What’s special about it is that participants enjoy a tailored teaching along with an immersive wellness experience.

By the end of the week, you will have a greater grounding in all aspects of Ashtanga and leave the retreat fully recharged. Practices are open to all levels.

The unparalleled well-being center of Euphoria with its impeccable food, treatments, and facilities create one of the world’s ultimate healthy get-aways.

The resort offers a scientifically proven healthy, Mediterranean diet based on balance and enjoyment.
