October in Greece is magical.
Come swim in the crystal blue Sea with us, rebalance your body-mind, and strengthen your yoga practice as we dive into the Mahabhutas.
Yoga philosophy offers an understanding that our human existence is a microcosm of the natural world we live in, and that the basic set of five elements in nature (the Mahabhutas in Sanskrit) are mirrored in our bodies as well. Everything in nature is made up of these Five Elements: earth, water, fire, air, and ether. Learning to recognize how these elements embody in us can lead to transformative experiences, and a steadiness to meet any situation in life.
Julie and Peter will offer daily yoga practices that weave these teachings, create harmony and balance in the body, and inspire fresh understanding of the yogic path of life.
Our home for the week will be Okreblue Seaside Eco Retreat center, a hip and spiritually charged destination located on the relatively untouched seaside of Santa Maria, the peninsula side of Paros Island, Greece. With a laid-back vibe, well appointed rooms, delicious food, and unique lounge spots around the property, plus being cradled by the crystal clear Aegaen Sea, the rawness of nature here are the perfect conditions for our retreat!
