Greece Retreat 2018

May 19-26, 2018 at YogaRocks Crete, Greece

Conscious Living and the Blue Lung

Nora Heilmann and Tamar Samir are delighted to be offering another week-long retreat at YogaRocks, this time in late spring. The proximity of the ocean has inspired us to look deeply into the interconnectivity and environmental relevance of the earth’s blue lung. Many references in yogic texts describe our state of interbeing as an ocean of awareness. All life on earth depends on the balance and biodiversity of mother ocean.

During this week you are invited to take a deep dive into meditation, pranayama, dynamic vinyasa classes, restorative practice, and yoga philosophy. Together we will co-create an inspiring week of conscious living and collective sharing. There will be plenty of time to play music, relax and enjoy the chilled out vibe at YogaRocks swinging in a hammock under the stars. If you play a musical instrument, please bring it along! We will enjoy our mornings until breakfast in silence (not talking). This retreat is vegan.

Nora and Tamar have both been teaching yoga since 2007. They come from a background in visual and performing arts and love to explore and share the art of conscious living. Their teaching style has been influenced by Ashtanga, Iyengar, Vinyasa, Jivamukti, classical Hatha Yoga, martial arts, dance, movement research, breath research, meditation, and the study of yoga philosophy. They aspire to facilitate an open sharing of yoga practice as a collective movement towards compassion, kindness and peace between all species on planet earth.
