Going Into the Light: Cultivate an Inner Sense of Well-Being through Yoga with Laura Jane Mellencamp
An authentic Greek beach retreat awaits…
Join Laura Jane Mellencamp and fellow like-minded friends for an intimate yoga retreat on one of the most beautiful Greek islands in the Aegean Sea, Amorgos. Let yourself bask in the natural beauty of the soothing azure blue ocean and fabulous beaches, hike the ancient footpaths leading through rocky terrain, and explore the incredible traditional architecture while nourishing your body, mind, and soul with yoga, adventure, and community.
After centering yourself in your morning yoga practice, spend the day exploring historic towns, hiking one of seven footpaths on the island (mapped and sign-posted), or visiting the Monastery of the Virgin Mary Hozoviótissa, a 10th-century cliffside monastery and the island’s top attraction. The island is also home to scenic bays, underwater caves, and golden beaches reachable by foot (or by boat) and ideal for swimming and diving. Watch the sunset as you dine on fresh locally sourced Greek cuisine and organic produce while sipping ouzo and laughing with friends old and new.
An Unforgettable Yoga Experience
Using the practice of meditation and the depth of Patanjali’s yoga sutras, Laura Jane has designed this week to support you in finding tools to cultivate greater awareness towards self-healing and transformation. The retreat includes storytelling, chanting, asana, and meditation to truly bring the tools of yoga into your daily life.
Yoga classes will blend the disciplines of various styles of Hatha yoga with the mindfulness of meditation in this like-minded community. They will cover the fundamental principles underlying the therapeutic application of yoga and how to incorporate these principles into your practice. Work to dissolve old blockages, unravel samskaras, and create new pathways to vibrant health and happiness. The end result will be one of the most incredible, unforgettable yoga experiences you will ever have.
It is perfect for all levels of practitioners, yoga teachers, and bodywork therapists.
