“Spice Up Your Life” Yoga Retreat in Greece

October 4-9, 2022

Mykonos, Greece

THE EXPERIENCE

From Miami to LA to Mykonos! Rina Jakubowicz is an international bilingual yoga teacher, Reiki practitioner, motivational speaker, and author. Rina is known for her vibrant and uplifting approach to yoga and she will be leading a 5-star retreat on the mesmerizing island of Mykonos for the first time. Expect a ‘spiced up’ yoga practice with floor to ceiling sea-views paired up with a nutritious Greek-inspired menu, and a good dose of Myconian culture & nature curated by your Greek hosts.

Rina will guide you through a reflective experience of external and internal observation to prepare you for her own style of invigorating Vinyasa Flow. This retreat will leave you feeling more confident and inspired to keep practicing long after you return home. The group’s number will be kept relatively small so that students can enjoy a more tailored guiding by Rina.

This is your opportunity to practice with a world class teacher and enjoy the subtle luxuries of our retreat while tuning into the eternal light of Cyclades.

“Tune into your island spirit under Rina’s guidance.”

OUR LUXURY YOGA RESORT

Our 5* Mykonos resort is a quiet luxury gem (part of the Design Hotels) firmly rooted in the spirit and style of its setting. The essence of Cycladic architecture and self-care transcends the entire place, from its pure white forms to the warm wooden details and its long sea-gazing 360 pool.

This is 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.

All high risk areas will be daily cleaned and disinfected with a professional steam machine, as suggested by the guidelines.

YOGA WITH RINA

Rina Jakubowicz, founder of Rina Yoga and Super Yogis, has been teaching yoga in English and Spanish for over 20 years and has been a featured presenter at Wanderlust Festivals, Yoga Journal Conferences, Kripalu Center, Himalayan Institute, Omega Institute, Yogaville, Sedona Yoga Festival, Telluride Yoga Festival and Mammoth Yoga Festival. Rina is also the best selling author of “The Yoga Mind: 52 Essential Principles of Yoga Philosophy to Deepen Your Practice”.

Rina’s classes, while technically traditional, are also fun-loving and non-competitive with Sun Salutations, standing postures, leg balancing, arm balancing, back bends, hip-openers and all-level inversions. Combining breath with movement, we will focus on developing the core from within; weaving philosophy and the physical together to ground ourselves in higher ideals and deeper into our bodies. You will learn to observe and better serve yourself and others without feeling depleted. Implementing these techniques you will feel uplifted, relaxed, ignited & ready to live your fullest life right now! Because after all, one’s fullest life is when one is serving.

* All practices are open to all levels from beginners to more advanced yogis.

COVID-19 | Yoga & Safety: The yoga takes place in an outdoor covered yoga shala which is sunlight & easily aired. Each guest will be provided with a Manduka yoga mat which they will keep for the duration of the retreat and be responsible for its cleaning.

“Feel uplifted, ignited & ready to live your fullest life right now”

A FINE 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 way.

A special vegetarian / vegan a la carte brunch has been created specifically for our retreats where you can enjoy a delicious variety of non-dairy and gluten free options. The highlight of this culinary journey is a tailor-made dinner experience. The chef has created a special blend of Greek-style sharing plates just for Fykiada Retreats. His approach to Greek cuisine is modern, yet based on traditional recipes made with the best quality ingredients.
