Full Description

19th - 26th September with Jennie Hillman. Exclusively for 10 people

7 day luxury yoga retreat in a seafront private estate in a beautiful, unspoilt corner of mainlandGreece.

Jennie will teach Vinyasa Flow Yoga where the classes are co-ordinated with the breath to create a dynamic yet meditative practice. All levels are welcome!

Before breakfast the day will begin with a morning sunrise (Surya) yoga session. The Dynamic Vinyasa Flow practice will use the sun's energy to awaken the body and prepare the mind for the day.

The morning 1.5 hour practice will open with a short, settling meditation, and then move into a sequence of sun salutations. As the body warms and opens, an asana sequence will follow, moving from one posture to another, using the breath to link the movements. Strengthening standing poses, focussed balances, cleansing twists, contemplative seated folds, uplifting backbends and restorative inversions will all be included to create a fully balanced practice. Adjustments will be used to correct alignment and deepen the pose, whilst inspiring music will enhance. A full Savasana of rest will conclude the morning practice.

Evening Yoga Practice (1.5 hours) The evening session wil be a sunset (Chandra) practice which will be of a more restorative nature, to allow the body to unwind from the day. The lunar practice will again open with a meditation, followed by a slower asana practice, holding the poses for longer periods, to allow the body to relax into stillness. The session will include a pranayama (breath) practice and will be completed with a full, guided Yoga Nidra of deep relaxation.

Dinner will be taken after the evening session.

About Jennie:
Read this review :

"Jennie teaches dynamic Vinyasa flow– with a lightness of touch and a spirituality that speaks directly to your heart, but involves no talking whatsoever. These sessions are practiced with gorgeous music playing and incense wafting; they end with a poem or the wise words of the ancients. Whichever discipline you opt for, your body feels wrung out and released. You enter a new, freer dimension with a clear head, a whole heart, and an inner strength which leaves you better able to cope with anything that might be thrown your way. Jennie truly is someone special."
