Ann Blackburn

I have been a student of yoga for 35 years, have had the honor of teaching for 12 years and been a Certified Yoga Therapist for 6 years. I weave yoga, somatics, breath science, and energy work through all my classes, private sessions, and retreats to support people in calming their nervous system and connecting with their inner strength. Students learn practices to find balance in every area of their lives. I love leading retreats and creating life changing experiences where people gain more than they could imagine. I am blessed to combine my love of travel, people, and yoga.

Dan Blackburn

As a lifelong learner of health and wellness, I became a massage therapist over 30 years ago with a focus on chronic and acute pain. After a career of Executive Leadership, I’ve returned to my roots becoming a certified yoga therapist, yoga teacher and coach. I’m blessed to share my love of leadership, coaching and the mind-body connection in all areas of life. Private sessions, group classes, writing, travel, coaching and facilitating relationship-building projects with organizations bring me great joy. I love supporting people’s growth through an amazing retreat experience that brings out the best in each of us.

Testimonials:

“When I went on the Live Your Vibrant & Authentic Life retreat last year, I never imagined how transformative it would be. I’ve gone on other retreats and have taken plenty of self-development courses online and in person, but none that had a spark like your retreat. The effect that it has had on myself and my family continues. We’ve taken trips, seen old friends, spent more time unplugged and connecting with others, and being more intentional overall.”  – Autumn

Many participants enjoy arriving in Athens a day early and staying a day later in order to have more ferry options and travel flexibility. Once the retreat is confirmed, you will receive complete information about the airports and the ferry options that will bring you to your destination.

Travel Insurance

We cannot emphasize more the importance of travel insurance. As we all know, especially as travelers, “life happens.” Whether it’s family, work, mother nature, or a change of heart, it is important to be prepared in case you need to unexpectedly change your travel plans. Often for less than $150, you can purchase a travel insurance policy and be protected in the event that you need to make a change or need to be covered financially prior to or during your trip. 

We have partnered with two insurance companies: Trawick International and CSA Travel Insurance (available for U.S. Residents only).
