Mount Parnassus and the Corycian Cave
Your sunrise yoga sessions takes place at Mount Parnassus overlooking the spectacular landscape of Delphi. Mount Parnassus and the Corycian Cave has a significant correlation to greek mythology. Many of the myths were played out in or around the area of the Corycian Cave which might explain the unique energy it has. Inside the Corycian Cave you’ll go through guided meditations and get a numerological reading. The reading gives you the opportunity to get to know yourself and your life’s purpose and is done by professor in pythagorean numerology, Eleftherios Argyropoulos.

In the cooking classes your instructor guides you through every step of creating your meal and at by the end of the class you enjoy your meal with a glass of wine.
Your teacher is a former professional dancer and he teaches you the history of Zorba. When you have the background straight you get to feel like a local when you dance the traditional Zorba dance to greek music. Afterwards you’re free to show off your Zorba-skills in one of the local taverns.
