8 to 15 -day
Solo Mandala Immersion Yoga Retreat
Available from May 20– July 31 & from August 19 – October 5
From the mandala schedule, you can choose the classes you wish to take and leave others. Take a chance to nurture and center yourself with Yoga and the beauty of nature in this magnificent location in the Cycladic village of Naousa at Paros Island-Greece.
This Yoga Immersion is both personal assessment with the teacher and group classes during the whole period of your stay with the aim of embodying Yoga as Lifestyle and integrating a consistent practice in your daily life. It comprises a tailored practice for you to take home.
Anapnoe & Yoga Shala Paros offer an integral practice that cultivates presence and embodiment. The program includes group classes all day and personal guidance with experienced teachers. There is time to rest and enjoy the island & access to a variety of alternative wellness sessions and massages.
Yoga sessions are rejuvenating and balancing practices (solar-lunar). The emphasis of the classes is on fluidity through the breath and awareness through the body. In every class, we move creatively through all groups of Asana creating full body transformation, circulation and centring. Chakra work, Pranayama, Mantra, Yoga Nidra and Meditation are integrated within the practice.
Classes are in the English language. Daily morning practice 3 hr and afternoon additional 1,5 hr. Enough time left to enjoy the island, the sea, the sun and the Greek relaxed way of living.
Mats and other props used are available at Yoga Shala, you don’t need to take anything with you. Practices will be at Yoga Shala in Naousa village. Practices outdoors will be scheduled during the retreat.
We begin with awareness through the body-mind because it’s important to start with the foundation where we understand not only how to build the yoga pose from the ground up, but to stand on our own two feet. We learn to connect to our breath, observe our body and understand the relationship we have with ourselves and the impact our thoughts have on our health, wellness and life
I designed this practices to meet the student where they’re at. For some of you, your interest might be getting stronger and more flexible and in that case, there is value in this practices for you. If your interest is to understand a little bit more about the mind-body connection and the impact that our thoughts have on our health and wellness, then there’s an aspect of this practice that will meet that particular need. If your interest is to move into a deeper level of emotional healing and to even open yourself to a more committed and connected relationship with your Self then there’s also aspects of this practice that will speak to you.
Wherever you are at, the invitation is just to simply breathe and be present with your experience, to open into something else, into something new. Then this practice will allow you to step into the next aspect of your own exploration.
These practices are meant to help us to feel better about who we are, to release tension, to open ourselves up to a greater possibility. to understand, love who we are and to connect to the innate divine that already resides within ourselves.
