Yogadventures Presents:

Full Moon Prana Flow Summer Program in Delphi - July 23 - 29, 2021


Enjoy our summer Prana Flow yoga and movement movement immersions as we create a "sacred shala" in the ancient mountains of Delphi overlooking the sea. We honor this sacred place of the “dolphins” (Delfini), also known as the “the navel of the world”.

We will listen to the power of nature within and in the sacred temples, holy springs, ancient fire, and invigorating prana- bathed in the ancient space of Delphi.

Our Immersion includes 6 hrs of (morning and afternoon) movement meditation, sacred study and pilgrimage within Delphi and the ancient pathways down to the sea where pilgrims from around the world came to walk through the same. Millions of olive trees to the sacred Castilia Springs and some of the oldest shrines to the Great Mother, Gaia from there the pathways continue to the forrest where the Maenades or earliest female dance tradition in Greece.


In this mythic landscape we will have a summer base in which to explore Delphi in safe, outdoor, meditation explorations. We will provide the hub and curation of daily Yogadventures and nourishment and you can choose the accomodation and greek feasting that suits your rhythm and budget.

Our "studio" will be in nature as we are free to roam with the Samudra's custom "silent-sound-system" headsets offering Shiva's guidance with alchemical music mixes in open, social respectful spaces.

All are free to be in our open circle offering of yoga, prana flow movement meditation and free-form movement by the ocean, in the mountains, on pilgrimage trails, meadows, mountain peaks, forests and ruins of some of the earliest movement meditation forms.

Experience the sacredness of retreat to fertilize your embodiment, teaching, and life in our sacred pilgrimage to Delphi - “the navel of the world” in one of the most sacred landscapes where the ancient temples in the mountains overlook the sea and the local Greek food, culture and music nourisheses the soul.
