This is a six-day retreat in the Mystical Paradise Island of Samotraki, dedicated to your practice of yoga and meditation! Let us celebrate life and connect with pure nature, wake up the energy of the body and the spirit that resides within, through the ancient science of yoga and dance meditations, let us move to the rhythm within and explore and heal the depths and beauty of our own being! Here you can allow yourself to relax in the welcoming atmosphere of the beautiful Mariva resort and give your senses a taste of beauty and relaxation.
During the retreat, you will be staying at Mariva Yoga Retreat Center. Mariva Yoga retreat center provides beautiful separate rooms in an amazing labyrinth of flowers and garden. Every room has its own bathroom and wi-fi connection. The resort provides different spaces for relaxation and enjoyment.
You will begin your day with a teaching of the basic cleansing procedures in yoga kriyas, Jala neti, cleaning your nose with salt water using a nety pot, extremely helpful in cases of sinusitis, and any kind of breathing problems. If the group is ready, you will continue with sutra nety, cleaning the nostrils with string and kynjal kriya or Vamana dhouty.
This class will start with a short meditation and continue with breathing exercises - different by effect and practice pranayamas, gentle opening of the body and escalate by their difficulty asanas-postures in traditional Indian teaching style, followed by meditation and yoga Nidra or deep relaxation.
There will be an intensive class of flowing asanas connected breathing and in-between Vinyasas. This will work your body flexibility, will make it strong, and will provide intense in-depth detoxification of tissues and muscles. The class will be in the tradition of Pataby Jois.
You will learn bandhas, how to lead your energy higher, some mudras-position of the hand fingers and drishty, points of concentration of eyes during the asana performance. At the end of the practice, there will be meditation and a non-guided relaxation.
Osho's meditations use breathing, dancing, or shaking as a way of letting go of the needed baggage most of you carry on your shoulders due to your conditioning. They help one to feel lighter and at ease with oneself, and get in contact with the life energy within directly through the body. One then reaches a center within easier than with classical sitting meditation and a deeper quality of silence and contact with one’s self.
Meditation is not anything of the mind, it is something beyond the mind. The first step is to be playful about it. If you are playful about it, the mind cannot destroy your meditation. Otherwise, it will turn it into another ego trip; it will make you very serious.
This is a beautiful healing method in Himalayan yogic tradition including mudras sounds and concentration on chakras in order to balance elements in your body. The first day you learn how to apply on yourself and second for the others too.
