Our Philosophy

We love nature, we love Yoga and a healthy life! And these are what we want to share with our guests! Nature is a permanent source of beauty, inspiration and energy. And so, it has the power to enhance and boost our lives for good. Regular Yoga practices activate our energetic levels and self awareness. Combining nature with yoga, choosing special venues to set up a week of healthy nourishment and comfort for our guests is our first aim. Our commitment is to create for (and with) you an unforgettable experience of balanced holidays in a friendly atmosphere, where daily yoga practices, meditation, alternative practices, ceremonies and healthy food will guide each of the participants to his best state. Self awareness, mindfulness of the body-mind-feelings, silence and harmony are some of the wonders you can aspire on this “Holy-days" with SolarYoga Retreats. LIFE IS HERE AND NOW… LET'S LIVE IT FULLY!
