To awake means nothing else then finding truth…… the journey (this retreat) is about maintaining mental clarity and emotional balance, sustaining present moment awareness and bringing deeper purpose into your life. With the Hatha yoga in this retreat we will work toward creating balance and uniting opposites with a system of physical postures and breathing. In our physical bodies, we develop a balance of strength and flexibility, but we also learn to balance our effort and relax in each pose. Vinyasa Flow artfully connects postures with breath to create a graceful, flowing, and rhythmic practice. Yin yoga is a beautiful practice of surrender that stretches the connective tissue (fascia) in the body by passively holding postures for longer times with gentle pressure. Morning sessions (8-10.00) tend to be more energizing and afternoon classes (5-7.00) are often quite gentle in nature. With this daily combination, you will receive a sense of what it means to embody graceful strength in your life. Be more connected with your real self and make space for it and feel the freedom that is coming from this.
The yoga sessions will take place on the roof terrace overlooking the mind blowing Cretan nature and sea.
