After our fun-filled days exploring the wonders of Kundalini Yoga, there will be plenty of time for you to relax, and soak in the beauty and nature that Crete has to offer, and create your own adventures. Every 7th day is a "free-day" and you can enjoy an array of activities like relaxing on the beach right in front of the hotel or exploring the surrounding beaches, or take excursions where you can check out the beautiful and historic nearby areas. You don't want to miss this awesome summer in Greece!
The Training comprises the general study of Kundalini yoga, and Maya’s “Yoga For Real Life” which is a combo of Kundalini, Thai Chi, Qi Gong, breathing, and yoga exercises. Maya’s way of teaching is different from others; she makes the knowledge very accessible, giving you all the information in an easy-to-grasp, down-to-earth manner. By the end, you will master your breath (“master your breath, master your life”). Maya composes her own music for all her teachings as music is an important part of her teaching, and as part of the course, you’ll get tons of tracks to use.
