Relax, Recharge & Recreate with Yoga, ACT & Mindfullness in Amorgos, Greece, October 4-8 2018

Give yourself a time-out to unwind, be inspired and get fresh insights before the winter sets in!
Time to slow down, to come to your senses and find freedom in body and mind. Yoga and mindfulness help us to relax, to cultivate awareness of the body-mind structure and to explore our comfort zones.
ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) gives us the tools to find our core values and motivation to create a fulfilling life.
Amorgos supports us with her presence of beauty, laid-back atmosphere, sun, sandy beaches and turquoise water.
During these five days we will mainly work practically together. We will use exercises, techniques and practices to come to a deeper understanding and acceptance of ourselves, to find our core values and commit to actions that will further our goals and attempts to live a life we can stand for. Yoga, mindfulness and relaxation exercises are entwined in the training sessions.
This retreat is for you if you:

  • need a break from your everyday life
  • want to rethink your life situation and find your core values
  • are looking for ways to relax and not become overwhelmed by the activities of the mind
  • want to learn to cope better with challenges and stressful situations
  • want to explore how Yoga and Mindfulness can enhance the quality of your life

We are two experienced facilitators and we will take a maximum of 14 participants so we can adapt the program individually.
The schedule
11.00-14.00: Yoga, icebreakers, houserules and starting up
09.00 Mindfulness & Yoga
10.00 Breakfast in Celini
11.00-14.00 Training
Free time
18.00-20.00 Training
MONDAY the course ends at 14.00
Monday 14.00 Lunch together
Outside the program you have the possibility to enjoy beach life, diving, hiking, rock climbing, clay work, massage, more yoga, good food or just relax and enjoy the Greek hospitality.
We do recommend that you arrive at least a day early and preferably that you also stay on for a day or two, or more if you can of course. It takes some time to land and ground yourself and to get used to the special Amorgos atmosphere. After the retreat it is nice to have some time to allow the work you will do during the training to sink in.
