Villa Kanitopoulos is located one street away from the seaside and therefore you will have no noises from the tavernas. It has calm and quiet garden/patio. They serve a rich breakfast buffet, included in the price, filter coffee for free all day long and transfer from/to the port/airport. For yoga clients, they offer the possibility to take the breakfast to their room and use it after yoga class. Most people of the yoga courses go here for many years, and are very satisfied. Owners Michalis (Michael) is a very friendly Greek couple who speak good English. The family Konitopoulos is very well known in Greece for their music.
You are welcome to join in our classes, the holiday is suitable for any level of yoga. Whether it is your first introduction to yoga, you are curious, or you are an advanced practitioner or teacher. Everyone can still learn from Oona with her 44 years of experience. For the full seven days and seven nights of the holiday (the eighth day is departure day), there are six morning classes from 10:00 a.m. - 12.30. The class schedule is designed so that those with limited time can travel to and from home in a week. Most of the times we go with the boat 'Rofos', an old fishermans boat/ kaiki now used for tourist trips. Turquoise water, swimming, snorkeling, a drink, some fruit, the perfect day of getaway. There will be a welcome dinner and farewell lunch. The rest of the nights you are free to eat wherever you want, in one of the restaurants beautifully located at the seaside. The traditional Greek kitchen is very suitable for vegetarians. And Aliki is a fishing village, so most of the times the fish you eat was caught that same day.
The yoga course is focused on the physical postures (Asanas) Pranayama (breathing), meditation and on the connection between the mind, the breath and the body. No chanting, no mystification, but gentle exercises to understand the connection between the mind, the breath and the body better. First class is on Sunday morning, the last class on Friday morning. The class schedule is designed so that those with limited time can travel to and from home in a week. At the beginning of the course, on Saturday evening, you will have dinner with the whole group, to get to know each other. The aim after this yoga week is that you don't feel frustrated about your limitations, but that you feel empowered by your abilities!
Oona Giesen started practicing Iyengar Yoga more then 44 years ago, around 1973. She was trained by Agnes Hillen, Margriet Post, Victor van Kooten and, most of all, her mother Jeanne Buntinx, who were trained personally by mr B.K.S. Iyengar and were the founders of the Iyengar Yoga movement in the Netherlands. Oona grew up with yoga. She took her first yoga classes at the house of Margriet Post when she was about 8 years old. Her first yoga holiday, in 1975 in France, with Agnes Hillen-Mineur was the inspiration for what she is doing for more than 24 years now: organizing yoga holidays.
The yoga courses will be held on Paros, one of the most beautiful islands of the Cyclades. The Cyclades are a group of islands in the Aegean Sea, between Athens and Crete, known for its natural beauty and spectacular architecture. Paros is also the most central located island of the Cyclades and ferry boats go daily to different islands. Some of the most beautiful beaches on the island are found in the surroundings in Aliki. Aliki is a small authentic Greek fishing village, with just a few restaurants, but no real nightlife. Yoga and Aliki, the perfect combination to really unwind from your daily stress, relax and enjoy a perfect holiday.
There are many beautiful places on the island. The great thing about Paros is the diverse beaches and villages (towns). They all are different and have their own vibe and visitors. The beaches Farangas and Aliki are well organised and feature beds, parasols and service, whereas the beaches Piso Aliki and Agio Nicolaos are without services, so you can choose the beach that makes you feel comfortable. Below are some options for your free time and extra activities. Some of these options may include additional costs. If you have any inquiry or you would like to make further arrangements, you can do so by contacting the organizer. Simply click on the Send Inquiry button to send a message to Yoga Paros.
To fly to Greece you can choose destinations between Athens, Mykonos or Santorini. From Athens you can fly with Olympic Air or Sky Express to Paros. It takes about 30 minutes and cost about 75 Euro one way. Olympic Air flies 4 times a day during the summer. But seats are limited, so sold out fast; you need to book on time.
Boats go more often from Athens - Paros. If you fly to Mykonos or Santorini, you'll have to take the boat to Paros. The boat from Mykonos will take about 2 hours, from Santorini and from Athens about 4-5 hours. The port of Athens is called Pireaus and you need about 1 hour with the metro or bus 96 from the airport to get there. There is also another port, Rafina, where you can also check for boats to Paros. Rafina is closer to the airport and in summer has plenty of boats going to Paros also.
