YUJ YOGA LAB
I welcome you to a journey of re-connecting with our higher divine. A trip to the enchanting Andros, a miniature of Greece combining the dry Cycladic landscape with the rich vegetation.
Together we will explore the body and its potential in different movement styles - Rocket, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Hatha and Conscious Connected Breathwork - offering an experiential approach on yoga for curious minds. I believe that in order to reach our full potential and find fulfillment we must be connected - mind to body and to ourselves.
You will feel this throughout the retreat.
In the Cyclades, there is a Greek island that certainly stands out. It stands out mainly because of nature, and the morphology which does not seems like the Cyclades. Above all, you not often see an island that combines the dry Cycladic landscape and abundant water , lush vegetation and rare wildlife. Museums, events, and neoclassical architecture. Countless beaches and imposing mountains. As a result, these geographical and morphological contrasts make it unique. This island is Andros.
Practice with Me
My name is Vasiliki and I am certified yoga teacher (E-500RYT) . I am running my own studio in Vienna, Austria and simultaneously I am sharing my love of teaching through workshops and trainings.
Each of my classes, workshops and events aim to unite body and mind and to reach a place of acceptance,
no matter where we are.
From Rocket Vinyasa for activating the Prana to Hatha for re-connecting physical and mental boby, classes for all levels, I encourage you to leave your expectations and experience the connection of breath and movement with me!
Expect a strong and powerful vinyasa designed to be accessible for all levels, along with some pranayama, kriyas and meditation. I will challenge you and push you beyond your comfort zone. When we say YES to the challenge,
we say YES to the growth!!!
Hatha meets Ashtanga. A combination of both which emphasizes to strengthening and stretching, relaxing and challenging, dynamic and static, for body and mind. Based on Hatha Yoga and first series of Ashtanga with a closing part of Yoga Nidra!
Handstands are not only fun and great in boosting our mood by relieving stress, they are also amazing in bringing out that childlike nature of bravery and courage that hides somewhere inside the adult versions of ourselves.
Exploration of acceptance through handstands!
Note from Vasiliki : Expect to come together, to make friends, and have a wonderful immersive and intimate experience. Do note that I recognize that this is your time and your holiday. Coming from the corporate world I have the utmost respect for this, so I will encourage you to take the retreat as it suits you. There will never be any pressure to do anything, I will be mindful of you enjoying your down time as well as your time with the group.
