  • This event has passed.

Towers, Castles, stone-built villages, coastline, caves and wild beauty from authentic Greece
During this 3 day retreat we will lose ourselves in Laconian Mani’s charm, where its unique Light is depicted on the Stones. In this corner of the Peloponnese we will capture together, the rich history, the tradition and a taste of the luscious local gastronomy.

 The Petra & Fos Boutique Hotel & Spa overlooks the blue waters of Oitilo bay in the rocky southern outskirts of Taygetus in Mani. Fully integrated into the natural environment with traditional architecture and simple luxury this hotel invites us to discover Mani’s wild beauty and unique charm and to live an authentic experience of relaxation and wellness with Yoga.
The “Anerousa” restaurant invites us to new gastronomic experiences under the distinguished chef’s Christopher Peskias supervision. We will enjoy our dinner overlooking Itilo’s beautiful bay. The Mediterranean flavors draw inspiration from the Greek tradition, utilizing excellent raw materials of the land of Mani, fresh local produce and modern techniques.
Just like Nature, our body produces the most appropriate medication for every season, as long as you know how to activate it. Winter is the season of the internalization of energy. Energy does not just stay on the surface, it does not just return to where it started in spring, but it penetrates into deeper levels, it reaches the root of things.
We will follow a daily routine with specific asanas, nutrition and meditation that will help us penetrate into a deeper level. The root of life, the root of all things lies in this deepest layer. The element that is most closely related to winter’s energy behavior is water, as it tends to always move downwards and be driven within. The kidneys and the bladder represent the element of water and winter’s action. Chinese medicine views storage in the kidney in unity with the reproductive organs. The same section includes hair, head, bones, ears and the mind. The cycle of five seasons begins in early February, which is the beginning of spring and the most productive organ is the liver.
This practice is for all levels of trainees.
I’m waiting for you for a three-day storage and energy development.
