Summer Solstice Yoga Retreat

June 20 -25

5 days of  PURE YOGA in Kyparissia (Greece)

with Natassa & Nireas

Yoga Retrat with Nireas and Natassa

✻ THE RETREAT

Take the opportunity to get recharged with the power of the Summer Solstice.

A retreat based on Integral Yoga which includes Hatha, Kriya, Kumbhaka and Meditation.

These practices aim to introduce and bring you deeper into the ancient techniques of Yoga. The goal of this spiritual journey is to achieve awareness and equilibrium that will accompany you during this yoga vacation and beyond !

Twice a day for two hours you will practice Asanas, Kumbhaka, Bandhas and Mundras (dynamic and static postures with retention of the breath and activating the energy locks to strengthen body and mind), Pranayama (breathing exercises to channelise the energy) and Pratyahara (meditation techniques to guide you to the path of awareness), led by Natassa and Nireas —two very experienced Yoga Teachers.

The resort is located 200 metres from the sea, set within an extensive olive grove and approximately 1.5 km from the town centre of the historic city of Kyparissia (Peloponnese).

✻ YOGA IMMERSION

Integral Yoga focuses on physical, mental and spiritual development, and caters to people at any/all levels. In this retreat, we will focus on:

◇ Asanas : dynamic and static sequential exercises/postures to improve the strength and flexibility

◇ Pranayama : breathing techniques to increase the lung capacity

◇ Mudras/Bandhas : exercises and methods to sublimate the energy and awaken the Kundalini

◇ Pratyahara/Dharana : relaxation of body in order to achieve full concentration during meditation

◇ Elements of Tantra, Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga, and Yoga Nidra (meditation technique of a sleep-like state of mind) will also be practised during this retreat!


❋SUMMER SOLSTICE

On Saturday 22,  the evening class will take place on the beach with a special practice dedicated to Solstice. This event will include meditation, Havan (a fire ritual) and chanting mantras.

❋ PROGRAM

During these five days, you will be guided from two master Yoga Teachers into ancient tantric techniques.

The day will start with 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).

Additionally in the evening classes you will be led into the meditation techniques of Yoga Nidra, Bhairova, Nadabrahma and Nada yoga .

Between the 2 yoga sessions there is ample time to enjoy and discover the beach and the wonderful local neighbouring, or surrender to a private Shamanic Healing session. If interested, there is the possibility to organise excursions visiting the magnificent treasures around the area (e.g. Voidokoilia beach, Polilimnio waterfalls, Lagoon of Gialova, archeological site of Nestor's palace and Olympia) .

 

On Saturday 22nd,  the evening class will take place on the beach with a special practice dedicated to the Summer Solstice. This event will include meditation, Havan (a fire ritual) and chanting mantras.

On the 4th day of the retreat —after the morning yoga class and breakfast— we will travel to the ancient temple of Apollo Epicurus —one of the most well preserved ancient temple in Greece— and than heading to the Neda Waterfalls. Senses and Pranayama Meditation, connection to history and nature, and enjoying the fresh waters of the river will be the highlights of the day.   

The benefits of this five day experience are to feel the sublimation of energy (Kundalini), to discover and overcome fears, obsessions or past traumas as well as to reach a completely relaxed and meditative state of mind.

❋ABOUT THE TEACHERS

 

Natassa

 

Yoga came to Natassas life when she asked from universe help to heal her life.

Natassa started her spiritual journey when she was 17 with reiki and different kinds of meditations. Till 7 years ago that yoga came in to her life. Studying different methods  of yoga (Hatha, Raja, Ashtanga and Kundalini) she realized that her true nature was in Kriya yoga.
Natassa believes that you never know when and how enlightment will come to you and that's why she uses in her lessons not only  Kriya but additions from other styles also.

Nireas

 

 

 

 



Yoga conquered Nireas after a journey of self-awareness in India.

Born in Greece, he left the country at his 17 to study IT in Germany. Very soon (he was 21) he discovered his love and ability to teach; from modern latin dances to Greek as a foreign language and computer applications, Nireas was travelling, learning and sharing knowledge.

It was only in 2011 when he quit his job in Cyprus as a 3D-product Designer and –following a friend’s advise– he discovered India and the ancient science of Yoga. From that moment he became conscious of what he wanted to do; nothing but practising, learning and spreading the knowledge of yoga.

After having collected self-experience(*) by attending yoga, and meditation courses and TTC’s (Yoga Teacher Training Courses), Integral Yoga captivated his interest and attention because of the way it combines self-development with spiritual upliftment.

Nireas is a highly sought after instructor and has taught numerous courses, workshops ans TTC's in India, Greece, France, UK. He speaks fluent English, French, German, Spanish and Greek.
