8 days- all levels Yoga & Meditation retreat, led by Marc Holzman & Tara Judelle

It’s been quite a year. As the world paused amidst a devastating pandemic, many of us missed the opportunity to gather in person. We both felt as you may have, the profound longing for the community space of retreat, the warm embrace of nature, and the humaning that occurs when we nurture one another into a space of freedom and love.
In the 15 years that we have been co-creating retreat experiences, never has the urge to commune and support one another felt more destined. And while we often call our gatherings a RETREAT, they are actually more of an ADVANCE because we have remained loyal to our one common vision: to advance our students towards a deeper level of self-discovery through the power of movement, shared wisdom, meditation, and attunement with nature.

It all happens at the Okreblue retreat center on the spectacular island of Paros.

Our prior retreat students often tell us that we over-deliver; this is a badge of honor that we wear proudly! Our days begin with sunrise mantra on the beach followed by guided meditation, dynamic movement through traditional yoga and Embodied Flow™️ somatic, Ayurveda lectures, and Nidra sessions.
Marc continues to build on his Ayurvedic knowledge to include the potent and healing essential oils of medicinal plants in combination with Yoga Nidra. Tara continues to explore methods for guiding people into meditation in motion through asana, free movement, and embryological and developmental patterning within Yin Yoga.

We are excited to share our new discoveries with you.
Of course, you’ll also enjoy nearly five free hours daily in which to swim in the pristine, Cycladic, turquoise sea, play in the sun, visit ancient towns and ruins, or simply journal and take long naps. And let’s not forget our extraordinary Indian chef, Suresh, who graces us daily with fresh, organic, vegetarian dishes harvested directly from the Okreblue garden.
Whether you are one of our retreat Alumni or have been postponing this gift to yourself for a few years, we invite you to join us once again or for the very first time to watch the magical sunrise in the east morph into the glowing sunset in the west. The famous liquid glow of Grecian light is sublime.
This is how you synchronize your body/mind to the rhythms of nature.
This is where deep rejuvenation begins.
This is why we return.
Come celebrate with us.

Tara Judelle & Marc Holzman

Tara Judelle
My own journey, like most seekers, was one that started with a search for wholeness and the need to alleviate my from my own suffering.

In hindsight the angst that started in my early teens, was, more than anything I could point to, a sense of fundamental longing that comes with our human birth. The one of feeling separate and alienated by the thought constructs of our individual mind.

I practiced guided meditation on cassette tapes. I ran. I looked for God. I found relieve in movement, in dance, in theater, in art, in writing. While I studied extensively and found ways to translate the language of formlessness into form through those mediums there was an underlying connective state I was still in search of. The search took me through University in New York, and to drama school in North Carolina, I still had the underlying anxiousness of what the yoga would call “the mind stuff”.

Where these mediums coalesce/intersect and create the bi-direction spectrum of the Self is through the medium of yoga.

Looking for a language that didn’t require actors, an audience, I found a friend practicing asanas. She gave me a book with stick figures and I started practicing in my room. I moved to Los Angeles in 1997, and took my first official yoga class as an adult in a gym. Afterwards I promptly quit the gym and followed the yoga teacher.

For the next four years, as I struggled as a writer in Hollywood, I found a class once or twice a day. I was writing screenplays, and ultimately wrote and directed a feature film, but yoga had become my obsession.

For the past 20 years I have relentlessly pursued the deeper meanings of yoga. With asana as a gateway, I stepped into philosophy (specifically the non-dual northern based philosophy of Kashmir Shaivism) as taught to me by my teachers Sally Kempton, Carlos Pomeda and Paul Muller Ortega. As well as the Sri Vidya southern based goddess tradition with Douglas Brooks.

From Sally Kempton I studied and practice meditation in earnest. I shed many many layers.

In 2008, desperate to take my understanding of the body infinitely deeper than asana, I found the world of Body Mind Centering®, and have since studied with Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, Amy Matthews and Myra Avedon who unpacked the world of somatics as ways of bringing the felt since of the three-dimensional body to the broader meaning of the technology of tantra.

The pursuit is always harnessed by my desire to bring the tantric technology to life through the body, not just in meditation but in movement, action ,and group mind.

My teaching and practice were based in Los Angeles, until 2010, I moved to Bali exclusively for 2 years, and from 2012 I have traveled the world offering trainings, workshops, immersions and retreats.

In 2014, I founded the School of Embodied Flow™ with my co-creator Dr. Scott Lyons, who I met through the world of Body Mind Centering®. Together we wanted as a way to bring together the technologies of somatics, tantra, psychology and yoga into a continuum of movement and mindfulness to awaken our whole Self.

We now have taught students from over 50 countries, and have a teaching network of 20 certified teachers and more than 20 inspired teachers in Embodied Flow™.
