After the holidays of Christmas and with the coming of 2020, in the 3 days of the Epiphany, we’ll meet in a special place, near Monemvasia, with a great history, for a detoxification of the body and the soul, in a unique Yoga retreat.
A true Zen state in a place where everything is real, with beautiful trees—the one that stole my heart is the sweet acacia, a tree with yellow-golden flowers that form large axillaries and capillary inflorescences. Its smell is intoxicating. The whole estate is intoxicating, full of soul and history. Endless water flows from the spring, filling the air with sound, everywhere you go.
We walked the pathways between the estate’s gardens to enjoy the lively colours and smells from the ornamental and aromatic plants, of which it has more than 250 species.
We tried its fruits and the products of its farms, we took part in the olive preservation process, putting them in plastic bottles with water, salt, lemon, and aromatic plants (oregano, thyme, coriander), we met its cellar and tasted its malvazia, we relaxed with their pampering in the spa, and tried the Greek creative tastes in a unique atmosphere.
The Kinsterna Hotel 5* is a byzantine mansion that was restored with complete respect to its long historical journey, to serve today as a unique lodging with world-wide recognition, that promises to give us a unique experience of staying in a true paradise for the lovers of nature.
There are no words to describe the serenity, the clean air, and the aura of this mansion, that overlooks the legendary castle on the rock of Monemvasia.
In the fertile 90-acre estate, whose most famous previous owner was Ibrahim Bay, we’ll relax around the natural-water pools, we’ll be rejuvenated in the atmospheric Kinsterna Spa, and we’ll hike on the green hills around the estate, enjoying the enchanting view and the nature. The sun-dried wine of Monemvasia-Malvasia (PDO) is produced in the mansion’s vineyards.
The place seems out of a fairytale, and every room or suite is unique
Just 7 kilometers away, we’ll be visiting the castle-city of Monemvasia to get to know its uniqueness and its multiple discreet elements, all in a romantic landscape.
On this proud rock, between medieval walls, we’ll explore it together, and we’ll meditate and take our deep breaths, in a spot that I’ve specifically chosen for you.
The element of the earth will be active in this first retreat of 2020. We’ll work on the chakra of the base. The element of the earth represents the senses, stability, strength, survival, security, decay, patience, health, warmth, comfort, the labours of the earth and with the animals. We’re honouring this element, taking care of nature, of the earth, and ourselves. Paying attention to your senses, to your body, to your physical needs, and to your bodily health. When the element of the earth dominates, it aids in curing, in the practices and energies that are related to it. With warm beverages of sage and pine, we’ll give a warm note to our practices.
*The yoga practices are for all levels.
