Santosha Yoga & Kirtan Retreat
Time & Location
About the Event
Our retreat will be hosted in "Il Nido Wellness Retreat", a beautiful private villa situated in the northeast side of the island high up in the mountain where the eagles build their nests. This fact provides an astonishing view of the Aegean while the nearest beach is only as far as a ten-minute drive.
Our day will start with a three-hour yoga workshop.
The open yoga shala faces the sunrise and it is an ideal spot for guided Sun Salutation using mantras and the sound of the harmonium. After that Alexandra Sotiropoulou will guide you to a journey of exploration of the movement of the spine, suitable for all levels of experience and Antaratma Thodoris Chiotis will help you set the foundations or expand your meditation practise using breathing, mantras and visualization.
Following the morning class, we will have breakfast in the beautiful garden, and then we can have much time to ourselves, exploring the island's wonderful beaches and crystal clear waters. Shortly after that, we will enjoy our vegetarian dinner in the villa, lovingly prepared by our private cook who will be using local products and greek recipes.
The day will end with meditation and kirtan.
The practices that will be taught during the days are the following:
Sun Salutation with the sound of the harmonium and the Surya mantras
