Transformative Retreat with Chanting, Yoga & Ayurveda

Dear friends,

It is with immense joy, that I share with you our next retreat hosted by our beloved friend, remarkable musical artist and Sanskrit scholar, Gaiea Sanskrit.

Gaiea will be accompanied by Antaratma Chiotis, Vivi Letsou and myself in this unique 4 day transformative retreat. Through Chanting, Yoga and Ayurveda we will reconnect to our hearts


The songs will carry you away, transport you, and give you this connection to some blissful feeling within.



26 September – 30 September 2020 (4 nights)



Zen Rock Mani, an exquisite natural location, nested amongst the olive trees of Peloponnesos and just a few minutes from beautiful greek beaches.

A lush area of Greece, and a state-of-the-art retreat centre gifted with a heart led, devoted & professional team.

About your hosts

Gaiea Sanskrit 

It is a strange occupation to write a biography when all that is past is gone and all that is to come is unknown and yet it is helpful to read about the moments that led up to this one in which you read this now.
Gaiea attended St James School in London where she learned Sanskrit from the age of 4, and went on to read Sanskrit at University of Oxford. She has taught Sanskrit for Yoga London, The Ayurveda Institute, Jivamukti Yoga and East London School of Yoga. Her life is dedicated to further exploring the depth and power of the sounds of Sanskrit. She has combined a love of Sanskrit with exploration of the voice knowing that through connecting with your voice and expression there is a key to connect more deeply with yourself. Gaiea visits India yearly for a month to study with voice and Sanskrit teachers. She performs, writes and records songs, leads regular Kirtan (chanting) and Sanskrit, Philosophy & Meditation workshops in London, and is also a teacher of the Alexander Technique (psycho-somatic work which explores the innate connection between mind and body, heal one, heal both, and heightened awareness of the way you move).
