Life is experienced as a balance between opposite forces; the Yin-like Shakti and the Yang-like Shiva, the divine Feminine and the divine Masculine, the Moon and the Sun, the Expansion and Contraction; the Spanda. In this 6 day retreat journey we will dive into the exploration of these forces.
Spanda can be described as the creative pulse of life, the expansion and contraction of the inner and the outer space. We will move into the practice according to this Spanda, this pulsation, flowing through poses and allowing organic movement and breath to become the guiding force of the yoga practice.
Whether you are new to yoga or a more experienced practitioner, you will get the opportunity to deepen your understanding and practice so that will you can feel more in-tune with your own personal rhythm.
Sassy’s expertise in anatomy, alignment and yoga as therapy, combined with Eleni’s creativity in flow sequencing and intuitive movement, will bring you dynamic and inspiring flows during the morning yang practice, leaving you feeling stronger and more secure in your own practice and body. In the evenings we will dive into a Yin practice to nourish the meridians and destress, cultivating restful alertness, increasing flexibility and mobility. The prefect combination.
During the retreat we will have an extensive morning practice which will include morning meditation at the beach and then a deep Vinyasa flow and asana exploration while in the evenings we will dive into Yin yoga
Meditation and pranayama practices in the mornings will include, amongst others, Kriyas and visualisations that aim to balance the two opposites of the Shiva as awakening consciousness and Shakti as creative life force, the activating empowering energy.
Between practices you will have the opportunity to enjoy the island. Paros has incredible beaches, amazing food and beautiful towns and villages to explore.
Okreblue is located in Santa-Maria beach, a 3’ walk from the sea and nicely hidden behind sand hills and indigenous trees. The ecological design of Okreblue blends with nature in a unique way allowing your body and mind to relax.
