Rekindle Yoga Retreat | October 2022
'A 3-Day Yoga Retreat - Rekindle your inner spirit and radiate your inner light!
07.10.22 - 10.10.22
With Petros Kobogiorgas & Angeliki Ksona.
Rekindle your inner spirit and radiate your inner light!
“Where the most beautiful wildflowers grow, there, man’s spirit is fed and poets grow” – inspired by this quote by Henry David Thoreau, we have created a special retreat to uplift our spirit through the practice of yoga.
The retreat aims to:
- Reintroduce us to ourselves: unite body and mind on and off the mat, for yoga, above all, is the study of the Self.
- Explore sounds: the sound of our breath is the music we sing to the world. Through pranayama and chanting powerful mantras we find expression and share the feelings springing from the heart.
- Discover ancient Indian wisdom: Great Heroes, powerful Kings, venerable Rishis and almighty Gods come alive during our asana practice and narrate their stories in kirtan circles.
The retreat is open to anyone who wishes to take a short break from daily routine and marvel at the beauty of nature in full bloom, while also experience moments of yoga with oneself. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced practitioner, you will find different meaning in participating in the various practices of the retreat.
After all, life itself can alone rekindle life!
