Included in our Yoga Retreat offering
Our Ambassador Yoga Retreat offers one of the most complete and transformative experiences in health and wellbeing.
There is the privilege of learning and practicing Yoga in the idyllic natural setting of Scorpios, a promontory raised above the pristine waters of its own private beach and from which you can follow the sun’s arc from sunrise to sunset.
Moreover, it is also a retreat in the sense of privacy and luxury, offering 5-star, fully-serviced individual accommodation, with rooms opening out onto your own balcony with views of the Aegean, access to the hotel’s spectacular pool deck, and complementary sources of well-being such as the Thalasso spa and gym.
Yoga class in the breathtakingly beautiful setting of Scorpios, situated a 10-minute walk from Ambassador along a scenic coastal path.
After morning practice, enjoy a delicious brunch of organic, locally sourced produce at Latitudes, while taking in the spectacular view of the pool deck and the Aegean beyond.
11:00 to 18:00
Tailor your perfect day, choosing from suggested activities proposed by Eleni to balance your inner and outward journeys. It is entirely up to you whether you prefer to relax by the pool, laze on our beach loungers in the shade of large parasols, indulge in the facilities and treatments offered by our Thalasso Spa, or explore the celebrated charms of Mykonos and its surrounding islands. Perhaps the only outing which Eleni may guide you to undertake with some insistence, is the discovery of the sacred island of Delos, a Unesco heritage site and one of the treasures of the Mediterranean. It is also a place with reserves of pure and archaic energy which any practitioner of mindfulness will appreciate.
Relaxing evening class focused on alignment, pranayama, restoration and yoga Nidra.
Your first night will be celebrated with a superb dinner under the stars, created by our head chef under whose guidance Efisia, the Ambassador’s Relais & Chateaux restaurant, has earned its accolade as one of the island’s top tables.
If you have not signed up for the 7-day Ambassador Yoga Detox Menu, you will be free to join in exploring different restaurants on the island on the following nights, or alternatively enjoy staying ‘home’ with room service.
Our Greek teacher Eleni Malakou (click here to find out more about Eleni) is the founder of @Think White Yoga and Well-being@. Her teaching approach combines dynamic sun salutations, creative and therapeutic asanas and powerful stretching positions.
Sessions are designed for all levels, offering modifications for beginners and greater challenges for advanced students. Eleni remains at your disposal throughout the day during the retreat, for in-depth additional tuition, personal postural corrections and any physical discomforts for which she is able to make recommendations, given her extensive physiotherapy training.
Discover the inimitable Myconian hospitality and enjoy the uniquely spacious and elegant luxury of the Ambassador’s rooms, appointed with every attention to detail for your comfort, and designed with open flow that leads onto private balconies or terraces with sweeping sea views.
Indulge yourself with a massage at the hotel’s luxury spa, detox in the steam bath or Jacuzzi, and enjoy a complimentary daily Thalasso-therapy spa treatment.
After your intense yoga practice, the perfect start to your day with a royal breakfast prepared from the freshest ingredients and served in Latitudes, our breakfast lounge flooded with sunlight and sea views.
A recommended list of the top tables on the island, from the most sophisticated to the most authentic, gives you the option of a different culinary adventure every night – though you may find that the best is right here at Efisia.
