FIVE ELEMENTS RETREAT THERAPEUTIC YOGIC PRACTICES MEDITATION, ASANA, PRANAYAMA, BODYWORK
With Jonas Westring & Sasy Chasomeri. In life we play out many versions of ourselves and only when we let go of our need to be defined by the boundaries and ideas of who we think we are or must be, are we the true expression of ourselves. The elements of nature exists around us and within us. We are made of earth, water, fire, air and the ether that surrounds and holds everything – the moment we allow ourselves to explore this very nature of our true being, transformation begins. At the unique setting of Okreblue Seaside Retreat during this 7-day yoga retreat, Jonas and Sasy will lead practices that are systematic, effective and therapeutic while incorporating the framework of the 5 elements of Yoga & Ayurveda. Meditations will be held in a different nature locations and each asana class will address a specific theme/topic. Through mindful therapeutic movement, techniques and sequences we will have the opportunity to explore strengths, acknowledge limitations, and learn to move beyond them. We’ll be looking for true Yoga = Union, which may be found in mindful activity or moments of stillness. Join this retreat and find yourself in the most beautiful land of light, earth, water, wind and held in the eternal ether of the fabulous Greek island Paros. The retreat includes daily morning and evening practices with morning meditation at different nature locations around the retreat center to establish a deeper connection and understanding of the elements. Morning meditations will be followed by asana classes in order to embody the elemental state of being through our perfect vehicle which we call body. We meet again in the late afternoon for a second session that offers a variety of supportive practices such as slow therapeutic asana, partnered yogic bodywork and more.
All practices are accessible to both those newer to yoga and more experienced practitioners/ yoga teachers. Light snack and tea will be offered in the short break between meditation and asana class, followed by Okreblue’s sumptuous brunch buffet with home made delicacies right after asana.
There’s lots of free time to enjoy the beaches and the island, relax at Okreblue’s beach or treat yourself with a nurturing massage, while many other options awaits you to explore. The evenings offers Okreblue’s delicious and organic rich and healthy dinner buffet.
