Yoga & Mindfulness Retreat: Koufonissia Greece
Silence and quietness give you the possibility to feel sensations, to connect with your body, to listen to your inner voice instead of the daily chatter and thoughts of your mind and outer distractions. It gives you the opportunity to cultivate your body, mind and heart awareness and embed your physical and mental practice in your system in a holistic and wholesome way. Joy, compassion, courage, grace and equanimity will become your daily compass.
The daily strengthening but gently given ashtanga yoga, the silent, guided mindfulness meditations and the loving and inviting yin yoga with a view on Pori Beach of Koufonisia will open your body, your mind and your heart and invites you to investigate what is and to let go of what should.
The small unspoilt Cycladic island Koufonisia is a rare gem and a true hide away where the sound of the sea and the wind will surround you. No cars, no scooters, just a handful of tourists, little secret bays, blue skies, a vast wideness, bright sun and nature that leaves you in awe.
The energy of this tiny island, the sea, the food, the teachings, the teachers, the alchemy of touch massages will rejuvenate you and contribute to your overall well-being. The only downside, you might not want to take the ferry back home; there is some magic here.
