The day starts with morning meditation and breath practice, following this is an hour and a half long yoga class in the beautiful studio with a panoramic view of sea and the mountains. The rest of the day is free for you to explore, swim or rest. In the evening there is a deeply relaxing restorative practice to ease every last bit of tension from your body and mind. You will see improvements in your strength and flexibility. A one hour private yoga lesson is included in the price. All classes are optional so you can rest or practice as much as you feel to.
Sound as vibration affects the mind and physical body at a deep level, allowing deep-seated tension, anxiety and stress to gently and easily melt away. Sound and movement work very well together, as sound reaches the parts of our being that movement cannot. Musician and sound Healer Alistair Smith will lead at least two sound baths on this retreat as well as providing meditative sound accompaniment to the evening restorative yoga classes. Also included in the holiday is a private sound healing treatment with Alistair.
Kerry and Wendy are our hosts at the Centre, they have been hosting retreats for over twenty years and have a deep knowledge of the nature, historical sites and mythical stories of the surrounding land. There is a local swimming platform about fifteen minutes from the Centre and the nearest beach is another 20 minutes walk beyond the local fishing village of Agios Nikolaos. If you wish there are opportunities to go horse riding, visit historical sights or go walking further afield. However, most people choose to simply relax, unwind and “just be” in nature.
A delicious brunch spread is offered after the morning yoga class. On the first and last evenings of the retreat, we’ll have dinner at Spirit of Life as well. On the other evenings you are free to explore the lovely local tavernas or cook meals at your apartment.
