In this retreat, you will work on your heart chakra with asanas, pranayama, meditation, and mantras. You will learn to open your heart chakra more, balance it, and feel the deep energy of love coming from this center. You will find out who you really are, resting in your heart, and spreading love and light into the world. There will also be a evening of dancing meditation at the end of the retreat.
The house is an old stone house with a big garden and many places to relax. The rooms are nice and refreshing in the summer. They have restored all the rooms in the original style of the house. There are three double rooms which will be shared during the seminars with shared bathrooms and a yoga shala overlooking the Lybian sea.
“Yoga for me is a state of mind and a whole lifestyle, that’s why I teach in a way that includes the heart, the mind, the soul, as well as the physical body.”
The highlights of this retreat are the dancing meditation on the end of the retreat, daily time for going to the beach in between the asana classes morning and evening, the availability of Reiki, lots of massages, and the true opening of your heart, biological yogic food for your daily health, and detoxing the mind and body for finding who you really are.
Meditation, pranayama, and asanas will be at 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. followed by breakfast. After there is free time for the beach and more. In the afternoon, from 5 to 7 p.m., we have another yoga class with more gentle yoga, breathing, (except for Wednesday and Friday, there will be a free afternoon) to become totally aware of the opening of the heart and also the hip area which is connected to the heart as we all have a lot of blockages.

This retreat will take place in Amiras, Crete, Greece. Amiras, a mountain village on the south side of Crete. The area has the quietness of the mountains in the back and the vastness of the Lybian sea in front. The energy is very special and calming.
You can go trekking in the woods (only pine forest on the island ) and mountains or visit some of the most beautiful beaches on Crete. The area here is still like Crete many years ago, with empty beaches and little villages where you can bath naked or stay in front of a tavern, with no extra charge of sunbeds and such.
