Dee’s extensive experience in Yin Yoga allows for a wide ranging adaptations to postures so classes really do cater for all abilities. These retreats are a wonderful experience which I highly recommend."

An incredibly high level of service...

"So far, I've attended three SPACE retreats. The quality of the tutors has been exceptional, the daily activities were varied and always just challenging enough while still being deeply relaxing. Dee’s attention to detail is incredible, from the wonderful food, to the music and poetry choices, she has an ability to provide an incredibly high level of service to suit everybody with such grace and kindness. The SPACE retreats have been very special, thank you!"

What to expect on retreat

This retreat is designed for you to take as much or as little as you need from it. The yoga will be suitable for everyone, including beginners. We welcome partners who want to enjoy the rest but don't wish to participate in the yoga.

We're offering 5 wonderful excursions to include hiking, waterfall dipping and even a boat trip, but you may also prefer to rest in peace and quiet at Evia Silence.

Our aim is for you to completely recharge, rest and RESTORE yourself during this week.

Practising yoga at Evia Silence

Meditation or breathwork

We'll start each day with either a guided meditation or breathwork session.

Yoga to energise & awaken

We'll then enjoy a gentle morning stretch to ease out all the tension, followed by some easy movement to energise you for your day. The perfect way to wake up. If you’re a beginner to yoga, this is absolutely fine. You won't be expected to do anything complicated or difficult.

Free time

This is your time so you get to choose how you spend it. Whether that’s lying in the sunshine with a book, dipping in the pool or sea or joining one of the excursions, the choice is yours. Relaxed vibes only!

There's a small pool with outdoor seating and sun-loungers on a part-covered terrace for the best choice of sun or shade. 

Evia Silence overlooks the stunning Porto Buffalo Bay, perfect for a daily dip in the sea. You'll have plenty of time to relax!

For those wishing to be more energetic, you might like to join one or all of the 5 excursions we have planned for you. For more details, see 'Excursions' below.

Yin yoga

Our evening Yin yoga class will be a slower practice where poses are held longer to allow you to really sink deep into the body, calm the mind and turn the focus inwards. This is a perfect class to end the day before we sit down for supper and a relaxed evening overlooking the bay.

Sleep yoga 

Dee will offer 3 sleep sessions (Yoga Nidra) from her popular Sleep is Magic course. Guaranteed to make you sleep like a baby!

Self-care at its best...

"Dee’s retreats provide the ultimate in relaxation and ‘luxurious me time’. From the moment you arrive you're swept away from your day-to-day life and can fully immerse yourself in yin yoga, scenic walks and fun and friendly conversations around the dinner table. With no pressure to participate in anything if you don’t want to, I always leave Dee’s retreats more grounded and refreshed than when I came. Dee has a way of creating a loving and warm space for everyone where you can literally leave the outside world behind and focus fully just on yourself. Self-care at its best!"

Yet another fabulous experience...

"I've attended a number of retreats organised by Dee now. One was SNOWGA in the French Alps, which was superb, extremely well organised with the most amazing chef  and fabulous accommodation. Another was in the mountains of Granada, Spain and was a combination of Yoga and Lomi Lomi massage. It was a great combination and that style of massage was new to everyone and an amazing experience. The property was gorgeous, with a luxury pool and amazing views, and the chef was excellent and catered to all our needs. Thank you for yet another fabulous experience!"
