We offer daily yoga classes that bring deep, relaxing peace. We also have fitness/pilates/nutritional/spiritual retreats all through our season. Our local and international teachers visit us all summer long to offer their special services and amazing talents. Our retreats/bootcamps/seminars combine self-love, laughter, kindness and the amazing island of Mykonos. We would love you to join us. We have listed some of our retreats for late summer 2017 and we have many more planned for 2018.

Our new space was lovingly created with the intention to bring people together and a sense of being in a home away from home. Mykonos is one of the most famous of all the Greeks islands and has 26 beaches and an atmosphere rarely found anywhere else in the world. Come and enjoy the beautiful island and all is has to offer and at the same time take care of your body and soul.

Highlights
New retreats each week/month

  • Meditation
  • Asanas and pranayama practices
  • Morning and evening yoga classes
  • Welcome and goodbye drink
  • Αccommodation
  • Breakfast

Morning yoga classes will be a mixture of classical Hatha yoga, Vinyasa flow (one breath per movement sequences), along with Iyengar style segments of structural alignment.

Evening classes will range from Hatha and Vinyasa to Restorative and Yin yoga. Yin yoga will focus more on the inner ligaments, holding poses for longer duration to draw deeper into the body and mind.

Classes technique

The classes will have a great emphasis on the connection with the breath and body, practicing Asana with a Pranayama technique known as Ujjayi breathing. All core asanas will be explained from the base up, covering proper alignment, rotations, and action in each posture. The goal will not be simply to do yoga, but to learn, observe, and experience our bodies, from the material to the esoteric. We have become accustomed to receive our healing from an external source, but yoga must be experienced daily from the inside out.

Villa Konstantin Retreats in Mykonos Greece will offer a diversity of classes and styles. These will appeal to everyone, whether you are a seasoned yogi or a newcomer.

We are hosting several wonderful instructors each year for the duration of the summer. Each and every one of them bring joy and light and new possibilities. We are very grateful to them.

Retreat in Villa Konstantin with...

Frances Rivera / September 10 - 17
Frances Rivera, yoga retreat at Villa Konstantin in Mykonos Greece

Frances Rivera / September 10 - 17 And with us daily for classes from September 10th 2017 to October 15th 2017.

Frances will be teaching twice a day and sharing her gift.

Here is Frances in her own words: I have danced since I was very young, beginning with ballet and then moving into modern and jazz. After dancing in college at UCSB, I continued performing with several small companies. I began taking yoga through various studios around the country, exploring different styles and teachers. A few years ago, I was involved in a very serious motorcycle accident that left me in a coma for a month. Recovery was slow and because of my lack of medical insurance, yoga was my only physical and mental rehabilitation. One of my teachers made such an impression on me that I knew that I wanted to teach. After attaining my 200 hour Yoga Alliance certification, I began teaching full time. I know have certifications in Mat Pilates, Barre, Cardio Kickboxing and I am a 500 hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher as well. I teach a variety of classes, from a very meditative beginning flow, to an advanced power yoga sculpt. I like to offer options in each class so that the student can choose, depending on his or her level of fitness or physical or mental state that day.

Yoga is such a personal, non-competitive discipline that I like to encourage and empower each student to take care of themselves and slowly see why and how each pose is effective in balancing the body. This can mean going to their personal edge and challenging themselves, or taking a more restorative, gentle practice. The philosophy I weave through all my classes is one that is compassionate, empowering and full of gratitude. I encourage each student to be content with where they are that day and in life and at the same time believe in the dreams and "desires of the heart" present within all of us. Yoga helps to quiet the mind of the fear, insecurity and doubt and leads us to grow and expand with the universe. My prayer is that each student finds some "nugget of wisdom" or alignment cues that leave them feeling better at the end of class, in their body and in life.

Frances will be with us once again this September to bring her own style of love, humour and power. She teaches yoga with a unique style with emphasis on alignment and strength. Here are a few words from Frances about her experience last year at Villa Konstantin.
"Villa Konstantin is the perfect location to host a yoga or fitness retreat. The owner, Sharon, is a perfect host and can accommodate different dietary needs and room accommodations. The grounds are gorgeous with a view of the Mediterranean and the food is simple and delicious. Sharon makes every guest feel truly loved and with a wonderful sense of humour and a love of life. I would recommend this fantastic Villa to anyone who has a workshop to share in the breathtaking Mykonos. If you visit once you will be back for more. I promise."
