FYKIADA RETREATS + JESS LEBLANC
JUNE 16-21, 2018
Kythnos is an undiscovered island hidden on an endless coastline and a rocky landscape. This Embodied Adventure is a unique experience where guests enjoy swims on our private bay, relaxed moments by the pool or on the rocks, yoga with 360° sea view, walks in picturesque villages and local food tasting. From remote beaches to hiking and beach hopping, an incredible experience awaits. Relax. Move. Breathe + enjoy with us.
ABOUT THE ADVENTURE
Change can be frightening, and waiting for that feeling of safety to come along before one makes a move only results in more internal torment. The only way to acquire that feeling of security is to enter the whirlwind of change and come out the other end, feeling alive again. Uniting the heart, mind + spirit.
When we choose to adventure outward in breathtaking natural settings while surrounded by amazing people and community we feel safe and compelled to also venture inward. When immersed in the beauty around us, we fully experience the wild grander of Nature and see the need for reverence and protection of Mother Earth. Through this act we embody our own place within the wondrous world and see ourselves as equally deserving of honour and respect. Self awareness, through embodied practice such as movement, meditation, breath, play, conversation and connection can change the way you live in your skin.
Embodied Adventure gives us the opportunity to deeply feel aligned and attune to that which surrounds us and integrate the natural rhythms of life.
The Yoga sessions will include discussion, journal activities, reflection and tangible tools to support living life in alignment physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. The goal is to connect people to themselves and to share the experience and fun with a global community, one that remains strong and grows over time helping to elevate one another in their dreams and lives.
Each day will be themed out of one natural element, the Wind, the Sea, the Sun, and the Land. Sessions and activities will be inspired by Kythnos raw nature and the deep blue that will surround us providing us with the material needed to get out and play.
A full day of outdoor Adventure will be the ultimate embodiment of freedom and movement where we'll experience a day trip to the two most beautiful beaches of Kythnos (Apokrousi and Kolona) and kayaking from one bay to the other as well as a short hike up to the remote church of Kolona beach.
