Water Healing

An aquatic bodywork that will enable you to embody the art of true belonging and trust oneness in the fluidity of the water element. We all come from the womb of our mother and we have experienced “floating”. Water is conductive so it can help us remember our true nature, it can facilitate a rebirth experience.

While floating in the water, the absence of gravity releases our vertebrae and allows our spine to move in ways that are not possible on the land. Smooth, progressive movements and manipulations increase our awareness of how much freedom we gain while floating. Our connection with breath takes on a new dimension. We surrender to our companion ’s hands, we synchronize our breathing, we «dance» in slow motion.

A variety of emotions might be released through the continuous flow process. This 'giving' and 'taking' energy experience, can heal any wounds we might carry from separation and enhance the feeling of union and unity with others. 

Water Healing Movement is practiced on the surface of a swimming pool or the sea. It is suitable for participants 12-80 years old and is ideal for individuals, couples, family members, and pregnant women at any stage of their pregnancy.

Apostolia is a certified PADI Rescue Diver. She has choreographed Drops of Breath, the 1st underwater dance performance in the world. She has been teaching water healing and rebirthing in the water for the last 10 years, in various public and private events.

Creative Dance

Everything in nature is Pulse!

We begin by grounding ourselves, in the safe space of a circle, shaking and pulsing to release tension, increase blood circulation and connect with the cosmic energy of the Earth. As we pulse in different levels, our breath expands into sound and our voice can be liberated. We enter a state of profound ancestral connection and our shaking movements awaken the sacredness of our body and manifest the power of its expression.

In union with our pulsing body and voice, we create an entrance to our soul, establishing a deep level of freedom - we reach our euphoric state of being. Our inner “impulses “ for movement transform into dance and we start interacting with each other playing with space and time experiencing a dancing and pulsing community of creative harmony. We are deeply connected with all there is and we become the “Dance”.

Structured through Apostolia’s deep experience in contact improvisation, contemporary dance, Osho Kundalini meditation, traditional and sacred dance forms, this spiritual dance language speaks where words fail;  an abundance of bliss in the heart of existence is created.

Meditation & Mindfulness

Many people are alive but don’t touch the miracle of being alive

You will wake up every morning to the sound of Nature, the healing softness of the sun, breathing consciously, learning how to slow down and how to observe your shelf in a non judgmental way.  Sunset and Sunrise Meditations in breathtaking nature formations, Mindful walks in unspoiled hikes,  will support you to connect with mother Nature and to embody unconditional love so you can be a free human being.

Sharing Circle and Rituals

A ritual is the enactment of a myth. And, by participating in the ritual, you are participating in the myth.

Apostolia's bespoke Rituals are instrumental in marking transition points in life, empowering the feeling of belonging, improving confidence for life changes, and bringing physical and emotional healing.

The sharing Circle will support you to release old patterns and fears, shift perspective and activate new decisions, while simple yet profound rituals will teach you how to fully enjoy your experience and be grateful to yourself, your community, and the earth.

We will sit in a circle as a tribe, holding a safe and sacred space for one another, sharing our intentions of what we are looking to gain during our Blue Bliss Happiness Retreat. By setting intentions we set the foundation for our soul to give us what we need at the present moment in time and connect with like-minded people, from all over the world.

Biomatic Anatomy

Biomatic Anatomy is a holistic method of embodied anatomy, mindful breath & spiritual awareness, the result of continuous study and research of its founder Apostolia Papadamaki. Aims to remind us of the primary instincts of movement and gain experiential and theoretical knowledge about our skeleton & joints and how they work. The belief that the body knows it’s prime perfect nature is established. Movement patterns connect with emotional patterns. In Biomatic Anatomy, we aim to realize our stress movement patterns and to replace them with new ones that will allow the joints to work fully with the necessary muscle involvement. Always connected with our breath, we reclaim our relationship with our body, we heal hidden traumas, we eliminate our fears and we create confidence and euphoria.
