This yoga + adventure (#yogadventure) active excursion will allow us to Seek the Sacred™ at Meteora – recognized since antiquity as a temporal space obviously touched by the divine. You will immediately feel the magic in this spiritual place, and we hope you will find a bit of your own divinity within as well – with yoga, meditation, self-discovery and adventure, in a very holistic and Hellenic way.
The idyllic, red-roofed town of Kastraki has one of the best backdrops imaginable: the famous Meteora monasteries, a UNESCO World Heritage Site surrounded by wildflower-filled countryside on mainland Greece. It’s hard to imagine a more impressive view than opening your blinds and seeing Byzantine buildings situated on pillars of rock stretching a thousand feet into the sky.
In between active activities, including optional yoga sessions, we will offer many & various excursions, such as tours, some private, to the Byzantine Monasteries built on top the runes, beginning in the 600s. When you see these monasteries, you may wonder how they were built without modern technology? It is perhaps the result of their enduring mystery what the ambition of human nature touched by the divine can accomplish.
As noted, we will be based in Kastraki, with wondrous views, and from which we will practice yoga, including Nidra & sound meditation. We will also discuss the crossroads of Hellenic & Hindu philosophy and history from a unique amphitheatre on-site, below the runes, surrounded by estate vineyards. We’ll be immersed in a pastoral paradise, perfect for photography &/or painting en plein aire, if that’s your passion as well.
Explore our accommodations in Meteora in more detail, or select your room and place a deposit to reserve your spot in our Holistic Hellenic Meteora Active Adventure today.
We offer lovely private or double-occupancy rooms with all amenities, en suite, and amazing views of the majestic runes. Mainland Greece is wonderful to explore anytime, but especially during September when the weather is sweetened with the aroma of the harvest, just coming into its full glory. The temperature is perfect and the land is blooming.
About our Meteora Active Adventure
My husband & I just came back from Greece, after spending a week on Spetses with Eleni and the rest of the group & we had an amazing time! The yoga was wonderful and the island gorgeous. We highly recommend Holistic Hellenic.
Eleni has created a wonderful concept and has followed through with a great product in the form of Holistic Hellenic Holdings.
Thanks for all of the Greek bits I would never have been introduced to if it wasn’t for your Evia retreat…
Dearest Eleni ~ Thank you for this suggestion, the space is really gorgeous! Great job Grazie
"I was delighted with the retreat on Evia on the second week. It was a more intimate venue as we were a small number of participants but it offered a real connection opportunity between the participants and the teachers and among the participants themselves. I appreciated the knowledge of the teachers [Lerrita & Tanis] and the way they taught as well as their incredible availability to the participants and their dedication to yoga. The setup [at Zarka Villas] was amazing! A dream!!!! Calm site, yet a big walk away from the beach - as Eleni said, if you rent a car it is much more easier and you can discover other gem beaches around! Also a nice walk to the village. I enjoyed the kindness and joyfulness of the staff and the people in the village. It was my first visit to Greece...I was conquered!”
