Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand-and melting like a snowflake.” – Sr. Francis Bacon

Our retreat site is on the island of Santorini at a serene luxury boutique hotel, the Rocabella Santorini Resort – conveniently located near the village of Imerovigli at the top of the island with beautiful panoramic views– and in between two quintessential island towns – Oia and Fira. just 2.5 miles north of Fira and 4 miles south of Oia.
The island of Santorini is the remnant of a caldera (volcano) after one of the largest volcanic eruptions in recorded history (the Minoan eruption) that destroyed the earliest settlements on a formerly single island, and created the current geological caldera. This eruption happened just 3,600 years ago and very likely led to the collapse of the ancient Minoan civilization on the island of Crete through a gigantic tsunami, and this eruption also may be the source of the legend of Atlantis.
These days, Santorini is simply one the most wonderful vacation destinations in the world. We have the best views of the sunset and sea as the resort is situated atop the cliffs where you will see the giant central, lagoon that fills the caldera, surrounded by 980-foot-high cliffs on three sides. The backside of the island slopes downward to the Aegean Sea. On the opposite side of the lagoon, you will see a much smaller island called Therasia. Every night is a truly unforgettable experience watching the sunset.
This state of the art 5-star resort, situated on top of an impressive cliff, offering panoramic views of the Aegean Sea and a spectacular view over the volcano of Palia and Nea Kameni and the island of Thirassia.
The picturesque all white resort is unrivaled in its accommodations, views and totally blissed out location. Relax and enjoy wine and sunsets from every viewpoint of this resort, take a dip at one of the three pools, enjoy their incredible buffet Spa breakfasts each day, lunch at the resort’s poolside restaurant, unwind with a massage or spa treatment, visit local wineries, go to the nearby beaches, hike to the town of Fira, or take a short journey into Oia, the most famous Greek island village with charming row-houses in narrow cobblestone streets, blue domed churches, and sun-bathed verandas to enjoy plenty of tourist shops, taverns and cafes. The staff is there to accommodate your needs. This is a luxurious experience to pamper yourself that you will never forget.** each room is unique and different, so no two rooms will be the same. You can request 2 separate twin beds or 2 full size beds split level depending on availability. All rooms have a view of the caldera and Aegean Sea!

** Yoga will be practiced outside on one of the verandas overlooking the Aegean Sea. I have chosen the month of May because the weather is typically 68-75 degrees with evenings and morning in low 60s. I don’t have any control over the weather, so we have to go with the flow. But hey, we are in paradise!
* airfare to Thira, Greece
* daily lunch & 2 dinners
* TIP: Create a “Watch List” for airline deals, especially around the Holidays, such as Thanksgiving and Christmas. Last year Iceland Air sold RT tickets to Rome for $388 at Thanksgiving. Prices to London can be pretty good ($400-500 RT), so keep your eye for London flights too. (Hope we get that deal again!). London Gatwick and Munich typically have direct flights to Thira airport.
