untainted closeness to nature

in total harmony with the surrounding environment

At Okreblue, you can relax into your retreat experience knowing that you are contributing to the rejuvenation of the land and support of the local Parian community. Sustainability is the blood and bones of Okreblue. The deep respect and care for nature and the local community underpins every aspect of your Retreat experience.

Built By Yogis for Yogis

Okreblue is the love child of Sasy and Angelo, two local Parians who live and breathe in Yoga. The couple have a deep love for nature, clean and nourishing food, and maintain a simple, healthy way of life.

Okreblue has been created and passionately developed for over 13 years, on land that has belonged to Angelo’s family for over a century. Far removed from the busier tourist hotspots and modern developments on some parts of the Greek Islands, Sasy and Angelo have purposefully preserved the natural landscape of the family land. Okreblue has been developed with minimal interference and a deep respect for the surrounding Elements.

Okreblue is continually evolving to this day. This is a reflection of Sasy and Angelo’s ongoing commitment to create an authentic space for Yoga and wellness and to share the Okreblue ethos with guests from around the world.

Sasy and Angelo are honoured to invite you to Okreblue to share in this simple and wholesome way of life. They hope your experience at Okreblue inspires you in your journey of wellness, Yoga, and ongoing self discovery, just as it has, and continues to do, for them.

Be inspired to take action

Every step behind the creation and the ongoing operation of Okreblue is considered a gesture, an offering, an opportunity to serve.

Okreblue is Yoga in action

Every step behind the creation and the ongoing operation of Okreblue is considered a gesture, an offering, an opportunity to serve. At Okreblue, it is clear that Yoga is more than what we do on the mat. The actions we take off the mat impact the world around us. The spirit of Okreblue demonstrates how we can all have a positive impact and create a better world, a world that we can be proud of. No matter where you are from or what you do, whether you are new to Yoga or an experienced Yogi completing an advanced Teacher Training, an experience at Okreblue will inspire you to take positive action!

Live in a truly sustainable environment

Sustainability is the blood and bones of Okreblue.

sustainability

The deep respect and care for nature and the local community underpins every aspect of the design, development, management and ongoing operation at Okreblue.

We are proud to mention just a few of the key initiatives that underpin our sustainability strategy

Okreblue’s organic gardens supply the majority of ingredients in the Carretta restaurant. The rest of the ingredients are sourced locally (on Paros, or wider-Greece) to travel and the carbon footprint.

Food is up-cycled to minimize waste in the kitchen and all scraps are composted to nourish and grow the organic gardens

We offer filtered water to all our guests and encourage minimal use of one-off plastics. Our facilities strictly adhere to recycling all plastics when necessary

Shower water is recycled and used to water the trees onsite and we use biodegradable soaps in our bathrooms and laundry.

Our recent buildings are sustainably designed and built. This includes the use of recycled local tires to create the buoyant floors in one our Yoga Shalas. The new eco-deluxe rooms are made entirely from natural materials, such as clay, mud, wood, stones and hay from the surrounding environment.

Okreblue’s commitment to continually improving its footprint is ongoing. Every year new initiatives are introduced to help Okreblue increase its sustainability and leave an increasingly positive footprint on the surrounding environment.
