About This Event

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.

Teacher Bio

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.

Accommodations

Okreblue offers accommodation to suit an array of styles and budgets. Opt for an affordable EcoBlue room made from eco-friendly materials, cosy up with a loved one in a Levante room with a private verandah, or choose from one of several larger rooms with kitchenettes and plenty of space to sleep parties of up to four. Many of the rooms have ocean views and, no matter what you choose, you’ll get plenty of natural light, tasteful and timeless decor, wi-fi access, and all the modern amenities. Visit Okreblue's Accommodation page to learn more.

How To Get There

Flights are available from Athens International Airport to Paros, but they tend to fill up fast, so be sure to book in well in advance. You can book tickets with Aegean Air. There is also the option of booking a flight to the nearby island of Mykonos, and then taking a ferry to Paros.

Ferries depart to Paros from Athens’ Piraeus Port, which is accessible from the Athens International Airport by bus, metro, or taxi. Blue Star Ferries and Hellenic Seaways both offer regular services to Paros from Piraeus. Ferries also run to Paros from another Athenian port, Rafina, but service is more irregular and fluctuates with seasonal demand.

If you are arriving in Paros by boat you will dock at Parikia. From there, you can take a bus to Naousa and then a taxi to Okreblue. You could also just taxi direct to Okreblue from Parikia. If you arrive on Paros by plane, you can take a bus or taxi from Paros Airport to Parikia and then follow the directions above, or taxi directly to Okreblue from the airport.

Okreblue is happy to help arrange for taxis to pick you up at any location on Paros. To access this service, or to learn more about travelling to and from the retreat, contact Okreblue directly here

Taxi transfer from the port is 32€. If more than 3-4 people arrive at the same time, OkreBlue can arrange a bus and the price is 10€ per person.
 Taxi transfer from the airport is 45€. If more than 3-4 people arrive at the same time at the airport, OkreBlue will arrange a bus and the price is 15€ per person.
 Transfers are paid for in cash directly to the taxi driver.

Testimonials

"Tracey Noseworthy has the gift of allowing you to rediscover your joy. I had the trip of a lifetime. The influence and leadership example from Tracey changed my yoga from a simple pastime that I did to stay limber into a lifestyle journey. I was ‘WOKE’. I’ll never be the same again. I discovered a profound connection with myself. I am happy within my own skin."
- Bonnelyn, Veterinarian, Arizona, USA

"I attended Tracey's retreat this year at Mar De Jade in Mexico. The experience was transformational for me as I engaged in connecting with my heart and soul through Tracey's guidance. I experienced the Art of Nine, caring and loving myself, and engaging in challenging and strengthening yoga practice. Tracey is very attentive to all that are present in her session and makes every one feel special. I have already booked my next year's retreat with her and am practicing almost every day so I am ready to continue my learning from her. Learning yoga from Tracey has been one of the best experiences I have had in building internal strength of gratitude, love, and commitment."
- Bindu Sunil, Educator, KY, USA

"Tracey's retreat was more than I could have hoped for. I returned with a renewed sense of calm, strength, confidence and a profound appreciation for the benefits of yoga in my life. Tracey was absolutely wonderful."
- Karina, Lawyer, BC, Canada

"I recently attended a one week retreat with Tracey - her Heart and Soul retreat - and it truly changed my life! Tracey is a one-in-a-million yoga instructor (and person!). She is fun and light and bright and oh so knowledgeable about yoga and our bodies! Her words are so heartfelt and positively charged, as she takes you through her Ahhhhmazing yoga classes! At the retreat, we did yoga twice a day and meditated in the mornings. This left me feeling so in touch emotionally and spiritually, and of course my body was so much more flexible and strong. My body was so much more aligned as well. Kuddos to Tracey and Do Yoga with Me for having this incredible retreat!! And, truth be told, I am already signed up for Tracey's 2020 Heart and Soul retreat!! (can't wait!!) Love you guys!!"

Hi Sharon. Yes, I can give you a ball park. You'll have to look up the cost of your own flight, but outside of that, to get from the airport to OkreBlue, to stay and eat for 7 days and to get back to the airport it will cost around US$1,100-US$1,400.
I think you will love it there!
