Join us in a beautiful and tranquil setting surrounded by nature for an Ashtanga week. Paros is one of the most stunning islands in Greece. Best known for its beaches, traditional villages and incredible landscapes. October is a great season to visit Greece. Is not only low season which means no crowds but still you will be able to enjoy warm and sunny days together with a nice autumn light.
We are teaching in English, Spanish and German.

SCHEDULE

Every morning we are offering an Ashtanga Mysore-style Practice, where you receive individual guidance and adjustments. All level of students are welcome. Those new to the practice will be introduced to Mysore Style Self Practice, while more experienced practitioners will develop their
personal practice. The Asana practice will be followed by a break that allows you to relax and explore the surroundings of the island. In the afternoons we continue with Pranayama, mindful practices and talks. Through this week we will revise different aspects of the Ashtanga system, such as breath, bandhas, Drishti, and the vinyasa system, as well as going through the philosophical aspects of the practice. Finishing the retreat on Saturday with a traditional counted guided class to review all the fundamentals of the practice. During this retreat we would like to cultivate an understanding of yoga as a whole practice that involves mind, breath, body and way of living. (Yamas – niyamas)

Barbara Macias

I had my first yoga class in 2005 in México City. My first Yoga teacher was following the lineage of Donna Holleman in the Iyengar style. I was fortunate to study and visit Donna in Italy in 2008. This experience help to dive more into my practice and planted interest and curiosity for visiting India. I traveled to Mysore, India, that same year, where I was able to further deepen my practice at the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Institute with Sharath Jois. Since then Ashtanga became my main practice and a big part of my life.

I’ve kept visiting India in search of new inspirations and experiences. I practiced with Rolf Naujokat and other teachers in Goa.

In 2012 I started practicing under the guidance of Matthew and Carla Vollmer in Berlin, who became very important and inspiring teachers.

I became a teacher at Yoga school Berlin in 2010. Since 2017 I’ve been running the Mysore Program at Yoga School Berlin.

For me this practice has become my home and the place where I encounter myself to see where I am standing. This practice is the sacred place where I go and talk to myself. I feel grateful to have the experience to share this method with more people.
