On our Aerial and Yin Yoga retreat we will start each morning with a gravity reversing, joint reviving Aerial yoga class in our spacious studio and end the day with a harmonizing, calming restorative Yin practice.
Aerial Yoga’s’ fiery stabilization and Yin yoga’s earthy sequences are a dynamic combination of action and pause.
In Yin Yoga we apply a passive and moderate stretch to the connective tissues, fascia, tendons and ligaments with the aim to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility. These poses are designed to improve the flow of prana and calm the mind.
Aerial Yoga is practiced with the use of silk hammocks that are used as props to increase strength and develop flexibility in the joints. The silks allow us to take the weight off of our feet, resulting in joint relief, reversed blood flow, and lymphatic drainage.
In Aerial Yoga all of the body parts gently move and stretch. The muscles rejuvenate, and the joints become stronger. We use our core strength to balance and stabilize during this practice.
The combination of these two unique practices results in a strong, relaxed body and mind.

This retreat will take place at Okreblue Eco Yoga retreat center. Okreblue is an authentic, self-contained yoga retreat center located on the Greek Island of Paros. Our seaside eco-retreat center overlooks the azure Aegean Sea. You can easily walk to “secret” sandy beaches with private coves and crystal waters. Our tastefully decorated accommodations, with private, en-suite bathrooms, are located on the same campus as 3, large, well equipped, open-air, indoor yoga shalas. The tranquil atmosphere of the center and its location among cedar groves and the pristine sea makes guests feel welcome and comfortable. Many return year after year, describing Okreblue as their “Home away from Home”. Okreblue retreat center offers the perfect environment to reconnect with mind, body, spirit, and nature.
