Plitra bay in the Laconic gulf in Laconia is the home of Porto Grana, our new exciting site for relaxing and fueling up with positive energy and great raw vegan food!
We chose the name that directly relates to the history of this amazing place, as by the word “grana” the Venetians called the special dye kermes or “prinokokki” which was exported from the port of Ancient Asopos which belonged to Monemvasia city state of the time.
Porto Grana Raw Yoga Hiking Retreat is an exclusive centre offering on-going small group lifestyle retreats. We serve discerning guests a unique and healing combination of a yoga intensive coupled with a delicious cleansing raw vegan diet, daily hiking adventures and inspiring evening discussions in the magnificent Laconian gulf.
While you leave your alarm clocks, over-scheduled, noisy, modern lives behind, you will slip back into the natural circadian rhythms of your birthright in our pristine location. Retreat, relax, rest, repair, renew, re-discover and replenish your most original self.
Our Daily program includes:
Group yoga instruction (6 mornings a week, beginners to advanced)
Three locally grown and fresh picked yummy vegan raw cleansing meals
Fresh herb teas
Hiking in the hills and mountains of Monemvasia county
Raw food prep classes
Evening discussions/DVDs on a variety of subjects ranging from Yoga, Cutting edge nutrition, Ayurveda, and Deep Green living
We offer a 100% RAW plant-based, nutritionally balanced, alkaline diet of locally grown tropical fruits, sprouts, veggies, nuts and seeds prepared in simple yet delicious recipes. Our meal plan is supremely nourishing, cleansing and ultimately very satisfying.
Some guests may want to add water fasting days to their retreat.
Include daily cycling, nature walks and hikes in pristine beaches and gorges with sparkling rivers and small scale waterfalls. Afternoons are open to help in the garden, chill in a hammock, read, write, draw, meditate and nap. Relaxing Thai massages are available at reasonable rates.
Flying into Kalamata: The airport is just off the city of Kalamata. Flights may arrive late night. We can recommend a hotel to stay at near the airport, or you can choose your own in Kalamata. Depending on your flight, the following morning we will arrange car/shuttle pickup to our property (an amazing 2 and a half hour drive thru the historic mountain of Taygetos) arriving at Porto Grana Raw Yoga Hiking Retreat in Plitra by mid-day. Since many flights leave Kalamata early morning, you may need to spend the night near the airport on your return as well. Please keep this in mind while planning your trip.
Flying into Athens airport: A car will pick you up and bring you straight to our site after a 4 hours journey through the Peloponnese passing from the city of Sparta.
