Lunar Healing Yoga Retreat Greece

Take the opportunity to transform the massive energy of the full moon on the most unique sight seas at the southern point of Peloponnese. A retreat based on Integral yoga which includes Hatha, Kriya, kumbhaka, and meditation. These practices aim to introduce and bring you closer to the ancient techniques of yoga. The intention of this retreat is to prepare you to absorb the healing energy of the full moon and to give you the opportunity to visit places and beaches that only the locals know.

 

The Retreat

 

During these eight days, you will be guided by two master yoga teachers into the ancient tantric techniques. You will be given full instructions on practices as well as question and answer sessions in the evening (Satsang) to deepen your understanding and knowledge of traditional yoga.

The day will start with purification of the internal body called Shatkarmas or Kriyas. It will follow a practice of Asanas (postures) in a dynamic manner to build up endurance and flexibility for a fit body, and in a static manner to build up physical and mental strength. You will practice and master the techniques of Kumbhaka (retention of the breath), Kriyas and Bandhas (activating energy locks), and Pranayama (breathing exercises). Additionaly in the evening classes you will be led into the meditation techniques of yoga Nidra, Bhairova, Nadabrahma and Nada yoga. Between the two yoga sessions, there is ample time to enjoy and discover the beach and the wonderful local neighbouring, or surrender to a private Shamanic Healing sessions.

There will be daily organized excursions visiting the magnificent treasures around the area (such as Voidokoilia beach, Polilimnio waterfalls, Lagoon of Gialova, the archeological site of Nestor's palace, Methoni castle, and the ancient theater of Messini) .

On Thursday 16th, the day of the full moon, the morning class will have "Satkarmas" (purification technique) and the evening class will be a special practice on the beach dedicated to Full Moon. This event will include full moon meditation, havan (a fire ritual) and chanting mantras.

The benefits of this eight day experience are to heal your self with the power of full moon and to reach a completely relaxed and meditative state of mind in the most amazing places the south Greece has to offer.
