This is a heavenly week-long Retreat presented by Hilde Eiselen & Brian Siddartha Ingle, two experienced yoga and Somatics teachers from Ireland and South Africa, respectively Brian lives in India and Hilde lives in Ireland.

This is a wonderful opportunity to deepen your practice or begin Yoga for the first time in a calm, peaceful environment conducive to relaxation, rejuvenation and unwinding.

A truly magical island, where you can swim in the warm sea, visit the traditional villages and medieval castle or just enjoy beach or hill walks. It boasts breathtaking views, sweeping from the hills down to the cobalt Aegean Sea. In May the ocean is warm, the land is quiet and the weather is balmy.

This retreat is is a perfect, tranquil place to find peace and allow the mind and body to be recharged and revitalised. The Milelja Centre is purpose-built and provides extremely comfortable accommodation in a very beautiful and inviting environment. The centre was lovingly created by German couple Gisa and Detlef Siebert-Bartling over two decades and offers every possible facility and joyful consideration guests might expect. It is situated on the hillside, amongst olive trees in a beautiful mature garden, right next to fields with wild flowers, close to the beach and a short walk from the historic town of Molyvos.

Pamper yourself: Treat yourself to a wide variety of massage and cosmetic treatments in the warm, friendly and relaxing environment of the local Milelja Wellness Beauty Salon. This excellent wellness spa is run by Anna, the daughter of the German owners of Milelja.


A delicious and brunch feast is included in the price of your accommodation, which also covers 4.5 hours of yoga/somatics per day. Gisa and her team create delicious and wholesome vegetarian meals to enjoy in the outdoor dining room under the pergola - with fabulous views towards the harbour! Most foods are sourced locally and utterly yummy!

In the evenings we usually walk (you can get a taxi if you choose) the short distance to the village of Molyvos and select one of the many outstanding local tavernas for fantastic fresh fish, inspirational vegetarian dishes or traditional Greek slow cooked meat specialities. The food is one of the great joys of this holiday!
