“Mind in body”, workshop/ retreat yoga holidays in Greece (23rd – 29th September 2018) with Ishat

“Learn to give the body just what you need. Besides relaxing with a Healthy holiday”

Refresh your mind, body, and spirit with a truly exceptional yoga holiday at "Evia Silence" place.

Tucked away in the mountains of Greece's beautiful Evia Island (Greece's second largest island) overlooking the Porto Buffalo Bay coastline and the crystal clear Euboean sea.

In this retreat, additionally and during the breaks, you’ll have plenty of time for yourself. “Evia Silence” is just a one-minute walk from the door to the sea, and provides accessible docks for swimming and sunbathing. It is also neighbours an array of beautiful trails and small roads that are perfect for anyone looking to jog, trek, or venture into the wilderness of their mountainside.

About the restaurant, “Evia Silence” have a chef A.Giannakaris prepares high-quality food using only the finest of local produce and ingredients. He combines traditional Greek and international cuisine with the goal of fulfilling an array of palates.

Who is the workshop suitable for?

“Mind in body” is a methodology for both beginners and those wanting to improve their technique in order to integrate as a unity the techniques of Shri Vivek Yoga*, Meditation* and techniques of Tantra*. It is a holistic approach that brings all the attention of the mind to observe the body and its needs of expression at all times.

About the workshop:

To achieve the connection with yourself, it is important to be aware of everything your body manifests as a need. If you are focusing on yourself, as if you were an observer and the body was your observation object, you will be then entirely in the current moment and activity.

"Mind in body" methodology is a very useful tool not only for the moment of your mat, but also for our complex lives. And just like everything else in life, the result should come through effort and by the habit we are willing to create for ourselves. Only through a habitual attitude do responsibility, trust, gratitude, and self-esteem increase.

At the end of the workshop students will have learned:

To explore the basic integration of the human being: body, mind and energy, and merge it with your need.

You will learn to get out of the habit of devaluing yourself and others through comparison and competition. It deepens your self-awareness and self-acceptance. When you see and recognize yourselves as you are, then rises a natural instinct of self-concentration and automatically the presence of oneself.

The habit of being "mind in body" gives you as well, an automatic effect of saving energy. So you will learn to be nothing more than your action, as a need that the present demands. With "mind in body's" technique, you'll be trained to see the parts of your body that require action and the parts that need to be relaxed.

Seeing the causes and consequences of everything you do, is the state of "mind in body". This is the goal of this workshop as a substantial technique to give the body just what you need and to be healthy, learning to live a more vivid life by seeing things as they are..

In this workshop you will explore the techniques of:

* Shri Vivek Yoga (integration): to focus on the body’s needs, and on oneself. Shri Vivek Yoga is a traditional concept originating in India and based on master Shri Guruji Swami Vivekananda’s teachings. The Shri Vivek Yoga teachings are founded on the four pillars of Yoga – asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), kriyas (a sequence of physical and mental changes), sutras (knowledge). Shri Vivek yoga is designed to integrate all the techniques of yoga to restore physical, mental and spiritual well-being. You will set up your body with Shri Vivek Yoga approach getting the knowledge of body language and manage your ‘mind chatter’.

* Meditation (mindfulness): which consists of the ability to be fully aware of our experience in the present moment, observing without judging, with focus, curiosity, openness, acceptance and relaxation. Meditation is the art of concentrating on one thing as well as the art of being present with experience, emotions, and thoughts as they occur.

* Tantra (transform energy): is a universal science of movement expression that transforms energy and directs attention to where the energy emerges, from where it is born originally. The goal is to heal the mind, balancing the polarity (mental duality) focusing on the emerging energy as if you were an observer and the body was your transformation object. The Tantra technique aims to break up patterns, habits and blocks within the physical and emotional body, thereby allowing for new impulses to be expressed and new behaviours to be explored.
