RETREATS IN KYTHNOS, GREEK ISLANDS:

LOCATION&ACCOMODATION:
http://www.kforkythnos.com/k4kastellas.html Kythnos is a really beautiful island, an experience of Greece at it’s best. The island has magnificent beaches, great food cooked with fresh biological ingredients really picturesque whitewashed villages in a relaxed, calm, unspoilt atmoshere.
Kythnos K4Kastellas villas have been designed, contructed and decorated with great love and care.
It was in the end of June 2016 that the K4Kastellas villas opened and it makes for a really fantastic spot for yoga retreats. The villas are alone in a remote really special part of the island, Kastellas ( where an ancient acropolis used to exist) with magnificent Aegean views fantastic sunset and the gorgeous beach of Kastellas, a remote practically private beach) at a three minutes walk from the villas.

24th June – 1st July, UNFOLD THE SACRED FEMININE – YOGADANCE WOMEN RETREAT with live DJ

Life is an eternal dance and we are dancers connecting and flowing with the music of the Universe performing mysterious choreographies which can take us closer to our essence and make us feel complete and truly happy.

On this Retreat, We guide and help all the beautiful ladies unfolding their Sacred femininity and blossoming as beautiful flowers in the most spectacular colours and shades.

Yoga-dance is a special fusion of dance elements and traditional yoga asanas in a creative way. We are using dance movements, asanas, music, breath and working with the directions&elements of Nature and Chakras to raise our Shakti energy, experience&live our essence: the rising, gentle and yet powerful Goddesses we truly are.
To make this experience special and unforgettable, Roberta Nicholls is joining us to mix and play her amazing music specially created for this retreat..
It is a beautifully intimate and very unique retreat in a safe and loving environment – in the midst of Nature – where we open, share, connect and surrender ourselves to our most Sacred inner being.
Having a special and healthy connection with our Divine-feminine is essential so that we can see and feel our pure beauty, truly appreciate and love ourselves. This self-love and confidence enables us to create and live meaningful and valuable relationships in each field of our lives. In turn, this unity with ourselves and the world opens invisible doors and leads us to completeness and happiness.
