Luxury Yoga – Greek Island Retreat #3 Aegina

 

dsc_0651

Limited Spaces
Exclusive Luxury Villa for 10 persons 

Spend 7 nights in a luxury villa on the beautiful island of Aegina, with an infinity pool, sea and sunset views.   A Greek chef to spoil you with delicious healthy dishes and a yoga instructor to start & end your day.  A visit to Greece wouldn’t be the same without including a yacht experience, visiting nearby islands and some archaeological sites.

THE VILLA -  Villa One Eighty is a state-of-the-art designer 5 bedroom luxury villa with a spa area, an infinity pool and private access to the sea & beach at the foot of the property.   The spa area features a hammam, infrared sauna, jacuzzi, massage table, gym, shower, and separate w/c. At the bottom of the property a few stairs lead you to the sea and quiet beach. Guests also have access to the tennis court near-by which is shared with the next door villa.

Feel free to bring your partner or friend/s even if they aren’t into yoga.  There is plenty to keep them busy (or not) - they are welcome to join us!

alexia-1Yoga Instructor:  Alexia Katsigera

Type of yoga:  Hatha Yoga
Level:  All levels (beginners to advanced)
Languages:  English, French & Greek

Alexia was introduced to yoga in 1998, practicing Satyananda yoga for a year.  From then on, yoga became part of her daily life.  Yoga brought many positive changes in her life, body and mind after which she decided to share her knowledge with those around her.  In 2004 Alexia founded the yoga centre: “σωμαyoga” (somayoga:  soma = body)

To deepen her yoga practice and her internal search, Alexia travelled to India in 2005, met many teachers and studied yoga at Shivananda Centre in Kerala.  She considers the most exciting ‘school’ is life itself and believes it’s important to always be a student of life.  Alexia continues, with great enthusiasm, her study around yoga and self-awareness – taking part in workshops, lectures and classes all over the world and in Greece.

Her classes are focused on respecting the freedom and personal experience of each student, helping them to discover their own path to personal truth and self-awareness while focusing on their safety.

Alexia teaches hatha yoga, yoga for pregnant women, kids yoga and, following her own experience with her own baby, baby & toddler yoga – She has studied with Birthlight, Yogabeez International and Greville Kids Yoga.
