Yoga Retreat in Kea Island, Greece

JULY 17-23

With Tanya Popovich

On this retreat we will be shedding the layers that veil our essence in order to reconnect with our embodied self.

Through conscious breathwork, dynamic movement of Vinyasa Yoga, classical esoteric yogic practices for intentional and focused energy cultivation, and meditation and hypnotherapy techniques we will come back to our authentic nature.

Morning Yoga:
Includes energizing and balancing breathwork, dynamic Vinyasa Yoga suitable for all levels, and a meditation or guided relaxation practice.

Afternoon Practices:
Dedicated to slower, more mindful movement through gentle, Yin or Kundalini Yoga, calming and tranquilizing breathwork and guided Hypnotherapy.


Vital Wheels Theory

introduction and theory of our energetic anatomy (Chakras) and its relevance to human psychology. In Yogic tradition, the human body has seven energy centers called chakras. Each one corresponds to a different aspect of our life, such as embodiment, survival, security, movement, fluidity, sensation, relationships, boundaries, sense of worth, confidence, etc. We will go through each center and what it represents physically and psychologically and how it influences our life.

Vital Wheels Practice

Yoga and embodiment practices for each chakra When these energy centers are healthy, with ample energy flowing through them, with no blockages in either the incoming or the outcoming energy, so are we – physically, emotionally, and in our relationships. But when they are blocked through injury, illness, or disconnection from ourselves and others, this imbalance shows up in our lives. We will explore in this session practices for each energy center and ways in which to enhance the energy flow and exchange.

Closing Ceremony

Our time together culminates in a beautiful closing ceremony where we share a circle of love, trust, friendship and a deeper embodiment within ourselves. Expect a guided meditation, soul-gazing practice and a sharing circle. Please wear all white clothes.

This retreat is about understanding that we hold the medicine we need in order to transform our lives. It will be a safe healing space that will bring us together in community in order to come back to ourselves, to make friends, and to celebrate existence. By slowing down and reconnecting to the rhythms of nature, we will align with the beauty of the present moment.

It is a week of cultivating joy, space to reflect, rest and abundant self-love.
