About Dolphin's Leap
Dolphin’s Leap is a stunning Mediterranean villa set in the hillside with dramatic views across the Aegean Sea in the Pelion region of Greece.
The property is set in a idyllic location with a saltwater infinity pool and verandah looking out across the bay of Lefokastro where dolphins are often seen. There's a diving board for morning dips in the clear blue Aegean waters and a small, quiet beach a few steps away, perfect for morning meditation.
Each day will begin with meditation on the beach and a flowing asana class on the yoga terrace overlooking the deep blue sea, opening the body and attuning the mind to the breath.
Morning practice will be followed by a healthy breakfast. Then you will be free to head off down to the beach, relax by the pool or explore the stunning beauty of the surroundings.
A light self service lunch will be offered. The group will meet again in the late afternoon for a second more restorative yoga session. The classes will be suitable for all levels and yoga experience. There will be one yoga free day during the week and no yoga on travel days.
In the evenings, a dinner of delicious home cooked Greek dishes will be served with local wine. The group will eat al fresco on a shaded terrace as the sun sets. One evening the group will walk to the local village for dinner at a charming traditional Greek tavernas.

I was so glad to finally make it onto a retreat and couldn't have chosen a better teacher. Thank you, Sunita, for holding the space with such positivity and care. Your energy and spirit are infectious and with it, you made the group feel whole. The venue was perfect for yoga and blissfully quiet. Thank you YOAS and Wendy for organising.Kim
