September 12-19, 2015
I am love. Close your eyes and take a deep breath in as you say, “I Am,” and then exhale slowly as you say the word, “Love.” Repeat this mantra with your breath a few more times, and I guarantee you’ll feel a little lighter and at peace. Try it: I Am. Love.
Are you seeking time for inward reflection, for setting dreams and intentions, for inspirational asana and meditation practice that will stir your soul? A week just for you – to nurture your spirit, refuel with positive energy, and find your bliss. If so, I warmly invite you to the I Am Love Beach Yoga Bliss retreat in Santorini, Greece, in September 2015.
Our mantra for the week will be “I Am Love,” and together we’ll learn how to live that mantra, letting go of fear, stress, or whatever is keeping you from living out your intentions and opening the heart wide open to love.
This stunning view from the yoga deck overlooking the sapphire blue waters of the Aegean Sea will be your yoga studio for the week. The morning sessions are reserved for a spirited, all-levels asana and meditation practice, and the late afternoon sunset classes are restorative with more time for sweet meditation. A few of the evening sessions will include therapeutic myofascial release with Yoga Tune-Up® Therapy Balls and deep relaxation through yoga nidra.
Every evening we’ll enjoy a Santorini Sunset during our yoga practice.
The afternoons are open to explore the island and enjoy the picturesque red and black sand beaches, try out the Vinsanto local wine, visit ancient ruins, or just relax at one of the hotel’s many pools, which also sport gorgeous views of the coast.
Rocabella Santorini Resort & Spa is a private and secluded hotel conveniently located in the center of the island between Fira and Oia, providing a magical landscape surrounded by volcanic rock cliffs, Aegean waters, and caldera views. Within walking distance of the hotel you will find easy access to many dining, shopping, and entertainment options in the town of Fira.

“Maria is a crazy awesome yoga leader. Her Aruba beach yoga retreat was recommended to me by a friend in 2013 as one of the best, most relaxing vacations, and she wasn’t kidding! This was my first yoga retreat and will not be my last. The resort was perfect, and my fellow yogini goddesses were beautiful. There was a great balance of yoga, group outings, and personal time, so much fun. It was wonderful to totally unplug. I returned from vacation completely relaxed, at peace, and with a new commitment to my yoga. If you every get the opportunity to practice yoga with Maria, whether in a class or on a retreat, I would highly recommend it. Maria is fun, energetic, compassionate, and exemplifies her manta: I Am Love.” – Debbie Cotts
