YOGAMAGAYA IYENGAR YOGA RETREATS 2019

2019 RETREAT SCHEDULE

JUNE 17 – 22 Summer Solstice full moon and summer solstice friday 21 we will sneak into the God Asclepion’s ruins nearby dated 300bc for a meditation. In ancient days seekers and the sick would sleep at the ‘clinic’ and based on their dreams the healers prescribed a remedy. 

SEPTEMBER 2 – 7 the tourist scene is quieter and many agree this is the best time to visit the island. The water is still warm and you can find amazing isolated beaches

It’s very exciting for me to finally have my own space and to offer these Retreats!  You can use this retreat as a chance to ‘immerse’ yourself in The Practice, as the word RETREAT suggests, stepping back from daily routine, from the mundane. Everything is provided for you, so you can focus on PRACTICE.

Convenient. Restaurants, hotels minutes away and pristine beach within steps of yoga hall.  Quiet spots to watch the sunset and plenty of time for rest and reflection. Or, add it to your holiday plans between island hopping from Santorini and Mykonos and the incredible traditional island of Kouffonissia, and sightseeing.

My intention is to share with you the tools that have been offered me regarding this Intricate System, from some incredible teachers I’ve had the great fortune to work with, including Mr Iyengar himself and his family, and many of the Australian Senior Iyengar Yoga Teachers. And, set on this beautiful island with Greek Isle hospitality to make you feel safe and welcome, nutritious local food to energise and comfort, and a beautiful clean safe environment steps from the Aegean Sea where Greek Gods ruled to inspire you.  Where their Mythology was written and alters erected to them before Christ still stand. Lots of  free time to explore! Plus a down to earth easy going attitude to give space for learning. Your practice will have the chance be transformed to a Deeper Experience.

Yoga cannot be taught. it is learnt. You cannot have your teachers experience, you will have yours. 

See you on the matt?

  1. Tassos is an extraordinary teacher. He has a rare, deep knowledge and understanding of yoga, alignment mind, body and soul which he offers with humility, compassion and humour.
    He is gentle but encourages his class to challenge themselves, to trust and work deeply – to listen to them
    Inner teacher. It is unusual to find a teacher who is able to effortlessly encourage relative beginniners and advanced students in the same class but somehow he does.
    I came across him during a recent stay in Paros and I was quickly scheduling my days around his beautiful classes.
    Tassos is relaxed but structured and even though I have my own daily practice and am fairly experienced, I learned a great deal from his adjustments, wisdom and guidance.
    I don’t know when I will next be in one of his classes as I leave this beautiful island of Paros in a few days but I certainly hope it is very soon. X

    1. Thank you kindly Kim. I’ve had some extraordinary asana meditation and Life teachers !!! Thank you for acknowledging the work Hugs

  2. Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Ie, it looks fine but
    when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!
