Bringing Back 

the Joy of Being

an Ayurveda-Yoga focused Retreat
at Zen Rocks Mani - Greece


Book a seat for May 2023


Come and be nourished on this Greek Escape


The Greek Escape is an invitation for you to experience the healing and creative energy of an ayurvedic-centered lifestyle, as part of a loving community and in a serene environment. The practice of moving your body consciously (yoga) and various forms of meditation will support you to reconnect with your body.
Simple self-applied ayurvedic treatments and creative and sacred practices (journaling, chanting and ancestral healing) will allow you to heal and connect deeply, so as to open up to the loving presence of Being.
One of the community-enhancing elements of this retreat is the practice of cooking together and serving each other. People with no cooking skills always find a place in these practices by becoming sous chefs and helping with simpler chores.

Some things become easier with friends

  • Do you feel your life is pulling you in too many directions? 
  • Are career and relationship demands keeping you on autopilot?

Make a conscious decision to stop and reconnect to your life force energy with the therapeutic practices of Ayurveda (Science of Life).

What are Sacred Connections?

  • Sacred means bigger than I
  • it describes the network beyond the obvious and tangible
  • and the sense that we are held and guided from somewhere deeper or higher
  • but also that our lives are a web of servicing each other and  the greater community

How will you experience this?

  • by experiencing a Lightness in Being
  • Your Inner Voice will be more apparent and important to you
  • You will feel reignited and connected to your bodies life force (energy)
  • it will be more apparent to you where you are of service and how to express this for your own well-being and the well-being of the greater community

What People are Saying:




Guiding You through this Experience:

Alexandra will accompany and lead you through the retreat.

For her, this retreat resembles a Gatherings where knowledge and wisdom meet. By offering her knowledge, participants can reach into their understanding and find their inherent wisdom.

Alexandra founded a studio in Ireland for movement and healing, learned various Ayurveda modules (consultation, massage, ancestral healing, and other applications), and has passed on her knowledge in workshops, yoga classes, lectures, and online coaching for more than 20 years. She has worked with Dr Robert Svoboda, Dr Claudia Welch, Cate Stillman, and other influential Ayurvedis, Tantrics and Yogis.

Alexandra’s current focus is beyond the learned methods – to embody and express the art of living here and now in a loving presence.
