Imagine daily yoga practice in nature: What would it be like to live on the water, continuously feeling that gentle movement of the waves like being in a mother’s womb? And how about diving into the crystall clear blue first thing you get up, or meditating at sunrise? Certainly you will enjoy the contrast of the refreshing Sea to the intense Yoga sessions. And finally, at the day’s end, after worshipping the sunset, you will glide into a deep sleep, safely sheltered in your cosy cabin and carried by the softly rocking boat on the water
This yoga sailing retreat is suitable for all levels of Yoga practice!
Even if you have never been on a sailboat before, the Ionian Sea is the ideal place to try it – it is known for it’s calm seas with little swell!
On this Holistic Yoga Voyage, Ajanta will guide your well-being according to the principles of Hippocrates. For each person there is an ideal treatment, so the yoga therapy, food, drinks, meditations and relaxation, the entire schedule, will be balanced according to your individual temperament. You will practice this holistic approach to selfcare throughout this unique yoga sailing retreat.
With the energy of the Sun, the therapeutic effect of the Sea, and the “Sound of Silence” this has the potential to be a life changing experience.
Ajanta, Argyro Gerochristou has been maintaining a deeply spiritual and holistic way of life since her youth. She has since then continuously studied natural alternative therapies and applied her knowledge professionally.
Ajanta was initiated to the yogic way of life in the Satyananda Ashram in Athens, where she became a certified Satyanada Yoga teacher soon afterwards. Since more than a decade she teaches yoga, pranic breathing and meditation in her own studio, villas and on private yachts. Ajanta continues to be inspired by the positive changes and transformations that yoga induces on physical, mental and emotional level in people.
Her repertoire includes naturopathy and nutrition therapy, biomolecular therapies for facial and body rejuvenation, body massage and Spa therapies, craniosacral therapy, Thai massage, Tuina, therapeutic Reiki, Usui Reiki, electro acupuncture, Reconnection Therapy by David Pearl and more.
