I have long dreamed about my team and me practicing yoga in a place full of energy, in Itilo of Mani, where the stones are united with the light and form a dynamic painting containing all the natural elements.
In the end, we lived a blessed experience in early February 2019 in the most representative part of authentic Greece
I will begin from the beautiful faces that framed my “painting”, on a canvas where the clouds and the sun mingled with the sea, the imposing mountains and the stone. There I painted the 4 seasons, which although we were in the last month of winter, it was as if springtime had arrived in the Laconian Mani. Like magicians, we transformed the restaurant of the unique Petra & Fos Boutique Hotel with the incredible view of the magnificent bay, in a mystical yoga room by placing a special floor for our lessons.
The studio was comfortable for 20 people and because of the high participation that reached 40 people, I divided the practice into two sessions in the morning and two in the afternoon, except Saturday afternoon when we, as a whole team, shared an hour of nidra yoga. An incredible moment of awareness for all of us, as our hearts became one, with common ground our search for ourselves.
The landscape, the hospitality and the group’s psychology helped us to stage an unforgettable three-day experience of relaxation, rejuvenation and tranquility
Our excursions are also full of team spirit and communication and it was the reason for our excursions to Gerolimenas, Areopolis and Diros Caves. I will not forget, of course, the party that was set up, just like that, on Saturday night on the occasion of my friend Eugenia’s birthday.
My painting is full with beautiful places that will be carved in my memory and in my soul for the incredible energy I got from the place and the people.
Grateful to be alive…
