yoga stability RETREAT | kythnos
meredith cameron | 14 - 19 september 2019
Have you ever dreamt of floating in the open sea? The wind is gently stroking your face, the sun warming your toes. You are light as feather and happy as a clam. This retreat is your dream. Waking up to the view of an endless blue horizon that touches the sea, sets the tone for 6 full island days. Our villa is almost above the water. Slow morning flows are synced to the sound of the waves as you open up to your first salutation. Afternoons are spent by the nearby beach, a tiny hidden bay with transparent waters where you can swim like nobody's watching. Sunsets find you by the infinity pool reading your book while evenings are dedicated to big gatherings around the table feasting tastes and tales of Greece! A beach day with sea-kayaks, a local dinner in town and other island surprises promise a journey worth taking!
LUXURY VILLA BY THE SEA
A perfectly white villa lies an inch above the Aegean Sea. Awarded for its Modern Cycladic Architecture, our Kythnos villa combines minimalism and island elements in an exceptional way. Its private beach and a seawater infinity pool just above the sea level, give a serene essence of barefoot luxury which is hard to find. Click for more images
Meredith Cameron is an international yoga teacher and the founder of Yoga Stability®; an awakening of familiar yoga poses by cultivating awareness around personal habits and bone structure so that one can ignite their organs and really up the ante on overall health and life.

Classes will be a blend of workshop/learning, slow flow, meditation and conversation around life and Chinese Medicine. Within these practices we learn tactics that keep us safe on the yoga mat and also wake us up to our habits and patterns, so that we can make the changes we need to get unstuck. Freedom and leverage are cultivated through every single practice and conversation.
The yoga classes take place in one of the several outdoor spaces depending on the time of the day. Most of the classes take place in a protected from the wind space which unfolds around an old olive tree. The ground level has direct view to the sea and is also perfect for vinyasa flows and other yoga styles.
* All practices are open to all levels from beginners to more advanced yogis.

Our menu is a balanced selection of juicy salads, Greek herbal blends, tasty smoothies, healthy snacks, tones of fruits, and delicious homemade meals.
