Join Andrea Dyer, E RYT 500, in Greece for seven days of inquiry into the Greek myths and mortal selves – on and off our yoga mats. Greek mythology, like yoga philosophy, helps us understand our personal navigation of the world. Daily yoga practices and meditations will explore themes from both Greek mythology and yoga philosophy. There will also be plenty of opportunities to explore Greece’s beautiful backdrops for these classic tales.
This retreat meets you where you are in your yoga journey. Our daily meditation sessions will include guided meditations that draw on Andrea’s experience and help you dive deeper into your practice. Early morning yoga classes will offer Ashtanga Short Forms and an All Levels Flow – perfect to prepare you for a day of sightseeing, hiking, or simply soaking up the sun and sounds of this beautiful fishing village.
When we’re not busy exploring the surrounding areas and partaking in exciting excursions, we will have afternoon wind-down sessions with deep stretch and yin yoga.
Leave this retreat feeling epically recharged to take on life as usual!

This center epitomizes the Greek village experience, located peacefully on the sea in the port of the quaint fishing village of Ancient Epidavros. Unspoiled and away from mass tourism, this venue sits next to a bay of morning sunrises, afternoon sailboats lazily making their way to shore and evening magenta colored sunsets which can be viewed against the backdrop of the sleeping volcano of Methana. Here you can relax on a nearby beach, or excavate your way through ancient ruins or explore the quaint village and its colorful inhabitants. In addition, it provides a peaceful setting for yoga and meditation with culture and activities only a stone’s throw away.
The restaurant has an acclaimed reputation for the finest seaside and Greek vegetarian cuisine in the village. Each meal is made with fresh ingredients and is born from the Mediterranean traditions, which balance the body, mind, and soul. The authentic accommodations are simple, comfortable with a Mediterranean feel. Most rooms offer a view of the sea and a balcony, and gentle waves can be heard through the open windows.

“I attended Andrea’s first retreat to Costa Rica. The retreat was incredible. It flowed perfectly because it was very organized and flawlessly executed. We had daily yoga, amazing excursions, and much needed free time for R&R. I highly recommend experiencing one of Andrea’s retreats. I’m definitely in for Greece!!” ~Patti
“Both of my yoga retreat experiences to Costa Rica and to Italy with Andrea and True Nature have deepened my practice with quiet moments of reflection, heightened my insight of gratitude, provided me spirited travel experiences and new friends… not to mention delicious food and lovely accommodations! Each retreat has enhanced my spiritual and personal growth in ways I had not anticipated, yet in ways that I cherish.” ~Mary
“I was in a very dark place when I went on the first MBFY retreat with Andrea and some amazing women. I found my voice that week and am ever so grateful for that week of yoga, meditation, and friendship.” ~Linda
“Andrea is the absolute best! I have enjoyed her retreats in Costa Rica and Italy and I can’t wait until we travel to Greece! If you enjoy a laid-back retreat where you meet new people, this is the one for you.” ~Deirdra
“I’ve gone on five of Andrea’s retreats so far and have had the most wonderful experiences. She puts so much thought and consideration into these trips, which makes them not only fun but incredibly meaningful. They’re a perfect mixture of yoga, adventure, and relaxation. I can’t wait for the next one!” ~Sandy
