Meet your teachers
I am Apostolia, an internationally acclaimed choreographer, performer, and a transformational retreat leader and teacher. I studied Contemporary Dance, Contact Improvisation, Yoga and Alexander Technique in New York. As a lover of healing arts, and spirituality, I am trained in Shamanism, Music, Voice, Diving, Craniosacral Therapy, and Rei-Ki collaborating with inspiring artists, healers, and teachers in many lands.
After 25 years of being a spiritual artist and a life changing teacher, I am honored to share with you the way to freedom, self-love, and creativity inviting Maria as a guest teacher to uplift the experience of vibrational movement and voice.
My highest intention is to keep opening the eyes of the soul and tuning into the frequency of Love no matter how life challenges me. The Happiness Retreat is an open-hearted invitation to share knowledge, experience, and joy with beautiful souls like you!
I am Maria and I navigate through life with music. I sing, I compose songs and I love to teach people how to discover their own authentic voice. Although I am a very shy person, I transform when I go on stage, by connecting to my innermost instinct as a tool to harmonize my body, my vocal cords and my emotions.
The voice for me is a mystical vibration through the spaces of our body and an amazing tool to connect with our deepest self expressing freely our emotions.
Up to now, I have released 6 personal albums, a collectible vinyl entitled “3 Degrees” writing my own lyrics and compositions and ”Correspondence”, my most recent work, collaborating with famous Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis.
I have been collaborating with Apostolia for many years now and I can't wait to share our "alchemy" with you!

We will guide you on how to be happy to be seen, to be heard and to be free to express your self through voice and movement, harmonizing body, mind, and soul so you can embody your true loving nature.
Our circle will support you to be ridiculously creative, to express your self in ways you can never imagine, to find the courage to “fail” and create again and again and again until you are happy and free because you will feel this amazing trust to the beautiful unknown you!
