in Kapsali, Kithira-Greece.

Parkolife and Chiara are happy to propose "I Love Yoga" retreat for the second season. The reason? The past summer has left some great moments in the memory of those who participated and the enthusiasm in the people who welcomed the group at Kithira. This retreat is dedicated to those who love Yoga as a physical and mental discipline, and for those who have the purpose of deepening new practices in Pranayama, Hatha and Vinyasa.

The date available are:

-From the 24th to the 30th of June.

-From the 7th to the 13th of July.

 

Description

Real love is found in both the second and fourth Chakra of the heart. The heart is a purely spiritual chakra. The energy of the heart moves in spirals. It is full of twists and turns.

With an open heart, we will attract others with open hearts. We all need love to be healthy. 

 

In order to receive real love from another, the greatest human gift, we must first accept all of the truths about ourselves. Without this,  we will never know love. If we haven’t yet accepted who we really are, and learned to treasure this person fully, then we can’t give or receive real love. Loving oneself is birth place of true love!

 

Come to unplug,

to discover your inner self, to relax and learn who you really are, because this is the path toward self-realization.

We believe that each one of us is a lovely person, searching for our own piece of happiness!

 

 

Relaxation, inner balance, self-awareness, and tranquility will be the main focuses of this retreat. You will feel the grace and tranquility of the bright Kithirian waters, birthplace of the love Goddess Aphrodite -  and forget all the through relaxation. 

This vacation is for those who want to clear out the dust of urban life and return to a feeling of lightness and simplicity. 

What distinguishes them from other retreats is that we provide all of the information and lead your health, detox and yoga education. There are multiple workshops and talks with subjects ranging from nutrition, life-coaching, meditation, pranayama, and sleep enhancement. During the retreat you will also experience a creativity and expression sessions using the caviardage technique.

 

Yoga

Yoga sessions are designed to get your healthy body back, balance your hormones, stretch you out and allow you to feel more open. We’ll help you to become more flexible, to remove the tension in your muscles and make you feel more free in your own body. This new flexibility will then help to influence your attitude towards daily life. Open body and open mind!

Yoga nourishes you on every level. It is equally important to feed the body, mind, and spirit. So during the retreat, we concentrate on the practice of asana (yoga postures), pranayama (breath control), and dhyana (meditation).

Through the use of the Hatha yoga system, we invite you to begin or to continue your yogic journey with us so that you can experience feelings of total well being and release those feelings of happiness, love, laughter, harmony and fun. We’ll also help you to work towards life’s true success - that of a peaceful mind.

Kithira island -Location:

This yoga holiday will take place in Kithira, one of the wildest Greek islands.

The ancient myth that referred the island as Aphrodite’s birthplace has been the inspiration for the paintings of celebrated artists such as Sandro Botticelli and Jean-Antoine Watteau. 

Now, a trip to Kýthera is the symbol of a burning desire, of hankering for beauty; and not unjustly so.

You will be staying in Kapsali, a small village by the sea with a traditional community feel. It still largely upholds the true rural Kithirian ethics of simplicity, kindness, and hospitality.

Near the picturesque village of Kapsali, that are visible from the Castle of Chora, are two twins sandy bays. The smaller one consists of small rocks and is quite remote, while the other one offers a refreshing swim at the beautiful crystal waters.

Kapsali is one of the most popular beaches of Kythira lined with restaurants and cafes. Due to its safe and pleasant environment it is quite ideal for families and children. Visitors are amazed by the stunning mountain backdrop and the cosmopolitan atmosphere. The rocky islet of Avgo can be seen offshore, forming a strange shape, reminding of Uranus genitals, thrown by Cronus in the sea from which Aphrodite roused. The locals claim that it is the birthplace of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and desire.

 

Kithira island -Getting there:

There are a lot of ways to come to Kythira. 

  • By Plane from the international Airport of Athens.
  • By boat from Piraeus.
  • By car up to Gythion and Neapoli Lakonias and from there again by boat.
  • If you come from Crete you can take the boat in Kasteli of Kissamos (district of Chania).
  • Furthermore, there are flying dolphins departing from the port of Piraeus.

To choose your way to Kithira, read here what Andrew Bostock from The Telegraph wrote about it:

“Kythira can be troublesome to get to, a positive advantage in the perfect island stakes. It is not close to any of the better known islands, lying on its own at the bottom of the Peloponnese peninsula. You can fly there, but only on local flights, and the familiar UK package tour is unknown on the island. The best way to arrive is by boat. This can be done, rather indirectly, from Athens or, more pleasurably, from the little southern port of Neapoli, after a journey that can take in some of the delights of the Peloponnese itself”.
