Noosfera Center is a truly great location for our training and is an amazing, serene and very loveable place.
It is in the northern Peloponnese, near Xylokastro. Built in an altitude of 700 meters offers a milder climate and it enjoys superb views of the mountains and the sea. The sea is only 11km (by taxi around 25 euros) from the retreat.
Distance from Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos to Noosfera Estate: 148 Km (circa 2 hours).
Distance from Kiato railway station to Noosfera Estate: 57 Km (circa 50 min). We recommend you take the train from the airport until Kiato which is the last stop and from there a taxi to the retreat that costs less than 50 euros.
It consists of two complexes of buildings. In the first you will find the cosy living room with its amazing view from the bay windows, the lovely dining room, the pergola (overlooking the surrounding mountains and on the horizon the sea) where the summer dining room lies and the kitchen where delicious home-made meals are prepared. Most of the fruits and vegetables come from Noosfera’s own garden.
The lower level has the libraries, and the atmospheric wellbeing section where rejuvenation services for body and face are offered. In the Guesthouse and Seminar Hall of the second building complex are located ten elegant rooms all with private bathroom and equipped with mini-fridges. The very beautifully appointed guest rooms are designed without phones or TVs in order to maximize time for quiet, peaceful reflection and renewal. They have been named after trees, herbs and flowers and are each decorated accordingly down to the last detail – soft pillows on the couch, orthopaedic mattresses, duvets and sheets of excellent quality.
The Yoga / Seminar Hall is light, airy, spacious, comfortable and cool.
The owners Maria and Julia built this property for their own retreats and this shows everywhere with their unique personal touch from the hand painted keys and chairs to the careful consideration of Feng-shui throughout. Their belief is that the person who seeks peace, joy and truth about himself will also be inspired by the surrounding land, the beauty of the mountains and the sea on the horizon, but also by the tastefulness of the area itself.
For more info you can visit the website of the retreat https://www.noosfera.gr/en/.

However, we highly recommend that you complete all of the course as the assignments, case studies and practicum are a large part of the learning process, especially considering the mentoring that that you will receive. You also will lose the possibility of using this 350 hour training as a foundation of the 800 hour training.

Then you will be issued 262 hours of certification of attendance.
10. How does the supervision take place?
The supervision takes place through emails and online meetings.

Our graduates also work in Yoga Studios or in a complimentary capacity in health care centres, physiotherapy centres, and community centres in collaboration with homoeopathists, physiotherapists, psychotherapists, nutritionists etc. But you would have to check your countries specific requirements for certain health care jobs.
13. What if I have to leave for some reason in the middle of the summer training?
You are then welcome to join us the following year to complete your training. But unfortunately we cannot refund the accommodation costs or the tuition.

For lunch the centre will offer a reasonable priced option of a light snack, sandwiches etc or a cooked lunch depending on what you want. Alternatively before you arrive you can buy fruits, bread, nuts etc (there is a fridge in your room) and on your 2 days off you can get some things on your way back from the beach.
15. What other costs am I likely to incur?
In addition to the ‘what is not included’ list above a student must buy their own study materials and have access to a computer or tablet with a good internet connection. They need to be able to convert documents to PDF.
They might need to print the manual sent to you in advance of the residential training in order for you to read it and be better prepared for the training.
