Other Speakers : Dr. Stacie Graham
Join an exclusive group of women to rejuvenate the spirit, rediscover your inner goddess, and rejoice in the beauty of being a woman. Dr. Lindsey Elmore and Dr. Stacie CC Graham, will lead this week-long retreat at the Sophia Suites in beautiful Santorini, Greece. The Centering Retreat includes yoga, meditation, aromatherapy, massage, and local activities as desired by the group. You will also have leisure time for exploring, resting and relaxing. Only a limited number of spaces are available.
Lindsey Elmore is joining forces with Stacie CC Graham of OYA. This UK company produces exclusive retreats offering holistic movement and mindfulness experiences to black women and women of color. This first joint retreat to Greece is an opportunity to support women on their journeys to renew their inner selves. They can’t wait to welcome you into an authentic Santorini Village with traditional Cycladic architecture.
Finikia Village is perched on hillsides that were once the agricultural heart of Santorini. This relaxing setting is a witness to rural heritage and famous for its aura of serenity. Surrounded by slopes of vineyards and stone threshing fields, the village is located in the northwestern part of Santorini Island. It is just a 15-minute walk from the center of Oia, where you can enjoy the world famous Santorinian sunset.
Each day will include sessions in Hatha, Vinyasa or Yin Yoga, pranayama (breathwork), aromatherapy, mindfulness practice and Yoga Nidra (sleep yoga). All sessions will be led by Lindsey and Stacie. The exact schedule will be sent to guests ahead of the retreat.
Sophia Boutique Hotel is a luxury hotel resting peacefully in Finikia upon the Cycladic village’s natural slopes. Its premises offer clear and lavish views over the deep blues of the Aegean Sea and a strong sense of locality. Walking through the narrow, twisted alleys of Finikia Village will let you experience how it feels to be a true local.
Sophia Boutique Hotel is the ideal serene location for the Centering Retreat. It is off the beaten track, but still just a heartbeat away from the famous Oia sunsets and the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
To allow for focused and individual support during each session, there are a limited number of rooms in this boutique hotel.
Finikia Village is located on the island of Santorini, Greece. Santorini port and airport are approximately 9 kilometers away and about a half-hour drive. Scheduled bus service is available on the main road 50 meters from the hotel. Parking is also available opposite the main road (100 meters away) for those preferring to rent a car or quad bike to explore as much of the island as possible.
Enjoy breakfast at the hotel every morning, including locally-sourced food of the highest quality. For seafood lovers, Ammoudi Bay is 2.5 kilometers away and a guaranteed location for Greek dishes and a glass of ouzo. There are opportunities to eat locally within the village as well as to venture into other parts of the island to delve into the Greek cuisine!
A limited amount of tickets are available. Be sure to book quickly, as this retreat will definitely sell out! Fill out the form below for more information and to book now.
