About this Event

During our time together we will be drawing upon the ancient practices of yoga and meditation as well as emphasize the awareness on our intrinsic interdependence with all beings. We truly would like to promote the idea that by connecting with our inner selves we can connect with the environment around us and bring about a positive way of relating to it. The ancient practices of yoga and meditation arose in a time when nature was all pervasive, thus, there was no need to "connect" to it. However because of our modern lifestyles we are now very distant from nature's cycles and language and this is causing great imbalances within us and in the ecology around us. During our retreat we want to explore these imbalances as well as reawaken our sense of care and compassion for our own bodies, minds and what is outside of ourselves. Our work will therefore happen both on and off the mat.

During our days together, we will be held by the beautiful land of Azula, by its trees, its animals and the people that created the project. Azula is, as a matter of fact an oasis of ecological awareness that promotes off-the-grid living, permaculture and community living. Moreover, not distant is the ocean to which we will go on regular visits and learn to listen to its stories as well as enjoy its refreshing quality.

In addition to the above we will enjoy time spent together and alone. We hope that this will be more than just a yoga retreat but a time to truly reconnect with yourselves, nature and others, and a time to reawaken your love for this Earth. If you enjoy playing an instrument or have any other passion you would like to share please don't hesitate to bring it along as we will have free nights dedicated to building a sense of community and joy.

Emilia, is a poet, mover, yoga and meditation teacher and deep nature lover. She is originally from Rome, Italy but has now been living around the world for the last years. She has been studying and practicing yoga and meditation for the last 10 years. She earned certificates in yoga, studying in particular with Angela Farmer on the island of Lesvos, and has undergone several meditation intensives with her teachers. Her interest has always been in learning ways to bridge our inner and outer landscapes. She has earned a B.A in Philosophy but since then has gone on numerous learning journeys that have fed her own growth and curiosity. She has spent time with indigenous people, learning from their deep knowledge of nature, has earned certificates in movement and dance and is now undergoing a masters in Expressive Arts Therapy. She truly believes that the more we open ourselves to our "natural way of being", the more we will live a joyful, meaningful and compassionate life.

Eduardo Terzidis is a yogi, surfer and permaculture designer. He is Italian-Brazilian, born in Rome and has been living around the world during the last years. He has graduated as a Mechanical Engineer and soon realized that the 9 to 5 , suit and tie, life was not for him. Since then, he has hit the road on a journey to discover himself and to break the patterns of modern society. This journey led him to Yoga, which he has started practicing with Nick Larsen. He sees Yoga as way to connect to our true selves and after years of personal study, Eduardo started teaching yoga in Italy, Australia and Austria. His work focuses on shifting modern patterns towards more sustainable ones in order to create a more eco-logical future for our own selves and the environment around us.
