About This Project

Energize you body, calm your mind, and explore the voice of your soul, in a place of mesmerizing natural beauty, with long sandy beach and crystal clear waters just a breath away from your room. Rich organic meals and plenty of free time to explore the beautiful island of Paros.

The retreats with Maja go way beyond mere relaxation in the wonderful natural surrounding. They nourish the soul, and plant the seeds of clarity and wisdom. So many of her students choose to come again and again because, as they say, “the retreats charge their batteries for a full year of ups and downs.”

Expect to connect with nature, and arrive at your own natural state of being, a state of peace and relaxed openness. You will be guided through yoga sessions with a unique combination of dynamism and an introspective approach to asana. There will be plenty of time for yoga therapeutics, pranayama and meditation.

RETREAT SCHEDULE

5:45-6:30 Sunrise meditation (optional)

10:15-12:00 Brunch

Days begin with sunrise meditation and an uplifting 2 hour yoga practice that brings about vitality, joy and clarity, laying the foundation for a wonderful day to unfold.

In the afternoon, the practice is more calming, grounding and centering, focused on gentle yoga, yoga therapeutics and restoratives, as well as pranayama and nurturing relaxation time.

All yoga sessions are suitable for everyone, thanks to the Maja’s decade long experience of teaching mixed level classes, her broad knowledge of the students‘ physical requirements, and skillful adaptation of all poses for the benefit of each individual. Okreblue premises have the following props – blocks, straps, blankets and meditation cushions. You are advised to bring your own mat.

Maja is a passionate explorer of yoga as a process of growth. She is most interested in ways that physical alignment, breath attention, mental observation and yoga philosophy can all be combined to help us navigate through life’s challenges with greater skill and ease. She aims at raising an understanding that yoga is here to equip us with strength and strategies that we need in order to unfold the process of healing the relationship with ourselves, with others and with the planet.

Maja Zilih (E-RYT 500), founder of Maya Yoga and Athens Yoga Center, currently living and teaching in Vienna, Austria, teaches yoga and educates yoga teachers on both basic and advanced levels.

Location:

Nestled in the magical Filizi beach, overlooking the blue Aegean sea and amidst the beautiful cedar forest, Okreblue Seaside Retreat Center is ideally located for those looking to reconnect with mind, body, and nature. It is a place of exceptional natural beauty, with gorgeous outdoor yoga halls, amongst the trees and sounds of nature. The rooms are just a breath away from gorgeous sand beaches with crystal clear waters. The whole environment is ideal for mind-body-spirit practices, for learning, resting and rejuvenation.
