“And now, tell me and tell me true. Where have you been wandering, and in what countries have you travelled? Tell us of the peoples themselves, and of their cities—who were hostile, savage and uncivilized, and who, on the other hand, hospitable and humane?” The Odyssey
JOURNEY TO GREECE YOGA RETREAT
Journey with Jeni and Rocky to the lush island of Lefkada, Greece for the ultimate off-the-beaten-path yoga retreat.
Mimosa Retreat Center is a secluded and tranquil, Balinese-styled property on beautiful grounds with a panoramic view of the stunning, turquoise-colored Ionian Sea. You will start to relax with the very first breath you take!
Surrounded by ancient olive trees, Mimosa Retreat Center is nestled against the mountainside with breathtaking views from every inch of the property. The property features the main house with living room, dining room, TV room, and a fully-fitted kitchen as well as 5 separate guest villas with bedrooms, ensuite bathrooms and shared living rooms. Each bedroom has both A/C and a fan to keep guests comfortable in any temperature.
Linger over fresh and delicious chef-prepared vegetarian or pescatarian meals at the dining table overlooking the pool. Restore your sense of harmony and peace meditating in one of three outdoor pavilions with views of the many smaller islands dotting the sea.
Owning to the discovery of a prehistoric city and circular tombs from the same period, Lefkada is thought by some to have been the homeland of Odysseus, the wandering Greek hero from the epic tale of the Odyssey. Join us for our own epic exploration of secluded beaches, hidden coves, waterfalls and inspiring vistas. In addition to yoga, this active retreat features kayaking, sailing, snorkeling, stand-up paddle boarding and an island LandRover tour.

Designed by famed Italian architect Giovanni Bellagamba, this retreat center offers a blend of spacious rooms and inspiring views. The design features original custom-made Balinese doors, water-features, and furniture that offer the perfect combination of luxury and relaxation.
The yoga shala is situated away from the main communal areas and guest villas in a grassy area surrounded by olive trees and offers uninterrupted peace and quiet. The floor space is shaded and is a generous size allowing 20 mats to fit comfortably. The shala comes fully equipped with yoga mats, straps, blocks, and bolsters so that guests do not have to bring their own.
On the estate’s spacious and immaculately kept grounds, guests can enjoy seclusion in one of three meditation pavilions or can relax around the lagoon-style infinity pool. The Mimosa Retreat Center is walking distance to the lively town of Nydri where plenty of shops, bars, restaurants and water sports can be found. The nearest beach Perigiali is either a 15-minute walk or a 5 minute drive away.
