Your Meals

VEGAN AND DELICIOUS

To embrace a healthy, yogic lifestyle we promote a vegan diet consisting of pure, simple, natural foods which are easily digested and promote health. Three vegan meals will be provided daily. All our produce is seasonal, organic and locally sourced. Fertile mountain slopes and bountiful sunshine produce some of the tastiest sun ripened fruit and vegetables which when prepared with love result in mouth watering, nutritious and delicious cuisine. The meals will be served at our outdoor table or in our sheltered dining area, both overlooking the ocean. Fresh coffee, a variety of teas, juices and healthy snacks will be available at all times.Drinking water is always available. We also serve local organic vegan wines with Dinner, if you would like a glass. We are able to cater for gluten free and/or sugar free diets also. You will be asked to inform us of any food allergy or special dietary requirements you may have when booking via our online Health and Indemnity form.

What to bring

As you get ready we would like to offer some suggestions about what to bring. The number one suggestion is not to "over pack" because we want you to have as stress-free travel experience as possible. And the other key thing to know is that if you do forget something you will be able to get it in Greece.

  • Clothes that you can stretch and breathe in - but don't over-pack!

  • Jumpers & warm clothes - bring layers of clothing, as it will get cooler in the evenings and mornings. In April, May, September and October bring a sweater or jacket. It may also rain during these months.

  • Prescription and OTC medications.

  • Bathing suit, sunglasses and sunscreen.

  • Mosquito repellent (No DEET)

  • IPod or Musical instruments

  • Beach clothes, towel & flip flops (or any amphibious shoes)

  • Walking shoes

  • A notebook for when you feel inspired

  • A book / reading light to read at night in your bed or a head light as the lighting in the rooms is quite dim.

  • Cash: Get Euros before you leave. Make sure you have enough cash for your travels.

  • Alarm Clock to get up for your morning yoga practice

  • Plug adapters to charge your electronics.

  • Back up batteries

  • Camera with extra memory cards

  • Emergency phone numbers /contact numbers to report credit cards lost or stolen

  • Your yoga mat (let us know if you need to borrow one).

  • Any yoga props you wish to bring.

We highly recommend that you check an online weather report prior to your journey.

A typical day

WITH TIPI YOGA

  • Starts off with a pre-yoga snack of dried fruits, nuts, juices, coffee and or tea, of which we have many to choose from.

  • Morning outdoor Yoga if it's warm enough, surrounded by nature.

  • Then breakfast is served, consisting of delicious fruit salads and nuts, granola, organic jams and breads. Other breakfasts include vegan pancakes and mushrooms and avocado on toast.

  • Once you have filled your tummy, it is free time. We always have something going on which you can join us for, a run along the local beach, a jog through the countryside or local area.

  • You will hear the bell ring, calling you to our variety of nutritious delicious dishes, locally sourced or grown, seasonal and prepared with love. All our meals are family style around a big table.

  • After a lazy lunch comes a lazy afternoon of utter relaxation! You can have a therapeutic treatment, beach time, a swim, explore, find a hammock or hidden cove or have a siesta under an ancient Oak or Olive tree...time to just be.

  • The second yoga session is held in the late afternoon, as sun begins to set.

  • To end of the perfect day, a dinner under the stars with the sharing of stories, lots of laughter and a glass of wine if you wish.

  • Guided meditation under the stars.

  • Our evenings usually come to a close at 9.30pm. Tucked up with a book or star gazing...sleep follows soon.

You can participate in as many or as few of the activates as you would like. It’s your holiday, we want you to find a pace that is enjoyable for you.

Why a yoga retreat?

Taking the time to go on a retreat is an important practice in self-care, as retreats are a brilliant way to break free of old patterns, release limitations, let go of fear and step into the space of courage and new possibilities, inspiring your path forward. A retreat can invite change and renew inspiration in our lives. It gives you the gift of time, time to focus on yourself, your needs and what makes you happy, reconnecting you to your life’s purpose.

In this day and age of busy-ness and distraction, taking time out with oneself just to notice, to restore, and to hold oneself with gentleness and kindness is the remedy and counterbalance. The practice of mindfulness, or present moment awareness is, simply put, a gift to oneself and an opportunity to reconnect with what is important.

A retreat is often a trans formative experience that gives you time to restore, strengthen and heal. If you are feeling physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually stressed or burnt out you can pretty much guarantee that you will benefit from going on a yoga retreat. You can choose to transform anything in your life, and yoga retreats provide a great environment to support you as you do this, helping you align with who you really are.

Retreats allow you to go deeper because we leave behind the usual distractions and arrive into a space of self-reflection where we return 'home', to the very essence our true nature, which is freedom and pure joy. This can be understood by the yogic term, pratyahara.

This is also your holiday, so you have the time to meet new people, laugh, eat yummy home grown, sun ripened seasonal foods, go for long walks in nature, swim in the crystal blue sea or just sit peacefully in the sunshine and be.

"There is no need to be concerned about worries. Choose to just BE. Do not try to be quiet, do not make from 'being quiet' a chore to be done. Do not be concerned about being 'quiet', or unhappy about 'being happy'. Just be aware of your 'BE-ing' and remain aware - do not say 'yes, I am, and now what's next?' There is no 'next' in 'I am'. It is a state beyond time." Nisargadatta Maharaj
