I began practicing in 2000 and I am greateful for every moment of it. I ‘ve been inspired by many teachers all these years from all over the world. I try to inspire through my teaching by incorporating both physical and spiritual aspects of yoga in my practice and to encourage people looking for their inner journey towards healing and improvement.
Nabil El Barrage / Thai therapist
I will teach a 2 hours thai massage workshop. One to one, body to body you ‘ll be twisted, stretched and have feet, thumbs and fist work your body. Asanas or yoga poses are also part of it. The practice promotes positive energy circulation, so you feel balanced and rejuvinated.
Since 2009, I ‘ve been practicing in Yoga and after two years started to teaching, an engagment that put me in to Therapy and specifically in traditional Thai Massage. In 2013 i completed my training at the Sunshine House. This endlessly developing technique, is the center around which my workshops are conducted and the main tool for me in order to give therapies, when they are needed. My basic target is, to share my knowlege and through compassion and love, engourage people to discover and enable their inner Therapist.
“Fly to the sun” retreat is taking place at the heart of cyclades. Syros island / Ermoupolis with the dynamic character and the cosmopolitan grace of a queen. Sharing a story that unfolds through the winding alleys, the traditional villages that brilliantly orchestrate the medieval with the Cycladic architecture, the Orthodox and Catholic churches, the stunningly beautiful beaches, the azure sea and the magical natural scenery.
Villa Maria is a listed 19th century neo-classical mansion. In restoring it we have preserved all the original features —wooden floors and ceilings, marble bathrooms, decorative mouldings— and used antique furniture to give it a comfortable but authentic feel.
The second floor balconies and the roof terrace have panoramic views over the town, the port and across to the neighbouring islands. Behind the villa is a courtyard with plants, built-in seating and a shaded dining area.
The villa is on a pedestrian street right in the middle of town, yet a haven of peace and quiet. It is 2 minutes walk from the main square and market, and 5 minutes walk from the Vaporia. This is the town’s ‘Little Venice’, a lido with cafes and crystal-clear water for swimming.
Available: Single room / Double room / Apartment for 3-4 person
