Yoga Program

This program intends to give birth to a new breed of yoga teachers. Participants that will emerge out of this program will have experienced what yoga is really about and will have achieved a significant shift in consciousness.

The trainees will have the opportunity to receive a certification 200Hr Yoga Alliance accepted throughout the world and will be capable to lead a class of students in all the different types of asanas, pranayama, meditations, mudras, bandhas and sound healing. However, this program will also be ideal for people that do not seek to practice yoga as a profession but who would like to go deeper in their own practice and to experience a shift in consciousness that will empower them in all the different aspects of their lives.

Further to successful completion of the program and further practice, candidates will also have the possibility to receive additional certifications to enable them to take part and lead trainings of new teachers in this conscious form of yoga.

The program will last for three weeks of intense work after which their first Yoga Alliance certification could be granted. However, the attendee can continue to be supported by the instructors for an additional 6 months, practice and apply the tools received and an additional certification could be received. Over this period of 6 months, participants will be able to ask questions and will be supported with extra materials, coaching and mentoring.

The practitioner will be exposed to:

  • All 4 main types of yoga: Karma, Bhakti, Jnana, Raja
  • The 8 limbs of yoga: Yamas, Niyamas, Asanas, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, Samadhi
  • Various sub-yogas: Hatha, Yin, Kirtan, Vinyasa, Restorative, Ashtanga
  • Different aspects of yoga such as Yoga Mundras, Chanting, Bhandas, Human Anatomy, the scientific benefits of yoga
  • Different terms of yoga such as: Ashtanga, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Chakra, Koshas, Namaste, Niyama, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Samadhi, Satsang, Surya Namaskara, Vinyasa, Vipassana, Sushmana, Prana, Apana, yin yang, Ahimsa, Satya, Asteya, Brahmacharya, Aparighara, Shaucha, Samtosha, Tapas, Svadhyaya, Ishvara Pranidhana

First week

The program will last for three weeks and the first week will focus on asanas. Every day of this first week will focus on a particular type of asanas. After a break, a swim and lunch, the afternoon sessions will be about practising further and going deeper into what you learned in the morning.

Second week

The second week you will practise asanas together in the morning, and in the afternoons, you will focus on yoga philosophy, pranayama, human anatomy and different types of meditations.

Over the second week, participants will become much more capable of controlling their life energy by removing limiting beliefs and by revitalizing their different energy centers.

Attendees can expect to explore new viewpoints on different aspects of their life and as a result, experience more trust, abundance, mental, physical and sentimental balance, greater self-esteem and self-confidence, compassion, non-attachment, and to be more capable of communication at all the different levels.

Third week

The third week, you will become more comfortable with teaching as you will practice teaching to your fellow students.

Although every day and week will be different, there will also be similarities throughout the weeks. Every morning participants will meditate together with an experienced meditator, there will be plenty of time for swims, breaks, hammock time and massages. There will also be excursions to beaches and places of interest on the island, dinners out and plenty of summer outdoor movie nights - the perfect way to chill out after an interesting and fruitful day of training.

Sound Healing, Aromatherapy and Bach Remedies

You will have the opportunity to participate in several sound healing classes and you could also be given an introduction in how to provide aspects of sound healing to others. You will also have the opportunity to receive aromatherapy and flower remedies and upon request and depending on availability you can also have an introduction into aromatherapy and flower remedies as well. This can also lead to further certifications into these areas through affiliated academies and programs since they believe the yoga teacher of the future maintains a healthy stack of tools and methodologies to assist and support others.

Included excursions

There are 2 exciting excursions included in the package. The excursions are typically to a cultural site called Olympos and to beaches (Lefkos beach). These may vary depending weather conditions.

Things to do (optional)

A Healing stay at Kathys Island Retreat with Conscious Yoga Academy

Kathys island Retreat, Conscious Yoga and Conscious Sound Healing Academies have come together to offer a unique retreat experience that will offer you exactly what you need and are looking for. Greater connection with yourself, nature, the sea, amazing Mediterranean food, yoga of different kinds and a whole range of healing modalities. They call it the Kathy's Island Retreat experience.

Sound healing. The fastest way to calm an overactive mind, release tensions from the body and stuck emotions and energy. Making use of Gongs, crystal singing bowls and tuning forks there is no way you aren’t going to love these. Price: 30 EUR. (minimum people required: 2)

Bach flower remedy consultation (incl. 2 remedies). Bach was an intuitive doctor with a practice in London who managed to establish a way to extract the healing essence of the flowers and use it to heal disharmonious psychological tendencies in human beings. Fear, guilt, shame, stress and an overactive mind can be a thing of the past. Price: 80 EUR.

Emotion code. The Emotion Code is a powerful and simple way to rid yourself of unseen emotional baggage that a subject might carry. Most people are unable to fully process emotions as they occur, the emotional energy remains trapped in the body interfering with physical and emotional health and disrupting a normal and full life. They use Dr. Nelson's method and tools to identify and release these emotions so that the subject can be relieved from the emotional baggage of the past. Price: 40 EUR.

Past life regression. This method uses a combination of meditation and biofield tuning techniques to bring the subject to a high state of consciousness giving them the opportunity to access past lives, retrieve important information, gain a new understanding of events in their lives, receive guidance and useful information as what they are here to do and connect with loved teachers, relatives, and friends. A truly life-changing experience as admired by all participants. Price: 150 EUR.

Energy healing. From the Yogic perspective the human being has 72,000 energy channels, called nadis and the way energy flows through these channels is closely linked to how one feels, how one thinks and how one is in the world. A must session for those that want a radical shift and reset in their lives. Price: 60 EUR.

Massage. This is a must at Kathys Island Retreat and the most popular way to start a healing process. It helps to release tension from the muscles, for the body to open up and to be exposed to the elements as it often takes place outdoors underneath the trees. Upgrade to a "magic" massage and you additionally get a combination of energy healing, aromatherapy and accupressure included in the session for maximum effect. Price: 65 EUR

Hiking and meditation. Ancient Yogis have been known to walk great distances in nature. This is a great way to reconnect with nature, get the body moving, burn calories and calm the mind. Price: 40 EUR.

Detox juicing. Juicing is a tried and tested way to detoxify the body. Through using local and organic products (upon request at extra charge) and the top of the line cold press juices they ensure that you receive the maximum benefit from the essence of the vegetables and fruits and potentially loose weight as well. Price: 35 EUR.

Aromatherapy. Aromatherapy can be achieved in different ways. The way that is proposed here is the application of essential oils in the back of the client using the methodology and essential oils developed by doctors at DoTERRA, one of the leading providers of therapeutic/pharmaceutical grade oils. Alternatively, you can always find different mixes available at the shop which you can apply on your skin, smell, and uplift. Price: 45 EUR.

Meditation. Meditation is this beautiful ancient art of calming the mind and reconnecting with your essence, your inner peace, and joy. Many people believe that they are not good at meditation and give up but you have all the tools you need to excel in this practice. Price: 20 EUR.

Reflexology. Healing through the feet. Healing in Reflexology can be achieved by working on different points of the foot corresponding to different parts of the body. Reflexology, also known as zone therapy, is an alternative medical practice involving the application of pressure to specific points on the feet, ears, and hands. This is done using thumb, finger, and hand massage techniques with or without the use of oil or lotion. Price: 60 EUR.

Biofield Tuning. This healing modality scans your energetic field for misalignments and with the help of tuning forks makes adjustments that can have profound effects in all areas of one's life. Price: 100 EUR.

Also ask Conscious Yoga Academy for lessons or experiences in kitesurfing, windsurfing, surfing, scuba diving, SUP, horse riding, car rental, scooter rental and boat excursions.
