AWAKE RETREAT

CHELSEY KORUS | 2 -7 OCT | mykonos

 

THE EXPERIENCE

Boost your confidence, renew your senses, and feel captivated by your life! Chelsey Korus invites you to dig deeper into the concepts of Soul (connection to self), Spirit (connection to something bigger than self), and Environment (connection to others and to nature). She will teach you how these three pillars work together to help you be AWAKE, to have eyes to see your “now".

This journey of awakening the senses couldn't have had a better place to happen than our Mykonos boutique resort where its ethereal nature invites you to unwind and let yourself simply be. A fierce white purity and the natural light defines everything in those 6 days of island wonder and self-revelation. From  a pool almost indistinguishable from the blue horizon to a Greek inspired menu where local ingredients turn into artful dishes and mythical sea adventures, every single detail is there to make you feel AWAKE.


OUR LUXURY YOGA resort

Our Mykonos resort it’s the absolute ‘let go’ place awarded for excellence for four consecutive times by TripAdvisor. From the very moment you set foot on the hotel, the warmth of the stuff and the simplicity of the design invite you to leave everything behind and just let yourself be…

The excellent central location of the resort offers full autonomy to its guests as it’s just a 10min walk away from a beautiful sandy beach and 15min ride from Mykonos town. Click for more images.


THE TEACHER

Chelsey Korus is one of yoga’s foremost international teachers and thinkers. Her teaching and movement philosophy comes from her passion for life and the inspiration she finds from nature. She approaches life through the lens of constant learning and loves to share the wisdom she’s gathered along her journey in hopes of helping others become AWAKE; to be aware and present in their own lives.

Invigorating morning yoga flows and meditation, tailored afternoon workshops or partner work, journal prompts that will get you out into nature, along with a vision-board opportunity…the activities on this retreat are designed to help you establish practices you can take home and easily implement into your daily life. In addition to movement, you will receive profound nourishment for both body and mind through soul-reviving excursions in Mother Earth, amazing food, and plenty of opportunities for rest and relaxation. Return home feeling whole and AWAKE.

a GOURMET TASTE OF GREECE

We’ve created a bespoke food experience with the resort’s team to deliver the best of Greek nature at your plate in the most creative way. The hotel’s Award Winning breakfast is a pandemonium of island goodness served in the most sophisticated set up. A special vegetarian / vegan section has been created specifically for our retreats where you can enjoy a delicious variety of non-dairy and gluten free options. On top of that, there’s an amazing à la carte menu of all types of eggs you’ve ever dreamt of.

The highlight of this culinary journey is a tailor-made dinner experience. The chef is one of the most acclaimed Greek chefs and has created a special three course menu just for Fykiada Retreats. His approach to Greek cuisine is modern, yet based on traditional recipes and the best quality ingredients. Fine dining has been taken to another level!
