INTRODUCTIONTake the opportunity to get recharged with the power of the Corfiot Energy.
A retreat based on Integral Yoga, a tantric system which includes around 5 hours of yoga practices daily, in a hidden house set amidst lush vegetation, only 1 km from the beach. The practices aim to introduce and bring you deeper into the ancient techniques of Yoga. A spiritual journey for awareness and equilibrium that will accompany you during this yoga vacation and beyond!
Led by Nireas -a very experienced yoga teacher- you will practice for two hours, twice a day, dynamic and static postures (Asanas) to strengthen body and mind, breathing exercises (Pranayama) to channelize the energy and meditation techniques (Pratyahara) to guide you to the path of awareness.
The retreat place, situated in a yard of Mediterranean and citrus trees, is located in one of the most beautiful settings in the south-west of Corfu, just 800 meters from the Korissia lake (the largest lake on the island and a "Natura 2000" protected area) and only 1 kilometre from the beach.
You will be spoiled by the peaceful environment and with every breath you take, you will absorb the atmosphere of the surrounding nature and sea.

The "House by the Lake" is located within a magnificent environment, 28 kilometres south-west of Kerkyra town (the capital of Corfu), 800 meters from Korissia Lake and 1 kilometre away from the Halikounas beach.
Although it is only 1 kilometre from the beach, the venue is set amidst lush vegetation combining Mediterranean and citrus trees. It offers peace and tranquillity; essential ingredients to relax and enjoy your yoga holiday away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
The 100 square meter house is built on a 4-acre land providing total privacy. It consists of 3 bedrooms, a living-dining room, a fully equipped kitchen, an indoor bathroom, an extra outdoor shower and a large perimetrical veranda to share. Should you need extra privacy, small bungalows are also available within walking distance from the house at extra cost or allow you to bring your own tent in the housing field under the trees. Please contact Nireas for more information.
The area is ideal for both adventure lovers and serenity seekers. It is suitable for sports activities, such as kite surfing and horse riding, as well as hiking, nature exploring and meditation within the forest.
PROGRAMThis retreat gives you a full six-day immersion into Integral Yoga, including daily purification actions called Kriyas or Shatkarmas. You will receive guidance from Nireas, into ancient Tantric techniques.
There will be around five hours of practical classes each day. The two-hour yoga classes twice a day will include Asanas (yoga poses), Pranayamas (breathing techniques), Kriyas (purification techniques), and Yoga Nidra (deep meditations). This retreat will include 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 detox consists of daily Shatkarmas and an optional short intestine cleansing, known as Laghoo Shanka Prakshalana on the last day of the retreat.
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 session.
