Through the island of light Crete we reconnect with ourselves. Yoga units for our all our chakra, 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
To highlight this retreat there is wonderful food .both trad.Cretan and Ayurveda Indian to balance through our diet as well..The traditional cooking of our Chef Siddhart will give you insight in both cuisines,,,, the Cretan diet is one of the healthiest of the planet ..you will travel through Culinary experiences each day and feel healthy and nourished..
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.
In the afternoon sessions with Pranayama, Yoga & Meditation (Soundbath ) we connect with the chakras and the 4 elements fire, water, earth, air through the gong and Tibetan singing bowls of Asiminas (Soundhealer)
The vibrations of the bowls generate Alpha & Theta waves, they bring us to a level where the mental does not work, i.e. the awakening of our thoughts, the Emotional does not work, ie no influence of our emotions and desires. The sounds lead you into completely new levels of consciousness. Part of the the sound journeys are supported with physical exercises ,Nada Yoga,that are suitable for each element.
