Featuring Local Greek Eats, Yoga on the Beach & Volunteering with Dirty Girls to assist in the Refugee Crisis. Fall in love with Lesvos!

Please join us for an all-inclusive 5 night/ 6 day Yoga Tour! The dates are May 5-10th, 2018.

Please note that each tour is customized and tailored to the desires and needs of the group, so the itinerary will be slightly altered to accommodate! We are collaborating with Amy and our team of yoga instructors to create the best experience for everyone! This yoga tour will feature daily yoga by various instructors and yoga styles, but will not be entirely the main focus. We will also taste lots of local flavors, you will have an opportunity to volunteer in the refugee efforts, and we will engage in some local activities within the community, alongside new friends! This will be a total body, mind and heart experience.

Tara & Angel will meet you at the Mytilene Airport in Lesvos, where transportation will be arranged for you. You will enjoy the lovely coastal drive to Molivos. Situated on the magical north-western coastline of the majestic Aegean island of Lesvos, Aphrodite Hotel, rated the #1 hotel in Molyvos, has a private beach, amidst splendid palm trees, olive groves and flower gardens. We will enjoy many sunsets at the hotel taverna!

We will explore the Aegean on a boating adventure and enjoy BBQ on-board (weather permitting), stopping to snorkel and swim! We will discover the Traditional Market of Molivos! Enjoy the afternoon shopping or sipping a café on a veranda overlooking the harbor. Our Greek language lesson will teach you the proper greetings and courtesies to use with the local community (although they do speak English). An excursion to the natural Healing Springs and relaxing beaches of Petra are included, where we will practice yoga and mindfulness. A traditional family meal will be shared together at the famous Taverna Vafios, an open-air restaurant with great ambiance, views of the ocean and amazing local dishes! Also, there’s an opportunity for karma practice when we volunteer with Dirty Girls (last year, we salvaged pieces of life jackets to be recycled- See the video here). You don’t want to miss our traditional Greek family style dinner at The Women’s Co-Operative, Petra’s #1 Restaurant! Finally, we’ll visit the famous castle that overlooks the Aegean ocean! We invite you to read more about our June 2016 trip at Tara’s blog, Our Big Fat Greek Adventure!

NOTE that ALL costs for this tour are included, except airfare!

We’ve partnered with Dirty Girls of Lesvos and The Other Aegean (Lesvos Tourism Board) to promote tourism on the island. Lesvos is an incredible island full of kind people and amazing hospitality. The refugee waves diminished by mid-2016 and the island returned to normal. Except, tourism has declined by 58% (see a video that explains the situation here). Your trip supports the local economy that helped those refugees and who are now struggling- through enjoying our time in Lesvos, we will make a difference in their lives.

We are looking to share the experience of this beautiful island we refer to as The Other Aegean. The less-traveled, the more authentic, the more welcoming Aegean. The natural beauty, the history and culture, the gastronomy, and the hospitality. This island also possesses a certain unique energy that helps meditation and allows one to achieve a level of harmony and relaxation unlike anywhere else. Lesvos is the hidden gem of the Aegean Sea. It is the sunniest island in the Aegean. A place where you discover something new each time you visit.

This tour was designed for a group of at least 5 Crew Travelers per Yoga Instructor. Without 5 crew travelers minimum, we reserve the right to cancel the trip.

Day 6


Breakfast and departure from the hotel.

Most travelers will fly from the US to Athens Airport. Note that in order to arrive May 5th, your departure from the U.S. must be on or before May 4th. There is free WiFi at ATH Airport and Uber is available should you like to tour the city! We recommend stopping in Athens for 24 hours! See our blog for a 24-hour guide in Athens

Athens is a short hop, less than 30 minutes, to Mytlilline, Lesvos. There are 2 flights arriving from Athens on May 5th. We recommend that you book directly with Aegean Airlines for lower rates. Flight OA250 arrives at 6:20 AM and flight OA254 arrives at 9:30 PM. There will be shuttles to accommodate both arrivals.

OA250 departs to Athens at 5:30 AM on May 10th. Our shuttles will get everyone to the airport with enough time to clear customs (it’s small) and board the flight!

There is a ferry boat that runs between Lesvos and Athens, however, the price is about the same as flying and takes around 10 hours; We don’t recommend it!
