What You'll Experience

Take a  journey with Tracey at the beautiful OkreBlue Retreat Center on the Greek island of Paros, located right next to a stunning beach. In this retreat she calls 'Revive', she will help you access your truest nature, a feeling that has no attachment. THIS is where magic happens - the energy, the prana, the breath and something indescribable… something we do not know yet. How do we trust enough in simply being, rather than doing? How do we allow ourselves to simply feel instead of thinking?

Unearth these mysteries by exploring the energy that you carry with you every day. Bring awareness to the obstacles that you create so that you can chisel them away and let them go. What remains is crystal clear waters, restoration, relaxation and bliss. We will practice twice daily in an outdoor shala right beside the beautiful, quiet beach of Flilizi, mixing devotional movement with meditation and pranayama. Join Tracey to feel transformed and refreshed.

The Venue

Located on the idyllic Greek island of Paros, Okreblue has been home to hundreds of yoga retreats over the last ten years. With beautiful beaches, crystal waters, and lovely studios and accomodations, Okreblue manages to feel like an escape and a home away from home all at the same time. It’s a perfect place to centre yourself and unwind. This is why we chose it for our Revive 2019 Yoga Retreat, which also happens to be our very first retreat in Europe!

Okreblue has been a decade-long labour of love for its owners, Sassy and Angelo, who have gradually expanded what was a small seaside hotel into the multi-building, eco-friendly complex seen today. Now with two large studio spaces, an assortment of accomodations, an organic garden, available massage and reiki treatments, and Caretta Healthy Restaurant & Café, Okreblue has acquired the amenities of a world-class retreat while retaining its natural, homespun feel.

Between yoga sessions, you can stroll down to the beach through fragrant cedar trees and rolling sand dunes, dip in the fabled Aegean, rent a bike to visit a nearby historic site, or simply lounge on a shaded terrace with a cold drink and enjoy the view of the sea. There really are not any bad options, which is maybe why so many of Okreblue visitors keep coming back for more year after year after year. Visit Okreblue's About Us page  to learn more, or check out this great YouTube video of the retreat. 

Food

Okreblue’s restaurant, the Caretta Healthy Restaurant and Cafe, serves retreat-goers three delicious buffet-style vegetarian meals daily. Meals incorporate organic vegetables grown on-site and local ingredients sourced from across the island. The chef, Suresh, specializes in Mediterranean-Indian fusion cuisine, and is happy to make accommodations for a variety of diets, including gluten and dairy free. Savor his renowned rich breakfasts (think yogurt and organic honey!), cold plates, gluten-free breads, and vegetarian or vegan desserts. Carretta Restaurant and Cafe is open all day, so you can always drop in and order from the menu if you happen to get peckish between meals! Visit Okreblue's Food page to learn more.
