Come along on an exhilarating journey of yoga, fun and exploration while staying in one of Mykonos' finest resorts. This retreat is for anyone seeking freedom, community, and good music in their yoga practice, good vibes and good people all combined with a 5-star holiday experience and outdoor adventures. Every day will be specially designed to awaken your senses and recharge your body and mind. The silent luxury of the hotel along with a Greek inspired menu by our in-house chef and daily activities in nature and Mykonos culture, promise an island dream come true.
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 staff 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.
Jaimee offers fun, energizing, and challenging vinyasa power flow classes for students of all levels in an atmosphere that cultivates a deep sense of community. On this retreat, morning classes will be an invigorating and empowering vinyasa flow, inviting students to move in ways that feel good for them. We will flow through poses that lengthen, strengthen and tone muscles, while having some fun along the way, always tapping into the strength that we carry both in our bodies and mind. Evening classes will be a delicious blend of restorative/yin poses to sink deeper into the body and relax after a full day of island adventure. Additionally, there will be journaling and sharing thoughts around the topics of body positivity, inclusivity and self-love on select days. And last but not least, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy Jaimee’s signature Hip Hop Yoga experience accompanied by the most upbeat tunes!
* All practices are open to all levels from beginners to more advanced yogis.
Jaimee is an Atlanta-based certified yoga teacher and passionate advocate for living a life she loves. As a lover of travel, Jaimee believes movement and change sparks creativity and growth. ‘By practicing yoga in a mixture of places and spaces, we can play outside the lines, move away from what a yoga practice "should" look like, and allow ourselves to feel something new. This keeps our practice fresh, fun, creative, and always evolving’. Read more for Jaimee here.
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 with warm dishes and 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 blend of Greek style sharing plates and one fine-dining three course fish dinner just for Fykiada Retreats. His approach to Greek cuisine is modern, yet based on traditional recipes made with the best quality ingredients. Greek food experience taken to a whole new level!
