    My style of yoga:

    Slow Flow Vinyasa
    I like to use the deep breathing as a method of moving the mind and body into a mindful meditative and transformative Yoga practice that is available to people with all levels of practice.

    Our practice style of Yoga together will be reflective of the time of day and the qualities of the Ayurvedic doshas, (states of being; Vata, Pitta, Kapha). For instance, to move Kapha dosha, or stagnant energy will have a more vigorous and flowing practice, whereas in the evenings, we will be cooling the fires of Pitta dosha and grounding and balancing Vata dosha in more restorative yoga practices that emphasize pranayama, chanting and meditation.

    We will be working with plants and making herbal remedies so much of our meditation practice with be in commune with plant spirits and the plants we work with they have to offer. My retreat offering:

    Spring time is a very special time of year to be on Silver Island! It is alive with healing plants! We will take full advantage of the season as we forage for wild Peppermint, Chamomile, Nettles, Cypress, St. John's Wort, Walnuts, Geraniums and Olive leaves and other surprises for herbal remedies we will concoct ourselves.

    The theme for the week is Connecting with Ancestral Herbal Healing Wisdom. I invite you to bring a journal and get ready for a week of mindful introspection. According to Ayurvedic thought, everything can be broken down to be a combination of the 5 elements, earth, water, fire, air and space.

    Space + Air combine to create Vata dosha, wind, which governs movements, thoughts, nerves and energy in the body/mind/spirit.

    Fire + Water combine to create Pitta dosha, fire which governs digestion, metabolism, body temperature and all transformations in the body/mind/spirit.

    Water + Earth combine to create Kapha dosha, water which governs the mucous membranes, the structure, it is the glue that keeps us together in the body/mind/spirit.

    Plants have a similar cellular structure to our own, making them very effective and are easily adaptable in our body. Learn how plants are used medicinally, and actually infuse your own herbal oils.

    We weave the sister sciences of Yoga + Ayurveda into a living practice that empowers our lives and governs the healthy choices we make. We will have a 2 hour morning and evening Yoga session.(Please see style of Yoga for more specifics).

    We will also have a special evening of Agni Hotra, which is a traditional, purifying fire ceremony, out on "Sunset Rock".

This aromatherapy session has profound effects.

    Traditional Thai Massage - €80 / hour
    Traditional Thai Massage is also called Thai Yoga Therapy or Traditional Thai Yoga Massage, because the therapist uses their hands, knees, legs and feet to move ones body into a series of Yoga-like stretches. Muscle compression, joint mobilization and acupressure-like movements are also used during treatment. It is preformed on the floor on a mat. The receiver wears loose fitting clothes and is encouraged to be as relaxed as they possibly can, while focusing on the rhythm of their breath as they slow it down to create a meditative effect. Many people feel that Thai massage is like doing Yoga without any work. This treatment involves no oils.
