Yoga is more than a system of physical exercise; it’s a practice that extends into and enriches every area of our lives. Going on retreat gives us an opportunity to deepen a practice which integrates our bodies, minds and spirits.

After the success of the previous season, Parkolife is pleased to re-launch the I Love Yoga Retreat, in Kithira.

With love as the focus, you will strengthen your yoga practice and dive into its holistic benefits, to bring transformation to your body, your emotions and your day to day life.

On the mat we will:

  • Connect body and breath using pranayama techniques

  • Access the power of the interior locks or bandhas to maximise the physical and mental benefits of the practice

  • Connect the individual asanas in flowing, fluid sequences of vinyasa flow.

Off the mat, we will use our practice as a jumping off point to expand our understanding of, and capacity to receive, love. As we experience love in our lives, we become aware of what is possible for ourselves, and of the potential that opens up when we connect fiercely and tenderly with others.

These retreats take place on the island of Kithira, known in ancient Greek mythology the birthplace of Aphrodite, goddess of love. Its tranquil coves, clear waters and laid back community make it the ideal place to explore the different aspects of love. Every retreat includes plenty of free time to soak up the environment of this beautiful island and explore its landscape and wildlife.

This retreat is for women and men.

Suitable for those with some experience of yoga or perfectly beginner, who are willing to explore more advanced poses.

Suitable for all levels of yoga.

If Chiara drew a picture of herself, she would be in a standing in warrior pose. She is strong, but her arms and heart are wide open.

These days, Vinyasa yoga, Hatha yoga and Acro Yoga become the three main areas which she practices and teaches. If you've also gone through a big life event, or you're feeling the call to make a change, to grow into the person you're meant to be in order to tap into your dreams, reach your goals, and transform your life, then Chiara would love to work with you.

Chiara is also a professional Spiritual Counselor and a Palmistry reader.
