About This Event

“Connect your Body and Mind to empower your full potential.”

 

Move Mindfully. This is your chance to not only move your body, but feel your mind and soul moved from a deeper, conscious level as well.
Over 5 days we will practice different styles of mindfulness methods including Yoga, Meditation, Breath Work, Mental Training and Journaling. As the main focus of these days will be Yoga & Movement, you can expect profound body-alignment-methods as well as flowing movements, synchronized with your breath and oriented on your level of experience and know-how. Some of the Vinyasa Flow-parts will be practiced on-beat to music.
Dive deep into the astonishing surrounding of one of the most beautiful locations in northeastern Crete, Agios Nikolaos. Nourish your senses with the smell of the salty sea and a hundreds of olive trees and mediterranean herbs all over the hotel gardens. Enjoy the breathtaking 360° view over the Mirabello Bay while having excellent Cretan cuisine. Sunrise and sunset will be our companion while experiencing a uniquely, transformational and heart-warming time together.
After these 5 days of connecting to yourself you will feel nourished within your heart and soul, have reached the next level of your Yoga-practice and have built-up a sustainable transformation of mindful mindset and body-mind-connection for your daily life beyond the mat.
Suitable for experienced Yoga practicioners and/or Yoga beginners who already have basic know-how, like to move in a sporty and dynamic way and would like to expand their level of experience. Not suitable for absolute Yoga newbies.
This retreat will be held in English or German, depending on the language-background of participants.
