Summer Yoga Retreat - Gathering the Light
Summer Yoga Retreat with Sianna Sherman, Zeyneb Uras, Masood Ali Khan & Konstantinos Charantiniotis
For the third year in a row, we gather to offer this exceptional Yoga retreat on Paros island. This retreat became a custom for us at Cihangir Yoga in Turkey and Bhāvanā Yoga in Greece and we are proud and happy to be able to bring together a worldwide community to share what we love.
This year, Zeyneb Uras and Konstantinos Charantiniotis come together with Sianna Sherman and Masood Ali Khan to offer you a transformational retreat!
Your 6-day yoga retreat takes place on the beautiful Cycladic Island of Paros, at the stunning Okreblue Hotel during the longest days of the year.
At this magical place, under the bright light, you will unfurl your heart rays in the Sun & Sea, practice yoga, chant mantras, soak in the life force energy, and rejuvenate in the magic of the Greek Islands. We gather as yogis in the days of summer to celebrate the power of light. As we magnify our own light, we supercharge the light in our communities and families. Daily rhythm includes but is not limited to: yoga, meditation, pranayama, chanting, dancing, live music, laughing, swimming in the sea, soaking in the sun, eating the most outrageously delicious Greek food, sleeping sweetly, bonding with beautiful beings, star-gazing, cat-napping and spontaneous adventures of immense JOY!
These six days offer a chance to connect with an international community of beautiful yoginis & yogis, along with four inspiring teachers. If you want to enchant your soul, delight your senses, and invoke the heart of yoga in the whole of your life, just … Come!
Come alone, Come as one, Come with friends, Come with your partner, Come whatever age you are and come whatever level of yoga you may be… all styles, all people, all welcome!
