Did you know that the Element of Fire, when acknowledged and aligned within you, ignites Awareness and brings life-changing action, desired results and an actually deep, cleansing transformational? Aka all that you need for the closure of an era in your life and your preparation in order to open another, even more creative and meaningful one? Finally, did you know that the Element of Fire is dominant during the Summer season?
In this 5-day Yoga & Meditation retreat in Island, Greece, all self-grow-and-relaxation-combo-vacations aficionados can participate at this 5-day Yoga & Meditation retreat, regardless of the level of practice.
Our daily practice with Yoga Asanas, Mudras, Breathing techniques and various Meditation exercises aim to lead us “work” with the key chakras connected to the Fire Element: the Solar plexus and the Heart chakra. Our aim through this mindfully set-up daily trivia is to achieve a state of awareness on their role into our life and to purify them and reset them by using the Fire Element, in order to connect with our Higher Self and purpose of life.
Throughout the retreat, you allow yourself to reconnect with your inner joy, enthusiasm, nobleness, sincerity and clarity. You also experience a strengthened willpower and a more meaningfulconnectionwithyourbodyandyourself.Mindfulness and deep relaxation are always side benefits!
Do you think it is the best time to get all set for new beginnings you have in mind for a while now? Is it the best moment to re-define your “place of happiness” in this dynamically changing era?
