Type of Trip
Surrounded by the natural beauty of the island of Kalymnos, this 5 day trip is ideal for people who are looking to retreat, relax and recharge.
During this trip you will get to combine the thrill of rock climbing with the relaxation and serenity of yoga. Hence giving you a full, all encompassing experience. It is also a very accessible experience as well because the area you will get to climb is not too difficult and is open to climbers from a 5a to 6c level.
The connection between rock climbing and yoga is a seamless one. It combines peace of mind with focus of body. And during this trip you will get to exercise both your mind and body until they are in a state of perfect harmony. Moreover, you will get to enjoy this experience in one of the most beautiful islands in the world, Kalymnos.
During the climbing portion of the trip we will help you improve your rock climbing techniques. We will also assist you in gaining a better understanding of the mental aspect of this beautiful activity. And when you are not climbing, you will get to enjoy 6 separate 90 minute yoga sessions. The sessions will involve meditation, stretching and muscle toning, as well as stress reduction and breathing techniques.
During this amazing journey, you will immediately see that the relationship between yoga and rock climbing is a profoundly symbiotic one. On this trip, you will learn how to reduce stress while clinging to an enormous stone wall. And if you can be at peace under that circumstance, you can be at peace under any circumstance!
So send me a request, come to Kalymnos, and let me guide you on this exceptional journey.

About the Guide
After nearly 10 years of mountaineering in Chamonix, I decided to dedicate myself to rock climbing.
In 2005, after one year intensive training, he got the french national sport’s instructor certificate for rock climbing (BEES escalade).
I have been exploring the crags of France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Canada and China. I finally decided to set up his climbing school in the island of Kalymnos (Greece). The beautiful landscapes, the endless sunshine and the vast climbing potential of the island convinced me to settle here from my first visit.
Since then, climbers from all over the world came to share his passion and to take avantage of his experience to improve their rock climbing skills. I have opened many new routes both in Kalymnos and Telendos from 4 to 9a. I climb 8a on-sight and red-point up to 8c. I did most of the routes of the island and always has new projects to red point!
