Paros, Greece

You are here:

One of Greece’s sparkling Mediterranean jewels, the island of Paros is home to our chosen retreat center, which offers guests an endless array of quiet places to meditate and reflect.

Located on scenic Filizi beach, Okreblue embraces both the sun and sea, allowing visiting yogis to breathe in the rhythms and sounds of nature within the center’s two indoor-outdoor yoga spaces.

In the tranquil atmosphere of the center and its surrounding nature, guests feel welcome and many return year after year describing Okreblue as “a home away from home”.

Accommodation

All participants will be housed in shared or private rooms. Nestled among the property’s aromatic cedar trees and thyme plants, all rooms feature 2 twin beds or one double bed, simple furnishings, natural light, and en-suite bathrooms; most have verandas and kitchenettes. The retreat center is a stone’s throw away from sandy Santa Maria beach.

Meals

Okreblue Retreat Center serves fresh, healthy vegan and vegetarian food — using abundant organic produce from their own organic farm – at the in-house Caretta Healthy Restaurant & Cafe. It is a wonderful venue to relax, enjoy a light meal or raw smoothie, or purchase organic Greek specialties, such as honey, tahini, and olive oil. If you have any dietary restrictions, please let us know on your training registration form. Caretta is open all day and offers free Wi-Fi.

You will have plenty of time to explore on your own or with your fellow yogis! Okreblue can assist with planning day trips and arranging transportation.
