'THE ESCAPE RETREAT'
If you need to press the pause button, you have landed in the right place!
09.09.23 - 14.09.23
With Veronica Santini.
Welcome to the Escape, a dreamy bubble to help you find refuge from the outer reality and discover that of your inner landscapes.
the Escape is not a shortcut out of the world we live in, rather it is a conscious choice to reconnect within and re-discover your inherent blissful and peaceful state.
Join these 5 nights & 6 days of yoga, meditation, beach, mountain hikes and delicious Mediterranean food, designed to help you escape the busy-ness of daily life and find refuge within.
In this retreat our days will be framed by two yoga practices fusing movement with breathwork and meditation: a morning vinyasa flow to awaken the body and a gentle evening practice (yin yoga, restorative or yoga Nidra) to prepare for the night.
Pelion Homes Retreat Centre. Agios Georgios Nilias is a beautiful and green traditional village on the slopes of the Western Pelion, 22 km from Volos, between the Pagasitikos Gulf and the Aegean Sea, at a distance of 20′-30 ‘from the nearest beaches and near the village of Milies.
Veronica Santini (RYT 500) has been teaching yoga internationally for about a decade. She is certified in Vinyasa yoga and Yin yoga and is specialised in Yoga for Female Health, Menopause Yoga and Pelvic Floor Yoga.
Her teaching style has been infused by amazing teachers (such as Janet Stone, Tiffany Cruishank, Shiva Rea, Leslie Howard and Petra Coveney) to whom she is very grateful.
Veronica firmly believes that each student needs to feel empowered to practice in a way that feels authentic and good to them. She is the guide for you to find your own ways to approach yoga. Her style, thoughtful and precise, always aims to be non-prescriptive, so that you can make each and every practice your own inner journey.

The practice - a message from Veronica:
In my yoga classes, all bodies and souls are welcome. I carefully design sequences that challenge the most experienced while allowing first time practitioners to understand the foundations of the practice and not be intimidated by it.
In this retreat our days will be framed by two yoga practices fusing movement with breath work and meditation: a morning vinyasa flow to awaken the body and a gentle evening practice (yin yoga, restorative or yoga Nidra) to prepare for the night. The practices will be inspired by the natural elements of Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether guiding you in a journey to connect to the natural world around you and find reflections of that within you.
