AWAKE RETREAT

CHELSEY KORUS | 2 -7 OCT | mykonos

 
 

THE EXPERIENCE

Boost your confidence, renew your senses, and feel captivated by your life! Chelsey Korus invites you to dig deeper into the concepts of Soul (connection to self), Spirit (connection to something bigger than self), and Environment (connection to others and to nature). She will teach you how these three pillars work together to help you be AWAKE, to have eyes to see your “now".

This journey of awakening the senses couldn't have had a better place to happen than our Mykonos boutique resort where its ethereal nature invites you to unwind and let yourself simply be. A fierce white purity and the natural light defines everything in those 6 days of island wonder and self-revelation. From  a pool almost indistinguishable from the blue horizon to a Greek inspired menu where local ingredients turn into artful dishes and mythical sea adventures, every single detail is there to make you feel AWAKE.

 

THE pRACTICE

Invigorating morning yoga flows and meditation, gentle afternoon yoga practice, journal prompts that will get you out into nature, along with a vision-board opportunity…the activities on this retreat are designed to help you establish practices you can take home and easily implement into your daily life. In addition to movement, you will receive profound nourishment for both body and mind through soul-reviving excursions in Mother Earth, amazing food, and plenty of opportunities for rest and relaxation. Return home feeling whole and AWAKE.

* All practices are open to all levels from beginners to more advanced yogis.
