EASTER YOGA RETREAT 2015
This year, we propose an alternative Easter holiday week: a Yoga Retreat in the beautiful Cycladic island of Tinos, in the Aegean Sea, Geece!
We have the opportunity to escape from everyday life for a few days of relaxation, rejuvenation and detoxification, combined with introduction / emersion in Yoga, as an exercise for the mind and the body, as well as a life’s philosophy.
The Retreat will be housed at the traditional rooms “Anemismata Apartments” and the accommodation will be by two persons, in two-room apartments.
Excellent Mediterranean vegetarian food with pure, locally produced, fresh materials, free time for relaxation with the possibility of exploring the unique interior and the beaches of the island, getting to know new people with a common vision and goals and positive energy and, above all, a full Yoga program (which refers to corresponding Retreats in India) by an inspired Teacher, make the conditions for a unique experience that can lead to a life changing experience.
Our hostess at “Anemismata” is Miranda, a musician, graphic designer, physical education teacher, traveller, cinephile, mom and yogini, who, along with her Tinian partner, runs the family business.
Her love for Tinos and the life-changing experience she had on a trip for Yoga in India, inspired her to create the project “Tinos (Re)Treats”, which aims to propose Retreats of various themes, combined with one or more activities, and the high-level gastronomy offered in Tinos.

TASSOS ANTONOPOULOS – YOGA INSTRUCTOR
Tassos had been interested in the esoteric sciences and practices from an early age, but it was the profound teachings of Yoga, and especially Karma Yoga, which transformed his life.
Devoted to the path, he deepened through different ways and approaches on Yoga and Meditation, the leading one being Vipassana Meditation, and studied Ancient Sanskrit Philosophy. As a musician, he deepened in Yoga singing (Kirtan) and Yoga of the transcendental sound (Nada Yoga). He has been certified by the Yoga Alliance, and his teaching combines the four main Yogas (Raja, Jnana, Karma, Bhakti).
