Another option is a charter flight to Mykonos island, Santorini or Crete and then a boat ride to Paros.

Coming by boat from Athens there are two options:
Rafina port is closer to the airport and you can get there either by taxi or bus (about 45 minutes).
Pireaus port is further from airport than Rafina, you can get there by bus, metro or taxi. The metro and bus are both very convenient because they will leave you just a few meters from where you board the ferry to Paros. Both the bus and the metro take about one hour.

Simran Kaur

Simran Kaur was born in Bogotá, Colombia in 1954. At the age of eleven she moved to Germany and finally studied German and geography in Hamburg (graduation: 2nd state examination). In the 1968s, like many of her generation, she went in search of natural, conscious and community-oriented ways of life – and after extensive trips she found the ashram for Kundalini Yoga at home in Hamburg. She took the spiritual name Simran Kaur (pronounced Kah) and became a Sikh. Soon she became a teacher and eventually an instructor for Kundalini Yoga.

“Kundalini Yoga has fundamentally changed my life – I feel healthier and more powerful, balanced and overall happier. And: I have found the spiritual home that my soul has longed for.”

In 1998 Simran Kaur got to know the Nonviolent Communication (GfK) founded by Marshall Rosenberg; In 2004 she was certified as a GfK trainer.

“I perceive non-violent communication as yoga in communication – it is about mindfulness, self-development, compassion and authentic relationships. GfK has taught me to be really loving with myself and others. Teaching is a great pleasure for me: others in the treasure to share that was given to me in my life. “
