Summary

1 week Yoga holiday on the beautiful Greek island Paros with teacher Oona Giesen. Yoga holiday, no boot camp, with enough time to enjoy the island. Classes suitable for every-body, from completely new to yoga, up to yoga teachers. Individual correction, and also there is room to ask questions. Oona has 45 years of yoga experience and is organizing and teaching this yoga holiday for almost 30 years now.

Due to a car accident in which she broke her spine, she became an expert of experience in managing back problems with yoga. Basic Hatha Yoga with a lot of influence from Iyengar. No nonsense yoga, no chanting, no mystifying, but focus on alignment of the spine and connecting mind-breath-body to be better connected with yourself. International awarded as best European yoga retreat in 2018.

Classes based on the system of Mr. B.K.S. Iyengar, but with a softer approach. The yoga studio is located 300 meters from the sea. Small groups ensure that you will get a lot of personal attention and correction. Therefore the classes are suitable for all levels, also beginners and those without yoga experience. If necessary the exercises will be adapted to your personal level. You don't need to bring anything with you; everything needed is in the studio

Most people come alone and it is easy to find like-minded people and make new friends. We have a welcome- and goodbye dinner together but the rest of the week you are free to do whatever you want. Many nice restaurants literally at the seaside, only 300 meters walking from Aliki Panorama Rooms, a wonderful completely renewed 'yoga hotel'.

  • morning yoga class
  • accomodation
  • breakfast buffet
  • transfer on arrival and departure
  • welcome- and goodbye dinner
