Yoga for Women's Health Retreat in Crete, Greece
This Women’s Health Yoga Therapy Retreat is all about yoga for women’s health and vital energy throughout our lives. It shares techniques to feel, nurture and build the feminine energy of Shakti for the practical healing and benefit of women in all stages of life.
The Women’s Health Yoga Therapy Retreat is for all women either yoga practitioners or teachers, or even those with no relation to yoga who sense that yoga could be of more practical use to all women in managing health, vital energy and well-being. It is also suitable for holistic health-care practitioners who are working in the field of women’s health and would like to integrate the healing benefits of yoga with their own therapeutic practice.
All the issues covered are addressed within the context of a yoga therapeutic understanding of feminine emotional life, lunar cycles, anatomy and the play of the elements in the female body. Conscious respectful awareness of menstrual and other life cycles form the foundation of this approach to yoga therapy for women’s health.
The course combines theory and practice from hatha and tantra yoga to offer you new understandings and a deep appreciation of the healing power of yoga as therapy to optimise health and delight in feminine energy. Practices taught include: asana, pranayama, mudra, bandha, deep relaxation and profound meditations including yoga nidra, sound meditations, moving meditations, visualisations and chants to the deep feminine.

Here you can buy lunch, drinks etc. Azogires is a perfect place to relax where you can take peaceful walks in the woods, visit the small monastry, the village church, explore some local caves or simply spend time in the hammock or seats listening to the stream as it flows over the rocks and through the woodland.
The Hotel in Azogires has 8 large simple double and triple rooms with balconies and amazing views over the mountains and the sea.
