The Goddess Retreat
Invoke your inner Goddess
Step out of the ordinary.
Go with the flow to return to a sense of unbounded joy and freedom.
Join Alesha for a 7 night 8 day journey of remembrance.
When you step out of your daily routine, and step onto the deck of a sailboat,
feel the wind in your hair, the sun on your skin and take a deep breath & soak it in.
We gather in a sisterhood of goddesses:
to explore the alchemy of ancient wisdom and weave it into our modern lives,
to nourish our souls with yoga, contemplation, and journaling
to open our hearts in ceremony (cacao, moon...)
to surrender to the spaciousness
and to transform.
Immerse yourself in the Elements
This journey will take place throughout the Cycladic Isles of Greece. We will sail to these remote islands as a flotilla, a group of small ships sailing together. We will hike, snorkel, paddleboard, dive deep into the culture, and take time to simply relax on the beaches and sailboats.
Best part…No sailing (or yoga) knowledge is required. Experienced and specialized staff take care of all the sailing logistics! Simply sit back and join your time.
Each day we will explore a new location as well as do yoga in a variety of breathtaking destinations.
Tantric Hatha Vinyasa will bring you into deep communion with your soul.
To invoke our inner goddess we will explore the ancient lands of the isles alongside goddess mythology.
Join in rituals of self care coupled with ceremony: Cacao, Full moon, and Goddess
Awaken a sense of freedom, of exploration and wonder.
It's a special sort of excitement and serenity that comes with being powered by nature.
Sit back and let the wind take you away!
Rugged, sun-drenched outcrops of rock, anchored in azure seas and liberally peppered with snow-white villages and blue-domed churches with stellar archaeological sites and dozens of postcard-worthy beaches, this is Greece. Throw in a blossoming food scene, some renowned party destinations and a good dose of sophistication, and you really do have the best of Greece’s ample charms. Among the 223 tiny islands, the most popular are Mykonos & Santorini. This journey will take you far from the heralds of tourism.

All activities are optional and you can choose to either participate or not. Sea activities included Stand Up Paddle Board Excursions, Snorkeling Expeditions and Subwing. Hikes are for beginner to intermediate level and again participation is optional.
The yoga practice is optional. Our philosophy is that we want your practice to go off the mat and become an immersive experience. Hence, yoga is taking place in a different scenic location every time. We provide yoga mats, blocks, and straps if you need to use them during your session.
All meals are prepared with natural and organic ingredients. We take you only to handpicked restaurants, that offer authentic Greek tastes and use the best components. Prior to your trip, we will send you a form, during which you will be invited to inform us about your dietary habits so for us to ensure that all your meals during the journey are aligned with them.
The daily itinerary is weather-dependent and subject to group dynamics. In the rare case of very strong winds (>26 knots) we might modify our itinerary. In the scenario of strong winds, the itinerary is either alternated so to sail the islands of the Saronic Gulf or it might be required to be moored in an island for more days than schedules. Whatever the case we guarantee that alternative plans will meet the requirements and quality of services as promised.
