Ashtanga Yoga Retreat
Triopetra | Crete
15 - 22 June 2013
with Andrea Lutz
assisted by Aris Kapetanakis
We invite you to join us for one week of intensive yoga practice and relaxation in the beautiful south of Crete.
We are staying in the guesthouse "Pavlos" situated on a cliff on the beach of Triopetra. In its quietness and beauty the place offers the ideal surroundings and facilities for our yoga retreat. Away from the main tourist spots the guesthouse is run by the same family for over 20 years and is renowned for its friendliness and its delicious food. The yoga hall is built on top of the cliff, it is equipped with a nice wooden floor and provides stunning views over the ocean and the hilly coastline.
Our focus will be on traditional Ashtanga Yoga classes in Mysore style in the mornings. In the afternoons there will be a second practice with more focus on the techniques of Ashtanga Yoga and the "inner work" like breath and bandhas, regenerative yoga (Yin Yoga) postures to relax and balance the intense practice and we will have talks about Yoga Theory and Philosophy.
This year there will be the possibility to attend a Zazen meditation practice each morning led by Aris Kapetanakis.
All levels of students are welcome to join the retreat. The Mysore style teaching allows us to work with each student individually and to give personal assistance and guidance for beginners and advanced students alike.
