Yoga, Fitness & the Joy of Life! Naxos Week 1
We invite you to a yoga program that will mobilise all of you! It will make your body stronger, it will stretch your muscles and bring you joy and fulfilment. Through a combination of yoga, calisthenics, yogic breathing, fast pace walking, swimming and related exercises in & out of the sea, we guarantee you will feel completely rejuvenated, refreshed and energised! We have created a program that utilises your own physical resources in order to advance your health in a balanced way. You follow your own body’s wisdom as it is the only coach that knows better your limits. Our exercise field is a 3 km beach front with soft sand and crystal clear waters overlooking the sunset and the island of Paros. Our priority is your level of enjoyment and sense of control with cardiovascular fitness, physical and mental strength being the secondary objectives. We provide you with the ideas, we exercise together, we encourage you and we swim together in the water. Ultimately though, it is you who chooses the intensity, repetitions, and length of the activities. It is a great way to start the day and although it may add years to your life, it will definitely add health, pleasure and fun in your days!
The daily program starts at 07:00 with a 20 minute fast walk (according to your own pace). We continue with cleansing and invigorating pranayama (yogic breathing) to awaken and stir the energy in the body followed by callisthenics, sun salutations or related movements. Then we move into the crystal clear morning sea for a refreshing swim and we end with specific pranayama for complete relaxation and a restful heart rate. The morning session lasts about 2 to 2.5 hours.
After a nutritious breakfast, the day is yours to explore the island, to swim, to rest, read and reflect.
At 19:00, we have the evening session of gentle Yoga asanas, Antigravity or Qigong which ends with Meditation at the sound of flute as the sun sets.
At night, the atmosphere is so clear that you can see the Milky Way…!
Be all that you can be in Naxos 1!
