Stone & Light 5-Day Yoga Retreat | 13 – 18 November 2020

Mani is a place of legends. It is the land where Paris and Helen of Troy chose to take refuge after they fled Menelaos’court. It is also the area where local pirates used as a lair for centuries. The Mani peninsula ends up at Tainaro, the most southern part of continental Europe.

There, at the edge of Europe, we designed a yoga retreat like none other. 

Petra & Fos Boutique Hotel & Spa philosophy is based on a duality of nature: Stone representing eternity, endurance, stability & strength and Light, representing the life-giving Sun.

With these in mind, we designed a Yoga Flow that can bring you in balance with the two elements: Stone &Light.

Join us to experience the Grounding and the Inner Calm. It is this strength that allows us to stay mentally, emotionally and physically steady, even in difficult times. In yoga, this strength is rooted in mindfulness, breathing and physical stability.

Our flow: 

a series of five grounding morning yoga classes (Iyengar/vinyasa) to help you feel rooted in your sense of center, while you cultivate spaciousness within.

Calm afternoon yoga classes, in order to feel yourself expanding toward the sun while drawing this energy to your center.

All classes end with basic pranayama techniques and meditation to ensure that you absorb all the benefits of your practice.

A few words on our instructors:

I’m Maria Hrisoheraki and I would love to be part of your yoga journey. Since my teenhood, I have been exploring some of the most famous systems in yoga: Sivananda, Satyananda, Yoga Works.

In 2002 I came across Iyengar yoga and was hooked immediately.​My first class made me feel like a total beginner, stiff and sore. But today I am a certified Iyengar yoga teacher, Intermediate Junior 3.

I keep attending Iyengar yoga teacher training courses, to fulfill my constant need for better and deeper understanding in yoga, and I frequently attend Iyengar yoga seminars with world-acclaimed teachers like Penny Chaplin, Eyal Shifroni, and Carrie Owerko. Also, I visit the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Pune, India, for intensive post-diploma training.

 Apart from teaching and learning, I have the opportunity to contact the world by publishing articles about yoga in the Greek version of “Huffington Post” and the leading Free Press health magazine, “Natura NRG”.

Mia Evgeniadis

My name is Mia Evgeniadis and I am a certified US RYT 200h yoga instructor. 

I have been an athlete all my life, having a wider approach to what we call functional training. I am a pole athlete, functional trainer and a Hatha flow yoga instructor. 

I am a firm believer of multiple courses of training, aiming at offering our body and mind with a variety of options in order to evolve under different circumstances. 

I joined the yoga journey as a student three years ago and I have been practicing ever since. I teach Hatha Vinyasa with a dynamic flow.  

Being always a student and a teacher to small organic groups, I wish to pass that amazing knowledge of the yoga practice and bond with my students. 

Why is the Stone & Light Yoga Retreat an extraordinary experience?

Our daily schedule will include an ancient and sacred Greek activity: 

The olive grove experience

There is no better way to absorb the energy of the earth than to delve into activities related to what the earth provides us. 

November is the month of olive gathering. In collaboration with the Petra & Fos Boutique Hotel & Spa, we have organized a unique experience for you: 

Our daily activity will be related to this ancient human mystic connection to the tree of wisdom: we will visit olive groves, perform meditative walks, gather olives, perform meditative sessions under these precious trees and open ourselves up to the energy of the grove.
