HIDDEN PARADISE FLOW & RESTORE
6 Day Yoga & Excursion Retreat
Onar, Andros Island, Greece
2023 DATES T.B.A
Find yourself tucked away in a hidden paradise, surrounded by lush green nature in the most remote part of Andros. Be woken up in symphonic serenity by the sound of running water harmoniously intertwined with the hissing of wind passing through maple leaves.
A river fairytale giving way slowly to the untouched beauty of a white pebbled beach with crystal blue waters.
Together with Onar we have co-created a retreat that will offer you the space to forget about time, let go of anything that may be weighing you down, so you explore your inner beauty and playfully restore your inner balance.
7 days infused with guided meditations, accompanied by the sound of crashing waves, daily, creative yoga classes nestled under maple trees, rejuvenating massage sessions, off-the-beaten track hikes and relaxing moments under the warmth of the Greek sun.
Andros is heaven for those seeking an authentic Greek island experience. It combines the rich and captivating culture of the Cyclades with authentic Mediterranean charm. All of this is a mere hour away from Athens. Cobblestone paths run along the island through meadows giving off scents of thyme, saffron and sage.
On the East side of Andros, lies a rare and protected wetland. Tucked away in a magical place where the river meets the sea, Onar offers a haven to valuable species and habitats. Houses of Cycladic architecture, made exclusively of natural materials: local stone, wood and river reeds. Inside, minimal furniture and details in white and earthy colours are harmoniously combined.
Explore with us the stunning beauty of Andros island, align yourself with nature through daily yoga and breath-work sessions, enjoy the serenity Onar offers and swim in the crystal clear, turquoise waters of Ahla beach.
Our intention is to create an experience that feels authentic, pure and which leaves you feeling inspired, full of love and joy. To achieve that we have composed a schedule that is created to be adjusted in accordance with what feels more natural each day of the retreat.

Make sure you have pre-booked your ferry tickets through ferryhopper.com. Keep in mind that the drive from Andros Port to Onar is mostly unpaved and quite hilly so good driving skills or 4x4 are necessary.

Previous Retreat Love
Read what attendees of our previous retreats say about us.
The Anasa retreat in July 2021 was my first yoga retreat ever so I knew little of what to expect. Mirka and Efsevios did an amazing job and completely blew me away with the location, the balanced but exciting daily schedules, their deep engagement in the group and their radiating love and passion.
The retreat with Anasa was a truly special experience. Everything was arranged with such careful thought - you could really feel all of the love that was put into it. Everything was top notch - from the beautiful accommodation, to the diverse program, to the amazing food. I felt I could really relax because I didn't have to worry about anything which is really special - as an adult you don't get this luxury very often! Seb & Mirka are also such gorgeous, warm, welcoming people - they are really what sets this retreat apart from others. If you're thinking about joining an Anasa retreat, don't hesitate - do it!
The Anasa yoga retreat at Pelion Homes was the first retreat I've attended and I'm sure it will be very hard to beat! Mirka and Efsevios did an awesome job making us feel like home within the beautiful nature and creating a wonderful experience from this week together! The yoga sessions were powerful and energising, leaving enough room to grow and discover yourself. Also the afternoon activities like going to a beach, hiking or climbing up waterfalls were amazing and something really special to enjoy with our group. The food was incredibly good and made with so much love! I cannot thank you enough for this wonderful week and I would highly recommend anyone to have this experience aswell!
