Come on a journey into yoga & music to nourish your soul & fuel your wellbeing for one beautiful week in Greece!
In our modern world, where “busy” has become a lifestyle and we’re constantly running after the next thing, this retreat invites you to experience a nourishing week of simplicity and calm – it’s a week for you to retreat and unwind in a gentle, supportive space filled with yoga, mindful music, sun, sand and ease.
About the Retreat
Throughout our retreat, yoga and music are intertwined to take you on an rejuvenating journey within. Both yoga and music involve concentration and surrender, which allows us to enter a state of flow. In flow we get to still our minds, shake off burdens we’ve been holding onto, and access feelings of joy and fulfilment. Together yoga and music are a true power couple letting us reconnect to our deeper selves and celebrate life to the fullest!
To meet the needs of our international community, the retreat will be given in both German & English.
Retreat Program Overview
Every morning you’ll meet with Jeanette for a Hatha yoga session that’s focused on mindful flow sequences and breath work. Each session will end in a unique way, often set to live, ambient music. On selected evenings you ’ll attend gentle Yin Yoga sessions supported by live music. Each musical experience will be uniquely designed around the theme for that specific class, allowing you to explore the topic in a soft, guided way.
On other evenings you’ll have the opportunity to attend a combined restorative yoga & sound healing session, a live concert with mixed musicians, and a group Kirtan & meditation session. One afternoon will also be used for a voice & mantra workshop to learn how we use our voice in empowering ways for speaking and singing, as well as for singing mantras.
