North Fork Yoga Shala Retreats

Here at North Fork Yoga Shala, in Greenport, we are really proud of our expanding offering of several retreats both near and far as well as the variety of workshops and trainings that we hold both with our own instructors and talented guest instructors and facilitators.

Our retreats, currently led pre-dominantly by Claire Copersino, our Founder and Director, span the globe, and range from a few wonderful days within driving or public transport distance to further afield in Mexico, Costa Rica, various locations in Europe, northern Africa and several in the planning stage that will be further afield.  It is often the case that once someone has joined one retreat, they catch the bug, so to speak, and attend another .. and another .. and another.  Don’t say you weren’t warned J

It is truly magical to watch new connections form on our retreats, new yoga-family bonds be created and very much a family vibe set in within the first 24 hours amongst our small, intimate groups wherever we may be calling home on our retreats.  These connections then grow once back home and you now know that person who was once just a face across the studio.   As a result the community and family feel of the studio just continues to deepen and expand and sweeps everyone who walks through our doors up into the glow.

Claire Copersino Yoga Retreats, trainings, and workshops are curated based upon suggestions from you as well as initiatives from our team of instructors and we always welcome your thoughts, ideas and feedback.

Overlooking the Aegean Sea and Filizi Beach, Okreblue Eco Yoga Retreat sits on the relatively untouched Santa Maria seaside, located on the tranquil peninsula of Paros Island, Greece.  Okreblue has been designed to be in total harmony with the natural surroundings, close to nature in it’s raw purity to offer deeply nourishing conditions that provide a respite from the busyness of life while encouraging your own replenishment, rejuvenation and restoration into a greater sense of wholeness, equanimity and happiness.

Local Parians, Sasy & Angelo have been developing Okreblue for over 15 years on land that has been in Angelos family for over a century. They have preserved the natural landscape of the family land, and developed Okreblue with minimal impact on the natural surroundings. Okreblue is an oasis, far away from the busier, more touristed Greek Islands where Sasy & Angelo share their love of nature, clean and nourishing food and a simple healthy way of life.

Our days will begin with sunrise over neighboring Naxos, perhaps a sunrise swim (?) and a light snack and coffee/tea before a spacious yoga practice in our dedicated Shala. Okreblues chefs focus on fusing Ayurvedic principles with the character of traditional Greek cuisine. The delicious meals are organic and plant-based with ingredients mostly sourced from Okreblues organic garden as well as locally on Paros and around Greece.

 

We will enjoy a hearty, delicious brunch after morning practice overlooking the Aegean, contemplating how much (or little we might get up to in the afternoon. Massages will be available, as will several excursions during the week which you can join should you choose. Okreblue is located on the beach … perfect for walks, swims, napping and sunning. Late afternoon yoga will be gentle and restorative ushering us into a wonderful supper, watching the evening (and maybe the moon if we’re lucky) rise.

 

 

 

Our stay and sleep will be in comfortable, rustic simplicty. The rooms are open, naturally lit, and purposefully. minimal to simplify your experience during our retreat.  Most rooms face the seaside and are a stones throw away from Filizi Beach and the glorious Aegean Sea. Every room has an ensuite bathroom and is available for private or double occupancy. There are a couple of rooms suited for triple occupancy which is particularly well-suited to a more economical (and fun) retreat experience.  We do have two large sunny and very special spacious studio apartments available on the rooftop of Okreblue. They both offer sweeping views of the Aegean, one of neighboring Naxos, spacious balconies and are suited for double occupancy (or private for a special treat for yourself). Each has its own spacious ensuite bathroom.
