Yoga Retreat Greece

Through the island of light Crete, we reconnect with ourselves. Yoga units for our chakras, asanas, pranayama, meditation and mantras (we sing at the beginning and end of the lesson) accompany and support us. We open our heart chakra more and more, balance it and feel the deep energy of love that emanates from this center. We will find out who we really are, rest in our hearts and spread love and light into the world

Program

“Yoga for me is a state of mind and a whole lifestyle, that’s why I teach in a way that includes the heart, the mind, the soul, as well as the physical body.”

The highlights of this retreat is one beach yoga class with Gong & Tibetan singing bowl meditation and dinner together, you have a daily time for going to the beach in between the asana classes morning and evening, the availability of Reiki, lots of massages, and the true opening of your heart, biological yogic food for your daily health, and detoxing the mind and body for finding who you really are.

Meditation, pranayama, and asanas will be from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. followed by breakfast. After there is free time for the beach and more.

In the afternoon sessions with Pranayama Yoga and Meditation we connect with the four elements fire, water, earth, air through the gong and singing bowls of Asiminas (Soundhealer)

The vibrations of the bowls generate Alpha and Theta waves, they bring us to a level where the mind does not work, i.e. the awakening of our thoughts, the Emotional does not work, i.e. no influence of our emotions and desires. The sounds lead you into completely new levels of consciousness. The sound journeys are supported by physical exercises, Nada Yoga, that are suitable for each element.

Mantra Chanting is

  • A practice that allows anyone, including non-musicians, to experience the many life-enhancing benefits of singing. A way for us to connect with the community, to feel a part of a vital, larger whole.
  • A judgment-free space, where we can come home to ourselves.
  • A powerful tool for self»exploration, self-improvement, and conscious evolution.
  • An elevated space where we can activate powerful energetic archetypes that serve us in our lives.
  • A way for us to get out of our heads, to be liberated from the prison of thought.
  • An opportunity to connect with the power of a living tradition that stretches back for thousands of years.
  • A means to directly experience ourselves as Vibrational, energetic beings.

We will learn also more about Mantras (sound)

“Nada Brahma” – the world is sound and sing together one evening. Kirtan is the repetitively chanting of holy names. It is a beautiful way to open into Bhakti yoga.

Note: Except for Wednesday , there will be a free afternoon.

Included excursions

To the beach for one afternoon class and sound healing with Tibetan bowls and dinner together.

Location

This retreat will take place in Amiras, Crete, Greece. Amiras, a mountain village on the south side of Crete. The area has the quietness of the mountains in the back and the vastness of the Lybian sea in front. The energy is very special and calming.

You can go trekking in the woods (only pine forest on the island ) and mountains or visit some of the most beautiful beaches on Crete. The area here is still like Crete many years ago, with empty beaches and little villages where you can bath naked or stay in front of a tavern, with no extra charge of sunbeds and such. This place is 60 kilometers from Heraklion airport.
