Relaxing is the key to doing anything well. The reason? When you are relaxed, you become fully present. Being fully present is the key to manifesting whatever you choose. When you take time out for a retreat, you learn practices that train you to relax deeply.
A robust wellness retreat addresses the whole human package. Emphasis is on going deeper into the whole being–including the psychological process–which gives clarity when making life choices. You will learn to access inner wisdom through mindfulness and awareness. A quality wellness program will give you tools and daily practices to facilitate dialogue with this deeper wisdom current so that it becomes part of your daily life.

Stone Light 5-Day Yoga Retreat – Greece
Join us at Stone Light Retreat in Greece to experience the Grounding and the Inner Calm. It is this strength that allows us to stay mentally, emotionally and physically steady, even in difficult times. This special retreat is held in a picturesque village of Ιtilo. Be immersed in a village of well-preserved stone-houses, stone paths and old byzantine churches (like the temple of Virgin Mary’s Dormition, or the church of Saint George). Ιtilo was known from the Mycenaean era as one of the nine Achaic cities governed by Menelaos.
Benefits of this retreat:
A series of five grounding morning yoga classes (Iyengar/vinyasa) to help you feel rooted in your sense of center, while you cultivate spaciousness within.
Calm afternoon yoga classes, in order to feel yourself expanding toward the sun while drawing this energy to your center. All classes end with basic pranayama techniques and meditation to ensure that you absorb all the benefits of your practice.
The daily activity will be related to this ancient human mystic connection to the tree of wisdom: you will visit olive groves, perform meditative walks, gather olives, perform meditative sessions under these precious trees and open ourselves up to the energy of the grove.

Empowerment Family Retreat by Jolie, Canvass
This is a chance to BE with your family in nature and indulge in daily yoga, art jamming sessions and mindfulness meditations. The Family Yoga Retreat gives us time and space for a family to “be” together with a digital detox.
Helmed by Jolie Michelle Leow, the founder of Canvass Singapore, this weekend will see the children spend precious one-on-one time with her. They are in attentive childcare in the mornings, during which parents have time for yoga, brunch and treatments. Afternoons are free to enjoy together, with activities for kids and evening sharing circles for parents to restore and heal.
Each morning all the children are taken care of in the villa vicinity, by an empathetic group of Balinese women who do balinese crafts, games, hooping with them, and engage them in everything from artwork to jewellery making. The spacious courtyard garden will provide toys and equipment and a joy to see.
Every class helps the family to feel connected to themselves, and expect to enjoy music and drumming by Balinese facilitators who will share their deep-rooted spirit of the ancient Balinese culture. Some of the topics include:
- Friendships, relationships
- Self-esteem, body awareness
- Forgiving mistakes
- Expressing loving and kind thoughts
Open your heart, body and mind through Yoga, Art, and Meditation to awaken joy, love and abundance.
This is a time for you to pause for a moment, stay true to you, to feel joyful and free in your practice, with Jolie and three other families in a beautiful environment that feels sacred, magical and safe.
