In a different seminar on the history of art, the image is freed from its shackles. It comes to remind us, or even to create new, emotions, to socio-politically communicate the past with the present, to inspire the future. Mainly, to incite the affect and to overcome theories, chronological dates and movements. Through discussion we will disagree to agree that beauty exists and may not be the same for everyone, but also that it may not need to be. It will be perceived with the five senses, it will be examined through this prism, like an innocent children’s game.

 

* Section 1. Touch (23/10)

* Section 2. Hearing (6/11)

* Section 3. Taste (13/11)

* Section 4. Sight (4/12)

* Section 5. Smell (18/12)

Whirling is a dance and a meditation in movement. The most known reference is the whirling Dervishes. The practice of whirling can offer many and various benefits, it enables us to get in contact with various parts of ourselves – either close to our awareness, or further away from it. Through it we find strength, joy, relaxation, we’re being moved, and we find a sense of liberation – even the possibility of the ecstatic experience.

 

In these workshops, we’ll have the opportunity to introduce the beginners to whirling, to recap many of the basic technique issues that have already been touched upon, but also to go deeper and cover more issues as well. Each weekend holds its own theme, but we also follow the group’s dynamic and the special needs that are being present each time. Whirling workshops are open and accessible to anyone who wants to join, and no special background or knowledge of the subject is required. Each one of us finds their way to whirl according to their body and their psycho-emotional state.

 

* The Whirling workshops will be held at Spiti Yoga under the guidance of Alexandros Farmakis on the following scheduled dates: Weekend 24-25/10 (17.00-21.00 & 13.00-17.00), Saturdays 7/11 & 21/11 (17.00-20.00), Sunday 6/12 (12.00-15.00), and Weekend 19/12 & 20/12 (17.00-21.00 & 12.00-15.00).  Do you have any questions?

A series of seminars through which we will get to know, not only theoretically but also practically, the effects that the mudras have on our material, mental and energy bodies. Each seminar includes a selection of mudras, hatha yoga asanas, pranayama, and meditation, all of which form a comprehensive approach to each subject. It is also important to note that the topics are independent of each other and each lesson is not a continuation of the previous one, as well as that at the end of the class, the thematic theory is provided in electronic form.

 

Mudras are a combination of intelligently provided body postures, which can alter mood, status, and perception as they deepen awareness and concentration. Although the hand mudras (hasta) are the most prevalent in yoga, there are also body (kaya) and conscious (citta) mudras. Each type is thought to have a specific effect on the body and mind, enhancing the mental and energy centers, while the practice of mudras during asanas enhances the effect and properties of the posture.

 

The Mudras, the Energy Transformers series of seminars will take place at Spiti Yoga under the guidance of Marianna Kapsimali within six 3-hour meetings on the following Sundays 11/10 (“Mudras and Yoga practice”), 8/11 (“Mudras: enhancing the lack of fear”), 20/12 (“Mudras and Self-cure”), 24/1 (“Mudras and the Element of water”), 21/2 (“Mudras and the Path to a healing process”), 21/3 (“Mudras – Founding the future”) at 16.00-19.00. The cost for every separate meeting is 20 Euros, while the 6-meeting package costs 90 Euros. Do you have any questions? Please, ask us!

In the first part of the seminar, we explore basic motor skills of our muscles and joints, and various ways of contact and interaction between two bodies. Borrowing elements from different contemporary dance techniques, we learn basic techniques and ways of interaction through muscle pressure techniques (feet, hands, fingers, etc.) and through joints movement.

 

In the second part, we work in couples and offer each other a complete therapy. This includes traditional Thai massage techniques in various positions (prone, supine, lateral and sitting position).

 

* The Thai massage for dummies s06e02 workshop will be held at Spiti Yoga under the guidance of George Androulakis on Saturday 14/11 at 17.00-22.00. Do you have any questions? Please, ask us!

Círculo De palabra is exactly what the words define: a circle of self-knowledge, human contact and discussion.

In shamanic practices it is customary to sit in a circle and share with our family – our friends and fellow human beings – what is happening to us on a mental, emotional and biological level. So we will meet, communicate and share what we have and keep inside.

We will also talk about the healing herbs of the Amazon, their properties, their effect on the human body (biologically, mentally, emotionally) and traditional shamanic healing techniques. The way they work, when they are indicated and when they are not.

The circle is coordinated by the shaman Camillo Oliva, and Katarina Baliova and Ioannis Stavros Golemas.

 

The Círculo De palabra will take place at Spiti Yoga on Friday 20/11 at 21.00-23.00. The meeting is free of charge; however, spot reservations are necessary. Do you have any questions? Please, ask us!

A two-day advanced massage seminar to get acquainted with the intestines (guts) of ourselves and others. Emotional tensions and anxiety, modern lifestyle, inappropriate eating habits, stress levels are some of the factors that justify the expression “I hate my guts”. A quite common phenomenon for sufferers is reflex pain in the lumbar spine: the back hurts, but what really suffers is the abdomen.

 

Unfolding the thread from the anatomy of the area in question, we will enrich our knowledge and perception through the palpation of the abdominal organs. We will learn easy ways to contact the area, along with ways to enter deeper. So, by applying the appropriate techniques we can achieve the absolute relaxation of the receiver, as well as more chances of release from chronic or ephemeral tensions.

 

The seminar is addressed to massage lovers with some experience; to everyone who suffers from visceral pain now and then; to anyone who wants to spend a special weekend full of theoretical knowledge and practice.

 

* The Dynamic Thai massage workshop will be held at Spiti Yoga under the guidance of Vaggelis Baris on the Weekend 12-13/12 [Saturday 15.00-21.00 & Sunday 11.00-17.00]. Its duration is 12 hours and it costs 90 Euros. Do you have any questions? Please, ask us!
