Day 2 Paxi - Antipaxi

TRAVEL ATTRACTIONS YOGA PROGRAM

8:00h — Morning Yoga

It’s a daily session to wake up with the rising sun and do a gentle all-levels welcome yoga. Starting with a short meditation to connect ourselves and our intentions for the day, chanting a few mantras to awaken our soul, we continue with a couple of easy breathing exercises just before the physical practice. The flow with the postures is slow and easy to follow for everybody, always with more challenging options for advanced students. After 60 min we finish the physical exercises with a smooth and deep relaxation to start the day new and refreshed in all ways.

 

17:30h — The Earth Element Special Session

We start the first of five special yoga sessions with the Element Earth related to the 1st Chakra. We work our roots through our legs and feet practicing balancing poses, strength and resistance on our legs, increasing our security and our attention in the present moment. It’s a practice for an intermediate level where beginners can feel the challenge and the advanced ones the joy.

Lefkas

Day 3 Lefkas

 

TRAVEL ATTRACTIONS YOGA PROGRAM

Despite being connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway, making it one of the few Greek islands that you can drive to, Lefkada remains surprisingly unaffected by tourism.

Laid-back Lefkada Town is a charming place to spend a day or two, while the hills of the interior still conceal timeless villages and wild olive groves, and the rugged west coast holds some amazing beaches, albeit in some cases badly damaged by recent earthquakes. Only along the east coast are there some overdeveloped enclaves; if you continue all the way south you’ll find stunning little bays and inlets, as well as windy conditions that attract kitesurfers and windsurfers from all over the world.

Lefkada was originally a peninsula, not a true island. Corinthian colonisers cut a canal through the narrow isthmus that joined it to the rest of Greece in the 8th century BC.

8:00h — Morning Yoga

A charge of strength and energy for the whole day!‎

17:30h — The Water Element Special Session

Water Element is the second special yoga session related to the 2nd Chakra. We work our flexibility opening our hips and stretching our legs, increasing the flow of water on us allowing to liberate and heal emotions, increasing our creativity and our sexual energy. It is a practice for an intermediate level

Kefalonia

Day 4 Kefalonia

 

TRAVEL ATTRACTIONS YOGA PROGRAM

Kefalonia is the island of sailors and mountain climbers, Greeks and Venetians, winemakers and travelers. Here stands Enom – the tallest mountain of Ionic islands (1628 m), covered with unique pine trees. Those willing to make a pilgrim tour may get into the Saint Gerasim monastery. There you will find an ancient sycamore tree still standing, said to have been planted by the saint himself. His cave-cell is located under the building of the monastery. Then we shall go for Andrew the First-Called Apostle monastery, the museum with miracle-making icons of Stephano Tsagarol, the Monastery of Saint Crucifixion in Pessado and the Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary with benches. It is also possible to pop into the local winery, where six kinds of Kefalonian wine are being made out of Robola grape.

Another excursion will go to the famous Drogarati cave with stalactites, stalagmites and unusual acoustics, due to which Maria Kallas and Luchano Povarotti took the floor there once. Then the observation ground above the famous beach Mirtos awaits us, followed by a lunch in the picturesque nearby village of Agia Efimia. Our trip will end with the visit to the underground lake Melissani; the cave that once stood over it was destroyed during an earthquake. Now the lake is exposed to the sun, which creates beautiful light show on the water with colors ranging from sky-blue to intense dark-blue.

17:30h — The Fire Element Special Session

Working with our 3rd Chakra, we do a special yoga session focused on the Fire Element. We work our core in power yoga sessions, where we work with strength and resistance, resting in soft twists that help us to increase and release at the same time our inner fire. This practice is also for an intermediate level.

Zakynthos

Day 5 Zakynthos

Zakynthos, the most reserved island of Greece

 

TRAVEL ATTRACTIONS YOGA PROGRAM

Zakynthos is the only Greek island having international status of the natural wildlife preserve. The island has been called “The flower of Mediterranean East” for its beauty and balmy gardens. Mirror-like waters of Zakynthos may be seen on almost every postcard of Greece.

Yachts floating on the water surface appear to be suspended in the air. It would be a crime to visit and not to swim in this magical place! Once in town, one may go to the National Sea Wildlife Preserve or visit the temple of Saint Dionysus, the local winery and the olive oil pressing factory or walk along the coastal avenue – Strata Marina – the liveliest street in the town, filled with coffee shops, bars and restaurants.

Ithaki

Day 6 Ithaki

Ithaki, the most romantic Ionic island

 

TRAVEL ATTRACTIONS YOGA PROGRAM

Ithaki is known worldwide as the motherland of Homeric hero Odysseus. The island became a symbol of returning home, as was here that his beloved wife, P enelope, has been waiting for him for 20 years. Ithaki attracts with its rich archeological heritage. Katharon – the most significant monastery on the island is located north from the capital at the elevation of 500 meters above sea level in Anogi. This is the monastery of the Blessed Virgin Mary. A unique view of the island opens up from its bell tower - Arcadia mountains, Arkhinades islands, eastern coast of Kefalonia and even the entrance to Patra Bay can be seen on the horizon. The coastlines of Peloponnesus and Zakynthos are visible in good weather. Ithaki is a refuge of romantics. Lonely bays, stately calmness, quietness and silence and conciliatory atmosphere attract them here. It is an ideal place to restore spiritual balance.

17:30h — Sunset Yoga (outdoor session)

We do a very special yoga session in an amazing outdoor spot nourishing ourselves with a magnificent sunset while we come into the flow of a multi-level yoga session.

Saranda

Day 7 Saranda

 

TRAVEL ATTRACTIONS YOGA PROGRAM

Saranda is the unofficial capital of the Albanian Riviera, and come the summer months it seems like half of Tirana relocates here to enjoy the busy beach and busier nightlife along its crowd-filled seaside promenade. What was once a sleepy fishing village is now a thriving city, and while Saranda has lost much of its quaintness in the past two decades, it has retained much of its charisma.

8:00h — Morning Yoga

A charge of strength and energy for the whole day!‎

 

17:30 h — The Ether Element Special Session

We work the higher Chakras with the Element Ether, the more subtle one. The practice is focused on our arm balances and inversions, giving us bravery, power and stillness, and equally a peacefulness. The practice is also for an intermediate level.
