Ten Years- Paros
The island where:
I fell in love with Greek islands and the sweet container of Okreblue retreat center.
I met my husband. And found my adopted dog Baloo.
Where I have led retreats and trainings for the last 5 years.
AND where Marc Holzman and I will celebrate our 10th anniversary of collaborating on retreats.
THIS SUMMER we invite you to join us in celebrating our 10th anniversary of our joyful co-teaching collaboration.
Starting in Santa Barbara, our commitment to join one another annually has taken us to Formentera, Malaga, Bavaria, Ibiza and for the last three years Paros.
We love Paros for the turquoise blue Mediterranean Sea, the sweet synthesis of historic and an upsurge of modern creative cultivation, the organic gardens of Okreblue, the phenomenal light quality that sharpens the senses.

The conscious clay of your body moves your bones into an astonishing array of shapes that paint a moving meditation. Explore these different shapes as you practice a sequence that warms up with surya namaskars, modified lizard and garudasana (eagle). Dance through space as you move into ardha chandrasana (half moon), revolved side angle and arm balances like side crane. Be inspired by your own body and make poetry with your practice.
