Ellas Retreat Yoga Holiday Greece Program

In this retreat, you will receive a complete Kundalini yoga program. After the retreat, you will have enough knowledge and experience to continue by yourself. If you are already practicing Kundalini yoga, you will receive higher techniques.

Style of Kundalini yoga

Kundalini yoga belongs to Tantra yoga and is clearly defined in ancient tantric texts. The style is influenced by Hatha yoga and Kriya yoga and make these different practices compatible with each other. In this retreat, you will receive personal guidance. Kundalini yoga is a serious practice so it is important to be cautious. For this reason, the practice will be adjusted to the capacity of each individual.

Structure of the retreat

Every morning you will receive a guided meditation and a full Kundalini yoga class with all the necessary teachings. In the afternoon, the same class will be repeated individually by everyone in the presence of the teacher and personal adjustments will be given. In the evening, there will also be a guided meditation. During the day you will have some time for relaxation, beach and exploring the nature.

The retreat includes Serva (service) that means everyone helps with cooking and keeping Ellas Retreat Centre clean.

The main content of the Kundalini yoga retreat is a systematic way of activating the Kundalini Shakti. The following techniques are used for this purpose. These are asanas, pranayamas, bhandas, mudras, chakra meditations, mantras and dharanas. You are not expected to have any knowledge of these techniques to be able to participate, during the retreat you will receive all you need to know.

Bhajans

If you wish to develop devotion, singing mantras and devotional songs elevate the energies and open the heart. Bhajans belong to Bhakti yoga.

Serva.

As part of the yoga practice, you are expected to help with the daily tasks so the retreat can run smoothly. Cleaning the rooms, cooking, cutting vegetables etc. Serva belongs to Karma yoga.

Location

Ellas Retreat Paleros, where the event takes place, is located in a small village at the Ionian Sea close to the island of Lefkada. It lies at the base of a spectacular rocky mountain and it is surrounded by sandy beaches. The village is not the main tourist attraction and this is that makes it so inviting. The month of October is early autumn and there is still a chance to enjoy the velvet summer as we call the summer days on autumn.
