July 2014 Yin & Yang yoga retreat in Santorini

7 July – 11 July, 2014

Start your day with an energizing hatha flow session and find the stillness with a meditative evening yin yoga class. Santorini in July offers the right holiday feel. We will practice on a secluded outdoor terrace overlooking the Aegean sea. The retreat will take place in Caveland.

 

About Caveland: Caveland or a ” tennis club” is a former 4 star hotel and a tennis club which was refurbished and re-opened in 2011 as a boutique hostel. It is a 15 000 sqm large complex situated in a picturesque village of Karterados just next to Fira town which is the capital of the island. It lies on the main bus route connecting Fira with the south of the island and therefor ideal if you wish to dicsover the island and still be away from the crowds.

Program:

During the retreat you will

  • Learn more about the postures so you can maximize their benefit
  • Morning classes will have an active character and we will practice hatha or hatha flow yoga
  • Evening classes will have a slow pace. You will get introduced to yin yoga during 4 evening classes and you will also have a chance to relax with yoga nidra, guided meditation, restorative yoga and yoga against the wall
Yin yoga is a great complement to active hatha yoga. Read more about yin yoga and its benefits on my website.
This retreat is suitable for eager yoga students who have already tried yoga before. Yin yoga requires  you to stay in the poses for longer which can be sometimes uncomfortable but not painful. Therefore it is recommended that you are familiar with yoga and understand how your body feels during active hatha or flow class.
