Who will be facilitating your retreat?

Neovi and Anna will be co-hosting the workshops and heartfelt soul sharings.

Anna Vardaxoglou (https://avholisticmoves.gr/) is a trained dancer, fitness instructor, an incredible masseuse incorporating osteopathy, craniosacral therapy and Thai Yoga Massage. She puts her own magic all together in one glorious package to leave you feeling like you could float away afterwards.

Anna Vardaxoglou deals with movement and the healing of the human body. Being an athlete herself since the age of five, she loved movement and its benefits and graduated from the Kapodistrian University of Athens as a teacher of physical education and dance. After many years of teaching and as she always had a holistic approach to the human body, she became involved in dance therapy, therapeutic exercise, and therapeutic massage. Now, she provides a comprehensive and multi-dimensional service for the care and improvement of the most sophisticated machine… of our body.

Neovi Vlassopoulou (https://www.instagram.com/neovivlass_/) is a Reiki practitioner, Yoga and Conscious Movements Teacher, Sacred space holder and artist.

The healing modalities Neovi works with are Yoga, Yoga Dance, Cacao Ceremonies, Reiki (energy healing), womb healing, holistic art therapy and Massage Neovi style (you have to experience it to understand it!). Neovi’s creativity oozes through all modalities, blending one into the other to carve out truly divinely aligned experiences. Propelling us deep into our authentic souls where we find our passion, our souls’ authenticity and unconditional self-love. In 2017 Neovi completed 500 hours Yoga Teacher Training in India and has since been spreading her enthusiasm and love throughout the world. Since then, she birthed the ‘Womb Empowering Yoga Dance’ a practice honouring the masculine (with yoga) and the Feminine (through dance) combined in one practice. Expect to feel LIBERATED with this powerful and fun practice! Ever changing and growing with all of her travels, Neovi’s unique style in her teachings is a mix of deep & fun, light hearted & deep, channeling & soft, to honour the polarity within us. With studying the body-mind-soul connection for 11 years Neovi is equipped with a fountain of knowledge of how to heal our hearts, souls and minds through the body and with energy work. There will be opportunities to work 1-1 with Neovi throughout the retreat for a more personally tailored session just for you.

Where will the retreat take place?

At our wonderfully relaxing, stunning Hotel Omiros centred in the heart of Ermoupouli, Syros, Cyclades.

This place is soaked in culture from all the breathtakingly stunning marble buildings and streets where the reminders of ancient times still remain. Where we have gorgeous trees with remarkable colours and vibrancy and the view to the blue sea behind every corner of the town.

How to get there: 🛳️ ✈️

If flying from abroad you can either fly to Athens international airport, then take a connecting flight (30 minutes) to Syros domestic airport. Or you can take a taxi (40 mins)/metro (1hr+) from the airport to the Port of Piraeus and take a ferry (4hours) to Syros.

Alternatively, it may be much more convenient to fly to Mykonos international airport where there an abundance of flights coming and going all the time and then from there take a 1-hour ferry and arrive to our beautiful island!

What about food? 🥗

We will provide two meals per day, brunch at 10 am, then dinner at 7.30 pm.

We will provide a healthy nutritious spread for breakfast and a warm cooked meal in the evening times. Please inform us of your dietary requirements, like intolerances, vegan, vegetarian, meat eater etc. So, we can prepare best to serve everyone a meal of love.

What will the schedule be like?

Most of our workshops will be held outdoors, and some outside of the premises. However, as it is the end of May, it can happen in rare occasions where we may get some rain or less than serene conditions.

It is for this reason that the schedule will be loose until nearer the time as it will be weather dependent.

Meditation & Conscious Movements in the mornings: 8.00-9.30

Breakfast: 10.00-11.00

Art therapy/Vocal activation/Song circle: 11.30-13.00
