Greece

Spiritual Experience

Description

The island with all 92 beaches, typical welcoming Greek hospitality and not too far from Athens makes for the perfect location to host annual Yoga retreats.

These classes will focus on the primary series, covering fundamentals of the Ashtanga method. Focusing on aspects such as breath, bandhas (locks), drishti (gaze) and vinyasa. Each class will close with pranayama (breathing techniques) and a well-earned Savasana (final relaxation).

In the afternoons I will be teaching a slow Yin practice. These classes will be a designed to balance to the Ashtanga led practice. A Yin Yoga practice holds the postures for 2-5 minutes. This allows the practitioner to really focus on the mental and breath bodies. This complimentary practice uses principals of the meridian lines to stimulate and enhance the flow of energy throughout the body.

There will be plenty of downtime between classes to explore the magnificent beaches and a half day trip to Chora, the main town of Kythnos is also included.

Greece really is the most ideal setting for a Spiritual Retreat.
