The web works for Yoga On Crete

Posted on

ad-shooting-yoga-on-crete-blue-seaAt the beginning of July last summer, and for three days, yoga-on-crete-behind-cameraalthough life continued as normal at YogaOnCrete, an advertisement filming crew gave a different, exciting feel to the place, behind the scenes.

One of the highlights of their visit was a 5.30 am boat-trip to Sweet Water beach to catch the soft morning light, following the commands of the director, a now new yoga enthusiast! I had the pleasure of showing them my favourite diving spot, from the Three Rocks outside the village harbour, as well as the beautiful architecture and serenity of the abandoned Aradaina village. We took a boat trip to the nearby village of Loutro and experienced the area's magical turquoise waters up close, and once their work was done, they had a taste of some, much needed it seemed, yoga.

Special thanks to George Chorevas for coordinating the project, director Thanasis Tsimpinis and the rest of the team for their beautiful work, and all the joyful beings who patiently and happily took part!!

Here is the final product of this project:

Summer memories from YogaOnCrete

Posted on

With winter approaching confidently also on Crete, it is time to look back and reflect namaste-yoga-on-crete-deck-classon the wonderful experiences, people, and memories gained from this summer at YogaOnCrete!

Unfortunately, our Sound and Voice Therapy and Movement Medicine workshop with Laura did not take place in June, but the summer was nevertheless complete with expressive, artistic, as well as other soul-nourishing, and in this sense, therapeutic experiences.

Our new outdoor yoga deck is itself a real gift and wonderful addition to the ambience of YogaOnCrete. The first time I saw it filled with people I was really moved and excited about what our future guests would have the opportunity to experience here. Yes, there are ants and the odd olives dropping from the trees (!!), but the three strong olive tree trunks, interspersed in the space, are themselves teachers of rooting, trusting the earth, and drawing from it as a base to reach up to the sky, with soft, supple, graceful branches.

The precious human birth

Posted on

"The Buddha gave a teaching known as "the precious human birth", in which he described how rare and precious it is to take birth as a human in the vast cosmological scheme, and how as a human it is so rare and precious to experience just the right mixture of pleasure and pain to undertake deep spiritual inquiry.

Why practice yoga?

Posted on

The practice of yoga is a dive into the deep. In a way, there is no turning back, as we start to see ourselves, others, life in general in all its different expressions through new eyes. Are we ready for this change? Why embark on this practice?
