Yoga and meditation retreat, June 2nd – 7th
This yoga and meditation retreat is open to all levels and will create an opportunity to deepen and explore your yoga practice. Our yoga practice emphasizes the correct use of the body, therefore developing core strength and body awareness in the postures. The aim is not to achieve particular positions rather to engage the body and the breath in a dynamic way to reconnect with its aliveness and power. The postures have a beneficial impact in the whole body, toning muscles, ligaments, joints and nerves, stimulating circulation and improving overall health.
Your yoga teacher Inalu has been practising yoga and meditation for 15 years. Prior to yoga she trained in dance but once she discovered yoga it became her passion. She trained at the Iyengar Institute in the UK and India. Later she followed the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli and also studied Thai Massage and Shiatsu. This way she widened her perspective on yoga and brought deeper understanding into how body, mind and emotions interrelate.
Your beautiful retreat home is set in magical surroundings with stunning views to the sea with two swimming pools and a choice of spacious and shaded terraces for eating and sunbathing, all within the old walled monastery garden of olive, orange and lemon trees.
