About the event

What better combination than Yoga & Climbing in the limestone cliff crags of Kalymnos, the world's climbing mecca? Yoga will help you improve your physical and mental climbing abilities  and climbing will help you understand the meaning of living the moment.

Wake up with an invigorating Vinyasa practice on the sun deck to open and prepare the body for the day ahead, then enjoy a healthy breakfast from our panoramic terrace gazing over the blue waters of the Aegean sea. Tie up your shoes, pack your gear and we go climbing at some of the best crags on the planet which are just a short hike up from the villa, or max 15 minutes by car (Kalymnos has over 2,500 sport climbing routes suitable to all different levels of skill); learn about safe belaying, climbing techniques, knots, rope handling, and experience the thrill of climbing until your fingers are ready to fall off. After such a day, either stop for a dip in the crystal blue waters of the many beautiful beaches or have a siesta and do nothing. Towards the evening, we take a moment to restore sore muscles with a yoga session designed to stretch climber's muscles and promote relaxation, and finally enjoy a well-deserved Greek dinner either at the villa while watching the sunset or alternatively at one of the many local tavernas.

Wake up the next day and repeat it all over again.

Experience level required:

The panorama of routes in Kalymnos is so wide that it offers something for every skill level of climbing, so we can accommodate different levels within the same group. It is highly recommended to have basic knowledge of safe belaying technique and basic climbing experience.

Loukas Dourdurekas - our experienced & professional climbing guide

Passionate about introducing people to this sport, adamant about safety, thoroughly knowledgeable and able to guide each person to progress from a place of comfort. His enthusiasm is contagious and his steadiness lends you a sense of deep security. A big plus is that Loukas is not only a top Greek climber, but he's a local Kalymnos resident, so rest assured he will always take us to the best climbing spots, away from the crowds.

Giada Rocca  - our lovely yoga teacher:

As a yoga teacher and an enthusiastic climber myself, I was immediately attracted by the idea of creating an adventure week which would combine the physical and mental aspects of yoga practice with climbing, the one enhancing the other one and vice versa. With climbing one must be fully focused on the moment and it becomes the practice of feeling alive which is so often the goal of yoga. In addition, I will design the classes specifically for the climbing and restoration of the body each evening.
