Breath of Life Yoga philosophy

The great and priceless gift (breath) is equally shared in all the creatures of nature. The way someone utilizes this gift makes a difference in the quality of life. The aim of the programs are:

  • To share knowledge and techniques that facilitate the stream of breath and prana (vital energy) in your daily life
  • To comprehend the functions of human existence
  • To gain physical strength and well being
  • To enjoy a harmonic and happy relationship
  • To teach the yogic knowledge to those who want to be trainers

Life is a journey if you are lucky, you will able to find a path to follow. Yoga is the path that can lead you on a journey of discovering your self. It's your decision how far away you want to go on this path. Yoga unites your individual self with the higher truth.

The most people in the west, practice yoga for physical exercise to gain fitness and reduce stress but working with the body and getting physical health, the nervous system affected positively and automatically drives the mind in peace.

Some people are ready to go deeper, studying yoga philosophy, practicing meditation and exploring the real purpose of life. For some other people is just enough to get a strong and healthy body. In any case, the benefits are undoubted.

Retreat location

Breath of Life Yoga chooses to base its retreat in Kalypso Cretan Village, situated on the old coast of Karavos. Kalypso Cretan Village is about four kilometers from Plakias fishing Village and 30 kilometers from Rethymno City at the south coast facing the Libyan Sea. The location is holding an area between two immense wind tunnels, the gorges Selia and Kourtaliiotiko gorge.

The unique energy of the location, in the middle of nature, creates a positive aura attracting those who are inclined to introspection. If you want to meet the challenges of understanding that the awakening of consciousness is imperative, if you wish to search for a deeper meaning, escaping from the alienation of daily routine, if you want to learn, or just to sit and relax if you want to feel the joy of an environment where nature helps your body, mind, and spirit, this is the right place for you.

The ancient myth about Karavos, the old coast

A natural park, where vertical suspended rocks, insulate a private strategic place to observe the middle of the Mediterranean sea and form a fiord in the sea. It used to be a starting place for quick visits, where 300 years ago was a landmark of pirates. In this area, 5000 years ago was the kingdom of the mythical queen Kalypso, who gave her hospitality to the heroic Ulysses for seven years. In the exotic beach of Preveli, very close to Kalypso, the God Zeus hid the princess Europa in his warm erotic nest, when he stole her from Finiki.
