Connect to yourself and re-energise in Greece! We all often feel tired, low on energy, drained. It could be so many things that effect our moods, that drag us down. You can choose to stay feeling like: "this is not me", you can accept it and carry on what you do with the same people you do, or you can take some space and think, come back to your senses or even start something completely new to help you figure out what in your life needs changing. This yoga retreat is offered as a way to help you find your balance again, take this step back or simply enjoy yourself for a week away from it all!
During the holiday, you will be accommodated in Andriana's. The apartments are nestled within beautiful grounds, just a stone's throw away from the beach. Each apartment is spacious, with a modern thermostatic air conditioning unit, rain shower, little kitchen and a balcony with some selected rooms having sea views.
Your balcony will overlook our immaculate landscaped garden, with tropical plants and trees. The apartments have hammocks, loungers, and a selection of books for you to read while you relax. If you fancy eating outside with friends, feel free to use the brick barbecue and outdoor dining area.
Come to gorgeous Corfu, in sunny and warm Greece to enjoy the Ionian sea breeze, to taste local food, to move your body, to listen to your soul, to chill on the wonderful sandy beach of St. George or Issos and reconnect with you!
Come to Corfu to recharge. This summer, Athina and Cedric decided to add this "Move and Manifest" yoga retreat to your options of time off and away.
They would like to see it more as "time on" instead, as a week where they really listen to you and help you get clear about your dreams and intentions. To compliment this idea, you will be offered some one-on-one conversations and share some manifestation techniques. You can thrive! Let's work out what's holding you back and what's going to make you shine!!!
No matter what your level of asana practice, you are welcome to come and enjoy yourself. You will be provided with everything you need in order to relax and immerse yourself in daily yoga classes, meditation, breathwork, mantra singing, and more. All are surrounded by stunning sunsets, seaviews, chilling sessions in the "kipo" and, of course, plenty of gorgeous, healthy, freshly cooked, local vegetarian food. Athina's grandma is involved in this... it will be amazing!
Newbie? Intermediate? You are at the right place! It is all about the breath. As long as you can breathe, you can yoga. Take your time. Be present, practice mindfully and carry on being in the moment. The aim is to be using yoga and mindfulness to empower each individual to take a more active role in their self-care, and postures isn’t the only part of yoga. You will use postures to get in the body, you don’t use the body to get into postures, so no matter how advanced or beginner your posture/asana practice, you are perfect.
It is all part of a journey and everyone has all been at the beginning at some point. Please don’t feel like you have to perform, you are coming to yoga to meet yourself, not show your flexibility skills, your strength of your muscles, but instead sharpen your ability to stay with yourself, accepting where you are right now and loving each and every clumsy move along the way.
Are you ready for this yummy experience with Athina and Cedric? It is only a decision away. Let this trip be the beginning of a new routine with you in the centre.
Just come to breathe, relax, meet the sunshine and be happy!
Meditation and mindfulness workshops are possibly the best hour you can give yourself! They are the kind of workshops that you won't need pen and paper for, your won't need to learn anything, perhaps the key principle here is to unlearn a few patterns and behaviors.
During those hours, you will focus around being present, find little basic ideas that help practice mindfully, and accept change. In mindfulness workshops, you don't force things, you allow them to happen. Breathe in and take a moment to feel the cold air touching your nostrils, pause there, breath out, and notice how its quality has changed. How do you expect everything else in life not to change? Nothing is permanent so make sure you enjoy what's worth your enjoyment. Now is the time.
It is beautiful when you find what feels good for your unique body. Yoga practice is not about getting bendy, it is about reuniting with yourself, using your body and mind, noticing their patterns, exploring their limitations, and without judgment playing around with them. In asana workshops, you will focus around a handful of postures and their alignment.
Most practitioners, no matter how advanced, often wonder if they are accessing yoga postures properly. This is an opportunity to dive into foundation, key principles, aims, and sensations of different asanas and searching for the most appropriate way to use those in order to connect better with yourself. Join this workshop during your stay and experience your practice the best way your body needs.
Breathing is the foundation of your life. Naturally breathing becomes the foundation of your yoga practice too. With each inhale, you have the opportunity to create space and with every exhale you can allow your experience to deepen. Kapalabhati, Alternate Nostril Breathing, and other exercises will become more accessible as time goes by and as you get familiar with paying attention to yourself.
In these sessions, you will practice different breathing techniques. You will learn how you can benefit from them, what the different steps are, and you will give yourself time to try and modify them. Come join in for a whole session dedicated to breathing, or you can often get a glimpse of pranayama workshops by joining a meditation or even a yoga practice.
What a wonderful way to reach a meditative state without worrying about your mind getting busy! Mantras help quite the mind and stimulate the endocrine system in such a relaxed and joyful manner. And of course, there are plenty more reasons to sing mantras, but this is not the time to bore you with making a list.
Have you tried it? Mantra singing is so much fun!!! Are you one of these people that lyrics isn't your thing? Well, if so then mantras are going to be your favourite kind of singing!!! You get a few commonly sanskrit phrases, with spiritual content, and you have the opportunity to repeat these Indian jewels over and over, often at different tempos until everybody has got the words and the tune (but not that it actually matters).
It is a chance to enjoy just being with everyone else around you, a wonderful way to connect with the rest of the group, a playful and gentle way to help you focus your attention. Let's play together.
Athina completed her yoga teacher training course at Sampoorna Yoga in Agonda, Goa, India. She has been practicing for the last five years. Returning from India was just the beginning of a new life for her. Having been practicing so many hours every day for a whole month created a habit that helped her realize how happy and lucky, she has been all her life - healthy, able to breathe deep, and surrounded by incredible people. Athina wishes to carry this into her classes and help you find yourself through your own practice.
Yoga is very special to Cedric - it's the connection of breathing, moving, and consciousness. Yoga does not just happen on the mat, for him, yoga is the path to his true self - to freedom. He was certified as an Ashtanga and Vinyasa teacher (500-hour) in India and as an Anusara yoga teacher (200-hour) in Germany. He also assisted four weeks as Karma yogi for ongoing yoga teacher trainings. He finds the full depth of yoga in meditation. Meditation is his foundation and inspiration. He practices sound healing, Kriya yoga and did a 10 days Vipassana meditation at Dhamma Setu, India.
This holiday will take place in Saint George South, at Argyrades in Corfu, Greece. Saint George is located in the stunning southwest coast of Corfu, surrounded by nature, golden sand dunes, the lake of Korission, clear blue and safe sea and endless sunsets.
Healthy food for healthy souls! Yummy and healthy is what a yogi needs. So you will be served delicious vegi/vegan food all day long during this retreat. Breakfast with typical Greek specialties, as well as fresh fruits, nutrient seeds, local honey, and the famous delicious nuts'n'fruits porridge bowls. For dinner, you will go to local tavernas, who cook especially for you.
You will enjoy traditional Greek food as well as international salads full of goodness to serve what your bodies need. Dishes are full of ingredients from local organic farming.
Sound treatments are here to help you release tension, work through blockages, and connect with yourself in a deeper level. During these sound treatments the practitioner utilises the healing aspects of ancient Tibetan techniques and brings them to your body through vibrating singing bowls in the form of waves.
The waves, as created by Tibetan and Crystal singing bowls, are played with clear intensions and directly from the heart. Sound is such a powerful media, as tradition has shown and modern research has come to support, especially when practitioner and patient/client are working towards the same goal or releasing, connecting, clearing, having left concepts and words outside the treatment room, and allowing the vibrations to flow.
Get the most out of your yoga practice. Whether you enjoy the benefits of regular home practice or you join classes once in a while, there is a way to get the most out of each session you give yourself. It is beautiful when you find what feels good for your unique body.
Deepen your knowledge, understanding and sensations with creating a tailor-made class especially for you. Ask for what is it that matters most, try it out with one of Inea Yoga's in-house yoga teachers and take with you a practice that suits your unique body and mindset, with a rhythm that serves your needs and the intensity and difficulty you wish for. They are there to support your experience.
Seeking for a little bit of advice? Athina is here to listen to you. To clarify what exactly it is you are actually seeking advice for and to create a safe environment where this question can evolve into a heartly discussion. %Together, you can dive deep into topics that are linked to your current state of mind and anything that may block you from taking action towards a healthier, happier, more comfortable future. The intention is to allow you to find the space and energy to look deep into the answers you may already have and of course guide you towards other options that you may have crossed out or missed.
Advice will only be given if you feel comfortable with Athina and if you feel it is appropriate. Athina, who leads most of these private consultation sessions is a qualified Msc Psychologist and a British Psychological Society member. Athina puts great emphasis on incorporating mindful techniques where suitable as she is a mindfulness practicioner. Athina has also undertaken CBT and DBT trainings and is also a life coach.
During your free time, you can relax on the beach, enjoy nature, or go out to dance with friends. St. George is a place where you can calm down, find peace, nature, relaxation on the beach - but it is as well a place for activities like biking, hiking, watersports or even going out at night to dance.
If a little bit of fun is what you are looking to help you make this journey more joyful and round, you can find a boat to rent on your own, or share a little adventure with others.
You can create some more action with kite-surfing, or have a blissful moment of calm on a stand-up paddle. Or go crazy on jet skis and fly-boards. It’s all available in a stone’s throw. And if a little work out is what you want but you also like the view of turquoise water, why not take a canoe?
