person with real and practical tools to enhance my life experience.
It will not be my last retreat experience and I'll strongly encourage all my friends and family to join!
Sofia is a truly amazing and talented person and without doubt, she was born to do this.
Thanks for everything!
I highly recommend this retreat to people who don't know where to start with their inner work or self love practices. Sofia gave us the guidance and the tools to really dig deep within ourselves and start exploring our inner world and emotions.
I was moved several times by the bravery of other participants when we shared our feelings and experience. At the end of the retreat we built a compassionate and supporting community and even learnt from each other. But this would not have been possible without Sofia's guidance.
Forever grateful to you, Sofia, for your open heart, open mind and deep listening.
Thankful for all your and Kim's work to make me feel welcomed, understood and heard.
Keep up this fire within you!
I enjoyed every minute of the retreat, every meditation, every yoga practice, every sunset, every moon rise, every dinner.
Although we shared our deepest emotions & thoughts I felt comfortable all the time.
Sofia guided us through the exercises with her calm voice and loveable manner.
Thank you so much! you are such a talented person with a big, big heart!
I feel so incredibly grateful for this beautiful place, these lovely people I met, taking time to reflect, reconnect & recharge, and all the positive energy.
Thanks for everything!
Big hug and lots of love!

Si je devais résumer en 3 mots cette semaine de yoga, voici ce que je dirais: merci, paix, amour.
Je te remercie d'avoir apporté tant de réponses à mes questions sur la vie. Grâce à ta "inner Athena", je ferai plus attention aux signes de l'univers maintenant.
Antiparos restera ma "safe place", alors merci encore.
The whole experience at the Soulbreeze retreat was more than I could have ever imagined! It was exceptional in many ways, from the knowledgeable and truly gifted host Sofia, the fantastic accommodations, to all fabulous excursions and delicious vegan cuisine.
Sofia has significant organisational skills, is detail oriented and takes great care of everything, so that a small community of like-minded people can enjoy »the ride».
Each day of the retreat felt amazing and at each moment, when you thought it cannot get any better, it did!
In addition, Sofia is an amazing yoga teacher who created a space for us to connect to this experience and to each other at the retreat in our own way.
I had an amazing and unforgettable time with wonderful people.
I highly recommend the Soulbreeze retreat to anyone as it is a magical experience.
Thank you Sofia and best wishes for all upcoming retreats ♡
If you’re looking for a Yoga Retreat to do a bit of Yoga and that’s it - then this is not for you. It’s more than just Yoga. We spent much more time focusing on meditation, pranayama and inner work. We had journaling sessions, healing circles, island excursions and amazing dinners.
If you looking for an open place to explore your inner self, share your deepest emotions, fears and dreams in a safe environment, with enough space to laugh and have fun; then this is the place to go.
Sofia gives you the comfort and support you need with her wonderful energy and openness. All her advice is amazingly thoughtful and the aftercare and support is something really special.
I highly recommend this or any other Retreat with Soulbreeze.
The fact that it included not only yoga but also breathwork, meditation, and healing circles exercises was a great way to open up, reconnect with myself, connect with the others and create a benevolent atmosphere during the whole retreat. The program was well organised, the location was dreamy, and the vegan food was delicious.
Sofia is kind, enthusiastic, professional and a very good yoga teacher who can adapt to every level. You can tell she is passionate about her work by the amount of love and effort she puts in everything she does. You can feel it in all the details she thought about to make this retreat unforgettable and high quality.
After this week, I feel more at peace, with a refreshed mind, and more in tuned with my body and emotions than before. I can only recommend the Soulbreeze retreats, you will for sure have a wonderful experience.
Thank you again for everything Sofia!
I wish you a lot of success for your upcoming retreats 😊
She takes care of every detail and she makes you feel comfortable, a very important qualities to allow healing to happen.
Her retreats are in the most magical places in Antiparos, creating that magical experience with her.
Thank you for your opening such a space.
Big big hug ✨
