Yia Mas Retreat 2019
Hellenism, health, and community
Join us in the Cyclades for the first ever Yia Mas retreat!
You’ll move your body, dine on a curated selection of the freshest, best food the island has to offer, and stay in a stunning villa with a view of the Aegean and Keros island… where many of Greece’s ancient Cycladic sculptures were found.
Kristina and Marianthi, who are both of Greek origin and have traveled Greece extensively, are curating an authentic taste of Greek island life for the Yia Mas retreat.
We’ve mapped a magical itinerary. Shared, included activities include yoga, meditation, Greek dance, and a creative photo session to capture that iconic Hellenic aesthetic. You’ll also have the option to take a boat trip to wild Kato Koufonisi, enjoy a signature Yia Mas workshop on Greek herbs as medicine, and dine on fresh food (trust us, we’ve traveled to the island several times to do our culinary “research”).
Attendees are encouraged to bring journals, that forgotten film camera, a book (or two), and shoes that are comfortable for walking. We’ll walk a lot on Koufonisi as you hardly need a car to get around this tiny island.
Prepare to leave this retreat feeling rejuvenated and inspired creatively!

Yia Mas is an event + retreat series and brand dedicated to health, Hellenism, and community. Born in NYC, the event is also hosted throughout the states and now, through our first retreat, in Greece! Yia Mas bridges ancestral philosophies with modern methodologies for an experience that is truly ripe in the moment. Signature Yia Mas events include Greek herbs as medicine, Know Thyself: Understanding the Mind-Body Connection, an exploration of Greek dance as ecstatic movement (with a focus on the history and music, as well), and an exploration of the goddess archetype.
