Chakra Healing and Yoga in Greece
About This Event
A week long stay on the eastern Pelion peninsula at a retreat overlooking the prettiest of seas, the Pagasitic Gulf. This really is a retreat where the emphasis is on treat. Staying in a beautiful waterfront house, join a group of maximum ten people for yoga sessions on a wooden platform in an olive grove where the sea laps at your toes. It is one of the most stress free places imaginable, with the warm air bringing out the aroma of wild thyme and lavender as you breathe in deeply.
The main focus of the retreat will be Annie Penny's chakra course - a programme dedicated exclusively to the Chakras, the seven main energy centres of our body which hold our life force energy and are the portals between our inner and outer worlds. On this course you will focus on one chakra at a time, from the base and moving up your energy system and you will use visualisations for each chakra to see how they re operating. You will learn grounding, protection and how to clear your energy, notice if a specific chakra has an imbalance, the reason it is out of balance and clear it and much more.
In addition the retreat will include daily yoga and meditation sessions which correspond to and awaken the chakras within us.
Dolphin’s Leap is an incredibly beautiful and peaceful place to relax and reconnect with yourself. First, photographs can’t truly capture how stunning the location is. There are so many places to relax and enjoy the views, whether from the pool, the sea platform, or the terrace. Second, the yoga sessions were perfect. The instriuctor was warm and encouraging to everyone, and always had new poses to try so that each class was unique (not easy with 11 classes over the course of the week). The classes were challenging but I felt mentally and physically refreshed and inspired after each one. Third, the food and accommodations were excellent. Every meal was delicious and healthy with fresh and local ingredients. The rooms were comfortable and airy, with large windows providing natural light and sea views. Pippa and Nick are wonderful hosts with so much interesting information about the house and the area. It was an amazing week.
