"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life. "
This quote of John Lennon, revealed to me a life-challenging question, 15 years ago, when along with my international career as a choreographer I started Yoga & Mindfulness incorporating my artistic experience into self-awareness and life’s blissfulness.
My answer was and still is, that the more we discover the miracle of our own self, the more we are at home. Our self is our primary home. As Plato said, recognising beauty starts from within.
I realised that along with me, many other individuals (millions of others) carry inhibitions that prohibit them from living a full and blissful life. So I decided to transmit to other people my personal practice and research. I created the Happiness Retreat partnering with outstanding colleagues that share common values and ideals.
We are aiming to guide people in their search for personal happiness, by inviting them in Greece, a blessed land and giving them the tools to live in the moment, improve their physical and emotional freedom and incorporate meaningful exercise and reflection in their daily lives. Everybody is welcome. We believe that every human can find a new way of living through mindfulness, movement and awareness In our retreats and there are no boundaries of age, body form, nationality, identity.
