Write & Flow

Write & Flow

A week long writing and Yoga retreat in Greece. Escape to heaven on earth to relax, reset, practice Yoga, and write. The retreat is led by a working television writer from The Morning Show (Apple TV+), with Yoga from OkreBlue co-founder Sasy. You’ll leave with a new connection to yourself, your writing, and the world around you.

t’s time we enjoy our one precious life on earth, and that’s what we’re going to do in Greece! We’re going to take boat rides in the Mediterranean, eat all of the feta cheese, and drink all of the red wine. We’re going to wake up early to journal on the beach and practice Yoga. We’re going to write with a cup of coffee or tea as we feel the breeze from the ocean. We’re going to connect to ourselves and create from an authentic place.

This retreat is hosted by me, Ali Vingiano, a TV writer and 200-hour certified Yoga teacher, at OKREBLUE Eco Yoga Retreat Center, a sustainable, boutique hotel in Paros. I’ll be joined by Sasy Chasomeri, a Greek teacher and co-owner of OkreBlue, who will lead meditation and Yoga classes.

Sure, that quote is corny, but it’s true.

We need to live our lives, not just stare at a computer screen trying to find the next line of dialogue. It’s only through new experiences that we can grow, find inspiration, connect to ourselves, and write from a place of passion, excitement, and authenticity.

This is a perfect retreat for somebody who feels like they need new inspiration, who wants to overcome their writer’s block or create a new routine for themself. It’s also a wonderful retreat for somebody who simply wants to write in a beautiful new setting, develop their Yoga practice, relax, or get a reset.
