Winter is the best time to look “inward”
This yoga retreat will provide you the qualities needed to work with your inner self and energy as a prelude to the renewal of spring. Your body like Nature, produces the appropriate medication needed for every season, as long as you know how to activate it. Winter is the time of the full internalization of energy. The energy does not just stay on the surface, it does not just come back from where it started in the spring, but it infiltrates into deeper levels, it comes to the root of things.
The root of life, the root of things is in the deepest layers. The most closely related to the energy behavior of the winter is water, as it tends to always move downward and through it to be driven into the inner levels. The kidneys and the bladder represent the element of water and the action of the winter. For Chinese medicine storage lies in the kidneys and the reproductive organs together with hair, head, bones, ears and mind. The cycle of the five elements begins in early February, then the beginning of spring and the organ that works the most is the liver. For this reason, the yoga retreat is scheduled during this period.
Together with Foteini Bitrou you will practice daily specific asanas, that combined with nutrition and meditation will help you penetrate to deeper levels and release your energy.
