Yoga and hiking holiday in Sifnos

If you are looking for that perfect Greek island with a balance of beautiful beaches, white Cycladic villages, low-impact tourism and maybe the best food in the Cyclades, then look no further than Sifnos. Less than three hours from Athens by high-speed or five hours by normal ferry, Sifnos is easy to get to and you may never want to leave.
In our Yoga and hiking holiday, we will explore Sifnos by foot, using its many trails that are perfect to discover this beautiful island off the beaten track.
Each day we will have a dynamic hatha yoga class in the morning, then a scrumptious breakfast buffet, we will then leave for a hike and return on time for a dip in the ocean, a softer yin yoga class in the evening and a delicious healthy dinner.

Paloma started practising meditation 20 years ago, guided by a desire to understand human nature. Passionate about the relationship between science and spirituality, she studies Physical Sciences, and later, she works for the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN), located in Geneva.

At the same time, she trained as a therapist in various energy techniques and therapies, and collaborates with the meditation instructor Javier de Salas as an assistant, in retreats and workshops in Spain, the United Kingdom, Japan, Hong Kong and Bali, including the Asia Yoga Conference and the Om Yoga Show, in London .

She immerses herself in the practice of yoga and trainned as a Sama Yoga teacher, a soft and deep style, which combines classic Hatha yoga asanas with Chi Kung postures and mantras, and as a yin yoga teacher.

Guided by her love for yoga and meditation, she founded Shama Retreats, as a conscious life project, where she shares spaces for practice, rest and connection.

Laura has been teaching yoga since 2011 and practicing for more than 18 years. Before becoming a full time travelling yoga teacher, she worked as an interpreter in Brussels. Yoga helped her balance a stressful job and slowly took more and more space in her life.

In 2016 she decided to follow her passion for yoga to not only travel the world, but to keep learning, understanding and studying the meaning of yoga. She spends extended periods of time in India practicing with her teachers and spending time in ashrams (mainly Isha in the South of India).

Yoga and meditation has helped her immensely in her life, and she is blessed to be able to share the gift of yoga and to help people find their path. She is truly passionate about helping people find their inner peace and calm by bringing them powerful and effective yoga techniques. One of her most important missions is to help busy people find true relaxation by organising yoga retreats and holidays designed to get them in tune with their true self, connect with nature and find a community of like-minded souls. Laura is also an expert in Greece and speaks fluent Greek. She will give you insights into the Greek culture, history and language, and anything you always wanted to know about this magnificent country. An experience not to be missed!
