Das Orion ist ein sehr schöner Ort, um einfach zu sein, Yoga zu machen und zu Entgiften. Die YogalehrerInnen, sowie das gesamte Personal, ob an der Rezeption oder im Restaurant sind sehr freundlich uns hilfsbereit.
Ich bin so gestresst angekommen und sehr gechillt gefahren :)
Ich habe das Detox Programm mitgemacht und bin dort sehr gut angeleitet worden. Anschließend habe ich ein Yogaretreat gemacht, auch das hat mir sehr gut gefallen - es gibt eine unglaubliche Auswahl an Yogastunden, ich hatte die Möglichkeit, verschiedene Yogastile auszuprobieren, einfach Klasse.
I’ve been at Orion in Dez 2016 for a Detox fast with a yoga retreat afterwards. The yoga teachers Ewa and Ben inspired me so much, that I came back a year later to join the yoga teacher training. These 4 weeks where intense and thought me way more than I expected. I’m grateful that I had the chance to have this experience.
I have visited Orion Healing a year ago for a detox program. I absolutely love our yoga classes there, which inspired me to enroll for Yoga Teaching Course. West of the island, where Orion is located, is just peaceful and calm with beautiful nature. It is said by locals that Orion is the best place for food and yoga. Even if you are not vegan you will love it. Our TTC training changed my life. Ewa and Ben are super teachers they know what they do. They are very inspiring and you will discover a lot about yourself. You will get high quality of food, teachers in a great location. I'll be back next year again.
ORION Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training, Reiki, Raw Food Cooking Classes the best! Besides the amabience, the sunsets, the amazing vegan/raw food and delicious smoothies, in the time i was there (november -april 2015/16) Orion offered a variety of yoga classes through the day.. everyday, from ashtanga to hatha/vinyasa to yin yoga and yoga nidra, reiki sessions, kirtan, sound healings and great massage sessions...it is one of the most complete healing centers i've been to. Friendly and experienced staff.. YES...most of the teachers/healers at Orion will definitely inspire and motivate your practice in some way. I surely recommend to visit this jewel in the island, you will not want to miss it.
Viva Orion! Wonderful place for yoga, detox and healthy vegan food! Orion is wonderful! I took a yoga teacher training in Orion in March 2016. The schedule and the program was nice, as well as the atmosphere. The additional classes on anatomy and kirtan were so enriching as well. Also the Orion restaurant is one of the best in this zone for the healthy vegan eating. I can trust that whatever I order in Orion is fresh, organic and natural.
I attended a one month yoga teacher training course at Orion, it was the most amazing experience. They provide with such a fantastic atmosphere, as well as very proffessional and caring teachers Named. I became to love them as famlily, Daliah, Coco, Ben, Malka and the rest of the crew, thank you. The healthy vegan food, and the overall feeling at Orion is just incredible. i want to stay for a year or more. I also attended a master reiki course with Ari and he is an amazing, inspiring teacher. forever gratetful for this place, and i will be back, no doubt about that.
