During your week in Greece, you will work on the primary series, that has a therapeutical approach by its nature, giving emphasis to as many details as possible, encouraging the flow and feeling of meditation through movement that is already occurring.

Mysore or self-practice is known to all that have practiced the method of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga. However, during this week, you will approach it in a very slow way, giving emphasis to details, flow, and repetitions of asanas in order to deepen your practice. The pranayama class will prepare you to build a daily practice while for those that already practice, they can deepen more in it.
The evening class will work more in details with basic aspects of the practice using asana as a way to experience the benefits of a method that works in your body and soul, including helpful tools like your gaze, the sound, and flow of breath, ease / comfort and variations of each aspect of the practice. Evening classes will give you another point of view and thus support your already established morning practice.
After a short break, you will spend a time to approach the philosophical basis of yoga through selected sutras, articles, or personal views, questions, and thoughts from your experiences. The seminar will be closed with a led class on Saturday morning at 08:00. This final practice will give you the opportunity to experience the group energy that has been built during the previous days, allowing for emotions to flow with intimacy and easy.
In addition, as you will approach many aspects or levels during the useful time of this retreat, keep in mind that a practitioner does not need to adapt to a method but rather the method can adapt to the practitioner in order to serve and support each individual and phase of his / her own life.
