What others say about our previous retreats

An unforgettable experience! Avra Yoga Retreat was for me a revelation about yoga as an exercise and philosophy. I entered this world through the best circumstances with a teacher who inspires, respects and loves what she does, and imparts her knowledge directly. A great environment, great yogis who became new friends. It was a three-day retreat full of gifts for the body and the soul! Thank you all so much and I can't wait to experience it again! - Vassiliki
Avra Yoga Retreat was truly an experience so fulfilling and at the same time so energetic that it exceeded my expectations. I will remember - for a long time - the morning and afternoon yoga next to the sea with the breeze cooling us! The beautiful conversations with the rest of the group, the contact with nature and the delicious and fresh food offered me the rest and rejuvenation I needed. Thank you Avra ​​Yoga! - Maria
My beloved girls I really wanted to thank you and congratulate you for an amazing two days retreat! It is a big deal to coordinate and create such a positive and beneficial activity by bringing 21 women together in the same place to offer them relaxation and give them the gift of wellness and self-love! I think we all got what we needed from this retreat and came back with a huge smile of bliss and gratitude! You must really be very happy and proud of what you have offered us! - Korina
