Healthy mind in a healthy body
Health is wealth, peace of mind, happiness and yoga .
We invite you to visit Pelion, the mountain of Myths that will inspire your spirit and soothe your soul, combined with holiday programs, which aim to lead you to the emancipation of the spirit from matter, emphasizing the “effort” of the individual and “self-discipline” for the sake of which the concentration of the Spirit is accomplished.
Pelion is the place that offers inspiration and also helps the visitor to relax, giving moments of tranquility and revitalization. We offer you the options with the best possible practices, through experienced associates. A hiking in this place, known for its abundance of medicinal herbs, and a dive in the crystal waters of the Aegean or Pagasetic Gulf, can convince even the most skeptical that this area is a blessing. Each member of the group, from the beginner to the advanced, will receive individual attention in a relaxed atmosphere by our highly qualified teachers. With many years of experience, they approach their students with great enthusiasm and are totally committed to them.
The yoga classes taught cover the physical teachings of Hatha yoga with emphasis on the spiritual and holistic aspects of the yoga tradition. They include Asanas, Pranayama (Breathing practices) and Meditation.
Our yoga tour generally lasts 10 to 14 days.
During this period we have two yoga practices every day and two days off (free of yoga practice).
Every other day we have morning yoga class, which starts at 7:30 and lasts about an hour and a half. We do a lot of Pranayama and soft Hatha yoga practice which is meant to give us strength for the rest of our day.
Evening yoga class usually starts around 17:00 and differs from the morning one. During this class we do power balances as well as advanced Asanas for stretching. In the end of the evening class we usually do meditation.
Some of the aspects that we cover in yoga tour are:
1) Pranayamas – the basics of breathing techniques;
2) Asanas for chest-pelvis opening and for spine stretching;
3) Series of asanas for healthy back;
4) Inverted (upside-down) asanas;
5) The secrets of mastering arm balance asanas;
6) Relaxation, meditation for aura healing, for steadiness of mind and body.
The theoretical part of yoga tour covers the following topics:
1) Correct way of doing each asana and how to breathe.
2) “Healthy back” – the do`s and don’ts if you have back problems.
3) The basics of building your own practice.
What you get from the yoga tour
Yoga is not a substitute for remedy or medication, though it can significantly reduce daily stress. Pranayamas and asanas help you relieve mental and muscle tension, calm your mind and strengthen immunity as well as find perfect balance in your body.
