Skiaxtro is an olive grove Eco Farm mixed with pine trees, orchard and vegetable garden, located only 180 meters to the sea, 500 meters to the village of Marathopoli, on the western coast of Messinia, Peloponnese (GREECE). Many sights and beaches can be reached within a 30 minute drive.

Equipped with 2 tentipi (canvas tents) Skiaxtro Eco Farm can accommodate up to 8 people (4 person per tent), however there is ample space for anyone who wishes to attend the retreat and prefers to stay in his/her own private tent.

Under the shade of pine trees, a huge wooden Yoga deck (72 sq.m.) stands there for your daily practice.

Reach the Eco Farm from Kalamata international airport in 45 minutes or from Athens airport in 3 hours.

Program

During these six days, you will be guided by a master yoga teacher into the ancient tantric techniques. You will be given full instructions on practices as well as question and answer sessions in the evening (Satsang) to deepen your understanding and knowledge of Tantra yoga.

The day will start with purification of the internal body called Shatkarmas or Kriyas. It will follow a two-hour practice of Asanas (postures) in a dynamic manner to awake your body and keep it fit, and in a static manner to build up physical and mental strength.

You will practice and master the techniques of Kumbhaka (retention of the breath), Kriyas and Bandhas (activating energy locks), and Pranayama (breathing exercises), in order to feel and guide the Kundalini Shakti towards the Shiva consciousness. Additionally, in the two-hour evening class, you will be led into the meditation techniques of Yoga Nidra, Nada Yoga, and Tattwa Shuddhi.

Partner and naked yoga will also be practiced during these 6 days.

Between the two yoga sessions, there is ample time to enjoy the amazing rocky beach of Marathopoli and the wonderful local neighbouring, or surrender to a private Shamanic Healing session.

There will be daily organised excursions visiting the magnificent treasures around the area (such as Voidokoilia beach, Polilimnio waterfalls, Lagoon of Gialova, the archaeological site of Nestor's palace, Methoni castle, and the ancient theatre of Messini).

The benefits of this six-day experience is to strengthen and stretch the body, discover and feel the Shakti (energy) within and reach a completely relaxed and meditative state of mind in the most amazing places, south Greece has to offer.

Tantra is the combination of two Sanskrit words: TANoti or expansion and TRAyati or liberation, hence Tantra is the method to expand the mind and liberate the dormant potential energy.

The aspects of Shakti and Shiva (energy and consciousness) are not abstractions. Shakti represents the supplest manifestation of energy, lined coiled like a serpent at the Muladhara Chakra (the first chakra) and is known as Kundalini, whereas Shiva or consciousness, is located at the Sahasrara Chakra (the seventh chakra), the highest evolutionary center in man.
