Sandra Berlin RetreatDuring daily Yoga for Climbers workshops, Sandra will be teaching how yoga can benefit your climbing performance, both physically and mentally, through strengthening and injury prevention exercises, movement and balance drills as well as breath and mindfulness work. She will also aim to show you how to incorporate yoga into your climbing routine, with warming up sequences in the morning and cooling down in the evenings.

Teachers

SANDRA BERLIN
Sandra is an experienced and passionate rock climbing coach and yoga teacher. She has been climbing since 2007 and 4 years later she decided to quit her role as a Marketing and Events Manager for a music festival to dedicate her life to climbing, working as an instructor/coach, route setter, duty, and operations manager at various walls across the South East of England. Sandra has been practicing yoga for over 15 years, and she is a Yoga Alliance qualified teacher. Over the years she has dedicated herself to teaching yoga to a wide range of people, mostly climbers, helping them to discover its benefits to support and improve their own climbing. “My yoga practice is well reflected in the way I climb and teach climbing, with detailed attention to perfect technique and body awareness.” Sandra’s love for Kalymnos started in April 2014 when she first visited the island with her partner and friends. She was immediately spellbound by its beauty, weather, warm people, delicious food and obviously the dramatic-looking crags with their amazing 3D routes. That year, she went back twice more and has been visiting Kalymnos every year since. It’s safe to say that she feels at home there and will
