Settling into Stillness: A Greek Island Yoga Retreat
Prices from $1289 double. Register with a PDF form here.
For some... just being by the sea, breathing the fresh air scented with wild jasmine, walking barefoot on the earth, resting in the cool shade of an olive tree and eating fresh vegetarian food is deeply nurturing to the soul.
Add... a two hour daily
Kripalu Yoga class, yoga workshops, group meditations, exquisite
heart-opening chanting with Alexis Zorbas co-owner Anadi Nocke, yoga philosophy satsangas, a soothing massage
or two, and an attitude of "nothing to do, nobody to be and
nowhere to go" and you will begin to observe yourself settling
At Alexis Zorbas
Retreat Center, on the northwest coast of the Greek Island of Corfu,
you are far away from the ringing phone, TV monitors, the constant
news reports, the traffic jams and the responsibilities and routine
of your life. Although free WiFi is now available you can choose to cut back to only essential connection.
Here you may take rest and slow down...
slow way down. Hang out at the beach or pool, read, wander through the olive groves, practice yoga, and enjoy solitude or the company of new friends.
If you are ready for an opportunity to travel
on the yogic path of self-discovery, to treat your body to deep
relaxation and to feel truly alive, then this may be the perfect
yoga beach vacation for you.

We will have the special priviledge to participate in a kirtan offering by Alexis Zorbas co-owner Anadi Nocke. I have known Anadi since 2003 and have been in many of his kirtans. His offering is a special blend of Sanskrit, Persian (Sufi), English and German chants that contrast the femine with the masculine voice and then merge both to create a heart-opening experience. A true taste of Bhakti yoga.
