ABOUT THE TEACHER
Sandra discovered yoga at the age of 5 with her aunt in order to balance her other sport activities. After quitting a career in computer science she embarked on an incredible journey of travels and training all over the world.. Along the way she had the opportunity to study with many international yoga teachers and had the immense privilege to spend 3 months in Hawaii on the Big Island to study and practice with Norman Allen, one of the biggest Ashtanga masters still alive. During her travels she also took trainings in thai massage, energetic healing, and hypnosis. Today, her teaching is a blend of all her inspiration, from a challenging Vinyasa with handstands & arm balances to a restorative & therapeutic practice. She loves leading retreats where she can share the many aspects of living a healthy & happy lifestyle with yoga. Read more about Sandra here!
ABOUT THE RETREAT
Sandra draws from Mykonos' wild nature and seascapes to create a refreshing mind-body-soul experience. The day starts with rituals and meditation awakening the mind and preparing the body for an energising Vinyasa practice. Each day is dedicated to a specific practice or body part enriched by Sandra’s healing work on chakras and energy guiding. Evening practices unfold with more subtle sessions bringing a blend of yoga nidra, yin yoga and restorative poses which help to absorb morning asanas in a more beneficial way and enjoy the beauty around us. A special yoga class and ceremony will be dedicated to Delos ancient energy and the history of the place combining ritual, chanting and powerful asanas to awaken the Shakti. Let the magic begin!
* All practices are open to all levels from beginners to more advanced yogis and restricted to a small number of guests (10-15).
