I enjoyed the yoga retreat on Serifos with Tania so much! She pushes her students to go further (but never too much) and gives very useful adjustments and tips. Altogether I can highly recommend going on a retreat with Tania!


Meet your Teacher:
Tania Kemou

Tania Kemou teaching a yoga workshop in Serifos

Hi, I’m Tania and I’ve been practicing Ashtanga yoga for over a decade. This practice and especially my yearly travels to Mysore (the birthplace of Ashtanga) have changed my life and how I view the world. Now I want to share with you all the insights and blessings this practice and my teacher in India gave me.

This retreat is the opportunity for you to explore all aspects of Ashtanga Yoga, deepen your practice, gain new perspectives and draw inspiration. I want you to feel empowered and strong by learning how to use yoga to improve your health, life and relationships.

In my retreats I meet students where they are. Beginners and more experienced practitioners can coexist and profit from personalised instructions catered to their needs. If you are a beginner, after this retreat you will have the knowledge and tools necessary to start building a self practice. If you are already experienced I will help you consolidate, reach further, get unstuck and realise how much more you are capable of.

Every time I leave India, both my heart and mind are full. My goal is for you to leave this retreat the same way.

A journey of personal growth and at the same time an opportunity to escape, explore and evolve, this retreat is for all those who are seeking “something more”.

Frequently asked questions

How do I get to Serifos?
plus icon

You should fly to Athens, Greece. Serifos is 2 hrs away by ferry from there.

We will take the ferry together from the port of Piraeus in the morning of the first day of the retreat around 8am. We will meet at the ferry 30 mins before departure.

The return ferry leaves from Serifos around 1pm and should arrive back in Piraeus around 3pm.

You should allow one day prior & after the retreat for traveling and book two extra nights in Athens.

Do I need to book ferry tickets?
plus icon

No, ferry tickets are included in the retreat price. We make a group booking (Piraeus-Serifos / Serifos-Piraeus) for all participants.

However, if you are planning to either arrive to Serifos earlier, reach Serifos from another island or if you wish to extend your stay on Serifos or any other island and therefore the ferry schedule does not suit you, you are free to organise your ferry trip yourself.

Please note that there will not be any refunds in case you will not use the pre-booked ferry tickets.

Do I need to book accommodation in Athens?
plus icon

Most likely yes. Due to the ferry schedule you should allow one day prior & after the retreat for traveling and book two extra nights in Athens.

In some cases you might be able to catch a late flight on your return but there should be a minimum of 5 hours between the arrival of the ferry in Piraeus and your flight.

You can have a look at the ferry schedule on this Website.
