Food & Diet
Healthy Gut, Light Body, Focused Mind
A big part of attaining any progress in the field of yoga is to understand and alter the how when and what we eat as food. The gut is our second mind and all diseases of the body start with the gut.
At the Alchemist Retreat, we take special care of your diet and your meals in accordance with the principles of Ayurveda that help us achieve better health and an active and focused mind.
Ayurveda explains the principle of digestive fire and its optimization during the day. In alignment with these principles, we serve meals only twice a day - which ensures optimum digestion of food, proper absorption, and rebalancing of the inner functioning of the body. Modern science has labeled this wisdom as Intermittent Fasting and come to the conclusion that it is super healthy for the body.
An expert chef leads the food aspect of the program - with a prior experience in Ayurveda principles and preparing fresh vegetarian meals to aid the yogic process of working on mind and body.
No kinds of Coffee, Tea, Sugar, Drugs, Smoking, or Alcohol are allowed on the premises during the retreat.

The retreat location is on the beautiful islands of Lefkada touted as one of the least touristy and most beautiful islands with mostly mountain and sea terrain. We highly advise hiring a car ( a powerful one ) that can get you going up and down without breaking a sweat. We recommend www.autoeurope.eu for checking offers. Please ensure you have a valid international driving license for driving in Greece. In case you don't like driving, you can send us an enquiry for pick up and drop service.
How to Reach: Nearest Airport - Preveza Aktion Airport ( Code PVK ) - 60 km away. Hereafter you can hire car from right outside the airport or online using Preveza as a pickup point.
Kindly use google and simply put destination as Urania Luxury Villas and take the West Route passing through Athani village on the map. This is more simple than the East route.
If flights to Preveza are not possible then two other options are flying into Corfu, crossing the sea using the ferry and hire a car from Igoumenitsa for a week to come to Lefkada 152 km ( 2 hrs 30 mins ) or Athens and take the bus from there to Lefkada and hire a car from Lefkada. You can alternatively also drive from Athens. It is a 400 km drive that takes approximately 6 hours with multiple tolls on the way.
