NISYROS YOGA RETREAT

24/07/2018 - 29/07/2018
€390

To relax and decompress…
To clear your mind and start over fresh…

Yoga retreats give you the opportunity to rejuvenate while concentrating on your practice.
Our Yoga retreats aim to promote a healthier way of life through exercise and healthy food while discovering new places and interact with new people. We want our participants to gain a few valuable moments of relaxation and to decompress themselves from the hectic and always demanding everyday life.

The Island

Nisyros will host our Summer yoga retreat from July 24 to July 29. One of the hidden treasures of the Aegean, Nisyros is one of the two existing volcanos worldwide where you can visit and walk on its craters where it all feels quite surreal, like being on a different planet!

This fascinating island, with its out of this world beauty, at the south east Aegean sea in the Dodecanese complex, has not been affected by the heavy boom of tourism. Here things are quitter more relaxing and due to its volcanic nature this small island has a special energy that you absorb immediately once you get there.

Small villages with traditional squares, long beaches with no beach bars and sunbeds and of course the craters of the volcano constitute a unique landscape similar to none.
The island has always been the refuge of several artists where they seclude themselves in order to get inspiration and relaxation.

The craters

You don’t get to visit a volcano every day. What’s more, this one has three craters. The locals feel so proud of them, they’ve even given them names: Stephanos, Alexandros and Polyvotis. Or maybe they hoped doing so would pacify them! Two eruptions, 20,000 years ago, gave birth to today’s caldera. As you descend into the enormous crater, you could be entering an unknown yellow-streaked, ashen planet, with bubbling pits and enormous cracks.

Volcanological Museum

The Volcanological Museum in Nikia is one of the best geological museums in Greece. It shows in all facets the how volcanoes are formed and where you can find volcanoes on Earth. On numerous charts and great photos the “Fascination Volcano” is made available to a wide audience. In the volcanological Museum you can watch videos about the rise of the volcanic island of Nisyros and the surrounding volcanoes Cos, Yali, Strongyli or Pergousa.

Hot Springs

The hot springs of Nisyros, the “Loutra”, are located just 1,5 km from where we will be staying. They are housed in a 19th century building and they are legendary for their therapeutic properties. The maximum temperature of the hot spring is 46°C.
During our time on the island we will visit the hot springs, the craters, we will hike on foot paths and enjoy local specialties.

The hotel

We will be staying at “Porfyris hotel” in Mandraki which is the capital of the island. The hotel has a big swimming pool and is located just 5 minutes from the central square and 10 minutes from the beach. A beautiful garden is ideal for relaxing during our free time and the majority of the rooms have a sea view.

Yoga Retreats by Mara Konstantinid | Yoga Travellers Home

Τα Yoga retreats που διοργανώνουμε έχουν σαν στόχο να αναδείξουν ένα πιο υγιεινό τρόπο ζωής μέσα από την άσκηση και τη σωστή διατροφή ενώ παράλληλα ανακαλύπτουμε νέους τόπους και συναναστρεφόμαστε με καινούριους ανθρώπους. Θέλουμε οι συμμετέχοντες να απολαύσουν μερικές πολύτιμες στιγμές χαλάρωσης και να ξεχάσουν για λίγο την χαοτική και πάντα απαιτητική καθημερινότητα.

Επιλέγουμε προορισμούς που συνδυάζουν τη φύση με την άνετη διαμονή και που θα αφήσουν όμορφες αναμνήσεις σε αυτούς που θα τους επισκεφτούν. Θέλουμε το περιβάλλον να είναι σε αρμονία με την πρακτική μας και να  μας βοηθήσει να χαλαρώσουμε κατά τη διάρκεια της διαμονής μας. Επιπλέον μας δίνεται η ευκαιρία να εξερευνήσουμε την περιοχή, να μάθουμε την ιστορία της, και να γευτούμε τοπικές λιχουδιές.

Μέσα από την άσκηση μαθαίνουμε να αγαπάμε το σώμα μας και να ανακαλύπτουμε τις αμέτρητες δυνατότητές του, (σε ένα όμορφο περιβάλλον, χωρίς βελτιώνουμε τις ασκήσεις μας (asanas), τη στάση του σώματός μας και τις τεχνικές της αναπνοής.

Με τον διαλογισμό χαλαρώνουμε το μυαλό μας και συγκεντρωνόμαστε σε πράγματα που μας κάνουν χαρούμενούς και ολοκληρωμένους.

Απολαμβάνοντας διαλεχτά χορτοφαγικά γεύματα δίνουμε στο σώμα μας όλα τα απαραίτητα στοιχεία για μία πλήρη κάθαρση και για να γεμίσουμε ενέργεια.

Θέλουμε οι συμμετέχοντες των retreats να συναναστρέφονται και να περνούν όμορφα μεταξύ τους, να κάνουν καινούργιους φίλους και να δημιουργούν δεσμούς που θα κρατήσουν για πολύ καιρό.

Προσπαθούμε πάντα να επιμεληθούμε όλες τις λεπτομέρειες για να έχει το group μία άνετη διαμονή και είμαστε πάντα δίπλα τους για να τους βοηθήσουμε και να τους ενημερώσουμε με τον καλύτερο δυνατό τρόπο.
