The Steps

Define Your Goals and Objectives

The first step in planning a successful retreat in Greece is to define your goals and objectives. What do you want to achieve from the retreat?

Having a clear idea of your goals will help you to determine the location, activities, and schedule of the retreat.

Choose Your Location

Greece has an abundance of beautiful locations for a retreat. From the serene beaches of Crete and majestic Greek island complexes like the Cyclades, the Sporades, or the Ionian islands, to the lush forests of Pelion and the impressive landscapes, mountains and beaches of the Pelloponese. Consider the type of environment you want for your retreat and research locations that match your criteria. You may also want to consider the accessibility of the location, the availability of accommodations, and the activities in the area. I can always work with you to find the best choice available, tailored to your specific needs.

Determine Your Budget

Budgeting is an essential aspect of planning a retreat in Greece. You’ll need to factor in the cost of transportation, accommodations, meals, activities, and any additional expenses. Consider the number of attendees and the duration of the retreat when determining your budget. You may also want to consider hiring a professional planner to help you stay within your budget.

Plan Your Activities

Activities are a crucial part of any retreat, and Greece has plenty of options to choose from. You can explore ancient ruins, practice yoga on the beach, hike through beautiful landscapes, or indulge in delicious Greek cuisine.

Find Accommodations

You may also want to consider hiring a local yoga instructor or meditation teacher to lead your sessions. We can also sort that out for you.
