The spring sun of Crete is calling you – leave the hectic of your daily life for a week and give your body, mind and soul the possibility to find its natural balance.
Retreat The goal of this retreat is to help you unwind, detox, relax and nourish yourself on the physical, mental and emotional level. It will deepen your practice in yoga and meditation as well as help you integrate its principles into your daily lifestyle.
The morning practice with Gabriela will include inspiring dharma talks, silent meditation, creative asana flow, bhakti bhav, music and chanting. In the afternoon classes with Lizzie we’ll focus on the radical pleasure of restorative yoga that Lizzie is famous for as well as on the correct alignment and anatomy of yoga poses. Generally, there will also be lots of fun elements including partner work and different forms of dynamic or Zen meditations. We will discuss yoga philosophy and its relevance in our lives. And of course there are the famous sunset meditations and chanting on the terrace ;-)
This retreat will leave you rejuvenated, deeply relaxed, clear in your purpose + radiating your inner strength and joy which is greatest gift you can make to yourself, your friends, family and this one world we all share.
Ort In the magical, wild landscape of the south coast of Crete lies "Triopetra" – the ‘’Three-rocks’’, a formation of rocks, which gave the place its name. Away from the noise and busyness of city life lies Pavlos’ pension directly on the beach. The practice hall is located above the rooms, all facing the sea. Delicious vegetarian and typically Cretan food comes mainly from the own gardens and is made with love in a sattvic atmoshphere by Pavlos and his family. The healing power of Cretan landscapes will support the process of healing and self - discovery. More information about lodging and boarding: www.kretashala.de
