The Meet Market - The Association of Greek Archaeologists

Keeping with tradition, before we all head off on our vacations and much needed city breaks, we are getting together for one last Meet Market of the summer season at the Association of Greek Archaeologists. Set in an ever-so-enchanting garden in the city center, this is one of our all time favorite venues… surrounded by flowers and shade… right next to the Thisio Metro… and with a direct view to the Acropolis.

SUP Yoga In Athens

Lynn Roulo is bringing her Kundalini yoga skills to the sea this month. And what better way to practice yoga during the summer than on a stand-up paddle board! As Lynn says, "I can’t think of a better place than Greece for SUP Yoga! The water is warm, clean and clear, and the conditions are ideal since the sea is usually pretty flat. If there are waves, they are really gentle."
