Invitation to Spring Zoom Workshops

Spring Zoom Series: Unfolding Fresh New Life, Deep Peace, and Joy
Equinox Greetings Friends and Students!

I write this on the ‘day of balance’ between light and dark, night and day, and the first day of

My vision for our next Zoom sessions is all about how and where to let go,
so that with breath and presence we fill the spaces that we have created in this body
with a sense of life and power, connecting us to our own true nature and the joy of Spring.

Unfolding is not without its struggle…..witness a butterfly emerging from its cocoon!
But once free, we are open to receive the gifts of sensation and experience.
We then continue with unfolding and stretching.

Small, intricate movements are very powerful and can help release tight places and a flow of energy throughout your body so that once you come to rest, the very center of your inner world exudes a quiet joy and happiness………even if all around is weird and crazy!

This workshop will be 2 sessions April 6th and 9th (the recording is included so not to worry if you can't join on those days or wish to revisit!).

May you all be well and happy
I look forward a lot to being with you all again and our slow deep journeys!

With love and delight,

Letter to Our Friends (2023 Workshops)

Dear yoga practitioners,

We are looking forward to continue our two- week courses in our yoga hall in the Eftalou valley in 2023! For all you old time visitors: there are some changes that are in the air.

There is a renewed Hotel Molyvos 2 directly underneath us which has promised to open during this coming season. It has a direct access to the Aegean Sea with a wide beach area. We are still uncertain about what is happening with our well-known and loved Eftalou restaurant, since Manolis and Heidi want to stop running it..  every thing else is still fairly unchanged and to us rather unique and special!

We hope to welcome many first time students to discover our slightly different views on what yoga means to us, since our personal yoga practice is continuing to penetrate more deeply into the internal experience of the magic of living.

We hope you will have the opportunity to join us whenever you can.

With our best wishes for your new year of 2023,

angela and victor

Space is your place

Just watching, just observing, just understanding. This is how our lives form and how we unfold into who we are. We learn a lot from the cats that came around us. In our yoga classes we teach about their tails and about their distance they keep between them. Their ability to say NO! And if you have been in our classes, you might remember that advice we sometimes give:”Before you do anything we suggest ( for all we give out are “serving suggestions”), just say no and see what comes up in this waiting time”. For it is all about learning from listening to your self on many levels! As God gave mankind dominion over nature, He gave dominion to Nature itself. To trees who need their own space, to cats needing their own space! And Space is your place also!

This does not mean that you are not able or to cuddle up and wrestle with each other to make “LOVE” or “DEFEND” your own space, for all is part of development and we better play the game to unfold the new rising of insights which come from these chosen actions.

Be attentive to when dominion transforms into domination though! For when you know your place on the chessboard of life and having your own square onto which you find yourself placed with the task to take out the opponent’s king, some personalities (chess pieces) are able to do more than pawns, although pawns come in greater numbers/supporters, all different and not separate parts of who you are….
This means that we have to use our own given dominion to play that game. Your own dominion is your place!

A merry Christmas and a real happy New Year

The real environment is more chaotic then than artificial viral technical ones that promise you a more comfortable lifestyle away from the fearful and unpredictable real world.
A bit of Snow White’s bite in the apple of her stepmother putting her into unconscious sleep. and shouldn’t we all be blessed by a kiss of the prince?
How far do you trust the fake mother in dealing with your beautiful freedom?

We wish you a real Christmas without your tree, onto its trunks Christ was nailed to die.

The real meaning of domes and dominion

According to Genesis, God gave dominion over nature, which is definitely different from domination! In fact it is pointing out that there is a limited amount of space around anything which can be protected. This is because of the limitation that domes create.A king might be able to inherit or conquer a “kingdom” but is that king able to look after this from where he settles down, or does he has to appoint many helpers, who need to be paid and now is forced to demand taxes from the ones that live in his domain. This is the start of domination and control.

These physical domes are self created by the energy stream, the consciousness that runs through the universe since everything began.
( sorry, I forgot to say that what I am writing here has absolutely no use to anyone who believes that the Earth is flat!)
The Earth is a dome as well as stars, moon, planets and our sun. This is the reason why so many treetops end up with different dome shapes according to how much energy they are able to use because of the types of minerals are aválale in the environment. The domes are a welcome limitation in order to contain the rising energy stream to be held and transformed into its own live-giving power. A guarantee to have dominion and contemplation on our given talents and how to use our actions in serving this domain around us.

Like the Bible, there are many other books that come out of the Nature of creation. There are plenty of creative ways to describe our existence on earth. The more the better and it adds to experience the richness of our universe. For we are all fountains of this life force which bubbles up out of seemingly nowhere. Consciousness has a curious side, but no end and no beginning and has no form and no face. So just enjoy your many domes, I would say! And look after your own domain as much as you are able to do, for it will make you happier the deeper you go inside your own domes.
The domes of your arches in your feet
The domes from the lower outer ankles to the higher inner ankles
The dome of your perineum
The dome from your outer hipbones to the higher middle of your sacrum
The dome of your diaphragm
The dome above you lungs in your upper chest
The dome of your upper palate
The dome underneath your scull cap
And all but not least, the ozone layer high above your domes which tells you that with the dome of the earth you are standing on, it is all a gift! Please unwrap it carefully, without cutting it open!
Bless your all, victor
