Yoga Retreat next to the Sea in Aegina, with Fotini Bitrou

Yoga Retreat next to the Sea in Aegina, with Fotini Bitrou

Another four-day (25–28 of October 2019) yoga retreat reached its end, in my island of Aegina, in the Irides hotel. We used the new room for the first time, next to the sea, protected by the weather, with a view like no other, and a special floor for maximum comfort during our lessons.

 

With friends from previous retreats, and new ones alike, we had another unbelievable experience with the aid of the weather. Practices based on the Ayurveda, where I, after tests, gave my own series of Asanas, designed for this particular group, with the purpose of strengthening the muscles, the flexibility, and to relieve from back pains. Imagine lying in the savasana posture, hearing and smelling the sea, under the sounds of singing bowls, breathing deeply, relaxing… Yes, that’s what we experienced… You can come and we can enjoy it together next year.
We had the chance to visit the Church of Afaia, Agios Nektarios, the picturesque villages of Souvala and Perdika, as well as the chance to observe the parade of the 28th of October in the port of Aegina.
The Light and Energy of Aegina are the basic ingredients for the success of a Yoga retreat.
