Meditation with sunset at the Asklepion is very special. This is the sacred place of Hippocrates, who was born in Kos around the year 460 BC. The unique atmosphere makes this meditation a special and unforgettable experience.
If you feel like it, in the evening you can go with the group to the thermal baths. These are natural hot springs, which the Greeks themselves use to relax and enjoy. With the sun setting and the stars in the sky, it is wonderful to float in the warm water with the sounds of the mountain goats as the background.

Ten years ago I started with yoga, and I fell in love. Yoga taught me that everything is fine as it is in this specific moment. Yoga helps you to check in with your body. To feel and to listen to your heart and your intuition.Yoga is much more than performing the asanas on the yogamat and during my yogaclasses, Hatha, Vinyasa flow, Easy flow and Yin yoga, I will help you to find the beauty within yourself.
Yoga teaches me to embrace all the experiences in life just as they are. As one of my teachers mentioned: the wealth in life lies in how you have allowed its experiences to enrich you. Yoga brings me back to being and it keeps me centered. It’s a way of life, to live life with an open kind heart.
Eline is a dedicated yoga teacher. In her own authentic way she offers different styles of yoga.

Eline will lovingly guide you through this journey of self discovery, to the sheer joy of practicing in the sun.
