Iyengar Yoga Retreat in Greece with Janet MacLeod

Iyengar Yoga Retreat in Greece with Janet MacLeod

Although Yoga can be practiced anywhere, the environment can certainly have an effect. Join me for the retreat of a lifetime on the peaceful island of Paros, a perfectly positive place!

Attending this Yoga Retreat is a wonderful gift you can give to yourself.

Spending a week in a peaceful environment by the sea, relax with the sound of the waves while being uplifted by sunshine and blue skies. Enjoying healthy meals and practicing yoga daily.

Iyengar Yoga is well known for its therapeutic applications and alternative asanas will be offered as necessary.

Often after doing yoga daily for one week, students continue this practice after they return home. Those already doing yoga daily, will find that their practice is deeper.


The morning yoga sessions will be more dynamic and there will be a class each day – Monday to Saturday.

The afternoon class will emphasize restorative asanas and pranayama.

There will be two afternoons off – Wednesday and Friday giving you some time to explore the island after lunch.
