Take your yoga practice deeper and wake up to joy, love and freedom

June 7th - June 14th 2019

 

If you are looking to learn practical skills and techniques to integrate yoga into your daily life, then join us in the beautiful coastal town of Latchi, Cyprus for 8 days of exploration and immersion into the practice and philosophy of engaged yoga. 

Experience how yoga can offer you a real opportunity to access true joy and freedom, and have all your yoga-related questions answered by Christopher Gladwell – one of the UK’s most experienced and senior yoga teachers.

On this journey we will strengthen the relationship between the body, mind and spirit and deepen our knowledge and experience of yoga tantra –  the backbone of engaged yoga – through daily practices of movement, meditation, breath and mantra. Together, in community, we will unplug from our everyday routines, and plug into ourselves and our true nature.

We are providing two options; a 5-day long-weekend, or for those wishing to really benefit from the immersion, the full 8-day retreat. The 8-day immersion will qualify you for a certificate of attendance, which will go towards further trainings with Chris and Emma.

Beach view from Afrodite Beach Hotel


Check-in is after 3pm on June 7th for both the 5-day and the 8-day attendees. Flights and transportation from Paphos airport are not included in the price, but we are happy to help and advise you regarding any transportation needs.

Cyprus boasts an impressive 326 days of sunshine per year, and is famous for its hospitality and Mediterranean lifestyle. The Aphrodite Beach Hotel is a family run business located half a kilometre from the natural wonders of the Akamas Peninsula National Park, and a stone’s throw from the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

During the retreat, you will learn a systematic approach to asana yoga, breathwork, mindfulness, compassion and meditation, gaining a real understanding of the link between the mind, body and emotions. The pragmatic approach that both Chris and Emma take to teaching will empower you to make these powerful practices really work for your individual needs and requirements.
