All Levels Yoga + Meditation Retreat
Led by Marc Holzman & Tara Judelle
We call it a Retreat. It’s really an Advance.
Marc and Tara, have been co-creating and redefining the retreat experience for over twelve years. In that time, we have remained loyal to our one common vision:
to advance our students towards a deeper level of self-discovery through the power of movement, shared wisdom, meditation and attunement with nature.
It all happens at the Okreblue retreat center on the spectacular island of Paros.
Our prior retreat students often tell us that we over-deliver; this is a badge of honor that we wear proudly! Our days begin with sunrise mantra on the beach followed by guided meditation, dynamic movement through traditional yoga and Embodied Flow™️, Ayurveda lectures and practices.
Marc continues to build on his Ayurvedic knowledge to include the potent and healing essential oils of medicinal plants, and Tara continues to explore methods for guiding people into meditation in motion through asana and free movement.
We are excited to share our new discoveries with you.
Of course, you’ll also enjoy nearly five free hours daily in which to swim in the pristine, Cycladic, turquoise sea, play in the sun, visit ancient towns and ruins, or simply journal and take long naps. And let’s not forget our extraordinary Indian chef, Suresh, who graces us daily with fresh, organic, vegetarian dishes harvested directly from the Okreblue garden.
Whether you are one of our retreat Alumni or have been postponing this gift to yourself for a few years, we invite you to join us once again or for the very first time to watch the magical sunrise in the east morph into the glowing sunset in the west. The famous liquid glow of Grecian light is sublime.
This is how you synchronize your body/mind to the rhythms of nature.
This is where deep rejuvenation begins.
This is why we return.
Come celebrate with us.

ROOM SHARE POLICY:
When booking a shared room while traveling alone, we will do our best to couple you with another same-sex participant that is traveling solo too.

So when you book early, there is a high chance that you can share the room with another participant.
