FOOD & YOGA w ZOJA
September 1-7, 2019
This retreat is created for an intimate group of 8.
Best for a private group, couples or besties.
All accommodation is at the magical place of Alisideri Studios.
Vaggelis, the private chef of Alisideri, will prepare 2 extraordinary meals for this special group (the food is all locally sourced including the fish). Along with the dinners, Vaggelis has filled each room with nourishing breakfast and snack foods. All keeping with the local traditions of Folegandros.
Tilla, the owner of Alisideri, will host a cultural tour of the Folk Museum in the village of Ano Meria. She will provide inside knowledge of this sacred ancient island.
Zoja will be your guide to daily yoga practice which takes place at Anemi hotel, and includes meditation, 3 hikes and 4 dinners in the quaint, cinematic village of Chora. This retreat is all about being together and discovering the island of Folegandros - allowing its mysticism to do the work, as we work together on opening ourselves up to listening and surrendering to power that is Greece.
Who is Chef Vaggelis?
Vaggelis comes from a lineage of farmers from Central Greece. His grandfather taught him about the secrets of the land, how to cook, and grow food naturally. In his early 20’s he moved to Italy where he opened a small specialized Greek souvlaki restaurant. After half a decade in Italy he decided he wanted to learn more about the culinary art of Greece, especially the Cyclades, so he took off to the islands to discover local materials, recipes, and traditional know-hows. The island of Sifnos is where Vaggelis perfected his craft in working with fish, and the island of Folegandros is where he decided to share his talent of cooking the fish of the day as a private chef and part owner of Alisideri Studios.
