PILATES EMBRACE – Greece


Fall in Love…

…with Paros, just like we did, on our first visit. Being nature and outdoor lovers, we found the perfect retreat location that gives you that sense of complete freedom right by the beach. We secretly call this retreat our ‘feel good’ retreat, as we invite you on this exploration of your body and mind. You will be in the hands of three wonderful teachers who have found their calling in working on a deep level.

The Geek island dream…

Paros is one of the Cyclades most traditional islands. Situated in the Aegean Sea and small enough to be explored in a day, it is best known for its beaches and traditional villages. Think with whitewashed sugar houses, paved streets and blue-domed churches – the perfect place for a quintessential Greek retreat.

Our venue and home for the week is am impeccably run retreat center located on a quiet beach. The yoga shala is a peaceful space with the sunlight filtering through its reed curtains…oh, how much we are already looking forward to being there!

Talking about being there, here is some logistical and practical information: You can get to Paros by either boat or plane. On departure and arriving days we will provide a free pick up from either location.


Getting there

By plane:
Aegean Air flies from Athens to Paros. Depending on the season you could also catch a  flight to Mykonos island and from there its a 45-minute boat ride to Paros.

By boat from Athens: 
There are two options: Pireaus port and Rafina port.

1) Rafina port is closer to the airport and you can get there either by taxi or bus.
By bus will take you about 45 minutes and it costs 3 Euros.
By taxi it will take you less time but more money.

2) Piraeus port is further from airport than Rafina, and you can get there by bus, metro or taxi. The metro and bus are both very convenient because they will leave you just a few meters from where you get the boat to Paros.

Depending on the ferry company, the trip from Athens to Paros will take between 3 – 5 hrs. For Greek ferry schedules, a good website is www.gtp.gr

Our retreat will officially start in the early evening of September 28th, giving you all day to arrive at the venue.
