Yoga retreat Greece 2020




Koufonisi, Cyclades, Greek Islands May – June 2020.

We are very sad to inform you that, due to the current situation with the Corona virus, we have to postpone the Ashtanga Yoga Koufonissi retreat.

There was no alternative given the risks to health and the restrictions placed on travel for the foreseeable future. Our plan is to reschedule the retreat either for September 2020 or next Spring depending on availability.

If you would like to be informed when there is news on the retreat, feel free to fill in the registration form below. 


Come and join two dedicated Ashtanga Yogi’s and authorised teachers Nick Evans and Katia Garcia for this amazing retreat.

From Saturday 30th of May untill Saturday 13th of June you can practice with them for one or more weeks on the beautiful island Koufonisia in the Aegean See.

About the program

The retreat includes daily Mysore style Ashtanga Yoga and led classes as taught at KPJAYI, Mysore, India.

The yoga course offers 6 morning yoga classes and 5 after breakfast sessions.

The retreat is open to both beginners and advanced practitioners wishing to deepen their practice, and expand their direct experience of Yoga.

Because we will work with a small number of participants there will be plenty of personal attention for everyone.



The heart of this retreat will be the traditional morning Mysore practice with the opportunity to enter into the inner stillness and transformation Ashtanga yoga offers.
(no practice on Saturdays and moondays: Thursday 4th of June)

After Breakfast Session

Conference covering, vedic chanting, Yoga sutras, Yoga philosophy and applying Yoga vidya to daily life.

Daily sessions (5 times a week, Sunday-Thursday, in case of a moonday, sessions will be on an alternative day)


The afternoons can be spent relaxing and swimming at the beautiful beaches, cycling, diving, taking a boat tour or visiting the island or one of the other islands (e.g. Amargos) or just relaxing in one of the many common living areas at the villas getting to know the other guests.

There is the possibility to have a Thai Massage. This is not included in the price and can be arranged via Kavihasta Massage.
