Imagine living a life free of old age diseases that plague most Americans. For people living on the Greece island of Ikaria, this is not an imagination. With 1 in every 3 people who live in the island actually seeing their 90th birthday, the presence of strong, aged people is rather soothing. Anyone can be a part of this band wagon by simply copying their lifestyle, eating what they eat, and adopting an outlook similar to theirs. As a tourist to the Ikaria Island, one not only gets to partake of the secret of longevity but also enjoy the culture and geography that characterize this world blue zone.
Apart from its welcoming people, vibrant festivities and beautiful beaches Ikaria is a center of attraction for people who are looking to keeping aging at bay
Do you know why it is referred to as the island where time stops? It is because it has the highest number of centenarians compared to any other place in the world. This is quite an intrigue because even in old age, people still enjoy full lives. You will not have had a full Ikaria experience if you do not engage in the day-long feasts where people eat goat stew and wash it down with red wine.
Yoga strives to bring about balance between the mind and body which the natural environment of Ikaria Island promotes. By using the natural environment to blend in yoga classes, anyone watching a yoga class taking place on the Island cannot ignore the dance rhythm it creates. This is why most yoga retreats on the island offer an opportunity to participants to experiment with techniques that align to any personal needs they have.
During the 6 days of yoga retreat scheduled for between 24 June and 29 June 2017, yoga instructor Fotini Bitrou will work with you to calm the mind and strengthen the body using inner qualities you might never have known you had. At a cost of only €370 you will get to delve into this experience of self-awareness as you enjoy and soak in the beautiful scenery around you.
